Yay! I can finally talk about the “The End” of LOST!
Photos from ABC, released after LOST “The Candidate” (6×14) aired.
You can see the tubing or whatever she’s got under her top to simulate being hit by a bullet. Not scary at all.
My significant finally watched The LOST Season 6 finale, “The End,” so I can finally talk to him about it! And write about it.
It only took him a month! We didn’t have time tonight to talk LOST’s ending other than when we were walking the dogs but I advised him to not think too hard about the very ending.
I’ve had a month to chew it over and speaking only for me–a viewer of the show from day one Season 1, ( la-de-da –I know. There are many of us) I wish they left it at Jack dying with Vincent laying next to him (alive) in the field as the Ajira plane piloted by Frank (impossibly) took off from Hydra island carrying the last LOSTies.
Jack, prone on the ground hears the plane before he looks up to see it appearing to successfully leave the island. If you think about it he saved his family. Claire, his half-sister and his former fiancee and in his mind soul mate, Kate–both on that plane. Then Sawyer and other people Jack didn’t really care about/ know very well.
I count Richard as being a half-LOSTie because he was brought there not of his own will. He’s been every bit a captive of that Island but we’ll never know –in totality–how much because wtf? Richard did not make it to the end of The End? He escaped the Island with Sawyer, Claire, Kate, Frank & Miles.
Richard played a large role in LOST, ultimately. Nestor Carbonell’s solo episode that told his story was one of the highest- rated episodes of Season 6. People really liked it and it was all Richard, pretty much. Ben could be invited into the (for lack of better words) “waiting room” but not a thought to Richard!? Does not compute.
But Ritchard is just one beef I have with the whole “reunification of ex-LOSTies.” There was someone there that in no way belonged there unless you literally construe a dumb excuse. Shannon and Sayid??? Was Darlton watching their own show? ’cause in no way was Shannon Sayid’s soul mate. You can’t have made a life soul mate in 45 days or however long Shannon lasted through season one of LOST. Nadia was years of Sayid’s life. We the audience watched seasons of Sayid pining over Nadia’s photo. But we have to shoehorn Shannon in because Maggie Grace’s schedule opened up? Really?
I would have been fine without her.
Also :ahem Libby :ahem:.
What was she doing there other than for exactly and no other reason than Hurley?
Contrived. Didn’t work.
Screen caps. More later.
