I gave it a seven.
Huge negatives:
Ghost Locke is the evil guy. Locke is really dead.  :P
Instead of Ben stabbing Locke, he does what Locke said.  ::)
Juliet's death is nowhere in the same league as Charlie's death.
We see the Blackrock arrive, but it was kind of a let down.

Pluses:
Sawyer beats up Jack.
We find out what lies in the shadow of the statue... something in Latin.  :-\
We saw Jack's eye.
Bernard and Rose were living a nice life with Vincent.

I voted during the 1st commercial break.  This episode was epic!

Epic is the word.  The loop was found - Jacob was killed.  But the loop to save him, Locke, all of them has been opened - Juliet saved them.  Faraday was right - they changed it all.  I am practically speechless.

10. Anyone who votes otherwise is overly critical, in my opinion.

The only downside was Rose and Bernard have turned into hippies. It's 1977. The hippies were 10 years ago, people.

I gave it a 9.  Anyone who votes 10 is easily pleased in my opinion. j/k  I just had to contradict JB's character judgment.  You know.  I had to just for tradition.

That was a great episode.  It's amazing how the writers weave the answers into the episodes.  This episode was fantastic in that regard.  I am so glad that they decided on a number of seasons to finish the show.  I think that the time limit helped maintain the story and creative integrity of the show.  I love that the episode ended with the bomb explosion, but a part of me hates it, as well.  Because of that, truly anything is possible on Lost.  There can be so many theories but the destiny truly lies with the writers.

I love this show, but I hate it so much because it teases me.  But I like how there is so much continuity.  It's so awesome that Lost can do shout outs to itself in these later episodes.  Like when Sun finds Charlie's ring, etc.  Way to follow-up, writers.  Nice job.

I gave it a 9.

Pluses
Opening scene,
The losties were recruited and brought to the island by Jacob.
illana turned out to be interesting.
Locke is not really Locke was awesome. Never saw that surprise coming.
Kate looked great in the tight t shirt and jeans.
Bernard and Rose story was great. It made perfect sense to me and they appeared the most sane out of all of them

Negatives.
THe wishy washyness of the Losties. Juliet changed her mind on blowing up a hydrogen bomb because of a look Sawyer gave Kate.
I just thought we were past the kate/sawyer/juliet stuff.
Found some of it a little slow.

Outstanding episode.  I finally got to watch it Saturday afternoon.  Jacob and Essau continually replaying the game reminded me of the ending of Men in Black, with the Earth just being a marble in the alien game of life.  Or was that just TPTB toying with us again?

Yes, there were some sour points.  I agree with Juggy that Juliet changing her mind because of the way Sawyer looked at Kate is an idiotic reason.  But boy, I kept trying to guess what was in the box but never guessed Locke.  Some of the strings of posts on the front page are really excellent in theorizing how this changes everything we think we've seen up to this point.  Only Lost can change everything on a dime and get away with it.  In fact it keeps bringing us back for more.

A definitive 10.

Oh, dear.  I voted 7 because I don't want Lost to be a game.  And I didn't like the introduction of two supernatural beings playing with our Losties.  I'm really happy to see Rose, Bernard and Vincent again.  I liked the finale better the second time I watched it, but it's still a 7 in my book just because I'm not left with the feeling that I just can't wait for the new season to begin.  I can wait.

I was disapppointed that we did not get a better look at the statue, after being promised one.  I did not like Juliet's supposed reason for changing her mind.  I think she still likes Jack.  I did like her death better than Charlie's because at least hers made sense!  I liked Charlie, and feel that his death was stupid and unnecessary. 
I think it is cool that Hurley looks to be more important than we thought!
Gave it an 8.  Not as good as some other eps, but pretty good.  Wish thy hadn't had two episodes in one night.

Even though I knew form a leak on Yahoo that Elizabeth Mitchell's character was going to die as she signed on for a new show, her death scene was well done, even if totally stolen form Beneath The Planet of The Apes. Locke really being dead was quite a shocker.  Glad for the actor Terry O'Quinn that he gets to now play a whole new character. But I don't want Lost to be a battle between Jacob and whom I think is Esau (or smokey like picture in the cave)>  Found it interesting that when Jacob went to see out Losties did not touch Juliet or Miles. And he knew Ilana. Plus he had gloves on, why? Why did he know her? Egyptian mythology means she is a healer. Will she bring him back to life?

But want the focus of the show to stay on the survivors not go too far astray with the Egyptian mythology.

Is Juliet dead?  I thought everyone would survive as the time reset.

Everyone has done a great job articulating how I have felt about the show.  My big thing is this is a game.

What I loved about the show was Rose, Bernard and Vincent.  They made peace with their surroundings.
Oh Jack,Sawyer, Kate , Juliette ugh roll over let me just throw up.

I admit that the show did not hold my attention for two hours, I organized a sock drawer and the bathroom drawer.  Wow over counter meds do expire, found a ring and a bunch of broches for Lakie to wear this summer.

Very sad indeed.  Don't get me wrong there was some good stuff but heck I didn't bother to watch a second time.  :-\
