Episode 6x16 / Re: Unnecessary Escape...
« on: May 30, 2010, 02:26:08 PM »
But since the entire point of the 5th season was to rescue everyone on the island and bring them back, now they leave people behind again.  And Jack basically wanting to commit suicide because of the guilt of leaving those people behind.  Now Hurley is expendable?  Nope, sorry, doesn't sit well with me.

What? How did you come to the conclusion that Jack was wanting to "commit suicide" due to guilt of the people left behind? Seriously, I have ZERO idea where you got that from.

I think the reference was to when bearded, strung-out Jack was going to jump off the bridge, before he got distracted by having to rescue the people who were in the car crash.

Again, the idea that the "entire point of season 5" was to get everyone off the island is false.

Not entirely false -- your examples show that Kate went back to get Claire to bring her back to Aaron, and Sun went back to get Jin and bring him back.  I think Jack started out by thinking he had to go back to "rescue" everyone and at that point he thought it probably meant he had to bring them back with him, not that he'd have to do what he ended up doing.  Hurley, Sayid, Lapidus, Ben... yeah, not coming back for a rescue so much, I agree.
You're apparently the only one who understood my simple argument.

Yeah, but as far as everyone on the plane was concerned, the island was going to sink and Hurley was going to die.

Or why did Juliet create a marriage and divorce with Jack and a son that apparently ceases to exist once they remember?  And did they have actual births and lives in the sideways or is it more like the Matrix?

With so many people discussing what they didn't like about the finale I thought why not a thread of the favorite parts of the finale. I loved the expression on Hurley's face when he went and got Charlie. He was so happy!
Favorite parts are probably ending with Jack's eye closing, and Juliet and Sawyer reconnecting.  And I liked seeing Christian again.  And the fiery pit that seemed to lead to Hell was a nice image.

The plane escape doesn't sit well with me either.  It was pretty worthless, and I don't like that they can easily leave and not care about at least leaving Hurley behind.  Oh well.  I wish they did a lot of things different for the finale but it is what it is.  I can only hope Lindeloff and Cuse will read my brilliant suggestions and bring everyone back to reshoot the Lost Finale: Maxor127 Cut.

I don't think the statue had anything to do with it.  I think the fact that the statue was destroyed way back when Richard arrived kills that theory since we've seen other people give birth on the island.  Believing the statue caused it is too much speculation for me, even for Lost.  I think the entire point of Amy giving birth was to show us that the island didn't have fertility problems yet.

If I had to choose a theory, I'd go with the Incident theory, but I'm still unclear as to what the Incident is.

Episode 6x16 / Re: Jack is a smoke monster?
« on: May 29, 2010, 11:16:14 PM »
I think a good ending would've been Jack becoming a smoke monster as a result of being in the light, like what happened to MIB.  Then he'd end up becoming the same thing he just destroyed.  I do like the ending of Jack dying and closing his eye.  I think a lot of things could've been tied together in a more satisfying way... especially the sideways world.

Hmmm... I was right about Christian being dead... about Locke being the smoke monster... that Sawyer and Ben would turn out good... that Sawyer would replace Jack as group leader at some point... that MIB would have a sympathetic backstory... that Jack would die and that the island would need another candidate to replace him... that's all I can remember right now...

I was wrong about Sayid and Shannon in the sideways... that Jacob was evil too... and lots of other stuff

I didn't like Sayid/Shannon at all.  It may have been the most ridiculous thing to happen on this show of frozen donkey wheels, magic light, and Ben/Rousseau hookups.  It's probably the only thing on the show I'll have trouble ever buying into.

That's exactly what I figured it was.  Stupid ABC.

I like the idea of the island rising again.  I think what they could have done was instead of having the characters move on from the sideways world into heaven(?), somehow they could have made the sideways version of the island their own heaven, because perhaps that is where they were happiest in their lives.  This is not to say that the island was heaven in the main timeline.
Yeah, that's exactly what I've been saying too.  They could even leave that final scene how it is, and have them step into the light and be back on the island following a scene of it rising again.  Work that in and edit in Sawyer shooting MIB, and I think I'd be satisfied with the finale.

Off the top of my head, Sawyer strangling the real Sawyer to death.  Excellent scene.

Was I the only one waiting for Ben to strangle Hurley with the rope?
