Well, it’s over. I can’t believe that there’s no more ‘Lost’. This is going to be a major hole in my TV-watching life. I intend to have a full recap with a lot of thoughts about the finale soon, but I’m short on time and still processing it. For now, I can just give my immediate gut reaction.
Overall, I found it pretty satisfying. There were a number of really amazing, overwhelmingly emotional moments in the episode. However, I’m of mixed feelings about the ultimate twist revelation about the Flash Sideways storyline. On the one hand, it makes perfect sense. On the other hand, it does feel like something of a cheat. It’s not anything like that atrocious ‘Life on Mars’ finale, mind you. And thank heavens I was way off base with my kooky theory on Friday. Still, I need some time to think about this and sort out my feelings.
For what it’s worth, I don’t buy into Jimmy Kimmel’s “one brief moment” theory. At all. But I’ll cut the guy some slack. He had to host a live special immediately after the episode had just finished airing. He probably needs more time to think about it as well.
More to come on this. It may be a day or two, though. I have a two-hour ’24’ finale and a two-hour ‘Chuck’ finale to watch tonight. Season finale time can be pretty stressful!
