I know I've slacked off this season but I couldn't let my Schlosties down for the series finale! I can't believe after 6 years and 2 years of writing this blog, it's over! Schlost started off as water cooler talk, then into an email between a few people in my department. And now, it's The End.
I have to say, along with Six Feet Under this has been the best series finale, ever. I am not disappointed. Even though I was disappointed in this season and I had so many questions, some of which will not get answered, I did learn to accept that. And the show still left it up to interpretation. When did they all die- upon the crash? It looked like that from the final scene, however, Christian said some died at different times.. Did Sawyer, for example, survive the crash & meet Juliette on the island? Juliette said they would meet for coffee one day.. she knew they would see each other again. Brutha always said to Jack, see you in another life. Did they die when their eyes opened in the flashbacks? Maybe they all did die on the plane and these lives were just a flash occurrence of their lives.
Or, if everyone died at different times, some before Jack, some years after Jack, this was just their reunion in the afterlife. They all looked like how they did in 2004-2007 because that is how Jack remembered them. Sawyer, Kate, Claire, and the others on the plane DID really leave the island and presumably lead long lives…Hurley and Ben stayed on the island for presumably many, many years.
The sideways life was all along a heaven (flash heaven!) they all had to redeem themselves and when the time was right, they made it to heaven. Ben wasn't dead yet he still had to redeem himself, work things out and maybe find some of the people that meant something to him. (Alex).
Desmond was the angel Gabriel. I had a feeling Hurley might become the candidate, because he was always the one that was good. He brought them all together. And Eloise asked if Desmond was taking Daniel and he said not yet. So Desmond only communicated with the dead people in the sideways.
The Lost Series Finale takes place today on Pentecost Sunday (Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples of Christ, also described as the Birth of the Church). Jack was always considered to be the Chris like figure in the series. Sheppard- leader of the flock.
Sawyer said to Jack that he was coming down the mountain top w/ a burning bush refers to Moses who led his people out of Egypt to the promise land after years of Egyptian slavery.
I was glad Rose & Bernard are living their lives in peace with Vincent. That got wrapped up!
I noticed Miles had gray hair right away and wondered why.. it was to tie in Richard's mortality. Where was Richard... does he die? or had he died long ago so wasn't part of this group? Eventually those who left the Island did die in their lives, but in the afterlife no one could move on until they found the people that had the greatest impact on their lives.
Glad we had a Drive Shaft reunion.. but we didn't get to hear "You All Everybody!" Although they are playing it on Kimmel!
I liked the end room with all the symbols, the ying yang, the cross, the arabic symbol, the jewish star, the captain wheel & the chinese symbol. Representation of all the people, mainly the candidates.
sorry i know this may be all over the place.. i need the night to think about it.. and do another marathon. I'll probably comment on my blog again throughout the week.
Well, it's been a fun run and one of the best- if not THE best shows in TV history. I'm so sad it's over.. thanks to all my readers for the support..
Signing off of Schlost.
