What’s your favorite mind-bending show? OK…since The X-Files?
That’s right! This show has been one of my favorites throughout college and beyond, even with its convoluted plot, nail-biting-tear-jerking cliffhangers, and events which we never saw coming–and even if we kind of did, there’s NO way we saw it coming the way it actually happened.
I have NOT seen the end, so there really can’t be any spoilers here, but I have a few predictions which, as so many of the endings have been with Lost, I’m sure this will be COMPLETELY out of the blue as well.
I am betting that the final scenes will either be:
- There will be a HUGE manly man fight (maybe in smoke form?) between Jack and Locke–and Locke, or both of them, will be thrown into the pit of light.
- My personal favorite theory is that Jack wake up exactly as we first met him: lying in the jungle just after the plane has crashed, all of this has been a dream, but now Jack has a sense of purpose and fewer daddy issues…
There’s the–hopefully–epic finale on tonight, and I just have to say that, while I’m sad the show is over, it’s good they went out while on top, not steadily declining until cancellation. They’re ending on their own terms, messing with our heads the whole way.
So, pretty soon we won’t be Lost anymore, but it was fun while it lasted.
