SIS: Your thoughts on LOST finale (SPOILERS likely)


I couldn't find a LOST discussion anywhere and, like most LOST fans, I am itching for a discussion. I have a ton of thoughts but am too tired to lay them all out, so I'll just hit a few points:

1) I am amazed by the number of people who think Oceanic 815 crashed in the beginning and the whole island was a figment of Jack's imagination. The End is obviously open to debate, but that's just wrong-headed. You would have had to have come into the finale with that conclusion in mind to even fathom that that's what happened, and even then there's just way too much going against that to still believe it to be true. Can we all here agree the island happened, the characters all died eventually and then went the sideways Purgatory Place to get ready for their final afterlife?

2) That being said, there are plenty of valid criticisms with the way they wrapped it up. If you're an answers fan or a mythology fan or a sci-fi fan, you probably didn't like the finale. It was a hardcore character fest. Personally, I really liked it.

3) There was an implied unhappy ending for Sawyer, Claire and Kate, I thought. The fact that Kate said she missed Jack implies she lived on for some time after the island, and we can assume the same for Claire and Sawyer. But in this ending, the Island was still the most important times of their lives. I think this means they either died a relatively short time after leaving, or they led relatively unfulfilling lives once they got home. Bittersweet?

That's all I've got at this moment. What did you guys think? Too sappy? Not enough answers? Just right?
