woohoo. this is gonna be long. i’ve been working on it for a few days. let’s start with the prediction outcomes:
1- who died? while i was right about michael and jin, i have to admit i was really surprised that des didn’t kick the bucket. lost just doesn’t let a couple finally be happy together, so as much as i loved seeing him and penny reunite, i have charlotte’s eery statement in the back of my head that “nothing is forever.” enjoy it while you can i guess. penny’s gonna have to hide from daddy for the rest of her life, and maybe that’s why charles widmore told ben that he wouldn’t be able to find penny… her own father didn’t even know where she was. but back to the whole people who did die… i felt horrible that jin didn’t make it. i really thought that he would save the day and figure out how to cut the bomb off. i’ll tell you one thing though, sun needs at least an emmy nod for that reaction. that scream sent chills down my spine to say the least.
and keamy… yeh i could care less about him actually dying, but the whole “dead man’s trigger” thing was unreal. i wasn’t quite right about him getting mad and triggering it himself, but at least i did figure out that it was the trigger. yesssss…. and how bout ben going ballistic on him? crazy. crazy ben. crazy.
2- how they got off the island. yes we saw how the oceanic 6 get off the island, although it played out a little differently than what i thought. and penny found them, not the coast guard. again, great scene with penny and desmond. i loved hurley getting all smart with jack “um… cause the island was there and then it wasn’t so if you have a better explanation… i’d love to hear it dude.”
3- what happened to the freighties and ben. it would have been cool if the freighties and keamy would have lived so they could start a war next season, but the others came to the rescue with the help of sayid and kate and killed them all. ben on the other hand is crafty (you know, where he’s good at crafts.. and stuff) and i seriously don’t doubt that he always has a plan. up unto the very end of the entire series of lost i bet you ben has it all planned out. while the whole “i hope your happy jacob” comment was a little too cheesy for me, it was cool to see how he got that cut on his arm and ended up in the desert in “the shape of things to come.”
4- the whole claire thing. okay, lost usually doesn’t scare me, and perhaps it was because david was out of town and not there watching it with me, but can i get a show of hands as to how badly claire freaked me out? ahhhh i get chills still just thinking about it. the music in lost makes it though. hats off to michael giacchino for the score. bling! waaaaaaaaahhhhHHHHHHH!!!!! BOM! (that was me trying to sing it for you on here. did it work?) anyways, i’m still stickin to my theory. she’s dead. she’s not only dead, she’s super dead. but she doesn’t want kate to bring aaron back because he “must not be raised by an other.” i’m itching to find out what “horrible things” happened after they all left…. according to what jeremy bentham/locke told jack. i doubt they were all jack’s fault, but whatever. we’ll see.
5- jacob. really no mention of him besides the whole move the island thing… then ben’s cute comment.
6- christian shephard. yep, he made his appearance. jack didn’t see him though. and i bet he’s glad he didn’t, cause he would be blown up just like michael.
7- locke’s phrase. wow, none in the episode. i did enjoy jenn’s comment of “8 times less than hurley says dude!” classic.
8- ghosts. claire and christian, like i said. and i really was hoping that the man coming down the elevator in the orchid was marvin candle, but i was wrong. only on the video tape. speaking of the video tape, how ironic was it that the whole tape about time traveling bunnies started to rewind itself (and go back in time)? just a little something to snicker about. clever, producers. clever.
9- how it ended up. i saw on good morning america that they had to tape three different people in the casket, so even no one in the show knew who it was gonna be until the episode aired. one was locke (obviously). the other two were sawyer and desmond. i thought it was interesting. and the island moved, so they couldn’t get back which was predictable. all in all, i must say i was not disappointed in this finale. it was unreal, and i’m still trying to think everything out in my head.
and now, theories for next season while i have it fresh:
– i know i said that jin died, but i’m almost wondering if he was just thrown off the boat by the blast and then got picked up by daniel faraday and the other people who were on their way? hey, it could happen. haven’t you seen joe versus the volcano? the volcano blew them out, so we can keep our fingers crossed. plus, sun needs a happy ending in my book.
– locke turns crazy. wait. this already happened.
– charlotte. ya know, i’m wondering if this is annie? but i think ben would have known that, and when he went through her entire history at the beginning of the season i think we would have had a clue. but she said she was looking for where she was born. we never did see what happened to annie, so there’s a chance.
– juliette and sawyer become sawliette. i mean, how obvious is it? ben’s gone, so he can’t kill sawyer, and kate’s gone, so juliette can take her place. it’s perfect.
– somehow the oceanic 6 gets back to the island. (besides, ben has a plan… duh) next season will be their journey to get there with the finale being getting there. meanwhile, i think we will see some island action.
welp, that’s all i have so far. until next season, stay lost.
