First I wanted to thank everyone on this forum for entertaining me during the periods between each episode. I enjoyed really every post, no matter how crazy the ideas were.
Now after some days after the finale, i had time to rethink “The End” a little bit and I think, I got a pretty good feeling for myself to what happened in the Series-Finale.
The first thoughts after the Show were, that whole LOST was a similar story to the movie “Jacob’s Ladder”. In that sense, everything that happened in LOST was “made up” by Jack himself to find peace for himself, so he can enter heaven. That ending would have been half-point higher, than somebody waking up in an airplane and finding out that it was just a dream.
After some thinking, and inspiration from you guys and girls, i found the answer to the Finale, as i also think it was meant to be: Season 6 (SLU) was kind of “Afterlife” where everyone (no matter when they died) comes together and finds peace, and so can enter heaven, or whatever you want to call it…
That’s a very nice idea, and clearly not a lot of people expected that kind of solution for the SLU.
The second thing we learned was, that still: everything that happened on the island was real. And they give not a single answer to all the mysteries of the island…
But why didn’t they? Why did they spend one whole season for the “Longest Happy Ending” in History since the Lord of the Rings? I’m sure they were thinking on how to End this whole thing, and that “giving answers the whole time, with a little side-story” was an option. But what would have happend then: eG There are literally 1000+ theories on Aaron, but if they would have answered one ore more questions about Aaron, 999 theories would have been wrong. That makes a very small percentage of satisfied watchers. And this scenario would apply to all unanswered questions. And that would have made every LOST Fan angry, maybe not only because of the answers, but also because of the loss of mystery the series built over the last years.
So they decided to give not a single answer and make the FINALE mainly about explaining SLU and about The End of the On-Island-Story, which for sure makes everyone a little angry, but in the long run everyone will be happier. People like us will still make theories in twenty years about pregnancy issues, Walt or the statue. Including us.
Please don’t be too harsh on me, because i’d like to hold on to this idea, and it will make me recommend the series to other people… with the remark: Don’t expect too many answers.
