The End - Series Finale

After six seasons, this is it. There is no description for tonight's finale, but I don't think there needs to be.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all of you. You are an amazing group of people. This blog started in other, perhaps more capable hands, but I have been honored to take you through the last couple of seasons.

Thank you to David and Steve for your phenomenal podcast, and thank you to the crew over at LostArgs, especially Zort/Ian, for being such an incredible sister site.

Tonight, Lost comes to an end. However, I know that this will not be the end of this community, or of the friendships hatched from it. We have been a part of each others lives - some for a few months, and some for years. As with the Losties, we have seen births and deaths, life changes and simple pleasures. We have shared more than a television show - we have shared our lives.

The Lost Community will live on. I know it. In the meantime, Peace and Namaste.

- Melissa

I can’t believe this is truly THE END.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I might stop breathing soon. lol

TheOtherLisa said...

David A Dein said...

It looked like Jack was taking a Whizz

TheOtherLisa said...

I knew it... it is going to be a WE have to protect... they all stay....

DeDJeZTeR said...

What happened to the talkshoe deal?

Twinkle said...

LoL! "Burning bush" and "worse than Yoda!"

Black Swan said...

oh, oh.. Hurley's got a bad feeling about this

LostIt said...

LOL worse than yoda! I love Hurley.

TheOtherLisa said...

Twinkle- yep, there's some great quips!

DeDJeZTeR said...

Hurleys bad feelings are usually a good sign of thngs going from worse to FUBAR

Sayid'sgirl said...

Not good that Hurley has a bad feeling.

memphish said...

Checking in. BBL.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Welcome home, everyone! Writing that post brought tears to MY eyes!

TheOtherLisa said...

Yeah... but which part does he have a bad feeling about... their mission or Sawyers?

LostIt said...

Hubby is cruel. He's laughing hysterically at the thought "Wouldn't it be funny if the power went out?" NOT FUNNY!

Black Swan said...

I'm worried about Sawyer!!

Mel, you do such a great job with the posts!

DeDJeZTeR said...

Not cool Lostits hubby ... noooot coooool!

Black Swan said...

LOL, Lostit .. funny hubby. (mine surprised me with a lost goodie bag.. with CHOCOLATE!)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Charlie!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh my gosh I love it.

Twinkle said...

Oooh! Chocolate! Anybody save an Apollo bar in the freezer for tonight? That'd be cool if you did. Bizarre but really cool.

DeDJeZTeR said...

Hurley needs an H1... that H3 is too small for him... lol

Melissa_Lossa said...

Oh! Hurley recognized Charlie - that was so sad/happy.

Capcom said...

Hey all! Group hug for our last episode together!

Somehow Charlie just doesn't seem like a bloody rock god with his FlashForward physicist haircut.

X-D

David A Dein said...

Ded we're still here!!!!

http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/24061

DeDJeZTeR said...

I have 7 Apollo Bars left and a dozen homemade Dharma chocolate bars.

DeDJeZTeR said...

David Brings me to an empty room with Guest 6 no one else

Melissa_Lossa said...

Rose and Bernard!

TheOtherLisa said...

Yah, yah, yah...whatever dude!
And what was written on Charlie's hand?

Seriously, that was a bad hiding job of Sawyer...but he called him Smokey...oh crud, if they aren't "candidates" anymore ... they're fair game! Oh no!

Vincent!!! Wow!!! And Rose and Bernard saved Des! How cool!!! No, no.. no...phew!!!

Black Swan said...

I'll make it hurt.... geeeez!

Capcom said...

Crikey!

Sayid'sgirl said...

So does Desmond sink the island and he's trying to fix it in the FS? IDK lol

Capcom said...

What I want to know is what's so bad about the island sinking and MIB being loose? The world doesn't seem that bad to me, just different.

Ginger said...

I was like "Oh no he better not!" and then Des was like "You better never!" and I was like "Phew!"

Melissa_Lossa said...

The Other Lisa - LOL Whew!

Sayid'sgirl said...

LIke HIC said in the clip show. They're all empty.

TheOtherLisa said...

uho....miles

Sayid'sgirl said...

Richard's Alive!

Ginger said...

Richard!!

DeDJeZTeR said...

oh ricky your so fine... but not in a gay way... lol

Kat said...

Oh man I had been wondering where Bernard and Rose were

TheOtherLisa said...

2c good call, there's alpert alive and well!

TheOtherLisa said...

here comes juliette!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Finally Juliet!

TheOtherLisa said...

Sun will remember now!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Juliet! And Sawyer's headed for the hospital!

Ginger said...

OMG, I'm crying alre!ady

Twinkle said...

The answer that I really want is why the pregnant women and babies have been dying since the Purge-ish. May not be the most important one, but it is to me!

Ginger said...

And I can't spell!

Sayid'sgirl said...

What!?

David A Dein said...

Had to restart the chat http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/24061
To sign in.

TheOtherLisa said...

wow.. that was cool

Sayid'sgirl said...

That was sooo cool!

Ginger said...

And they speak English!!

memphish said...

So their consciousnesses merge? They remembered their deaths?

Takes a Village said...

Sun/Jin mind meld moment.Wow.

Capcom said...

Wonder when Juliet will get her cross-memory?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Their flashes let them speak English? That's awesome.

I tear up at every turn.

TheOtherLisa said...

So, we'll at least maybe see Sawyer ask Juliette out... or, perhaps vice versa??? Maybe she'll ask him to the concert (perhaps she is david's mom and is already going?)

LostIt said...

Hubby's laughing at me now because I'm crying. "It's just a TV show." he says. He just doesn't get it.

Capcom said...

No but I meant about the island/MIB, the whole world is supposed to be messed up, and it doesn't look like it did.

Melissa_Lossa said...

capcom - it's got to be when her and Sawyer connect.

TheOtherLisa said...

So, they've both seen their baby and their deaths.... what a mixed bag... but did I see Jin see Ji-Yeon in that flash?

Melissa_Lossa said...

LostIt, go put your hubby in a closet! LOL

Twinkle said...

Maybe it's not a real world. If they are starting to remember the other life, maybe their whole existence sideways is like the matrix?

Capcom said...

Oh boy, island-walkin' music again. :-)

TheOtherLisa said...

oh boy that'll be a ride on anesthesia.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Jacob's dead he's aging.

LostIt said...

Richard's aging!

DeDJeZTeR said...

Frank????

Sayid'sgirl said...

Frank Yay!

LostIt said...

Frank!

TheOtherLisa said...

I'm holding out for Sayid...and Sun and Jin now...

Ginger said...

Frank!!

Capcom said...

Man, every time someone gets into an outrigger.......

DeDJeZTeR said...

Its a surprise.... classic lost

TheOtherLisa said...

oh wow, that was awesome....

Sayid'sgirl said...

It's a surpise. lol

LostIt said...

I was half expecting to the the outrigger shootout scene when Miles and Richard got into the outrigger. Finding Frank was better, though.

Ginger said...

Showdown at the OK Corral! I love surprises! Bring it on!

Black Swan said...

damn, i love this show.. I'm gonna kill you.. how're you gonna do that? It's a surprise..

Capcom said...

Me too Lostit, especially since RA wants to live now, I thought he'd get shot. :-o

memphish said...

Awesome segment! Frank's going to fly them off. I feel like Richard might pull a portrait of Dorian Grey though. And Jack's going to surprise kill MIB. I don't like to call him Locke.

Kat said...

This is really amazing guys.

TheOtherLisa said...

Lostit- I was expecting outrigger shooting scene too (and I went to go get chocolate as soon as you mentioned it! no one else mention food)

Amy Lynn said...

Checking in... this is super awesome so far, especially Sun/Jin/Juliet scene.

TheOtherLisa said...

Juliette is the mom.... wow....

Sayid'sgirl said...

hehe Juliet IS the ex

Ginger said...

Oh Yeah, Jack's baby mama!

TheOtherLisa said...

at least they're on friendly terms.

TheOtherLisa said...

That's a %^&& a long con doc!

May be the best line of all seasons ever...

Melissa_Lossa said...

Sawyer, go get her!

Capcom said...

Heheh, a weaponized Scottsman. :-D

DeDJeZTeR said...

lol capcom

Twinkle said...

OTL: I agree! Great line!

Amy Lynn said...

Plus one for the "sideways is epilogue" theory

Kat said...

HAHAHHAHA I love target right now. just saying.

memphish said...

And it was Juliet Carlson right?

LostIt said...

LOL Smoke Alert! ROTFL!

Ginger said...

Target RULES

Amy Lynn said...

Yep, Carlson.

Melissa_Lossa said...

memphish - I didn't catch it, but that would make sense. I seem to remember that Rachel's last name was Carlson.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Is that "Dharma Lady" playing at the end of the Target commercials?

TheOtherLisa said...

Ohhh awesome speech Hurley!

Sayid'sgirl said...

I love Hurley. Now I'm going to cry.

Ginger said...

Preach it Hurley!

TheOtherLisa said...

shannon an dboone!!!!

Melissa_Lossa said...

He saved Shannon!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Sayid's island love!

Capcom said...

Oh, Waaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!!!!!

TheOtherLisa said...

So Boone was in on it???? How!!!

Black Swan said...

Shannon! I thought this might be the love for Sayid and not Nadia

Melissa_Lossa said...

So Boone also remembers everything... interesting.

TheOtherLisa said...

Black Swan... you were right! And Claire is sooo converted!!! This is where Kate gets on the Walkie and spills her guts about mom!!! c'mon!!

Black Swan said...

Des is goin' down the hatch again

Capcom said...

Yeah, Kate get on that squawker!

I'm not sure that I'm going to like a tutti-frutti happy ending if that's where we're headed. :-0

TheOtherLisa said...

Oh, wow, it does remind us of going down the hatch... just like old times! Oh.. I like this version of Jack!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Same shot, looking down the hatch.

Amy Lynn said...

Beautiful re-creation of the Hatch scene.

Pardon the expression, this is a LOST-gasm so far.

TheOtherLisa said...

Melissa-- "everything else is progress"

Takes a Village said...

Shannon & Sayid awesome.

memphish said...

So despite that constant ache in the pit of my stomach, the episode has been much lighter than I ever would have thought. There's at least some hope that most of them will escape the Island in the original world and they're all exceedingly happy in the X world. I'm not sure if I should be happy or wary.

memphish said...

And yes that is Dharma Lady in the Target ads.

Amy Lynn said...

@memphish, with 90 minutes left... wary.

LostIt said...

"Oh sweet mystery of LOST at last I found you!"

Only an hour and a half left and I still don't know where it's headed.

Sayid'sgirl said...

memphish
Yeah it's been alot lighter than I expected. I wonder what's to come. It has to hit the fan sometime.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Sawyer moment coming up.

Black Swan said...

I'm not sure I like the sideways as epilogue

I'm waiting to hear Jack say, 'I was wrong' like Locke said before. Locke and Jack switch sides. Interesting what Terry O'Quinn said in the pre-show.. that Locke was not a man of faith, more a man desperately seeking faith

Kate is starting to remember? (with seeing Claire)

TheOtherLisa said...

Charlotte and Faraday!!

Claire and Kate! (I assumed Kate was there for Jack, but ok...this works too)

And now Charlie sees Claire!!! Oh Wow!!! And Kate is there to deliver Aaron!! WHH!!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Kate's going to deliver the baby again. I bet Charlie willl be there too.

Black Swan said...

got a bad feeling about Des here?

Twinkle said...

Kate's going to deliver Aaron again! Remember when Kate on the island said she'd always deliver Aaron or some such?

Capcom said...

Whoa, more Knotty Mommy Hair skeletons down there!

Sayid'sgirl said...

A plug?

Capcom said...

Yikes the cork!

Sayid'sgirl said...

volcanoe?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Oh, that's not good.

Twinkle said...

That was the stopper...

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hmmm Why's he bleeding?
And I hope Desmond is ok.

LostIt said...

He's not smoke anymore! He's flesh and blood! But I think that started happening while Desmond was being lowered. I thought they showed his hands bloody from the rope.

Amy Lynn said...

@SG, I think Des made Smokey mortal.

Melissa_Lossa said...

I'm betting Kate delivers Aaron, Charlie is there, and that will set off Kate and Claire's memories.

memphish said...

Yes Sayid's Girl! It's finally the volcano.

The literal cork? Sheesh. I guess we know why we needed a glowing cave now.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Charlie seeing Claire just about sent me over the edge.

Kat said...

Kate is totally going to deliver Claire at the concert and they are going to flash back!!

Capcom said...

LOL Memphish, my chest is really tight, I had to make a big crantini to relax.

I wonder why Jack and Juliet never island-flashed all the years that they were kissing?

memphish said...

The number of callbacks in the episode is out the wazoo. I love Jack smacking down Locke -- again. Too bad he didn't have a gun this time.

Amy Lynn said...

@Capcom, because their marriage didn't exist until it was already over. Right?

TheOtherLisa said...

Cap- maybe they stopped kissing before the flashing started in that timeline.

Capcom said...

Hmmmm, interesting Amy! I guess you're right!

memphish said...

Capcom - re Jack and Juilet -- because they weren't their true love, like Sayid and Nadia.

Sayid'sgirl said...

lostit
I thought I seen MIB's hands bleeding too. But didn't put it together then.

memphish said...

To clarify Sayid didn't flash with Nadia, but did with Shannon. Same with Jack not flashing with Juliet.

TheOtherLisa said...

I like memphish's idea better

Capcom said...

Yes, all of the above and J&J, I agree ladies, thanks!

Capcom said...

Ya know, if I had read that they were going this way I would have thought it was too cornball, but I think it's working so far.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ok now I'm crying for real.

DeDJeZTeR said...

Call him turnip head!

TheOtherLisa said...

Des is hilarious... just waiting!
Oh...once they know, then what? we're leaving! to where?

Oh wow, that flash was cool with Kate and Claire! and Charlie....now I'm tearing up! (And, I want a Kate true love...yes, I said it... haters out there... I want it...too bad!)

Capcom said...

Yes, the question of the evening.....so now what? :-o

Melissa_Lossa said...

Oh god, it's all over for me - I am BAWLING.

TheOtherLisa said...

There was a back door to the original hatch.. that's where Des went.

Ben sacrificed for Hurley.... wow...

Now tell Claire...COMMMMMEEEE ON! seriously.
(where did this blow torch come from... dharmaville?)

Oh crud....

memphish said...

I'm sorry but that leap was hilarious.

Capcom said...

Wow, Jack pulled a gladiator on MIB, awesome!!!!

TheOtherLisa said...

ok... first and only semi-bad moment, Matrix like leap into battle...

Kat said...

I could not even see i was crying so hard during the Claire Charlie flashbacks

Amy Lynn said...

Team Linus. That was awesome what Ben did for Hurley.

And yeah, wow, um, Matthew Fox. Nice jump :) It was obviously a cut after the stunt men, but looked okay

Capcom said...

I thought it was cool, cuz Jack is such a whussy to do something like that. X-D

Melissa_Lossa said...

Even Mr. Mel shed a tear for Claire and Charlie.

memphish said...

Claire, Charlie, Kate and Aaron made me tear up too. Now this is more what I expected, at least on Island. Now it looks like no one will escape.

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol DeD turnp head I was thinking the same thing.

Capcom said...

Yeah, I didn't think I'd cry at all, but since I started my huge crantini I'm huggin' my stuffed polarbear. :-(

BarbaraJay said...

Sawyer needs to meet Juliet for coffee.

LostIt said...

Wow! That scene with Kate, Claire and Charlie had me crying like a baby. And Eloise "Are you taking my son?" "No, not with me".

I guess now they go back and out the cork back in?

Amy Lynn said...

Loved the Kate/Claire/Charlie scene, with the same dialogue from the original scene. But loved even more Eloise afraid that Des was going to take away Daniel. THAT was awesome.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yeah!

Capcom said...

Heheh, I thought he was gonna say, "It's not personal, it's business."

Yayyyyyy!!!

LostIt said...

If Lockeis flesh and blood now, will it be harmful for him to leave the island?



There's the cut on Jack's neck!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ah so that's why he's bleeding.

LostIt said...

Is it John or MIB?

LostIt said...

It's John! And he's remembering! And so is Jack!

Capcom said...

Heheh, nurse, knock this dude out, he's freaking me out!

Twinkle said...

I had to go tuck my kid in. Would you believe the baby in my picture is now almost 8!

Anyway, what'd I miss? Wait, on second thought, don't tell me! ;-)

Amy Lynn said...

The "Walkabout" flash made me cry.

And now, the last hour of LOST.

memphish said...

So Jack didn't "remember" with Juliet because he never really had Juliet. He doesn't have a son. He's going to have to give up David to leave. Crap.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Is Jack just resisting? If not what would be his catalyst?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Nevermind it will be his father.

memphish said...

I had totally forgotten we get 2 1/2 hours.

TheOtherLisa said...

noooooooo-- now we know where the neck thing came from..... YES!!! Kate ROCKS!!! And so much for that appendix scar.... appendix schmendix..

IT WORKED!! And there's John's flash...

You don't have a son??? Woah... does he just kind of disappear now??

Capcom said...

Oh snap, Memphish. :-o

Sayid'sgirl said...

Nothing personal Amy but please quit counting down. Thanks ;)

Amy Lynn said...

I have a feeling all hell is about to break loose in both timelines. :)
