It’s hard for me to even explain the emotions that I and many others experienced over the course of this final season of LOST. I did my very best to encapsulate these emotions and opinions into our discussion of the last episode ever, “The End,” but when the time came, I had no idea what to say, and have been literally thinking about it non-stop ever since that final image rolled across our eyes.
At that very moment — after those final, impactful story seeds were implanted into our fertile and eager brains — I have to admit: I wasn’t happy; I was confused and unsure of what I had witnessed. I refused to react with the vicious tenacity that most seemed to be doing (whether in praise or slander), and instead chose to wait; I chose to let those seeds rest and grow overnight and to see what things felt like today. Every second of the remainder of my evening up until my crossover into sleep was spent pondering, and when I awoke, confusion was still the dominant emotion.
But thanks to the endless web of networks that exists on Twitter, I was pointed in a few directions that promised perspective and perhaps even closure. I found myself reading a few different in-depth pieces, which took me in, sat me down with a nice cup of tea, and shared their thoughts. It is in these places where I’ve realized that I am happy with how Lost ended, and it feels really good.
