    Re: Lost last episode

    I have been a devoted fan of Lost for all six seasons and I thought the final was a complete disappointment. It was nothing but 2 hours and 55 minutes of filler that lead to an ending which answered none of the questions needing to be answered.

    What was the island? Still don't know.
    What was the black smoke monster (BSM)? Still don't know.
    Why was it so important to keep the BSM from leaving the island? Still don't know.
    What was the bright light? Still don't know.
    Why couldn't a woman get pregnant and give birth on the island? Still don't know.
    Why did the thought of Aaron freak out a psychic so bad? Still don't know.
    Why was it so important that Aaron stay with Claire or the world would be in grave danger, according to the psychic? Still don't know.
    What drove Rousseau and Claire insane? Still don't know.
    What was the healing power of the island? Still don't know.
    What were all the temples, tunnels, and statues for? Still don't know.

    These are only a few question left unanswered. The only thing we did find out (SPOILER ALERT) is that at some point, they all died (whether in the past or future) and went to purgatory where they waited for all the others to come before accepting their deaths. So for six seasons, I watched for that? I watched all those episodes to not get any real answers?

    What exactly did the final episode answer? Nothing. It was a six-season waste.

    I already knew that all of the questions weren't going to be answered, since the writers/producers specifically told us that. They said they were going to give us enough to satisfy some curiosity but to keep us talking and postulating. They succeeded.

    What was the island? Still don't know.
    Definitively? No, we don't know. But we do have an inkling.

    What was the black smoke monster (BSM)? Still don't know.
    The soul separated from the body, would be the best explanation I would have.

    Why was it so important to keep the BSM from leaving the island? Still don't know.
    Because a dark soul let loose in the world with the power that he had would be a pretty ****ing bad thing. Not to mention that he was tied to the island in some way.

    What was the bright light? Still don't know.
    Life, death, and everything in between.

    Why couldn't a woman get pregnant and give birth on the island? Still don't know.
    To keep people from becoming more populated on the island. To keep the population down. If the goal was to protect the island from people, then it would make sense to make sure that people couldn't breed. JMHO, though

    Why did the thought of Aaron freak out a psychic so bad? Still don't know.
    Why was it so important that Aaron stay with Claire or the world would be in grave danger, according to the psychic? Still don't know.
    Yeah, they kind of left that to the wayside, but that was the least of my concerns, personally

    What drove Rousseau and Claire insane? Still don't know.
    Solitude, would be my guess. That and all the whispering perhaps. LOL

    What was the healing power of the island? Still don't know.
    That would be tied to the light, I would think. Or the electromagnetism. Or maybe Jacob. After all, not *everyone* was healed. It seemed rather selective.

    What were all the temples, tunnels, and statues for? Still don't know.
    People that lived there before, protecting the island.

    These are only a few question left unanswered. The only thing we did find out (SPOILER ALERT) is that at some point, they all died (whether in the past or future) and went to purgatory where they waited for all the others to come before accepting their deaths.

    I'm sad to hear people say that, but to each their own obviously. That episode was the most emotionally riveting thing I've watched on TV that I can remember offhand.

    .
    Claire was driven insane, like Sahid, by the corrupting influence of the BSM/BadLocke.

    Rousseau went nuts because all of her friends were corrupted by the BSM and tried to kill her, then she was alone for 16 years living in constant terror of the BSM, the BSM's corruption-insanity, and the Others.

    The psychic probably hoped that Aaron's presence would keep Claire from being corrupted by the BSM and possibly becoming a danger to the preservation of the Candidates. Didn't work quite right, clearly.

    I took that the Light was the source of life, and somehow vital to life on earth as we know it. If it was destroyed then life on earth might also begin to wither... just speculation, but based on something the old woman who mothered Jacob and NoName Darkbrother said.

    The Island was the place where the spark of life began on Earth, and the source of that life's flourishing. That life-source is also the Island's healing power... the healing pool in the Temple was obviously connected to the underground spring around the Light-place. Jacob, Jack and Hurley, the guardians, all drank from the water near the Light-place... presumably why Jacob didn't age; and that other guy too. (reference to the Fountain of Youth myths perhaps).

    C'mon, you got to use your imagination a little.

    Certainly possible, for sure. I liked Doc Jensen's theory too, which is quoted below in his own words:

    We've been told for many episodes that if the Monster left The Island, the castaways and their loved ones would cease to exist. I took this to mean that if Fake Locke got away, reality would go POOF! Instead, this is how I add it up:

    1. In the Lost world, people are an inextricable blend of matter and spirit.

    2. Fake Locke was all spirit an unnatural state of being. But it made him invulnerable, because spirit is indestructible.

    3. To kill Fake Locke, you had to either restore him to his natural state of matter and spirit... or convert him from all spirit to all matter, which is to say, a completely mechanical animal, and thus killable.

    4. The rub is that to the procedure renders everyone into mechanical animals, which is to say, devoid of a soul.

    5.Without the soul, we cannot pass into the next life or into the afterlife without our community of redemption partners the people we love.

    6. Fake Locke wanted to leave The Island.

    7. Fake Locke was bonded to The Island by Island magic.

    8. The same procedure required to break that spell (i.e., destroying The Island) is the same procedure that would convert Fake Locke and everyone into soulless zombies incapable of having a happily ever after with our loved ones (i.e., your community of redemption partners) because we need our souls to move into the afterlife.

    9. Hence: Fake Locke leaving The Island = Annihilation (when you die) for you and everyone you love.
    Something else to consider is JJ Abrams own words regarding his "mystery box". How wondering what's inside was better than knowing.

    I agree about the a la carte cable. So the govt is the reason we can't do that?? I always wondered why the **** cable companies didn't let you do that. Because to get the channels I want, I have to get hundreds that I don't want.

    Scifi (or SyFy) is one of my fav channels.

    Do you watch Fringe too? I watch it, and I like it. But it just hasn't grabbed me and made me emotionally invested like some other shows. Not sure why

    Heroes? Somehow I lost track of that one along the way, not willingly though. I was moving around so much. But I aim to catch up on the seasons I missed. I think I started lapsing when they made Syler "good".

    I will tell you too that USA has some pretty kick ass shows now. Burn Notice, Leverage (or is that TNT?), Royal Pains, White Collar, In Plain Sight. Not scifi, but still good.

    And you know another show I loved that didn't make it? Eureka.

Which is one reason I think Congress should reverse its laws and allow consumers ala-cart purchasing of cable channels. Put real consumer pressure up, see what lives and what dies (though I could be horribly saddened by the results).

    What was I talking about again? Oh yeah. Firefly rocks hardcore ass. It was just about to break out and get unbelievable when Fox with it's head up its ass pulled the plug. Everyone associated with canceling that show should be lined up and kicked in the nuts by all Firefly fans.
