It's Never Really Over, Is it?

Just a normal Friday, right? Strolling through my blog roll, taking my time, reading some stories.

And then I saw this headline:
OMFG It's The Official LOST Epilogue

My heart stopped for a moment. I think my mouth went dry.

I had kind of forgotten about LOST, I'll admit. All that "what's going to happen?" and the Constants and the SIX YEARS of wanting answers had gotten to me. The end was too sentimental and emotional for a bunch of reasons that had nothing to do with a show. I think I needed the break. I'm not sure I'm ready to go back. But I really want to watch this clip. I haven't yet... I want to be comfortable.

I feel like it's bound to be disappointing now.

Choppin Wood

A Wee Bit More.

So, according to CNN, the finale will have an extra 14 minutes or so of footage on the DVD set. I've heard it will only be on the full series box set, but that may not be true. According to Michael Emerson (Ben), this extra scene will take place on island after Jack's death and focus on Hurley's time spent as Jacob. It's kind of lame that it will only be on the DVD, but that is kind of what I was most curious about after the finale was over. Besides, I was going to buy the full series set anyway.

Read about it here.

The End



So, what did you think?

Bon Voyage


It's kind of weird to think about it ending, right? As much as we've reached a point in the story where I'm feeling a little "Dear God, Please just wrap it up", I'm pretty bummed to see LOST go. Beyond the actual show, I'm going to miss watching with friends every week, talking theories and making friends because of LOST. Many a times I have talked LOST with a person I've just met to ease the awkwardness. Many nights, I've huddled around the TV with friends - even back in New York I can remember sitting in a friend's apartment with some girl I didn't really know, while she screamed "I WANT ANSWERS". That was only season 3. And let's not forget all of those Maxwell family dinners/lunches/brunches that were ONLY LOST focused.

So, goodbye LOST. It's been real. At least I can focus on BSG now.

Come say goodbye.
BBQ
Sunday, May 23rd.
1pm -- ??? (until LOST programming starts?? 6ish?)

My Backyard -- if you don't know where I live, let me know and I can give you the address. Please come through the alley.

Please bring something to share (or grill) and a chair (if you prefer sitting).

Also, there are some fabulous trophies: don't forget to wear a costume!!!

Lastly, an acoustic performance by the Constants. You may have heard of them.

Predictions

Alright everybody, the time is upon us. Let's hear your predictions for the finale. They can be totally obvious, or completely out of left field. Now's the time to throw in your lot so that on Monday morning you can say "Called it!" Post yours in the comments or just tell me why mine are wrong.

Here's mine:

1. Jack won't be the new Jacob (or not for long). It all seems to cut and dry for me. And he was too willing. Jacob didn't want to be the Island's protector, nor was he the Mother's first choice. My guess? Judging by Hurley's "I'm glad it's not me" comment, it will be him.

2. Sayid will be back, and in a big way. If he was a candidate, he probably couldn't die. Although it seems impossible for him to live through that, I'm convinced he's coming back. Perhaps with Lapidus on his coat tails.

3. Desmond will enter the Source, and come out in the flash-sideways. He must convince everyone to go back to the Island in order to insure the timeline where he reunites with Penny takes place. HE FAILS, and everyone lives happily ever after in the flash-sideways but him.

4. The series ends with the new Jacob and MIB sitting on the beach. A new group of survivors are washed ashore. Among them: Fox Mulder, Dana Scully, Special Agent Dale Cooper, and someone played by Lance Henriksen.

I'm probably wrong. I have a pretty good feeling about that last one though.

What They Died For

I didn't imagine that Smiths reference right? I'm sure it was on purpose, right? Man, it's nice to have good ol' weasley Ben back, right? And Man In Locke wants to destroy the Island? Awesome. And Jack is Jacob, right? Unless maybe something happens before that fire goes out. It just seems to cut and dry at this point. There has to be a twist, right? Maybe not. I liked Ana Lucia showing up as a crooked cop. Also, it was nice to see Rousseau lookin' fine.

Across the Sea



Well, we have SOME answers.

We know how the black smoke monster was created.

We know (as much as we're going to) where Jacob and the Man in Black's issues came from.

We know who Adam and Eve are.

What is in the wine? What does it do to Jacob?

Is the Man in Black we later see just a ghost inhabiting his body? Who is Fake Locke? Is he really just two dead people?

Is electromagnetism the fountain of youth? Is this the same well as in the temple? Has it been getting darker over time as more people go into it? What does this mean for Sayid (if he was alive) or Ben (assuming the Others put him in the fountain)?

It's interesting how Mother Dearest talks about how people are corrupt and fight and destroy, when essentially, that's what Jacob, her and the Man in Black do to each other.

This Is Amazing

Remember when I used to post the "When Were They Then" videos? This article is way better. Check out Terry O'Quinn up there! Follow the link for more. I think Lapidus is actually my favorite.
