I live on the West coast so the Lost finale last night was on pretty late! We stayed up and watched the whole thing (recap show and finale) and didn’t get to bed until after 11:30! On a school night! I will be posting my thoughts on the finale at the end of this post, so if you wish to AVOID that, skip the bottom of the post!
Dinner last night was filling and delicious. Michael made up the rest of the flank steak from Friday night. What I love about flank steak is that we can use it for fajitas AND eat it like a normal steak.
I made a salad.
-Red leaf lettuce
-Green leaf lettuce
-Blue Cheese for Michael
Except I didn’t eat a sweet potato. Michael thinks I got a yam by mistake. I have no idea! I don’t know that I’ve ever eaten a yam! So what the heck did I buy??
Any thoughts? What did I buy??
And now for LOST….
*******LOST SPOILER ALERT*******
In the first season, I was convinced that the Island was the afterlife and they were trapped in it. As the series kind of evolved, I stopped thinking that because the story-lines were just so crazy…But after the finale last night I’m kind of going back to my original idea.
Michael had a good theory, too. He thought that the finale of last season — where the bomb went off and all of a sudden there was a third reality– was when everyone died. So that means that this final season was the only season where they were living in the “Afterlife.”
I liked that theory too. And it made me feel like the story-lines where they were in this alternate life meant that they were trying to find each other again so they could all rest in peace.
I was a big Lost fan from the beginning. I thought the show was exciting and well written. It had the feel of a big screen action movie, but also the feel of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks.” It felt very Lynchian to me. I loved the mystery of the island. The last season was kind of lame for me, so I was disappointed and not expecting a whole lot from the finale. But all in all, the ending was a good one.
I’m a bit sad that it’s over. 6 years is a long investment. I loved Friends, Seinfeld, the Sopranos and Six Feet Under…all canceled and I was left with a tiny hole. They were such great shows!
I’m a bit tired today. I have a coffee to get me through.
QUESTION: What are your LOST theories? What did you think of the finale?
