If Locke wasn't Locke, Jack never would have been able to become the man he became. Locke wasn't special in that he had any kind of ability. He was special because he always kept his faith when life **** on him more than anyone else on the show.

LOL, even if that were true, he'd have to be the ONLY part of the story for 2 out of 6 seasons to be 33.33% of the show's story.

Fail at LOST and math.

Was trying to figure out why Jack had a kid but guess if it is purgatory in a sense and he needs to let go Jack def. had serious unresolved father issues, and by resolving the idea that he might end up like his father with his purgatory son, he let go of those issues.

Well he was one character out of like 14 in the first two seasons so if we break it down mathematically, Walt is actually only 4.714% of the story.

This was terrible, awful, a waste of time, and an insult. They ignored Walt in the finale, which was about 33% of the story. I could list the other 42% they skipped, but you're probably so blurry eyed from the emotional "finally" that you couldn't process it. Enjoy this link and then try to tell me how it got all wrapped up in a nice little bundle.

I processed the finale just fine. If you really thought Walt was 33% of the story then maybe you failed to process quite a bit yourself. I never said they wrapped everything up in a nice little bundle. Sure, I would've liked to see more of the Walt storyline, but it didn't hurt my enjoyment of the series or the finale.

lesson learned: don't follow drama series that are on prime time channels.

Ps: lol at you for still thinking this was a complex show.....only reason i followed it because i thought it was complex , intriguing.....but the end obv proved it to be the exact opposite. this show could have easily ended after 3 seasons.
fate/destiny/consciousness/time/redemption/free will/life after death

Yeah your right...you're probably better off sticking with Entourage or Californication if you want really complex ideas.

If it was Jack's purgatory they wouldn't have shown all of the characters doing stuff that had nothing to do with Jack imo.

I like this a lot.


I LOVED the finale. Are there a ton of questions that went unanswered? Yeah. I'm pissed that they built up Walt, Aaron, and a bunch of other dangling threads, but overall I'm happy with the series.

Someone in the thread said that they'd give up a month's salary to never watch the show. I would happily pay the same to watch the show from scratch with no prior knowledge. I was entertained for six years, and any nitty problems I have with the show cannot take away from that.

I will miss LOST a great deal.

before I start to read the 72 pages I want to say the season finale was a huge waste of my time. I did not have high hopes for the finale, and even then I was let down.

There never were any answers. All this show had going for it was the mystery. Nobody ever gave a **** about the characters. What generated interest were the numbers, the button, the Others, Walt, the Dharma Initiative, etc.

The writers, as is the case with any network show, were only interested in keeping their ratings up and getting paid in dump trucks full of cash. There was no good story here and the only concept they had was "magical island where crazy things happen to emotionally damaged people". It was mystery after mystery to keep you hooked and their ratings high.

They won. We watched until the very end. We were duped and bamboozled from the beginning with the "we have a plan" speech. I will list their plan below.

1. Make a mystery, get people to watch.
2. Make more mysteries, get people to talk about it.
3. Answer unimportant mystery, or answer important mystery by saying it's magic.
4. Make mysteries.
5. Make mysteries.
6. Make mysteries.
7. See step three.
8. Make mysteries.
9. ????????????? (This was literally written on the white board in the writer's room).
10. Get rich off of tricking people into watching our ****box of a show.
+ infinity

so sad that some ppl in this thread still think this was a complex show.

It's not like I had a lot of faith in shows on network television before this.... but after watching every episode of Lost and being a big fan..... I now have even less.

Not just story wise, but visually, I thought the final scene in the church was really weak. It was as if the reunion special had started early.

People who hated the finale are idiots. Not because they hated the finale, but because it was obvious for a pretty long time that this was the direction the show was heading. Lol at all you morans for wasting your time if you haven't liked the show for seasons 4-6.

Was Jack's kid in purgatory a zombie?

Walt had a very strong connection to the island much like Locke and Jack. He seemed to have some small and unrealized degree of intrinsic power (projecting to Locke and the birds flying into his windows in a flashback) which is probably why he was brought to the island. His father saved him from whatever destiny he may have had on the island by making the deal with Ben. Michael paid for what he had to do to make this happen. Walt was allowed to live a normal life as a result and his story was wrapped up when Locke visited him off island and found him to be a well adjusted kid.

If there was a planned or potential greater purpose for him it was complicated by the timeline of the story and the awkward aging of the actor. No biggie in the greater context of the show imo.

It's so telling that tons of ppl who didn't happen to like the way LOST ended feel the need to assert that nothing about the show was complex or intriguing as a character study or on a thematic level.

Just because you didn't like it doesn't mean it didn't have something to offer on a number of levels as an overall story.

Or maybe people are just upset that they don't get the show. Can't really figure out the hostility otherwise.

That storyline didn't even start until Season Six.

Meh, I didn't completely hate it from 4-6 but it was very average. This is about as good as I expected it to end after the Jacob/MiB story took over the series. It was still watchable but not worthy of praise. I think most of the bigger fans just liked this finale because of the nostalgia.

Also don't know how you can say we should have known it would drop all the Dharma, sci-fi type tract all the way back to s4.

how was them going back a good thing? If they stayed on the mainland, MiB doesn't kill Jacob, the Kwon's are alive, Jack's alive.
