Big episode tonight.

As the show concludes, what do you think is going on here? So many mysteries still remain.

Seeker got cancelled? I saw the first couple episodes, but I'd heard the writing went way downhill about halfway into the first season. I won't bother with the rest... thanks for the info!

The writing is cheesy, but that's the whole fun of the show...

I dont remember who they were, but there were a couple of posters here who were pretty insightful as to what was going on with LOST.

I've been knocking around a couple of ides, but ultimately I have no clue. These last couple of episodes will be intense, so much information to cram into them.


Here are a couple of potential things I have looked at:

Aaron, Claire's son, grows up to be the Man in Black
(some points I hadn't even thought of were brought up in this post from walterfootball: http://walterfootball.com/jerksoftheweek100510.php)

I also started debating a coworker a few months back that the Man in Black will somehow end up being the good guy with Jacob being the bad guy. I said it simply to be the devil's advocate, I had no reason to think it. I highly doubt it will spin that way, but it would be quite the twist and LOST is rarely ever predictable.

Another angle I could see happening is whoever ends up being "the candidate" stays on the island to replace Jacob, and the rest live their life as if they never came to the island, as is shown in the alternate universe. Only the candidate will be removed from that time line

I've actually stuck with this show and have been pretty pleased the last two years, though it still pisses me off after every episode. I like that there has been a lot more action though this season.

I'm assuming that this season's parallel universe is what is going to actually occur after the people on the Island either do what they're supposed to or fail at doing what they're supposed to.

I didn't like seeing jin and sun getting killed off, but I guess we're at a point where people have to live or die in this show.

Sayid dying, if in fact he is gone, was worse for me. He has been my favorite character

I dont think that the Man in Black is going to be the "good guy". He established himself pretty firmly as the antagonist over the past few episodes. He killed some of the main Lost characters. Jacob was trying to keep them alive.

Personally, I think that Jack will be Jacob's replacement. Jacob has given him special treatment, and Jack has taken a leadership role and seems convinced that he is to live is life out on the island.

Yeah, Sayid is pretty much toast. At least he got to end things by making a selfless choice.

I've kind of stopped guessing as to what will happen on LOST, but I'm enjoying every step of the way (though i think the show has gotten a bit too lazy at times this season.) Many mysteries remain, but many have been answered. The big questions for me are what the sideways world actually is (is it the life the Man In Black promised?) and what will happen with the whole candidate thing. Either way, the show has been a wild ride and if you honestly jumped ship, shame on you.

But then why would the Man In Black keep jack alive? There's something at play here that i think will be pretty unexpected.

That seems like the "obvious" ending, as Jack is basically the main character of the show. Its an ensemble, no doubt, but if there is a leading character it's him. I agree that all signs point to that being exactly how it ends, but I just expect some kind of big twist to occur in these last couple of episodes that changes a lot of things.

I still want to know who those kids are... the ones that keep reminding the man in black about the rules. There are a lot of things to be answered, but that has been bugging me every episode that it isn't revealed.

I'm also interested in what the rules are and why the game is being played...which I think is the answer to whats happening in Lost.

I think that everyone on the Island dies and Smookie gets let loose. In the alternate reality (the one we believe is fake, but is probably "real" reality given Juliet's statement that the bomb had "worked") the characters somehow choose to alter the time line, thus rendering Smookie back on the Island. It may not happen exactly this way, but somehow the never-crashed-on-the-island characters will save the island characters and stop Smookie.

This episode we probably figure out what Desmond suppose to do, and he does it, dying of course...

I like this.

Though i think the only way everyone will be satisfied with Lost's ending will be if money came flying from tv sets and into America's living rooms during the final moments.

I expect that they won't bother answering most of the questions they raised simply because they don't have the answers themselves. They were mostly just making stuff up as they went (now the voices in the jungle are just ghosts!!). Really, I've enjoyed it, but trying to derive meaning or answers to their own universe? I've given up on that.
