Finished watching the final season of Lost. Man, I'm an emotional wreck. See, this is why I avoid finishing stuff.
But I loved it. Loved it
. I thought season 6 was great and gave at least to me a good emotional payoff and also answers to the most important questions. It didn't answer everything, but I'm okay with that; I feel it's in the show's spirit that not every single detail is explained. I thought the smoke monster's story was great and I really liked the side flashes, even though they weren't really happening.
And goodness, Jack. I mean, I've often brushed him aside bc my OTP is Sawyer/Kate, but this season made me realize that he's just such a good guy. Flawed, yes, but such a decent, nice guy. I cried like a river in the last scene with him and Vincent in the jungle. Great idea to make it mirror the very first scene.
Before watching this, I was probably the most scared of Sayid's death bc he was my first love in Lost, but it was okay. I'm surprised that I cried more at Jack's death that his. I do feel Sayid's story was a little underrated in the last season - they should have developed his change to the dark side better imo.
The last scene in the church...I'm fine with it and it was beautiful, but the pairings were wrong, man. ;-) We know that some people lived long after the island, so for them to be in the "main" island ships was kind of odd, because surely they developed other strong relationships in their life. And Sayid and Shannon? Yes, they had a nice romance, but I always thought Nadia was his great love. <stubbornshippermodeon> Oh well, I'm choosing to think that the pairs in the church represent important relationships while they were on
the island, but for example for Sawyer and Kate who left together...not the final thing. <stubbornshippermodeoff>
Now I'm SO tempted to watch Lost from season 1 again. See you in another life, brotha.
