Last night, after six seasons of torture fans of ABC’s “Lost” finally got some answers…sort of. The show went out with an emotional bang, tying up some loose ends, but still keeping an air of mystery. For some people that formula worked and for others it turned out to be a major disappointment. After letting the final events stir in your head overnight it’s time to decide whether or not the finale of “Lost” lived up to its hype. Vote in our poll and let us know what you think…
If you haven’t read our review of last night’s episode “The End,” now would be a good time to do so. While it did give us some closure by featuring several characters from the past, there were still moments that left us wanting more. Several of the island’s mysteries were never resolved and we’re pretty sure Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse had no intention on doing so when they planned the series’ conclusion. So did their approach help or hinder the final episode of the show?
The finale of “Lost” was well written and did come full circle in terms of Jack and his journey on and off the island. That character has been through the wringer and if anyone received some type of closure it was him. As for everyone else, it’s left open to interpretation as to when they died and what they did with the rest of their lives. Perhaps, the whole point of the series was to watch how the island changed Jack and in turn how he changed the others.
