My first thought as the finale ended tonight was we have to wait until January 2009 for more Lost!!!!! Yikes that seems so far away. We’re going to get a new President here in the States before we see another episode of Lost. Crazy!!! Outside of Comic Con word is Damon and Carlton are heading into the dreaded radio silence with regards to talking Lost to the press. January 2009 can’t come soon enough for this Lost fan.
With two hours of Lost to digest tonight I’m going to jump right into some random thoughts.
What I LOVED -
What’s The Plan Sundance : Classic Sawyer line uttered to Jack as they approached the Orchid Station. Just love that Sawyer, but didn’t Butch and Sundance die?
WALT!!!!!! : Bout freaking time we got an actual Walt sighting and not just some vision or peek at him in a window. And of course Hurley offers up a great line with the “getting big dude” to Walt. Felt bad for Walt when Hurley had to lie about Michael being alive. Here’s hoping we get to see a lot more of Walt next year.
Aaron, Kate, Ben and Jack are in Los Angeles. ( a dead Locke is as well)
Sayid and Hurley are leaving Santa Rosa for a “safer place.”
Sun Is en-route back to Korea from London.
Last we saw of them Desmond and Frank are with Penny off the island.
Daniel is in limbo not on the island or back in the states.
Sawyer, Juliet, Charlotte, Miles, Locke ( for now on island time), Rose, Bernard, Alpert, The Others and Vincnt are still on the island.
Jin, Claire and Michael are TBD ( more below)
Claire : We probably won’t see her for awhile ( like not much if at all next season) but still think she is alive on the island.
They All Have To Go Back To The Island : I couldn’t help grin when Ben made a gesture that they all had to go back to the island and that included a dead Locke. The grin was me thinking of Weekend At Bernies with Jack and Ben carrying Locke around a la the movie. How will they all be drawn to go back to the island? Time for some guesswork. Jack is obvious. He is broken and needs to go back because he now believes Locke. Kate could be persuaded I think if she somehow heard Claire was still alive. This would put Aaron back on the island as well. That would just leave Hurley and Sayid and I’m sure they could be convinced to go back and help their friends. Sayid could be lying to Hurley and the safe place could be the island. Ben could have easily said “you go get Hurley and I’ll go get Jack and Kate.”
