Lost For The Last Time



No, this ISN’T a post about me buying a new GPS…..

This post should serve as a friendly warning to all you fine people out there….

A warning to not call me tonight, or stop by my house, or write me an email, or even THINK about me too hard, or basically not to do ANYTHING that could in any way interfere with me watching tonight’s season premiere of the final season of Lost.

Since this show hit the air a few years ago, from the first episode really, I have been completely enamored with it. I desperately feed on each tiny 1-hour morsel of goodness they produce each week much like a junkie with a bad habit.

Quite simply, as the show has continued, and the characters have progressed, I have fallen in love with these guys. I will truly be bummed when this show ends its run.

And, as much as I’m looking forward to the new season that starts tonight, I’m also dreading it with feelings of trepidation. I just don’t see any way that they can resolve the story in a way that will amount to anything less than a letdown for me.

I guess I’ve just set the bar way too damn high, and I know it.

And even though I may ultimately be disappointed with the outcome, I still cannot WAIT to get there. All of these characters, each written so well, deserve a resolution.

So do we.

So, how did we leave off last year, and what questions should this season finally answer for us?

-When last we left the island, Jack, Kate, Hurley, and Sawyer were able to detonate the bomb, finally stopping the island from jumping through time in the past. Or did they?

-In a final act of selflessness, we lost one of the Island’s hotties, Juliette. Never again will I see that sexy, crooked smile of hers and think to myself how living on that island might not be so bad after all.



-The coffin was finally opened to reveal Locke’s body, seemingly proving that he has been dead for the past season, and NOT resurrected by the island as we were led to believe. If this is true, then WHO is the “Imposter Locke” that has been barking out orders lately?

-Imposter Locke ended the season by killing Jacob. Why did he need to take out the Island’s head honcho, and what does it mean for the rest of the island?

-Where has Claire been all this time?

-Where the hell have the other 30 or so losties been during all the time the main dudes have been jaunting through time all of last season? Did they all get killed by the flaming arrow attack at the start of last season, or have they too been hiding out in the jungle with Bernard and Rose?

-And of course, what the Hell is this island, really? The number one theory that has been bandied about from the first season is that everyone from Oceanic Flight 815 died in the original crash, and that the island is some form of Purgatory, but from the beginning, the producers have swore that this is not the case.

I could not be more excited about seeing how this all wraps up.

So, anyone out there have any theories? Speak up!

I KNEW you would put a Lost post up. I am so excited as well. Our house will be on lockdown as we watch. I got so hooked last year and we have been waiting for tonight. I watched all the seasons in three weeks just in time for last season's premier.

I don't think Julia is dead but that is just me.

Marie said...

Oh! You don't want to end with that picture as it is not very flattering. Her boobs look kinda funny.

Just sayin.

Slyde said...

her boobs could NEVER look funny.

As for Juliette, i think she's truly dead. Shes a main character on the new show "V", so i think we've seen the last of her and her sexy crooked smile.

badgerdaddy said...

Nah, you've lost me.

See what I did there?

Slyde said...

badger, you sly fox you!

meleah rebeccah said...

Oh man, I missed out on the whole LOST craze.

Sorry one of your favorite shows is coming to an end. Its weird, but its kind of like a LOSS when one of my favorite shows goes off the air.

Shania said...

I'm going to watch the last episode for a refresher, but I think dead Locke is Jacob's partner, who told Jacob that he'd find a loophole in the island rules and kill him. Right before dead Locke killed him, Jacob said 'well, I guess you found that loophole'. and yes, I am extremely pissed that they killed Locke.

2abes said...

All this excitement for what....ultimately you'll be at a loss for words with the big letdown when the show ends. I watched years ago, but it got a bit silly and I dropped out. Wait till you find out it was all just a dream or aliens or some stupid thing like that. Maybe Indiana Jones will show up looking for the crystal skull.

Meghan said...

So many questions!?! I feel the need to start at the beginning all over again...

GiGi said...

I stopped watching it last season, because I was so damn confused. Seriously, when a show needs footnotes at the bottom of the screen (like this one actually had at times)...you know its a little hard to follow...at least I think. I am going to give it another try tonight - mostly just to see that hottie who plays 'Sawyer'. He's not dead yet, right?

Slyde said...

nope, not dead yet!

B.E. Earl said...

We already know who fake Locke (with an "e") is. He's the man in black. The dude who was with Jacob on the island back in 1845 when the Black Rock first showed up. Jacob basically said that right before fake Locke killed him. We just don't know how he wound up with Locke's body (and memories) yet. Or why he and Jacob never got along.

CUZ said...

All I care about is SAWYER!!!

And I want to know that the hell the smoke monster is???

Slyde said...

earl: i know we know THAT, but who the hell is the guy, exactly? all we know is we saw him arguing with jacob 100 years ago.

Kristen said...

I have been watching from the beginning, however I am so lost that I have to watch the recap before getting into this season. I forgot Juliette died until I read this!

Lemur said...

I predict you'll learn how to spell "Locke."

Oh wait...maybe you won't - apparently, Earl recognized it too. What hope do we have?

vixen kitten said...

Juliette just doesn't do much for me. Now that hot little thang that they killed off in Season 2, Shannon I think. Oh. My.

She worked quite nicely, thankyouverymuch. :)

Even though I never watch television, usually waiting for the box set, I will be watching tonight.

I have no fucking clue what you're talking about. Never watched that show.
However, my guess is it'll be something like, "Planet of the Apes".
:)

Mrs. Holly Hall said...

DAMMIT SLYDE!! WHY DIDN'T YOU REMIND ME THIS WAS TONIGHT?!!

oh wait, i always watch it after the commercials can be fast fowarded through.

AND YES!!

I want to get off the island too ;)

Mrs. Holly Hall said...

SEE NOW. i went and watched it. commercials and all!

sorry about Juliette dude.

I miss having Kate hair. need to grow mine out again.

;)

Chris H said...

I hope you enjoy the final season. I for one have not watched the first one yet.. maybe never will!

Jacob is Jesus. The new Locke is the devil, which is also the black smoke that is used for evil. Locke got Ben to kill Jacob, which was the loophole to being the only way to kill Jacob. Locke couldn't do it because he was the devil. Now that Jacob is dead the healing powers at the temple doesn't work. The temple was forced to prepare it's self for the devil which is Locke from coming to distroy it. The island is like the middle ground. Everybody there has died and is being judge which side they will be on. The side with Jesus or with the devil. So far that's all I've came too and waiting for the new episode next Tuesday.

I gave up a couple of seasons back, just couldn't cope any more!

Tamara said...

If I had a clue what you were talking about, I'd take a stab at it. Enjoy it, Slyde. While it lasts. Mwahahahahaha <-- evil laugh.

Bruce said...

Speaking as someone that has never seen this show (and really has no desire to), your description of it in this post brought to mind something. This sounds just like the old computer game Myst, except with super sexy women and a lot more violence. I think the writers may have plagerized that game a bit in the creation of this show.

CUZ said...

pls someone tell me who the hell the man in black is/was? someone with Jacob? is locke now jacob?

Slyde said...

if you mean, the man sitting on the beach with jacob at on last seasons's finale, i think we are supposed to believe now that he is the smoke monster.

now the smoke monster has taken the form of locke.

Anonymous said...

Locke is the black smoke. Not Jacob. The man in black on the island with Jacob was the black smoke.

Slyde said...

thats pretty much what i meant..

Faiqa said...

Do. Not. Care. Anymore.

Sigh.

Kate said...

It was an awesome premier, wasn't it?

And commenter Bruce, you're right. The show has often reminded me of Myst over the years... (and that computer game drove me crazy!)

Nat said...

I lost the plot to "Lost" before the end of the very first episode...
