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.
