I won't revist this thread, because I'm only halfway through season 3, but all this hype makes me sad I didn't start watching earlier! I wish I could be a part of it tonight! But I'll continue watching season 3 while you're all watching the finale. Just so I'm not tempted to sneak a peek during the episode (not like I'd have any idea what was going on anyway).

Enjoy the episode everyone!!

Just got in and am starting retrospective. So excited for tonight - I've barely been able to talk about anything else all weekend.
Hi, Shirley Temple Pudding.

The retrospective reminded me of the polar bear. Did they ever explain why there was a polar bear on the island?

Only to the point that it was part of the Dharma experiments -- at so far...

YES. I KNEW that Juliet was going to end up saying the line about getting coffee and going dutch to Sawyer. It was my one big prediction for the season. The LOST Series Finale thread (will include spoilers!)

They're really drawing this out. They could have aired this episode in the standard one-hour time slot if they didn't have 5 minute commercial breaks every 10 minutes.

They were all dead. Which I, and many others, guessed about three episodes into the first season.
Express Yourself!

They weren't all dead until this year.

That might have been one of the most profound episodes of television ever. There was a LOT there to think about. I'm still working out the chronology of the show, and I think I'm almost there.

No, it didn't answer everything, but it gave us enough that I think we can figure out most of what happened...most...

I might have been ok with that ending had they actually answered some major things that had been harped on so heavily earlier in the series.

My guess? They really didn't know where the hell they were going.

Well, I guess you could interpret that as saying she had to leave the island eventually?

Walt, I don't know. LOL. He had cool special powers The LOST Series Finale thread (will include spoilers!)

She was told that if she didn't raise Aaron, something very bad would happen--part of why she was crashed onto the island--to keep her with her baby. But then her baby was raised by Kate for 3 years--nothing bad happened because of this.

I knew we wouldn't get all the answers--and certainly that can be ok. But, I think they failed.

I knew they weren't going to answer any questions on the show tonight (it would have just been too ridiculous at this point if they had) so I just watched it for what it was, and what it was was a really beautiful send off to a television phenomenon that still leaves the door to interpretation wide open where it will stay for generations to come.
