Okay, here’s a theory for the ending. Jack facilitates ALT John’s return to face MiB by “fixing” him in the ALT. While John’s on the operating table, he “travels” to the island and confronts MiB. Gets MiB, with Jack’s and Sawyer’s help, to give up John’s demeanor and since he can’t assume another demeanor, he is bodiless and enters the realm of the Whisperers. The Whisperers have been waiting for this for a very long time and, lead by Richard (yeah, he dies and being hundreds of years old disintegrates into dust but is now with Isabelle), together they restrain MiB from making it back to the real world. Maybe they or Desmond throw him into a black hole or something along those lines. Hurley is there to narrate what the Whisperers are doing because only he can see them. And communicate between Jacob & the Losties. Desmond brings the timelines together for the Losties that are left, using electromagnetism or whatever.

Now choices need to be made. Here’s the kicker. After MiB is gone, Jack refuses to take Jacob’s place on the island because island Jack sees the ALT. And without a guardian the island sinks and what is now a single timeline continues that is more like the ALT where people are happy and alive but there is a sadness because they all have their memories of the island. Free will & destiny. Ms. Eloise is happy.

Last scene: Christian Shepard’s pine box washes up on a shore, not on the island because it’s sunk but somewhere else, not sure where.

Whatcha' think?

Pumped. Can't believe so few episodes until the series finale. I may cry when the last episode is over.

Tonight's episode ----> wtf?? I felt empty after watching it, disappointed. Maybe I was expecting too much. There were some answers but they just lead to more questions which I am afraid might not ever be answered. So MiB built the wheel but who installed it and had it working? Who/what was the lying mother and where did she come from? How was she assigned the island's protector? Who owns all the damn rules? etc The first sighting of the lighted cave couldn't have been more cheesy, grade B move-ish. Felt like I was watching a Disney movie.

Three points:

I think Jacob was her 2nd choice as protector. MiB had been her 1st choice but he turned against her. I also think Jacob knew that.

After dead-Claudia appeared only to MiB I thought back through all the episodes with Jacob and I don't remember Jacob ever talking to or seeing the dead. Maybe he just can't do it.

One woman, no matter how immortal, could not cause all that destruction and death at the camp and well. I'll bet that lying-Mother also had the ability to turn into a smoke monster. So that was probably the only true statement she said when she talked about the light being worse than death.

Because it is Lost, I'll take this episode and file it away and wait for them to tie it together in the final episodes. :(

I thought it was a great episode and brought a lot of depth to the plot, getting away from the old good vs evil struggle. Both Jacob and MIB have some good and bad in em.

Thought it was a great episode. Some things could have been better, or could have been answered, but all in all it was very good. I'm still interested to see who builds the wheel that can make you leave the island. I guess the MiB will still build it and realize he can't leave.

So I noticed that the series finale is scheduled to air May 23rd, and that is a Sunday. I wonder if they have something really cool planned for that day or something.

I enjoyed the episode as well. Is there a single character on LOST that the writers haven't made you sympathize with? Even those that at one time have seemed pure evil -- Linus, MIB, etc. -- are shown with depth and humanity. The LOST writers are masters of characterization.

I think the finale is 2.5 hours long (2:30) and it's on May 23 -- hey, wasn't Jack No. 23? ;)

With answers flowing now people are going to either hate it or love it. There's not much middle ground anymore. The major appeal of the show is trying to figure out answers to the questions - if you don't like the answers that were given then it is what it is.

At least we now know what was in Marcellus Wallace's briefcase.
