I am also amazed at the reactions to the ending. Did I like it? Not particularly, I also wanted more explanations of the science of the island. I'm tired of finales with heaven & hell, religious themes. That's why I loved the Matrix
ending and not that of BSG
. But in a funny way this ending was satisfying. It closed the story well.
BTW I thought I heard Christian say that in order to be redeemed, a person had to remember their own death too. Remember Ana Lucia (sp) and Daniel weren't ready.
But for anyone to say that the previous years spent watching Lost
were wasted???????? That I will never understand, ever. You could not have had the ending we did without the story as it was presented, all
So, what was the "something" that Desmond was? Any guesses? I loved how he told Eloise Hawking that he chose to ignore her.
I'll be watching it again, maybe tonight.
