Lost Season 3 Finale

May 24, 2007

Okay, I retract my rip on Lost that was in my previous Heroes finale post…

Lost Season Three Finale – BEST LOST EPISODE EVER!!  Nothing to review… it encapsulated awesome.  What more can be said than “WTF?!  OMFG!!”  The good part is that our survivors finally have control over they’ve feared over the past two seasons – The Others.  The bad part is that in turn, our survivors have invited a brand new threat to the island… probably.

Now the fun part… theories, predictions, etc.

1) Ben’s warning about Naomi – about her not being who she said she was.  I say, he’s right.  Ben wiped out the entire original Dharma Initiative that was on that island.  I’m willing to bet that there’s other Dharma folk that are off the island and probably really kinda pissed.  Ben managed to hide the island from them via The Looking Glass and whatnot, but let’s face it – who else in the real world would actually even know where the hell to look for the island?  The Dharma Initiative – that’s who.  As for Penny, she’s still operating independantly and still has no clue.

2) Charlie.  Yes, the island does have the ability to heal people, but I believe Charlie will not be back.  If he were to live, it would completely defeat the purpose of his story arch this season.  It’s possible we could still see him steal a trick from Boone and appear in flashbacks, or flash-forwards, or other peoples’ visions… but Charlie’s death was heroic, poignant, and not in vein.  Not too bad for a former heroine addict.  Way to go, Charlie!  (Desmond… you douschebag… always check to make sure eye-patch man is DEAD!!!… seriously…)

3) Jacob.  Who is Jacob?  My theory is that Jacob is to the Others as Walt is to the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815.  They are the “Voices of the Island” for each of their proper groups of people.  Why they are chosen?  We don’t know yet… but I’m sure we’ll find out… some time… later… two seasons from now… maybe… ??

4) Jack’s Ultimate Demise.  Will he really end up a lost, near crazy, oxycodone-addicted, alcoholic frequent flyer?  Or should we expect more flash-forward episodes in the future that give Jack a happy ending?  I hope for the latter.  If that’s how Jack ultimately turns out – everything he does over the next two or three seasons will make me feel really, really, really sorry for him.  Here’s to Jack finding peace in a rehabilitation clinic!

5) Locke and the Island… *sigh*… I don’t even know where to begin.  The island definately has some sort of immense power that needs to be protected.  And Locke is not really acting for the Others or for the survivors at this point… as Walt said, he has work to do.  Which leads me to believe the Island itself could possibly have it’s own consciousness, voicing that conciousness through Walt and Jacob, and now also using Locke to act out it’s will.  Could the island’s conciousness be what the black smoke is?  Is that what Dharma is after?  Or what they created?  Far fetched?  Maybe… but as this show has proven time and time again – anything is possible.

With that, all I have to say is that despite all the criticisms and negative press the show has received over the past season – the writers know what they’re doing.  They have a plan,  and so far, their plan is working… because I’m definately going to be back for season four.  Go Hurley!!! 



  1. Sadly, I’m on the fence…

    I hope to everything holy that they do not do more off the Island. I’ll go as far to compare that to bringing the T-Rex into the US from Jurassic Park… stupid stupid stupid.

    Flash forwards I can handle… but I think Lost without the island will lose my interest. The island is very important to the story, or at least what I enjoy about the story… I hope that it is doesn’t go away for a whole season for us to watch the stories of the survivors unflod in the regular world.

    I’m on the fence about next season. I’ll see it when it happens.

  2. I have a semi-theory about Jacob, but I’m not sure I’ve quite thought it all through yet.
    I posted a pic of him on my blog if you’re iterested (from a screen cap).
