Ok, I loved LOST through the first season and made it halfway through the 2nd before I found it not worth my time. I’ve always threatened to pick it up again if the ending didn’t completely disappoint. However, if the ending makes no sense and doesn’t solve any of the mysteries, I probably won’t waste my time.
So in a nutshell, how does LOST end?
A one-paragraph synopsis would be sufficient. I realize I probably won’t recognize half the names now, but if it sounds interesting, clever, and well-written I’ll take the time to watch all the episodes in order.
The answer won’t make a lot of sense if you haven’t been watching this season.
For someone approaching from a Season 1 or 2 perspective, I would summarize thusly:
Claire, Kate, Sawyer, and a bunch of people you don’t know get off the island. Hurley and Ben stay indefinitely. Everybody else dies. Eventually, everyone will meet up in heaven and laugh and comb each other’s hair and be best buds forever. The end.
Well, it does sort of resolve mysteries that were created in the last season in order to be resolved in the finale and … yeah, nevermind, not even gonna try to come up with something positive. Just give it up.
