^ On the island they weren't dead....(as we were told continuously - what happened, happened) in the alternate world (their collective waiting room) their souls came together to journey onwards well that was when they were all dead, but it exists out of time. Miles, Desmond, Kate, Hurley, Ben all lived their lives Hurley and Ben on the island (for who knows how long) and Miles, Kate, Desmond continued their existence off the island. And when they eventually died their consciousness, beings whatever met together in their construct (waiting room).

I can't see why people think they were dead on the island... living people came and visited the island, when they died on the island they went onto the waiting room, or in some cases were trapped like Michael as a whisper...

The mysteries on the island were the intrigue that kept you guessing - but the story was about the redemption of the 'lost' souls of the people stranded there... of them making choices and changing (or not) their ways. It was a story about people, not about the island


Exactly...  I loved the ending!

Yeah, that's exactly how I took it too. I found the finale really satisfying actually.

I really enjoyed the way they made it about closure and summary for the characters, and not so much about 'the mysterious electromagnetic properties of the island'. I think its cool that in the end, all any of the characters know about the island is what other people have told them. Even Jacob and his brother - they didn't know what it was or why it was there - they just knew what their surrogate mother had told them and we can only presume that it was the same for her.

Yeah, I was happy. I'd been kind of let down so far this season because it had been more about the action and the mythology and less about the characters. Seeing all those characters happy together in that final seen was really worth it for me.


I was pretty satisfied with the finale as well. I thought the reveal of the "sideways world as purgatory" was weak - almost like the producers saying to all the purgatory theorists, "No, THIS is what purgatory looks like". I liked them all together, certainly, I just wish it wasn't double doors opening into a bright white light. Too easy, I guess.


As for the storyline on the island, great wrap up, great choice of ultimate successor to Jacob. I really wish we could have seen some of Hurley-as-Jacob in action. You know, years later, another plane crashes to the island, how does he run the show? Would have been cool, but maybe too much to do in the closing minutes.

I did enjoy it. I enjoyed the ending the same way I enjoyed the series. I enjoyed the frustration caused by the challenge of the continuos questions. I really enjoyed the way they seemed to get the most from the actors. I truly gained an even better appreciation of that by watching those interviews and suggested explanations in the hour before the actual ending. [Those letters that they shared from fans were interesting also] I enjoyed the re-runs and the way they employed the "pop-up" hints in the re-runs. I rather expected that at the end...the very end... (when they do that "rim-shot" type staccato end to each episode and the word LOST comes on the screen) that instead of LOST it might say FOUND. Now that would be closure.  I enjoyed being lost.... It was what it was, entertainment.

Okay, I realize now that my relative satisfaction may have more to do with how much I've forgotten over the course of six years than anything else.

Yep, that is it.  It is just like they forgot about loads of things.


So they weren't dead on the island and was all just magical.  Well that is a lucky excuse for loosing the plot around the end of series 3. 


I disagree that the show was that character driven as well.  Sawyer and Jack were pretty interchangable, even Kate felt that way.  They would kill someone off and then use them as a plot driver. 


Oh well, I guess we can all see it differently.

I agree, I found it very satisfying. The ending made me not care about any unanswered questions or plot holes or anything. I loved how the final scene with Jack and Vincent bookended the whole series. I'm not spiritual at all, but I still loved the reveal that the sideways world was the limbo/waiting room type place. And no, the writers did not lie when they said the Island was not limbo. What a great series overall, I plan on rewatching the whole thing now
