Did You Know?

Trivia

In Lost: Live Together, Die Alone (2006), Sayid wondered why the remaining foot of the large statue only has four toes. Although the question is never explicitly answered in the series, this episode provides a good look of the full statue (we only saw the back of it in Lost: LaFleur (2009)), revealing that it has the body of a human, and the face of an animal (hippopotamus). The implied reason for the statue having four toes on its feet is because it does not depict a human, but a human-animal hybrid (later revealed to be the Egyptian goddess Taweret). See more »

Goofs

During James "Sawyer" Ford's parents' funeral scene, a 1977-model Cadillac hearse as well as a 1980-model Cadillac hearse are shown. (Since IMDb reports that James Ford was born in 1969, and the screen note reads that he is 8 years old, this funeral took place in 1977.) See more »

Quotes

Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: [to Sayid] Don't worry, dude. Everything will be fine when Jack changes the future. Or the past. One of those.

Lost Delivers a Fitting Finale
15 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Far too often do TV dramas hold answers back until the end of each episode. This, quite obviously, is employed to retain the viewers' attention; very much like a child eating through their vegetables in pursuit of that promised dessert! However Lost is a pioneer in the unpredictable answer-feeding, a method that has given the series that extra edge when it comes to invoking surprise to its max. The Incident does exactly that as it introduces a very unfamiliar yet rather familiar character right from the outset.

The rest of this 2-part episode is very Lost-like in its script; polished to perfection resulting in 90 minutes of captivating and pulsating drama. In keeping with tradition the episode follows the usual framework that has served every one since the Season 1 – flashbacks (or forwards) with characters giving us their reasons for what they are doing. Enlightening the viewer with a sense of purpose keeps you more involved than you would be but also, and more importantly, it stirs up emotion as well. I thought that giving each main character a share of the limelight was in tune with the 'purpose' of the episode – that everyone had a part to play, not just Jack and Locke.

Yet what is Lost without unanswered questions? In what I believed to be a fantastic ending, Lost has kept us talking, theorizing, speculating and ultimately wanting more. What more can you ask?
