Trivia

Like the rest of season finales in Lost, this was a double episode set to run for 80 minutes, but Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse asked ABC to grant them more time to finish plots properly. See more »

Goofs

When Locke and Shepard are fighting on the cliff, Locke stabs Shepard a few inches below the armpit, but when the fight is over and Kate is helping Jack, he pulls up his shirt to show the wound just above his belt. See more »

Quotes

Jack Shephard: You're not John Locke. You disrespect his memory by wearing his face, but you're nothing like him. Turns out he was right about most everything. I just wish I could have told him that while he was still alive.

Lost focus + Lost opportunity = a series ruined by lazy writing
25 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

I'm already sick of the "romantic vs pragmatist" argument. I loved the earlier deaths of Jin and Sun and the refusal to be separated, the back and forth tug of war between Jack and Sawyer and their respective love interests, even the "sacrificial lamb" aspect of Jack's character. Kate's line "Christian Shepherd? Seriously?" will always remain high on my chart.

However, the writers failed as storytellers, serving up religious platitudes and schmaltzy reunions, all the while invalidating at least 60% of the series with self-conflicting ideas and plot holes that lead to the inexorable conclusion that they really had no idea where the story was going, and preferred to serve up "geek-chic" moments of coolness without any intention of tying things together in any way whatsoever. Just distraction after distraction until we're finally spoon-fed a useless "god loves you, and love conquers all" ending.

That kind of thing is fine after the events of a story have been sewn together. The failure of the writers is that they served up a dénouement without ever giving us any kind of ending, just random "cool" scenes. What a waste, destroying any interest I had in re-watching the series.

This really applies to the entire final season of Lost. Except for a 4 episodes, the rest of the season was filler.
