I can't just leave LOST without sitting down and having one more chat about it...
Since I am the only one in the house who watches it...I watched the last 45 minutes of it again...then I hashed it out with Miss Peach. She's really quite enlightened, and agreed with everything I said...smart girl, I wonder where she gets it;)I had it wrong this season. I thought that the island blew up when Juliet was banging on the bomb, at the exact moment everyone time traveled...splintering off another time line (the one where the plane never crashes)
That didn't happen. There is only one time line...the one where the plane crashes...and a bunch of stuff happens...and Juliet dies in the pit...and some folks go home then come back...and Locke is killed by Ben...and Sun and Jin die in the sub...blah, blah, blah...
I was kinda thinking that, when Locke said to Jack (in alternate reality that wasn't) "You don't have a son."
I was kinda thinking it more when Hurley came out of the church and said to Ben "You were a real good #2." To which Ben said: "You were a great #1 Hugo." Telling me that Hugo and Ben stayed on the island, got Desmond back to Penny...did other island stuff until they died...sometime...
Lastly...our guy Christian Shepard talking to Jack...
Jack: "Are you real?"
Christian: "...I'm real, you're real, everything that's ever happened to you is real...all those people in the church...they're real."
Jack: "They're all dead?"
Christian: "Everybody dies sometime kiddo. Some have been before you, some long after you."
Jack: "Why are they all here now?"
Christian: "There is no now, here."
Blah, blah, blah...basically, all the stuff on the island happened, it was the most important part of all their lives...and they all needed each other in this place they created (not really a purgatory, but just a way station to the next place) to "remember, and move on".
I'm pretty doggone sure on this...and Miss Peach agrees with me.
So if you agree and get it, you can sit down in the church with me, paste on your enlightened grin and we can all move on...if not...you can sit outside and discuss it with Benjamin Linus;)
