What the Locke is going on . . . the season finale of 'Lost'
Okay still with me? Are you picturing me in a corner rocking back and forth? Because that's about right.
Remember earlier this season when they showed Sun at Jin's grave sight and I was so upset and you all wrote to me and said, "Don't worry Amy. Jin could still be alive. The date on the grave stone was the date of the plane crash."
The thing is I started to believe you and it took me out of my dark, dark TV place. So I'm going to need you to do that for me again.
Bring it on. Tell me that Jin was almost to the edge of the boat and could have jumped off. Tell me that, as the son of a fisherman, he's a strong swimmer and he could have made it back to the island. Tell me that he didn't get the big fitting final death scene that Charlie, Boone or Mr. Eko received. Tell me he's still alive. I want to believe you. I must believe you.
I haven't been this upset about a TV episode since Buffy dived to her death at the end of season five. I've got Lost under my skin. To me Jin running after the plane and Sun shrieking his name was the most heartwrenching scene the show has ever had. Yes Charlie was traumatizing last season. But Charlie had made some peace with the fact that he had to die. Jin wants to live.
Also I have to share this with you all because I know you'll understand. I actually had tickets to a play last night and TiVoed the finale. (Crazy right but I bought the tickets when the Lost finale was supposed to air May 22). Anyway I got home late, was exhausted and thought "well I'll just watched a little bit of the show and watch the rest in the morning."
What kind of black smoke was I smoking? The minute Kate backed up her car to yell at Jack, I knew I wasn't going to sleep any time soon. And I'm sorry if I woke you up with my screaming, "Run Jin. RUN!RUN! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"
My other thoughts:
1. I actually had to confirm that it was still the same actor playing Walt because that kid has really grown up.
3. Are you a little afraid of Sun and what she's up to?
4. I love that just as the show tells us who is in the coffin, we already have another mystery. What did Sawyer whisper to Kate? What was the promise she made him?
5. Do you think Charlotte is Penny's sister and Charles' daughter?
6. Locke being the one in the coffin was a fantastic reveal. Did the island turn on Locke? Clearly the Oceanic 6 did not keep those left behind safe by lying about what happened.
Okay, bring on your comforting words about Jin and talk about the season finale of Lost below.
