I'm just thinking out loud here...I have a hard time remembering all the details of this show, so if there's an answer to one of my questions, let me know.
My biggest concern with Lost is that nothing that happened between seasons 1 and 6 really matters now that we've arrived at the end of the series. Right now, so many (but not all) of those details and stories and people just seem like non-essential vehicles for character development and moving the storyline.
Take Daniel Faraday (smooches!), for example. At this point, does he matter? Or, was he just a handy person to introduce in order to explain the time jumping a bit more? Oh yeah, and that parents are evil (does anyone on this show have a good set of parents?).
This showdown between the Flockster and Jacob (has anyone seen him lately?) -- I'm a little sad that everything seems to be boiling down to this cosmic duel they have going. I hope I'm wrong. I just think that things were much more interesting when the show was still in the sci-fi territory and hadn't jumped so far into fantasy. I have my fingers double-triple crossed that the de facto answer to the 'why' questions isn't a simple 'Well, it was just part of Jacob's strategy.'
And can I just say that Kate is my all-time least favorite person on the show, and Jack is pretty boring and unsympathetic (except that sometimes he looks real hot). I hope it doesn't come down to the two of them. Honestly. Go Hurley!
And Charles Widmore, ugh. Hate that guy. Holds zippo interest for me.
Who do you think Adam and Eve are? Someone attached to the show said that their identities speak to the heart of the island. Rose and Bernard seem obvious, but how would they fit into that idea?
Were you sad when Jin and Sun died? Not me. I cried for d-a-y-s when Ethan hung my little Hobbit from a tree, but at this point, I don't have any more tears left for character deaths. At least they're together. And, come on, would you still want to be alive on that island? Answer -- no. I loved them both dearly, but things need to move on and we all know that people are going to be weeded out. See you on the other side, Kwons.
Who are those young boys (or boy?) running through the jungle? It's one actor, but is he portraying twins?
Jacob -- Who the heck is this dude and why does he seem to be stuck in a permanent state of ennui?
Judeo-Christian, Greek, or Egyptian -- what mythology is playing the biggest role? None? All? I'm kind of hoping there's not a 'god' figure waiting at the end of the series in final judgment. I just think that would be too much of a pat answer to everything that's happened, like the 'Jacob's Plan' problem I mentioned earlier.
What's behind those stinking whispers?! I know someone gave an explanation at some point, but do we believe it?
Desmond -- I know I should care, but...I don't know. I really liked him at the beginning, but then I got bored with him. His quest for Penny seemed like a m-a-j-o-r distraction to me and I never really got into it. I guess I only care about my Oceanic 815 people. That scene with him and Sayid at the well was pre-tty awesome though. So maybe I do care, but just a little. Or a lot.
Do you think it will come down to Jack and Claire? Interesting...Why does she matter so much all of the sudden?
Dude, do you think Adam and Eve are Aaron and Ji Yeon?
But the only thing that I really care about is this -- a lot of people are supposing that the last scene of the show will be Jack and Flocke sitting on the beach and Flocke will say, 'Do you have any idea how much I want to kill you?' For the record, I think that would be capital 'l' Lame. L-A-M-E. Puh-lease.
And I hope that somehow, somewhere, Locke and Helen get to be together forever, cuz, man, dude deserves it.
And that Hurley rules the earth.
