The season finale of Lost left me wondering what the hell was going to happen next season. I guess that is what a good finale should do. This will not be a recap, but instead just my observations, feelings, and predictions.
The “flashback” was awesome. I said to James and Karen while we were watching it that it must be a flashforward and then later thought maybe it was still set in the past because Jack said for them to get his father down there. Poor Jack, getting off the island does not do him any favors. He looks like hell and is now a pill popper. Although, Kate looks much hotter in the future, that is exciting.
Charlie dies. He was not the character I would have thought to die at the start of the season. Even after Desmond told him he was supposed to die, I still thought he would make it out. People probably will ask why he did not just get out of the room and shut the door, but I am pretty sure he bought into the fact that Desmond said he needed to drown for Claire to be saved.
Which now brings me to the rescue. I wonder if Naomi’s people are Dr. Mittlewerk’s group. If you did the Lost experience last season, Dr.M is the guy who was #2 in command behind Alvar Hanso and did something to Hanso and was using the company for his own evil ways. Maybe he never knew where the island was and this rescue party will actually be a new evil force which will force the Losties and the Others to join together against a new common enemy.
I wonder if when the helicopter comes, if it will take Claire and Aaron away, as a sign of good faith, and then later they will come back with their evil intentions. Will Aaron ever get Charlie’s ring?
For the few of you who read this, let me know what you thought. I cannot imagine how they are going to get 48 more episodes out of this show unless there is another group of hostiles on the island.
