Lost Season 1 Finale

Once again, don't read if you don't want any spoilers, 'kay!

Well, that was some journey. And no destination in sight either! I thought they were going to give us some answers, but now, in true JJ Abrams style, we are left with even more questions.
It was shocking and intense and managed to keep the tension taut right up to the end. Yes, we didn't get all the answers we were looking for, but at least we know that there will soon be another season.

Arzt explosive demise was as unexpected as it was called for. He was being so excruciatingly patronising to the others. My sister insists that I knew he was going to die, since I told her he was probably a red shirt during the previous episode, (and then had to explain to her in detail what that meant) but that still didn't mean my tea didn't nearly end up in my lap when it happened!

Hurley: "You got some... Arzt... on you."

The monster sounds distinctly mechanical. That really gives some credence to it's security system role. It also appears to move mainly underground, and it was really trying hard to take Locke down with it. This makes the fact that the hatch leads down into a long tunnel even more sinister. Locke has been desperately trying to open it for some time now. He believes that 'hope' is inside it. But just like Pandora's box, the opening of the hatch could also release a whole range of suffering on the survivors. The presence of Hurley's numbers can attest to that.

Hurley's numbers. They were everywhere, especially in his flashback. I still wonder how many people actually used them to play the lotto after they were revealed the first time.

The most touching scene was definitely when Sawyer told Jack about meeting his father and the way Jack struggled so hard to control his emotions because of it. And this said, Sawyer's death wish had better not come true! He is turning out to be one on the most interesting characters on the island.

I liked the way the last few flashbacks started converging. They brought everything full circle, just ready to start again. But I wonder why Claire didn't get her own flashback too?

  • It was a young blond girl that tossed the Molotov cocktail onto the raft. Could that be Alex?
  • Charlie did take a statue full of heroin. I just hope he doesn't start using it.
  • What exactly was Danielle's involvement in Claire's kidnapping? Was she trying to help or stop her?
  • Jack is not married anymore. What happened?
  • Hurley was reading the spanish comic with the polar bear in it on the plane.
  • The Black Rock is a slave ship. How on earth did it get there?
  • Who is the 'Others'? They have a boat, so they must be there voluntarily. And why would they want Walt?
I really don't want to wait so long to find out the answers!

This was only my third episode (or 3rd and 4th, to be corret), but I actually got into the story :-)

My question: Does the fact that the Black Rock is a slave ship have anything to do with the guys taking the kid (Walt, I presume)? Kid=slave...?

I hope not!

I think it might have more to do with Walt's special abilities. Most people believe that he is the one who made the polar bears appear after all.

But then why did they kidnap Claire if it was walt they were after all along?

Heheheheheheh. I know, because of course we are ahead by a season!

One thing I CAN tell you is that Claire definitely has flashbacks in the next season.

(Don't be too jealous, though. In the summer here all the shows go on hiatus, so we've been kept in suspense since May!)
