What did you think of the season finale of Lost last night? Were you hanging on the edge of your seat in anticipation of what would happen next? I know I was.

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed. First of all, when Jack killed the man in black by simply having Desmond move a rock in a cave and then stab him, I wasn’t expecting it. I saw Locke’s body laying on the edge of the cliff and expected him to get up and keep on fighting. Killing him seemed like it was going to be such a big task and then wasn’t.

It was interesting that the creators of the show decided to turn the ‘alternate reality’ into a kind of meeting place, or purgatory, for all the characters of the show. One by one, we saw people unite and were ourselves reunited with characters we hadn’t seen in seasons, like Shannon and Boone. Once they all realized they were connected by the island and could remember their experiences together, they were good to go on towards their final end.

The final end is where I have a slight problemo. Okay, so if all the characters died, does that mean they all died within their own time and they are reuniting in heaven (the church)? That’s how I took it. Jack was the last one to die and the last one to reunite in heaven. At the very end, we see a flash of white light. Are they going onward in heaven or are they going back to the island together?

Some people have been arguing that the initial plane crash killed everyone and that they’ve all been dead throughout all six seasons of the show. I don’t see how that is possible. I see their lives on the island as real, the alternate reality as purgatory, and the final scene in the church as an end to a journey to heaven or an afterlife. But I’m sure everyone will have their own take on it. It certainly leaves room for much interpretation. I loved the way they ended Jack’s life, making him die where he initially landed on the island. And the peaceful closing of the eye…

And to follow up on my previous post, they didn’t completely tie up all the loose ends! Looks like we will have to wait for the DVD to come out to get some answers after all. That being said, it’s been a good run with Lost. It’s sad that it’s over, but hey, all good things must end.

For all of you Lost fans out there, I’m sure you’re pretty excited about the season finale happening tonight. It is a moment I have been waiting for for months now and my biggest hope is that they answer all of the questions I have.

But what if they don’t? According to CNN Entertainment, the final season’s DVD release will have tons of extras and will even extend an extra twenty minutes. The reason for this? The producers of the show say they couldn’t fit everything into the television finale to tie up all the loose ends.

So, with the help of CNN, here are some questions that I hope to get some answers to during tonight’s season finale:

  • Is the island really an island, or is it something else entirely?
  • What is the white light?
  • How come Jacob is talking to people when he is dead?
  • In the alternate realities of each character, some links to their roles on the island have been made. Will we see them follow through on these connections?
  • What’s up with the island’s medical capabilities? It can heal people of terminal illnesses, but women still can’t have babies there (except Claire for whatever reason).
  • Polar bears??

Whatever questions that are left unanswered will have to wait until the DVD of the show comes out. That won’t be until August!

Are there any burning questions you want them to address tonight?

I’m going to let you in a little secret — I love LOST. I absolutely love it. That’s why I’m going through withdrawals right now. The next season won’t even start until January of 2010. Bummer.

But what’s this I’m hearing about a Lost movie? Rumors have been circulating all over the internet. When the last season ended, I was sure there was to be a movie, but Lost creators unleashed another season instead.

J.J. Abrams, one of the head honchos of Lost, announced that the show will definitely end in May 2010. But he hasn’t completely dismissed the rumors of a movie.

In an interview with MTV (posted on the MTV Movies Blog), he said, “The one thing that makes you think maybe there could be [a movie] is that ABC agreed to end the series after six years. Which is a gift, because you know you won’t have years seven and eight where you’re thinking ‘they should’ve ended at year six,’ and you know how to pace yourself so that you know how to end the series.”

Of course, creators of these kinds of suck-you-in shows never tell their secrets.

Now’s your chance to speak out. What are the odds you think a movie will come out of the Lost series? How will it end?
