I recently had the opportunity to have an in depth chat with one of my longest and most trusted sources about the final few episodes of Lost.
It's been a wonderful opportunity to have a contact like this to chat and confirm a variety of spoilers over the years and to provide our readers with little snippets/games/teasers for upcoming episodes.
I've summarised the answers and questions below which obviously go behind the now infamous "Are You Sure" buttons.
I hope you enjoy it.
SOURCE: I don't think they should.
DARKUFO Did you enjoy the Season Finale?
SOURCE: Yes I did, very much.
DARKUFO What ranking would you give it for our episode table?
SOURCE 10 out of 10.
DARKUFO What have been your other top episodes of the series and which episode is the finale the most similar to in your opinion?
SOURCE My top five episodes of the series in no particular order are...
Man Of Science Man Of Faith
The Other 48 Days
Through The Looking Glass
And I think the finale feels the most like The Incident. And by that I mean on island events with a multi centric alt story in place of the multi centric Jacob visitation scenes in The Incident.
DARKUFO: I myself am really looking forward to how they are going to end the show myself.I'd like to see an ending that leave us not
questioning what we have just seen but more along the lines of looking back over the previous 6 seasons and re-evaluating it. For Reference my Favourite episodes are.
The Other 48 Days
The Man Behind the Curtain
Through The Looking Glass
DARKUFO Without spoiling the details, what parts of the Finale were most satisfying?
SOURCE Geez, I don't know how to answer that without being too spoilery. All the alt "realization" moments were very satisfying.
Since every finale has a Locke/Jack showdown of sorts this one culminating with a huge cliffside fight didn't disappoint. I was satisfied with Kate's romantic choice but I know a good group of people might not be.
DARKUFO Were there any parts that you found disappointing?
SOURCE Not really. I have disappointments with the series as a whole when I think about certain elements that I thought were important and ended up being pointless in retrospect. The story definitely ends, it feels very much complete, but like other fans I got sucked into the online discussion and theories and a lot of things people have read into the show weren't, or aren't, really there. Example: There isn't any Ji Yeon or grown up Aaron. Unless they show up in the last act that no one really knows about besides the actors involved.
DARKUFO How many scenes from your knowledge were missing? IE secret scenes? What makes you think you know what is in the last scene?
SOURCE I don't know for certain what the last scene is, or how many are in the last act. But my guess is Jacks "realization" moment in the alt. And when you look at how long the scenes are throughout The End when characters in the alt have their "Realization" moments I can safely predict the last act is going to just be that Jack moment.
Maybe there is one last scene that will surprise me. But after seeing the brilliant structure to the stories on this show it would be out of place to show too much of something else.
DARKUFO Which of the mysteries were explained well in the finale? Which ones have been left unanswered or at a loose end?
SOURCE Surprisingly there are more questions. People are still alive in the on island timeline who are also alive in the Alt world. I think they answered the mythology questions before The End starts. The End is character payoff.
DARKUFO Which character came out the best from the Finale?
SOURCE Kate probably just because they really redeemed her character.
DARKUFO Wow, really. Kate gets a pretty bad rep in the comments on our site so that's going to be interesting to see the reaction after the finale has aired.
DARKUFO Favourite scene of the finale?
SOURCE Locke's "realization" in the alt.
DARKUFO Saddest Scene of the Finale?
SOURCE Maybe the end just because its over? This episode was full of tear twinging moments but they are the happy variety.
DARKUFO Most shocking scene of the finale
SOURCE When Locke is killed on island. I guessed they would kill the smoke monster but its shocking because of who kills him.
