Lost Recap: What They Died For

19 May
My Lost recap is now live over at Blissfully Domestic!
So what did you think of last night’s episode?
I’ve got to be honest.  A couple of weeks ago I thought there was NO WAY that the writers would be able to wrap all of this up in a way that would be remotely satisfying to viewers.  But after last night’s episode my faith has been restored.  Here’s why:
1) Jack IS the hero we’ve always known he could be.  He stepped up when no one else would to become the next protector of the island.  There’s some speculation out there that this may be a temporary thing (since Jacob gave Jack water to drink instead of wine).  Even if that’s true, and Desmond, Locke or some other equally deserving castaway picks up the torch, I am just glad to see that Jack has taken that step of faith.
2) Jacob FINALLY sat down with some of our favorite characters and answered one of their biggest questions: why are they on the island?  He revealed that he’s not all that different from our favorite characters.  He brought them there because they were flawed, and because they were all searching for something that they couldn’t find off the island.  They needed the island as much as it needs them.
3) Desmond is the ring-leader in the alternate universe.  He’s gathering up the passengers of Oceanic Flight 815.  To what end?  I have no idea, but I’m excited to see where these two crazy alternate universes finally collide!
Let’s hope that all of this build-up brings an action-packed, fulfilling ending. 
I’ll be out of town next week when Lost airs, but you can expect a late-night wrap-up of the final episode, as well as the series as a whole, on Monday night!
