Lost: the end

For six seasons we’ve watched LOST. It’s been a slowing unraveling puzzle that stimulated our thinking, captured our conversations, and helped us make new friends. It was too difficult to just pick one place to watch the show’s finale, so we decided to split ourselves in half. Okay, well, not exactly. But, we did watch part of it with some of Brian’s Shorter College friends and some with our fabulous neighbors.

After spending an evening scheming up fun lost food ideas, we settled on something tropical tasting. @e brought some mango salsa and some coconut chicken with plum/pineapple dipping sauce. Delicious, if I do say so myself. 🙂 Everyone brought such creative food, that I had to take a few pictures of the spread…

Harper was selected as the new candidate

On the way to the party, Brian and I decided to grab some leis to greet the guests with a “Namaste” as the Darma Initiative did in the 70s. We also started a list to resemble Jacob’s with all the guest’s names. As they arrived, we solemnly crossed them off the list.

We watched the recaps and the beginning of the show here in an in-home theater. Watching it on the big screen seemed fitting.

Laura, Shimano, & Brandon

Next, we headed back to Brumby to have a final Lost night with Brandon and Laura (and Shimano). Since we don’t have a TV (or at least any channels on it), they were gracious enough to host us weekly for the show. Yep, they are pretty awesome neighbors (and we’d sad to see them move next week!).

As for the show’s ending… let’s just say the verdict is still out. We’re not exactly sure what to make of it. The last five minutes are certainly not what we expected. We want to like it, really, but just aren’t sure they actually tied together the two time lines adequately. Ask us in a week or so our thoughts on it…

Favorite moments of finale included Rose & Bernard showing up, Vincent, Sun & Jin’s moment of remembering, Locke (the real Locke, that is!) getting feeling in his feet, and Sayid and Shannon connecting in the sideways time line. Beautiful!
