So I have a theory about Walt. The way I understood his power was that he had some sort of preconscious ability to will things into existence.
So when Ben and Hurley show up and tempt him with the possibility of redeeming Michael, who Hurley knows is stuck as a voice on the island, Walt obviously agrees. The question remains though how else could Walt save his father, other than to help the new owners of the island create their post-life waiting world.

I found this mini-sode watchable. But as a send off to the fans disappointed with really nagging, really large, important questions, it managed to talk down to us.
I understand why some people ADORE the end, but for me, it wasnt why i was watching the show. I don’t buy the argument that Darlton had prepared us, that they assured us it WASN’T a sci-fi show, a mystery show, it was a character study. Well, guess what.. at some point in season 3 you made the decision to embrace the parts of the show the fans were really into, only to pull out the rug at the last moment of the show. Not to stray from the fact that they didn’t redeem the characters that i felt got the short end of the stick in the last two seasons, being reduced to plot moving ro…Read more >
