By 'The End' of Lost, Jacob's near two-thousand year tenure as the Protector of the Island came to an end, then Jack's near half-a-day tenure done the same, and then Hurley took over the role. In the final Flash-Sideways, Ben says to Hurley, "You were a great number one". Of course, we never really got to see what their protection of the Island actually entailed, until the epilogue 'The New Mand in Charge' leaked onto the web.
Jacob's protection of the Island was very much about keeping 'The Source' (EM Energy) from ever going out, keeping the Smoke Monster on the Island, and disproving his brother's theory on humankind. One of the essential plot devices in any narrative is conflict. Without a conflict between characters, ideas and/or theme…Read more >

What are your top five favourite scenes? The kind of scenes that you could just watch over and over again, for whatever reason.
1. Jack-Locke scene in Orientation: I just love the conflict between the two, their tempers flaring, and Locke's submission that he does not want to do this alone (in reference to the button) "Why do you find it so hard to believe!?"
2. Jacob-MiB scene in The Incident Part 1: This scene just widened the scope of the Island history, and showed us the central conflict of the show "One of these days, I'm going to find a loophole my friend..."
3. Flocke-Ben scene in LA X: (When Flocke tells Ben what Locke was thinking when he was murdered) Terry 'O' Quinn bordered on sinister in this scene, and I loved the way he ca…Read more >
The whole Flash-Sideways thing has given me a headache, and it was annoying me. But, for some reason, watching the final Missing Pieces episode has helped me make my peace with it. It's the one that's set just before the original crash, and Christian tells Vincent to wake Jack up: "He has work to do..." I think that this has - not changed my views on the FS etc - but it's allowed me to make peace with it. As if everything that they have done has been with the purpose of creating themselves a second life. This isn't a theory, but more so me sharing what has helped me deal with the annoyance of the FS revelation.Read more >
I think that they hit the nail on the head with everything that had actually 'happened'. The ending for that was great, with those still living able to leave, Hurley & Ben guarding the Island, and Jack sacrificing himself for the Island (and his eyes closing). However, the FS purgatory ruined the 'real' ending in my opinion, simply because it made everything else in the show FEEL unreal. Even though I knew everything that had happened, had indeed happened - the FS ending made it feel unreal and unimportant. It seems to me, that the writers were trying to satisfy both people of science, and people of faith - however ended up somewhat cheating the former, because it made what happened FEEL unreal and unimportant. Of course, for those of fait…Read more >
