OK then. Here we are. The last Lost show and my last Lost recap, the first of which was posted in September of 2005. I am a committed nerd.
I’ve had to sit and reflect on it for a few days to really get what was going on and understand what they were trying to say.
Was it maudlin? Of course it was. Was it manipulative? Of course it was. I loved it. This is the last episode we’ll ever see with these characters. They have become indelible and iconic characters for the true fans. If this is the last time we’re seeing them I want to make it as sentimental as possible. And it’s not a fake sentimentality. It’s well deserved. Like me eating a KFC double down.
