Also, did the show ever specifically state that Aaron was special? Other than the psychic telling Claire that he couldn't be raised by another, were there any indications that the kid was something special? Or did we all just assume that?


I can KINDA let the aaron thing slide in that while he himself might not be "special" he was special in that his birth was what kate and claire bonded over.

I thought Walt would come back too, but then I realized that once they "tested" him or whatever and determined he wasn't the "one" or whatever, they let him go..It doesn't explain what his powers are, or were, but I let it go once I figured out that they let him go first.

yeah, walt was the one mystery the internets were demanding that i couldn't have care less about. he had powers, but so did lots of people who weren't "the one" (like miles) and once he'd been tested and shown to not be "the one" he was alloed to leave. no mystery, no interest.

aaron's original "specialness" was that being born on the island, he might've been the new "the one" but it tunrs out he wasn't that brand of special. it also might have simply been that he was "special" simply as a tool to cross kate's name off the list? and again, either way, so not a mystery that i really needed answered by the end.

but i've read a LOT of comics and seen a LOT of anime, and this ending was no more or less obtuse/frustrating than a shitton of other pop media (like neon genesis evangelion or the sopranos)

yeah, far and away.

them and lapedis were the only ones who's personality NEVER worked my nerves . . .





and as far as aaron and walt:

sometimes you spend years believing/being told that someone is truly special, and in the end you find out they're not.

Yeah, that's how I feel about most of the issues. You're never going to get all the answers you want before you die.

Lapidus was my favorite of the 'new' cast members. I was screaming at the TV when Richard and Miles started rowing their boat and someone was alive in the water...

That would be cool too, but I meant later on since he wasn't in the church with everyone else.

Why do you think Ben Linus didn't go into the church?

I think that Walt was originally supposed to play a similar role to the role Desmond ended up playing, but the kid who plays him hit a growth spurt between seasons one and two and the writers had to make adjustments.

a more LOST-logical solution to the walt issue (at least to me) is that it was all part of smokey's long con. especially give what we know about how little the others were in touch with jacob and how little direction they got from jacob. so smokey convinces them to take walt, michael goes nutso kills libby and ana lucia, blows up the freighter, etc. etc. it was all part of the 1,000 year plan

i think i have to change my grade for the 2nd half of the series to a d+

i take that back, i've softened up a little bit, and while seasons 5 and 6 really didn't do it for me, i think that was mostly due to their rushed nature. at some point in there was a "let's get this over with" moment. i also felt like there was a lot of smoke and mirrors in the last two seasons and a lot of stuff that just doesn't make sense to me, but hey, i'm willing to let it go and move on because after all, i loved the shit out of this show. i'll put it up there with 6 feet under and twin peaks.

I thought they handled that problem with the 3-year flash-forward.

He was too "happy" with where he was. The contentment was, in itself, a sign that he wasn't ready to leave.

BastardSuperstar wrote:

That occurred to me as soon as Vincent started walking toward him. :oops:

re: Walt and Aaron, we don't know that they didn't end up being important eventually. They both could've grown up to be Hugo's successors. For all we know, Walt was still alive while the Losties were gathering in the church.
I'm still inclined to accept that the psychic was real and told Rose and Claire what they needed to hear to get them onto the island. Claire would eventually go on to raise Aaron (assuming the plane landed safely somewhere), and he may have been a force for good in some other way that had nothing to do with the island, which the psychic may have seen as a "convenient" tool to ensure the outcome.

Here's hoping they don't ruin it in 25 years by making a stupid remake.

I wouldn't mind seeing a spin off or two like what happened the years where MiB was living with the the well diggers or the story of who takes over after Hurly or early Dharma years when Ben Miles and Charlotte were kids.

Why was Sayid all like "I've found the love of my life again" when he met Shannon in purgatory? I thought Nadia was his girl. They spent 4 seasons using Nadia as his motivation for everything, including him getting all dark, but in the last 20 min of the series he sees Shannon and is, like, re-united with his lost love. The fuck was that?

I thought the plane was, like, 1,000 miles off course and headed back to Fiji or something when they crashed on the island. In sideways universe, they flew over the island then 5 min later landed at LAX. I get that the sideways universe was religious magic or whatever but why, then, show the island at the bottom of the ocean at all?

The big edge of the cliff battle between Jack and Evil John was hilarious, especially the jumping punch. It was almost meta. Like, "Here's a big fight scene"

That "heart of the island is the light in the heart of everyman" was an insane cop out. Geothermal electromagnets are the light in the heart of everyman? Is that what they were saying? From the Jacob backstory episode on, they pretty much gave up on explaining anything.

Anybody remember the last episodes of Star Trek TNG? I'm gonna go watch those again.

and i felt like everything that they did explain was all smoke and mirrors to distract you from the fact that the bigger "explanation" didn't make any sense at all.

Look! it's Rosseau and crew before she went crazy!

Look! that's what the statue looked like, and that's how it got effed up!

Look! we're in the 70's!

sorry, i'm probably being an asshole again.

because the losties WEREN'T the most important people in his life. he has to stay in sideways limbo until alex, danielle, and the people most important to him were ready to move on . . .
