So there’s just one more day until we FINALLY know what all this “Lost” insanity has been about. Six years of the show has led up to the 2 1/2-hour finale airing tomorrow night.
Anybody out there planning big finale parties? I was considering it until I realized that I like to watch the show in quiet, perhaps with one or two devoted fans who want to have intense discussions during commercial breaks. I’ve watched with larger groups before, and I just usually get annoyed with people talking. But this is definitely a good time to have a party, especially if you want to go all-out with Dharma gear and Lost snacks.
Does anybody have theories about how it will all end? (No spoilers, please, if you have, by some chance, gotten some information about the ending.)
I know that I have a list of questions that I HOPE the show will answer. But I’m not holding my breath on all of them.
Mostly, I just want something that’s satisfying. I have invested six years into this show, after all. I should get some satisfaction about spending that time.
Whatever happens, though, I’m excited and a bit sad about the ending. I’m pretty sure that whatever happens, it’ll be epic.
