Now that episode was AWESOME, EXCELLENT

What a cliffhanger! I think that cliffhanger is better than the "Riker: Fire" cliffhanger from TNG. Cause here, we are left hanging as to whether this resets the timeline or not.
With Star Trek though, you only had to wait about 4 months to find out the conclusion. With LOST, we're going to be waiting at least twice that.

And they aren't going to reset the timeline. Why, after setting up all that stuff with the Alana and the Ajira flight people and Jacob's mysterious frenemy and Ghost Locke and Jacob's death and the million other things, would they just reset everything and not follow through with that? Because all that would be "reset" as well. We got 100 new questions this episode and a reset would essentially deny us answers to many of those.
Which is why I'm done with this show. The writers have no idea what they're doing. They don't know how to tell a story. They set up these great mysteries for ratings purposes only with no idea what the mysteries mean, then they write bullshit and try to fill in the gaps and it just turns out to be anticlimactic. Then the bastards take the better part of a year off?? 2010?? WTF??!!!

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

I just thought of something Des didn't even appear in this episode! He really got short-shafted this entire season! He got one centric episode and a couple of cameos. Bring him back to the Island dammit! ... I was convinced the Ajira people had another nuke in the case, and that they would have to detonate it at the precise "moment" that Jack set his nuke off for balance. Or that they would use it to kill Jacob. I was blown away when it was Locke's dead body!!!

They announced two years ago the schedule for the rest of LOST. Three 17 episode seasons airing in Jan-May (cept S4 which was 14 due to the strike).

It's 16 episodes a season.

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

Someone suggested in the commentary thread that "they're coming" is a reference to the time displaced characters coming back to the present. That would be a more reasonable (but mundane!) explanation. Someone also suggested that the reason Jacob brought the O6 back to the Island was to have them cause a nuclear time reset which would bring him back to life, but I dunno about that one. Whatever happened, happened! Dead is dead, as we learned is doubly true with Mister Locke! I guess next season we won't be seeing Locke anymore but the actor will continue to portray the Adversary.

It's 17. Tonight's episode was episode 16 and 17. It was supposed to be 16 each but the strike made S4 only 14, which then added an extra episode to the count of S5 and S6.

Well, I glanced on another board and the translation to what Richard said to Illana was "He who will save us all." Locke's body was lying in the shadow of the statue...

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

I'd say "what lies in the shadow of the Statue" is clearly Jacob since he lives in the rooms between the toes or the legs or what have you. And they serve Jacob.

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

Oh I just remembered about Rose and Bernard. Interesting coincidence that Bernard built a rustic cabin in the middle of nowhere just like Horace did for Jacob's Cabin but they definitely looked different. I think this scene made it much more likely that they are Adam and Eve, living out in the jungle by themselves for three years. Not mention the Dog of Doom is with them, signaling their immanent deaths. The only question is where do they get the black and white stones?

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

black and white stones, Jacob and his Friend? good and evil?

I noticed how "good" Jacob seemed to be, and how "evil" his friend was

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

Wow. What an episode.

Definitely the best one in several seasons.

- Juliet better not be dead.
- Desmond, Penny, Jin and Sun need to serve a point next season
- Locke is really dead.....at least it sure appears that way
- My guess is Sayid is really dying/dead as well.
- Ben is THAT gullibile.....really?

Wow............what a great episode.
