I really enjoyed Lost tonight, and I think they did something smart with it.
By focusing solely on the mythology of the two brothers this episode, they’ve sewn up a lot of the loose ends, making way for the ending. The smoke monster, what people want with the island, “Adam & Eve,” “who is Jacob?” This episode was kind of a reverse Highlander 2 for me. It improved the earlier episodes retroactively.
Now I hope they rid themselves of the temptation to undo everything they set up.
Note: I left this purposefully vague because I don’t want to argue the merits of the episode or spoil it for others. If you have questions about what I thought about a specific element or want to share thoughts/theories, feel free to comment.
If you just want to tell me I’m wrong for liking it, save us both some time and don’t worry about it. Life’s too short.
