Life, Death, and Rebirth

The finale of Lost was done superbly. I cried. I can't wait to someday re-watch the whole series!

In the episode previous to the finale, Jacob, who had been resurrected temporarily by the act of burning his cremation ashes, explained to Kate, Hurley, Jack, and Sawyer about someone needing to take over the role of island protector. In doing so, he said that he had been appointed and chosen to take on this role but wished he had had a choice. Jacob asked if anyone would be willing to take over the role, and Jack volunteered. Jacob then went through the ritual of having Jack drink from a cup. It seemed Jacob might have turned some water into wine, but we're never sure. We go into the finale knowing that Jack is taking over the role of island protector.

The End

First beach camp on Lost

I was blown away by the season finale of Lost. I had a hard time not crying out loud. I'm not even sure I can put into words the beauty of this final episode. Don't read the rest if you haven't seen the finale. I might write more on this some day. I surely will rewatch the entire series some day, but not for a while. I want to give it time to sink in and formulate clear words. I want to watch the whole thing and have it be fresh again. What a wonderful story.
