Lost S05E16 and S05E17

The Incident part 1 and 2.

Season 5 finale.

Woah. And oh. And ah. And ahhh. And erm. And NOOOO!

Now we have to wait until next year. That is torment.

A great couple of episodes. Forget Jacob’s interference I loved going back and revisiting each of the characters in true Lost flashback style (or flashforward depending on your frame of reference). Guns, action, metal stuff flying everywhere. Tears. And an atomic bomb. Why was Radzinsky so crazily intent on drilling into the EM pocket? He seemed a bit nuts. Who was he working for?  Poor Sawyer though, how come it always works out worse for him? I quite wanted him to escape and live happily ever after with Juliette.

And, Jacob. Jacob and the other guy who pretends to be Locke are in some eternal struggle over The Island, or how they use The Island. Or something. And in trying to outdo each other they’re playing some massive game of trans-time chess. Probably. So Ben and Whidmore were mere pawns?

And just when we thought it had all gone wrong. It goes right. Maybe? Is that a big red reset button they’ve pressed?  Not sure but I have faith.

What else can I say?

AWESOME.

Now I need a lie down.

The book he is reading jumped 51,700 places on amazon.com's sales rankings within 24 hours.

Incidentally, I plan on buying it. It is a collection of short stories.

As for the episode itself, I was blown away. But I seriously hope that a reset button wasn't pressed.

Besides, Richard told Sun that he watched them all die. He didn't watch them all die. So if a reset button was pressed, it didn't play into the future somehow?

We'll to wait and see. I don't take Richard for a liar. That means he saw, with his own eyes, Hurley, Jin, Sawyer, etc., all die.

Did anyone else get a strong Zoroastrian vibe from the show, or was that just me?

I had to look the term up. After reading about it. I can't think of a better way to describe the uber-plot that we're finally getting to see.
