Wow. I guess dead is dead.
It was a great season finale. Things got pretty dicey last season, muddling further and further into an all-too-apparent morass. But this season brought everything back together. And everyone had a role, determined by Jacob.
I’m not sure if it’s considered too much pushing by the writers to have all the original Oceanic players come around to following Faraday’s plan. I mean, the plot has to go in a particular direction for things to finish up nicely, right? This is a great place to have that discussion about the difference between story and plot, but i’ll leave that for another day ( or someone else.)
So what happens next? I guess we wait until 2010.
