It was a lazy ending..lazy writers.
Any azz can lead you down a garden path. It takes a genuine WRITER to pull it all together in a closer, validating kind of way.
WHO was the smoke monster? WHO was Jacob????
How about the Australian gilrls..oh so important baby??
So many storylines over years left..dangling
Color me as dissapointed as I first predicted I would be.
Yet..somehow they kept me watching over the years.
Yeah, the problem is that the questions that needed to be answered were answered. The baby was important because none had survived on the island since the incident. Jacob and his Brother were not ancient gods, they were a split between the woman who raised them...the brother taking on the smoke monster form, Jacob taking on the protector form.
I don't see how the ending was not validating? It was a perfect representation of the power of our Constant. Each of these people were brought to that place to find their Constant, they were together because the the time they spent on the Island was the most critical parts of their lives, and when they touched their Constants, they remembered their lives, allowing them to "move on." (and no, it's not a Christian theory.)
The series was about the characters, and the plot and the questions that surrounded them were only there to explain the character's journeys. I can see why some were more interested in those questions than the characters, but in a show that spent so much time explaining character back story, how can it be anything other than a character driven show?
I respectfully disagree with the lazy writing argument. It just wasn't what you wanted it to be, which is a story about the island and a tale about what it all really meant. It was about the characters.
