Lost finale liveblogging

Ben gets another good line: "I'm going to talk them out of it."

And never leave a dentist to do a criminal's job -- why wasn't Kate doing the shooting?

Walt coming back? Totally badass. (The producers had said Michael and Walt would return in season 4 -- although I suppose this is technically more likely to be a manifestation of the smoke monster than a real Walt sighting. Still badass).

Hurley riding to the rescue in the Bus... not badass, but cool. Sayid going medieval on the other dude? Back to badass. And Sawyer doing unto Tom? Definitely badass.

There's 13 Others put Under so far, by my count. Jeez, how many are left?

The Charlie finale was stupid. He could have gotten on the other side of the door just as easily. "Heroes-esque" that. Plus, shouldn't he have at least tried to squeeze through the porthole?

I'm glad, though, given all the Others are dead now, that they're prepared to introduce a new set of bad guys.

How could they not see that radio tower from like the entire Island? And is that the most durable electronic equipment ever invented, or what?

And Locke shows up to save the day! Yippee. Or ruin the day, sorta hard to say at this point.

Hey-ho, it's a flash forward. Yippee. Jack's a whiny bastard in the future, too. (and you get a Golden Pass for being in a plane wreck? That's sort of twisted).

So who's in the coffin? Who's Kate have to get back to? Who's Naomi working for? What's Penny's deal? How much better will the show be with Charlie dead?

Not the greatest finale in the world, but the second half of this season was really, really strong. So, I don't think it was enough to grab the casual fan, but the real Losties should be chomping at the bit for next year. Just remember: Next year doesn't start until January, at the earliest.

Did not see that coming! Wow.

So, they get off the island and Jack ends up a suicidal alcoholic druggie, and Kate wears a lot of makeup.

Depressing, but at least you get the sense the writers have a real plan here.
