6.11: "Happily Ever After"
For more theoretical riffing on "Happily Ever After," check out the follow-up post.
I LOVE tonight's episode! How dare they finish this up in 7(?) episodes?! All about Desmond. I've said it before and I say it again, it can be all about Desmond and I will be VERY happy! Just like I hoped, he's gonna do it—he's gonna round everyone up and show them and they will have to figure out what to do about it. How will the truth divide them? It's not necessarily a better world for everyone. Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley, Locke, and Ben have certain things better, and Eloise gets to keep her son, but Charlie, Daniel, Desmond... They've all survived electromagnetic events, some better than others, and love they didn't know they lost touches each of them from another reality. Even timesick-in-LOST1 George Minkowsky is kind of tuned in from LOST2.
How will Desmond get everyone together? Using his pull as Widmore's main man? Will Eloise fight him on it? When does LOST2 happen? Could it be in the instant of the Incident? A whole universe in an instant—why not? But that doesn't quite jive with Juliet's vision. Maybe I'm still good with LOST1 inside the snowglobe and LOST2 outside. And if everything goes well, the Losties on the Island who can leave the Island will return to the world they came from.
Desmond is Waverider! =)
Or... can they consciously fix things? Keep or bring back or protect those who died in the first iteration, like Charlotte and Daniel, like Anna Lucia and Libby, like Michael...? Maybe the endgame win for the good guys will result in a retroactive rescue from the Island before the freighter ever shows...?
I just watched the episode after the late shift at league volleyball, so I'm still a bit overtiredly high on it. Gotta settle and let it percolate.
It really is a classic Cosmic Cube-ical scenario and I LOVE seeing it happen with these characters! =)
Man, I'm gonna miss this show hard...
Keep on keepin on~
