LOST “The Incident” Review

JOSH HOLLOWAY as Sawyer on Lost

What did you think of tonight’s season finale of LOST, “The Incident”?

I thought it was a freaking amazing way to end the season. I also think it’s freaking lame that we have to wait almost a year to find out what happens! At least we finally got to meet Jacob, and I loved the twist about him having a nemesis (as all good stories have one). What was your take on Jacob? I think he’s bad. Sure he was nice to Kate, Jack, Sawyer and Hurley in the past, but I got a weird vibe from him when he stood there and watched Nadia get hit by a car. It seemed like he was doing everything in his power to get them to all come back to the island, which makes him no better than Ben in my opinion.

On the flip side, this nemesis of his doesn’t seem so classy either, parading around as John Locke and plotting murder. Also, here’s a question. Alpert says he’s the way he is because of Jacob. So if Jacob is dead, will Alpert start to age? The last thing we hear Jacob say is, “they’re coming.” Is he referring to the crew carrying around Locke in a container? For some reason the warning felt a bit more ominous to me than that. And what was all that about Lapidus being a “candidate:? Are these truly the good guys?

I thought the other story involving Jack and Sawyer was just as intense. Were they preventing future events from happening or laying the foundation for them? Let me just say though that there is no way Juliet could have survived that fall. She’s no Gandalf, although I wouldn’t be surprised if we find out she’s alive next season. That’s the only thing that makes me think that the whole bomb thing will work as Jack planned. I don’t think they would have killed off Faraday, Sayid, Locke, and Juliet if there wasn’t a way to undo it. As always, we’ll all have our theories (which I hope you will share with me here), but at the end of the day we’ll just have to wait and see what the final season reveals!
