What an awesome final episode that had me in tears several times (esp. the Charlie/Claire and Sawyer/Juliet parts). All was beyond my expectations- that is, until the church part. What a punch to the gut that was. I did think that the final scene with Vincent lying down next to Jack and Jack's eye closed was poetically perfect but I'm still not crazy about the whole flash-sideways being some sort of purgatory-like place though. I'm still digesting the whole episode but will write more later. Must sleep.

Man, this series was hard to follow.
PS.... I personally thought Sawyer was gay, but denying even to himself the truth about his underlining sexual attraction to Jack....

Very odd, that of all people not to appear, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, would be those who no-showed on the Kimmel show.
The shows producers also were on the record stating that the characters weren't in Purgatory.... Cuse & Lindelof would be debating the meaning of term Purgatory if they were to continue to deny that the characters weren't in somekind of Purgatory.

Jack and Christian ending dialogue
No, according to what Christian told Jack, "some died before him and some died long after him" and that everything that happened "was real". They had all created the flash sideways/purgatory/house of mirrors/whatever to "find each other and remember" before moving on to the afterlife. So Hurley and Ben did take over for Jack on the island and died sometime later. Of course, this is supposed to be left to our imagination- as is HOW they created this "place" to find each other. And I'm assuming that for the same reason Jack's son wasn't real, the Aaron that Claire re-birthed so Charlie and Kate would remember also wasn't real. He was with them in the church but I'm assuming he disappears or something when they finally "move on". I dunno- I think I kinda liked the Jimmy Kimmel Bob Newhart ending better!
Jimmy Kimmel alt endings of LOST
Seriously though, despite the craptastic buddism/hinduism/taoism/judaism/dharmaism/christianity We are the World mushy ending (before Jack's eye closed-which was perfect), I loved every bit of the ride. The acting was superb and the remembering sequences were genuinally emotional. Yes, the show was about the characters but it was ALSO about the mythology and I am a bit disappointed that that part seemed to have gotten dumped. It is still my favorite show of all time and maybe that's why I'm still struggling with my thoughts about the ending.

Didn't Cuse and Lindelof promise to be on the Kimmel show after the final episode? Seems so odd to me that those two, the heart\soul, of the LOST story, would be missing.

I heard them say during the LOST LIVE Talks broadcast in NYC that they would not be at Jimmy Kimmel live but had taped something (which turned out to be the comedic alt endings only). They said that after the finale they would go "to black", meaning they wouldn't post anything online, perform any interviews or go on the radio. They said they wanted the finale to speak for "itself". Which definitely could be construed as they didn't want to have to explain anything more- aka a cop out. I do think that they wanted the viewers to read their own interpretations into it but I'm hopeful that they'll eventually say something.

They were on Kimmel on Thursday or Friday. They said they wouldn't talk about the finale until some time had passed. They wanted everyone to form their own opinion on the ending before they spoke out on it.

and those bloody screams would've been mine.

It would have been a better ending if Jack figured it out on his own, rather than have a god like figure (his father) meet him and explain things to him. It is like Jack never figured it out.
