The One with the Jears
I'm going to throw this behind a cut to avoid any spoilers... but, since you all so foolishly asked for it, here's my reaction to the finale of LOST. click on, brave ones
And then my mom tried to call me right as the episode started and I was too spastic to pause it on Tivo, so I did a pretty good rendition of this:
AND THEN I WAS LIKE, THIS IS THE BEST SHOW EVER I JUST WANT TO GIVE IT A FIELD OF SUNFLOWERS AND SHOWER IT WITH PRECIOUS HUGS AND RAINBOW-FLAVORED KISSES
AND THEN PEOPLE STARTED DOING SOME PRETTY EPIC SHIT
And I was all, GUYS!! We are finally going to get some answers! Dharma beer at my place!
... except there were only twenty minutes left, and they hadn't explained one damn thing...
So then after Jack got stabbed and got to talking with Kate in Bizarro LA and she starts talking about leaving and somesuch I was all, WAIT. THEY'RE NOT DEAD, RIGHT? FIGURE OF SPEECH, RIGHT? BECAUSE THE ONLY PLACE KATE SHOULD HAVE GONE WAS BACK TO WHORE ISLAND. And then I chuckled, because CLEARLY the LOST writers wouldn't end the series with them all being dead, right? RIGHT?
AND THEN THE LAST FIFTEEN MINUTES HAPPENED.
AND I WAS NOT. HAPPY.
BUT THEN I WAS NOT-NOT HAPPY, AND JUST CRYING LIKE SOMEONE SKINNED VINCENT AND FED HIM TO SMOKEY, BECAUSE OMG HOW BEAUTIFUL WAS THAT LAST SCENE WITH JACK AND VINCENT?? AND THE SYMMETRY!! THE SYMMETRY!!
AND THEN I WAS JUST TOSSED AROUND IN THE SEA OF DESPAIR, FRUSTRATION, SADNESS, ELATION, WITH ONLY LAPIDUS' MANLY, HAIRY CHEST FOR COMFORT AND BUOYANCY, ALONG WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT HE VERY WELL MAY BE THE HIGHLANDER:
GUYS. I JUST DON'T KNOW HOW I FEEL ANYMORE! AT LEAST VINCENT SURVIVED. AND JULIET AND SAWYER GOT TO HOOK UP. AND I LEARNED HOW TO GET STUCK FOOD OUT OF THE VENDING MACHINE. AND CLEARLY BEN AND HURLEY GOT TO HAVE SOME DUDE-RIFIC ADVENTURES--THOUGH WE WILL NEVER GET TO SEE THEM WHICH IS MEAN!!!!! AND ALL DAY LONG MY THOUGHTS HAVE BEEN STUCK IN CAPSLOCK, LIKE HARRY IN ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, ONLY WITH A LOT MORE PITIFUL CRYING AND STARING AT PICSPAMS ON TUMBLR.
Don't cry, Jack. ~They'll be no more Jears in Heaven~
This post has been brought to you by inside jokes with Roommate J and the LOST fandom, a lack of sleep, GIFs borrowed form the amazing ONTD LOST, and my inability to grasp the fact the show is over.
I might do a serious post on it later, but I'm not sure what else there is to say except that I loved this show so damn much, even in its worst moments. Thanks for six years of amazing characters, puzzles, and some of the highest quality TV around.
