**spoilers begin immediately**
Losties. Oh, my losties. We have been apart for eight months! Eight long months! I’ve missed you! And I’ve missed the brain melt I get every week when watching Lost.
And now, just when I thought I understood time travel and resurrections and smoke monsters, I am confronted with a new LOST mystery: TWO REALITIES. Oh, when will it end? (I know, this season. Don’t remind me.)
Let’s get to it. We’ll begin *sob* with the last few seconds of Season 5’s finale where Juliet is smashing the bomb with a rock. Then the famed white screen o’lost appears and we are apparently in…
PRESENT DAY LOS ANGELES
JACK is staring out the window at a white cloud and is transfixed. He comes out of his daydreaming and looks around. He’s on a plane. A familiar looking stewardess walks down the aisle and offers him a drink on the house. Jack looks across the aisle to see ROSE. They feel a little turbulence and begin to talk about planes and how they like to stay in the air. The turbulence increases and then…nothing. The pilot corrects his course and they are fine.
And at this point my heart is sinking. It worked. They did it. The Island never happened. And now we get to see what WOULD have happened (what DID happen?) to our beloved Losties.
