season finale of "Lost" (definite spoilers)  
Well, that was a hell of a season finale for Lost. I was daring to believe that the Jack flashbacks were actually flashforwards, but got tricked into thinking I was wrong by the Jack talking about his father like he was still alive (which was kind of a dirty trick by the writers). But once I saw all the maps in his home, I could see it actually was true. So where do they go from here? I think it would be great if it now dealt with crazy Jack trying to get back to the island, while flashing back to what happened after he made the distress call. I can't wait to see why getting off the island (assuming that really happened) was a bad thing.

Ben's ploy annoyed me a bit. If he had just told Jack the whole story (whatever it is!), he may have convinced him. And I didn't like they way they set up Charlie's death, but I mostly forgot about those problems when Hurley saved the day in the VW minibus.

And so, since they gave me two hours of decent entertainment, I will honor them with today's photo.

I was quite pleased with the episode myself. I actually like Charlier's death scene except, why in the Hell did "Cyclops" swim around to the outside of the station just to try and kill Charlie and Desmond with a grenade?

Good point.

I kind of wish the guard didn't realize the numbers played "Good Vibrations." I'd prefer Charlie trying to figure that out for himself out by typing in the few numbers he managed to get out of her before she died.

Yes, that probably would have been a bit better.

And like you, I thought maybe it was a flashforward until Jack mentyioned his father as though he were alive.

And then there's that Godawful fake beard. For one thing, if it's the future, his beard should not be pure brown. The stubble Jack has now is salt and pepper, so I doubt his beard would be a solid brown. Unless he decided to use Just For Men...

Yeah, I loved how his beard was all crazy and unkempt, but his sideburns were neatly shaved.

And as our close friend who also loves Lost texted me during the show:

"Wow that moustach keeps on changing"

Still doesn't explain much, but it provides plenty of food for speculation.

I'm trying my best not to read what you wrote, since I haven't seen that episode myself yet. The picture is fantastic though! :-D

Definitely avoid the spoilers! I had to skip like twenty posts in my Flist before I finally caught up on my season finales.

I imagine the hardest part is finding people who are willing to let you practice on them.
