“The End” thoughts by Gatesy

You can let go now. For years I have imagined LOST’s future and its resolutions. I have greatly anticipated “The End”. Some of my ideas were good, some were not. Some of my hopes were justified, others were, frankly, pretty unreasonable. I can guarantee you that my version of the ending would not be as  … Read more

The Finale Preview by Gatesy

The finale begins this week and there seems little point posting a ‘recap’ style summary of what occurred in it and how it links in with other episodes etc… instead I am going to do two separate posts – this one, a preview of the finale and then a post-finale musing on the ending, the  … Read more

“Across the Sea” Recap by Gatesy

It thrilled me. It frustrated me. It thrilled me in frustrating me. I love this show – now as much as ever. I understand why some of my friends and fellow fans struggle, but I am a believer and I’ll try and convince anyone who’ll listen just how important and brilliant LOST is – ‘Across  … Read more

“The Candidate” Recap by Gatesy

None of us thought that all the characters would have happy endings. And we certainly didn’t think that they would all survive. But even with those expectations, watching it hurt nonetheless. Saying goodbye to Sayid, Jin & Sun and, in all probability Frank, was painful but essential. It was beautiful, moving and entirely appropriate to  … Read more

“The Last Recruit” Recap by Gatesy

All season there has been a theme of nostalgia as we’ve revisited people, places and scenarios we have seen before; drawing on previous seasons to evoke in us a fondness for the show’s history coupled with a sadness for it’s passing. This season has also been character driven; keeping the ‘centricity’ of individual characters for  … Read more

“Everybody Loves Hugo” Recap by Gatesy

During the long and tortuous 8 month hiatus I spent many hours envisioning what season 6 episodes may be like. ‘Everybody Loves Hugo’ was exactly what I had imagined. This episode matched the heights of this season’s previous installments in every area; plot development; character growth; mythological answers; emotional satisfaction. It was gripping stuff. And  … Read more

“Happily Ever After” recap by Gatesy

What would you have said if you were told that 80% of this episode would be set in the Sideways universe? Would you have got angry or sad or disappointed? Well if ‘Ab Aeterno’ was a big piece in the jigsaw for the whole series then ‘Happily Ever After’ is the missing piece of the  … Read more

“The Package” Recap by Gatesy

The temptation after such an incredible and unique episode like “Ab Aeterno” is to feel disappointed or let down by the slower pace of episodes like this. As with ‘What Kate Does’ and ‘Recon’ it is important to remember what makes LOST so special; this has been an incredible journey. This show is an epic  … Read more

“Ab Aeterno” Recap by Gatesy

6.09 “Ab Aeterno” The episode began with an extended version of a scene we have visited before. A scene that gave us an image  – the image that troubled me most from last season’s finale – Jacob dressed in black. And the fact that this particular episode began with this particular image –  the most overt  … Read more
