My favorite quote comes from the movie Peaceful Warrior: “The journey is what brings us happiness, not the destination.”
That phrase applies very much to Lost, which will conclude tonight.
We won’t get answers for everything, you should know that by now. But that isn’t important. The greatness of Lost is that it always kept you guessing. For six years, you had to tune in next week to see what craziness they could come up with next.
Will what happens tonight be important? Sure, but to go for six years with such an entertaining plot is why Lost is great; not two hours that amounts to less than 2% of the overall show’s time span.
Would it be better if they could’ve explained everything nicely? Perhaps. But no matter what the finale brings, the journey that was Lost has already brought me plenty of happiness.
