Ok... so... WTF!?
I guess I liked that they left it open to interpretation... but WTF!?
Ok... so when did they all die? In the plane... or at various times during their experience?
The characters on Jimmy Kimmel kind of made it seem like the island and their experiences were real.
I guess they started the alternate (purgatory) reality as they died untill they could all come together to move on as a group.
I guess it is kind of like Watchmen where the blue dude is living two realities all at once but at different times.
They were waiting for Jack... though he hadn't died... the alternate life happened (which took a lifetime in his mind) in a quarter second. Kind of "your life passing before your eyes.
I guess that's what I got out of it.
But the island... what a wacky place!!
Will there be a "lost tour" on Hawaii. What a great idea! Come see the hatch... swim where Kate and Sawyer did... See the beach where the plane wreckage is!

I'm new to this thread, but this being an acting site, what, in your opinion, are the most memorable acting jobs in the series. Here are some of my candidates:
1) Ben pondering whether to kill Jacob
2) Sawyer after the death of Juliet, back in Dharmaville.
3) Yun-Jin in the helicopter while her husband presumably dies in the exploding ship.
4) Desmond on the satellite phone with Penny
Joe, they did not die on the plane. What happened on the island during the series was real. What was not real was this season's alternative, "sidewise" time line featuring the possible future had the plane not crashed. That was a created "limbo" or purgatory type place allowing the dead to gather once again. "But they weren't all dead" you say? Well, they all eventually died and as Jack's father said "now doesn't mean anything here" (or words to that effect).
The final episode resolved the fates of the characters but did not resolve many of the mysteries of the island.
