What was Lost will never be found.
We’re left so many questions and ambiguities. Is everyone dead, or just Jack? If everyone, did they die in the original plane crash or later? And where’s Richard?
Like any finale of a program with rabid followers, the last episode of Lost drew impassioned criticism. The show, many said, was mawkish, overly religious, with too many loose ends.

Nevertheless, it reached the epic proportions demanded by fans. It was an emotional two and a half hours with montages of the characters’ years together and tear-jerking reunions - Jack and Kate, Sawyer and Juliet, Sun and Jin, Claire and Charlie.
Lost began with an eye opening and ended with an eye closing. (Time’s Tuned In blog: “Good advice to future producers trying to keep final scenes secret - make sure it contains only two actors, one of whom is a dog and cannot spill any secrets.”)
Jack and friends are supposed to move on, to follow the light. But for many of us, the light is a blank TV screen. Tuesday nights will never be the same.
