9:53PM: Yes Ben, why won’t you just let them leave? Is anyone else absolutely loving tonight’s finale? Is anyone else bitter that the opening credits ruined (one of) the surprises by revealing Walt’s return (Malcolm David Kelley)?
9:55PM: OMG WALT! You’ve grown five feet and look like you belong in the NBA… what’s the deal?
9:56PM: Quick flip over to AMERICAN IDOL…. Did Reuben win AMERICAN IDOL again? Lakisha, Melinda, Sanjaya, Chris…. the rest…Haley… that other girl… someone’s fifteen minutes of fame are so up…. the other guy…. funny how quickly we forget who the top 10 were.
10:00PM: The big question of the night: Jack’s beard… real or fake?
10:04PM: An hour until they reach the radio (cue 24 style clock)
10:05PM: Ben says, “Hello Jack, we need to talk” OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG !!!!!!!!!
10:07PM: Does IDOL ever end… it’s 10:07PM… Spoiler alert.. Jordin Won… big surprise.
10:11PM: Let’s see Mikhail survive that! Zing!
10:11PM: Okay… are Sayid, Bernard and Jin all dead? Really… WOW
10:24PM: Who else expected the code to be 4 8 15 16 23 42
10:29PM: Okay, that was awesome! Hurley finally did something worthwhile. And Sawyer… (to quote Joey from Blossom) WOAH!
10:32PM: How many lives does Mikhail have? What the FraK?
10:43PM: Talk About an ALIAS deja vu… poor Charlie, and just when I was beginning to like him again. Not Penny’s boat… oh oh.
10:52PM: Kate’s going to jump in front of the bullet… for sure.
10:57PM: I’m not going to say I told you so, because I didn’t. But the one thing I’ll say…. in the first hour, Jack was using a Motorola KAZR phone… signifying we were in the future… in LOST terms.
10:59PM: Who’s funeral was it? Locke’s? Ben’s? Holy Frak. We have to wait until February. This is nuts. What a finale. So many questions, but who cares. Lindeloff and Cuse have a plan and I’m just thrilled to be along for the ride.
See you all in February 2008!
