I’ve kept my thoughts spoiler-free for those who haven’t had a chance to see it yet.
We have spent 6 years getting to know the various inhabitants of The Island. And we’ve spent 6 long years trying to find out The Island’s secrets. Last night was the 2 1/2 hour finale. With plenty of suspense, the focus seemed to be more on the tearful moments of the brief memories of happiness that happened on The Island. I believe that these are some of the best actors on tv. They have taken us on quite a ride. It’s show that wouldn’t have worked without it’s incredibly strong characters.
Granted, the story was great too. But among the innumerable questions that kept coming, the real thing that kept us all watching was what was happening to the characters.
As for the finale, I prepared myself for being disappointed. With this past season slowly unraveling, I could already tell that I wasn’t going to like the ultimate reason behind The Island. But I have to say, I really enjoyed watching every minute of the finale. Watching the alternate reality characters all find each other and remember made the past years seem worthwhile.
What did you think of the finale? Love it? Hate it?
Angry that more wasn’t answered?
