Yep, was just going to say I think the flash sideways was purgatory until they met up to go into 'heaven' (for lack of a better word}

Yeah, that's what I was talking about.

Did everyone die in the original plane crash? And those left on the island stuck in some kind of purgatory? Was Jack the last one to finish his time? My brain hurts.

Do not try to make this timeline linear, that would be impossible. Instead only try to remember the truth - there is no timeline.

The sense I got is that the place they ended up, the purgatory/whatever it was, is not constrained by linear time as we know it, and as Christian told him, some died before him, some after. But when it was his time, they were all there to meet him.

Interesting that Ben stayed outside. I guess he had more time to serve.

I liked it better than I thought I would. It was about the characters, and that's what I wanted.

Yes, a little too convenient overall, but at least it had an ending versus becoming Gilligan's Island with the guest stars-of-the-week.


p.s. I WANT TO SEE INCEPTION!!!

time is relative

i absolutely loved it, but i also "got it" immediately, so there wasn't that whole -period where i had no idea what happened.

Oh, I got it, I was just meh. I'll probably need a day or two to digest it, though. I may change my mind.

Right, I kinda missed that. Ben didn't want to go in yet. Maybe a soul has to feel ready to move on. That it's not time you have to serve.

I never watch Kimmel, but this is pretty special. Matthex Fox coming out all teary-eyed made me tear up.

"Time is irrelevant, it's not linear"

In all honesty, this line pretty much sums up how you have to think about the two timelines, realities, or whatever you wanna call them.

Remembering this just made me smile: Juliet's "it worked" was referring to the sideways vending machine, and not the bomb. I liked that.

I think I'm warming to it already.
