ben linus' final form is the cloverfield monster
Once you've invested 100 hours of your life over 7 years into a series, the end WILL disappoint. I am frequently disappointed by the ending of a book when the same sort of ending of a film might not disappoint me, because of the extra time spent with a novel.
Anyway, I've not seen the end of the Sopranos so what do I know? Maybe it's AMAZING. The Wire had a good ending but then the series didn't set itself up for anything to be resolved.
the only thing i can think of that comes close is B5, and i personally thought the end of that was great.
All through the series we're told that B5 will be destroyed and then OMG IT IS! But only after 20 years and in a controlled demolition after everyone has been evacuated. Riiiiight...
Dunno, my point is that that story told was more important than the ending.
The Twin Peaks ending was a disappointment when I first saw it. At the age of 16 I wasn't really ready for an ultimately dark, the good guys lose sort of ending in the first place but given how many stories were left unfinished it was odd.
It now seems quite brilliant but that's partly because it isn't what you expect on every level. I don't think anyone could fail to be disappointed in it if they watched the whole series with no idea about the ending and what happened to it.
i'm really glad it got cancelled, i think, cos it would've ruined it a bit.
fire walk with me should never have existed.
As I say, I like the ending now but I wouldn't describe it as perfect and given Lynch planned to make Fire Walk with Me finish it properly (well that's what I understood) maybe he didn't either.
At the time it was pretty mind blowing for a series to end that way and quite disappointing because of the lack of resolution to the characters' arcs.
and my mother is still full of resentment. Her mind has been so poisoned by the ending that she won't believe me when I tell her that we know who Laura Palmer's killer was - she seems to have blanked this from her memory.
and she still goes on about how disappointed she was in it if I bring it up.
I think like me she might re-evaluate if she had the time or inclination to watch it again but she didn't like the violence.
ideally, for LOST, i'd like it to have all of the major enigmas wrapped up before the last episode, but for the last episode to be really surreal and insane and mindfucky like twin peaks. Also, after everything's wrapped up, i'd like them to just gamechange and have the final scene make you question everything that's been on.
that's what i'd like.
When Sheridan's sitting next to her, and she turns around and he's not there :'(
leaving a legion of nerds to discuss it on forums forever!
see you there, ya?
I'll still be discussing the end of The Sopranos.
i hear its a pretty thorough explanation of it all.
I think there's a point where you can read too much into things. I think the ending is perfect and I have my own opinion about it. I've have had a few interesting discussions, but I'm happy to let it go now. My post above was tongue-in-cheek. :)
"Coooie, so what did I miss?"
or the end of crossroads or something.
it will require sawyer to remove his top
and bruce willis is really a ghost.
and dance routine
the skeletons. i'd bet on it.
little islands all in a little ball being bounced around by a big baby
it's a game show on tv
with a 10 year old boy waking up realising it was all just a dream
belong to. I'm guessing kate and jack. Sawyer will be the hero who dies to save them all thus completing his character transformation. Loche will die like gohlm from lord of the rings holding onto that crap looking wheel thing.
sun and jin in a raft free of the island kissing then they part and you see hugo wearing a life jacket 10 sizes too small smiling with his 'you da man jin' look then fade to black
and the Director will shout "CUT!" and it will all have actually just been a TV show, like that bit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit with the smoking baby
like in Wayne's World. I look forward to the scooby doo ending where they pull the big smoke creature suit off the old caretaker who cleans the island.
and then he walks around on smoke monster legs.
Sayid, Daniel, Jack fight Ben Linus. Sawyer who under Ben's control fights Jack. Alpert attacks Daniel, and Sayid fight Ben. Ben gets the best of Sayid and knocks him off a cliff. Daniel and Alpert go off the cliff as well. Jack is able to break Sawyer from Ben's control during their fight. Sawyer and Jack fight Ben and defeat him, along with destorying his smoke monster. The Dharma and US forces, attach the Others HQ. Sayid rushes to the hospital when Kate is, only to see her covered up. Sayid tells Kate that he avenged her, and then Kate comes out from under the covers alive, and shows a paper that says that the others were destroyed. Jack and Sawyer go their seperate ways saying that their fight will come.
Ben pleads with Jack to help him as Kate is dying and he can feel her pain, Jack tells him to stop but Ben says that his body isn't doing what he tells it to as Kate is horrifically crushed within Ben. Ben cries for Jack's help as outside we see lasers dart out off Ben's mutated body.This causes Ben's body to recoil in pain and transform further, whilst throwing Jack out duing the chaos. Ben moves towards Sayid who tells Sawyer, Jin and Hurley to escape, but they ignore him and continue to sit in front of the Dharma capsules in complete silence, un-moved by the events happening just behind them. Ben then consumes Sayid and begins to cover Sawyer, Jin and Hurley as the Dharma capsules shatter. Dharma's physical form begins to appear forcing Ben back, freeing Sayid in the process.
