ABC (ended 2006)
Kinda suspected Jack would die but it was a great way to end Sloane. I just love the irony that he finally unlocks the secret to Rimbaldi, gets eternal life and now has to pay for his sins by remaining alive trapped under tons of rock. O'Henry couldn't come up with poetic justice like that.
And sue me but I loved the ending. After all the crap she's been through in her life, Sydney damn well deserved a happy ending. And that she named her new son Jack was just wonderful.
I was very disappointed in the finale. I absolutely HATE that they killed Jack off and that Irina ended as evil. Also, they promised to answer all the questions and I have to say that they failed to keep that promise. The biggest unanswered question of all is: What the hell was Rambaldi up to and why did he set all that crap in motion in the first place?
Other thoughts I have about the finale:
I'm glad Sark survived in the end and that he showed some human feeling.
Sloane deserves his fate - but I would have preferred him dead.
I don't care about Tom committing suicide via bomb. He was a weak character from the start.
I never cared for Rachel until the finale, but she finally seemed likable to me. I laughed appreciatively at the under-wire bit. Ah, the joys of being a girl.
I loved Peyton's snake-induced confessions, which I feel is very poetic as she's such a snake herself. But what happened to her in the end?
I agree with those who have noted that the "drop ICBMs on D.C. and London to profit on the rebuilding" plot line was lame and unworthy of Alias.
All in all, it was a sorry ending to a sorry season. Alias deserved better. When it started it was so awesomely perfect! From the premiere episode, I was enthralled. But it lost steam toward the end. It slipped in my estimation in season 4 to the extent that a cartoon - on Nickelodeon, no less - replaced it as my number one favorite show. Well, I'll hang on to the memory of those early days which were the best the small screen has ever known.
R.I.P. Alias, I'll never forget you.
|My only thought would be that you KNOW Syd would have gone back for Jack, even just for his body, in which case they would have found Sloane. ???|
That is a bit odd. I thought about that too - she was so upset about leaving him, I shed a few tears watching that scene. Very touching.
I've only watched it once, plan to watch very end again. Did Isabel appear to have some kind of telekenetic powers? Or was I reading too much into that?
I was so sad and dissappointed that Jack died. At the end I really liked her father, I could really care less about her mother. I thoughlt the ending was really good.
|I thought it was one of the worst episodes of Alias ever!!! How dare they kill Jack & Irina!!! They should have just ended Alias last season when it was still a good show. I'm so mad they killed spy mommy and spy daddy!!!|
I have to say at the beginning of the series finale was kind of boring, they shouldn't have killed her dad off. It gjot better at the end. I loved when Sydney shot Slone, that was awesome.
Francine was there! I was so glad, even though it was a flashback episode.
Though that scene with Irina felt somewhat anti-climatic, I mean compared to that giant orb last season, this one wasn't all that threatening to me.
Alias was my post-Buffy show, and now that there's no more Alias, I don't know where I'll get my female-buttkicking fix And no, Veronica Mars doesn't count because she only investigates things.
I'll miss Sidney Bristow.
First I was Buffy, that was my favorite show, than I watch Alias and now that is over with, so I am watching Veronica Mars, that's my new show now.
The whole Rambaldi thing, I figured it'd be about eternal life, but I don't really get where the Chosen One completes the Prophecy? She didn't really bring forth his works and bind them with fury exactly? And what desolation is there in eternal life.
|one detail i did not like was Weiss's death but the rest was great|
Isabel and the puzzle I see coming a mile in advance. The question was just whether Sydney or Vaughn was going to see her standing there with the finished puzzle or if she'd take it down. However, it's still out. I'm sure her parents will ask whether she was able to solve it.
Actually Isabel knocked the puzzle down before anybody could see that she put it together.
