since when do "good" shows/movies explain everything?

    I don't know--I wouldn't necessarily call the finale faith-based. Couldn't someone non-religious or non-spiritual believe in some form of afterlife? While it was certainly a lovey-dovey ending, I don't think there was too much religiousness to it (aside from the fact that it occurred in a church). Christian didn't say something like "God is waiting!" or anything.


    Don't get me wrong, I hated the finale, but I didn't hate it because of any religious overtone it may have had. Really, doesn't any story about good versus evil (something we sort of had here, I guess) bear some amount of spiritual/moral overtone?


    But these issues are a bit out of my area of expertise (if I can even claim to have one), so if I sound like a bumbling oaf, feel free to ignore me.

    Just wait for the Season 6 Blu-ray release, heard that they might answer the questions you morons want..personally I think the ending was brilliant and beautiful and that twist at the end was the biggest for me. I alos cried rivers lol and I never cry

    i think the good vs evil thing is more of a moral thing that the church used.in the first seasons of Lost i don't think it was about good vs evil,at least that wasn't what drove the characters.everybody had their own agenda based on their own needs not based on morality.non of them did anything without a motive just for the sake of being good.at least i don't remember...
