Lots of interesting questions and theories posed in this column about the “Lost” season finale*, such as:
Maybe it’s as simple as good versus evil. Or the bigger picture may involve the question of free will versus predestination. The question of whether humans can listen to the better angels of their nature or will always be brutes tussling in the muck.
I think I know the answer to that one: we will always be brutes tussling in the muck. Even if it’s just the 20%ers tussling, in the muck they will keep us all. Brutes.
On the issue of free will, I’d say that the show has it both ways. And maybe that’s entirely logical — I’ll leave that to you philosophy majors to sort that all out.
Sorry, I was a Philosophy minor, so I’ll have to hold off on that one. But as an English major I am wondering why Sawyer was not named Romeo instead–too obvious? Or will that be his future name? Probably not, but he seems to name change with the situation. Anyway, great finale, and now the long wait for the final season. I’m gonna forget everything that happened.
* As is to be expected, don’t read this if you don’t want to know stuff about “Lost”!
