Do you realize we waited a whole year just to find out who was in that dang casket? I loved how the scene played out though, with another character showing up just as you were starting to think maybe that very same character was the one in the casket. Well done.
Also...three years? THREE YEARS?
I so want to talk about that last scene on the boat where Michael gets an unexpected visitor, but I'm trying to keep the spoiler quotient low. Same with who visits Hurley in the institution. Both awesome, awesome scenes.
It seems as if Desmond's plotline may be at an end, which is both joyous and saddening, since he's one of my favorite characters. I hope he returns next season, but at the same time, I'm kind of happy to leave him where he is.
The giant frozen donkey wheel was...interesting. Suitably low tech for the island, but it gave me unfortunate flashbacks to Arnie's Conan.
Locke's new role on the island? Awesome. Now he and Richard need to make out like they so obviously want to.
And of course they managed to get Sawyer's shirt off again, and get Kate doused. Honestly, what's with these directors? It's like they keep trying to set up an impromptu romance novel cover.
A good finale to an excellent season. I think fewer episodes and the inclusion of Brian K. Vaughn as a writer have done wonders for the show. Can't wait for season 5.
Just please don't keep us waiting much longer to tell us about the giant foot statue!
Edited to add: Some spoilers in comments.
