The Heart of Lost

Tomorrow after 6 years, Lost comes to an end. As excited as I am to see mysteries revealed, those mysteries take a back seat to character arcs and their stories. The elements that made it for me where these flawed, fucked up people, strangers ending on an island and learning to survive, to trust each other and ultimately hopefully become better people. Watching their struggle, heartbreak, growth, that's what in my opinion a rich story is about. All this compounded by deeply human themes of right vs. wrong, will vs. destiny, science vs. faith, second chances, redemption and love,makes me not care to have all the answers. Because in telling a powerful human story, Lost succeeded in all accounts.
