The Lost-Northlanders connection revealed! (In my mind, at least)

I concede that, like so many people, I’ve had Lost on my mind for the past couple of days. However, am I the only one who, upon seeing this lovely preview for Northlanders #28 by Brian Wood and Leandro Fernandez, instantly thought of the closing moments to Sunday’s series finale?

To prove I’m not totally crazy, I’ve included a couple of screencaps after the break. Isn’t it a little eerie? (The similarity, I mean, not my craziness.)

Eh, not really. The closing moments of the finale were almost an exact reversal of the show’s opening.

Spoilers, man.


I see what you’re saying, but hopefully this book doesn’t have any BS cop-outs about all the main characters hanging out in purgatory before they all realize they’re dead and go off to Heaven.

It seems like a lot of folks liked the Lost finale, and that’s fine, but after seeing all the episodes at least four times each (well, not the finale, nor the equally hideous “Across the Sea” from two weeks ago — once was enough for both) and owning all the DVD sets, the series is now pretty much ruined for me. It was a great run for the first 5 seasons, and even parts of season 6, but I don’t see myself ever watching the show again.

Actually, if still anyone out there who hasn’t seen the finale, and still wants to, I’d tell them not to waste their time.

I tried to put in a SPOILER ALERT after saying “Alright…” but for some reason this blog didn’t like the arrow symbols I tried to put around those words, so none of it showed up. Sorry about that. An “edit” feature would be nice.

Oh hey, I don’t actually care; I saw the finale. I was just messing with you.

A little eerie, yes. Obviously a coincidence, but interesting timing.

Shaun: To each their own, of course, but I just don’t understand some “Lost” fans – they complain about not getting answers for years, and when they finally come, they complain about the answers they get. There’s just no pleasing some people.

“Across the Sea” was a necessary episode. Say what you will about its placement in the season, and it wasn’t a perfect episode – I’d agree that it doesn’t hold up to the show’s all-time best, but I still thought it was well-done and I enjoyed it. “Hideous”? Really? I just don’t understand the extreme negative reactions some people had to that one.

I loved the finale, and I definitely plan to watch the whole run again sometime soon.
