Okay, what?

Someone explain to me what just happened. I mean, yes, I get it, Jack died. Was it just Jack? Was it everyone? What about his kid? Was Sideways World real? Was it all in his head? Was everyone happy and reunited in his head or was everyone happy and reunited in Sideways World or was everyone happy and reunited in heaven? What about Desmond back on the island after they fished him out of the glowcave? What about Ben and Hurley? WHAT ABOUT BEN AND HURLEY HELPING DESMOND GET HOME? Did the Ajira plane get back to wherever? Does none of this matter because it was or was not real? That last shot after the title card--did everyone die in the original crash? I don't? What? WHAT?

ETA: Yes, I know it was purgatory, MATTHEW FOX, WHO SPENT SIX YEARS SHOUTING AT PEOPLE THAT IT WAS NOT PURGATORY, I just don't understand how much of it was purgatory--was it all purgatory in Sideways World? Was Jack's Kid just totally imaginary? Was it not purgatory at all? Are we going to split hairs, MATTHEW FOX, and claim that it is not literally purgatory, it's just something where They Were Really Dead All Along WHICH IS WHAT WE ALL MEANT BY "PURGATORY"? I JUST WHAT I DON'T KNOW.

I actually really liked it. I'm just not sure what happened.

Oddly, it reminded me a little of the ending of Places in the Heart. Or that last shot of V for Vendetta.

However! There will apparently be three alternate endings on Kimmel in about twenty minutes? MAYBE ONE OF THEM WILL BE A NON-PURGATORY ENDING.

ETA: Okay, the clearest consensus I am getting--in case passersby are getting confused--is that everything on the island was real, and Sideways World was everyone getting ready to move on after they had died, in this weird kind of all-times-collapsed-together thing where people who had died and were dying and would eventually die all came together at the same time to move on. And lo, Christian Shephard (NO REALLY) led them all into the light. Or something.

ETA: Oh! Sideways World was Titanic Heaven! Now you're speaking a language I can understand.

Weren't there explosives on the Ajira plane? So, is that what the wreckage after the title card was?

Also, OMG I CRIED SO MUCH. I teared up when Charlie and Claire reunited. I cried outright when Sawyer and Juliet reunited. And I was a straight up mess for approximately the last 5 minutes. When I realiazed that Jack was going to lie down and die WHERE HE WOKE UP IN THE PILOT, and then the last shot was OF HIS EYE CLOSING I lost it.

Re: But the explosives?!

I thought there were explosives too. But, Hurley basically could wish them a safe journey home, thereby canceling out the bomb. Jacob was a dick, Hurley was going to be more benevolent to anyone who wanted off the island.

Re: But the explosives?!

Hmm, that does make sense. I mean if Jacob had the power to give Richard eternal life I guess Hurley could make sure people got away safely. I guess each "protector" gets to make their own rules.

Re: But the explosives?!

I can't decide if that was the Ajira plane or Flight 815.

And to everything else in this comment - my reactions exactly.

Re: But the explosives?!

At first I thought it was 815, and then I was like, "Wait! That could be Ajira!" Gah!

And yeah, those last five minutes...

Re: But the explosives?!

I think that the explosives that were on the Ajira plane were the ones that FLocke used to make the backpack bomb he sent on the sub.

Re: But the explosives?!

Hmmm....that makes sense, but I could've sworn that FLocke and Widmore talked about the explosives just last episode? (I can't remember though, my mind is spent...)

Re: But the explosives?!

I was semi okay with that until VINCENT showed up, and then I just bawled :( It made me feel a tiny bit better that Jack didn't die completely and utterly alone.

Re: But the explosives?!

I know! Vincent! When Fake Locke said the thing about the dog prints, I was so excited to see Vincent again, and then THAT SCENE killed me. I was really glad that they brought Vincent back, and that he was there with Jack at the end just like he was there in the beginning. It was perfect.

Srsly tho, I love Frank.

FLocke took the C4 off the plane, stuck it in Jack's backpack, submarine went BOOM! and killed three people are deeply invested in, but not Chesty Reynolds.

Re: Srsly tho, I love Frank.

That makes sense. I guess I thought I remembered them saying something about it last episode, but at this point, my memory can't really be relied upon.

And I love Frank too. I was SO happy to find out that he didn't die in the sub.

Re: Srsly tho, I love Frank.

They did say something about it last episode. Widmore told Ben, Miles, and Richard that there were explosives on the plane after they told him they planned on blowing it up. But, I don't think Widmore knew that Locke had taken the explosives off the plane (in order to blow up the sub). When Richard and Miles picked up Frank from the sub debris, he most likely told them about the sub and that's how they knew the plane was safe. But, I'm just speculating there. Sorry if someone has already said all this. I'm just now getting caught up on all the comments.

Also, yay Frank! So glad he was alive.
