The New Man in Charge – Recap of LOST’S Epilogue

The epilogue commences with Benjamin Linus[ Michael Emerson] entering a  Dharma  Logistics Warehouse located in Guam and relieving the  attendants of the station from their duties as the station is being closed.

In an attempt to provide them  with some information,Ben allows  each of the two  workers to ask a  question. Ben explains how they have been shipping  foods to an island[  explaining  the mystery of why food was being dropped from the sky on the island] and that  the coordinates of this island have been changing since it moves. When the other  attendant asks why polar bear food is being sent to an island , presumably located in the tropics, Linus attempts to answer the question  by  showing the two a Dharma orientation video from  Dr. Pierre Chang . The  condition for seeing the video  was that  the two men would leave afterwards, to which they both agreed.

In the video, further questions regarding the island are answered. We learn that the experiments of the polar bears, who were  placed in the cages, were to test various biological traits and their  adaptability  under the influence of electromagnetism. We also receive   further hints that the electromagnetism  impacts pregnancy on the island as the video  indicates that attention must be given in order to ensure that  female    bears have not been impregnated since  serious issues result  from this  at the end of the first trimester.

The  video goes on to explain the purpose of the mysterious  chair in room 23,  which in the series was under control by the Others. Viewers may recall that Carl , Alex’s boyfriend was  forced in the chair when he had been captured by the Others.  According to the video, the chair was used  as way  to interrogate   the Hostiles  by obtaining info on their  traditions,  lifestyle and worship of Jacob.   A special video and glasses were  to be provided to the  hostile after the interrogation was complete so that  his/her memory of the  incident would  be wiped clean.

The video  concluded  shortly afterwards and   Ben   extends his farewells to the attendants who were  substantially reimbursed for their  20 years of service to the station.

Afterwards, Ben  visits  Santa Rosa Mental Institute to meet Walt[ Malcolm David Kelly], who is  now reffered to as Keith Johnson  .Ben offers his apologies to Walt for kidnapping him when he was on the island .  Ben    reminds Walt that he is special and  that he  does not belong outside of the island because of this difference. Ben  also adds that Walt can help his father despite the fact that he is dead. This suggests that Walt  will be significant in   releasing Michael’s burden  of being a Whisper on the island  for his  acts of murder against Anna Lousia and Libby.

Walt agrees to join Ben and the two meet Hurley[  George Garcia] inside  a Dharma van.  Hurley  assures Walt that he is not crazy and just needs  to  return to the island as this is where he belongs.  When Walt  questions why this is, Hurley  responds   by saying that he has a job  for him. They drive off  as  they  must now return to the  island, concluding  the 12 minute epilogue.

    I personally thought the Epilogue was lame. A sort of hey, I saw that extra money in your pocket, c’mon, give it here – don’t make me hurt you! The answers provided were obvious and superfluous. Walt being returned to the Island to sit on a rock beside the Skipper and Gilligan for five or six decades and watch the sea roll in and out was absurd. The Island is done, now and forever, and there won’t be any movie or spinoff for that too would be absurd. They want to keep our money, not waste it on some idiotic little pipe dream of some of the more naive fans. Your blog about this was more informative and useful than this lame attempt to partially apologize for that ridiculous ending. Good Job… Visit my blog at http://www.howlostgotlost.com and leave a comment, if you would be so kind.

  2. Hello John,

    Thank you sharing your thoughts on the epilogue.

    I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied by the information and character development contained wthin the epilogue.However, I am glad to hear that you found this post useful.

    As for Walt, I believe that he will serve a strong purpose in the island with his new job as he is “special”. Ben suggested he would be able to use this trait to help whispers on the island, such as his father to move on. However, I do understand your point of view as there is no clear indication as to what exactly is special about Walt and how he would perform his role on the island.

    I will visit your blog and leave a comment on it shortly . Thank you for inviting me.
