Lost: The End finale recap
The finale begins with shots of our main cast members in both the island and sideways worlds, catching us up to where they are in each place.
Christian Shephard’s body has been found, and is being delivered to his wake. Desmond signs for it. Kate watches from the car. She asks what he’s doing, what does he want. He wants to leave, he says.
On the island, Sawyer approaches Jack, standing in the water after his conversation with Jacob. Jack tells Sawyer, Kate and Hurley that they have to protect the heart of the island from the smoke monster. Sawyer references Moses; Hurley references Star Wars.
In the sideways world, Hurley and Sayid return to the hotel where they had the shootout in the original timeline. Hurley asks Sayid if he remembers anything; he doesn’t. Charlie is at the hotel, looking fairly drunk and the worse for wear. Hurley wants to take him to the concert, Charlie’s not interested. So Hurley shoots him with a tranquilizer and puts him in the Hummer.
On the island, Kate asks Jack why he took the job as Jacob’s replacement. He says it’s because the island is all he has left.
Sawyer goes to the well, where he’s apprehended by Ben and Locke. He escapes, after telling Locke he’s not a candidate anymore. Ben asks why he doesn’t go after him; Locke says he doesn’t need to.
Desmond wakes up at Rose and Bernard’s camp. Rose says after Desmond eats, he has to move on. They don’t get involved anymore, she says. It’s too late though, as Locke and Ben have found their way to the camp. Locke tells Desmond to come with him immediately or he’ll kill them now and make it hurt. Desmond says if you give your word to leave Rose and Bernard alone forever, he’ll go with him.
In the jungle, Miles tries to call Ben. He’s found Richard. Ben doesn’t pick up. Richard tells Miles they need to blow up the plane.
On the sideways world, Miles sees Sayid at the museum concert. He calls Sawyer and says he thinks Sayid is on the loose, and asks Sawyer to check in on Sun, assuming Sayid may be after her.
At the hospital, Juliet is Sun’s doctor. Juliet performing an ultrasound causes Sun to have a flashback to the island and remember what happened – she tells Jin, “Remember.” As he sees the baby on the ultrasound, he does.
On the island, Sawyer tells Jack that Locke is going to blow up the island with Desmond. Jack says they’re all heading to the same place.
Back on the sideways world, Jack is about to operate on Locke, and says he thinks it has a good chance of working. Locke asks about Jack’s dad; Jack says they did find him. Locke says he hopes that brings him peace; Jack says fixing Locke will bring him all the peace he needs.
On the island, Miles points out that Richard has a gray hair. Richard says he just realized he wants to live. They row toward the second island. A body hits their boat. Lapidus is nearby, clinging to a life raft. Richard says they’re going to blow up the plane. Lapidus says, why don’t we just take the plane instead?
Jack’s group comes across Locke; Kate begins shooting. You might save your bullets, Locke says.
So it’s you, Locke says. A little obvious, isn’t it? I volunteered, Jack said.
Jack says you are headed to the light, where you think you’re going to destroy the island. But you’re not; I’m going to kill you. How are you going to do that, asks Locke? It’s a surprise, says Jack.
In the sideways world, Jack runs into Juliet and gives her tickets to David’s concert – Juliet is David’s mom. Sawyer shows up at the hospital looking for Sun.
On the island, Sawyer wants to know how Jack will kill Locke. He says Desmond; he believes Desmond is a weapon. “That’s a hell of a long con, doc,” says Sawyer.
Locke says Jack, Desmond, it’s just me and you from here on. The three head past the bamboo forest. Desmond tells Jack that this doesn’t matter; him destroying the island and Jack destroying Locke, it doesn’t matter. Desmond says when they lower him into the light, they will go somewhere that they can be with the ones they love. Jack disagrees; he says all of this matters.
Desmond goes into the tunnel, followed by Locke.
On the sideways world, Sayid asks Hurley what’s going on; he can’t tell him, there are rules. Hurley says he has to trust him; and that Hurley trusts Sayid. They see a fight in an alley; Sayid jumps out of the car to intervene. It’s Shannon. They each flash back to the island. Boone comes up and talks to Hurley. Thanks for taking your time, he says – he’s in on the situation.
On the island, Miles calls Ben and says he’s taking the plane off the island. Claire is on Hydra Island with a gun. She shoots at Miles, Ben and Lapidus. Richard says they aren’t with Locke, they’re trying to leave. We can go home. Will you go with us? No, she says.
Desmond is heading to where the light is brightest. Jack and Locke are lowering him down. “This remind you of anything, Jack?” asks Locke. “If there was a button down there, we could fight about whether or not he should push it.”
Jack says, you’re not Locke. Locke was right. Smokey/Locke says no, Locke was wrong about everything. They look over the precipice together.
At the concert on the sideways world, Juliet, Claire and David arrive. Juliet gets a call and has to step away. Charlotte awakens Charlie, who’s wearing a sign saying “bass player, wake me up for show.” Charlotte asks Daniel where he should go; Daniel has a moment of recognition but doesn’t seem to have the entire island flashback experience.
David and Claire are seated with Desmond and Kate. Kate is surprised to see Claire, who she ran into in the sideways world before.
At the concert, Miles’ dad introduces Daniel Widmore and Driveshaft. Daniel begins playing piano; Charlie sees Claire in the audience. He stares at her; she thinks her water may have broken. Kate goes off after her.
On the island, Desmond is deep in the cave of light; there’s a skeleton there. There’s a rock surrounded by bright light in a pool of water. Desmond jumps in and begins being shocked by apparent electromagnetic forces. He pulls the rock, which appears to be a kind of cork. There’s a sound, like a drain, and then the light fades. Fire and smoke come from the hole. “No!” screams Desmond. “It looks like you were wrong,” says Locke. “Goodbye, Jack.”
Jack tackles Locke and begins hitting him; Locke bleeds. “Looks like you were wrong, too,” he says. Locke bashes him with a rock and leaves him lying on the ground, in a position similar to Jack’s first appearance in the pilot.
Claire wanders backstage, having contractions. Kate shows up to try to help. Eloise sits next to Desmond at the concert. I thought I told you to stop this, she says. You did, I chose to ignore you.
Charlie comes backstage and sees Claire in labor. Kate asks him for water and blankets. It’s about time for you to push, Kate says. Kate flashes back to the island. Aaron is born. Charlie returns with a blanket. As Claire touches his hand, they remember their lives on the island. “Claire!” Charlie says, and kisses her. Desmond comes back and finds them. “Do you understand?” he asks Kate.
On the island, the island seems to be coming apart. A tree lands on Ben. Jack awakens in pouring rain. He goes to find Desmond. Hearing no response, he runs into the jungle. Sawyer, Kate and Hurley try to move the tree from Ben. It’s too heavy. Quakes seem to be shaking the island. Miles calls; what’s happening? Lapidus is working on the plane, then they are taking off. He says they’re leaving in an hour. Sawyer says how will we get there? Ben says Locke has a boat.
On the cliffs, Locke prepares to take the ladder down to his boat. Jack catches up to him. Locke draws his knife and runs at him.
Fight! Jack and Locke struggle, each trying to get the knife. The cliff begins to collapse. Locke gets the knife, stabbing Jack in the gut. He tries to stab him again; Jack grabs his hand. Locke says, “You died for nothing.” As the knife begins to cut into Jack’s neck, Kate shoots Locke. “I saved you a bullet,” she says.
“You’re too late,” says Locke. Jack kicks Locke off the cliff; he lands in a position not unlike that of Locke after being thrown from the building.
In the sideways world, Jack’s neck is bleeding. Locke’s surgery was a success. He’s waking up sooner than expected. Try to relax, Jack tells him.
“It worked,” Locke says. We don’t really know, says Jack. “I can feel my legs,” says Locke, and wiggles a toe. He then remembers waking up on the island, able to walk. He asks Jack if he remembers. Jack says he has to go see his son. “You don’t have a son, Jack,” says Locke. Jack says Locke needs to rest. Then Locke tells him, I hope somebody does for you what you just did for me.
On the island, the crazy weather seems to have stopped. Kate tries to help Jack. Sawyer, Hurley and Ben arrive. “Locke’s dead, it’s over,” Kate says, just as there’s another quake.
On the sideways world, Sawyer goes to check on Sun and Jin. They’re not worried about Sayid; they’re safe, they say. “We’ll see you there,” says Jin. “See me where?” asks Sawyer as they walk out.
On the island, Lapidus tries to start the plane. There’s a problem with the hydraulics, Lapidus sends Miles to check it out. Ben calls, asks what the timetable is. “Don’t bother me,” Lapidus replies.
Locke’s dead, why is this still happening, Kate asks. Because whatever Desmond turned off, I need to turn back on, Jack says. Kate tells him to let the island sink. I can’t, Jack says. Jack tells Sawyer to get them across on the boat, and they shake hands. Thanks Doc, for everything, Sawyer says.
Hurley says he’s not going on the boat, he’s going with Jack. Ben says if the island’s going down, he’s going with it. Jack tells Kate to go and get Claire on the plane. “Tell me I’m going to see you again,” she says. He can’t. They kiss. “I love you,” she says. “I love you,” he replies. Holding his side, Ben, Hurley and Jack head back toward the area where the light once was.
Miles and Richard try to fix the plane as the island continues to shake. Sawyer calls Richard and says he’s heading their way. Frank says, we’re taking off while we can, so if you want to get here, get here. Kate and Sawyer leap from the cliff and head for the boat.
On the sideways world, Sawyer runs into Jack in the hallway, and asks where some food is. Sawyer thinks something is odd but can’t place it. Sawyer’s dollar gets caught in the vending machine. Juliet sees him with his hand stuck in the vending machine and asks if she can help. She tells him to unplug the machine and plug it back in and his candy will fall. As she hands him the candy, they touch, and flash back to the island. They embrace, then kiss. Hooray for happy endings!
Jack made his way to the concert, but it’s over. Kate’s there. She asks him if he’s looking for someone. He asks where he remembers her from. I stole your pen, Kate says, from Oceanic 815. And that’s how I know you? he asks. No, that’s not how you know me. She comes up to him, touches his face, and says, “I’ve missed you so much.”
He begins to flash back, but doesn’t understand. Come with me, and you’ll understand, Kate says.
On the island, Hurley is helping Jack along. Boulders are falling as the earth continues to quake. Jack says he’s going alone. How will you survive? asks Hurley. Jack’s eyes tell him that he doesn’t intend to. Jack says if someone has to take care of the island, it needs to be Hurley. Jack says he’s supposed to do this, and Hurley needs to protect the island. Jack gives Hurley water to drink. “Now, you’re like me,” he says.
