Lost? Have a cupcake!

Which was exactly what I did. At 11:30 pm last night, as I watched the Lost series finale credits roll by, I reached for a chocolate cupcake and started nibbling. My mind was saying:

"WTF just happened?!"

*Spoilers*

*Spoilers*

*Spoilers*

"After all those fantastic reunions, they were dead this whole time?"

"Didn’t the writers say it wasn’t purgatory and they weren’t dead?"

Thankfully the extra dose of sugar gave my mind some clarity. What happened on the island was real including the flash-forward. This flash-sideways (as they call it) of the sixth season was some kind of holding place for everyone (that mattered) in the show to catch up with each other and move on to the light together (yep, sounds like an episode of Ghost Whisperer here).

But I still couldn’t process everything late at night. It wasn’t until the next morning after I’ve assembled these floral cuppies for a customer that I had an "Aha!" moment.

The Losties didn’t die in the plane crash. Everything that happened on the island and in flash-forward, happened. Jack died on the island after reclaiming the light and saving everyone that weren’t dead. Sawyer, Kate, Lapidus, Richard and Miles flew off the island but it wasn’t clear what happened to them. Hurley became the new Jacob and Ben, the new Richard.

The flash-sideways that was shown in season 6 was some kind of after-life where everyone that was connected during the intense events on the island decided to wait for each other to come to closure before crossing over to the light. Some of them died before or after Jack died. Spiritual? Yes, it is.

And I didn’t care in the end if a lot of questions about the island were not answered, for example: why were women having fertility issues on the island? (my theory is the real mother of Jacob and the man-in-black put a curse after she was killed after giving birth) what the heck happened to Walt? what exactly is the island? (yes, I’m still not really sure).

Lost was about relationships fostered, about sacrifice and redemption. I actually cared about the characters, they weren’t perfect, they were flawed, they were searching for something. Sounds familiar?

Lost is brilliant.

And my prediction came true: Jack was going to die but not until he passes on stewardship of the island to Hurley.

And if I’ve lost you, that’s okay…

Just have a cupcake…

* Sorry readers, I had to get the Lost Finale off my chest. I think it’s better to do it in a post than to do several tweets of 140 characters. :)

  1. I stopped watching lost but now I want to pick it up again. Hmmmm it seems to me that the writers didn’t really answer everyone questions. Hmmm. Your cupcakes look gorgeous Veron.

  2. Wow…these cupcakes look absolutely gorgeous! I think I won’t want to bite into them and spoil them…..too beautiful to eat! Maybe I’ll eat everyone that has repeats :D

  3. LOL, I thought the cupcakes were going to be of smoke monsters or something :) They’re so pretty! I haven’t followed LOST since after the second season, unfortunately, but someday.,

  4. Yes I think I might have to have a cupcake or two. I never followed lost but there were soooo many articles about the spoilers but reading it – I was… totally… lost! :)

  5. Gorgeous cupcakes!
    I tried to watch lost but to no avail
    I got lost with all the flashbacks and stuff :p

  6. They’re beautiful. I can’t comment on the show because I’ve never seen it but I can say the cupcakes are exquisite. Did you make all of those decorations? Also, what’s the secret for getting that nice twist on the frosting?

  7. I liked/loathed the finale of LOST. A part of me felt like I wasted 6 years of my life and a part felt relieved it was over. Either way, I’m glad you saved it for a blog, I would have gotten LOST reading all those tweets.
    And your cupcakes are lovely. Great job!

  8. I never watched Lost either but, please don’t punish me, I’d love a Cupcake. They look gorgeous!!!

    Have a GREAT weekend, Veron:)

  9. I am completely with you about LOST, and I am finally just posting my own LOST meal blog, but I decided not to go too into it. I will really miss that show. I think cupcakes will help me miss it less. Yours are truly beautiful! Your blog makes me want to continue chasing my food muse! – Gary

  10. I liked the finale, even though a lot of other people didn’t. It wasn’t perfect, but, really, does the last episode of a show ever completely live up to our expectations? And where was Michael?? He didn’t make it to the purgatory party?? Oh, and the cupcakes look good, too. :-)

  11. An excellent blog!I like it.but The meaning of the last paragraph a bit puzzled.It’s always good to have passions in life to keep yourself from going down the negative path and work towards staying positive.I really enjoyed this. You can look your article comments. This information has really been helpful for most of the readers. I really appreciate the way you have written about this. I will really like to read more on this from you. I know your expertise on this. I must say we should have an online discussion on this. Writing only comments will close the discussion straight away! And will restrict the benefits from this information.
