This is the first of a few posts where I'm just going to express the thoughts that I got while watching the finale. Thoughts like, what an aspect of the show reminded me of in a cinematic, literary, biblical, philosophical, or whatever, connection. I don't want to read too much (or sometimes anything) into what the scene brought to my mind. It's just a bubble of thought that rose to the surface of my fermenting Lost brain.
For instance, the minute Juliet began to go for the bomb, it reminded me of the scene in "Beneath The Planet Of The Apes" where Taylor makes his last dying act -- one that sets off the bomb to destroy the waring apes and mutants, and put an end to the madness. Oddly enough before he does it Zaius tells him, "Man is evil, capable of nothing but destruction," similar to what the MIB told Jacob on the beach. I'm just sayin'. :o)
