Lost: Season 6, Episode 5: “Lighthouse”

Lost

I’m sticking with this thing to the end but, seriously, they are killing me here. A lighthouse we have never seen pops up on the island. At the top of this lighthouse, the mirrors “reflect” the childhood homes of our characters when the degree dial is cranked up to their corresponding number. Clearly any random plot or character evolution is fair game at this point, whether or not it has any grounding in what we have seen thus far. Why not just have a big hand come down out of the clouds and make the whole thing a snow globe? If we are looking at an ending that relies heavily deus ex machina moments, that would really be unfortunate after scripting such an intricate mythology for the past 6 years.
