The deity of “Lost”

The deity of “Lost” May 18, 2009

Earlier in the history of this blog, we would discuss the occasional Christian symbolism and imagery of “Lost.” At the season finale last week, all of that rushed back big time. We learn that the apparent deity of the island is a Christ-like figure named Jacob who has intervened in key moments in the various characters’ lives. In this episode, someone who looks like Locke (who didn’t rise from the dead after all) and the evil-yet-strangely-sympathetic Ben kill Jacob, though that hardly looks like the end. Oh, yes, at another time, other of the main characters blow up the island with a hydrogen bomb in the hopes of reversing time so that none of this happens. See this for a recap and discussion. That has to be one of the best season finales since TV shows have been putting them on.
