Yes, it's really coming to an end. Sunday, May 23rd is the Lost finale 2010, which is also the series finale. There is a lot to do to get ready for this momentous event, so I've broken it down into 10 easy steps for you.
1. Plan Your Party
2. Take the Day Off
Not only is it going to be an exhausting night, but we'll need a whole day (and beyond) to process all that we learn, and all that we still don't know and need to figure out. Monday is not a day for going to work, and in fact, should be a national holiday. You will not be able to focus on your work, so you will be doing your company a favor by taking the day off.
3. Schedule the DVR
Check, double check, and triple check your DVR or other recording device. Here's what you'll want to record:
4. Gather Your Dharma Delectibles
If you're not attending a party, or you are the host of the party, you'll need to get some food together. It's going to be a TV marathon on Sunday, so be sure you have sustenance. Get out your Dharma supplies. I suggest eating a hearty meal during or just before the recap the show. Check out Super Bowl Food and Recipes for ideas.
You'll also need some snacks handy for during the show, and how about some dessert for after the finale and before Jimmy Kimmel?
5. Get Into Character
Channel your favorite character by dressing up as him or her (or it) while you watch the finale. Get some ideas from the Lost Halloween Gallery
. And encourage your friends to do the same. How awesome would it be to watch the finale sandwiched by Desmond and pregnant Claire?
6. Stock up on Tissues
Get the tissues ready, and not just because it's going to be sad when this great series comes to an end. The finale is going to be a tearjerker for sure. It might be a good idea to give everyone in the room their own box of tissues.
There are many ways to review what has already happened. My recommendation is to skim through the photo synopses
. The pictures will refresh your memory and then the text is there to remind you of what else happened during the series.
Don't worry about what is and isn't being answered (there will be plenty of time for that over the next few years). Just kick back and enjoy the episodes. Give yourself over to the story. It's been an amazing ride, Lost fans!
