Hey guys, up until the finale airs, I'll hopefully be posting my ten worst ways that Lost could end. Prepare yourself. I'm basing these on endings that would be SO bad that they would ruin the show forever.
Here's the first one, which I call:
SPACE HIBERNATION PODS
Open on a close up of an eye.
Pull out to reveal — It’s Jack’s eye. And he’s lying frozen... inside of a space hibernation pod.
An alarm is going off. It’s a familiar sound — much like the one in the hatch.
The pod opens on its own, and oxygen starts to fill Jack’s lungs. He coughs violently. Then sits up.
He rubs his face. He’s wearing an astronaut uniform. His beard is long.
Another pod opens next to him, and a female coughs. It's Kate.
Ugh, space hibernation. It’s the worst.
Jack has a strange, distant look on his face.
Jack, what’s wrong? (checking her gauge) Hey, we weren’t supposed to wake up yet.
I just had the weirdest space dream.
Hello Jack, Hello Kate. This is J.A.C.O.B. And… I woke you.
Computer, why? We’re not even near home.
There was a problem in The Source. But proper levels have been restored.
The power supply of the ship? Give me the error code.
4 8 15 16 23 42.
Smoke damage? in the heart of the ship?
Something became… locked up.
A recorded image of the ship’s engine appears before Jack’s face on a floating screen. The engine is jammed; shaking and sparking. It's making a familiar clicking sound – and it's emitting dark smoke.
I thought you were the perfect candidates to help dislodge the drive. But it seems I awoke you prematurely.
You've already fixed it? How?
Using the Faraday equation combined with Hume's constant. I ran the numbers then rebooted the system. We’re back on track. Things are as they should be. You may return to space hibernation. Sorry for the inconvenience. And namaste.
Namaste. (to Jack) You okay?
Jack pauses, rubbing his face. Exhausted.
Yeah. (sighs) Namaste.
He glances at Kate. They smile at each other, then lay back as their pods seal shut.
We then pan across the other pods near them. Rows and rows of pods. We see Hurley, Sayid, Sun, Jin and other familiar faces, all frozen in hibernation, sleeping in clearly numbered pods.
We pull out further and see the exterior of a massive spaceship, with a Dharma logo on the side, along with a name:
The U.S.S. Island.
Cut to black.
