These are my headcanons for what happens with the surviving characters after the finale. If you have your own headcanon please just reblog and add yours because I would love to read them!
- When Claire meets with her mom again is a very emotional encounter because she still feels responsible for the car crash but her mom tells her it was never her fault and she can finally let the guilt go.
- Sawyer meets his daughter Clementine. At first Cassidy didn’t want him around her but then she finds out it was Sawyer who left all that money to Clementine’s name and realises he always cared about her in his own way and gives him a chance. To Cassidy’s surprise he ends up being a great dad.
- Aaron grows up to be an amazing musician and when poeple congratulate him Claire always says “he gets that talent from his dad”.
- Kate and Sawyer remain best friends for the rest of their lifes and they confort each other when they miss Jack and Juliet.
- When they leave the island Aaron still thinks Kate is his mom and she and Claire decide to rise him together as the son of both. They live together and Aaron simply has two moms now.
- Claire actually has Charlie’s DS ring (we know Sun found it so let’s assume she gave it to Claire off camera) and when Aaron is older she gives it to him and explains his daddy was a hero who died to save all of them.
- Sawyer starts using his real name “James Ford” and asks to never be called Sawyer again. When Kate’s asks why the change he answers “I don’t need to pretend to be something else, not anymore”.
- In the island Hurley gets rid of the stupid old rules from Jacob and now people who live in the island are allowed to leave if they want to or go to the mainland from time to time to visit their friends and family. Hurley himself goes very often to visit the rest of the gang.
- Kate travels to Seul every year for Ji Yeon’s birthday and gives her a present. And Hurley uses his new powers to have an eye on Ji Yeon and make sure she’s well and happy.
- Desmond and Penny don’t need to hide anymore so they stop living in the boat and they buy a house near to Claire’s and Kate’s. Aaron and little Charlie grow up to be best friends.
- Penny meets with Eloise Hawking and learns Faraday was her half-brother. She decides to honor his memory and uses her wealth to start “The Daniel Faraday Foundation” which provides young scientists with resources to further their investigations. Eloise publishes Faraday’s investigations and he will be remebered in the science community as a genius.
- After leaving the island they all thought the sassy Miles wouldn’t keep in contact with them but they were wrong. He often visits Sawyer and keeps calling him “boss” or “LaFleur” to annoy him.
- After Hurley and Ben bring adult-Walt back to the island he talks with the ghost of his father and helps him to move on so Michael is no longer stuck there.
- Walt lives the rest of his life in the island and eventually becomes the new protector of the island after Hurley.
- When he is an adult the island “calls” Aaron because he was born there and he lives his own crazy adventures.
ten characters; hugo ‘hurley’ reyes “Okay, that thing in the woods, maybe it’s a monster, maybe it’s a pissed off giraffe, I don’t know! The fact that no one is even looking for us? Yeah, that’s weird. But I just go along with it, ‘cause I’m along for the ride. Good old fun-time Hurley! Well, guess what?! Now, I want some friggin’ answers!“
I hate that every time I bring up LOST someone has to make that shitty joke that goes “The real mystery is how Hurley didn’t lose weight after all that time stranded in an island”.
First of all this joke has been made 98763736483 times already, please stop.
Second of all it was always clear that they had more than enough food. In season 1 they had loads of fruit and boar-meat (may not be a very diverse diet but they were definitely not hungry) and after opening the hatch they had a huge amount of Dharma-food, even chocolate and snacks. In one episode a ton of food literally fells from the sky. There’s no logical reason for any of the survivors to lose weight.
But imagine for a moment these fan’s complains are valid and the survivors didn’t have all this food, then why is the focus only on Hurley? If the camp were short on food then everybody would lose weigh. But the audience didn’t want Jack or the rest of the hot people to lose weight for “realism”, no, the only “continuity error” for them was Hurley. Because it has never been about realism (C'mon from all the illogical things in LOST the problem you see is an overweight guy?) the issue is these people couldn’t bear that there was a TV show with a fat latino as a main character.
I’m so happy Jorge Garcia never cared about this criticism. One of the heroes in LOST is fat and that doesn’t make him any less great. Deal with it.
