The ultimate season of Misplaced was cut up up into two realities. One was a continuation of the primary timeline from the primary 5 seasons. This timeline is the “actual world” and it is this world that this text is targeted on. The opposite actuality is the “flash sideways” which is revealed to be a type of “purgatory” (I do not know if that is the very best phrase for it, but it surely’s some type of “publish life” world) on the finish of the finale episode.
The “flash sideways” world happens in a spot exterior of time. It occurs after all the characters die, even when they die at completely different instances (which they clearly do.)
However this text is about who survived on the finish of the “actual world” timeline because the present ends? Who both escaped the island for good or was nonetheless alive on the island on the finish?
Escaped The Island On The Aircraft
The primary group of people that clearly survived had been those that had been on the aircraft flown by Frank Lapidus. Sawyer, Kate, Claire, Miles, & Richard had been on the aircraft as passengers.
Survived On The Island
Hurley was the “new Jacob” on the finish of the sequence (after Jack’s loss of life) with Ben as his “#2.” Bernard and Rose had been additionally nonetheless alive (avoiding drama!)
Desmond was additionally alive on the island on the finish of the sequence however it’s implied that he leaves to affix his spouse (Penny) and his son (Charlie) as a result of Ben tells Hurley he would not must do issues the way in which Jacob did (folks can depart the island.)
And I do not wish to overlook Vincent the canine (who so poignantly visits Jack as he is dying on the finish.)
Walt, Aaron, Penny, Jin & Solar’s child, and Eloise Hawking are another characters from the present who’re nonetheless alive on the finish.
