Episodes 097-101: Epilogue



Well, we've reached the end of our journey (Or for those of you that choose to ignore the flash sideways' existence, then we ended our journey yesterday).  101 episodes.  84 hours.  The entire series, for you, in chronological order.  It's been a lot of fun for me working on this project, but also a lot of work.  I've put a solid nine months of work into this, and at times I never thought I'd see the end.  I'm glad I was able to share this project with so many different people (I've had over 20,000 people visit this site from 109 different countries), and I'm certainly glad I was able to share it all without receiving a cease and desist letter from ABC :-)

This post contains the final five episodes of the series, the entire flash sideways world presented as an epilogue.  I'm not going to do a summary for the entire chapter, we all know what it is.  Our characters, in an afterlife of sorts, living a somewhat similar version of their previous lives, only not exactly the same.  Over time, each of them 'wakes up', remembers what their lives really were, and realizes that they have all died and are now together once again.  Couple things to keep in mind when watching the epilogue: First, I used some creative freedom and inverted the LOST opener and closer, because this set of episodes is different from the rest of the series, so I thought black text on white background was a cool way to differentiate.  Second, I have no doubt that some of you will notice that there is quite a lot that occurs between when we see Jin & Sun together in the hotel room, and Keamy showing up at Sun's hotel room and taking the both of them.  In a perfect world, the latter would precede the former by merely a day.  However, in what I assume is just a continuity error by the writers, the events in Keamy's kitchen take place nearly a week after Oceanic 815 landed.  So that created a definite problem in how events are depicted in Jin & Sun's storyline.  I tried to make it fit as best I could, so if you feel like it looks a little off, that's why.


The five episodes run 54:42, 50:02, 45:52, 47:53 and 63:52.  You can stream below (via Facebook), or go here to use torrents (better quality, recommended) to download the episodes to your computer.

  1. Firstly, excellent work.

    Secondly, it's not a continuity error. Time doesn't exist in the Sideways, so what may be a week for some characters may be just a day for others.

  2. I have followed this Blog since your first vid. It has truly given me an interesting new perspective on this show - its characters and why things happened the way they did. Your dedication to this project showed in every video and I can't thank you enough for the hard work you did here. I also wondered how in the HELL you did it all without out ABC cracking down on you! :) At any rate, great work, sir. From one fan to another, thank you.

  3. WOW! What can I say, I too have been following since the very first episode. Everyday, I would look forward to an episode or 2. That was the first thing I did when I got home from work was watch Chronologically LOST. Thank You for an AMAZING rewatch. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. My LOST experience has changed (in a good way). THANK YOU FOR THIS AWESOME EXPERIENCE! Bring on the DVD torrents! :)

  5. Mr. Maloney, Thank you for this. When summer first started, I said I was going to make a chronological version of LOST because no one was doing it and I thought I would have to be the only person to do it. I had uploaded the pilot onto my computer to start the process, and when I checked online to see if the name ChronoLOST was taken, it totally was. And I stumbled onto this blog the day the second episode went up and I have been watching religiously ever since. And let me tell you, I was so relieved to see that someone else thought of it and did the work and executed the project in such a way that even ABC left you alone to do it. It's been an awesome 3 1/2 months. I am forever grateful.

  6. i just finished watching all the episodes and i am emotionally wrecked. thank you so much for putting this together mike. i can understand people's frustration with the sideways during the initial run, but seeing it again, presented this way, i'm convinced this show is the greatest achievement in television.

  9. Congratulations on sharing this epic project with LOST fans. Are your plans to maintain this site for the balance of this year? or into 2011?

  10. This dude has vanished, guess he has no plans.

    Or he's busy with his big plan, but nevertheless, this dude vanished.
