Alterna-Lost 2



Graduation Jack:

This is actually how the series ends. We find out that Jack is actually the Valedictorian of his high school class (of course, because who better to play an 18 year old than a 38 year old). Kate, Sayid, Hurley, Charlie, Claire, Sawyer, we eventually find out they’re all his classmates. Ben is one of his teachers and Locke is the principal.
Jack is an amateur author and the camera zooms in on him frantically typing away at the computer. The last sentence we see typed is “Juliet slammed the rock down as hard as she could until the earth shook and a blinding white light annihilated the godforsaken island”. He’s clearly very pleased with his work.

Next, we see Ben hand back the story, which was supposed to be Jack’s final assignment with a dismal B- at the top of it. A disheartened Jack goes home and burns the story, only to have to write his Valedictorian speech. As he’s giving the speech, the camera zooms on each of the classmates. Hurly is pulling a candy bar from his graduation robe, Kate is longingly gazing at Sawyer, while looking at her fake id. Sawyer is reading a hunting magazine, Jin is translating Jack’s speech for Sun, then they both shrug because they have no idea what he’s talking about. Charlie is writing a song named “Claire”. While Claire is shown at home with Aaron, watching Maury Povitch. Oh and Sayid pulls the fire drill interrupting graduation as he runs off without getting caught. Green Days “time of your life” is playing in the background

The last scene is of Ben who triumphantly informs Locke that he’s got enough evidence to get him kicked out as principal, so of course, Ben can take over.
