I just found out that my entire life had no purpose.

Dr. Linus • season 6 • episode 7

Emily, 20 – Marlton (New Jersey, USA) :

My Lost moment was when Richard and Jack are inside the Black Rock discussing how Jacob gave Richard a gift. Jack has just been to the Lighthouse, where he saw that Jacob had been watching him for his entire life. Richard asks Jack to help him kill himself and begins to explain his life to Jack. He tells Jack how Jacob gave him a “gift” that has become his curse. The show took on an entirely new meaning to me when Richard says “I devoted my life longer than you can possibly imagine, in service of a man who told me that everything was happening for a reason, that he had a plan, a plan that I was a part of. And when the time was right, that he’d share it with me. And now that man’s gone, so I want to kill myself Jack, because I just found out that my entire life had no purpose.” Not only did I feel even more connected to the show than ever, but I began to think about my own life and the people in it.
