Lost character endings ranked worst to best
ABC's hit series Lost may have concluded its run over a decade ago, but the debate about its ending is still going strong. Whether you loved or hated its existential finale, it's hard to deny that some characters' storylines wrapped up better than others, with most characters actually getting two endings over the course of the show — in the real world and the afterlife. While every character was dead by the end of the finale, not all of those deaths were shown in the episodes, and a privileged few actually managed to escape the island alive and well to eventually pass away at some indeterminate point in the future.
But just because some characters survived the island, that doesn't necessarily mean they got the best endings, as a poetic TV show death can carry more narrative punch than ambiguous survival. On the other hand, some characters' middling endings in the real world paled in comparison to their poignant afterlife codas. So which of Lost's main cast got the best conclusion overall, and which ones got the worst? Well, we took our best shot at ranking all the endings of the show's most prominent characters, from worst to best.
