"soooo,the island was like purgatory,their chance to redeem themselves,to cast evil away?"
That's not quite how I took it.
Desmond's statement toward the beginning of tonight's episode on the island was pretty telling--he said they we going to a place where they could be with their loved ones. And, that's where they were, in the church. They'd all died, and all apparently stopped off at the church on their way to heaven. Jack's dad hinted as much at the end of the episode (he also noted that time had no meaning, so Miles, Frank, Richard, Claire, Sawyer and Kate, who made it off on the plane, presumably went back to their lives off the island, while Hurley and Ben stayed on the island, and presumably found a way for Desmond to get home).
I took it as all the sideways flashes this season were them realizing they were dead, and accepting their deaths.
It was a nice framing device, too. The first frame of the first episode was Jack opening his eyes on the island; the last frame of the last episode was Jack closing his eyes on the island.

i think we'll get a Lost movie.
I think it was more Pleroma than Purgatory but yes, basically Purgatorial.
(I don't want to violate any tank rules going into detail).
but I can quote Jung:
"nothing and everything. It is quite fruitless to think about pleroma. Therein both thinking and being cease, since the eternal and infinite possess no qualities."

Sounds like a massive copout ending. glad I never watched it to avoid being pissed off at that ending.

So I'm thinking they had to stop the "light" at the end of the tunnel to make "Locke" human enough to kill to end him as a threat to the rest of the world? Then they could restart the light and everything is ok from then on...a cosmic reset to rid the virus of the black smoke monster?

I didn't see the island as purgatory - I think the flashforward was - it was a holding ground of sorts until everything got sorted out on the island. But everything that happened on the island actually happened - who lived, who died, etc.

I think basically what it came down to was that everything that happened on the island really was only relevant to the fact that it was the most important event in all their lives and what brought them all together.

I'd call all the reunion moments really manipulative if I hadn't enjoyed them. That was good finale material right there, giving glimpses of the past, like a curtain call.
There were a lot of good 1 on 1 character moments. Hurley getting to be in charge was cool. That was some nasty looking water though. I'm wondering what capacity Jack's son exists in. An invention of his father or part of his personality?
Kind of nifty how they bookended the series with matching scenes. I expected things to end somewhat vaguely, some people will be pissed off. I was hoping their happy time reunion dimension would be genuine.

awesome ending, def liked it, makes you think of what the ones on the plane went through after leaving the island and how long ben and hurley where in charge before they all died eventually. awesome just awesome but I can already see many arent getting it or understanding, another forum I visited had like 20 posts back to back completely in a dif direction. hurley saying to ben you were a great #2 shows the island did happen. of course there were some things not answered but pffft still good anyway imo
