So, at the start of the season, I professed my confusion over the thousand and one mysteries posed on LOST which were never answered. A few of you wrote to tell me that those questions had, in fact, been answered, but I remained dubious. And, um, still totally confused.
Now, the fine folks over at Entertainment Weekly have posted this article, which posits the remaining mysteries that NEED to be answered on the final season of LOST. There are a bunch of mysteries that I mentioned back in February (Walt! What's going on with Walt? Why was he taken? What was the deal with his powers?! The list goes on....), and a few I'd forgotten (polar bears, anyone?).
I guess what's annoying me about the show is that they seem to be abandoning the old mysteries in favor of new ones. In an interview with E!, the show's creators seemed to indicate that some mysteries would never be solved and others were solved in online games (the numbers, specifically). Wha?! Some mysteries will never be solved?!? You mean I just devoted YEARS out of my life, waiting for some payoff that may never come?!? AAARRRRGGGG!
And more annoying still is the idea that the numbers were explained somewhere on the internet. Now, I'd read about what the numbers mean on various chatrooms, too, but shouldn't the show address it IN THE ACTUAL SHOW?! Not only am I expected to watch every week, but now the show is also giving me homework???
So, for those of you who were just as frustrated as I was after watching this year's Sopranos-esque season finale, I give you, once again, Josh Holloway without his shirt on:
You can thank me later.
