Feeling Lost

Well, the season 4 finale of the best damn show on television, Lost, aired here in the States last night.

This show just gets better and better. It seems that now that they have been given a definite cut-off date (2 more seasons) by ABC, each episode moves the story forward nicely, and answers questions at a ridiculous pace (while always managing a way to find new ones!)

Last night’s finale, while good, did not have the WOW factor of last year’s finale, but it still managed to kick a fair amount of ass. This season has, hands down, been the best ever. With now only 34 episodes left, I still can’t fathom how they are going to have all our questions answered in time for Lost's final bell to toll.

So, if you didn’t watch it last night, let's see what you missed: (in case that wasn’t enough of a warning for some of ya… HERE COME THE SPOILERS!!!).

- Jin and Michael were blown to bits, along with another handful of the other always-in-the-background Losties.

- The freighter, along with the Helicopter, was destroyed.

- Ben was finally able to move the island, but in doing so, was forced to leave and supposedly, can never return.

- The Oceanic 6 (Kate, Jack, Hurley, Sun, Sayid, and Aaron) were finally rescued, and agreed to a plan to lie to the world at large as to where they have been for the past 100 days, in order to protect those left behind on the island.

- Desmond, finally reunited with Penny, was rescued.

- Meanwhile, 3 years in the future, Jack starts to recruit the Oceanic 6 in an attempt to somehow return to the island.

- Sun, who apparently blames Locke, Jack, or God knows who else, for the death of Jin, makes a move to ally herself with James Widmore.

- And in the final BIG reveal of the night, we FINALLY learned who was in the coffin from last year’s finale…. None other than JOHN LOCKE!

Now I’ve got TONS of questions whirring in my head, that will haunt me for the next 9 months until Lost returns with season 5 next year.

Lost is, without question, the best show on network TV.

If you aren’t watching it, you are, in scientific terms, a doody brain.
