So the second season of LOST came to an end tonight with half a dozen plot twists making it the great climax of the year. A lot of the mystery surrounded Desmond, a character we haven’t seen on the show since the beginning of the season. Who would’ve known that such a brief and obscure character would have such a huge impact on the plot. The mystery behind the hatch still remains, although now we know what happens when they don’t enter the numbers. I didn’t quite understand the electromagnetic explanation and I guess that remains another mystery. But at least the reason for Flight 815 crashing in the first place has been revealed.
What role Jack, Sawyer and Kate will play as hostages in “the others” camp is something to look out for next season. And will Michael and Walt get away and never return?
Other mysteries during the episode include a giant green bird and more importantly the foot of a giant statue, to which Saeed wonders out loud what is worse: that the foot is missing a body or that it has only 4 toes. What purpose it will serve next year is yet to be known. But as the LOST slogan goes “Everything Happens For a Reason”.
The episode ended in one the most interesting ways I’ve seen yet. At first I thought it was a whole other Dharma Initiative happening somewhere else in the world. But I guess it’s not. (That would’ve been a good plot idea though).
I can’t wait till next season. Just 3 and a half more months left.
