Is anyone a Lost fan?

'Lost' Finale Leaves Viewers Less Lost
By FRAZIER MOORE

As promised, "Lost" viewers were left with plenty to ponder but juicy answers to savor as well, thanks to Wednesday's season finale of the ABC mystical adventure series.

Go no further if you don't want to know what happened (or may have happened).

Roughly two months - or, more accurately, two TV seasons in real time - after Oceanic flight 815 crash-landed by this lost tropical island, viewers learned:

_ The sailboat seen at the end of last week's episode belonged to Desmond, who had been found at the start of this season in the hatch when the castaways first made their entrance. Grateful to hand to someone else the weird computer-entry task, Desmond ran away - and set sail in the boat he had arrived in years earlier. But after 2 1/2 weeks on the water, he had gotten nowhere.

"There's no outside world, there's no escape," he wailed, drunk and despondent, when the castaways retrieved him from the sailboat just offshore.

_ What may have caused the jetliner's crash: an excessive buildup of electromagnetic energy that Desmond, as the hatch's occupant at the time, failed to properly diffuse.

_ Why that numbered sequence (4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42) needed to be entered on the keyboard every 108 minutes: To diffuse the powerful buildup safely.

So the audience learned that the button really did need to be pushed, and wasn't a meaningless exercise after all, which became a season-long issue that on the finale fueled a raging argument between Locke (the disillusioned former believer) and Mr. Eko (the fiercely loyal convert to the button-pushing cause). After an explosion in the hatch, they were both unaccounted for.

_ Finally, Michael seemed to prove without a doubt that he would sell out his friends to save himself and his son, Walt, who was kidnapped at the end of last season by the Others.

After having been brainwashed by the Others, Michael had gunned down fellow castaways Ana Lucia and Libby a few episodes ago to facilitate the escape of Henry, an "Other" from across the island whom the castaways had been holding captive.

Then - despite the best efforts of Jack and Sayid to outmaneuver him - Michael made good on his plan to deliver Jack, Hurley, Sawyer and Kate to the Others in exchange for getting Walt back.

Hurley was released by the Others with an order to return to camp and warn the rest of the castaways against retaliating.

"But what about my friends?" Hurley protested.

"Your friends are coming home with us," said Henry, the Other who had been held in the hatch.

While Jack, Sawyer and Kate looked on, bound and gagged, Michael and Walt were given a motor boat to make their safe escape.

"My hunch is, you won't say a word to anybody," Henry told Michael as he sent him on his way, "because if you do, people will find out what you did to get your son back."

"Who ARE you people?" asked Michael, voicing the question that has plagued "Lost" viewers all season.

"We're the good guys, Michael," Henry said simply.

Disinclined to argue and at last reunited with Walt, Michael piloted his boat to apparent freedom.

Hoods were pulled over the heads of Jack, Sawyer and Kate. Their safety while in the Others' custody was assured by Henry. But viewers will have to wait until fall to see.

So, who was the girl that gave Desmond the boat?  It sure looked like Libby in a wig to me!  Also, I would think that Sahid is going to come to the rescue the beginning of next season.  He is going to come in search of everyone when they don't come and he will realize that Michael was also lying about the location that he was taking them to in order to get Michael back.  We know that Desmond's girlfriend hired Russians to look for him.  Now, what exactly was written on the screen?  Something electromagnetic.....wasn't it in English?  Could the computer be connected to someplace and sending signals of input information?  Lots of questions to still be answered!

No wonder, we have not had success understanding the plot while watching the show mid season...
