Let’s see what we learned [SPOILERS FOLLOW]. Perhaps the most important thing we learned is that Desmond is the “package” that was kept in the locked room on the submarine. Apparently he is the best hope for preventing the smoke monster from getting off the island. But why?
The pockets of electromagnetic energy around the island also seem to be important somehow: Zoe is a geophysicist.
Seeing an encounter across the sonic fence barrier between “John Locke” and Charles Widmore was impressive. If it is true that Widmore knows more than he has said about the smoke monster, how did he know what his role was supposed to be in all this, after being away from the island for so long? What is his mission, and what is the background to it?
What do you think it all means? I feel like by now we ought to be able to speculate intelligently about what remains to happen between now and the final episode, and it is the sense that so much is still uncertain that leaves me feeling somewhat apprehensive.
What about you? Are you like Sayid when it comes to LOST?
