- Answering many lingering questions (who is in the coffin? How do the Oceanic 6 get off of the island?)
- Leaving Some Questions Open (Who is Jacob? What is the true nature of the island?)
- Introducing new questions (What is Charlotte's relationship to the island? Why do the Oceanic 6 have to return to the island? What happens on the island after the Oceanic 6 depart? Where did the island go? Are there any survivors of the boat explosion?)
When this show first started, people questioned whether the producers had some grand plan or just were making it up as they went along (a la X Files) just to leave us hanging when the series concludes. My prediction--I think that this series will go down in history as one of the most intelligent, intricately constructed, and exciting pieces of television even produced. The writers and producers have a grand plan, and they have had one all along. And when it finally unfolds, it is going to blow us all away.
