By that, I mean, next May won't be a season finale - it will be the series finale with nothing left to look forward to.

I'm sad this is it for maybe 8-9 months, if they do it the way they did this year.

I wish they would give us a 24-show season, rather than 16 shows. (It is 16, right?)

Anyway - to me it's like the best of times, the worst of times. I can't wait till Wednesday night to see what happens, and I dread that it's the last show for so many months. I love looking forward to the Wednesday night show.

I know. The next week or so is sad because all my shows are ending, or already have. I guess I'll have more time to Sploofus, though.

Predictions, anyone? How's it going to end - meaning Wednesday night's?

obviously kate, sawyer and juliet are not just going to leave on the sub. with regards to the setting off the bomb i think someone important is going to die. and am torn between the idea that jacob does not exist or that christian is jacob!! can't wait to see the finale!!

I can't breathe - again.

Seeing Star Trek and then this in one day is just about too much for me. I had no idea I'd be so affected by Star Trek - and I absolutely knew this show tonight would.

Honestly, I never liked Juliet all that much. I do now.

But the thought that we have to wait till next February (the equivalent of getting pregnant today and having a baby the day of the next new show) is daunting.

I have always loved Juliet and felt sorry for her. Here she just wants to help people have healthy babies and she gets stuck on the island with Crazy Ben and his cronies. I cried like a baby watching that part.

I saw an odd comment that someone didn't like the end of the finale. What did they think was going to happen? They've spent 3 episodes building up to it, how could it not happen?

What's going to be amazing is the first few minutes of the next show. Will the bomb reset everything? Or will it cause everything, as Miles suggested? Will they retain any memories? This is going to be one wild ride.

Jacob's story was fascinating. Did you notice he touched each one? The hand of fate...

I don't agree with all of this person's wonderings, as some of the questions he posits have obvious answers, but still, there's some interesting stuff here:

I just didn't trust Juliet. But as they fleshed out her character, she turned out very trustable and I turned out very wrong.

Did I miss something? I was loving how Jacob touched each person's life - I HATED what he did to Sayid.

But I was expecting him to give Hurley the 6 numbers. Did he and I missed it? Those numbers had to come to Hurley from somewhere tied to the island. If Jacob didn't tell him in the finale, maybe it will show next year where they came from. I did appreciate Jacob telling Hurley maybe instead of being cursed, he was blessed.

I truly can hardly wait.....and on the other hand, the sooner it gets here, the sooner the show will go away.

So I was thinking....since JJ Abrams likes sequels, maybe he plans a sequel? Nobody would appreciate it more than I. I mean, they won't be "lost" any more. Maybe that's the answer to why they're ending it so soon?

Check out Lostpedia - a wiki with thousands of articles about this show.

In fact, you could use this as your summer reading assignment to read all the articles.

There is an interesting article in through about how this might be related to the "lost" tribes of Israel or the 12 tribes of Israel - the sons/descendants of Jacob and perhaps a parallel to either the Jacob and Esau story or Cain and Abel.

I am fascinated at how many fans are seeing Biblical references in this.

There are so many obvious Biblical references. I mean Jacob and the other guy at the beginning wearing black and white. jacob being willingly sacrificed (i guarantee, Jacob's coming back.) Ben being a Judas type character, not being satisfied with his position with Jacob, having a very selfish attitude. I mean, so much came together for me in this episode. The black smoke monster, some of my other theories about Christian and the other "dead" people that keep showing up. I love this show!!!

Oh - I was seeing Jacob as an evil character. He stood there distracting Sayid as Nadia was killed by a car.

I think he saved Sayid's life by making sure he wasn't also standing in the road as Nadia found her glasses and stopped to comment on it. It was sad, but obviously necessary.

I was thinking this morning how every single person in Lost has a problem - physical, emotional, mental. Maybe all the people who didn't survive the crash had a pretty settled life, but the survivors all had problems that the Island (and Jacob?) solved. And as even survivors had their problems solved, they died off (Charlie totally cleaned of drugs, Shannon overcame selfishness and resentment and loved Sayid). Is that at all something you guys think?

Hey Jank.. I haven't checked this group in a while so I've been catching up. Just to your question about where Hurley got the numbers from.. I remember a few seasons back when he mentioned he got them from another inmate at the asylum - can't remember who that inmate was but, I do know that bad things happened to that other guy after using them - and he travelled to Aussie to visit the guy's mom, who lost her arm and other nasty things happened to all of the family. That's how Hurley deduced that they were baaad mojo after he won the lottery.

The lady Hurley visited in Australia was the widow of the man (Stan Toomey) the guy in the asylum (Leonard) got the numbers from. Toomey had committed suicide, also believing in the curse. Toomey, in turn heard the numbers 16 years previously, presumably from the same transmission Rousseau heard.

Jan, I like your thoughts on the ones who died being "fixed", but that doesn't apply to Paulo and Nikki, although they were just throw-away characters that got a showcase during the run-up to the writer's strike (not sure of the time frame). They sucked as characters and I'm glad they were killed off. But as to the regular characters, it's a pretty good theory. I can see it for Mr. Eko, but what about Boone?
