Even though it seems like this season of Lost just started the other day, somehow it’s time for the season finale already. I could point you to any of the dozens of preview clips out there, but I’m not going to do that. Nor am I going to link to any of the recent cast interviews hinting at the Exciting Developments, Amazing Revelations and Mind Blowing Twists in store for us. I’ve been studiously avoiding all press for tonight’s episode, not just because I want to remain spoiler-free and truly surprised by whatever happens, but also because I don’t want my expectations raised to an unnaturally high degree.
I will, however, direct your attention to this video that an industrious soul has generously edited together. It’s all the Lost flashforwards presented in actual chronological order (and condensed to 8 minutes and 42 seconds, naturally).
ABC is rerunning last week’s episode tonight at 8 p.m. EDT, but Lost enthusiasts may want to tune in even if they’ve already seen it, because the episode will be slightly modified to feature some different questions at the Oceanic Six press conference than the ones we saw last week, to give us further details of the survivors’ cover story. The two-hour finale starts at 9 p.m. and will be followed by a nine-month hiatus that will give us all plenty of time to obsess and over-analyze every little detail.
