When a television show has been as hyped up as Lost has over the last few years, living up to fan expectations can be a bit on the difficult side. The series finale ofLost has been turned into an all night event on ABC with festivities set to kick off Sunday, May 23, 2010 at 7pm Eastern Time. No doubt, millions of televisions across the USA will be tuned in to find out how things work out for Jack, Kate, Sawyer, and Hurley.
Over the past few episodes, Lost has addressed several questions that have dogged viewers over the past seasons. The only problem is with a show with a ravenous following like Lost, can the series finale possible answer all the questions in one week? Among the many fan favorite questions are: What exactly is “The Island?”, “What exactly is going on?”, and “What is up with Locke, exactly?”. Granted the show has answered several questions already in the closing episodes. The cast has even been trimmed down as major characters have experienced unexpected and sudden demises. It would seem any fan who expected the show to close in a neatly wrapped up package might indeed be getting their wish. However the exact connotation of the alternate reality has yet to be addressed, and while Jack has accepted the job as successor to Jacob is he exactly going to be the new guardian of the Island? While many viewers are drawing their own conclusions, the series finale of Lost should provide the answers many are seeking, at least most of the answers.
Still with a show like this, there are so many questions floating around it is unlikely that all the tiny details will be answered. This is process that will leave some fans wondering, and likely wanting more. Without a doubt this is one of the most anticipated finales in recent memory, and that is really what Sunday night is all about. Fans should be celebrating a great story that has had some ups and downs, but has managed to deliver solid entertainment for the past six seasons and seems to be culminating in a tell all finale that encompasses a clash between good and evil. But, as any Lost fan knows, things are not always what they seem. Sometimes the bad guys and the good guys are the last people you expect them to be, and perhaps that is why Lost has struck such a chord with viewers. Maybe there is a touch truth in the story after all. The Lost Series Finale Event begins at 7pm Sunday night on ABC.
