I've all but given up up them addressing the Walt issue. I'm just hoping for some explanation about how the island could jump through time, and why this was actually a thing. And if it turns out that stupid episode with Jack's tattoo and Bai Ling was actually important, I will roll a Lock for Cataclysm, because clearly nothing is sacred anymore.

Yes. This.At this point, the only thing I want answered is this:Who the HELL is the Man in Black?

Will it be an undead lock(e)?

Iirdan, the man in black is Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith. They fight aliens in New York and protect you and I from things that we cannot comprehend. Like the fact that the island is a time-traveling shark from the sun. And that the smoke monster really just needs a hug. And remember that polar bear? It was eating giant space lice off the shark-island.

@iridian The MIB identity should be revealed next week. It's supposed to be a Jacob/MIB flashback episode.And honestly i would roll a mage if it meant i could get some crunchy caramel coated nugetty LOST goodness with every week's article.

Since season one we have been waiting for answers, I think ive become immune and along for the ride now. Whilst it seemed Lost had no direction (Season 3 was the weakest) it always delivered the best storylines (Kate non-inclusive).The only question I want Lost to answer is what the hell am I going to watch when its over.FlashForward is disappointing but V is looking promising.

I gave up on Lost during season 3 - it lost its sense of direction and became overcomplicated with multiple conflicting storylines which (as it now seems) didnt appear to be resolvable.For those wondering what to watch next, i'd highly recommend going back to the 2 shows without which there would be no lost (or 24, or heroes or any show with a long continuing story arc) - The Prisoner (the original, not the new remake) and Twin Peaks.The Prisoner is a beguiling tale of cold war intrigue used as a metaphor for the state of the individual in modern culture (As it was in the 60s) and is as relevant today as it was then. Each episode is semi-self contained, but as a whole charts the character development (more as a revealing of his character than his character changing). It also contains some of the most famous quotes of TV History - "I am not a number; I am a free man!"OT - I love my frost mage for Heroics and AoE Trash (and easier bosses where dps requirements are not so strict anymore). With Nibelung its an AoE machine once you get 4+ of the valkyr up. I dont think its as uncompetitve as the original article stated (which was biased by various factors i cba to get into) but i wouldnt use it on Sindy, Putri, BQL or LK where performance still really matters

Twin Peaks? Seriously? It had the same problem of randomly added cruft (after the first season) because it seemed a 'neat' twist to the creator, making an ultimately unresolvable mess. It's conceivable Lynch could've pulled it off, but I doubt it. The show's big strength was it's characters, not the story. And David Duchovny in drag.As for the continual story popularizing thing, I put Babylon 5 there. Yes, Twin Peaks was older, but by the time B5 ended season-long arcs were all over the place, while they were relatively rare beforehand. To my mind giving that credit to Twin Peaks is like giving it to Commander Cody.

" Why was it such a big deal that Aaron not be "raised by another?" "I assumed they addressed that in a roundabout way - after Kate took Aaron off the island, Claire went over to evil Locke's side. I'm assuming losing Claire as a 'candidate' to the evil Locke was why it was so important.
