Thank you, writer’s strike, for finally ending. Given that it started pretty much right after I launched this site, I probably should have started a strike blog a few months ago, thereby guaranteeing it ending almost immediately as well. Oh well, hindsight’s 20/20.

lost55.jpgI’m excited most of all that Season 4 of Lost will get a full airing…at least, narratively speaking. It’s going to be 13 episodes, not 16, so it’ll be like an F/X series, only with less Denis Leary.

It remains to be seen just how the removal of roughly 123 minutes of narrative will affect the overall story of Season 4 (41 minute episode x 3 episodes); somehow, I doubt it will matter too much. I heard Episode 15 was going to be Frogurt-centric, anyways, so, no loss there. OK, that’s a huge lie, but it’s a funny one, darnit.

By Season 4’s end, I need to know the following:

  • The identities of the Oceanic 6
  • Why the Boaties want Ben
  • Why those four were chosen by Abaddon
  • Who Abaddon works for
  • Why Ben was photographed off the Island
  • The alliance/allegiance of the Freighters

I think we can answer all of these in nine episodes, don’t you? Be sure to check out my Lost-centric blog over at Zap2It for all the latest as the season progresses, in addition to coming back here for all things Lost and beyond as the television season ramps up production again.

In the meantime, what questions do you want answered by the end of Episode 4.13?

    I want to see all on your list as well as:

    -When was Ben photographed off the Island?

    -What draws the Oceanic 6 back to the Island?

    -How do the Oceanic 6 get back to the Island?
    (this is probably a Season 5 question)

    -A Libby flashback

    -A Rousseau flashback
