Finally! We get to see Locke again.

Next week is the 2 hour finale right?

Correct, next week is indeed the 2 hour season finale.

Agree it's about damn time Locke returns.

I know the season is winding down, but hopefully next season they create an episode that focuses on the backstory of Richard. I find him to be a very interesting character.

I think it was just dumb luck that Nestor Carbonell's show Caine was canned last year and he was able to return to the show.

This season has flown by. Wow, can't believe next week is already the finale. One season left right?

Unsurprisingly, sources are pretty tight lipped about tonight, so I'll list some other spoilers.

As Mnementh stated, tonight's focus is on
Spoiler:
Richard


Faraday's final fate?
Spoiler:
DEAD


Who is NOT dying this season?
Spoiler:
Jack or Sayid


Rose and Bernard?
Spoiler:
Ausseilo reports we will find out


Jin and Sun?
Spoiler:
Kristen says at earliest the season finale, if not next season


And the big one about next week (very vague)
Spoiler:
What happens is such a game-changer that you'll wonder how they can continue the same show afterwards (per Aussiello)

I think the same thing was said last year when they left the island.
This could mean that (next week) they
Spoiler:
do change history to where they never crashed on the island...and the final season goes from there.


Here's the synopsis for the finale:
Spoiler:
"Jack's decision to put a plan in action in order to set things right on the island is met with some strong resistance by those close to him. Locke assigns Ben a difficult task."

My first thoughts were that Locke is the one that orders Ben to kill everyone (The Purge). But then Locke would have to get to past for this scenario to hold true.


One more spoiler about the finale
Spoiler:
the cast list two child actors playing young Kate and young Sawyer. So the question is, are they in a flashback or are Kate and Sawyer now existing alongside them...my head hurts

You guys and your spoilers ....

Anyone know if they are going to have any commercial clips this week or not?

Yes, they are going to have an exclusive clip from the newly released science fiction film that is taking America by storm....Star Wars. Unlike any film you've ever seen before. They also might show a trailer for some movie about UFO's called Close Encounters of the Third Kind (what a strange title).

I was talking about the "what did you see" ads from last week.

Re: Lost -- "Follow the Leader" -- 5/6/09

Why the heck would anyone want to read those spoilers? What joy does one possibly get from knowing what's going to happen before it actually happens? Isn't the fun of shows like Lost about being shocked and awed every week?

Nobody knows what is going to happen. The spoilers are minor details that only lead to more speculation. We put spoilers on what is talked about in the synopsis and the previews, because some people would rather not know. There are people that like to discuss these tiny hints and there are people that
Spoiler:
don't


But the real question is, why would you open a thread for an episode you haven't yet watched? Everyone here is thoughtful enough to spoilerize things, but if I were you I wouldn't want to take the chance.

Because a lot of us (who have read no spoilers) like to speculate on what might happen. We did so quite a bit in the early years of the show, but the last year or so it's basically just been a spoiler-fest before airing.

But we've been over this many times, so no use in complaining anymore.

I'll just give (the very under-utilized, lately) can't wait!

Now, what doesn't make sense is that supposedly they all die in the purge which happens years after 1977 and after all of the Losties are either exiled or on the run.

Sweet Jesus I love this episode.

I keep waiting for the other shoe though - every time John thinks he's on top of things....turns out he's wrong. Is he finally going to break the streak?
