I have a prediction re: tonight’s finale. Normally I don’t engage in a lot of theorizing here on A&NY; I mostly just recap and help synthesize what we’ve seen episode to episode. But here, at the eleventh hour, I have a thought, or perhaps a hope, that I just can’t shake. So I’m going to post it here.
I stay away from spoilers like the plague; I even summon the willpower to resist watching the video clip previews ABC releases the day before an episode airs. (This after the now infamous “Mr. Eko Debacle” as it’s called around the Bybee house, where Jason read spoilers prior to a certain Nigerian druglord-turned-priest’s death at the hands of Smokey in Season 3, ruining the emotional weight of such a moment.) Anyway, I avoid spoilers like crazy, so I’m not really basing this on anything but my own conjecture.
Also, since I know some of you like your LOST spoiler-free as well, I’ll respect your desires by posting the theory in the comments section. Again, it’s not a spoiler. But it’s just a thought that I’ve had as I’ve reflecting on the show. Feel free to let me know what you think.
