Regarding the headline...I kid. I kid because I love. I wouldn't be poking Lost in the ribs if I didn't love it so much, but let's be honest with ourselves here: this is a show that needs some serious rib poking. Maybe rib jabbing is more appropriate at this point considering how hit-and-miss the sixth and final season has been.
With our expectations (hopefully) tempered, we can sit back and ride the final waves until we reach the final two-part, three hour episode. Actually, make that three and a half hours, since ABC is giving Lost an extra half hour to tidy things up, solve the lingering mysteries, lock down the hatch and serve some Hurley Bird for supper. The final episode, titled "The End," will air May 23rd from 9:00 to 11:30.
But what can we expect from this finale?
