I admit: I thought the season finale of “Lost” was a bit anti-climactic. Of course, I must also admit that I was watching it online as it played in the background while I was focusing on other work on my computer. This caused me not to engage with the episode with all the faculties that it deserved. My dear “long lost” friend Mark Traphagen passed this article along to me that changed the way I look at the entire show. It really is quite incredible and is worth the read for anyone who at least saw the finale. Though beware: If you haven’t seen the finale yet, don’t read this. It is full of plenty of spoilers. Thanks Mark.
