I really hope everything does end up tied up, but I have my doubts. I kind of lost faith in JJ Abrams after Alias. It started out so good, and I watched it till the end, but it left a lot to be desired. So many questions at the end were still unanswered. And I had the feeling when watching the last season that they were in a hurry to tie things up and weren't doing the best job of it. "Lost" is creating questions way faster than it answers them. I have a feeling that the end might be a bit anti-climactic. My interest has been slowly dwindling, and I definitely see why they lost (no pun intended) half their viewers from the 1st to 2nd season. Frankly, drooling over Sawyer is the only reason I keep watching.
