Lost - Season 2 Episode 24 ("Live Together, Die Alone" part 2)

And so ends season 2.  It comes as no surprise that more questions were raised than were answered.

  • So this means that Desmond's love knows about the experiments and has had people monitoring for signs of it so she can find him?  Is she working in secret?  Her and her father are obviously linked to the Widmore Industries that is somehow connected to the experiments and/or Dharma.
  • What really happened after the key was turned?  Was it really a massive EMP discharge (like a bomb)?  Maybe even the launch of the "hatch" into the the air or space?  Surely if the hatch can survive some dynamite exploding, it can survive an EMP blast.
  • Since we've see her in contact with both Hurley and Desmond before crashing on the island, is it safe to assume Libby is in on the experiments too?  Seems too coincidental to me, but the actress is apparently signed up for other series this fall so I'm curious how active a role she will have in flashbacks next season to reveal the mystery.
  • Am I the only one thinking that Charlie is acting strangely in the last scene, possibly affected by "the sickness" or maybe the explosions?  Is "the sickness" itself really a ruse?  Danielle claims to have killed her entire crew because of it.  Speaking of which, where has she been lately and what is her connection to things?
  • What awaits Michael and Walt at precisely 325 degrees on the compass?  If The Others know how to get off the island, why haven't they done so already?  Could they have been responsible for bringing Desmond to the island after he blacked out?
  • Was The Pearl just a reverse-psychology experiment by Dharma, or is there more of the story we have yet to learn?  If John, Eko, and Desmond are still alive, will they find out about the pile of notes and read through them to find out more about the history of the island, and more importantly is there anything important buried (pardon the pun) in the notes?
  • The fake "Henry Gale" turns out to be the leader of The Others that is to be feared, the same one that he was referring to during his capture.  What makes The Others think that they are the good guys, and who then are the bad guys?

Eek, I think my head is going to explode.  It's going to be a long summer, and I'm sure I'll be watching both seasons over again at least once to pick up clues.  What a trip.
