I daren’t visit any sites about Lost, or read any reports of season 4 lest it ruins the surprises. Therefore, the conjecture I am about to make has probably already been considered on a million fan sites. However, the following thought occurred to me…

During the final episode of season 3, the final reveal is that we have been watching flash-forwards (not flash-backs) of Jack. As it is now almost impossible for the series creators to explain in any satisfactory way just WHAT ON EARTH IS GOING ON it seems the only solution I can envisage is this…

For the next three seasons of Lost (it has already been announced the show will finish at season 6) we will get flash forwards in each episode rather than flash-backs. We will remain as clueless what is going on then as now as we all slowly struggle to piece some semblance of sense from the proceedings. To some that will sound depressing and futile but I can’t wait. If the next 3 seasons are as good as seasons 1 and 3 (we all know season 2 was a little ropey, right?) then I couldn’t give a hoot. Roll on season 4!
