Lost- Burning Questions, Answered and Unanswered

It's 3 weeks late, but here you go! Let's take a look back at this season, and some of my "Top 3 Questions I want Answered" as well as many questions that remain unanswered.

1). Where the hell are Rose and Bernard- (most popular by far) Sawyer could not find Rose and Bernard after joining Dharma.(I actually don't think he tried to much). Well, Rose and Bernard were "retired" in the middle of jungle, along with Vincent. They plan to stay there till they die, quite possibly becoming Adam and Eve in the caves. All the other survivors are presumed to be dead by unknown forces.

2). What happened the night before they went back?- Jack and Sun went to Eloise Hawking and found out how to get back to the Island. They got tickets for a excirsion to Guam where they would cross into a window that would transport them back to the Island. Kate gave Aaron back to his grandma and told her she was going to find Claire. (Who will return for Season 6!) Hurley was in jail but was released, where he found Jacob in a taxi who gave him a guitar and told him to get on the plane to the Island. Sayid was arrested and brought back to Guam where he was to pay for Widmore's people he killed. Illana arrested him.

3). Where are the Oceaninc 6?- (After Ajiria landed) Jack, Kate and Hurley were in the jungle, but then joined Dharma where things got bad. Sayid was believed to be a Hostile and wss captured. Sun was in the present day along with the Ajiria people, Lapidus, Ben, and a preumably alive Locke. We're not sure why Sun and the rest of them are in the present and why the others are in th 70s.

4). Why did Ben kill Locke? How did locke come back to life?- After failing to get everyone back to the Island, Locke was going to kill himself. However, Ben stopped him, got info out of him, and killed him. Locke was brought on the Ajiria plane and was given Christian's shoes. But, Locke came back to life after the crash. However. Locke's body was taken over by Jacob's nemesis to kill him. We're still not sure on the details why or how it was done. Meanwhile, the real Locke is dead.

5). Is little Ben really dead?- No. He escaped with Sayid and possibly set that Dharma van on fire. Even though he was shot by Sayid, he was brought to be healed by the Others in the Temple. By doing this, he lost his innocence and would become the Ben we knew in the present.

6). What is inside the Temple?- The Temple is where Richard brought Ben to be healed. This is also the place where Jughead was kept. Inside the Temple is believed to be where the smoke monster resides. The Temple connects right to Ben's house, so it's easy for him to summon the monster. Still, there are many unanswered questions regarding the Temple.

7). Is Alex really dead or can ghosts kill people?- Alex is dead. The smoke monster could have appeared to Ben in the form of Alex. Or, Jacob's nemesis could have taken that form as well as John Locke's form to make sure he is able to kill Jacob. We are not certain.

8). Where was Daniel, why did he leave, and why did he come back?- Daniel was doing research off the Island. After he heard that Jack and the rest were back, he came back to warn them that they could die. He told them that he might be able to stop their plane from crashing which would cause their lives to be "normal". He went to his mother Eloise, who was an other and in a relationship with Charles Widmore, but she shot him by mistake. Her action would haunt her the rest of her life and she knew that she was going to kill her son.

9). Why would Locke want to kill Jacob?- That's not Locke. The reall John Locke is still dead, while the imposter is actually Jacob's nemesis who has wanted to kill Jacob for a very long time...

Well, that'a pretty much it. This is going to be my last official post in Season 5. For the next few weeks I will be sharing some of my Lost theories with you all until I finish watching Season 1 on DVD. Until then, here's questions I NEED to be answered:

1). When Christian said that they had a long journey to reunite everyone, what did he mean?
2). What is Ben planning?
3). What do the survivors of Ajira have to do with the plot?
4). Is Alex really dead, or are ghosts able to kill people?
5). Will we ever see Ji-Yeon again?
6). What's going to happen to the Sawyer and the gang?
7). Who is Richard Alpert
8). Does the Incident really happen?
9). Why did Richard say he saw all of the Losties die, and if he's telling the truth, why didn't he and Ben and the rest of the Others die?
10). What was the white flash, and why were the letter black?
11). What is the deal between Jacob and his nemesis?
12). Where is this all going???

General Hospital Weekly Roundup: Week of June 7

Wanna know something shocking? We're half way into June, and Luke is still in Port Charles. If you can travel back to September, or I think even October, Luke came back to Port Charles after hearing is daughter was in Shady Brooke for, I don't know, 2 months? So is he leaving late this year?

You know, it's always sad to see Luke go. I wonder what would happen to the Ethan storyline without Luke.

But why should we worry about that now? Let's focus on something else: the murder mystery of the Mayor's mistress. Apparently, the writers of GH must have been really into the Eliot Spitzer scandal, because yet another autority figure in NY has sex issuses. Except this time, the corrupted city of Port Charles is turning their backs on it to focus on other things.

Like the baby problems. Carly's baby is fine, thank God. Claudia's is too, for now. Sonny is now fighting with her about whether he's the father or if Ric is. Hey, when's Ric supposed to leave again? Not soon enough, if you ask me.

Or maybe the residents of Port Charles are too focused on the teen problems. It seemls like slutty Kristina spends her time prancing around in her underwear for grown men or smoking pot (from her mom?:D). Then you have Micheal who enjoys sneaking out and throwing things. How they hell did they let him out of the hospital? I would have put him in Shady Brooke till things stop. I know Carly really loves him, but something needs to be done. Until then, I suggest hitting him over the head so he has amnesia and starts all over again in a nice, polite manner.

Well, I for one am interested in the "murder mystery". It's setting a lot of storylines in motion. Including but not limited too: The downward spiral of Matt after his lawsuit, investagating the actual cause of death of the mistress, plus maybe even a new mayor of Port Charles. Will Luke once again become mayor?
What a town.

How about this Kate story. Boring. How come she didn't see Micheal yet. She was there when the accident happened. Does she not care anymore? I used to really like Kate. It's such a shame the writers ruined her. Not to mention Olivia. What a waste. When she told Sonny she had to tell him something, I thought it was about Dante. Nope, it was about Claudia. What a hypocrtical bitch.

Back to the Ethan story- Rebecca revealed to everyone that she was Emily's twin. What she kept secret was that she is no in cahoots with evil Ethan to steal money from people. And where does Helena tie into this?

So many questions on GH right now. Let's hope GH gets really goo over the summer, especially with the lack of Nightshift. LEt's hope it does!

Pushing Daisies- We Will Miss You

This angers me. Wipeout, I Survived A Japanese Game Show, Scrubs. What do all these shows have in common? They suck, but are still on TV.

ABC, home to such complicated, well written shows as LOST, has put these mediocre, and sometimes down-right horrible shows on their channel. ABC even had the audacity to put 2 of these shows, Scrubs and Wipeout, on during Pushing Daises' timeslot.

Why am I so mad? Pushing Daisies was a great show. Mystery, comedy, romance, and those vibrant colors all made for a great hour of television. It's a show unlike any other in a world where there are 700 CSIs.

Well, that's enough ranting.

The facts were these: Last nght's episode entitled "Kerplunk" was a great one, and illustrated all the character growths throughout this short lived series. Aunts Lilly and Vivian were finally swimming in front of people and were actually happy, however short lived it was. Because Vivian learned the truth about Lily and that Chuck was her daughter. After a long fight, who should show up at the door: Ned and a very much alive Chuck.

Meanwhile, over the Dim Sum restaurant, Emerson's daughter showed up and finally reunited with the comic book knitting private investagator.

And, Olive was able to fall in love and open up a Macoroni and Cheese restaurant.

Will we ever know the reaction in all thses situations? Probably not. Remember, this was not supposed to be a series finale, but a season finale with a cliff hanger. The people in charge were able to tweak it a little bit to give the show a proper, if not sad, ending for the millions of fans.

Will there be a movie? Will another channel pick it up? I have no idea, but remember that I will post information here as it comes. But for now, let's remember the show foundly. Buy the DVDs and watch them. Live, Love, and Laugh as the characters of Pushing Daisies did. Who knows? Maybe this is not the end.

Remember what the narrator said- The story didn't end with an end. It started with one.
