Happy finale day, everyone. I'll be writing 'answer' posts as twins to my previous 'questions' post from time to time in the following weeks. I'm sure I'll also have some thoughts about the finale itself that I'll want to write about here. Thanks to all who have read these posts, and please consider yourself welcome to come back and provide your own input on the answers we'll be left with after tonight.
In conclusion, here are--for me--the big, unresolved questions I'd like to see addressed in the finale.
'THE END' DOSSIER: QUESTIONS:
1. How has Ms. Hawking always known what's going to happen? What has been her motivation for being such a cryptic and cruel guide to Des, Faraday, and others?
2. What happens if the Man in Black leaves the Island? Plenty of characters have alluded to ominous consequences...Isabella (via Hurley): "We all will go to hell"; Widmore: "everything you know will simply cease to exist"; Ms. Hawking: "We are all dead!"
3. What is the Sideways? How is it connected to the Jughead detonation?
4. What does Desmond know, that has guided his actions in both realities since 'Happily ever after'?
