Get Lost Sunday, or you'll be lost Monday

Will the Man in Black’s name ever be revealed?

Will Walt will make an appearance in the finale?

Is Richard, one of the most special characters in the whole series, actually dead?

[image-1]If you’re one of the “others” who doesn’t know their head from their Arzt when it comes to Lost, you’ve only got a few more days to get a crash course on the significance of constants and variables, Black Rock and the black smoke, and who the hell Jeremy Bentham, Jim LaFleur and Henry Gale really are. Your best bet will be to watch the two-hour recap that begins at 7 p.m. on Sunday.[image-2][image-2]

So, Losties, the end is finally upon us, and as Jacob told us last season, “It only ends once.” Will the Light of the island be protected or will the cork be removed? What’s going to happen at the concert in the Sideways world, and how the heck do the two stories connect?

Give your DVR a rest and hit the couch for the 5-and-a-half hour finale event, starting Sun. at 7 p.m. on ABC. Don't miss it, or you'll be out of the loop Monday morning around the office.

What do you think? Will the answers be as underwhelming as some recently revealed? And will you be hosting or attending a LOST party? If so, we want to hear about it!

It feels appropriate that the culmination of Lost will be revealed on a Sunday. After all, the show we’ve been watching religiously since 2004 has spent this season setting us up for Desmond to be the Christ-like figure that will save the Losties (in case you haven’t been paying attention). Instead of airing the finale on a Tuesday night, Lost's regular time slot, ABC decided to place the finale event (and it certainly will be an event) on Sunday in order to give the survivors of Oceanic 815 the most airtime possible.

The final episode of this water-cooler show, appropriately entitled “The End,” has been upgraded to a total of 2-and-a-half hours. The finales of each of the previous seasons were a paltry two hours in comparison. Hopefully this will mean more episode rather than just more commercials. While the ads won’t command absolute top dollar, this still may be the biggest advertising Sunday of the year aside from the Super Bowl.

Speaking of the Super Bowl, one of the most fun parts in watching the game are making prop bets. With that in mind, some prop bets certainly would make your Lost party even more intriguing. There are plenty to choose from, but here's a few to get you started:
