No, they're not going to give us answers to mysteries that have not been revealed on the show yet. Rather, "Lost" executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are going to patiently re-explain the mysteries that have been solved in the show up to this point, some of which we may have missed.
According to the press release, "The special will take an in-depth look at the mysteries of both the island and its inhabitants and recap the secrets that have been revealed, as well as those that remain unanswered."
Some of these mysteries they intend to rehash, like how Locke lost the use of his legs, just seem like the producers desperately being like, "Look! We totally deliver! Remember? Remember when we explained that thing about Locke? We're awesome. You tend to forget that. A lot."
To see a list of the "answers" we can expect to re-examine,
Here's a list of things to be re-explained tonight:
- Why a polar bear is on an island in the South Pacific.
- Who the real father of Sun's baby is.
- What caused the crash of Oceanic flight 815.
- Who was in the hatch.
- What happened to the Dharma group.
- How Locke ended up in a wheelchair.
- What Kate did to become one of America's most wanted.
- The identity of the real Sawyer, who conned James Ford's parents leading to their deaths.
The special airs tonight from 10:04 PM-11:00 PM EST on ABC.
