So very excited. Tonight's episode, The Shape of Things to Come, notably takes it's name from H.G. Wells' novel of the future. Might we see some Desmond-y predictive goodness tonight? I hope so!
Incidentally the NY Times today has a good spoiler-free article on the show and how setting an end-date changed everything.
I guess the big question going into tonight that I hope is answered right away is whether or not Danielle is still alive. We still need a flashback from her so I'm hoping for the best. And speaking of flashbacks, here's what I'm hoping for as far as the rest of the season goes (and remember that the finale is a three-parter):
1. A Ben flashback
2. Another Jack flashforward
3. A full freighter person flashback (preferably Charlotte)
4. A Richard/Alex/Danielle flashback
I imagine I could find out just what to expect on the spoiler sites, but I really want to be surprised. We definitely need another Ben flashback and it would be nice to get some perspective on what all the other Others have been doing while all this has been on. Richard can certainly provide that. Furthermore, if Danielle is really dead, either Ben or Richard will have to provide perspective on what happened when Alex was taken.
Enough speculation! I can't wait for tonight! :)
