TELEVISION: Ready for final season of 'Lost'

By Hannah Finlayson

With the fifth season of “Lost,” viewers anticipated — as they always do — having more questions than answers at the end of the season. Season five did not disappoint.

While fans have been able to put some major pieces together, they still wonder how “Lost” producers will be able to tie all the loose ends together. To help you catch up, while we wait for the rest of the answers, here are a few questions that have been answered.

(Ed. note: A word of advice: If you’re not a “Lost” fan, when reading this, you may feel completely ... well, lost.)

What happened in the past to Danielle Rousseau’s team? What did Rousseau mean when she said they got “sick?”

During season five, as the island is time traveling, Jin Kwon discovers the mystery behind Danielle Rousseau. A member of Rousseau’s team, Montand, had his arm ripped off by the smoke monster. He was then taken down to into the temple by the monster. The team has no idea of what to do when Montand states calmly that the monster is gone and he needs help. This should have been a warning signal to the team; Montand’s arm was ripped off his body and he is rationally and calmly asking for help. Everyone, except Rousseau — who is pregnant with Alex at the time — ventures into the temple to try and help Montand. A few months after the Montand-smoke monster incident, Rousseau has killed everyone from her team as they had gone crazy.

Who is Eloise Hawking, the creepy old British woman who for some reason has connections to the island?

She’s Daniel Faraday’s mother (his father is Charles Widmore). Perhaps one of the most confusing characters, Eloise Hawking used to live on the island during World War II. She was there when she and Widmore were young, when the nuclear bomb was buried in the ground.
