As we creep closer to the series finale of Lost, things are starting to fall into place. With last week’s episode, “The Candidate,” bringing about the end of Jin and Sun Kwan, one more potential candidate was scratched off the list of possible Jacob replacements.

In tonight’s episode, “Across The Sea,” we get an episode full of answers as Jacob and the man in black take center stage – offering a glimpse at the beginning of their relationship as well as find out how things came to be so nasty between them.

As a fan of Lost, I have to say that it is probably the best episode of the season. Not only because it is filled with answers, but because we are finally able to see the incredible back-story of the island’s most iconic inhabitants.

We have three Lost spoiler posts that each provide information about what’s to occur further on in the season:

Keeping this in mind, please limit this discussion to events that occur in “Across The Sea.”

If you’re posting comments here, assume that anyone in the conversation has seen the episode – if you haven’t seen the episode, I would recommend you don’t read these comments here until you have. You’ve been warned.

Discuss away!
