When it comes to the final season of Lost, there’s nothing that’s going to separate fans from their televisions. Unless, of course, ABC decides to take a week off. While the brief hiatus allowed us to re-watch one of the best episodes of the year, “Ab Aeterno,” there’s no doubt about what everyone really wants – new episodes providing more answers.

Tonight, we not only get a new episode with “The Candidate,” but contained within were also some of most jaw-dropping moments of the season.

If you’ve read our round-up of what was going to happen in “The Candidate,” you were tipped off about what was going to happen, but knowing what’s going to happen and seeing it as it happens are two completely different things.

We have three Lost spoilers 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 “The Candidate.”

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!
