Unanswered LOST Questions from (INTERESTING)

As I said the other day, I'm not going to try and do a recap of the LOST Finale or the series as a whole because there is just too much going on and I'm still trying to put it all together.  I was happy with how they wrapped up the series but there are a lot of LOST nerds out there that are pissed that they didn't answer every single question.  Relax people.  It's not that serious. 

I did find an article on some random blog that does a pretty good job of summarizing the finale. Check it out when you have a few minutes:

I'm still not going to do a recap, but this video above got me thinking.  In my opinion, you're an ass if you think they were going to answer everything because they would need another 3-5 seasons just to make sense of all of the questions that are still lingering.  I think a lot of these things were made up a long the way and the writers didn't know how to connect them in the end so they just left them hang out there and now it is working to their benefit because people will continue to talk about LOST even when it's long gone.

Also, most of the answers to these questions don't really help the story evolve much because they just weren't that important or it was more interesting to let the viewers make up their own opinions.  I think this strategy will help keep LOST popular for years to come just like a good movie that has a ton of questions in the end.  Think Donnie Darko and other crazy movies that make you think.  Do you like the movie any less because you were a little confused at the end?  Hell no!  That shit was awesome!

The writers of LOST always said they knew how they would end the series but they didn't know exactly how they were going to get there past the first pilot episode.  That should tell you right there that at some point they were just throwing stuff against the wall and seeing what sticks.   You can't be mad at them if you were still entertained.  Isn't that the whole point?  

A few things that possibly prove they made things up as they went were the following. Supposedly, Mr. Eko (aka Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) was supposed to be in the series for much longer but he asked to be written off because of a desire to return home to London after the passing of his parents. I heard a rumor that he actually had off screen conflicts with Locke (aka Terry O'Quinn) and wanted to be killed off because of it.  He also passed on showing up in the finale which sounds like he was still holding a grudge and/or there actually was something to that story.  He played a really big role in the first few seasons so it would have made sense for him to show up in the church.  I don't know if that's true but take it for what it's worth. 

Another "fact" that I found interesting was in regards to Ben who originally appeared as Henry Gale.  The LOST writers only had him scheduled for 3 episodes but when he became popular as a polarizing villain, they decided to leave him in.  Imagine LOST without Ben wreaking havoc all over the island?  It would be a very different series.  
Anyway, the above "Unanswered LOST Questions" video from was meant to be funny in a pissed off kind of way but they actually brought up a lot of things that I totally forgot about.  Many people in the Comments Section have stated that a lot of these questions were answered subtly, if not directly but I can't say I knew more than a handful. I'm sure most regular LOST fans would feel the same.  

Someone took the time to give some quick answers but I'm not sure how accurate it is or how much of it is opinion.  You will have to pause the video each time there is a question and keep track of what number you are on which might drive you crazy since there are 89 of them but it's still interesting, nonetheless.
