No questions answered—ever!

Truth be embarrassingly told, we are still watching Lost. And, after last week's excellent Desmond/time-continuum episode, we thought we were back on track. Especially exciting was the promise that three long-standing mysteries would be answered on last night's episode. Well, imagine our kind-of-non-surprise when the Bai Ling-addled heap of boring made its way across our high-definition LCD TV. We counted exactly 0 questions answered. What about Jack's Chinese tattoo? you might ask. Usually we wouldn't answer a question with a question, but, as we're talking about Lost, we'll just say, Who gives a shit about Jack's Chinese tattoo? And even when we were told its translation, Jack had to get all "That's not what it means" on us. Come awn.

Alas, 0 Lost mysteries were explained last night. Instead, old characters returned and new characters were added, fueling our suspicion that the endgame of Lost is to provide every actor on the planet with a role. Which, come to think of it, did manage to answer one long-standing mystery: What ever happened to creepy "adult Christina Crawford"?



She's now creepy "Isabel, the island sheriff."

NoNoNo! I refuse to accept anything other than Christina Crawford was actually played by Laura Linney!

Oh, she may not admit it, but we all KNOW it was her...

("Because I am NOT ONE OF YOUR...FAAANS!")

I could swear that's Laura Linney as adult Christina. The voice, the y teeth, the same smile. The pic of the other one in lost is close but I don't think so. With ask the plastic surgery in Hollywood you can never tell what people really look like..... food for thought...
