LOST: 8 Season Five Revelations

For every ‘answer’ we are given on Lost, there are usually four more questions raised. While this tends to frustrate some fans, I feel as though the writers and producers addressed more than the usual amount of lingering questions in Season 5.

Below is just a sampling of the significant revelations that I enjoyed from this season. By all means, please add your own below!
