I was surprised, shocked even, when the voiceover said there were only 5 more episodes left in this season of Lost. Mainly because, for the life of me, I can't figure out what the thrust of this season has been. Usually by the time you're 4 episodes away from the season finale, you're well into whatever major story arc has been building throughout the year. In fact, you should be hurtling toward the climax like a runaway train. Not, you know, playing ping-pong.

Can anyone tell me what of any major or lasting import has happened this season? It really feels like they've just been spinning their wheels. The whole season has been about nothing.
