I would love it if they could carry it out and have it all tie up into a neat little bow at the end with 85-90 percent of the questions answered in the end. Although I accepted the writers ending for LOST I never felt completely satisfied because there were too many questions they left unanswered. I hope they don’t do that here.
This has been my BIGGEST concern for OUAT. I absolutely loved LOST and followed it closely. But at the finale, I felt disappointed and honestly like I had wasted my time watching a show that never answered so many questions.So when I fell in love with this show, it was obviously a concern that large questions wouldn’t be answered and I would again feel cheated from the show. I hope this is not the case, and they perhaps learned from LOST.
As for where the finale is going for the season, I agree with many others in saying the full arc will be James kissing Snow in the glass coffin and awakening her. It makes perfect sense. The second season can focus on the time between the marriage and the curse (we know at least 9 months, but why not more?) Or it could focus on James getting his kingdom back. I feel something must happen to the king – as we know neither Regina or James’ father will allow either of our storybook favorites to rule a kingdom without a fight.
