This week Scott and Elton continue their look over 'The End'.

Has their opinion changed in the short time since the airing?  Have any new thoughts graced our hosts?  These questions on top of Eltons thoughts on Eloise combine for a great post-LOST episode.

Well here it is (after a few tech issues).  The final episode of LOST, and what an episode!

This week Elton & Scott rethink 'The End'.  Why are some people feeling let down? was it a great ending? what did we expect and how will this open our eyes to older episodes, not forgetting the whole of season 6?

This won't be the last time we evaluate 'The End', there's far too much to go over so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a follow up show very soon.

This week the guys rethink "What They Died For" and make some predictions about the series finale. Scott questions the plot significance (not entertainment value!) of the

Dharma season and other seemingly important-at-the-time mysteries, while Elton wonders if we have to see Juliet and Sawyer together in a coffee shop and if we should even want to. Who will be left on the island when it's all over? Join us as we discuss all this and more.

Enjoy the podcast and enjoy the final episode of LOST. We'll be back after the finale and for many weeks thereafter.

Some people loved "Across the Sea", some hated it, some are in between. Whatever your stance is, you're sure to enjoy Scott and Elton's rethinking of the episode.

This week the guys present a reaction to the episode and a wondering of what it all may mean from this point forward. In this show you'll hear Scott look back for seeds of what was revealed in this episode, Elton wonder if "Mother" is a "Mother Nature" figure, and much more.

References are made to this article ( http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/whats-alan-watching/posts/exclusive-interview-lost-producers-damon-lindelof-and-carlton-cuse-talk-across-the-sea# ) which contains no spoilers but does declare that two specific questions will NOT be answered in the shows final 3.5 hours.

Enjoy the podcast and enjoy the final episodes of LOST.  We'll be back before the finale if we can make it work out, but if not we'll be here right after.

We hope to make it to the end spoiler-free. Please keep that in mind when tweeting, emailing, or posting on our site.

Join Scott and Elton as they look back at and rethink the latest episode of LOST -The Candidate.

With many of their original theories no longer applicable after last week's episode, the guys start looking back for clues they may have missed in earlier episodes and wonder what other "cons" might in play. Why was so much time spent on the Kwons? Will Ben be a pivotal player inthe final 4.5 hours? Who planted the explosives on the plane? Will Miles survive to the finale? Could a reveal about Anthony Cooper's past be the push Locke needs to let go? What did Widmore mean when he said that if John Locke wasn't on the island the wrong side will win?

Scott and Elton discuss these topics and much more in this Spoiler-Free (as they all are) episode.

We hope to make it through the rest of Season 6 spoiler-free. Please keep that in mind when tweeting, emailing, or posting on this site.

This week Scott and Elton are pleased to offer you a look over the latest episode of Lost - The Desmond-centric ‘Happily Ever After’.

With this turning point of the season the guys try to work out what the 'sideways' world has to offer to our Losties, does Eloise Widmore know more than she's letting on? and who, given the choice, would stay and who would go.  Confused? We know how you feel.

Hello, listeners. This is NOT a standard ReThinking LOST episode. It DOES make some casual references to the LOST episode which aired in the US the week of March 23, 2010 - nothing major, but we promised you we'd be 100% spoiler-free so if you haven't seen it yet, you should probably wait to listen just to be safe.

In this special bonus episode, we take a minute to discuss some of the thoughts you've emailed and tweeted to us. And... and... we announce a ReThinking LOST contest.

Check back in a day or so for our regular ReThinking of the March 23rd episode.

Thanks for listening, and please do continue to reach out to us.

Onto episode 3 of season 6 What Kate Does.

In this edition Scott and Elton run through the many scenes of this Kate-centric episode, dive into the Temple to find out what Dogan was doing to Sayid, why don't the Temple Others like Miles and, in the flash-sideways, we get to see a familiar face in hospital.

Season 6 has begun, and we are pleased to offer you our study of the first two hours - LA X, parts 1 and part 2.

We make some guesses about what might lie ahead, but this episode (as they all are) is Spoiler-Free in terms of the remainder of the season, so listen without worry.

In this episode of ReThinking LOST, Scott and Elton react to and try to interpret what we all saw in the series premier. Scott busts out a new theory on what "the loophole" used to by the dark-shirted man really was and Elton wonders if there are some references to what went on in the temple in the hatch mural.
