I was disappointed with how the FST wrapped up, but not going to let it ruin my feelings on the series as a whole. The series is essentially about the events of the other 5 ½ seasons. The FST was basically nothing more than the happy ending epilogue that the characters were rewarded with for handling their issues during the events of the actual show.

Smokey and the electromagnetic energy are both manifestations of some part of that source. If either one of them were to escape the confines of the island the entire world would be at risk. IIRC Smokey used Ecko's dead brother to attempt to convince not to hit the button. We now know why he was trying to release that energy.
The Dharma initiative created the first situation, so they assumed the original role of guardian. They created the Swan and kept watch over it until as long as they were able. Eventually the responsibilities were passed alon…Read more >
