If you mean time-traveling bunnies, then yes

Ah, another "Lost" season careens to a close.

Although I liked the episode, it didn't really do much for me. This was just connecting the dots - if you looked at the picture, you could see it without the lines.

Still, lots of good small moments, notably Sayid kicking Keamy's butt and Ben putting tinfoil into the island microwave. Questions, oh my we still have questions. What happened to Faraday and the spare Losties? Is Jin dead? What's Sun's move - does she know what Ben did to Keamy? The whole Jeremy Bentham thing is obviously going to require some 'splaining. Does Walt have to go back with the rest of them? What about Desmond? I don't think he'll want to make the trip.

And, on a bigger plot level, what's been happening on the island while the Oceanic 6 were gradually going nuts on the mainland? Three years is a long time. Who are the bad guys? What's everyone's motivation? Where and when did the island move to?

It's interesting and refreshing that when next season finally arrives, we'll go into it with a better understanding of where we are, but no idea at all about where we're going. It's like the plot has been completely reset. That may not end up being a good thing, but "Lost" has shown me enough this season that I'll give it a pretty long leash.

thought it was a fantastic finale! not the "GOTCHA" moment of last year...but still , mucho good! as you pointed out lots of plot advancements and still lots of questions--and because of the finite nature of the show(we know the end date) the writing is crisp and the story is developing at a good pace (you still must have mysteries piled upon mythology..that is the essence of LOST) i might point out that while sayid put up a great took
richard alpert's gun to end the combat! still in the top tier of TV--along with battlestar and few others..
