If you watched "Lost" last night, you probably thought, "How are they going to wrap this all up in four hours?"

Well, it seems the producers may have run into this problem too. Work on the series finale was was recently completed. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the finale will run from 9 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. ET, expanding for a half hour from previous reports.

So, rejoice Losties! There's a little more island intrigue on the way come May 23. (By the way, that makes it 5 1/2 hours total of "Lost" programming on that night if you include the follow-up Jimmy Kimmel special).

Does this extra time make you more hopeful about the final episode? Let us know in the comments below. (And while you're at it, share your wish list for the finale here.)

TV recap: Four surprising deaths on 'Lost'

[Editor's Note: You know the drill by now. If you haven't seen this episode of "Lost" yet, DON'T READ ANY FURTHER.]

A time bomb on a submarine - now there's a formula for pulse-pounding TV. Tuesday night's episode of "Lost" brought out lots of raw emotion, from nail-biting tension to heart-wrenching sorrow.

There may not have been too many "answers" per se in this episode, but a lot was made clear: the Man in Black is a villain, Jacob is (almost certainly) a good guy, and... I really hope you're not reading this if you didn't see the episode... Jin, Sun and Sayid (and probably Lapidus) are dead. Rest in peace, indeed. FULL POST

TV recap: Jin and Sun reunite on 'Lost'

[Editor's Note: You know the drill by now. If you haven't seen this episode of "Lost" yet, DON'T READ ANY FURTHER.]

After nearly two seasons, Jin and Sun finally found each other again at the end of Tuesday night's episode of "Lost." Jin told Sun, who regained her (English-speaking) voice, that they would never be separated again.

This being "Lost," those appeared to be famous last words, as Sun and her companions Sawyer, Kate, Hurley, Claire and Lapidus were captured by Widmore's crew (shades of the end of season two).

But in "Lost" style, let's flash back a bit. The previous episode ended with Sun and Hurley arriving in the Man in Black's camp. After Jack and "Smokey" did some much-needed catching up (and Jack's sister Claire told him that he was already with "Smokey" once they started talking), Widmore's right-hand woman, Zoe, showed up the next morning. Zoe then started making threats about her group's ability to bomb the living daylights out of everyone there. In one of many good lines in this episode, Claire, wondering what was going on, asked Hurley, who told her that some people were trying to kill them again. FULL POST

One shocker after another on 'Lost'

Here's a quick example of what was going through my head at various points during Tuesday night's episode of "Lost:"

"Alright, they're off to blow up that plane and - WHOA! What just happened?!?!?"

And later in the episode: "What an interesting encounter between Desmond and Ben and... WHAT IS DESMOND DOING?!?!?!"

And.. scene.

With just a few precious episodes left, "Lost" is cramming in a lot of plot and with it, a lot of plot twists. And yes, some answers (What are the whispers in the forest? Lost souls who can't leave the island - checking that off my list. Thanks, Michael!). FULL POST

TV Recap: Desmond, the key to 'Lost's' secrets

[Editor's Note: You know the drill by now. If you haven't seen this episode of "Lost" yet, DON'T READ ANY FURTHER.]

When Desmond finally showed up on the island at the end of last week's episode, you just knew something major was coming. And thanks to our favorite "constant," the reasons for this season's "flash-sideways," as well as Charles Widmore's ultimate plan, appear to be getting clearer.

We've known for a while that Desmond has a "talent," as Widmore put it. What's easy to forget is where they all started: the electromagnetic pulse at the end of season two. Well, Widmore had to test Desmond to see if he could survive such a pulse again, and that sent us hurtling into the alternate timeline... where Widmore, George, Charlie, Jack, Faraday (or Danny Widmore here), and yes, Penny are all still a part of his life.

Another thing happened at the end of season two: in a flashback, Widmore offered Desmond a job, when in fact Desmond wanted Penny's hand in marriage. In this timeline, Desmond took a job and is now Widmore's right-hand man, never even having met Penny. FULL POST
