It seems that ABC is beginning to slowly realize what we were all saying ever since season 3 started. Multiplying mysteries ad nauseum is not a formula for success. It might work initially, but it does not make a good premise for a long running show. So the producers are now are in discussions to determine an end date for the show.
I think this is a great idea. Instead of trailing into obscurity with the mysteries running denser, and viewership going thinner, the show can now concentrate on telling a compelling story instead. Once the date is set, they can plan things out, outline the major events and mysteries and start wrapping loose ends, and cranking up the drama.
If this was up to me, I would give them one more season – two at the most. As much as I like watching Evangeline Lilly being cute on the screen, I think the show needs to regain focus quickly.
What do you think?
