Yeah I just don't see it going there (the alternate timeline). "What happened, happened." They've been talking about "the incident" for a few seasons. I think it's much more likely that the nuclear blast IS the incident, that it actually doesn't destroy the nascent hatch, the island, etc., through some extraordinary mechanism of the island.
I think they may do something where there is an alternate timeline in which the plane never crashes but the Lostaways still have memories of the being on the island or something like that.
Uuuggghhhh. Now that I read that scenario out loud, it sorta sucks. Blech!
All I know is that there have been numerous reports that this season starts with the Lostaways getting off Oceanic 815 in the LA Airport. In fact, the title of the first episode is LAX.
I put some spoiler text over a few words above if folks really, really do not want to know. The stuff I spoiler texted has been reported all over the media and I don't really think it is much of a spoiler anyway. Still, for folks who want to be 100% unaware of everything, including the titles of the episodes, don't mouse over the spoiler text

Actually, Jason, drop a space between the last 2 letters of the title and THAT'S the title of the episode. A subtle difference, but hopefully an important one.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a site I could go to to get a refresher on what was going on at the end of Season 5 and where the characters were and what was going on and what the main storylines were? I watched all of the first 5 seasons in a 2 month period last summer, and I'm having a hard time remembering everything that was going on. Thanks!
Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

That should provide a good refresher.
Also, I just want to add that BostonDevil is dead to me for abandoning her recaps. DEAD!!

I'm less concerned about unresolved questions than I am a clear, definitive conclusion. In fact, the only question I want answered is who the heck was sitting in the chair when Locke and Ben paid a visit to Jacob's Cabin.
I've only seen a few interviews with the producers, but the little bit I've read has given me an uneasy feeling that the show's finale will be open to interpretation. When finales of shows like "Seinfeld" and "The Sopranos" are thrown out, it's probably not going to end well. By "well", I mean with some sense of closure.
Maybe I'm just a mindless sheep, but for five seasons, I have dutifully followed where the writers led me. Like everyone, I've had those "wtf" moments, but I haven't questioned their sense of direction. I've questioned the mythology, but not the methodology.
You've walked me through the exposition, now just tell me how it ends.
Don't make me interpret.
I could care less if Libby is coming back, my real question is Claire coming back. I want to know how she fits in to all of this. Also i want to see her and Jack's relationship now that they know they're siblings.

By the way, the first scene of season 6 is now widely available online. In my opinion, it doesn't actually spoil anything, but others will very strongly disagree with that notion I'm sure.
Lostpedia, it's staggering just how many mysteries there are remaining. And I'm not sure which are essential to the story, which are needed for plausibility and which are just random. I think it's the category in the middle that will cause the most dissatisfaction.
