I mean the scene where For those still thinking the central mystery will be revealed, here is what Lindelof has stated, "The show is about living in a world where this thing happened, but there is no resolution. It doesn't mean that many of the characters on the show are not looking for that answer, or starting to adopt religions and belief systems that they feel are correct. But the idea that the show is going to answer that question for the audience is just — it's not going to happen,"
