Re: Desmond

Desmond is a very special character on LOST. Usually when minor characters make their appearance, have their own episode, etc. it's dull. Ok, it may not be dull, but the LOST writers have always made interesting use of Desmond in their story-telling. When it came to the Swan station, the flash-forwa...
