LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - As "Lost" returns for its highly-anticipated final season on February 2, even the cast aren't sure how the desert-island survival series will end.

And its creators on Tuesday warned that not all loose ends would be tied up.

"Not every question is going to be answered," executive producer Carlton Cuse told TV reporters. "If we tried to answer every question, it would be very pedantic."
