So who else thinks that this was the best episode to date?

We learned A LOT!
- The island itself seems to generate an Electro Magnetic charge
--- The button is what releases the charge
------It must be released every 108 minutes to prevent it from building too much
---Desmond is who caused the plane to crash because he didn't press the button
- The Pearl Hatch is a fake
--- The tubes get dumped into a field
- The island contains many pieces of the 7 wonders of the world

--- We saw part of the Colossus, and Stonehenge

Can we assume that Locke, Eko, and Desmond are dead?
How did Charlie get out?
How did Desmond's girlfriend know to look for EM pulses?

Anything you think I missed?

I don't think that the island "itself" generates the charge. Some experimental apparatus (Hanso-made?, Widmore-made?) was generating the EM. One episode showed how it was all sealed off with concrete I think. Although you may be right that it is the island, the storyline seems to indicate that this is a research area.

Stonehenge is not one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The seven wonders are:

The colossus of rhodes had 5 toes, not four. If you look at the picture http://lost.cubit.net/pics/2x23/foot.jpg one of the toes did not break off, it was made that way. The colossus broke apart at the knee, this pic shows a break significantly below the knee.

Now... The "Lost-Isle-of-Atlantis" theory sounds good though (forgot who posted it, sorry). Atlanteans may in fact have had four toes, some of the hindu symbology works (namaste, dharma, yin/yang, etc.), and the geographical location is right  8)
