“The Fork in the Outlet.”
That’s the quirky code name producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have bestowed upon their super-secret season finale of “Lost.” And, of course, curious fans are already on the case _ frantically trying to de-code it and give it some kind of literal meaning.

I prefer to think it simply refers to the level of shock we’re going to feel while watching the episode. You know: Stick a utensil in an electrical socket and you get a hefty jolt.

And isn’t that the way we like it? After bonding for months with our favorite shows, we crave surprising, even shocking, developments in our season-enders. We want stunning cliff-hangers, emotional send-offs and electrifying triumphs. Basically, we want to feel all tingly.

With that in mind, here’s a list of finales we’re anticipating as May sweeps unfolds (Warning: Some spoilers ahead):

_” Scrubs” (May 6, ABC): Count ‘em _ more than 50 past guest stars return as J.D. (Zach Braff) bids farewell to Sacred Heart. But before departing, he hopes to score a hug from Dr. Cox and learn the Janitor’s real name. It also could be the end of the line for this oddball sitcom.

_” Lost ” (May 13, ABC): Mind-blowing, jaw-dropping finales are a matter of habit with this creepy series, and so we’re expecting nothing less. Word is we’ll finally meet Jacob, the island’s spiritual leader, and there will be at least one major death. Of course, on “Lost,” dead doesn’t necessarily mean dead-and-gone.

_” Bones ” (May 14, Fox): The season-ender revolves around a murder at a nightclub. But the real news is that, after four seasons of teasing us, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) finally hop in the sack. Can their relationship survive?

_” Buffy 1-7 dvd box set (May 14, ABC): There’s more misery for Izzy (Katherine Heigl) as the cancer-stricken doc contemplates whether to undergo a risky surgery. Meanwhile, George (T.R. Knight) delivers some stunning news that could pave the way for his exit from Seattle Grace.

_” CSI: NY ” (May 14, CBS): Producers have already let it out of the bag that a member of Mac’s team will be killed in the opening minutes of the episode. And if that isn’t enough, the life of another CSI is threatened. Brutal.

_” Desperate Housewives ” (May 17, ABC): Can creator Marc Cherry top his dramatic flash-forward finale of last season? We doubt it, but after watching poor Edie meet her tragic end, we’re at least hoping that the despicable Dave (Neal McDonough) gets an appropriate comeuppance.

_” 24 ″ (May 18, Fox): It’s a good bet that super agent Jack Bauer (Keifer Sutherland) will survive yet another hellish day (plans are already in the works for next season in New York). But what kind of explosive finish is in store _ and what will the final body count be? Look for the return of Jack’s daughter, Kim (Elisha Cuthbert).

_” Dancing with the Stars ” (May 19, ABC): Break out the spandex and the sequins and brace yourself for another over-bloated celebration of ballroom gymnastics. But after all that work (and all those injuries) shouldn’t the winners get something more than a gaudy disco-ball trophy?

_” NCIS ” (May 19, CBS): Can our hearts take it? Last year they stunned us by killing off Jenny Shepard (Lauren Holly). Now, producers are promising to drop another bombshell. Details are scarce, but the network’s logline says Gibbs (Mark Harmon) will be forced to make “a decision that sends shockwaves through NCIS.”

_” Two and a half men 1-5 dvd box set″ (May 19, The CW): It’s prom night and you know what that means: Bring on the drama. We’re told that Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) goes into labor during the big dance and that escalating tensions between Annie (Shenae Grimes) and Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) lead to “drastic consequences.”

_” American Idol ” (May 20, Fox): Is Adam Lambert already a stone-cold lock? Let’s hope not, because we yearn for at least a modicum of suspense in the moments before the confetti drops and the winner launches into a treacly ballad. Another reason to watch: It could be Paula Abdul’s “Idol” swan song.

_”The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (May 29, NBC): This send-off lost some oomph with the news that Leno will return next fall with a prime-time show. Still, after a long and triumphant run, he is ceding some of the most coveted turf in television to Conan O’Brien. Expect some big-name guests, lots of vintage clips and maybe a few tears.
