Well, guess what? That's not happening, either.
So says co-creator Damon Lindelof. In an interview with the Live Feed, Lindelof states that they'll be as definitive as they can be with their ending; however, people are still going to say, "What did they mean by that?" That's not to say the finale is going to be like the still talked about cut-to-black ending of 'The Sopranos.'
I don't remember exactly how the conversation went (I wish I had a tape recorder running), but it was very close to this:
Sister: Oh, you watch 'Lost?'
Me: Yeah, it's great!
Sister: So what's going on on it?
Sister: I mean, the last time I saw it they were on an island. That guy who was on 'The Practice' was there.
Me: Michael Emerson. He's a great actor.
Sister: So what has happened since then?
And, apparently, it only makes matters worse if you hang out in a temple. We're just glad our heroes have some smooth moves left in them.

What jumped out to me in the podcast posted after the season premiere last week has to do with the timeline(s).
(S06E03) "It's the Others, dude. They caught us ... again." - Hurley
As 'What Kate Does' unfolded, I couldn't help but shake the feeling that everything we're witnessing in the "post-Jughead worked" 2004 time-line is going to end up being very important. Of course, that could have been due to the fact that in this past week's Official 'Lost' Audio Podcast, Cuse and Lindelof essentially laid it bare for us -- there is no alternate reality happening here. What's going on in LA in 2004 and what's going on in 2007 on the island are both very real.
The question to ask is what effect actions in one time-line will have on the events in the other. As far as 'Lost' mindf#%ks go, this one is a doozie, because it's forced us to reevaluate everything we remember about these characters, right back to the pilot episode.
The interview is in two parts, the second is after the jump.
The creepy new Asian leader (Are we calling them "Other Others"?) said that Sayid was beyond saving, even for the Island. However, right before that all too familiar end, Sayid sat up like he had just been taking an afternoon nap.
When John Locke looked at Ben and said, "I'm sorry you had to see me like that," it was the line heard 'round the world. Of course, this was after the Smoke Monster swirled around and took out a few people in the process – meaning John Locke is the Smoke Monster!
Yes, we're majorly excited about the repercussions of all this and can't wait to find out what happens next. And didn't Terry O'Quinn turn in another fine performance as Locke? Read our recap of tonight's episode of 'Lost.'
Watch the video after the jump.
|Happy ending: they all get off the island!||154 (9.8%)|
|Kinda-happy ending: some die but most get off the island||569 (36.1%)|
|Kinda-sad ending: some die, some stay on island, lives are screwed up||562 (35.7%)|
|Really sad ending: everyone dies||200 (12.7%)|
|Other scenario (say in comments)||89 (5.7%)|
As the creeptastic Ben Linus on Lost, Michael Emerson has been the puppet master on the island. He spends his days murdering people, causing others to murder different people, playing mind games and just generally making life more difficult for the survivors of Oceanic flight 815 and everyone else whom he encounters.
Ever since he was going by the name, "Henry Gale," Ben has been a fan favorite on the series. Recently, I was able to grab a few minutes of his time to chat about this week's season finale of Lost and the evolution of Benjamin Linus. He even gives me some parenting advice!
The interview follows after the jump, and as we do discuss this week's finale, I should probably give you a spoiler warning right now. However, since it's Lost, he's not able to give too much away. FACT: The smoke monster is real, and is deployed against any actor who dares to speak too freely about the show-- so I got what I could.
When we last left our castaways on Lost, Ben had just woken up and seen that Locke was sitting next to his bed. Locke obviously has a ton of questions for Mr. Linus, such as "why did you strangle me to death," and Ben had a look of surprise on his face.
So fans are wondering if Ben is shocked to find out that Locke is alive (because he was, you know, dead) or if Ben killed Locke knowing that he would come back to life some day (I just realized how crazy that sentence must sound to people who don't watch the show). Well, after the jump is a sneak peek at tonight's new episode, courtesy of Kristin over at E!
It's good to have a talk show host who is also a big TV fan. Most times, a celeb or producer or writer will come on the show and the only thing that the host can talk to them regarding their latest project is something in general terms, maybe an "I saw the movie and it's great" and not much more. Luckily, Jimmy Kimmel is as much a Lost fan as the rest of us.
He had producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse on the show last week and asked them many questions about the show (side note: did you know they both worked on Nash Bridges, which Cuse created?!). But the big question answered had nothing to do with the smoke monster or time travel or the flash forwards or numbers or hatches or Michael Emerson, who was supposed to be on the show for only two episodes at first, or why the smoke monster didn't kill the mercenaries (there's a reason!). Those aren't the important mysteries.
The big question is, what the hell is going on with Matthew Fox's chest hair? Video after the jump!
And I mean that's exactly what you get on the web site. If Lost is a repeat a particular week, all you'll see on the whole web page is a "NO!" If it's a new episode, it's just a "YES!"
I love a web site that gets right down to it.
