My gut feel is that my source is correct and that Jeff is having some fun with the interview… I guess we’ll have to wait another week to find out for sure.
If it turns out my source was wrong, then this puts into question the scripts that have been read by my sources …….
So, the question everyone wants to know, because the answer isnΓÇÖt completely clear: Did Lapidus actually die in the last episode of Lost? I mean, we didnΓÇÖt actually see him dieΓÇª [Laughs] Well, he went down with the submarine. Yeah, heΓÇÖs dead.
We havenΓÇÖt seen a sideways universe version of Lapidus. Will we? No, itΓÇÖs over.
ThereΓÇÖs no more Lapidus at all? Sorry, Kyle. HeΓÇÖs done.
I need to take a moment, Jeff. I know. His ride is over. The dream is over for Frank Lapidus.

Bandar CemeHere is a new interview with Michael Emerson about next week’s episode and the finale.
He discusses what to expect for Ben both off and on island.
Thanks to our friend Jarett from the NY Post for the heads up!
PopWrap: Currently Ben is off with Alpert and Miles — what exactly are they doing and when will we see Ben again? Michael: They have gone to get explosives and Alpert is determined to blow up the plane because he feels like the man in black must never leave the island. [He’s back] next week and Ben has a lot to do in the subsequent episodes.
PW: Does that mean we’ll see Ben with Alex again? Michael: IΓÇÖm not even trying to be coy, but you will see them together again, however, not in the shape you expect it.
PW: What else can you tease about the selesai few episodes? Michael: Well, we’re almost done with BenΓÇÖs flash-sideways journey. Most of what we have with Ben from now on will be in the present island narrative. And in the coming weeks Ben ends up in a new and dangerous alliance that has a surprising outcome.
PW: A lot of fans have wondered what the actual purpose for the flash-sideways is — will it eventually be explained? Michael: Yes, but theyΓÇÖre not going to spoon feed it to you. For me, the ending of the series required some analysis. ItΓÇÖs not given to you on a dish, neatly organized with a fancy bow put on the end of it. What it does have is a great soulfulness and the ending is human scale.
PW: You mention that Ben’s off-island journey is almost done, how so? Michael: You wonΓÇÖt realize this until the series is done, but more than anyone elseΓÇÖs flash-sideways ΓÇô his [episode, “Dr. Linus”] resolved BenΓÇÖs character. You may not feel that way yet, but it brought us very close to wrapping things up his arc. What I mean is, if you never saw Ben again in the series, you could look back after the finale and think, ΓÇ£oh, OK ΓÇô IΓÇÖm at peace with the way he wrapped up.ΓÇ¥
PW: It sounds like fans will have to do a lot of rewatching once the series finale airs. Michael: Yeah. Well, I think thatΓÇÖs a possible response for some people. I have received the finale by degrees. I read the script without the secret scenes, then I read the secret scenes, then I shot the script and each time IΓÇÖm thinking about “what does this mean?”
When I first read it, the ending wasnΓÇÖt clear to me ΓÇô but since then itΓÇÖs grown more clear and I have to say, grown more satisfying the more I think about it. I expect a mixture of satisfaction and consternation amongst the viewers when it airs. But once they rewatch it, rethink about it and possibly look at the saga again, gradually they will feel like they have just read a good novel — but you have to chew on it for a while.
This week’s mythos-heavy episode of Lost left fans with ΓÇö you guessed it ΓÇö more questions than answers. With just two episodes remaining before we find whether the show’s mysteries will ever be explained or if its producers have just been messing with us, we tracked down Jacob himself, Mark Pellegrino. He talks about who’s good, who’s bad, the father of Jacob and the man/boy in black (Titus Welliver), and whether any of it matters.
TVGuide.com: Last night’s Lost was quite the head scratcher. Pellegrino: I’ve been hearing that. I’ve been hearing quite a bit about that. [Laughs]
TVGuide.com: A lot of fans griped after the episode because they still felt confused about the mythology. Will there be more explanation in the last few episodes? Pellegrino: There will be. There will be some ends tied, but I can’t guarantee that for everyone. People have been debating the meaning of the show and the various subplots for years, and I wonder if all of the questions are going to be answered. That’s a tall order, but I think many people will be satisfied.
TVGuide.com: All along we thought Jacob was a good guy, but he’s not as good as we thought. Pellegrino: On a certain level, the line between good and evil has an indistinctive blurring. I think there’s a lot of crossover in the show. That doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m not good, though. Things will become clearer in the next episode, definitely. I think you’ll make up your mind one way or the other for sure, but it’s not going to be clean and pristine. You’ll definitely come down on one side or the other.
TVGuide.com: How did Jacob go from a mama’s boy to a man of confidence? Pellegrino: I think there’s a transformation that takes place when my mother gives me the wine. It opens certain doors for me. I think living for almost 2000 years ΓÇö just the simple act of living, thinking and turning over ideas ΓÇö can lead, hopefully, to a kind of wisdom.
TVGuide.com: Why can Jacob leave the island, as he’s done to visit his candidates, but the Man in Black cannot? Pellegrino: This is a question that I’ve wondered about myself actually. I don’t think the answer is directly provided in any episode, but it could be the fact that I’m a guardian of sorts and therefore have a certain power to exit when I want to. He can leave as long as it’s directly for a certain purpose. After I threw the Man in Black in the pit, he’s chained there. He’s become incorporeal, and he’s in something worse than hell.
TVGuide.com: Does the Man in Black still view Jacob as a brother? Pellegrino: I think he does. There’s still that brotherly bond between the two of them. Even though The Man in Black has changed dramatically and he’s gone from loving me to wanting me dead, there’s still that bond between us.
TVGuide.com: Who’s their daddy and does it matter? Pellegrino: Some Roman, I imagine. Does it matter? No, I think in the end, no. I like to think that my daddy is Marcus Aurelius.
TVGuide.com: I’m sure you can’t say who takes Jacob’s place as the guardian of the island, but can you say whether someone will actually take up the position? Pellegrino: That remains to be seen.
TVGuide.com: Will we see Jacob again before the end of the series? Pellegrino: You will be seeing me some more, yes.
Who’s side are you on: Jacob or the Man in Black’s?
