Menang CemeThanks to Dani for the scans. I’ve not had a chance to read them all yet so there may be the odd little spoiler in them.
Bandar Ceme OnlineGiven all the time Lost has spent lately on Jacob (Mark Pellegrino) and the Man in Black (Terry O’Quinn), you might think they’re the key to the show or something. They’re not.
“It would be mis-categorizing to think this is the epitome of what Lost is,” executive producer Damon Lindelof tells TVGuide.com. “Obviously the island was there before these babies were born, and lots of things were going on before they came there. What those stories are isn’t relevant to the story we told, which is the crash of Oceanic 815 and what the ultimate fates of the survivors are.”
Okay, but in that case, why so much attention on the dueling brothers? Your guess is as good as ours. The penultimate episode, which Lindelof screened last week at an event in Los Angeles, still leaves plenty of questions unanswered going into the 2 ┬╜-hour finale (airing Sunday at 9/8c). Lindelof’s explanation of what to expect echoes a line Jacob delivered to the Man in Black in the Season 5 finale: “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.”
“I wish that we could say that the finale is going to be enormously definitive,” Lindelof says. “We found that when we told people that we’ve got definitive answers coming, it’s not as definitive as the fans want it to be, therefore there’s this ongoing and vociferous debate about what things mean.
“All we can say is: Lost is only ending once,” he adds. “There’s only one finale. There’s not a question mark at the end of the end. There’s not a dot, dot, dot. This is our story and it’s over. Hopefully there’s going to be a lot of interpretation in its wake.”
Whatever the ending, Lindelof is grateful to have made it this far, he says.
“This was a pilot where the question asked secondary to ‘What is the monster?’ was ‘How will you sustain this as a TV series?'” he says. “If I had said, ‘We’ll be fine for 120 episodes, and then we’ll end it,’ nobody ever would’ve believed it, including me. I think the show is a blessing and we’re really grateful to be here.”

Menang CemeDonΓÇÖt give anything specific away, but is this weekΓÇÖs ΓÇÿLostΓÇÖ a spectacular episode with lots of questions answered, or is it just so-so? ΓÇô Steven via Facebook
Spectacular is a strong word (and one typically associated with Teri HatcherΓÇÖsΓÇª comedy chops), but yeah, ΓÇÿWhat They Died ForΓÇ¥ is very solid. Among other things, it features, like, the best campfire story ever, a reveal about someone we thought wasnΓÇÖt a candidate, and ΓÇÿGreyΓÇÖs AnatomyΓÇÖ finale-levels of bloodshed. ThereΓÇÖs also a significant development regarding JacobΓÇÖs successor.
Will we see Rose and Bernard one more time before ΓÇÿLostΓÇÖ ends? ΓÇô James
Yes, in SundayΓÇÖs series finale. And when the marrieds resurface, theyΓÇÖre still wielding a ΓÇ£DonΓÇÖt harsh my mellowΓÇ¥ ΓÇÿtude as their idyllic existence is rudely intruded upon (and then some). L. Scott Caldwell, who plays Rose, told me she herself isnΓÇÖt fond of RoseΓÇÖs lack of hospitality, seeing as the fans had come to regard the character as ΓÇ£quite peaceful.ΓÇ¥ So in her mind, R&B ΓÇ£were probably eating wild mushrooms or something else that changed their attitude!ΓÇ¥
So, Juliet/Sawyer ΓÇô happily ever after? Yes? ΓÇô Ryan
