Time Article On Evangeline Lillys Last Scene

Bandar Ceme OnlineThanks to Rads1971 for the heads up.

Six of Lost’s stars are on hand ΓÇö Michael Emerson, Matthew Fox, Jorge Garcia, Josh Holloway, Evangeline Lilly and Terry O’Quinn ΓÇö and before they shoot, they need to get sprayed down with a massive hose to simulate a drenching storm. Properly soaked, the actors take their places, Bender calls action, and ΓÇö Oh, like I’m going to tell you. It’s not just that if I were to give away the surprisingly spoilery scene they’ve let me witness, ABC would kill me. The two-and-a-half-hour finale, on May 23, is the broadcast event of the year: the network is charging $900,000 per 30-sec. ad, more than anything save the Oscars and the Super Bowl. It’s also that if you’re a Lost fan, you would kill me. This is a show that for six seasons has stretched the ambitions and challenged the assumptions of network television. Its intensely devoted fan base has been not just watching Lost but poring over it, dissecting details, formulating theories ΓÇö and avoiding the numerous spoilers, real and bogus, that are swirling around even now. So let’s just say the scene involves a typically Lostian mix of melodrama, metaphysics, emotion, blood, shouting, tenderness and comic relief. Also rain. A lot of rain.

When the scene’s done, Bender announces that this is the “series wrap” for Lilly: her last scene in Lost ever. Lilly, shivering and with her head wrapped in a towel, thanks her co-stars and her stunt double. There’s applause. Cigars are smoked. Holloway lifts her off the ground in a bear hug. I suddenly feel a little sea mist in my eyes. Shut up.

Something special is ending here. The cast knows it, I know it, fans at home know it. In an kala of diminished major-network expectations, Lost has made big, demanding, intellectual TV on a broadcast network. It’s married epic action with myth, science and ideas about human nature like few mass-culture hits besides Star Wars and The Matrix. Audaciously and improbably, it’s become TV’s most philosophical work of entertainment ΓÇö or its most entertaining work of philosophy.

Nestor Carbonell And Henry Ian Cusick Tease The End Of ‘Lost’

Bandar CemeThanks to Judy for the heads up.

Henry Ian Cusick and Nestor Carbonell were never going to tell a table of reporters anything about the ending of “Lost,” but in Carbonell’s case, he has a good excuse: He doesn’t know.

The show’s stars, including Cusick and Carbonell were given scripts containing 10 of 11 actors. Cusick received the 11th act, but Carbonell did not. [Yes, that’s probably a spoiler regarding the presence, or lack thereof, of Desmond and Richard Alpert in the last act of “Lost.” Perhaps. Or maybe not.]

“I never got the last act and I didn’t ask for it after because I just really want to watch it with America how it ends,” Carbonell explained at a Saturday (May 15) press day for many of the shows in the Disney-ABC empire. “I want to be surprised. I was happy with how they specifically with my character and with what I read about they resolved a lot of the dynamics of the characters. They did an amazing job and I’m looking forward to the simpulan resolution.”

Actually, there’s some confusion as to whether or not Cusick does, in fact, know how “Lost” ends.

“I think in act 11 there is a secret scene that no one got,” Cusick says. “Only the people who are in it, but nobody knows. Everyone is keeping very quiet about it.”

That’s pretty ambiguous, right?

Asking Cusick and Carbonell whether the finale will please “Lost” fans earned similarly ambiguous responses.

“What’s great about the show is that there are so many talking points,” Cusick says. “There are so many walks of life getting together to talk about the show and so many issues to be brought up and that’s exactly what the ending will bring up. People will be talking about it for weeks afterwards and that’s what the show has always done”

Adds Carbonell, “I think that’s a really good point. It has people talking about Biblical themes, mythological themes and literature, science verses religion. The big questions in life — incredible questions. At the heart of the show are these characters that they created, these really complex characters layered with so much misbehavior. No one is completely good and no one is completely evil. They are just well drawn out characters and that’s the heart of the show. I think the finale, without giving anything away, will bring some resolution to a lot of the dynamics between those characters and relationships”

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 Hatcher’s… comedy chops), but yeah, ‘What They Died For” is very solid. Among other things, it features, like, the best campfire story ever, a reveal about someone we thought wasn’t a candidate, and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ finale-levels of bloodshed. There’s also a significant development regarding Jacob’s 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
