The countdown is on...til the finale of LOST. This week the Exec Producers of the show were on Jimmy Kimmel Live & announced that the VERY last LOST will be Sunday May 23. That's 108 days from today. And that's it. No more. No Jack & Kate (plus 8?) spinoffs. No Lost: The Early Years. And Hurley will not be competing on the Biggest Loser anytime soon.
If you are lost after watching Wednesday's premiere of LOST, here's an explanation from Executive Producer Damon Lindelof--
Right out of the gate, in the first five minutes of the premiere, you get hit over the head with two things that you’re not expecting. The first is that Desmond is on the plane. The second thing that we do is we drop out of the plane and we go below the water and we see that the Island is submerged. What we’re trying to do there is basically say to you, “God bless the survivors of Oceanic 815, because they’re so self-centered, they thought the only effect [of detonating the bomb] was going to be that their plane never crashes.” But they don’t stop to think, “If we do this in 1977, what else is going to affected by this?” So that their entire lives can be changed radically.
In fact, it would appear that they’ve sunken the Island. That’s our way of saying, “Keep your eyes peeled for the differences that you’re not expecting.” Some of these characters were still in Australia, but some weren’t. Shannon’s not there. Boone actually says that he tried to get her back. There are all sorts of other people that we don’t see. Where’s Libby? Where’s Ana Lucia? Where’s Eko? These are all the things that you’re supposed to be thinking about.
A few more secrets were revealed on Kimmel's show too. Check out these clips if you missed it.
