Interview With A Spoiler Source About The Finale

Menang CemeI recently had the opportunity to have an in depth chat with one of my longest and most trusted sources about the simpulan few episodes of Lost.

It’s been a wonderful opportunity to have a contact like this to chat and confirm a variety of spoilers over the years and to provide our readers with little snippets/games/teasers for upcoming episodes.

I’ve summarised the answers and questions below which obviously go behind the now infamous “Are You Sure” buttons.

I hope you enjoy it.

Another Interview With Damon And Carlton – Finale Details

Menang CemeHere are some more details about the finale via Damon and Carlton who confirm whether we will see Richard again or not and more!!

Thanks to IGN for this interview:

IGN: Should we be thinking Richard suffered an unceremonious death?

Lindelof: When the Monster hit him?

Carlton Cuse: No, I think that would be way too unceremonious for a character as important as Richard. So let’s just say that was a bus stop, butΓǪ

Lindelof: A bus stopped right on his face!

Cuse: A bus stopped right on his face. Exactly! You will be seeing more of Richard in the finale.

IGN: There was a quick line Desmond had this week about Ana Lucia and how she wasn’t “ready yet.” Is that something you might have time to delve into?

Lindelof: Well, all we can say is that in “Happily Ever After,” when Desmond confronted Eloise Hawking and he wanted to know why she wouldn’t reveal to him why Penny’s name was on this guest list, she said to him that he should stop asking these questions, because he wasn’t ready. So that was the other time we heard that word. Ready for what exactly…?

Cuse: It’s meant to be an intriguing clue that you are right to be pondering.

IGN: There’s so much hype for the finale. There’s a big countdown clock just a block away, in Times SquareΓǪ

Lindelof: We just saw that!

Cuse: We were driving down here to the Times Center and said, “Oh my god!”

Lindelof: It’s nice to see how many more seconds that people will care about us.

IGN: The fandom of this show is intense and you obviously want to deliver a satisfying conclusion, but at a certain point how do you tune out all the fan expectations, so you don’t get overwhelmed and can just do your work?

Cuse: I think we try to just stay inwardly focused. We’ve sort of done our job. The finale is made. We put our last shot in Monday night. The hay is in the proverbial barn and we’re going to watch it with our closest collaborators and our spouses and that’s the perfect group of people. We’ve all worked together for six years on the show. We all care enormously about each other and that will be a really great experience. So we’re looking forward to sort of the shared communal experience of experiencing the finale together with the people we’ve worked with. Television is enormously collaborative, so to share that experience with all those people will be really special.

Lindelof: We really care, deeply, what the fans think and of course we want them to love it. But at the same time, we acknowledge that there’s no finale that we could have made that everybody would love. Therefore, we set out to basically make ourselves happy, because people are going to see the finale. It’s almost here. We could tell you right now, some people are going to say it’s the worst finale in the history of television and other people are going to say it’s the best finale in the history of television. It’s just a matter of percentages.

Cuse: Our mothers are going to say it’s the best finale.

Lindelof: My mother has to say it. She’s right behind you! [Lindelof points past me, where his mother is indeed standing]. But essentially, we’ve been doing a lot of press, and 50% of the reporters are asking us, “So, do you guys feel a tremendous amount of pressure to live up to the awesomeness of The Sopranos finale?” And we answer that, and the other 50% say, “Are you afraid of pissing people off with an unsatisfying copout in the same way that The Sopranos finale did?” And we look at it and go, “Okay, well, we’ve now gotten a glimpse at our own future.” Which is that both camps are going to exist.

IGN: People tend to grab onto every aspect of this show, including things that might never have been intended to be a big mystery. Is there one that keeps coming back, where you’re constantly amused people are putting a lot of importance into it?

Cuse: I think that there are a few kind of questions that surface, like are we ever going to see the Hurley Bird again. There was this huge bird flying around the island that made a cry that sounded like he was saying Hurley. We had just mentioned in the last couple of days that there’s going to be a feature on the DVDs which will, sort of in an entertaining way, answer some of these questions that are unanswered. The show speaks for itself and it’s not something anyone needs to see, but for people who are curious about some of these unanswered questions that fall into the category that you’re talking about, then the DVD feature will be very enjoyable.

Lindelof: And then there are the Kate’s plane phenomenon, where we actually think we’ve given a pretty good answer, but the question still is pervasive.

Cuse: “What are the polar bears?”

Lindelof: What are the polar bears, or, “What’s the story with Aaron?” And we go, okay, the story with Aaron is that a psychic told Claire that he was special, but then subsequently, in an Eko episode, we revealed that the psychic was a fraud. So people are like, “Why is Aaron special?” and we’re like, “But, that wasn’t true. That guy was a liar.” “Well, why did The Others abduct him?” Well, the Others revealed that they abducted him because he was a baby born on the island, and they wanted to see if there was anything they could glean scientifically to solve their fertility issues.

And so there it is in the show, in black and white, but people still say, “So why is Aaron special?!” or, “What are you going to reveal about him?” Aaron became emotionally special, because Kate ended up having to raise him and she ended up returning to the island to bring Claire back home. So that’s why he’s special. But if you’re looking for the answer to, “What are his superpowers?” or “When will he finally deploy his laser eyes?”, the answer isΓǪ the finale. He deploys his laser eyes in the finale.

IGN: And we should assume the obvious, regarding who the mother of Jack’s son is, I assume… It’s pretty clearly going to be Nikki, right?

Lindelof: [Laughs] Yes! Wow! You’re the first person who cracked it.

Cuse: Yes, Nikki!

IGN: You know, I just had a feeling…

Lindelof: Oh my god. They’ll never see that coming!

Nestor Carbonell & Hic Interview With Tv Guide

Menang CemeNow that we know the Man in Black’s ultimate game plan on Lost, Henry Ian Cusick says there’s no way Desmond will help him destroy the island.

“Whatever the Man in Black wants, I’m imagining Desmond will want the opposite,” Cusick tells TVGuide.com.

Cusick and co-star Nestor Carbonell also discuss the meaning behind Lost, which Carbonell says “is ultimately based on love.”

Check out our video Q&A with them about the series finale of Lost, airing Sunday at 9/8c on ABC:
