On last night’s Late Show, Matthew Fox — shiny suit and boots! — swung by to talk about the fever pitch of anticipation around the show’s finale. As David Letterman insisted last week to Evangeline Lilly — “a lovely young woman,” the host said obliviously, “who’s always on the show all the time” — the only ending he’ll accept is a dream sequence. “The only way this show will make any sense is if someone goes ‘Wake up, wake up,’” he told Fox. “And you go ‘oh, oh, we’re landing in Cincinnati.’ I will accept nothing other than that.” Fox did give us one spoiler: Cincinnati will play no part in the series finale.

posted a directory of “Across The Sea” blogging on his (highly recommended) Cultural Learnings website, and I encourage you to click over there and check it out after I’m done talking your ear off about all things Jacob. (To the mix of voices, I would also add our own Ken Tucker, who deemed “Across The Sea” a “stinker.”) One of the more contentious reviews I read came from Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune. She was troubled by the depiction of Mother and how Lost in her view has become “the epic, heroic or anti-heroic journeys of a bunch of white men.” As a white, anti-heroic man myself, I can’t quite relate to her critique — which I confess might be something of a problem on my part. Regardless, Maureen is a smart critic and has been a fan of Lost and her review is a credible, challenging (in a good way) read.For an episode that many fans allegedly disliked, “Across The Sea” has inspired some of the most spirited and thought-provoking commentary I’ve ever seen from Lost fandom. I’m not the first to make this observation. Myles McNutt has
Death by shooting. Death by stabbing. Death by explosion. Death by chocolate. There are thousands of ways to die, and we’ve seen a bunch of them on Lost. (Except for the chocolate one. That’d be sweet.) With so many characters biting the big one over the years, we decided to gather our dearly departed for a cool photograph that would be featured in EW’s Lost special issue, which is currently on newsstands. Those able to resurrect themselves for the occasion were: Ian Somerhalder (Boone), Harold Perrineau (Michael), Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet), Rebecca Mader (Charlotte), William Mathoper (Ethan), Cynthis Watros (Libby) Mira Furlan (Rousseau), Marsha Thomason (Naomi), and Daniel Roebuck (Arzt). In addition, John Young and I interviewed the actors about their demise. Highlights from those interviews appear in the magazine, as well as in the video after the jump. And check out this gallery of photo outtakes from the shoot. READ FULL STORY
Threadless. But I’m happy to settle, because it’s pretty freaking awesome.I know all of us Lost fans are currently trying to figure out what we will wear to our respective series finale viewing parties on May 23. I’m still trying to find a T-shirt that reads, “Kate: Please stop following people into the jungle. Kthxbai,” but since my search is coming up empty, I think I’ll have to settle with this shirt by designer Nathan W. Pyle on
During last night’s chat with David Letterman, Lost star Evangeline Lilly discussed the much-anticipated finale to this Mobius strip of a show. In teasing for scoop, Letterman wondered if Lost would go out Sopranos-style, with red herrings and an open-ended cut-to-black. “The finale, without giving too much away, holds true to our Lost traditions,” said Lilly. Say wha? “It represents the show nicely,” she hedged. Letterman decided that the only possible satisfying ending was for this whole island hoo-ha to have been one elaborate dream, to which Lilly declared him the least imaginative person in all of North America. When he pushed her to tell him once and for all what happens, she rather charmingly set up a possible scenario that involved Letterman’s wished-for dream ending. READ FULL STORY
