This is it, folks: This is absolutely the very last episode… before the series finale. And before you get all nostalgic, watch the video and then type your feelings below: What did you make of “Across the Sea”? Do you buy into the idea that Mother may have Smoke Monster-y abilities? And if you had to give the Man in Black a name, what would it be? (Hit @dansnierson with your inspiration, and the best answer that’s not Nigel will receive its due in a manner to be determined later. How’s that for a sexy prize?) READ FULL STORY »Last week, Lost gave us a different kind of episode, one in which we journeyed back to the earlier days of the Island, where we met the Boy in Black, Jacob as Junior, and one crazy Mother. This week on Totally Lost — the Lost web show that is 47 percent Doc Jensen, 44 percent Dan Snierson, and 9 percent “Other/No Response” — we break form to delve into the mysteries of “Across the Sea.” You may find the experience therapeutic. You may also find it a little bizzare. In any case, we hope to shed light on the episode with the help of some very gracious — and hilarious — guests. We’ll also be changing up the teasers this week for the ominously titled “What They Died For.” Sorry, but you don’t get three hints about tonight’s action — you get four!

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
