The fifth season of LOST ended with a white flash and, therefore, a possible blank slate. I couldn't help but applaud the show's creators, as this same season finale meant that anything was possible for the shows sixth and final season. If you thought that the powers behind LOST had no idea on the direction the show was heading, think again.
It turns out that one castaway has at least a good idea on what to expect from the show's final hurrah, and he doesn't mind discussing his excitement for what's to come.
Matthew Fox Not so Lost?
EOnline caught up to Matthew Fox, aka Jack, who sounds incredibly pleased by what he knows about the upcoming episodes of LOST.
Matthew Fox says Lost creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse will prove they knew where they were going all along when the show ends in "an incredibly powerful, very sad and beautiful way. I think is going to be pretty awesome."
Still confused about that smoke monster? Well, the show will touch upon that er, creature again too.
"I think [the smoke monster] is going to be very satisfying and cathartic and redemptive and beautiful. I've talked to Damon pretty extensively and every time I talk to him it's sort of surprising how moving it is just to talk about it."
Sound exciting? Most definitely. Now all we have to do is wait until next year (sigh) for the return of the show. To hold us over, Fox hinted on how the final season will begin.
"It's very surprising and probably fairly confusing initially to the audience. Like a third of the way in [to the season] I would guess we are going to [settle] in one time frame and it will be very linear—no more flashbacks, nothing. It will be on the island and sort of a final conflict to the end."
No more flashbacks (or forwards)? Wow, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I've grown pretty fond of those.
