The hit show Lost, created by Trek XI producers Damon Lindelof and JJ Abrams finishes it’s third season tonight with a 2 hour finale. The episode titled "Through the Looking Glass" was written by Lindelof along with co show runner Carlton Cuse.
Some quotes from Abrams & Lindelof about the finale (w/ spoilers) below
In an interview with USA Today the show producers promise that tonight "will be an evening of conflict — and bloodshed — between the crash survivors and the Others." As usual they are still coy about details by Abrams is quoted as saying
The ending is so mind-blowing, it’s crazy
One of the payoff’s in the finale will be the reuniting of the mysterious Danielle Rousseau (aka "the French lady" played by Babylon 5’s Mira Furlan) with her daughter Alex (Tania Raymonde). On the reunion JJ Abrams states
The challenge in a show like Lost with so many different people is characters getting lost, but they have made Danielle and Alex so identifiable and complex. I certainly think people are looking forward to seeing this reunion. It’s something we’ve been playing to all year.
EW.com got Damon Lindelof to list off the ‘5 things you wont see in the finale’
5. Rose quietly snuffing the life out of Bernard by holding his nostrils closed while looking distractedly at Aaron’s car seat.
4. Hurley feeling a great disturbance in the Force (”as if many voices cried out and were suddenly silent”) because his cousin back in Valencia, Calif., was blown up in a nuclear explosion and no one seemed to give a crud.
3. Kate and Juliet doing each other’s hair and nicknaming Jack”McIntensey” and Sawyer ”McMurderedTheManWhoConnedHisParentsy.”
2. A character traveling back in time to warn all the other characters to do something, but by doing that something, they prevent a future that might have happened but never did had the character not travelled back in time, thus negating the entire reason behind everything.
Lindelof also promises that you will see Jack smile…twice!. Lindelof’s list shows his trademark humor. If you haven’t yet had a chance, then check out Lindelof & Cuse’s weekly Lost podcasts (in iTunes) where he regularly shows that he doesn’t take things too seriously.
If you have not yet found Lost then it is worth getting into on DVD, in fact it may be better. The Abrams directed two hour series premiere (also written by Lindelof and Abrams) may be one of the best TV pilots ever made. The Emmy-winning first season changed the TV landscape and made sci-fi cool again – opening the door to shows like Heroes. The second season did drag a bit as did the beginning of the third, but the latter half has really turned it around again. Lost finished up its Season 3 production very recently. The shorted 16 episode Season 4 does not premiere until January of 2008, leaving a very long hiatus for Abrams and Lindelof to get to work on that other little project of theirs…I forget what it is called but it involves someone called Kirk.
