Getting 'Lost': Looking ahead to Sunday’s finale
Update: As promised, here's the video shot at last night at our "Lost" Farewell Fest happy hour:
-- 2:52 p.m. ET
In case you missed it, Jen and I sat down this morning for a short live video chat to talk about our expectations for Sunday’s big series ender. Watch the archived video below to get our thoughts on everything from what won’t be addressed in the finale to which character we’d like to see flattened by a Dharma food drop:
And, since we’re talking “Lost,” here are a few more items on our radar going into the weekend…
Read Hank Stuever's excellent piece from today's paper about the "Lost" vibe and the show's parallels with, well, the real world over the past six years. Here's a taste:
As it lugubriously ends Sunday night on ABC, "Lost" leaves us more or less where it all began, but also with a spooky idea of the 21st century thus far. It was the perfect show for our frustrated '00s era, in which no one had to answer for anything much -- not for the real estate and Wall Street busts, the levee floods, the bad war intelligence.
Sure, it all began on a beach six years ago. But before the beach came the audition tapes. Jezebel.com has collected 14 of them on one handy page. Best of the bunch: Michael Emerson's fake audition for the part of Hurley.
Speaking of Hurley, read actor Jorge Garcia's heartfelt goodbye to "Lost," posted today in Variety. An excerpt:
During the pilot and the first summer of shooting we bonded quickly as a cast. After all, not unlike the show's premise, we literally found ourselves on an island with one another. We'd go to each other's houses on the weekends and nights when we weren't shooting. When the shows started airing, we would usually gather at the house of whomever the show was going to feature that week to watch and congratulate each other.
All week, we've been collecting your predictions for "Lost's" final scene in our Message in a Bottle feature. Read some of the more interesting (and some laugh out loud funny) theories, then submit your own. The leading theories so far, by the way: 1. In an echo of the pilot's opening scene, we'll end on a close-up of Jack's eye and, 2. In a nod to the season 5 finale, we'll end with two men on a beach (but this time perhaps Jack and Locke rather than Jacob and MIB). One man will turn to the other and say, Do you know how much I want to kill you?"
Speaking of eyeballs, check out this mash-up of "Lost" eyeball footage:
The polls are still open in our "Lost" Superlatives. Vote for your favorite characters for honors in categories ranging from the superficial -- most attractive, cutest couple -- to the incredibly specific -- least trustworthy, worst parent.
A big thanks to everyone who turned out for our "Lost" Farewell Fest happy hour last night in D.C., especially the brave souls who took the time to put together costumes. If you weren't able to attend, we'll be posting video from the event here later this afternoon.
