I haven’t really weighed in on the Lost finale yet, because even now, four days after the fact, I’m still trying to figure out how Cuse and Lindelof thought they might escape without revealing so friggin’ much of the mysteries that had been raised during the six-year-run of the show. I’m not talking the nitpicky shit that we, the Losties, could dig up out of some episode from Season 2. I’m talking like the basics…like what exactly was the island? Who set up all these rules by which Jacob and MIB and their “mother” had to play? What did all the Egyptian stuff (like the statue for one) have to do with anything? And the like. The finale was emotionally gripping, but damn, there’s more questions unanswered than a Sarah Palin interview.
Anyway, Ben Linus himself, Michael Emerson, was recently on Devin’s occasional hangout, Attack of the Show, where he dropped the news that there will apparently be a 12 to 14-minute epilogue (via Collider):
For those people that want to pony up and buy the complete Lost series,
there is a bonus feature, which is…you could call it an epilogue. A
lost scene. It’s a lot. It’s 12 or 14 minutes that opens a window onto
that gap of unknown time between Hurley becoming number one and the end
of the series. It’s self-contained, although it’s a rich period in the
show’s mythology that ‘s never been explored, so who knows what will
come of it.
