So last night was the big premier of the final season of LOST. I watched it.
And I am annoyed.
As a fan of the show, I’m used to not knowing what the hell is going on all the time. But…this is the final season. And we’re supposed to get some answers.
Not only that, but the producers of the show told us, we are going to get answers:
“Normally the thing that you have to execute is coming up with fulfilling endings and resolve the fate of your characters,” said Damon Lindelof, an executive producer who, with Carlton Cuse, oversees the series and is writing the key episodes for the coming season. “But we also have the added weight of how are we going to resolve this mythology.
“The show is so predicated on questions. So now we’re in answer mode, and have been for quite some time.”
…Viewers will not have to wait until the last moments of the series finale to get many of their answers, they say. Beginning with the season premiere, revelations about some of the most fundamental mysteries will come fast and furious.
The Temple? WTF was that?
The people in the Temple? Who TF were they?
Why are there two timelines?
They killed off Juliet? TWICE?
What year is it on the island?
How is the man in black Locke?
What is he doing?
Why did Jacob let Ben stab him?
Why can only Hurley see Jacob?
I WANT MY ANSWERS DAMMIT.
All we learned last night was that the smoke monster was the guy in black who looks like Locke.
Seriously annoying. I feel like the show is going to lose me if they don’t give us more concrete answers to all this.
And if this season is simply a setup to a LOST movie or some bullshit like that, I will be pissed.
