LOST Epilogue Will Give Us Answers

Millions of fans were left scratching their heads last month when the television show, LOST, came to a close. Not a whole lot was answered and fans demanded more. Thankfully, the Blu Ray/DVD release of the complete series will include a 12-14 minute epilogue that wraps up a few things.According to Slash Film, we will know the following:

  • The epilogue is actually only 11-minutes in length.
  • The title of the epilogue is “The New Man in Charge”
  • G4 says the epilogue will “shine some light on the period after Hurley became the Island’s protector and Ben assumed the role of his number two.”
  • Jarett Wieselman of The New York Post apparently saw the first minute of the new footage and commented that “the long wait is worth it!”
  • Michael Emerson, who plays Ben on the show, told Attack of the Show the following:

    “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.”

    Jorge Garcia, who plays Hurley, told E! Online the following:

    “It will address some of the issues, like the food drops, and it will deal with what happened on the island after Hurley took over and how he handled things. It will give you a taste of what took place after Hurley took over as the new number one. There’s a little epilogue thing going on with the DVD.”

    Lastly, according to an insider, we will also see Walt and what happened to him.

    Hopefully the epilogue provides more answers than questions. While I didn’t hate the series finale, it could of provided a lot more answers. Will the epilogue ease our minds?  I guess we’ll have to see on August 24, 2010 when it is released.
