Still Lost on LOST? Let Evangeline Lilly Explain The Finale To You

4+8+15+16+23+42= 108…

Which is the number of minutes one has to input those numbers into the old-timey computer or the world will end, or so we were told. If you have no idea what I am babbling on about, then you’ve probably never seen LOST. One of my favorite shows ever. It was one of the more popular shows of its time and like many popular shows had a divisive ending, or perhaps even a divisive final season. Lots of fans either didn’t get the final season, or just plain didn’t like it. Even for me, it took me a while to come around to it, but now I think it was a wonderful idea.

Evangeline Lilly, who more or less was catapulted to fame for her role as Kate Austen on the series, recently spoke on a panel while attending Dragon Con, and took some time to explain the LOST finale.

“Well, I’m going to have to go straight to the finale. Vote of confidence, who liked the finale? [The room broke out into cheers] Who did not like the finale? [about the same amount of cheers] About 50/50. So, for those of who you didn’t like it; you loved our show, because at the end of every week, it would leave you with an impossible and pressing mystery. It would force you to the water cooler, or the dinner table, asking each other the most difficult questions. Usually philosophical questions. Sometimes questions that touched on God or religion and reality, and what it means to be human.

And then, on the finale, you sat waiting with bated breath, thinking ‘they’re gonna give us the answer’…well, that’s what religions do. So if you want the answer to the great big question of life, go to church, go to God, find the answer, but art…art is supposed to, every time without fail, turn the question back onto you, and asks you to look at what you’re seeing, listen to what you’re hearing, experience it, and then look at it in the mirror of your soul, and figure out what it means to you. And so there is no one interpretation of the finale of LOST, for as many people that are in this room, there are that many true, real, endings for LOST.

Because it’s just a reflection of who you are, and it’s the ultimate question being posed to you, not the ultimate answer being handed to you.”

As Lilly stated above, there are many interpretations of the finale and the final season, one of the more solid and simple examples follows in the video below (excuse the focusing issues).
