Lost Finale "Will Generate A Tremendous Amount Of Theorizing"

If you're expecting Lost to end with definitive answers think again. The Hollywood Reporter conducted an interview with Lost co-creator-showrunner Damon Lindelof, who revealed that the series finale will "end lost in a way that feels 'Lost'-ian and fair and will generate a tremendous amount of theorizing."

"The Sopranos ending only would have worked for The Sopranos. ... The great thing about series finales is that they have to fit the show. ... We're going to be as definitive as we can be and say this is our ending, but there's no way to end the show where the fans aren't going to say, 'What did they mean by this?' Which is why we're not going to explain it."

Also, Damon claims "a very large part of" the finale was "part of the original plan." Lindelof also addresses criticism of the sixth season's "Flash-sideways" by explaining that "people don't know what it is, they don't know how it connects back to the show."

"So we're throwing this big mystery into a show that already has a bunch of mysteries in a time frame when they are expecting us to be closing doors, not opening them."

Lindelof also revealed that some huge sets were created for the series finale, and to help avoid leaks, the final scenes were filmed during the middle of the production schedule instead of the final days. Watch the interview segments embedded below:
