The last episode of LOST aired on ABC on May 23, 2010. That was more than eight years ago, but people are still fiercely divided about whether or not the mega-popular drama series came to a satisfying conclusion. (For the record, I still love it.)
But if you’ve ever been curious to have the LOST finale explained by actress Evangeline Lilly, who played scrappy criminal Kate Austen in all six seasons of the series, you’re in luck: Lilly took the stage at Dragon Con this past weekend and answered a fan question that involved her laying out an excellent interpretation of the show’s controversial ending.
