Seems like poor planning to us!
The writers of Lost have revealed that they just don't have enough time to wrap up all the loose ends of the show! Co-creator Damon Lindelof explained:
"Now that we're [preparing] the finale, we're not at all having the experience of 'Oh, my God, we forgot to do this!' We're big fans of the show Top Chef. Those guys all run through Whole Foods and they have to pull all of this stuff down — they have to get stuff they might not use in the dish.
"When they get to the kitchen, they have to decide whether or not they're going to use it. Our process is kind of the same."
Co-creator Carlton Cuse continues:
"There's a lot of little questions that unfortunately we just don't have time to answer in the amount of time that we have left. Ultimately, the way we look at it is that if the characters don't care about that question, then we as storytellers don't care about that question."
What a BS excuse — the characters aren't REAL people! They're created by the said "storytellers!"
As for after the finale, that will be the end of discussion according to both of them as neither have plans to go in depth about the show after it completes its run.
"We feel like the show should stand on its own. We're actually not going to comment on the show after the finale. We want everybody to basically be able to continue the dialogue…
"We don't think it's really appropriate for us to say, 'Oh, here is the official definition for what we meant by any particular moment on the show.' "
Sounds like many people could be disappointed by the finale! What do U think, Lost fans?
