WARNING: MAJOR, MAJOR, MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD FOR ANYONE WHO WATCHED LOST! DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW!
You wondering how there are spoilers to a show that's already ended, aren't you?
Well, there were so many unanswered questions when Lost was over that we dare say there might be spoilers thrown around for the next 5 years or so.
But anyway, the final season of Lost will be available on DVD this week and in the special features department there is something truly epic for fans - an alternative ending.
More accurately, its a kind of epilogue, explaining what happened after Jack closed his eyes and went to the island in the great beyond. Fans know that Hurley became the new Jacob and took Ben on as his #2 man, but this epilogue explains more about what happened during that time as well as answer some of the big questions left unanswered in the series.
Want to know what happens? Remember, we said it before SPOILER ALERT!
The epilogue starts off in a warehouse in Guam, where two man have been building the food bundles that get dropped off on the island for the last couple decades without even knowing that the Dharma Initiative had folded. Ben arrives to relieve them of their duties, announcing that there is a new man in charge and that their services are no longer required. Of course, they have questions, but rather than answer them personally, Ben shows them an old Hydra Station Orientation Video by Dr. Pierre Chang.
This is where the good stuff comes in. We learn that the island didn't have just one polar bear, but several, brought to the island to be the subject of electromagnetic studies. We learn that the female bears are kept from getting preggers as the "electromagnetic levels have harmful effects on early term gestation.” (Hence why woman could not get pregnant on the island.)
The tape covers a lot, ranging from Room 23 to the Hurley Bird. Once the DVD is over, Ben leaves for his second stop of the evening.
Ben arrives at the Hurley's old mental institution to see a boy named Keith Johnson. Keith turns out to be Walt, but why he is in the hospital, we never learn. (Hey, this is Lost! There had to be one mystery thrown in there.)
And that's as much as we can tell, other than viewers will get some closure on the Walt storyline as well. It's a really good watch for anyone who felt a bit slighted from the finale.
Okay Losties - thoughts?
