Damon Lindelof Talks Lost Ending For Disappointed Fans

| Filed under: TV News

Damon Lindelof

Yes, we're STILL talking about this!

When Lost aired its season finale back in 2010 nearly almost everyone was left disappointed.

The show's Executive Producer, Damon Lindelof, has a message for all fans that didn't like his ending: Suck it!

Okay, he didn't say "suck it," but he DID say if he had the chance to rewrite it, he wouldn't.

In a final attempt to settle the score with an angry fan / interviewer, Damon said:

"There were a bunch of other writers on the show, but in terms of my own feelings of how the [show's] ending I made no apologies for it. I do feel like that was the ending I wanted to do. I was always comfortable with the ambiguity of the show."

He goes on to say the ONLY regret he has about is work on Lost is saying "the answers are coming" in interviews.

He admits that there was a while during the first few seasons when the writers were just making shiz up! According to DL, they did a lot of "improvising" in the writer's room until they got an end date for the show and had to wrap things up.

Like polar bears perhaps??

OMG! Well, at least he liked the ending!

    Try taking a course on meta physics and you'll understand what Lost was about.

    I honestly don't get why so many people were confused by the show. I watched it all within 2 months and I understood what was going on and what they were doing. It was a smart show and people who didn't expect that and continued to watch may have been confused, but I think plenty of people got what the writers were doing and saying.

    People weren't confused, we felt jipped. So many questions were left unanswered. Part of that was because they basically completely overhauled the writing staff, but even that was a lame excuse, you want to write for a popular show you should know the backstory. Lindelof should have remember and wrapped stuff up. But mainly when the show started and the question was asked "Are the character's in Heaven, Hell, or Purgatory?" he said no, absolutely not. Then the show ends and we find out they are in Purgatory on the way to Heaven. Total WTF, I call bullshit, super lazy ending.

    Jade, they weren't in Purgatory. Everything that happened on the island happened. They really did crash. But their experience on the island and the connections they made are what made them all wait in the flash sideways until they all died, before they could move on, together. The flash sideways was purgatory… Kinda… It was like a waiting room more than purgatory.

    The science-y stuff, ultimately, doesn't matter, because it was an emotional, character based show, and the character stories were all (generally) wrapped up. It was a VERY satisfying ending, you just need to know what the story actually was.

    You should link back to sources.

    I hate when people say that they did not explain the polar bears, because they definitely did.

    The ending of Lost can best be summed up in a quote from T.S. Eliot:

    "This is the way the world ends
    Not with a bang, but a whimper"

    As for Damon Lindelof, he can take his luscious lips and apply them to my posterior, repeatedly.

    omg the polar bears were explained! they came from the Dharma station where jack, sawyer, and kate were held in season three. that's also where the parrots and the sharks came from. people are seriously stupid if they don't think that a lot of the questions were answered, ESPECIALLY the polar bear one! anyway, i loved LOST and miss it, and everything chris said here in the comments i agree with 100% (:

    Perez you're NOT black. Stop using "shiz" as an every day word.
