Matthew Fox explains end of Lost
In an interview with Newsweek in front of a roundtable of Emmy nominees, Matthew Fox gave his view on the finale of Lost, and essentially the entire 6th season:
(spoiler alert, I suppose)
“There are certain religious beliefs, spiritual ideas, that when you die, you have to remember your own death in the moment of your death, you have to remember all the people that brought you to that, all the people that were most important to you, bringing you to that moment,” he tells Newsweek. “And essentially that’s what the entire Sideways was, I believe, in the sixth season. The moment that Jack was dying he was being reunited with all the people that had brought him to his death so he could move on to whatever was next. I thought it was pretty beautiful. Very spiritual. I’m not necessarily a religious person.”
It’s good to know that at least the main actor of Lost believes the finale to not necessarily be purgatory. Which is what I also believe. But again, a lot of it can be semantics and left to interpretation. It still doesn’t change the fact that the final season was a disappointment for me.
Also, Eric Stonestreet (Cameron from Modern Family) is one funny guy. And Bryan Cranston is still the man.
