Lost: Jorge Garcia Talks Finale, Epilogue… and Walt’s Fate?

Jorge Garcia finaleIf you’re still hungry for more Lost, Jorge Garcia has confirmed what Michael Emerson recently said about the upcoming DVD sets. An extended extra scene will be included and will show some of what happened between when Hurley became the island’s new protector and the end of the series.

Garcia recently told EOnline’s Kristin Dos Santos, “It will address some of the issues, like the food drops, and it will deal with what happened on the island after Hurley took over and how he handled things… It will give you a taste of what took place after Hurley took over as the new number one. There’s a little epilogue thing going on with the DVD.”

An insider tells Santos that the epilogue will also resolve what became of Walt (Malcolm David Kelley). Garcia would only tease, “There are other people in it, but I’m not going to tell you who.”

Garcia noted that he and Matthew Fox kept going back and forth throughout the final season, thinking one of their characters would end up as the island’s new protector. As it turned out, they were both right.

The actor also shared what he thought about the finale. He said, “I loved it. When I first got the finale script, it didn’t have the final act in it yet. But I got to the part where Hurley takes over and there was a kind of a sigh of relief. I thought OK, this ending is a satisfying ending for me. Everything I invested in this show does pay off. And so I’m good, the ending is good, and I don’t have to worry about it.”

What do you think? Were you surprised who ended up as the island’s new Jacob? Do you hope that Walt is part of the series epilogue?

    Just as a heads up to u all the scene in question WILL be on the season 6 DVD and Blu-Ray. The writer of this article has it wrong. They announced it would be on the season sets like two weeks ago.

    This sounds like an awesome idea: build a world totally arbitrary to the rest of the series in the final season; spend the finale answering questions posed by this so-called “Sideways” world (even though it turned out to be a spiritual flash-forward) and ignoring the mysteries of the previous five seasons; and then force your loyal viewers to pay for the answers that went unresolved by including them in a DVD boxed set! That’s awesome! Turns out that those people who quit watching during season 3 were the smart ones. Now the question is, “Was this the plan from the beginning to capitalize on the devotion we developed to the show?” or are Cuse and Lindelof back pedaling because the finale made it so evident that they created mysteries for the sake of intrigue and never thought them through to conclusion? Lost has proven to me that I should not invest time in serialized entertainment until it runs it course and proves its worth watching on DVD. The only problem is that this means these programs will never have enough viewers to last in the first place.

    The finale was 50% good and 50% crap. The way they ended the story with the characters was solid but not answering the numerous questions about the island was a complete cope out. Please spare me that some viewers need the information spoon fed to them. There are so many vital questions that were not answered and it’s a complete diservice to the fans of the show.

    If the finale would have answered the numerous questions about the island the show would have gone out with a bang and been regarded as one of the best shows of all time. Instead it pissed off 50% of the audience and goes out as a good, not great, show.

    I loved the finale so much. Very happy that Hurley took over for Jack. Hurley was such a lover and so full of life, humor and goodness…a wonderful protector of the light of the world. I’m kinda pissed, though, that the disc is not going to be on the 6th season DVD, only on the boxed set. I don’t think that’s fair to the people who’ve been collecting the DVD’s all along. What am I gonna do, sell my previous 5 seasons on Ebay and buy the set? Not fair to have to do that. Anyway, love ya Jorge and I’m already missing LOST so much, I’ve started over again with the first season already.
