Lost: Video Tease of “New Man in Charge” Epilogue

New Man in ChargeAccess Hollywood has obtained a 60 second clip of the 12 minute epilogue to Lost. The “New Man in Charge” centers around how Hurley and his “number two,” Ben Linus, run the island. We’ll also reportedly get some closure on Walt’s storyline.

The entire epilogue will be included on the Lost season six DVD set as well as the complete series set. Both are due to be released on August 24th. If you can’t wait, here’s the tease…

    Everything that did happen DID happen – EXCEPT for HALF of season 6.

    All the flash sequences don’t turn out to be from a parallel universe (which would at least constitute some kind of ‘reality’) but happened in a post-afterlife purgatory in which all the characters got together ‘post-mortem’ to remember their lives and ‘move on’.

    It’s a pathetic ending, to be honest, which made me feel like I was watching some crap like ‘Touched by an Angel’ – BAH.

    Not to mention the fact that it left far too many questions unanswered, and the ones they did answer they answered pathetically (why all the numbers – oh, cause “JACOB LIKES NUMBERS’ – wow! Way to go! WHAT an explanation)…

      The numbers were answered quite well actually. They all corresponded to a degree in Jacob’s lighthouse which when turned would reveal the person’s past. Jack was 23 degrees, and Locke was 8 degrees. All of the numbers were linked to the remaining candidates. And those who ended up alive would choose whether they would be the next Jacob. I really don’t know how clearer they could answer that.

      I think the problem is that you weren’t happy with the explanation. That’s all. Honestly, I think the only question that wasn’t really answered satisfactorily was Ilana’s character and what her role was. Everything else was atleast partially answered, and that’s the best you can do when dealing with a show like this. Sometimes something deeply mythological will always get a “why?” even after you answered it.

      Case in point: If you’ve ever seen Star Wars, no one in the movie could adequately describe what the “Force” actually was. It was just there. An energy field or mystical entity. Who knows? We just knew what happened if you manipulated it. But when Qui Gon Jin answered the question that it was just a million cells in a Jedi’s body, how satisfied were you with that answer? Sometimes answers are just disappointing.

      It’s just like the “light” in this show. Scientifically, it is an electromagnetic energy responsibe for the strange happenings on the Island, and possibly resulting in the agelessness of Richard, the time-traveling, the healing powers, and Walt’s supernatural abilities. That’s good enough for me. Describing what it actually is denotes the importance of it.

    can’t believe ANYONE will be interested in this.
    the series finale was such nonsense, why would anyone be interested in the thoughts of a dying man’s delusional last seconds before his death?? (correct me if i misunderstood the series’ conclusion).
    after the horrible outcome of lost i will avoid anything coming from the producers of lost in the future.
