Gossip Girl Season Finale Spoilers, Preview & Recap!

‘Gossip Girl’ Finale: Graduation Day. And Chuck loves…

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

Cast_gossipgirl_240 Tonight on “Gossip Girl,” Rufus and Lily bond over a little Mary J (not Blige), Serena wages war on Gossip Girl, and a mysterious stranger who may or may not be the long-lost offspring of reunited Rufus and Lily transfers to NYU.


Gossip Girl texts everyone during the graduation ceremony as follows: Nate Archibald: class whore, Dan Humphrey: the ultimate insider, Chuck Bass: coward, Blair Waldorf: weakling and as for Serena Van Der Woodsen, after today you are officially irrelevant. Congratulations everyone, you deserve it. Serena vows to take Gossip Girl right the eff out.

The Scooby Gang works out that it’s someone in their class. It took them until graduation to suss that out? Serena texts a fake tip to GG… and little twinky Jonathan’s phone rings. But it turns out Jonathan hacked into GG’s server over spring break, that’s how he gets her text messages. (Why is it always little twinky guys who are named “Jonathan.” Will he get his own alternate-reality episode of GG where he’s a spy and a trumpet player and total pimp?)

At Nate’s party, Dan and Vanessa are all Preston and Denise from “Can’t Hardly Wait.” Blair takes Chuck into a bedroom and stripteases for him, then asks him how he feels about her. Before he can answer, GG texts: Serena Van Der Woodsen just couldn’t leave well enough alone. Since she had to find out the truth about me, I’m going to tell you the truth about everyone. Every gossip bomb I’ve got is about to drop and if you’ve got a problem with that… take it up with her.”

The Gossip Bombs are as follows:
Ever wonder why Miss Carr left town? Dan Humphrey had sex with her during the school play.
The sparks between Humphrey’s sis and Nate during a hot photo session? Thank God it stopped at PG-13, or someone could’ve ended up in jail. Like her brother.
And as for Blair Waldorf, say uncle. We hear she kept it in the Bass family on New Year’s but rumor has it Chuck spent some time in Brooklyn, metaphorically speaking of course.

So Dan slept with a teacher, Jenny fooled around with Nate, Blair hit Jack Bass and Chuck hooked up with Vanessa. Happy graduation everyone! Blair turns against Serena, blaming her for everything. She goes back to Chuck, though, and tells him she loves him, begging him to tell her back. He won’t and Blair cries.

Nate tries to comfort Serena, who thinks everything is ruined because high school is over and everyone hates her. So she texts GG: meet me at the Oak Room or I tell everyone who you are. Nate sits with her at the Oak Room, then Dan shows up. She confesses that she doesn’t want to be irrelevant and he reassures her that she won’t be. As the entire senior class shows up, GG texts them all that she’s coming with them to college. Blair and Serena make up, as Chuck watches from outside, looking sad.

Queen B Search
Blair’s minions are choosing a new head Mean Girl at midnight, giving it to whomever brings the best piece of gossip to them at Nate’s party. New girl Emma Boardman (who lives on Park Avenue) wants the title. Once Jonathan reveals his access to GG’s server, Jenny and Eric find a piece of gossip that she thinks would crush Emma Boardman for new Queen B but doesn’t think she can use it because it’s about Blair’s New Year’s activities.

When Jenny tries to warn Blair that GG knows, Blair blows her off so Jenny turns right around and tells the Mean Girls what she found out. Unfortunately, GG texts her Gossip Bombs before Jenny can spill the beans. Emma smirks. Is Emma Gossip Girl? Blair tells Jenny the gossip about her and Chuck, but Jenny turns it down. Blair says Jenny is her queen and that she needs to look out for herself.

Rufus and Lily’s Excellent Adventure
Lily doesn’t want to have much to do with Rufus now that he no longer wants to marry her. Women are funny that way. However, Lily gets down-in-the-mouth about her daughter graduating high school and feeling old, so she surprises Rufus with beer and weed. Excellent. They get high and he proposes with a tape measure for a ring.

One Week Later
Rufus and Lily are happy, Eric and Jenny unpack their stuff. Blair gives Serena her mug shot in a frame, snerk, and they hug. Dan, Vanessa and Nate have coffee and Nate says the Deputy Mayor made a pass at him, so he’s going backpacking with Vanessa instead of working for the Mayor.

Blair crashes the coronation of Emma as Queen in order to bestow the crown to Jenny, who told GG all the secrets she was keeping about Nelly.

Dan meets a new NYU transfer named Scott, who is from Oregon and possibly the long-lost child of Lily and Rufus. Georgina calls to tell Dan that his money is back in his bank account, not to worry about Poppy and that she’ll see him at NYU next year. Georgina then requests Blair for a roommate. Exxxxxcellent.

Serena runs into Carter on her way out of town and he tells her that he found her father. In Fiji. She invites him along in the limo.

Chuck then surprises Blair with her favorite macaroons from Paris and favorite stockings from Germany. He says he was a coward and that he had to come back for her. Blair says she can’t believe him because he’s hurt her so much, but he insists that she can believe him this time. He then says, “I love you too” and they smooch. Awwww!

What did you guys think? Excellent finale, I thought. I can’t wait to see all our favorite Upper East Siders in college.

Some random spoilers about the finale that may or may not all be true!

Dan will be accused of being Gossip Girl

Both Blair & Jack’s and Chuck and Vanessa hook-ups will be expose.

Lost Season 6 Spoilers: ‘Destiny Found’ The Final Season! How it all Ends!

Is this Italian site posting the real series finale script pages?

Breaking News – Lost Series Finale Extended by 30 Mins

Get ready for more “Lost.”

The producers of ABC’s hit drama have shot so much crucial material for the show’s hugely anticipated finale that the network has agreed to extend the last episode by an extra half hour.

When the “Lost” finale airs on Sunday, May 23rd, the episode will run from 9 to 11:30 p.m. The overrun will air instead of the local news, with the “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to Lost” post-finale special remaining at 11:30 p.m. ABC is expected to announce the plan on tonight’s episode of Kimmel.

Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof just completed post-production on the finale” — on Monday night. Both sent out identical Tweets: “We’re done. Amen.”

The supersizing of the finale is the latest adjustment to what might as well be called “The ‘Lost’ Weekend.” ABC is airing an “enhanced” (pop-ups) version of the show’s original two-hour pilot on May 22. On Sunday there’s a two-hour retrospective titled “Lost: The Final Journey,” followed by the finale and Kimmel post-show.

Episode 6.15 – Across The Sea – Latest from TV Guide Magazine

What’s The West Wing’s C.J. doing on the May 11 episode of Lost? No one’s officially saying anything about Emmy winner Allison Janney’s mystery character (identified only as ‘Woman’), though online speculation has it that she may be playing the mother of Mark Pellegrino’s Jacob or Titus Welliver’s Man in Black – two of the few recognizable faces in this trippy third-to-last installment titled, “Across the Sea.”

“She’s incredible, but we can’t give away who she’s playing,” says executive producer Damon Lindelof, confirming only that Allison’s role is a major one. “We will confirm that she will be a woman.” (Dang, there goes my big island tranny creation theory.)

Fellow executive producer Carlton Cuse adds, “We were so happy that she was able to do this. It was really hard for her because she was getting ready to shoot a pilot, but she squeezed us in. Then once we saw her in this part we were like, ‘How could anyone else have done this but Allison Janney?”

“In fact,” adds Lindelof, “we’ve been talking about this character for awhile and how nervous we were that we wouldn’t find the right actress. When we first started talking about this character in the writers room we called her ‘Allison Janney’ under the assumption that we wouldn’t be able to get her.”

But the two EPs got on the phone with Allison and had “a lovely conversation,” tells Lindelof. “She’d seen enough of the show to ‘get’ it, but wasn’t completely dialed in. So we explained the part and said it was as close to writing a role for a particular person as we’d ever done. And she moved heaven and earth to go down to Hawaii for eight days.”

Cuse says the mystery role required “incredible presence,” which Allison demonstrated on her long-running NBC drama. “She had so much presence in The West Wing,” he recalls. “She was in charge and had the strength we needed.”

Hmmm… So, since my tranny creation theory’s out the window, might it be possible that Janney’s character was sent to the island on official business by… Martin Sheen’s President Bartlet? Not even in a flash-sideways!

Preview of ‘Lost’ Season 6: Destiny Found

Source: Ace Showbiz TV News
An eye opens in a sudden, in the teaser for ‘Lost’ season 6 which will be the final round for the whole island’s mystery.

Preview of 'Lost' Season 6: Destiny Found See larger image” has ended its fifth season run on Wednesday, May 13 with a cliffhanger when Juliet was sucked into the hole and woke up with the bomb near her. She hit the bomb with a rock and it was the end of the episode. To keep fans in excitement, ABC has posted a very short sneak peek of the 6th season where an aye opens up in shock. No clue to who the green eye belongs to. In the preview also, it is revealed that the big idea is “Destiny Found” and it could as well be the ultimate reason why they are all stranded on the island in the first place, not the kind of destiny that each of the characters thought. The new season will begin in 2010, reportedly in January. Meanwhile, a few thoughts on the sixth season had been thrown in recent weeks and here is the summary. Likely to be back for another round are Ben, Juliet and Claire. Regarding Ben’s return, Michael Emerson who plays the character said that Ben’s work is not done in the season finale but he is also still crossing fingers for it because nothing is set in stone in “Lost”. Juliet’s comeback was teased by EW with no other details while Claire’s involvement was suggested by Carlton Cuse. “Claire is a wonderful part of the show and the audience can rest assured that they will see (her) again on Lost,” Cuse said. For one thing, the sixth season will be the final season for the series. Creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have planned the whole story to conclude in the 6th year, with the story coming to full circle. “Season six will feel a lot like season one,” Lindelof teased. “The focus comes back to the characters with whom we began. We’ve been winnowing away everyone else who came along. The Tailies are gone, only Miles is left of the Freighter Folk and only Juliet is left of The Others. We’re getting down to the end now.”

Matthew Fox Tells Us How Lost Ends (and How Season Six Begins)

Source: Kristin on E!Online

Matthew Fox says Lost creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse will prove they knew where they were going all along when the show ends in “an incredibly powerful, very sad and beautiful way. I think is going to be pretty awesome.”

The only castmember to know what that crazy smoke monster is and how the show ends said, “I think it is going to be very satisfying and cathartic and redemptive and beautiful. I’ve talked to Damon pretty extensively and every time I talk to him it’s sort of surprising how moving it is just to talk about it.”

But before we get the very end of our adventure, Fox exclusively reveals to us the beginning of Lost season six…

The sixth season will begin with an examination of what happened after Juliet seemingly detonated the hydrogen bomb. As usual, Fox says, “It’s very surprising and probably fairly confusing initially to the audience.”

“Like a third of the way in [to the season] I would guess we are going to [settle] in one time frame and it will be very linear—no more flashbacks, nothing. It will be on the island and sort of a final conflict to the end,” say Fox.

He assured fans that all the crazy storylines introduced in earlier seasons will be resolved, and said that the conflict between Jack and Locke (Terry O’Quinn) “will come head to head” this season, but wouldn’t divulge more than that. When asked what would happen if he did, he said, “Some guys would pull up outside this building in a white van and masks and I’d never be seen again.”

At the 35th Annual Saturn Awards in Burbank, Calif., we asked Lost‘s Michael Emerson how Ben (who once crushed hard on Juliet) would react to the news that she had nuked herself, and Emerson said: “Ben’s no longer in a position to entertain romantic notions. I don’t think there’s room for romance in Ben’s world right now. As much as he admires her on a lot of levels, I don’t think he can do anything about it.” We also asked, on a scale of one to 10, how he would rate Elizabeth Mitchell‘s awesomeness? “It would be a number higher than 10.” Word.
The best we can offer you on this fine afternoon is Lost show runner Carlton Cuse saying nothing about Lost at the Saturn Awards, but saying it darn well:

Watch With Kristin: How much of the speculation on the Internet about Lost season six is correct? Give us a percentage.
Carlton Cuse:
I’m not really good at math, so no speculation about that.

WWK: You’re the best stonewaller ever.
This is what we like to call stonewalling season, where we try to preserve radio silence—but we’ll be coming out of Comic-Con with some cool things, I think, so we’re excited about that.

WWK: There is one very important question.

WWK: Can you get Josh Holloway to come to Comic-Con?
Mmmm…That’s a good idea, which I will pitch to the appropriate parties. Josh is great. We would love it if Josh would come.

WWK: And here’s a question you’re not going to answer. Season one: Jack’s the most important person ever. Season four: Ben’s the key to everything. Season five: Jacob. If you had to pick a character who was the most central to what Lost is in the end, who would it be?
You’re right, I’m not going to answer that.

1. We tried.
2. Tell Holloway in the comments that he should appear on Lost‘s final Comic-Con panel.

Upcoming Episode Spoilers – Some Big Ones

Hurley speaks to someone very close to Richard’s past and conveys this person’s message to Richard. Definite tearjerker on par with when we first meet Bernand and he finds out Rose is okay in season 2.
– Man in Black has a true nemesis – and it’s not Jacob.
-“Happily Ever After” marks Desmond’s full return – his centric episode as well. His “flash-sideways” feature Charlie, Daniel, Penny, Mommy, Jack, Widmore, and Claire. Widmore and Desmond share some of that famous scotch. Des has to make a very, very big sacrifice.
– “Everybody Loves Hugo” marks the return of Libby and Michael. Michael is a ghost on island and Libby and Hurley date in his “flash-sideways.” Locke gets run over. Man can’t catch a break, can he?

Widmore, Ben, Locke, Jacob, Man in Black… will we ever find out who the good guys really are on Lost?
MICKEY: We asked Josh Holloway, who portrays Sawyer, one ethically complicated dude, what he thinks. “I think the whole beauty of this show and the intrigue has been the constant question of what is good and what is bad and what is right or wrong,” he says. “That is the entire crux of the show, so no, you’re never going to get a clear picture. You’re going to be left with that question to answer for yourself.” Next you’ll be telling me the numbers are just… numbers!

Latest from DocJensen – Damon and Carlton Answers

EW: The whole idea of flash-sideways and the plan to use season 6 to show us a world where Oceanic 815 never crashed — how long has that been in the works? Why did you want to do it?
DAMON LINDELOF: It’s been in play for at least a couple of years. We knew that the ending of the time travel season was going to be an attempt to reboot. And as a result, we [knew] the audience was going to come out of the “do-over moment” thinking we were either going start over or just say it didn’t work and continue on. [We thought] wouldn’t it be great if we did both? That was the origin of the story.
CARLTON CUSE: We thought just doing one [of those options] would inherently not be satisfying. Since the very beginning of the show, characters started crossing through each other’s stories. Part of our desire [in season 6] is to show that there’s still this kind of weave, that these characters still would have impacted each other’s lives even without the event of crashing on the Island. Obviously, the big question of the season is going to be: How do these [two timelines] reconcile? However, for the fans who have not watched the show closely, that’s an intact narrative. You can just watch the flash sideways — they stand alone all by themselves. For the fans who are more deeply embedded in the show, you can watch those flash sideways, compare them to what transpired in the flashbacks and go, “Oh, that’s an interesting difference.”
LINDELOF: Right out of the gate, in the first five minutes of the premiere, you get hit over the head with two things that you’re not expecting. The first is that Desmond is on the plane. The second thing that we do is we drop out of the plane and we go below the water and we see that the Island is submerged. What we’re trying to do there is basically say to you, “God bless the survivors of Oceanic 815, because they’re so self-centered, they thought the only effect [of detonating the bomb] was going to be that their plane never crashes.” But they don’t stop to think, “If we do this in 1977, what else is going to affected by this?” So that their entire lives can be changed radically. In fact, it would appear that they’ve sunken the Island. That’s our way of saying, “Keep your eyes peeled for the differences that you’re not expecting.” Some of these characters were still in Australia, but some weren’t. Shannon’s not there. Boone actually says that he tried to get her back. There are all sorts of other people that we don’t see. Where’s Libby? Where’s Ana Lucia? Where’s Eko? These are all the things that you’re supposed to be thinking about. When our characters posited the “What if?” scenario, they neglected to think about what the other effects of potentially changing time might be and we’re embracing those things.

That said, are you saying definitively that detonating Jughead was the event that created this new timeline? Or is that a mystery which the season 6 story will reveal?

LINDELOF: It’s a mystery. A big one.
CUSE: We did have some concern that it might be confusing kind of going into the season. To clear that up a little bit: The archetypes of the characters are the same and that’s the most significant thing. Kate is still a fugitive. If you were to look at the Comic-Con video, for instance, that now comes into play. There was a different scenario in that story. She basically blew up an apprentice plumber as opposed to killing her biological father/stepfather. Those kind of differences exist, but who the characters fundamentally are is the same. If it becomes too confusing for you, you can just follow the flash sideways for what they are. It’s not as though there’s narrative that hangs on the fact that you need to know that this event was different in that world, in the flashback world versus the sideways world. That’s not critical for being able to process the narrative this season.

Is there a relationship between Island reality and sideways reality? Will they run parallel for the remainder of the season? Will they fuse together? Might one fade away?

LINDELOF: For us, the big risk that we’re taking in the final season of the show is basically this very question. [Lindelof then explains the show has replaced the trademark “whoosh!” sound effect marking the segue between Island present story and flashbacks or flash-forwards, thus calling conspicuous attention to the relationship between the Island world and the Sideways world.] This is the critical mystery of the season, which is, “What is the relationship between these two shows?” And we don’t use the phrase “alternate reality,” because to call one of them an “alternate reality” is to infer that one of them isn’t real, or one of them is real and the other is the alternate to being real.
CUSE: But the questions you’re asking are exactly the right questions. What are we to make of the fact that they’re showing us two different timelines? Are they going to resolve? Are they going to connect? Are they going to co-exist in parallel fashion? Are they going to cross? Do they intersect? Does one prove to be viable and the other one not? I think those are all the kind of speculations that are the right speculations to be having at this point in the season.

LINDELOF: But it is going to require patience. We’ve taught the audience how to be patient thus far, so while they’re getting a lot of mythological answers on the island early in the season, this idea of what is the relationship between the two [worlds] is a little bit more of a slow burn.

Did Jughead really sink the Island? And is it possible that the Sideways characters are now caught in a time loop in which they might have to go back in time and fulfill the obligation to continuity by detonating the bomb?

LINDELOF: These questions will be dealt with on the show. Should you infer that the detonation of Jughead is what sunk the island? Who knows? But there’s the Foot. What do you get when you see that shot? It looks like New Otherton got built. These little clues [might help you] extrapolate when the Island may have sunk. Start to think about it. A couple of episodes down the road, some of the characters might even discuss it. We will say this: season 6 is not about time travel. It’s about the implications, the aftermath, and the causality of trying to change the past. But the idea of continuing to do paradoxical storytelling is not what we’re interested in this year.

Next Week Will Blow You Away: After you see the final 10 minutes of next week’s episode, it will become increasingly clear what the entire final season of Lost is leading up to. (I smell a war coming on!)
Get Ready for Two Surprising Reappearances: (1) A certain someone you thought was dead will be back, and how he or she returns, and what it means for the future of the other Losties on the island, will have your brain spinning. (2) Someone else appears in Los Angeles next week that I did not know was returning at all, and it’s awesome.
There Will Be Some Shipper Moments Next Week: Kate will have a tender moment with Jack, and she’ll also have a revealing moment with Sawyer, and there will definitely be some clear indication as to where the romantic storylines (or lack thereof) will be heading this season.
Richard Alpert Was a Slave?! The SMIB mentioned that Richard was in chains. There has long been talk that crew of the Black Rock (allegedly a mining vessel) were slaves, and when we’ve visited the ship in the past, skeletons were found shackled together. So was Alpert on the Black Rock? The good news is we will find out. Nestor Carbonell tells me: “You’re going to get all your answers: Why doesn’t he age? Where’s he from? What his powers might be? Who he is? And there is one specific episode that deals with all of that. I was blown away by what they wrote.” Can. Not. Wait.

Kristin’s Red Carpet Interviews from the Premiere Party.

television at its very best. It is, as they say, a There is at least one moment that will make you shriek out loud in tonight’s two-hour Lost premiere, which is “game-changer.”

So what else is in store for this groundbreaking series’ final season? What about Walt? The Smoke Monster? Claire’s relation to Jack? I just chatted up the entire cast and show masterminds Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, and without giving away anything too spoilery (what’s the fun in that?), here’s what you absolutely need to know…

Will We See the Man in Black Again? Smokey? Jacob? Find out in the video above in the fun little game of “False, True or Hell No, I Won’t Tell You” that I played with some of the cast and producers. (I got much more scoop from them but it needs to hold til after the premiere so stand by for that.)

The Premiere Rocks. I’ll say it again: Tonight’s two-hour premiere is my favorite episode since Lost’s groundbreaking pilot five years ago. The show is instantly broader and more meaningful than it was before. It’s as if the fate of the whole world now depends on what is happening on this island…

There Will Be Answers. “Exactly 73 questions will be answered in the final season,” boss Carlton Cuse tells me, and naturally, he’s joking. “We’re going to answer the questions that matter to our characters,” Damon says in all seriousness. “If they care about it, then we’re going to answer it. If it affects their lives, than we’re going to deal with it.”

There Will Be Family Matters. Urkel is guest starring! I keed. When asked if Claire (Emilie de Ravin) will find out Jack is her brother, Matthew Fox tells me, “Yes, I think you’ll get an opportunity to see that.” And here’s my favorite tease from Michael Emerson (Ben) about the final season: “In the 13 episodes [we’ve shot so far], huge chucks of the puzzle have fallen into place. Some quite shocking, and some really satisfying. Some of those puzzle pieces answer whole families of questions. So the audience can have hope for resolution and satisfaction.” When asked if he specifically chose the word “families” for a particular reason, Emerson says knowingly: “You know that nothing is accidental with Lost.” Chills, meet spine.

What About Walt? Though Damon and Carlton say there are no current plans to bring Malcom David Kelley (Walt) back, his onscreen father is hopeful. “I’m hoping he’s the next leader of the island,” Harold Perrineau (Michael) tells me. “He starts it all over again. In 2012, Lost is back with Malcolm. He’s 20 feet tall now and can kick my ass.”

Sayid Might Be OK. His character was shot in the stomach when we last saw him, but as Naveen Andrews says in the clip above, “Lots of people have been in dire situations, right? And somehow, some way they pull through.”
The Very End Will Satisfy Some of You. “The ending we promise you will be very emotional,” Carlton explains. “That’s what we think matters, what happens to the characters.

The Premiere Was Leaked. In case you didn’t hear, the premiere episode was leaked on YouTube via fan videos taken at Sunday’s Hawaii beach event, but here’s the truly incredible thing: Very few of you have actually clicked to watch it (many vidoes received only a few hundred hits), recognizing that you didn’t wait all this time to watch some lame shaky FlipCam version of this visually inspiring series. And that is why I heart you.

Just Wait Till You See Next Week’s Episode. More on that in tonight’s first Lost Redux (should be posted about 10 pm ET/7 pm PT), but I now know what’s in store for next week and in all seriousness could not sleep last night thinking about all the ramifications of it. It will be an entirely different series with an entirely different framework after the end of next Tuesday’s episode.

Why I’m Not Saying More Till You See It: As Daniel Dae Kim puts it, “Because people have waited so long for answers, and because they’re coming out, it’s probably best to be a little more tight-lipped than usual.” Wise words from a guy I adore, so I’m heeding ’em.
That said, I would absolutely love to meet any of you who are interested in “watching” the premiere with me in the comments section below tonight from 8 to 10 pm ET (sorry, West Coasters, but you can read the exchange afterward?). Join me if you’d like, and I’ll answer the questions I can?If you promise to hold me tight when Terry O’Quinn’s big moment is revealed.

TV Guide’s 13 Questions with Damon and Carlton

TVGuide.com: Is the reset going to be a theme of this season or are you playing with the audience?
Cuse: I think it wouldn’t be Lost if we weren’t playing with the audience a little bit, but by the end of the premiere, you’ll have a sense of what we’re doing. We’re still doing the same thing we’ve always done on the show, which is island storytelling and off-island storytelling. It just now starts to take on a different form in the final season. Like every season, each season is a distinct entity, so by the end of the premiere, you should have a sense of what Season 6 is shaping up to be like.

TVGuide.com: Michael Emerson said instead of storylines coming together, the threads keep spreading out. Do you feel like everything will come together at the end or will it keep spreading?

Cuse: I’m not sure I agree with Michael. He might have been toying with you, because we do feel like there’s a certain circularity to the show. In the same way that the show started, we’re going to come back around to some of the main characters from the first season of the show. To us, the most important thing is, what are these character’s destinies? What are their fates? What’s going to happen to them? Those are the questions we’re really interested in answering. Along the way, we’re going to tackle some of the mythological biggies, like what’s the smoke monster? You’ll learn more about the nature of the island. You’ll learn more about Jacob and the Man in Black. Those are the things we feel are important as opposed to what kind of research was the Dharma Initiative doing on polar bears.

TVGuide.com: Will there be more on the numbers or will that never really be answered?
Cuse: There is definitely more about the numbers in Season 6. I think it will be an individual decision as to whether you’ll walk away satisfied by the answer because there’s a fundamental conundrum where any question begets another question. It’s the Big Bang conundrum. The universe started with the Big Bang, but once you accept that you ask what came before the Big Bang. So at a certain point you can’t definitively answer a question in a way that doesn’t lead to other questions. Everyone is going to have to find their comfort level with the show.

TVGuide.com: Will the final season be no holds barred? Can anyone die?
Cuse: The mantra of the final season in a certain way is, “Anything can happen, be prepared.” We are nearing the end, so if there are any constraints that govern a series, they really go away in the final season. We always felt like Lost was at its best when it was really surprising. We did things that were unexpected. We do have a few surprises up our sleeves for this season, which we think are really exciting.

TVGuide.com: You already know who is going to die in the end?
Cuse: Yes, we have our game plan for how the season will end. Significant discisions like that have definitely been resolved by now. We’re still writing the scripts, but we, ourselves, know the fates of the characters.

TVGuide.com: What can you say of the Man in Black?
Cuse: People who are curious about the Man in Black will get more answers this season for sure. We recognize that that character is mysterious and cryptic and we promise that we will give you more details about who he is.

TVGuide.com: Is Jacob really dead?
Cuse: Is Jacob really dead? Yeah, I mean we’ve always said that when characters die on Lost they die. He was stabbed, he was dead. Of course, dead characters show up in other incarnations. We have a narrative structure of our show which allows us to have our cake and eat it too. Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean we don’t see you on the show, but was Jacob killed by Ben? The answer is yes.

TVGuide.com: Yes, and Harold Perrineau is among those who’s back despite being dead.
Cuse: Yeah, and he’s back on the show this year, so you’ll see Harold on the show and that’s really exciting for us, but he did die on the freighter.

TVGuide.com: Is Kate going to end up with Jack or Sawyer or end up alone?
Cuse: Well, we know what’s going to happen to her, but we’re not going to tip what’s happening to her. But we definitely know what the resolutions of the characters are and we know that people care a lot about the Kate, Jack, Sawyer, Juliet quadrangle and that will be something that you’ll definitely get some resolution on this season.
Lindelof: And I think it’s great that you actually present that Kate might end up alone as an option, because a lot of people say, “Is it going to be Jack or is it going to be Sawyer?” But that presupposes way too many things that they’re not fully aware of in the final season. So there may be a couple of other options that are in play that people aren’t considering yet.

In the third episode, titled “What Kate Does,” Kate and Claire share a cab and their destination is the house of the couple who are set to adopt Aaron.

Separately, there’s a scene with Jin working in a hotel, and Sun was there too. Also filming in the same location was a Keamy/Omar scene, and Mikhail was there and spoke Korean.

Titus Welliver: Lost‘s Season-Ending Mystery Isn’t Black and White

Source: TV Guide Online

Titus Welliver probably thought he had seen it all during his run as Deadwood resident Silas Adams. But then he appeared on Lost for all of 1 minute and 45 seconds, and in short order his world — as well as that of the ABC drama — shifted forever. Who was this mysterious “man in black” taunting Jacob on the beach in the Season 5 finale prologue? What did he mean with the observation, “They come. Fight. They destroy. They corrupt. It always ends the same”? And why did this “Man No. 2” so desperately want to find the loophole necessary to one day kill Jacob? Review our round-up of season-finale cliffhangers Welliver, who now has a recurring role on CBS’ The Good Wife (premiering Sept. 22), shared a look inside the far-from-black-and-white nature of his Lost visit.

TVGuide.com: How does it feel to be dropped into the zeitgeist that is Lost?
Titus Welliver:
It’s pretty insane. It’s pretty insane. This is a completely different thing for me. At the street level, it has been crazy. People — from all walks of life — come up and say, “Now, you possessed Locke…?” “Are you in fact Locke?” “Has the character of Locke been created from you, and this was a whole setup to crash the plane?”

TVGuide.com: The funny thing is they can only refer to you as “you,” because they didn’t give your character a name. By what name did you know him?
He has no name. He’s just “the man,” because they don’t want to give anything away. I know that this character has a name and I know the importance of it; that’s all that I know.

TVGuide.com: So you don’t know his actual name?
No — and I think they deliberately withheld that.

TVGuide.com: Were you only given the script pages for your scene?
No, I got a whole script. But the thing is, unless you’re watching the show weekly, you’ve no bloody idea what’s going on. It’s not a show that you can just drop into the middle of. I had watched Lost during the first season, but then life and children sort of prevent one from being able to consistently stay with something.

Fall TV grid: See what’s on and when

TVGuide.com: Did the producers give you any notes on what the dynamic should be between you and Mark Pellegrino‘s Jacob?
Liz Sarnoff, one of the writers on the show, is actually an old colleague from a show that we did with David Milch, Big Apple, and from Deadwood. Her explanation was that Jacob sees man as being a flawed creature, but that there is always hope, whereas my character has a much more cynical but in some ways realistic view of man. She said, “Now extrapolate from that what you will. Are they waxing philosophical? Are they gods?” What occurs to me as I watch Locke mention the loophole and pitch Jacob into the fire is, “Clearly this other man on the beach has inhabited Locke on some level” — and it never suspends your belief simply because of how intricate the mysterious nature of the show is. You never say, “Aw, c’mon.” I find it interesting that the audience completely buys into what [the writers] put in front of them.

TVGuide.com: Fans have all sorts of theories on the Jacob-Man No. 2 relationship. Some see the obvious parallels with the Bible’s Jacob and Esau, but there are also a wealth of Egyptian comparisons…
Yeah, the Esau thing seems to dominate the extrapolating conversations. People on the subway say, “Are you Esau?” The interactions are that random.

TVGuide.com: Do you think it’s as simple as one of these guys is good and the other evil?
The way that I interpreted it, on a biblical level, is that it’s a sort of Cain-and-Abel scenario. So by destroying Jacob, what does that prove — that [the man in black] can ultimately have power over the island? Do the castaways become solely his playthings? And why was it so important that he find the loophole to be able to kill Jacob? That moved me in the direction of thinking that if he needs this loophole, there’s a greater power than the two of them that they’re answering to.

TVGuide.com: Right, someone had to establish that loophole. Some giant, cosmic lawyer.
[Laughs] Exactly. What [the producers] said to me was, “No hand-wringing” — and I said, “Certainly not,” I didn’t want to do the Snidely Whiplash thing — “and understand that this is kind of a chess game,” hence the fact that one’s in black and one’s in white. But are they part of the chess game… or are they the players?

TVGuide.com: It seems like Jacob could have one last ace up his sleeve, as evidenced by him saying before dying, “They’re coming.” He may have put one final countermeasure in place.
Oh, yeah. Somebody asked me about that — “Is your character going to just take over?” — and of course I don’t have the answer. But as a viewer I think, “It can’t be that easy to get rid of Jacob.”

Michael Emerson Talks About Season 6 and Jacob

Anyways do you have any more Lost scoop? Ausiello: May’s series finale is going to be a real downer, predicts Michael Emerson. “I don’t think Lost will have a happy ending,” he confessed to us at the Saturn Awards. “It’s the end and I think we are going to start seeing more casualties. I would put money on major characters being killed. I believe it will be a sad ending to the show — or at least bittersweet. I think it will definitely be a series finale for grownups.” Emerson, meanwhile, is still trying to make sense of the season 5 finale. (Join the club!) “I killed Jacob… maybe… probably,” he hedged. “It isn’t like we haven’t seen plenty of other people be killed and somehow come back. And what does it mean if I did kill him? I Who the hell was he anyway? Obviously, Ben wanted a father. So much of our show is about bad fathers. It is one of our biggest themes. And Jacob disappointed in those final moments. And maybe Jacob made it easy for him. Maybe that was all meant to happen. Is it all ordained? Maybe. And for that matter, can Jacob even be killed? Stay tuned is my response.” Source: EW

Latest on Potential Return of Dead Losties in Season 6

The exec producer of Ian Somerhalder’s new CW series, The Vampire Diaries, is close friends with Lost exec producer Damon Lindelof. So when he’s not sucking blood in the South, Ian may reappear on the island as Boone. While apartment hunting in Atlanta, where Diaries shoots, with his new on-screen vampire brother Paul Wesley, Ian tells me, “I’ve heard a little bit about what’s happening this season on Lost, and there’s definitely an avenue they’re going down to bring back a lot of us.” Any crossover [with] Lost would “only help the success of our show…as long as it’s not screwing up production,” Ian says. So what if Boone, Shannon, Charlie and the rest of Lost’s “living dead” turn out to be vampires? “That would not be good,” says the actor, who currently lives around the corner from Maggie Grace (Shannon) in Venice Beach. “There are already enough vampires flying around the airwaves. If we can keep it at True Blood, Twilight and Vampire Diaries, the world will be better off!” Source: TV Guide

Latest from TV Guide Magazine

“What the hell’s going on with Lost? I don’t think they know. I think from week to week they go, ‘Let’s do this.’ And then someone else says, ‘No, this would be a good idea.’ I love that show, but I don’t think they know what they’re doing.” —Ellen DeGeneres

“I am flattered that Ellen is a fan of our show,” says exec producer Carlton Cuse, who promises Ellen there is a master plan, with some sweet payoffs, if she sticks through the final season. Dominic Monaghan recently had a secret breakfast meeting with producer Damon Lindelof to discuss how he might manage returning to Lost as Charlie. “We would like there to be some visitations from people we’ve loved over time,” Cuse says. Michael Emerson, who plays Ben, confirms, “The final season will resemble the first. I know there are plans for big people we have parted company with to reappear.” But one crucial component from the very first pilot episode will most likely be absent from the reunion: cocreator J.J. Abrams, who tells me he won’t be returning to Hawaii to direct the series finale. “I would selfishly love it,” he says, “but director Jack Bender has been living in Hawaii for years and doing amazing work. For me to come in and direct the finale would be cruel and unusual.”

Any word on Mark Pellegrino being on Lost next season, or is Jacob really dead? We posed that question to Michael Emerson who claims he doesn’t know the fate of Jacob, but since Ben was the one to stab him, we don’t quite believe him. “I have no idea, honestly, I wonder. I can’t wait to see that next script,” he says. The cast of Lost goes back to Hawaii in the middle of August to shoot the final season, and Michael is really looking forward to it: “It’s certainly bittersweet, but it’s sort of exciting to know that they’re not going to string it out. They are going to end that sucker in 17 episodes. I can’t wait to see how they do it.” We can’t either! Source: Kristin on E!Online

I was so happy to hear about Charlie, Shannon and Claire returning to Lost next season, and then so bummed to find out that nothing except Claire is for sure yet. What’s the current status of various dead castmembers returning to Lost? Even though Dominic Monaghan is said to be appearing on another ABC show next season, reportedly Flash Forward, we’re just paranoid enough to think it might be a double cross, and that D.M. might actually be heading back to Lost after (or in addition to) whatever else he does on the Alphabet Net. Why do we think this? Because very reliable sources now tell us that there is “mutual interest” (between the Lost PTB and Dominic Monaghan) in bringing about a season-six return visit by Charlie Pace. Look for official developments in the next week or two. Source: E!Online


Question: I miss Claire on Lost. Emilie de Ravin is such a great actress. Will she be back for all of next season?
Yes! After sitting out last season, de Ravin will return as a full-time series regular for Lost‘s sixth and final season, Team Darlton confirms. “Damon and I are very excited to bring Claire back to the show,” says Carlton Cuse, “and even more excited for people to experience just how she will return.” And even more exciting that that? Experiencing Doc Jensen’s theory on how she’ll return. Take it away, DJ:

“Any scenario that brings Claire back to Lost must address the mysterious circumstances of her disappearance at the end of season 4, in which many of us were led to believe that she was as dead — or rather, undead — as the Ghost Christian that’s been haunting The Island since season 1. So here’s one thought: Juliet changed time in the season finale by detonating Jughead, and season 6 will tell the story of the new timeline, one in which Claire is alive. Another thought: In light of the revelation that John Locke was actually a supernatural impostor for half of season 5, perhaps in season 6, we’ll get a storyline in which Claire just emerges out of the jungle, with no memory of what happened to her — just like season 1 — and we and the castaways will be left to wonder: Is this the real Claire or another impostor infiltrating them a la Locke? Heck, maybe that’s going to be the major idea of next season: Who’s really alive and who’s really (un)dead? It really will be the fabled zombie season of Lost!”  Source: The Ausiello Files

Spoiler alert: ‘Lost’ mystery solved!

Source: The Ausiello Files

How very sneaky of you, ABC. Dominic Monaghan appearing in ABC’s new promo campaign has nothing whatsoever to do with Charlie being resurrected on Lost next season. But that’s exactly what the network wants folks to think. Why? Because they’re trying to keep under wraps the real reason he was playing table soccer with Patrick Dempsey, Courteney Cox, and Ed O’Neill in that clip. This is the part where I warn you of an incoming spoiler and give you one last chance to bail before continuing on… Okay, here it goes: The real reason Monaghan is featured in that cheeky spot is because he’s actually joining the cast of another hour-long ABC drama series as a full-time series regular. And the net’s brass want it to be a surprise. A big surprise. But don’t let that stop you from posting your theories in the comments section. Which ABC show do you think Monaghan is joining full time? And what character do you think he’ll be playing? Speculate away!

‘Lost’ scoop: Juliet mystery (sort of) solved

And now for some news that should surprise no one: ABC is expected to announce tomorrow that it has picked up a reboot of the camptastic ’80s thriller V and that Lost heroine Elizabeth Mitchell is a full-time castmember. Translation: She will not be returning to Lost as a series regular. However, before you go declaring Juliet DOA from last week’s detonated hydrogen bomb, I should point out that this piece of scoop comes with a big but attached: Mitchell’s Lost days are not done. Multiple sources confirm that the actress is expected to appear in an unspecified number of episodes next season, so it’s entirely possible Juliet survived Jughead and her absence will be explained in another way.

Ghost Whisperer Episode Recap 4.23 ‘The Book of Changes’

‘Ghost Whisperer’: Melinda’s death on 2509

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

The finale was good, but it left us with no cliffhangers, and a timeline that was unrealistic, if would be impossible for Melinda’s due date to be September 25, if Jim died on November 7, that’s nearly an 11 month pregnancy! The baby should have been due in July….

This week on “Ghost Whisperer,” we have a creepy sort-of prophecy about Melinda’s due date and her baby, a little girl running around with no face, and a wedding in the street.


Mystery of the Week
Melinda keeps having dreams that she gives birth to a bassinet full of hairless cats. Yikes. Then Melinda sees a little girl with a melty, no-features face in her house. The little girl tries to show her an old, leather book and keeps giggling. Funny how sometimes children’s laughter is so precious and sometimes it’s freak-me-the-eff-out scary. Later, Melinda runs into the faceless child again, who puts her hand on Melinda’s belly and says, “You can’t save her. You can’t.” Jim tries to reassure her that it’s not about the baby and then spills the beans that they’re having a boy, so it can’t be about the baby. Awww.

The old book the little girl was holding turns out to be from the school’s Von Drake collection. It is stolen by a local thief (who is actually being controlled by Carl the Watcher) and given to Zoe Ramos to protect, only Zoe is so surprised by the thief in her house that she falls down the stairs and dies.

Zoe’s spirit hangs around to get Eli to protect the book because there is a man named Jeremy Bishop trying to find it too. He won’t say who he’s working for but he is clearly a bad dude. The book is called The Book of Changes and when Eli finds the book in Zoe’s closet, it opens to a page that says: Jim Clancy 711, Sam Lucas 1411, Andrea Marino 2804, Eli James 310 and Zoe Ramos 2505. Creepy. (Also, I always thought Andrea’s last name was “Moreno,” but whatever.)

Eli crashes Melinda’s wedding/baby shower to tell her about the book. When she holds it, she flashes back to Jim’s death and realizes that each name is followed by the date the person died. Eli then shows her another page in the book. This one says “Melinda Gordon 2509,” which is her due date. Now that is creepy.

Once Eli has the book and agrees to protect it, he and Zoe say their goodbyes and she crosses over. Melinda goes down into the Tunnels of Doom to see Carl the Watcher. He advises her to teach her child about the other side, not shield him from it, because her child will be able to do much, much more than she can. Very ominous cliffhanger in the supernatural part of the show.

The Wedding
Gordon Brady, ambassador of love and dreamweaver extraordinaire, shows up to plan Melinda’s wedding, on orders from Melinda’s mom. Yikes. It’s like Mother-of-the-Bride-zilla with a Rupert Giles accent. He ditches the DJ and hires an orchestra, wants them all to arrive at the church by horse-drawn carriage and picks out an ice sculpture for the reception. At the end of the episode, Jim kidnaps Melinda (in a white dress and everything!) and the two of them (plus Delia and Eli) head to the street where Jim and Melinda first met. He pledges his eternal love to her and they get married right there on the spot, surrounded by white light ghosts. Awww.
