‘Lost’ Complete Series Will Have Ben & Hurley Epilogue

Lost Ben and Hurley Lost Complete Series Will Have Ben & Hurley Epilogue

[WARNING: This article contains SPOILERS!!!! ]

Thought Sunday night’s series finale of Lost meant that there was no more of the story to come? Well think again, as apparently we’ll be getting at least another 12 minutes of story in the form of an epilogue involving Ben and Hurley.

Benjamin Linus himself, Michael Emerson, was recently on G4′s Attack of the Show where he let slip some info that I’m not sure he was supposed to (after all, can there really be spoilers now that Lost is finished?).

Emerson revealed that there’s an epilogue that will be included in the complete series collection (and possibly the season 6 DVD) that covers some of the story that was hinted at in the finale: Hurley and Ben’s time as protectors of the Island. Don’t believe me? Well, watch the video yourself of Emerson spilling the beans:

I have to admit I’m having conflicting feelings about there being more to Lost‘s story: On the one hand, as a die hard Lost fan, I’ll take any new footage I can get (geekgasm alert: More Ben and Hurley = awesome! icon razz Lost Complete Series Will Have Ben & Hurley Epilogue ). But on the other hand, the end of the show is the end of the show, is it not? We were left open-ended as to what happened with Hurley, Ben and most of the other Lost castaways, and if that’s the way things were left, then it should rightfully stay that way.

However, the writers have always said that the only things that are part of the Lost canon are what’s shown in the actual episodes.¬†Any extra things like mobisodes or deleted scenes are just there as bonuses for fans. And I’m guessing that’s the way we’re supposed to treat this Hurley and Ben epilogue when the complete¬†Lost series hits shelves on August 24th this year.

As for what other mysteries might be explored, there are obviously no details yet, but some are speculating we might see more of Walt’s story and why he was “special” – a question people were upset that the writers never answered.

What do you think of there being an epilogue to Hurley and Ben’s time on the Island? Glad that we’ll get some closure to that story or should it be left open-ended the way it was presented in the series finale?

  1. if they ever do a spin-off (let’s hope not), it will absolutely be Ben and Hurley’s story

  2. [WARNING: This article contain SPOILERS!!!! ] <— Gee, the news has someone so excited they lost an S. :D

  3. Poor Michael Emerson haha. He’s gonna get it from J.J. now.

  4. I refuse to buy this. I would just as soon take an elderly ladies SS check then give them 1 cent. (Please elderly ladies that visit im only kidding… about robbing you. I wont buy it)

  5. WHo is going to pay for a full DVD Boxset of this series???

  6. Why are the shows prodcuers so admimant about clarifying what is cannon of all the Lost connected items done when they leave most of the stuff that is from the show (that which is CANNON) unadressed anyway?

    I mean why bother? Does this mean that we can expect Cuse or Lindelhof to say something in the future lalong these lines ?

    “Coming soon, the super duper edition of LOST where for only $900 (BluRay only of course) you can get the lost LOST shots that explain all that “matters” which matters but was not actually explained in the finale and this time we mean it!”

    NOTE: BAD ROBOT productions nor any of its affiliates are in way respsonsable for any claims made in this ad or any other ad or material in general that is using the term “LOTS” to refer the ABC series by the same name.

    Also know that both shows producers had their finegrs crossed and behind their backs when making the “All that Matters” comments and therefore are not responable for any assumptions made by the viewing audience.

  7. Nope…not gonna get another dime from me on DVD’s. The only way I will see any more of this is if they add more epiosdes or just plain re-do the enitire 6th season and publish it straight to DVD. That and issue an apology to all of us they snookered for 6 whole years in their long con.

    They have RUINED serialized shows for me. How can we trust any producer/director not to bone us in the same way they did. They really ruined what little respect I had for anyone in hollywood. No…I will not put a capital H on hollywood…they don’t deserve it any longer and should have their “dumbing down” reflected in their namesake.

  8. What’s the point of having an extra 12 minutes?
