[Warning: The following article contains Lost SPOILERS!]
Lost fans who are hungry for more answers will surely be aware by now that "The End" wasn't really the end (at least in terms of questions being answered/unanswered), as there is going to be a 12-minute Lost epilogue included on the season 6 and complete series DVD/Blu-rays. But you won't have to wait until late August to see that epilogue: a one-minute teaser clip has been released to wet your appetite.
Although some - myself included - were really satisfied with the way Lost ended, others weren't too happy that the show didn't tie up every single loose end.
We got our first glimpse of the Lost epilogue, entitled "The New Man in Charge," with a first image a few weeks back. Although the epilogue is supposedly about Hurley and Ben's time as protectors of the Island, the first image surprisingly showed Ben in a Dharma station and a quote from actor Michael Emerson said that, "Ben is going around to Dharma installations and closing some down."
"Wait, wasn't Dharma purged back in season 3," I hear you asking? Yes, they were, but apparently there were some mainland members still doing their duty. I won't keep you in suspense any longer - check out the teaser clip for the Lost epilogue below:
Head over to Access Hollywood to see a larger version.
When I saw that first image for the epilogue I was puzzled by how Ben could be shutting down Dharma stations if the Initiative no longer existed, considering that we (presumably) saw every station on the Island. However, this clip reveals that the station isn't on the Island but back on the mainland (specifically Guam).
What does the code that the bearded guy printed out mean exactly? Is that the same sort of thing as the coordinates the Oceanic 6 needed to follow in order to get back to the Island in season 5? Was that pallet the two guys in the clip were making up the one we saw in season 2? If that's true then the pallet would be sent back in time as Jack, Kate, Hurley and Sayid were when they flew on the Ajira flight. Intriguing...
I assume the food pallets are still being made because no one told these guys that they were to stop doing what they were doing. Are they even aware that all those Dharma folk on the Island were killed (by Ben no less!)?
In typical Lost style a one-minute long clip has given way to a whole new set of questions. To quote some dialogue from "Across the Sea," probably the most divisive episode of the entire show - "Every question I answer will simply lead to another question."
Lost season 6 and the complete series collection will both be released on DVD/Blu-ray on August 24th, 2010.
