Spectacular Game-changing Season-ending "LOST" Twist Spoiled (or Foiled)!
May 15, 2007: "Lost Spoilers" has just published a spoiler from one of its sources that reveals the spectacular game-changing season-ending twist at the end of next week's 2-hour finale that the producers have been speaking about all season long. Is it genuine? If it happens to be a foiler, than it is a damn good one. Spoilers galore after the jump.
According to the website, what appears to be a Jack-centric "flashback" depicts a broken, suicidal and pill-popping Jack (Matthew Fox) trying to kill himself by jumping off a bridge.
In the course of the episode, we get to see Jack at a funeral of an undisclosed person whose death rocks his world, getting caught while trying to steal drugs from the hospital and desperately trying to arrange a meeting with someone by phone.
At the end of the episode, Jack meets the person he had been trying to meet and it is revealed that the person is Kate.
At this point we realize we are not watching a flashback, but a flashforward and both Jack and Kate made it off the island.
Jack's return to the normal world has obviously had a very negative impact on him for some reason, but we do not find out why.
In the concluding moments, having finally met Kate, Jack tries to persuade her that they have to go back to the island which she refuses and drives away. Jack then screams after her: "We have to go back!"
All I can say is - wow! If this spoiler is true than Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have truly come up with the most amazing cliffhanger in recent TV history and they really are the masters of their trade.
The twist would indeed, as the producers suggested, change the game and make the fans scratch their heads and wonder which way the show would go on.
Will season 4 focus on Jack, Kate and possibly other people who are now off the island and only flash back to what ensued on the island? Or would we continue to follow the events on the island and flahsback would turn into flashforwards into the future?
Back in February, when everyone criticized "LOST" writers for what seemed like a truly poor Jack-centric episode with guest star Bai Ling which took place in Thailand and seemed completely out of place, I actually wondered in my recap - having just seen the Desmond-centric episode which completely reinvented the show's use of flashbacks - whether that could have been a flash forward.
Surely the people who have come up with such compelling storytelling over the past 3 years could not have written that seemingly poor episode had there not been more to it.
In other words, how do we know some of the flashbacks we have already seen in the past 3 years have not been flashforwards?
If this really is the season-ending twist next week, than these will be just a few of the many questions to ponder as "LOST" takes a well-deserved 9 month hiatus.
