In an interview Michael Emerson, who played Ben on LOST, gave on G4’s Attack of the Show, the actor admits that a 12-14 minute scene was shot for the Complete Collection DVD that goes into the what happens on the Island after Hurley takes over as protector. Watch the interview after the break.
“For those people that want to pony up and buy the complete Lost series, there is a bonus feature, which is…you could call it an epilogue,” explained Emerson. “A lost scene. It’s a lot. It’s 12 or 14 minutes that opens a window onto that gap of unknown time between Hurley becoming number one and the end of the series. It’s self-contained, although it’s a rich period in the show’s mythology that ‘s never been explored, so who knows what will come of it.”
I can’t wait to see this. Although it seems a spin-off is unlikely, even Emerson admits that the period in question is a big part of the mythology, and I love the wink they gave it in the episode. Watch the sequence here. The DVD is also supposed to tell us what happened to Walt. Lost: The Complete Collection is available on DVD and Blu-Ray on August 24th.
