    I agree with that 100%. I don't think they'd answer questions regardless of how good/bad the finale is perceived. I'm simply saying that I think they realized a couple of years ago that it would be impossible to satisfactorily explain all the various mysteries they've left open, so they simply decided not to even try with most of them.

    And it's possible that they don't want to put a damper on the conversation. Nothing ends an argument quicker than the writer chiming in!

    This is easily the most theorized show in the history of television. Even if the ending is perfect, there will be people out there who will be angry, simply because the ending doesn't fit with what THEY THINK the ending should have been.

    I just thought of something:

    If you were Hugo, would you buddy-breathe by passing the mouthpiece, or take a big swig of it and tell Kate to "Come and get it"?

    Oh yes. I agree 100%

    No matter what Cruse and Lindeloff have done with the finale, I expect a number of enraged (and in their mind, outraged) people on 11:01 PM Sunday for this exact reason.

    C&L have gone into "radio silence" after each season of Lost, so this isn't new. On the podcasts they once said that they want the show to stand on its own as a body of work and that they wouldn't be adding to it after the finale. I came away from that believing that they would NEVER talk about it after the finale. In fact, they will only be doing one more podcast and not one between the last two nights of Lost.
    They said that the next-to-last show has events that lead directly into the Finale and that they wouldn't be able to talk about them without talking about the Finale, which they won't do.

    I think I would be disappointed in the show if it DID wrap up all of the questions in the finale because that was part of the goodness of lost - the mystery of what was going on.

    When I went to see Iron Man, there was something about a Lost discussion being broadcast at the theater. Anyone know anything about that?

    Lindelof and Cuse WILL be in the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" special immediately following the finale though... so I guess the radio silence won't begin until after that. :)

    They won't be on his show live. They'll appear in something taped before the finale airs. Which means that, when they tape it, they'll be the only people in the room who will have seen the finale. Which means no specific questions.

    I wonder when Kimmel is actually going to do that show. Live at midnight on the east coast is right when the finale is airing on the west coast (where he is). I wonder if they're screening it for him and his live audience on east coast time.

    That taped segment will be taped two days before, on Friday night. They'll be on the show live on that Friday night, too.

    Just to follow up on this, the ratings for last week have been compiled, and LOST was the 7th highest rated show among adults 18-49, and the 3rd highest among scripted shows. Glee and The Big Bang Theory were the only scripted shows with higher ratings.
