Matthew Fox, as we all know, got his start on a little show called Part of Five. Little did we know that a decade later, he’d be one of the biggest stars on TV as Lost’s Jack Shephard, and hold all the answers fanboys and girls have been screaming for since the ABC series started back in 2004. In a recent interview with E! Online, Fox decides its time to spill some details and talks about how Lost is going to end in the shows next, and final, season.
In the interview, Fox says Lost creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse will prove they knew where they were going all along when the show ends in “an incredibly powerful, very sad and beautiful way. I think it is going to be pretty awesome.”
The only cast member to know what that crazy smoke monster is and how the show ends also said: “I think it is going to be very satisfying and cathartic and redemptive and beautiful. I’ve talked to Damon pretty extensively and every time I talk to him it’s sort of surprising how moving it is just to talk about it.”
Fox didn’t just gush about how “beautiful” ending of the series is. He also mentions how the season will pick up, given season 5’s major cliffhanger. According to the actor, the sixth season will begin with what happened after Juliet seemingly detonated a hydrogen bomb.
“It’s very surprising and probably fairly confusing initially to the audience,” said Fox. “Like, a third of the way in [to the season], I would guess we are going to [settle] into one time frame, and it will be very linear—no more flashbacks, nothing. It will be on the Island and sort of a final conflict to the end,” he said.
There you have it. Some details, more confusion, but also a little more illumination on next season of one of the biggest mysteries on TV today, (aside from “who the hell is Spidey?”).
The sixth and final season of ABC’s Lost is currently planned to start airing in January of 2010.
