After 6 years, the end of the BEST tv series arrives today, with 2 chapters and an extra half hour special show, two and a half hour series finale. We will miss you.
The chapters are: Lost 17 and 18: The End. Directed by Jack Bender, written by Damon Lindelof & Carlton Cuse.
It is also the 120th and 121st episodes overall. The episode will air simultaneously on ABC in the United States, CTV in Canada, Fox and Cuatro in Spain (6 AM), DiziMax in Turkey and Sky1 in the United Kingdom at 9pm Eastern Time on May 23, 2010.
Damon Lindelof reported on his Twitter page that the finale completed shooting in Hawaii on April 24, 2010, exactly six years after filming was completed on the show’s pilot.
The cast members have expressed satisfaction regarding the finale.
If you think about how many pieces the writers had to put together in order to make it fall into place, it’s mind-boggling, and they did such a great job… For me it was very satisfying. After I read it, I had to sit for five or 10 minutes, just reflecting and digesting, because it definitely makes an impact.

I have received the finale by degrees. I read the script without the secret scenes, then I read the secret scenes, then I shot the script and each time I’m thinking about ‘what does this mean?’ When I first read it, the ending wasn’t clear to me – but since then it’s grown more clear and I have to say, grown more satisfying the more I think about it. I expect a mixture of satisfaction and consternation amongst the viewers when it airs. But once they rewatch it, rethink about it and possibly look at the saga again, gradually they will feel like they have just read a good novel — but you have to chew on it for a while.

The finale is all about everyone’s resolutions.

There are so many walks of life getting together to talk about the show and so many issues to be brought up and that’s exactly what the ending will bring up. People will be talking about it for weeks afterwards and that’s what the show has always done.
