One more reason to love Michael Emerson: He just spilled the goods on an amazing surprise for any Lost fan planning to buy the final DVD collection of all six sdeasons. (And trust me, now there is very good reason.)
There will be more Lost. There is more to the story, and we will get to see it! Praise Jacob! Or should we say...Hurley?!
"For those people that want to pony up and buy the complete Lost series, there is a bonus feature," Michael just told our Kevin Pereira of Attack of the Show!, which airs tonight at 7 on E!'s brother network G4. "Which is um, you could call it an epilogue. 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 (Jorge Garcia) becoming number one and the end of the series."
Michael says this extra footage is not the premise for a spinoff. "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."
That said, as I reported earlier, we'll find out what happens to Walt on the DVD as well. And so for the last time ever (sniff!), I think I get to say, Lost spoiler alert! Whatcha wanna bet that during Hurley and Ben's adventures on the island, they run into Walt a few years into the future, when he's oh, 18 and looking just as Malcolm David Kelley looks now?
Oh, genius show, I love you. Why must you make it so hard to let go? Just as we're trying to say good-bye, you dangle this most excellent carrot!
See all you fellow fans in the overnight campout line for the Lost DVD collection.
In the meantime, don't miss my Idiot's Guide to Lost that just posted if you still have questions. It might clear things up!
Connect with me on Twitter so we can let go of Lost together.
