After the Lost
finale was the Jimmy Kimmel Live
special, Aloha to Lost
. Several of the show's stars popped by to recall their favorite moments of the show, with producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse presenting three alternate endings, and Kimmel getting a chance to poke fun at that.
That's done now, and I don't know what to make of it either.
Honestly, though, it's hard to squeeze in six seasons worth of fond memories into an hour-long show. So, while we got some interesting bits from some members of the cast -- Matthew Fox, Terry O'Quinn, Michael Emerson and Emilie de Ravin were on the show, among others -- it mostly seemed like an underwhelming send-off. But maybe that is the point.
With that said, here are the highlights of Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to Lost
. Trust me, I tried squeezing things out.Matthew Fox on the show's ending:
"What's beautiful is that there's room for interpretation depending on their spiritual beliefs."Michael Emerson on talk that he and Terry O'Quinn are hoping to work together again after Lost:
"We try to think that kind of double-act we can do later in life, but once in a while we have a half-clever idea that we're pitching around in street corners."Terry O'Quinn on the "least professional" member of the cast:
"Josh Holloway." In a funny twist, Josh wasn't around, but he did have a pre-taped segment where he claims to be on the set of the movie Snakes on a Plane 2
, where he dances like a snake.Daniel Dae Kim on Jin and Sun's death:
"A lot of people come up to me and ... don't congratulate me on the scene. They say, 'what about the baby?'"Michael Emerson on Ben being hit a lot:
"I never saw a glimmer of relish in their eyes when they come after me."
Terry O'Quinn on the most memorable Lost scene ever:
"I can't forget when we were shooting "Walkabout" ... when I watched it, that was when it all came together for me. I went, 'Holy mackerel, this really is something."Harold Perrineau on the fate of his on-screen son, Walt:
"He's eight feet tall and dating!"Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse really stuck to their vows of not talking after the finale:
The three "alternate endings" turn out to be a sketch. The first ending involves Survivor
's Jeff Probst popping up and "eliminating" Sayid from the show. The second one, featuring Jorge Garcia, is a parody of the controversial Sopranos
ending. The third had Bob Newhart recreate his old show's memorable ending, only with Evangeline Lilly on his bed side...
Kimmel ended the show mentioning a Q&A between the show's audience and his guests. The video is up and you can view it right below. While the show most of us saw on TV was lighter, this one had pretty good questions, including Harold Perrineau admitting he knows someone who played Hurley's numbers...
