The Lost Lost Scene That Proves it Was All Planned

During the run of Lost, one of the most rewarding gatherings of the show's fans took place each year at Comic-Con where showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse put on a panel that was unmatched in fervor. Fans asked questions which were sometimes answered, surprise cast members showed up and were nearly knocked down by screams, and prizes were handed out like it was a charity Christmas banquet (some lucky guy out there has Claire's fake seagull).

But Lost is over now, and it's time to put those legendary panels to rest. OR IS IT!? Lindelof and Cuse crawled out of a wormhole and appeared at the "Lost: One Year Later" panel at this year's Comic-Con. Their biggest surprise? They showed never-before-seen footage that disproves critics' claims that the two made up the jigsaw story as they went along.

There it is... proof that they totally planned that horrible ending all along. Joke! I'm joking!

People this is a JOKE, this is not proof that they planned the end, they dont need to prove anything, anyone with a brain surely knows they had a plan from the very beginning. The people who complain about the ending either didnt understand it or WRONGLY claim they didnt answer their questions.



LOST=Best tv series ever.

ill def say that the parady was funny...even though i dont know how this confirms they were planning the ending in advance. it looked like they cut and paste barry and Jacob into that scene which they probably did. Also let me say i love Lost. i hold it in such high regard as shows like Battlestar Galactica and Breaking Bad, but the ending was terrible. And not because it was trying convoluted for no reason. i understand the ending i just dont like it. they were all left in limbo until they all met up when they all died so they could go to heaven. Haha give me a break.

It all felt like they didnt know how to wrap up such a great show. the journey was worth it but the ending still sucked. Even this parady kind of shows how stupid an funny the plot ended up to be.

it is not that the ending was bad but it was the beginning wasn't set for such an ending..and trying to hide it behind lighthearted parody and trying to sell a "presupposed hindsight" about the show that didn't the beginning or the events in that show is just plain stupid.



Like any other show that begins on a promising ground and then becomes too big to fill the commercial/rating requirements..they had to end it abruptly, I guess all the shows at the time learned the lesson from "Prison Break", a great show in the beginning and in the mid but lame near the end, which itself was a product of the writers strike in the 2007/2008 season, and then it ended on a sore note, all the shows running at that period were caught with there "pants down" they already had developed a huge following, and kept the "mystery alive", yet for how long can they maneuver the audience "expectations" and thwart every "I knew that" comment coming from their viewers. They had to finish it off quickly, at no m

That was pretty funny. In fact it was better than the lame ending to the show. Nice job Jacob and Barry.

Lost was one of the best shows i have ever seen. this "LOST" scene has proved that everything was not just about being on the island, but about faith and how Esau, or Berry, was not just some evil monster, but the key to finding hope and faith of destiny to be safe off the island for once and for all!!!

The only mistake the LOST writers ever made was to trust in the intelligence of the viewers, How people claim that things werent answered, that things dont make sense is astonishing, this show was NEVER about giving us literal definitions to EVERYTHING, wheres the fun or mystery in that?? EVERYTHING has an answer, if you werent smart enough or didnt pay attention thats ON YOU.

Have you noticed that most of the people commenting on this are "haters/didnt get its" Most of the ones that got it/loved it have moved on, stop being bitter and educate yourselves. Lost was and is the greatest tv series ever made, The end was perfect, and all of you that say "Nothing was answered....BULLSHIT, i challenge you to draw up your list of unanswered questions and join me here.. http://www.facebook.com/groups/DisprovingTHElostMYTH/

Other than the terrible inclusion of the 'magic cork' I will never, for the life of me, understand why people hate this show so much. The only other possible complaint I can think of is the fact that the final 'battle' between Jack and Esau (or Barry I suppose...) was a little anticlimactic. Everything else ended exactly the way I wanted it to end and really wouldn't have worked any other way. If you finished season five and went into the start of season six believing that the question "What is the island?" was going to be answered by the finale, then you didn't deserve to watch the show in the first place. One of the shows big messages was about the balance between science and faith and it was quite obvious, long before the finale, that the show was going in the direction of faith. In fact you could probably figure that out around the time when Jack claimed to be a man of science, since it wasn't very hard to see that he would eventually change to faith by the shows end.

Not funny. Never will be. They can try to "work it" and it will fool those who hardly watched, or who tuned in late in the series - and those who are congenitally dense. All the rest of us know what you did, Damon and Carlton, and we're not forgetting or forgiving. This **** just drives the stake deeper. When will you admit you were in over your heads and hadn't a clue how to wrap it all up. Lost was a tragedy; a waste of talent and a waste of six years of my life, pure and simple.

Exactly, the show was never about the island as such, sure it was an important factor but it was always about the characters and redemption.

i love it when people get pissed off saying stuff like: "oh it was a beautiful, deeply meaningful ending. you all just want a simple ending answering all the questions"



i usually love movies that end but don't solve all the mysteries... but lost's ending was crap!



The "bad guy" (Barry, we should call him now, i guess lol) was considered the bad guy for thinking and not following the "dogmas" of a crazy woman. That's just stupid.

Have you guys noticed that every single article on the internet that attaches this clip only talks warm and light heartily, as if we are all getting together for a fireside chat. Every single article's tag line is in vein of: "Proof it was all planned!" I have not found one published on the net that voices any cynicism towards the matter. I'd like to think i have a pretty good social barometer (or mass media barometer)... guess not.

Can't believe how many people in the comments section don't realise this is clearly a joke although I do understand why it annoys some people as it seems like even the writers know the ending was stupid.

I didn't start watching the show until last January. I streamed it all on Netflix. I loved it. It's a great show, but I'm glad I waited until after it ended to watch it all at once and didn't spend 6 years of my life waiting for answers to all of that crap. For me it was the characters that made the show, the mystery was secondary. Season 6 kind of sucked but overall the show was a fun ride. There will never be anything like it again.

A joke ? A joke with the show, I'd rather say. Lost was a brilliant show with a mediocre ending...

Cuse and Lindelof... I was mad at the Lost ending, but after I saw this deleted clip Its all finally clear-- I get it now-- it was all a joke, the whole 6 seasons, the mythology, the mystery, the wonder, the characters, all that love. A joke. Just like you two. You ought to ashamed of yourselves. I don't get ALL the people on internet that just laughed this off, Cuse and Lindelof are basically just shoving *** in your faces and we thinks they are waffels. Well I HATE waffels!

That had me laugh out loud... total spoof, but I really don't mind. I loved Lost (just re-watching the whole thing again and back up to Season 6). I can see how people could've been disappointed, but disappointment is a result of expectations. I didn't have any. Yeah, there were always tons of questions, but if you just run with it and let yourself be surprised, you can suspend your disbelief and enjoy the whole thing. I loved the ending. I loved it more than it disappointed me. Sure, they could've found a more satisfying resolution and answered more questions than they actually did, but for me the overall experience of Lost was never tainted.

That was hilarious. As in, hilariously awful. I love it when people make fun of themselves. XD

Much like the show, I really don't get Lindelof and Cuse. Months after Lost ended, they vociferously defended any criticism directed towards the ending of their show, and when George R.R Martin came up with the inspired catchphrase "pulling a Lost", they took to twitter to defend their show once again. Now they playfully poke fun at the ending they used to vehemently defend. From puritanical to parodiable, these guys are as schizophrenic as the "ending" they "planned".

Saw this a couple of days ago. Hilarious! "Barry" is every fan who was disappointed with the way LOST ended. Lindelof & Cuse's new show "Once Upon a Time" better have a good ending cause I don't think they can pull another one of these if they wanna stay at work in Hollywood.
