Michael Emerson Previews ‘Lost’s Unusual Detour and Unexpected Romance
With just two regular episodes plus one super-sized series finale left to air, ABC’s ‘Lost‘ continues its “wild ride” this Tuesday with an outing that fan fave Michael Emerson calls both “unexpected” and “unusual.” Is the hour’s suitably special guest star up to the task? Emerson previews the sprawling saga’s final weeks, sizes up the ever-expanding finale, and explains why he may not be the one to ask for answers once the screen fades to black on Sunday, May 23.
We’ve missed seeing you as of late. Remind us, what has Ben been up to? He, Miles and Richard went off on a mission, right? Yes. When last heard from, they were going to go out and try to figure out a way to blow up the airplane.
So maybe they were responsible for the package of C4 that UnLocke (played by Terry O’Quinn) found on the plane? That’s a good question, but no… I think Widmore is behind that.
The Big Tease: Scoop on ‘Lost,’ ‘NCIS’ and More!
This week’s episode, “Across the Sea,” is especially unique for ‘Lost’ in that if features barely any regular cast members, yourself included. What is this episode out to accomplish? The episode takes place in a… time and place completely unexpected. That choice is unusual for our show or any show I’ve ever seen.
One of the few things we know is that ‘The West Wing’s Allison Janney guest-stars as “Woman.” I suppose if you’re going to ask someone to do the heavy lifting, a three-time Emmy winner is a good call. Yeah, and I suspect that if you asked her now, she would say the lifting might have been too heavy. Our show is rough – the days are long, and the working conditions sometimes are kind of grim – but from everything I hear, she gives a really compelling performance. People should be very interested to see what goes on in that episode.
