Lost Kills Off Fan-Favorites - What Does It Mean for the Finale?
Spoiler Warning: This article contains details from Tuesday night's episode of Lost, including which characters died. Reader, beware!]
After waiting nearly two years for a sweet reunion, Sun (Yunjin Kim) and Jin (Daniel Dae Kim) took their last breath in the submarine — a Charlie Pace-like death — in Tuesday night's episode of Lost. So, was that really the end of Sun and Jin Kwon? Yunjin Kim discusses what we'll see of the star-crossed lovers in the final episodes, along with teasing the last scene of the series and more.
TVGuide.com: I'll admit that I did shed a few tears after your death in Tuesday's episode. The Sun and Jin reunion was so short-lived! Yunjin Kim: It was a brilliant way to end Sun and Jin's life on the island. Because of the way the story is going, especially once we get to Episode 15, 16 and 17, it's moving at a pretty fast pace. Let's say if Jin dies alone, Sun would only grieve for Jin for two seconds and we'd have to move on with the storyline. It was a very romantic death.
TVGuide.com: The episode was jampacked with death, especially with Sayid (Naveen Andrews) taking one for the team. Kim: Yeah, I think we all become heroes at the end as far as the island story goes. I have a feeling that's how the series is going to end. Sayid's death is very abrupt and ours is very drawn out. Daniel and I both had water pouring on top of our heads while shooting it, so it was hard to even keep our eyes open. It was physically demanding.
TVGuide.com: How did you feel when the producers told you that your characters were going to die? Kim: As soon as I got on the phone with Damon Lindelof, he said "This phone call is not one of those phone calls." He told me how it was going to happen and I actually thought it was a beautiful ending to both of the characters. It will only propel the other survivors to go after Locke [Terry O'Quinn], and have a very good reason to go after Locke as aggressively as they do in the final episodes.
