LOST Spoiler!

Michael Emerson discussing Season 6, Ben, Jacob, and father issues at the Saturn Awards (Don’t forget to highlight the hidden text!)

Ausiello: May’s series finale is going to be a real downer, predicts Michael Emerson. “I don’t think Lost will have a happy ending,” he confessed to us at the Saturn Awards. “It’s the end and I think we are going to start seeing more casualties. I would put money on major characters being killed. I believe it will be a sad ending to the show — or at least bittersweet. I think it will definitely be a series finale for grownups.” Emerson, meanwhile, is still trying to make sense of the season 5 finale. (Join the club!) “I killed Jacob… maybe… probably,” he hedged. “It isn’t like we haven’t seen plenty of other people be killed and somehow come back. And what does it mean if I did kill him? I Who the hell was he anyway? Obviously, Ben wanted a father. So much of our show is about bad fathers. It is one of our biggest themes. And Jacob disappointed in those final moments. And maybe Jacob made it easy for him. Maybe that was all meant to happen. Is it all ordained? Maybe. And for that matter, can Jacob even be killed? Stay tuned is my response.”

Michael Emerson on Season 6 of LOST

From SciFi Wire:

Michael Emerson, who plays Ben Linus, confirmed that at least he is still an active part of the show. “My understanding is that I am,” Emerson said in an exclusive interview last week at the Saturn Awards in Burbank, Calif. “For how much of season six, that’s a good question.”

Yes, more cryptic answers from the actor who plays the most cryptic character on the show. He even kiboshed my theory about erasing the present timeline. If the bomb prevented the crash of Oceanic Flight 815, seeing everybody live happily ever after wouldn’t earn high ratings for the finale.

“I could see why you might think that, but from my perspective as playing that character who arrived late on that show, it doesn’t sound terribly dramatic unless there’s something in that equation that I don’t quite get,” Emerson said. “I’m just curious about what dramatic paths we’ll follow.”

One dramatic path might be further explorations of the mysterious Jacob. The fifth season finale revealed Jacob as a corporal presence, but still not quite human. Ben stabbed him, intending to kill Jacob. “I’m still not sure that he’s a person like you and [me],” Emerson said. “I’m still not sure he’s a person like Ben. Is he killable? I don’t know. We haven’t been to his funeral yet so I don’t know. I don’t know where all that’s going.”

Season six might finally give us a Ben flashback. We’ve seen Ben in flash-forwards, sending Sayid on assassination missions and trying to shoot Desmond. We’ve met Young Ben in the past, but we have yet to see Ben flash back to reflect on his own adult life.

“What constitutes a proper Ben flashback?” Emerson said. “There are some gaps in Ben’s bio, and I think we may look backward a couple of times this season. I’m just guessing.”

Don’t expect any big changes for Ben, though. While audiences have seen him go from Henry Gale to the evil leader of the Others to a sympathetic young boy, Emerson has always acted as Ben and will continue to do so. “Ben has always seemed straightforward to me, and I don’t think Ben has changed much over time,” he said. “I think audience perceptions of Ben has changed.”

Mark Pellegrino (Jacob on LOST) Headed to Supernatural?

According to The Ausellio Files, Mark Pellegrino (our beloved one-episode-so-far Jacob on LOST) is headed to Supernatural next season as, well…Lucifer.

How will this affect his role as the God-like Jacob on LOST? According to the report, it’s not a full time role. So that could leave Pellegrino open for more work on LOST.

I certainly hope so. The popularity and appeal of the Jacob character is immense after just the aforementioned one episode.
