As Lost’s season five finale looms, Michael Emerson, who plays Ben Linus in the show, had plenty to say to E! Online regarding this weekend’s two-hour special.
“Ours is a show that specialises in big shock endings, but I think season five… none of the other shock endings left me wondering how the show goes on. We have two kinds of huge shocks at the end of this one. Each one alone would be enough to keep an audience eating its own soul for the whole hiatus, but with two, I don’t know what you can do with that.”
Emerson then went on to say this about his character in the show: “I think Ben has a lot of layers of plans, but I think we’re way off the main stem of anything that works for him. I mean, Ben’s doing like moment-to-moment scrambling now.”
US viewers have to wait but one day to see this season reach its climax, while the UK has to hold tight until Sunday. The countdown to season six begins.
