After "Lost" took its final bow during a special two-and-a-half-hour series finale event on Sunday night, several "cast and crew members appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to commemorate the show's legacy, discuss some of the events that transpired during the episode and debut three alternate endings.
Kimmel's first guest was Matthew Fox, the 43-year-old actor responsible for playing noble spinal surgeon Jack Shephard. Fox reaffirmed that he's long known that the final image of "Lost" would involve a dying Jack's eye closing, just as his eye's opening was the show's first image. Despite his pride over working on the series, Fox admitted: "It's hard to watch for me. Some time down the road, I suppose I'll watch it all the way through. ... [But] it's been an incredible, incredible experience playing this guy."
Fox was soon joined by Terry O'Quinn (Locke) and Michael Emerson (Ben). Kimmel jokingly asked O'Quinn if this was the "good Terry" or the "bad Terry," referring to O'Quinn's season-six portrayal of the villainous Smoke Monster in Locke's body. "This is the out-of-work Terry," the actor quipped.
O'Quinn said he first understood the power of "Lost" upon watching "Walkabout," the season one episode that revealed Locke was a paraplegic before the crash. Emerson said that his favorite scenes centered on Ben's use of food as a prop. For Fox, his first scene with Evangeline Lilly (Kate) where she stitches his back was "a tough scene to do" but still a highlight.
Other actors eventually graced the stage. Naveen Andrews (Sayid) admitted that he didn't regularly watch "Lost," while Emilie de Ravin (Claire) revealed that she didn't tune in to the series during her season five absence. Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) laughingly acknowledged that his character had bad luck with boats, nearly blowing up twice and ultimately drowning in a sunken submarine.
At the end of the hour, Kimmel debuted three comedic alternate endings crafted by executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. The first ending centers on Sayid as he tells a gathered campfire circle the story of how he blew up on the submarine. Moments later, "Survivor" host Jeff Probst steps out of the jungle and informs Sayid that he's been voted out of the tribe. A furious Sayid rants to the camera that he didn't go through the entire series only to be eliminated by "Jeff f---ing Probst!"
The second alternate ending riffed on the famous ending of "The Sopranos," with Jorge Garcia (Hurley) occupying the Tony Soprano role. He sits at a table with Fox and de Ravin and begins to tell them that he thinks he "knows the secrets to the Islan —" before the screen cuts to black.
The final alternate ending evoked the classic conclusion to "Newhart," complete with Bob Newhart waking up from a dream only to find himself in bed next to Evangeline Lilly.
Kimmel closed out the hour on a serious note, thanking the cast and crew of "Lost" for contributing to one of the single most memorable television events of the decade.
