Six years after it ended, what REALLY happened to the survivors of Flight 815 on cult hit ‘Lost’ has seen fans throw around up all kinds of theories.

What happened to our heroes? (and even the baddies) Did they ever get off that freaky bloody island???

Watch the final scene from the final ever episode of ‘Lost’

Now we have it straight from the horses mouth, with actor Michael Emerson, who played the evil Ben Linus in the show telling an audience at a fan convention how he believes the story wound up.


Are you ready? If you’re a fan of the show this may just blow your mind!

Moviepilot has quoted Emerson as saying:

“The one thing I’m sure of on the show is that everything you saw happen on the island really happened. Let’s call that the first five seasons. All of that is real”

“The ending is way in the future. Years, centuries, millennia have past. We’re in an anti-chamber to the hereafter, to eternity, if you will. All the characters on the show have come here to celebrate the end of life.”

“They’re all going to pass through to a happy afterlife. Just as in a Shakespeare, everybody goes two by two. It’s couples.”


Are you keeping up with his theory so far?

He goes on:

“That’s because, I think, by the rules of Lost, you can only pass into heaven (if you want to call it that) with a mirror redeemer. With someone who has loved you without reservation. For yourself.”

“Everybody had that, I think, except for Benjamin Linus. That’s why he can’t go. That’s why he has to wait. He needs to find his mirror redeemer.”

So there you go, does that make sense to you or do you think something else entirely bizarre happened? And what about the polar bear?


Maybe it’s time to reboot Lost so we get some answers once and for all!
