The Lost Supper

lost_supperIt’s an idea that was borrowed by Battlestar Galactica and The Sopranos, but the cast of Lost slip perfectly into a simulated “Last Supper” photo shoot ahead of the show’s final season.

It makes very neat wallpaper for die-hard fans. Apparently it is also loaded with Season 6 clues.

Meanwhile producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof have given The Hollywood Reporter a lengthy interview focusing on the sixth season. It’s safe to read without fearing major Spoilers, unless you haven’t heard of any returning cast members (in which case maybe stay clear).

Here’s an excerpt:

THR: You obviously can’t talk about the content of the ending. But how do you think fans will feel about it?

Lindelof: That’s a very cagey way of asking it. It’s tough to prognosticate. But the one area we’re in agreement is there will be a short-term reaction to the ending and then a legacy reaction that comes six months, a year down the road, looking at the show as a whole. Carlton and I were trying yesterday to remember what the final season of “The Sopranos” even was about — we couldn’t remember much about the finale itself except Anthony Jr. was going to go into the Army and crashed his car and changed his mind. But we remember every frame of the diner scene. What people take away from our finale is going to be based purely on that two-hour episode, but our hope is they’ll be able to connect that experience to the six years that preceded it.

THR: Is there any one character’s story line that you think particularly emotionally resonates this season?

Cuse: Jack and Locke have always been at the center of the show, that dilemma of faith vs. reason, and the conflict between those two characters has been there since the beginning. It’s very exciting to bring that relationship to its conclusion, and we can’t really be any less vague about that.

    @Mikeys, I recommend watching the last 2 seasons – there’s heaps of info and wtf moments not in the catchup. After Season 4 got going it was a very enjoyable rollercoaster ride all the way thru to the end of the excellent S5 (my fave).

  2. I loved Lost, then it lost Me, the last 2 seasons won me back and my affair with Lost is back on. Can’t wait to see how this whole stupid show wraps up !

  3. This is less a case of a rip-off and more an instance of Lost upping the ante.

    There are actually two Last Supper promotional pictures, with each possibly depicting alternate timelines.

    Both can be found here:

  4. Lost has had hidden clues in pictures since it started, which was actually pretty much exactly the same time BSG started, so you can’t really say that one show beat the other one to it.

  5. @Michael

    The last supper motif has been used long before BSG all the way back to M.A.S.H. The Sopranos did it recently. Hey even South Park and Simpsons have done it.

  6. Haha by the middle of the catch-up I was still thinking, “WTF?” I used to adore Lost, but I just stopped watching when it started getting weird aka time travel etc. Might watch the last season just for interest’s sake.

  7. @Michael, i understand it’s an idea that was also used in BSG, but really….so what?

    You can’t really “rip off” an idea to “rip off” a famous painting. They’re both good shows, so just enjoy them for what they are.
