Lost finale speculation

So I can't sleep and a million things are whirring around my brain, including (surprise) Lost.

Saw the promos for the finale again tonight, which leads me to wonder this.
(Based on the promos and JJ's comment in EW - if you're up on both of those, keep reading):


So in the promos, Sayid is threatening Locke with a gun. And then it looks like Locke is getting shot, but from the back. And in EW, JJ said that the finale would be like "Who shot JR?" Meaning people will be talking about it all summer. So are they literally going to do "Who shot Locke?" Because that seems kind of ... lame.

That's such a soap opera device and would be unworthy of Lost. (Yes, I know it has soap-ish elements.)

Maybe it's a fakeout and Locke isn't shot. But if anyone offs Locke (not that I think that's going to actually happen), I want it to be Shannon. I want her to stab him like Tosca does to the jerk in her life in Puccini's opera of the same name. Since I have opera on the brain tonight.

(BTW: Best tenor aria ever in Tosca "E lucevan le stelle." Heartbreaking. I would offer to upload but my CD is scratched! Phooey. So instead I'm playing the very aptly titled "Nessun Dorma" - no one sleeps!)

I think it was sparky77 who was speculating that they let Sawyer be so sweet and helpful in DNH to offset some upcoming dark deeds. We'll see!

Dude, you know it's Locke. They fuckin' showed it in the promos, unless the promo monkeys are at it again. But I agree, the "Who shot JR" gimmick is lame and not what I want out of this show.

(I gotta run to lunch, but I will finish my beta when I get back!!)

Yeah, either he's getting shot or someone's just dreaming/hallucinating/wishing it! ;-)

If they do pull a "Who Shot Locke," I will be very disappointed. Will we get a Simpsons parody then?

Then we'll know this show has entered to pop culture mainstream, lol!!

The thing I noticed about the "who shot Locke" part in the promo (at least last weeks after Lost, I haven't seen this new one) is that unless it started raining or whatever, Locke is wearing different shirts from when Sayid pulls the gun (khaki) and when he gets shot (dark brown). It looks like he looked in Homecoming, to tell you the truth.

Gah, stupid promo monkeys. You just can't trust them with anything.

Yes, I noticed that too -- apparently different days?

You think that's what they're using the cut scene from Homecoming - in the finale? Would be interesting ... if a bit odd!

I don't know what to think. They have me right where they want me!

I don't literally think that they'll use that footage in the finale, no, at least I hope not - 'cause cheesy! But I think the promo monkeys might have used it because they're evil. I mean, we know that there is a Locke deleted scene from Homecoming, where's he's down from something, because of the relased promo pictures. So, no, I guess I just worded it funny, lmfao. I just think that might be a slight possiblity of where the (often misleading) promo footage came from, is all. :)

LOL. I see what you're saying. It wouldn't surprise me if they did use misleading footage in the promos!

When we saw that one quick glimpse of Sawyer in the promo for "Do No Harm," I swear it looked like they'd taken it from the opening of "Outlaws," that "WTF?" over-the-shoulder-look. But I guess I was wrong! ;-)

I know the exact moment you're talking about too. I thought the same thing - especially since they do misleading crap all the damn time.

I hope it doesn't lead to a "Who shot Locke" speculation as well. That'd just be too soap opera-ish, and truly lame for Lost.

Ahh, well. We'll have to wait and see. ::bites nails::

I know! I just hope we don't feel ripped off the with the finale. They can knock it out of the park when they try. But JJ - he likes those shocking twists. And they don't always pay off (See, Alias - Season 3). But I have faith! (For now.)
