Some people don't think the Lost Finale gave closure to a lot of things. And they're right. A lot is left very open ended (ironic, considering the last five minutes is the death of all the characters). That got me thinking. The finale was two and a half hours. What if it was three? What would have been wrapped up in the missing scenes from the last episode of Lost?
Here, exclusively on Adam's Life, I have the deleted scenes from the Lost finale, "The End". You won't even find this on Carlton and Damon's personal laptops:
[Instead of Miles and Richard finding Lapidus alive in the water, we see Lapidus first, washing up alone on shore. He finds a discarded Ajira water bottle and drinks thirstily. He turns to see Seth Norris, the original pilot of Oceanic 815, standing next to him.]Now that's what I call closure.
The Pilots Finally Meet
SETH NORRIS: Hello Frank.
LAPIDUS: [jumps] Jesus! Seth? Are you… are you…
SETH: Dead? Well. Yes. In a way, I guess I am.
LAPIDUS: What are you doing here?
SETH: What are YOU doing here, Frank?
LAPIDUS: [pauses] To find you.
LAPIDUS: Because I didn't believe you were dead.
SETH: Well now you know that I am. And someone else needs to know too.
[Seth reaches down, takes off his wedding ring, hands it to Lapidus]
SETH: You understand?
LAPIDUS: I understand.
SETH: Now you have to hurry if you want to catch up with Miles and Richard.
LAPIDUS: I don't know where they are. I don't know where I am.
SETH: They're at the docks on the other side of the island. And they're leaving soon.
LAPIDUS: How do I get there in time?
SETH: The same way the Others do. [dramatic pause] Use the tunnels. Come. I'll show you.
[As they walk away, Seth puts his arm around Lapidus.]
SETH: Oh, and you have to bring a few people with you. You'll love the woman. She's a flight attendant.
[Cut to Miles and Richard preparing the outrigger to sail to Hydra Island. Lapidus reaches them before they can leave, Cindy the flight attendant, Zack and Emma in tow. There, on the beach, he convinces them to fly off the island, not blow the plane up]
Cindy, Zack and Emma Get Off The Island
[Rest of finale goes exactly as aired, until:]
[Jack's eye closes.]
[After Jack's eye closes, the scene changes to the Ajira plane.]
KATE: What do we tell people when we land? We took off with all those people on board. Now it's just us. They'll ask us questions. And we can't tell them about the island.
MILES: Maybe we can land someplace where no one will notice.
LAPIDUS: You know any airports that won't notice a beat up, presumed lost 747 landing on their runway?
[Desmond has a realization. He smiles.]
DESMOND: Can you fly this thing to Antarctica, brutha?
LAPIDUS: If these hydraulics can hold out, I just might. Why?
DESMOND: A friend of mine's got a runway there.
Desmond has a plan
[The scene suddenly switches to a landscape of snowy peaks in blizzard conditions. The camera pulls back to reveal that it's a shot through a window. We see the inside of a fairly small shelter filled with equipment and laundry hanging from lines. THE SAME SHACK FROM THE SEASON 2 FINALE. One man is getting coffee while another man waits at a chess board. Man #2 kicks something.]
Remember These Guys? They find Desmond again.
MAN #2: Quem quebrou isso, hein?
MAN #1: Não se preocupe. Tá quebrado. Destruí sua defesa. Essa será sua última vez que verá "o" torre. [Subtitled from Portuguese: I crush your defense and that is the last you shall see of your rook. ]
MAN #2: Parte do plano, meu amigo. Tudo parte do plano. [Subtitle: All part of the plan, my friend.]
MAN #1: Ah, então seu plano deve ser perder. Agora, por favor. [Subtitle: Ah. Then your plan must be to lose. Please. Your move.]
[Man #2 looks over a piece of equipment. We can see a screen that says Electromagnetic Anomaly Detected.]
MAN #1: O quê? [Subtitle: What? ]
MAN #2: Há quanto tempo tá fazendo isto? [Subtitle: How long has it been doing that? ]
[Man #1 goes over to the equipment and hurriedly looks through a book.]
MAN #2: É isso, não é? A gente não percebeu de novo. Eles vão matar a gente! [Subtitle: That's it, isn't it? We missed it again... ]
MAN #1: Fica quieto! Nós não o perdemos! [Subtitle: We didn't miss it! ]
[An alarm starts beeping and Man #1 goes to a computer screen.]
MAN #2: Fala! Fala de novo que não é um alarme falso. Fala, fala de novo. Fala que eu... [Subtitle: So it's not a false alarm this time?! ]
MAN #1: Cala a boca e chama ajuda!! [Subtitle: Just shut up and call!! ]
[We see a bedroom nightstand and hear the phone on it ringing.]
Penelope picks up the phone.
MAN #2: Ms. Hume?
MAN #2: It's us. I think we found him.
[Scene changes to Afterlife Universe, the Universal Church. Our Losties are at the door of white light, ready to walk through.]
[We cut back to the original universe, to a door opening. Claire's mom. She's stunned to see Claire standing in front of her. Aaron peeks out from behind her. Claire and Claire's Mom embrace. Claire sees Aaron and cries tears of joy. ]
Claire, Her Mom, and Aaron Finally Reunite
[Cut to Afterlife Universe, the Universal Church. Claire and Charlie step into the light.]
[We cut to another door opening. It's Cassidy, the mother of Sawyer's child. She's stunned to find Sawyer standing in front of her. Clementine comes up behind her, curious about the man at the door.]
Sawyer Finally Meets His Daughter
[Cut to, Aft. Universe, Universal Church, Sawyer and Juliet step into the light.]
[We cut to another door opening. It's Miles, exiting a black car. Miles goes to the graveside of his mother, places on top of it a torn patch—a Swan station patch. Pierre Chang's Swan station patch.]
Miles makes peace with his father.
[Cut to Aft. Universe. Pierre Chang walks through to light]
[Cut to another door opening. Seth Norris's grieving widow. Lapidus hands her Seth Norris's wedding ring.]
Lapidus delivers Seth Norris's wedding ring to his widow.
[Behind Lapidus, we see Cindy sitting in his car waiting for him, smiling.]
[Cut to Aft. Universe. Seth Norris walks into light.]
[Cut to a door opening. A barn door. An elderly Richard emerges, holding a pitchfork. He tills the fields, sweating. Eloise Hawking, now the same age as him, and hair down for once, lovingly hands him a glass of water. He drinks thirstily, hands the glass back, and as she walks back to house, he looks off into the distance and fingers the cross around his neck.]
Richard and Eloise! Didn't see that one coming!
[Cut to Universal church, Richard walks into the light]
[Cut to a door opening. A plane door. Out comes a young Asian girl. Awaiting her is Desmond, Penelope and little Charlie. They're adopting Ji-Yeon. A woman we've never seen comes out of the plane two, eyes searching. She sees Zack and Emma, runs to them. They all embrace. Zack, Emma and their mother are reunited at last.]
Children finally meet their mother. Ji-Yeon has a family
[Cut to Universal Church. Desmond and Penelope walk into the light, followed by Jin and Sun.]
[Finally, Cut to a door opening. It's Kate, leaving her bathroom at home. Her face a mixture of fear and hope. She looks down at what she holds in her hands. A pregnancy test. It's positive. She smiles, cries.]
So THAT'S who Jack's son is in the afterlife timeline!
[Cut to Jack and Kate, walking into the light together]
A Happy Ending For Jack and Kate
