In the end, I’m happier with Abrams at the helm, but it’s worth remembering his strength lies in setting up plots, not resolving them. I remember someone on this forum saying they’d get a “sadistic satisfaction” out of seeing Abrams resolve his own story.
Oh shit. If history is any indicator, J.J. is going to kill the entire cast of characters and have them meet up again in some weird non-denominational purgatory.
I’ll never understand why this myth persists.
What do you mean? That’s what happened at the end of Lost (though saying he “killed the characters” isn’t super accurate, as they all died when they died, even if it was decades after their time on the island of natural causes) - the flash sideways stuff in the final season is literally a non-denominational purgatory where all the characters eventually meet after their deaths before they all move on to heaven or whatever after the last of them dies on Earth.
Not saying that anything like that will happen in IX, but I’m not sure why you think that’s a myth about Lost. Unless you’re talking about the myth that the island was purgatory and they were all dead the whole time, but that’s not what Starkiller was saying.
That’s not the myth I was talking about (he described it more or less accurately, as you mention). The myth is that JJ Abrams had anything to do with it.
Ah, okay, my mistake. You’re definitely right about that.
I had no idea he only wrote the pilot. Anyway it was just a dumb joke.
