Matthew Fox on the Return of Lost

“Lost” returns tonight on ABC at a new time (10/9c) with six new hours that climax with the two-part finale (5/15 and 5/29). got a chance to talk to Matthew Fox, who plays Jack, during the press day for Speed Racer.

Asked about whether the flash forwards and knowing the end date of the series has changed how he approaches work, Fox said, “Not really. Not that much. No. You know we’re going to catch up with the flash forwards here in this year and then we’ll be back and it’s going to be really interesting to see how time is structured in season five. But we will have closed those two points – the finale of last year where you had that juxtaposition of him on the island feeling like he’d finally accomplished rescue and this future where he’s desperate and at the pit of despair and feels like he has to go back and we don’t know why and what’s transpired in between. We will have closed that thing and so we will have gotten back into a situation where we’ll be in the present.”

How much gets resolved in the finale? “Huge, huge stuff. We’re shooting pretty much three episodes. It’s really like a three-episode finale that we’re shooting simultaneously. It’s huge.”

And will more questions be answered? “There will be huge things answered. Yes.”

Be sure to tune in tonight!
