Foxy says “I think the show’s going to be better in its last three seasons than it was in the first three, There’s going to be some huge mind-blowing s—.”
In addition, Fox says a few things that border on spoiler. So click on at your own risk, and click on Foxy for the full sized cover.
You can also check out my spoiler free musings in my new article at UGO, “Matthew Fox Talks Lost Season 4.”
“Jack gets people off that island, [and] suddenly he and the other people are very well known– it becomes this massive story because everybody thought that every person on this plane was Lost…. Who are they? What is everybody else doing? Jack’s mission was to get all of them off. It’s the overriding force behind him. So, the fact that he ends up getting off and doesn’t get that accomplished–I’m very curious to find out how that all goes down…. If I start giving you words about what I think it’s really about, I’m going to be honing in on some stuff that I’m not sure I’m authorized to talk about. A truck might pull up and a bunch of dudes in suits get out and mow us down with Uzis. [Laughs] Seriously.”
Whether he is speculating about the future of Lost, or knows more about the long term plan than he wants to admit, Fox also illuminates the long term for his character when it comes to his place in the death pool.
“There’s no question. People are like, ‘Well, it’s not going to be Jack or Kate for a while.’ We have to get from the island to that point in the future before it can become a real threat again. But it can become a threat again – and it will,” says Fox. “When Jack Shephard goes, “We have to go back,” that means he’s f—ing going back. And if there’s 48 episodes [left], you know that Jack is going back on that island for a certain section of episodes. That means that he could die.”
The newsstand edition of EW with the full Q&A will hit stores this Friday.
