So those images of the Oceanic 815 plane crash that ran at the very end of the "Lost" finale? The ones that some viewers interpreted as meaning no one survived the crash and the last six seasons were a fantasy? Well, ABC executives want everyone to know that the images were added to help segue into the news and actually have no meaning, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.
"The images shown during the end credits of the ‘Lost’ finale, which included shots of Oceanic 815 on a deserted beach, were not part of the final story but were a visual aid to allow the viewer to decompress before heading into the news," an ABC representative said in an email to the blog.
The decision to place the eerie images at the conclusion of the show’s finale was just a "nostalgic, transitional touch" dreamed up by ABC executives, and not a plot point from the show’s producers, the article says.
