Enigmatic Final Scene Of 'LOST' Added By Network - Not Producers

LOST The final scene shown during ABC's Sunday night broadcast of the "LOST" series finale was added to the show by the network - not executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse - according to a report on Entertainment

The last images of Oceanic Flight 815 wreckage strewn across the beach with only the soothing sound of crashing waves in the distance quickly became one of the show's biggest mysteries.

But a spokesman for ABC told the L.A. Times, "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."

That idea backfired though, as the network was apparently clueless that fans of the series tend to pick apart every detail of each episode in their quest to figure out the the island's many secrets and mysteries. Fans can now rest easy knowing that those final images were simply trivial and didn't hold a much deeper meaning - such as "OMG no one survived the crash in the first place."

Feel free to go back and reinterpret the entire finale now.
