Ending of 'Lost' revealed at Comic-Con? Not exactly ...

Here's the setup: At the start of the "Lost" panel, executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse presented a locked box they said contained the last page of the final episode's script and that they would open this box on Jimmy Kimmel Live after the show's finale next year.

Then, near the end of the session, a rogue Josh Holloway takes the stage, mock Taser zaps Lindelof and forces Cuse to unlock the box so the final "Lost" scene can be revealed to the Comic-Con crowd.

Watch the video, before reading the rest below, as not to spoil the fun ...



OK, you finish the video? Do that first....

This gag had the audience rolling. But what made it even funnier was that at the "Heroes" panel a few hours later, producers talked about how the fourth season really does have a circus -- there's a dark carnival  recruiting heroes throughout next season. You figure "Lost" writers heard about the carnival subplot and used it to add an all-too-plausible element to their gleeful mocking of the other kid attending their high school of serialized TV shows. Also, I can watch Benjamin Linus ask, "What the f--k is this?" all day.
