How The Story Will End

Before this upcoming season starts filming, the shows co-creator Damon Lindelof and company already figured out how they wanted the series to end. In an interview with Deadline, Lindelof explained

 "And then, on a storytelling level, what happens, what feels like finality in a show that has never been about resolving mystery and delivering conclusive endings, now that the show is actually going to end? And how do we want the audience to be feeling when it's all over?" Then he added "So, those conversations started in a very abstract way and as they developed became much more coherent and sort of formed themselves into 'OK, we know what that last scene is, now, how are we going to get there?'"
