Thanks to Ahmad from CraveOnline for the following.
CraveOnline: How blown was your mind by the flashback within a flashforward?
Daniel Dae Kim: I thought it was, when the flash forwards first started, I was really excited because I thought it kind of injected a new energy into the show, so I guess it was inevitable that they would start combining the flashbacks and the flash forwards. I think it’s great. There aren’t many shows right now where in the fourth year of its run where you’re actually still questioning the narrative style. That speaks a lot for the creativity of the writers.
CraveOnline: Are there any big developments on the finale?
Daniel Dae Kim: Yeah, there are some really big developments. There’s kind of a doozy of a development actually. There’s a lot of stuff happening on the island, he said wryly. There’s some momentous changes to the show coming up in the finale. You’ll start seeing them fairly quickly, so I think that’s about all I can say.
CraveOnline: Anything specifically involving Jin?
Daniel Dae Kim: Well, a few episodes ago it was revealed that he might actually be dead, so if that’s the case, we’ll see how that happens, or whether or not it’s true.
CraveOnline: How does it feel to be working up to something tragic?
Daniel Dae Kim: I don’t know. It’s an interesting phenomenon, to know the end point but the thing is, we don’t necessarily know the endpoint. We don’t know how he dies, we don’t know when he dies, we don’t know if he dies. So there are still so many questions.
CraveOnline: You think he just stayed on the island?
Daniel Dae Kim: It’s possible.
