We’re down to the last five hours of Lost: Four episodes, which includes the two-hour series finale. Tonight’s installment, “The Candidate,” is an ensemble-focused one in which everyone’s favorite guilty-but-in-this-new-dimension-she’s-innocent fugitive from justice Kate Austen plays a major part. Vulture spoke to Evangeline Lilly to discuss not just the future of Kate Austen but, because Lost has officially wrapped, the future of Evangeline Lilly as well. Also, she answers a few Vulture commenter questions. Warning: A candid Lilly reveals a possibly major spoiler about Allison Janney’s guest role in next week’s episode.

So Evangeline Lilly is taking a break from acting. Interesting. It is without saying that Lost will become syndicated, how could it not. So once that happens, she really doesn’t have to work very hard. I’d like to see where her path takes her and if she will dive into any major film roles. What are your thoughts?
