After receiving hundreds of hateful tweets in the wake of the Breaking Bad finale, LOST creator Damon Lindelof spoke out in an open letter published by The Hollywood Reporter. Praising the Breaking Bad finale as spectacular and brilliant, Lindelof said that he felt the need to – once again – defend the choices which made legions of fans angry about the way he ended LOST. “I agreed to write this piece because I am deeply and unhealthily obsessed with finding ways to revisit the LOST finale and the maddening hurricane of shit that has followed it. And this morning? “I am Walter White. Arrogant. Conceited. Selfish. Entitled. Looking for ways to blame everything and everyone but myself, even though it is perfectly clear the situation I find myself in is of my own making. And here’s the worst part: I’m still naive enough to believe I can attain some level of redemption,” Lindelof said Wanting to free himself of his “addiction” to defending the LOST finale, Lindelof made a bargain with fans, agreeing never to speak of it again – so long as they won't. But Lindelof just had to get in one last jab at the people who think the LOST finale was horrible: “I stand by the Lost finale. It’s the story that we wanted to tell, and we told it. No excuses. No apologies. I look back on it as fondly as I look back on the process of writing the whole show. And while I’ll always care what you think, I can’t be a slave to it anymore. Here’s why: I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it. And I was really … I was alive.”
