Allison Janney Playing Mother Earth on ‘Lost’ is Not a Spoiler

Evangeline Lilly spoke to New York Magazine’s Vulture blog about the final four episodes of “Lost,” including tonight’s episode about the Man in Black, which is rumored to be the best episode of the season. It’s a good interview, but it bothers me that the author, Mike Ryan, feels the need to preface the interview with a spoiler alert for this exchange:

We see that Allison Janney’s going to be on the show next week, in the episode about Jacob and the Man in Black.

I think that she played Mother Earth.

Ryan calls that a “possibly major spoiler.” And I gotta disagree with that. Kate turning out to be a man is a major spoiler. Jack killing Sawyer is a major spoiler. The submarine blowing up is a major spoiler. One of the show’s actors saying that she thinks a guest star has a one-off role as a metaphorical representation of nature is NOT a major spoiler. It’s not even a minor spoiler. It’s just Allison Janney as Mother Earth. It divulges nothing about the plot whatsoever. If you have a problem with that, please come to my apartment and knock on my door so I can punch you in the genitals, because you deserve it.
