From T.V. Guide's interview with Ian: (there were a bunch of questions but I'm just posting these ones)
>> I heard you got a standing ovation after your last scene.
Ian: You know, I don't really remember because I just wanted out. I just didn't want to be there. It was too emotional. I had to leave.
*huggles Ian* There there southern boy.
>> Where you satisfied with the story?
Ian: I was a little disappointed at first. I thought it didn't make any sense.
Ian: because the episode isn't about Shannon's grief. Here the one guy that loved her and took care of her just bit the big one and they don't explore that in the next episode? That kind of sucks. As an audience member I would want to see: "Is this personal gonna go off the deep end now?"
And are you ready?
>> Is there a chance that we haven't seen the last of Boone?
Yeah totally, by the end of the season, I'll be back in flashbacks. Here's the other thing I'm gonna be coming back next season, too"
>> wait is Boone really dead?
He's dead as a doornail. Trust me. He's in the ground. Dead, dead, dead.
>> So How will he be back next season?
[Producers] have kind of told me what they had in mind, but I don't think they know in whole yet. But I can imagine its gonna be pretty cool. I wholeheartedly look forward to it.
MARY! You and I are probably right - Boone will come back as an angel with lots of shedding wings to make everyone's beds with!!!
