Well, we finally got to the center of the maze. And surprise! It’s a metaphor! Of course the Man in Black was none too pleased with the fact that all he got for playing was a toy — and neither was Ed Harris. “Basically: ‘What is this shit? What is going on here?’” Harris told Entertainment Weekly of his reaction to when his character finally got to the center of the maze. “Yeah. I gotta tell you, I’m still not quite clear on what the maze was supposed to have represented. But the fact that it didn’t really mean anything, or didn’t exist … I haven’t penetrated that. But I haven’t seen the finale yet.” However, as with any other viewer, what Harris has been impressed by on the show is the acting. “All the actors playing the hosts blow my mind,” Harris said. “It’s very impressive to me, acting wise.” The Man in Black, resting underneath the shade tree.
