Lost Series Finale Recap / Spoilers 6.17/6.18 “The End”: They Were All Dead to Begin With!

‘Lost’ addresses years of questions in finale… Read More @ AP

Of love ‘Lost’

A riveting series’ finale fails to top the six seasons that preceded it. But then, it was always about the journey.

Well, it could have been worse. It could have all been a dream.

Actually, that might have been better, if the finale of “Lost” had ended with some alien life form or surprising human — Ray Bradbury, say, or Terry O’Quinn in a pre-audition nap — opening his eyes from the craziest dream ever.

Instead, it turns out the passengers of Oceanic 815 are all dead, victims, if the end-credit imagery is to believed, of the same tragic plane accident that started the whole thing. Six seasons of polar bears, bachelor pad hatches, landlocked ships, personal submarines and a fleet of fallen airplanes, and it was all apparently some sort of shared afterlife experience. Excuse me, but what are we supposed to do with those religious statues full of heroin, with Fionnula Flanagan’s pendulums, with the crazy Frenchwoman and the time shifts and the whole glorious Richard Alpert back story? And what on Earth are we supposed to do with the Dharma Initiative?… Read Full Article

‘Lost’ – ‘The End’ Recap (Series Finale)

by Jason Hughes, Source:  TV Squad

'Lost' - 'The End'(S06E17/18)
As finales go, ‘The End’ will definitely go down as one of the more satisfying ones; even though it didn’t come close to answering all of our questions about the Island and its special properties. But creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse promised that we would be satisfied with the conclusions of the character arcs, and in that regard I think they’re right.

At two-and-a-half hours, I’m still digesting everything they threw at me. I struggle at times to sort out a typical one hour episode, much less a feature film length one. But I’m glad the finale will linger with me in the weeks to come, because it is bittersweet saying goodbye to ‘Lost.’ There has been nothing like it on television, and there may never be again. That it succeeded at all is a miracle.

The question of when the beta-verse occurred has finally been answered, and while it was 2004, it wasn’t at the same time. The beta-verse was an equivalent to the Purgatory many religions believe in. As I indicated, it was a place where everyone seemed to be doing better; they’d achieved their root desires and passions, but it was by no means perfection. As such, it could not be Heaven. If this is to be equated to that belief system, then it was appropriately Christian Shephard who opened the doors to Heaven, awaiting all of them who’d come together.

The characters we’d come to know and love needed one another, and that’s what the Island gave them. They needed to find one another in the beta-verse as well, to emotionally resolve their experiences on the Island. For most of them, that trigger was love. For Benjamin Linus it was brutality and violence, which is why he did not go into the church (notably of many faiths). He did not feel he was yet ready to transcend, or move on, to the next plane.

It’s still unclear exactly what the Island was, though I’m sure many have theories already. I’m sure I’ll come up with one in the next day or so, but right now it’s a little too fresh and muddled in my mind. That thing i was right about? That Hurley would ultimately take on the mantle of protector of the Island. Perhaps the Island is the spiritual center of our world. The “other Mother” from a couple of weeks ago was the sole guardian for a long time.

It was only happenstance that a set of twins came along to be the next generation, unless you believe it was by design. Only one could be the guardian, so what role could the other play. Perhaps there is only ever supposed to be one guardian, and when there is things are peaceful. Because the Man in Black existed, and became what he was by killing the “other Mother” and enraging Jacob, the Island became more tumultuous.

Hurley selecting Ben as his “#2″ fulfilled Ben’s lifelong passion of being special, but it was done in the real world. In Purgatory, he was a far kinder man than he’d been on the Island, but he didn’t have Alex as his daughter; instead he had her as a student. As it turns out, he may well be on his way to a relationship with Danielle Rousseau, depending on how the properties of that world work.

If the gang in the church go through the light, does that version of Purgatory still exist, and if it does, are they still a part of it for Ben, or will they have all mysteriously vanished? Time has no real sense there, so I’m sure everything can happen however it needs to.

I’m pretty satisfied with the beta-verse being a level of the afterlife, awaiting the opportunity to move on to something even more perfect. The only thing needed to do so, is the ability to forgive. Not only those around them, but most importantly themselves their shortcomings.

At the same time, there’s a part of me that things making it all about explaining the beta-verse was a pretty clever way to get out of explaining most of the mysteries and secrets of the Island. I’d liken it to when a magician uses misdirection to keep the audiences eyes away from the sleight of hand.

I’m not saying I needed to know all of the secrets of the Island, but they certainly left a lot more open to interpretation than I expected. By the way, if Desmond pulling the plug on the light made Jack and MiB-Locke lose their immortality and powers, how was Jack able to transfer the role of guardian of the Island to Hurley? How could the water have still had any of those properties?

We are left to wonder if and how Ben and Hurley got Desmond off the Island, and what happened next to them, but those are questions I don’t mind lingering. I’m not sure why the Island had to be sunk in the beta-verse, or how it would have come to be that way. It’s also still a mystery how they traveled through time, what the light was (as well as its dryer, redder alternate), how you can move an Island, why it is so hard to find from the outside world and vice-versa, who the “other Mother” was, and why the light needs to be guarded. We also never learned why Walt was special.

But again, if it was about satisfying closure for the characters, we got that in spades. Even the characters we didn’t see seemed appropriate. Ana Lucia wasn’t ready yet, as Desmond said, because she’s not ready to ascend. Michael, likewise, is probably not ready to atone for his sins. Perhaps we are to believe that Walt was not dead, even though time didn’t really matter in the beta-verse. I’d like to think rather that he wasn’t in need of this stage of the afterlife an went straight on to what was next.

I enjoyed every single connection moment that trigger memories of their real lives back on the Island, Kate again helped to deliver Aaron, while Charlie and Claire rediscovered their love. Sawyer found it over a candy bar with Juliet, while Sayid saved Shannon from a beating. Locke’s coming when he wiggled his toe is perfect, as that was the defining moment of his personality on the Island. Jack, of course, resisted as long as he could, but eventually succumbed to the flashes of truth when touching the casket that did not contain the body of his father.

Visually, It was appropriate that Jack made his way back to the exact place he awoke on the Island, passing one of the tennis shoes his father was wearing in the casket, and even had Vincent by his side when we had our closing shot of his eye closing, rather than opening. While there are a lot of unanswered questions, we are supposedly promised additional scenes (about 20 minutes of them) on the DVD set that will answer yet more of them, as well as other answers given by the creators.

That ought to give them some extra time to come up with them.

STRAY THOUGHTS & QUESTIONS

–Juliet said “it worked” about the bomb, but it doesn’t appear that it did. They all died at different times to go to the beta-verse, so what worked?

–So they introduced a brand new concept at the beginning of the sixth season, and that’s what they explained in the finale. What about the first five seasons of questions?

–My theory on the people in the church was they were the people who were ready to move on. Some people weren’t there, which means they either weren’t ready or didn’t need this step in their afterlife progression at all, like perhaps Walt and Faraday.

–Perhaps the other people around them in the beta-verse weren’t even those people. It’s more like Aaron was a construct of the beta-verse to serve a purpose, but the real Aaron’s “soul” wasn’t in that body as he, like Walt, maybe didn’t need this time in Purgatory. The same would apply to most of the other peripheral characters.

–What? No Nikki and Paulo? Oh yeah, straight to Hell for those two.

–Why did they have to go back to the Island in the first place? Because Hurley and Jack were off the Island? Nobody else left was good enough? Sawyer was there, and he was a candidate.

–It was a new “Oceanic Six” that left the Island, including Frank Lapidus, who flew them out the first time. This time around it was him, Miles, Richard, Sawyer, Kate and Claire. Only Kate and Frank got to escape the Island twice.

Lost Episode Recap: “The End”

Lost

[Needless to say, SPOILER ALERT! Don't read any further if you haven't finished watching all 4,815 minutes of the Lost series finale. Because we're going there.]

In the Lost series finale, we learned what happened when Oceanic 815 crashed, what the sideways timeline really was, and what’s the next step for our beloved Lostaways.

Namaste, y’all! We’ve finally arrived. Can you believe it? Bear with me, I’m not real great at writing economically about a one-hour episode of the show; this is going to be a long one.

SIDEWAYS

Desmond and Kate

Desmond and Kate are hanging out outside… the concert hall? David’s school? Eloise Hawking’s church? The Widmores’ house? Where are they? Anyhow, he intercepts an Oceanic cargo truck and signs for Christian Shephard’s remains for some reason. “His name is Christian Shephard? Seriously?” Kate asks, for the audience. Desmond also tells Kate that he wants to “leave.” “Leave and go where?” she asks. And he says something I don’t understand about how she’ll figure it out.

Hurley and Sayid

Hurley is being similarly cryptic. “If you stick with me, you’ll be happy you did,” he tells Sayid. They go to pick up Charlie to take him to the concert, but he’s drunk, which is denoted by him saying “soddin'” and “sod” within seconds of each other.

“What if I told you that playing this concert was the most important thing you’ll ever do?” Hurley says. Charlie’s all: Soddin’ sod soddy fishcakes, so Hurley shoots him with a tranquilizer gun. Does this mean that we’re going to hear “You All Everybody” tonight?

Hurley says Sayid is a good guy, and they’re hanging outside a bar to prove it. Two men and a woman stumble into the alley in the midst of a nasty scuffle. When Sayid sees the woman get hit with a fist, he charges out of the car to save her. Surprise! It’s Shannon and Boone, who says all the trouble he went through to get Shannon to L.A. from Australia was worth it. Aw! They recognize each other, and have flashes of their relationship on the island. And then they kiss. It’s one of many teary kisses in this episode, so get out the Kleenex.

Miles, Sawyer and Juliet

Miles shows up at the concert site and sees Sayid in Hurley’s heinous Hummer (say that 10 times fast) and deduces that they’ve escaped. Sawyer springs into action, heading to the hospital to make sure that Sun is protected, since she witnessed the gunfight that got Sayid arrested in the first place. Also: Sawyer calls Miles “Enos,” which was his Dharma nickname for his little lieutenant.

At the hospital, Juliet and Sawyer pass each other at the elevator, but there’s no recognition.

Dr. Juliet Carlson (her maiden name) is there to make sure the baby’s OK, so she’s doing an ultrasound. This triggers the memory for Sun of Juliet having done an ultrasound on her before. Then Jin sees the baby and it all comes flooding back for him too. (Wow, Sun had, like, 100 hairstyles over the course of the series.) With their newfound understanding comes English comprehension — bonus!

[Aside: Boy, Inception, the new Christopher Nolan-Leonardo Di Caprio movie looks pretty nifty, no?]

As we suspected, Juliet is David’s mom and thus Jack’s ex-wife.

Sawyer wants to get dinner, but the cafeteria is closed, so he heads for the vending machines to grab an Apollo bar, but it gets stuck. Juliet shows up and they meet cute and it’s here we hear their conversation about getting coffee that we heard before when Sawyer rescued her from the pit. She helps him dislodge the candy bar. “It worked,” she says. (Sound familiar?) When she retrieves the bar, their hands touch and they have flashes of their time together, which are particularly sun-dappled and beautiful. (That flower gets me every time.)

Jack and Locke

Jack speaks with Locke before the surgery. “I’ll see you on the other side,” he says to Locke, by which he means of the anesthesia, but which we know also means something else.

As Locke is coming out of surgery, Jack notices that his neck is still bleeding.

Jack wants to leave and get to the concert. But Locke says it worked (again!), by which he means the surgery. He can feel his legs, which he demonstrates by wiggling his toes, just like he did in the pilot. This prompts a flash to his island life. “You don’t remember?” Locke asks Jack. Jack has a flash too, but he’s resisting. “We need to go,” Locke says, apropos of nothing. “I need to go see my son,” Jack says, but Locke claims he doesn’t have a son. Jack is confused, particularly when Locke says, “I hope that somebody does for you what you just did for me.” That may just happen, John!

ON THE ISLAND

Sawyer finds Jack doing incantations, but Jack says he doesn’t feel any different. “Howzabout you come down off the mountain and tell us what the Burning Bush had to say for itself?” Sawyer asks. They’re trying to decode Jacob’s instructions. “He’s worse than Yoda,” Hurley says. But Jack has it figured out. They have to head to the well to find Desmond, where Locke is also headed. “I’ve got a bad feeling about this,” says Hurley.

Sawyer sneaks up on Locke at the well and tells Locke and Ben, who are total BFFs all of the sudden, that they’re no longer candidates. “Oh well,” he snarks.

Sawyer gets the jump on Ben, slugs him one last time for the road, and steals his gun. Left alone, Locke lets it slip that he’s literally going to destroy the island. This displeases Ben, since he thought he was going to be the boss. “I’m sorry if I left out the part about it being on the bottom of the ocean,” Locke says with a smirk.

Locke hears the crackle of a walkie, but doesn’t catch on that… Ben is communicating with Miles and Richard. So he is good after all!

Rose, Bernard and… Vincent!

Desmond is with Rose and Bernard, who are still living their blissfully ignorant isolated existence with their canine pal Vincent. They broke their rule not to get involved by rescuing him. Locke and Ben show up, and Locke threatens to kill Rose and Bernard unless Desmond comes with him.

Jack and Locke

When Kate sees Locke across a meadow, something snaps and she fires off several rounds at Locke, which does nothing. He advises her to save her bullets.

“You’re sort of the obvious choice,” Locke snarks when he learns that Jack is Jacob’s replacement. But Jack has knowledge, yo. He knows they’re going to the far side of the bamboo forest to the place he has sworn to protect. “I’m going to kill you,” Jack announces to Locke. How? “It’s a surprise.” A little cutesy, but fine.

Locke announces that it should just be Jack, Locke and Desmond from here on out. As they depart, Hurley says he believes in Jack. He also says “dude.”

They arrive at the golden tunnel.

IN THE GOLDEN TUNNEL

“This doesn’t matter,” says Desmond. “They’re going to lower me into the tunnel and I’m going to go somewhere else,” he says, an apparent reference to his ability to span the timelines. Des tells him about the sideways, but Jack doesn’t believe him, saying “what happened, happened.”

They all go into the tunnel together, connected by a rope. I’m not sure why they’re all cooperating on this. Shouldn’t they be fighting or something?

[Kudos to Target for clever ads: Malfunctioning "Execute" button on the Hatch keyboardcan be remedied with a new $23 one from Target. Smoke Monsters can be kept at bay with a $19.99 First Alert smoke alarm. Geronimo Jackson outro. Nice.]

Jack and Locke lower Des him into the tunnel, where the light is brightest. (P.S. At this point, it’s looking like that leaked call sheet was legitimate.)

Up above, Locke points out the symmetry of the moment. :If there was a button down there to push, we could argue about whether or not to push it,” he says of their differing opinions.

Desmond reaches bottom and there’s a golden pool with a giant stone peg in the middle. He steps into the pool and we hear Smokey-like noises and Des starts howling. And his nose is bleeding. Uh-oh. He makes it to the center and removes this stopper of sorts, and we start hearing stretchy noises like the flashes, but then they slow down and stop. Then the pit glows a foreboding red and he’s howling again.

“It looks like you were wrong. Goodbye, Jack,” Locke says. Jack punches him and he bleeds. “Looks like you were wrong too,” Jack counters. Obviously, with the golden light snuffed, they can hurt each other. Locke smashes him in the head with a rock and runs away.

ON THE CLIFF

Locke is beating feet over the cliffs through pouring rain to his escape boat, but Jack is there ready to stop him. Locke takes out his knife and Jack jumps, Matrix-style, with his fist outstretched. They fight — this is more like it. (This cliff is making my fear of heights go into overdrive, and the Diet Coke buzz isn’t helping things.) The cliffs are shearing off in giant chunks at the island begins to deteriorate. Locks stabs Jack in the side, right where an appendix scar might be, ay? Locke holds the knife at Jack’s neck — a-ha! Just when it looks dire, Kate shoots Locke: “I saved you a bullet,” she barks. Jack pushes Locke off the cliff and he lies dead on the cliffs below.

The weather clears up, and Sawyer, Ben and Hurley arrive. The island is still crumbling, so Jack sends his friends away. says he has to go back down into the pit and reverse whatever it is that Desmond did. “Let the island sink, Jack,” Kate says. But he says he can’t.

Jack and Sawyer shake hands. Ben says he’s going down with it. (So then why doesn’t he fix Desmond’s mistake?) Hurley says he’s coming with Jack because he’s afraid of heights and doesn’t want to climb down the cliffs. I’m with you, Hugo. Kate and Jack kiss, and it’s one for the ages. They say they love each other.

But Kate and Sawyer have their moment too, as they jump off the cliffs together to make their way to Locke’s boat.

Hurley

Jack tells Hurley that he’s going to die. He says that Hurley needs to be his replacement. “I believe in you, Hurley,” Jack says, returning the favor. (Island still disintegrating, folks!) He takes a plastic water bottle and conducts the exchange-of-power ceremony, and then Hurley’s the man.

BACK IN THE PIT

They lower Jack into the pit, well, actually, they kind of drop him. Desmond is alive, so Jack ties him to the rope to help him escape. “I’ll see you in another life, brutha,” Jack says to Desmond.

Jack lifts the stone into place and the water and golden light return, but Jack is kind of toast.

Hurley and Ben raise Desmond, who’s going to be OK. Jack’s gone. Hurley frets that taking care of the island is his job now, and asks Ben to be his right-hand man. He accepts and is honored.

Jack wakes up on the rocks, just like the Man in Black did.

AT THE CONCERT

Meanwhile at the museum, Charlotte is backstage, waking up Charlie. “I was shot by a fat man.” He says. “Do you know where the band is?” Charlotte asks a man in a porkpie hat. It’s Daniel Faraday/Widmore, who will be performing on the piano with the band.

Des, Kate, Claire, and David are all at the same table, No. 23 incidentally. Dr. Pierre Chang introduces Daniel Widmore accompanied by Drive Shaft.

Charlie sees Claire in the audience. They exchange a look and Claire appears to go into labor. Kate follows her  — hmm, to deliver her baby perhaps?

Backstage they stumble around in improbably short miniskirts, and yes, Kate is going to deliver the baby in the dressing room. It’s an echo of what happened on the island, and they both have flashes of Aaron’s birth and their eyes well up with tears. (Full disclosure: So do mine.) Charlie shows up with a blanket. He hands it to Claire, their hands touch, they flash and then they understand.

So now what?

Eloise asks Desmond if he’s going to take her son and he says no.

“It’s over,” Kate says to Jack, of the concert. They sort of recognize each other from the plane, but also from somewhere else. “No, that’s not how you know me,” Kate says. They touch. “I’ve missed you so much,” Kate says. He’s confused. “You don’t understand, but if you come with me, you will,” she says cryptically.

Miles and Richard

Miles and Richard paddle over to Hydra Island to blow up the plane. Richard gets his first gray hair, another consequence of the light going out, and says for the first time he realizes he wants to live.

There are dead bodies floating in the water from the sub explosion, but one is alive: Lapidus! He nixes Operation Ajira Kaboom, because he says, if we leave, that thing won’t have a plane anymore. “In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m a pilot,” he says, a line obviously borrowed from an old Nash Bridges script.

Claire is guarding the island with a gun. Richard invites her to go with them, but she refuses, so they leave her.

Richard and Lapidus are fixing the plane. Conveniently, they have a waterproof blowtorch. Miles said he worked for a contractor one summer, which clearly qualifies him to repair the hydraulic system on the plane… with duct tape!

But no matter, it works. They get the plane started. At the last possible moment, Kate and Sawyer convince Claire to join them on the plane, even though she thinks she’s too crazy to be Aaron’s mom, and they’re off. Just in time too: The ground is cracking beneath them.

AT THE CHURCH

After the concert, Locke arrives at a church, the church. He sees Ben, and they exchange words of mutual admiration and, in Locke’s case, of forgiveness. Locke gets out of his wheelchair and walks inside.

Ben and Hurley exchange similar pleasantries, and Ben says he won’t be joining them as he still has things to take care of.

Kate and Jack arrive, and Kate tells him that they’re going to have Christian’s funeral. Jack goes around back and Kate says she’ll be inside… once he’s ready… to leave. Hmm…

Jack goes inside and sees the coffin. He touches the coffin and everything flashes — all the people he met on the island. But it’s an empty coffin. But that’s OK because Christian is there and he looks pretty alive to me.

“How are you here right now?” Jack asks. “How are you here?” Christian replies, and it dawns on Jack that not only did he die, but so did all his friends. They hug.

Jack asks why they’re all here now and Christian replies, “There is no now here.”

He explains that they’re not really leaving but moving on. Where to? “Let’s go find out,” Christian says.

THE END

Once inside the sanctuary, everybody is there, and it’s a dearly departed guest list that provokes a lot of questions:  Libby, Juliet, Penny, Desmond, Boone, Shannon and Charlie are all there, to name several. Hugs are exchanged, and it’s all very touching, as you can imagine that the series wrap party was perhaps not all that different from this moment.

They take their seats, Christian opens the doors and a bright light floods in.

This scene is intercut with Jack, on the island, stumbling through the jungle, collapsing in pretty much the same spot where he woke up after the crash of Oceanic 815. Overhead, the plane comes into and then out of his field of view, and his eye, in signature close-up, finally closes. Vincent arrives and snuggles up next to his old pal, and every bad veterinarian’s visit comes flooding back, and I am 11 again. (All dogs go to heaven, Lost! What is he doing there?)

Over the credits we see the wreckage of Oceanic 815, lapping ocean waves its only score, the site of the deaths of all these odd, quirky, inspiring characters who we will miss dearly.

Now obviously, this 150-minute masterpiece is not without its huh moments. For one, when did Penny die? And why were Daniel and Ana Lucia deemed “not ready”? And if everyone was already dead, is the island just like one big redemption boot camp?

Snippet on Finale from TV Guide Magazine

And for those of you who have completely abandoned hope of any happily-ever-afters for these poor lost souls following the recent string of island casualties, Sonja Walger, whose lucky Penny turns up in the finale, offers us a ray of hope. When I asked her to tell me who gets the best ending, she said, “We all do and you’ll see why.”

How Will Lost End?

The show’s stars offer teases about the May 23rd series finale

With the recent deaths of Sun, Jin, Sayid and Charles Widmore, not to mention Kate’s shooting and Richard’s projection by Smokey into the jungle, I was starting to worry that none of my favorite Lost characters were going to end up with happy endings. But I’ve found new hope after several of the show’s stars offered me some encouraging teases about the ABC drama’s two and a half hour May 23 series wrap-up.

When I asked Scotty Caldwell, who plays Rose, to pick her favorite death scene, she looked at me like I was oblivious.

“Who died?” she asked. “They’re dead??” Hmm….What are we to make of this? Could the characters’ flashsideways lives possibly be the ones that stick? Prodded further, Scotty hinted that all of the characters “get what we gave” and are taken care of in the end.

Adds Nestor Carbonell (Richard), “The whole finale is all about everyone’s resolutions.”

And get this. When I asked Sonja Walger, who plays Penny, to tell me who gets the best ending, she said rather cryptically, “We all do and you’ll see why.” While Rebecca Mader (Charlotte) concurs, “All of us” are well served, Michael Emerson singles out his character’s ending out as perhaps the best.

“All vanity aside, I love the way Ben ends,” says Michael. “It’s true to his entire, ambiguous arc. He sort of ends and he sort of doesn’t end.”

But Scotty also tells me that more than one ending was shot. “I’m not absolutely sure about the final hows, wheres and whens because they shot more than one,” she says. “So I’ll be waiting like everyone else to see what they air.”

And according to one well-placed source, the finale, titled “The End,” may not be the ultimate ending of the story. I’m hearing twenty additional minutes of story (not just deleted footage or an alternate ending) will be included in the season six DVD to be released August 24, along with what executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse say will be some pretty spectacular packaging show fans will be unable to resist.

Lost: Will we get to see Sawyer and Juliet go Dutch for coffee?

Check out our video Q&A with them about the series finale of Lost, airing Sunday at 9/8c on ABC:

Lost: Will We Get to See Sawyer and Juliet Go Dutch for Coffee?

Source:

Lost – Elizabeth Mitchell

Ever since the Season 6 premiere of Lost, fans wondered what Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) meant when she offered a coffee date to Sawyer (Josh Holloway) in which they could go Dutch. With the series coming to an end Sunday, TVGuide.com caught up with Mitchell to find out whether Juliet and Sawyer will be reunited and whether she’s satisfied with the conclusion of her storyline.

Getting Lost: Who is Jack’s baby mama?

TVGuide.com: The perception is that we’re going to see Juliet back having that coffee date with Sawyer. Can we expect any surprises?
Elizabeth Mitchell:
There probably will be surprises. I wouldn’t trust anything one way or another. I was happy to do what they had me do. I had a great time and it’s fun knowing, but there’s so much I don’t know about the finale.

TVGuide.com: Did you know what those lines about going Dutch for coffee meant when you said them in the premiere?
Mitchell:
I did because I thought that was something I should know in the playing of it. I had a feeling that I knew what they were and I was kind of given the go-ahead to do it the way that I thought that it was. So I did have somewhat of an idea, yes. I didn’t go into it blind.

TVGuide.com: Do you feel you’re more knowledgeable about it now?
Mitchell:
Yeah, or maybe about the same. They definitely gave me enough ammunition to do what I needed to do. I feel like I was pretty much right on in the way that I played it. The producers are mischievous, though. [Laughs] Who knows what they’re going to do. Any day now I’m expecting them to call and say they’re not going to use my stuff [for the finale]. I know they filmed things that weren’t there and other things to throw people off. They’re serious about keeping this secret.

Damon Lindelof: Jacob and the Man in Black are not “the epitome of what Lost is”

TVGuide.com: Were you satisfied with the ending they gave to Juliet?
Mitchell:
To a degree. The thing about Juliet is that she was such a complex character and I had so much invested in her story. We could do about six hours and I still wouldn’t feel it was wrapped up. I enjoyed what they had me do. I thought it was authentic.

TVGuide.com: A lot of fans believe that Juliet is Jack’s ex-wife in the sideways universe.
Mitchell:
Oh, that would be pretty cool. We’ll see if everybody is right or not. [Laughs] I really wish I could say.

Lost kills off fan-favorites – what does it mean for the finale?

TVGuide.com: How do you feel coming to the end of Lost?
Mitchell:
It’s funny, it was so strange saying goodbye to everybody. Some people did it in different ways: Some out partying, some people were doing their own thing. I sat really quietly with Evangeline [Lilly] for a little bit, and I sat really quietly with Terry [O'Quinn] and I just thought about how much I really like these people. I remember saying goodbye to the guys when I did my final thing and everyone was saying thank you. It’s got that feeling of “job well done,” where everybody feels like they gave as much as they had to give and felt good about it. It’s a happy goodbye, rather than a “we should’ve done more” goodbye.

Do you think Juliet is Jack’s baby mama?

Getting Lost: Who Is Jack’s Baby Mama?

Lost – Matthew Fox

Let’s hope the series finale of Lost (Sunday at 9/8c) answers this nagging question: Who is the mother of Jack’s son?

Getting Lost: What does the finale hold?

Juliet is the fan favorite to be the baby mama. Though Elizabeth Mitchell tells TVGuide.com that she knows what Juliet’s dying words about “going Dutch” mean, we ponder if they were said to Jack (Matthew Fox) and not Sawyer (Josh Holloway)?

Damon Lindelof: Jacob and the Man in Black are not “the epitome of what Lost is”

Damon Lindelof: Jacob and the Man in Black Are Not “The Epitome of What Lost Is”

Lost

Given all the time Lost has spent lately on Jacob (Mark Pellegrino) and the Man in Black, you might think they’re the key to the show or something.

They’re not.

“It would be mis-categorizing to think this is the epitome of what Lost is,” executive producer Damon Lindelof tells TVGuide.com. “Obviously the island was there before these babies were born, and lots of things were going on before they came there. What those stories are isn’t relevant to the story we told, which is the crash of Oceanic 815 and what the ultimate fates of the survivors are.”

Getting Lost: Who will take Jacob’s place?

Okay, but in that case, why so much attention on the dueling brothers? The penultimate episode, which Lindelof screened last week at an event in Los Angeles, still leaves plenty of questions unanswered going into the 2 ½-hour finale (airing Sunday at 9/8c). Lindelof’s explanation of what to expect echoes a line Jacob delivered to the Man in Black in the Season 5 finale: “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.”

“I wish that we could say that the finale is going to be enormously definitive,” Lindelof says. “We found that when we told people that we’ve got definitive answers coming, it’s not as definitive as the fans want it to be, therefore there’s this ongoing and vociferous debate about what things mean.

Lost kills off fan-favorites – what does it mean for the finale?

“All we can say is: Lost is only ending once,” he adds. “There’s only one finale. There’s not a question mark at the end of the end. There’s not a dot, dot, dot. This is our story and it’s over. Hopefully there’s going to be a lot of interpretation in its wake.”

Whatever the ending, Lindelof is grateful to have made it this far, he says.

Catch up on Lost before the series finale by reading our recaps

“This was a pilot where the question asked secondary to ‘What is the monster?’ was ‘How will you sustain this as a TV series?'” he says. “If I had said, ‘We’ll be fine for 120 episodes, and then we’ll end it,’ nobody ever would’ve believed it, including me. I think the show is a blessing and we’re really grateful to be here.”

‘LOST’ finale spoilers teased by executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse

ABC News Photo LOST executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse hint at what answers to popular questions by viewers will be made clearer, ahead of the May 23 finale of the six-season-long mystery series, and give some insight on the newest mysterious character – the Man in Black.

Potential spoilers ahead!

The Man in Black, played by Titus Welliver, was  introduced this season as the brother of the mysterious island “guardian” Jacob. The Man in Black was revealed as a being made of black smoke, nicknamed the Smoke Monster, or “Smokey”, that had appeared throughout the series since it began in 2004.The Man in Black inhabits the bodies of the dead, such as character John Locke, and is violent, but his intentions and his actual name remain a mystery.

In a recent interview with ABC News, including reporter Diane Sawyer, the LOST creators would not reveal the Man in Black’s name or say whether or not fans would find out what it is in the finale, but Lindelof said his anonymity was no coincidence.

“One of the things about him is because he doesn’t look like the Man in Black anymore, people started calling him Locke,” he said.

“He has this affect on the characters – they’re confused. They know that it’s not Locke but they start calling him Locke and he looks like Locke for a reason, as confusing as that sounds. The fact that he doesn’t have a name is part of his ability to confuse and bedazzle the other castaways,” Lindelof said.

Cuse hinted that The Man In Black may be able to take on the forms of more than just humans, adding: “We do know he can do some pretty cool shape-shifting.”

Other mysteries remain and Lindelof said viewers “will get significant illumination on Walt, the explanation behind the polar bears and why women are having fertility issues, before all is said and done. We can’t promise that it’s going to happen on Sunday night but w can promise you will get siginificant illumination on that from the show itself.”

Getting Lost: Finale Super Spoiler

Another Interview with Damon and Carlton – Finale Details

Interview with a Spoiler Source about the Finale

DARKUFO: Do you feel fans should be spoiled for this conclusion/last episode?
SOURCE: I don’t think they should.

DARKUFO Did you enjoy the Season Finale?
SOURCE: Yes I did, very much.

DARKUFO What ranking would you give it for our episode table?
SOURCE 10 out of 10.

DARKUFO What have been your other top episodes of the series and which episode is the finale the most similar to in your opinion?

SOURCE My top five episodes of the series in no particular order are…
Walkabout
Man Of Science Man Of Faith
The Other 48 Days
Through The Looking Glass
316

And I think the finale feels the most like The Incident. And by that I mean on island events with a multi centric alt story in place of the multi centric Jacob visitation scenes in The Incident.

DARKUFO: I myself am really looking forward to how they are going to end the show myself.I’d like to see an ending that leave us not
questioning what we have just seen but more along the lines of looking back over the previous 6 seasons and re-evaluating it. For Reference my Favourite episodes are.

Walkabout
Ab Aeterno
The Other 48 Days
The Man Behind the Curtain
Through The Looking Glass

DARKUFO Without spoiling the details, what parts of the Finale were most satisfying?

SOURCE Geez, I don’t know how to answer that without being too spoilery. All the alt “realization” moments were very satisfying.

Since every finale has a Locke/Jack showdown of sorts this one culminating with a huge cliffside fight didn’t disappoint. I was satisfied with Kate’s romantic choice but I know a good group of people might not be.

DARKUFO Were there any parts that you found disappointing?

SOURCE Not really. I have disappointments with the series as a whole when I think about certain elements that I thought were important and ended up being pointless in retrospect. The story definitely ends, it feels very much complete, but like other fans I got sucked into the online discussion and theories and a lot of things people have read into the show weren’t, or aren’t, really there. Example: There isn’t any Ji Yeon or grown up Aaron. Unless they show up in the last act that no one really knows about besides the actors involved.

DARKUFO How many scenes from your knowledge were missing? IE secret scenes? What makes you think you know what is in the last scene?

SOURCE I don’t know for certain what the last scene is, or how many are in the last act. But my guess is Jacks “realization” moment in the alt. And when you look at how long the scenes are throughout The End when characters in the alt have their “Realization” moments I can safely predict the last act is going to just be that Jack moment.

Maybe there is one last scene that will surprise me. But after seeing the brilliant structure to the stories on this show it would be out of place to show too much of something else.

DARKUFO Which of the mysteries were explained well in the finale? Which ones have been left unanswered or at a loose end?

SOURCE Surprisingly there are more questions. People are still alive in the on island timeline who are also alive in the Alt world. I think they answered the mythology questions before The End starts. The End is character payoff.

DARKUFO Which character came out the best from the Finale?

SOURCE Kate probably just because they really redeemed her character.

DARKUFO Wow, really. Kate gets a pretty bad rep in the comments on our site so that’s going to be interesting to see the reaction after the finale has aired.

DARKUFO Favourite scene of the finale?

SOURCE Locke’s “realization” in the alt.

DARKUFO Saddest Scene of the Finale?

SOURCE Maybe the end just because its over? This episode was full of tear twinging moments but they are the happy variety.

DARKUFO Most shocking scene of the finale

SOURCE When Locke is killed on island. I guessed they would kill the smoke monster but its shocking because of who kills him.

Episode 6.17/18 – The End – ABC Promo 2

Interview with Jack Bender

We’re assuming the Lost finale was not shot chronologically. Can you tell us what to look for on Sunday so we can know when we’re watching what the actual last scene shot was?
I can tell you there was some discussion about what would be the last shot, and I decided that I wanted the last shot to involve Terry O’Quinn and Matthew Fox. And it was not an entirely popular choice on the production end because it meant keeping the actors a little longer and not getting them off of the clock. Blah blah bah. I insisted the last shot of our series was not going to be something arbitrary. In fact, we did three takes of it. And it involved a crane. It was a shot in the picture and it involved a crane with the two of them. We rehearsed it and we did take one and I said, “Well, that was wonderful guys, but I’m not ready to let go yet.” So we did it again and I said, “That was also wonderful, but I can’t say it yet.” And then, on the third take, I said, “Well, I guess I have to say it now — that’s a wrap.” And that was our last shot, at 5:30 in the morning as the sun was coming up.

Spoilers from the Times Talks Live: LOST event

- Just got back, not too many spoilers…but Carlton did let out that we will see Walt again before all is said and done.
– they also referenced that one of the final scenes involves a lot of characters and that the very final scene has been known since season 1
– One of the fans in the audience asked if Desmond’s line to Jack in the 2nd season when they first meet in the stadium and Desmond tells Jack “You have to lift it up” would have any relevance to the finale. Damon & Carlton said “you will not be disappointed.”
– The bigger one, though, was confirmation that we will see Walt in the finale. Yes, Walt.
– Eloise’s knowledge is relevant for the finale.
– Walt will be back in some form.
– Damon would not directly address why Smokey was pulling Locke down that hole in the S1 finale, so that could be relevant. Same with whether or not Jacob is actually good, and whether or not there’s anything worth protecting down in the Light Cave.
– There will be a Star Wars reference in the first 7 minutes of the finale.
– Hurley was involved in the final scene (we knew this already).
– A clip was shown, pretty much an extended version of the Sawyer/Ben/Flocke one posted here. Sawyer tells Locke that he thinks Desmond is needed for destroying the Island, Locke says yes. Sawyer then takes Ben’s gun, punches him, and walks away while saying that the group he’s a part of “aren’t candidates anymore”. Locke then remarks that the Island will be at the bottom of the ocean when he’s done with it, prompting Ben to question his loyalty (Ben was promised the Island in return for his help, and assumed that its destruction was figurative and not literal). Locke then invited him to join him on his boat as he watches the Island sink. He kneels down to the ground near the well and notices pawprints.
He realizes that a dog had been there.
– Also, mirrors are very relevant.
– When Ben asks why Flocke isn’t running to chase him down Flocke explains that he intends to use Desmond to destroy the Island. Naturally Ben isn’t too pleased.
– The extended clip ends with Flocke examining the ground near the well and stating that a dog had been there.
– Widmore was lying when he said Jacob visited him

LOST Retrospective – LOST cast says Goodbye

Latest from Fancast – May 18th

Don’t give anything specific away, but is this week’s ‘Lost’ a spectacular episode with lots of questions answered, or is it just so-so? – Steven via Facebook
Spectacular is a strong word (and one typically associated with Teri Hatcher’s… comedy chops), but yeah, ‘What They Died For” is very solid. Among other things, it features, like, the best campfire story ever, a reveal about someone we thought wasn’t a candidate, and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ finale-levels of bloodshed. There’s also a significant development regarding Jacob’s successor.

Will we see Rose and Bernard one more time before ‘Lost’ ends? – James
Yes, in Sunday’s series finale. And when the marrieds resurface, they’re still wielding a “Don’t harsh my mellow” ‘tude as their idyllic existence is rudely intruded upon (and then some). L. Scott Caldwell, who plays Rose, told me she herself isn’t fond of Rose’s lack of hospitality, seeing as the fans had come to regard the character as “quite peaceful.” So in her mind, R&B “were probably eating wild mushrooms or something else that changed their attitude!”

So, Juliet/Sawyer – happily ever after? Yes? – Ryan
Interpret Josh Holloway’s assessment of Sunday’s two-and-a-half hour series finale as you wish: “[It's] un-freakin’-believable… Everything I hoped it would do, it did.”

New TV Guide Scans

Nestor Carbonell and Henry Ian Cusick tease the end of ‘Lost’

Henry Ian Cusick and Nestor Carbonell were never going to tell a table of reporters anything about the ending of “Lost,” but in Carbonell’s case, he has a good excuse: He doesn’t know.

The show’s stars, including Cusick and Carbonell were given scripts containing 10 of 11 actors. Cusick received the 11th act, but Carbonell did not. [Yes, that's probably a spoiler regarding the presence, or lack thereof, of Desmond and Richard Alpert in the last act of "Lost." Perhaps. Or maybe not.]

“I never got the last act and I didn’t ask for it after because I just really want to watch it with America how it ends,” Carbonell explained at a Saturday (May 15) press day for many of the shows in the Disney-ABC empire. “I want to be surprised. I was happy with how they specifically with my character and with what I read about they resolved a lot of the dynamics of the characters. They did an amazing job and I’m looking forward to the final resolution.”

Actually, there’s some confusion as to whether or not Cusick does, in fact, know how “Lost” ends.

“I think in act 11 there is a secret scene that no one got,” Cusick says. “Only the people who are in it, but nobody knows. Everyone is keeping very quiet about it.”

That’s pretty ambiguous, right?

Asking Cusick and Carbonell whether the finale will please “Lost” fans earned similarly ambiguous responses.

“What’s great about the show is that there are so many talking points,” Cusick says. “There are so many walks of life getting together to talk about the show and so many issues to be brought up and that’s exactly what the ending will bring up. People will be talking about it for weeks afterwards and that’s what the show has always done”

Adds Carbonell, “I think that’s a really good point. It has people talking about Biblical themes, mythological themes and literature, science verses religion. The big questions in life — incredible questions. At the heart of the show are these characters that they created, these really complex characters layered with so much misbehavior. No one is completely good and no one is completely evil. They are just well drawn out characters and that’s the heart of the show. I think the finale, without giving anything away, will bring some resolution to a lot of the dynamics between those characters and relationships”

Breaking News – Lost Series Finale Extended by 30 Mins

Get ready for more “Lost.”

The producers of ABC’s hit drama have shot so much crucial material for the show’s hugely anticipated finale that the network has agreed to extend the last episode by an extra half hour.

When the “Lost” finale airs on Sunday, May 23rd, the episode will run from 9 to 11:30 p.m. The overrun will air instead of the local news, with the “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to Lost” post-finale special remaining at 11:30 p.m. ABC is expected to announce the plan on tonight’s episode of Kimmel.

Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof just completed post-production on the finale” — on Monday night. Both sent out identical Tweets: “We’re done. Amen.”

The supersizing of the finale is the latest adjustment to what might as well be called “The ‘Lost’ Weekend.” ABC is airing an “enhanced” (pop-ups) version of the show’s original two-hour pilot on May 22. On Sunday there’s a two-hour retrospective titled “Lost: The Final Journey,” followed by the finale and Kimmel post-show. Source: Hollywood Reporter

Lost‘s Mark Pellegrino: There Will Be More Answers

Source: TVGuide.com

Lost

This week’s mythos-heavy episode of Lost left fans with — you guessed it — more questions than answers. With just two episodes remaining before we find whether the show’s mysteries will ever be explained or if its producers have just been messing with us, we tracked down Jacob himself, Mark Pellegrino. He talks about who’s good, who’s bad, the father of Jacob and the man/boy in black (Titus Welliver), and whether any of it matters.

Lost kills off fan-favorites – what does it mean for the finale?

TVGuide.com: Last night’s Lost was quite the head scratcher.
Pellegrino:
I’ve been hearing that. I’ve been hearing quite a bit about that. [Laughs]

TVGuide.com: A lot of fans griped after the episode because they still felt confused about the mythology. Will there be more explanation in the last few episodes?
Pellegrino:
There will be. There will be some ends tied, but I can’t guarantee that for everyone. People have been debating the meaning of the show and the various subplots for years, and I wonder if all of the questions are going to be answered. That’s a tall order, but I think many people will be satisfied.

TVGuide.com: All along we thought Jacob was a good guy, but he’s not as good as we thought.
Pellegrino:
On a certain level, the line between good and evil has an indistinctive blurring. I think there’s a lot of crossover in the show. That doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m not good, though. Things will become clearer in the next episode, definitely. I think you’ll make up your mind one way or the other for sure, but it’s not going to be clean and pristine. You’ll definitely come down on one side or the other.

TVGuide.com: How did Jacob go from a mama’s boy to a man of confidence?
Pellegrino:
I think there’s a transformation that takes place when my mother gives me the wine. It opens certain doors for me. I think living for almost 2000 years — just the simple act of living, thinking and turning over ideas — can lead, hopefully, to a kind of wisdom.

Watch full episodes of Lost in our Online Video Guide

TVGuide.com: Why can Jacob leave the island, as he’s done to visit his candidates, but the Man in Black cannot?
Pellegrino:
This is a question that I’ve wondered about myself actually. I don’t think the answer is directly provided in any episode, but it could be the fact that I’m a guardian of sorts and therefore have a certain power to exit when I want to. He can leave as long as it’s directly for a certain purpose. After I threw the Man in Black in the pit, he’s chained there. He’s become incorporeal, and he’s in something worse than hell.

TVGuide.com: Does the Man in Black still view Jacob as a brother?
Pellegrino:
I think he does. There’s still that brotherly bond between the two of them. Even though The Man in Black has changed dramatically and he’s gone from loving me to wanting me dead, there’s still that bond between us.

TVGuide.com: Who’s their daddy and does it matter?
Pellegrino:
Some Roman, I imagine. Does it matter? No, I think in the end, no. I like to think that my daddy is Marcus Aurelius.

TVGuide.com: I’m sure you can’t say who takes Jacob’s place as the guardian of the island, but can you say whether someone will actually take up the position?
Pellegrino:
That remains to be seen.

Pellegrino:
You will be seeing me some more, yes.

Episode 6.15 – Across The Sea – Latest from TV Guide Magazine

What’s The West Wing’s C.J. doing on the May 11 episode of Lost? No one’s officially saying anything about Emmy winner Allison Janney’s mystery character (identified only as ‘Woman’), though online speculation has it that she may be playing the mother of Mark Pellegrino’s Jacob or Titus Welliver’s Man in Black – two of the few recognizable faces in this trippy third-to-last installment titled, “Across the Sea.”

“She’s incredible, but we can’t give away who she’s playing,” says executive producer Damon Lindelof, confirming only that Allison’s role is a major one. “We will confirm that she will be a woman.” (Dang, there goes my big island tranny creation theory.)

Fellow executive producer Carlton Cuse adds, “We were so happy that she was able to do this. It was really hard for her because she was getting ready to shoot a pilot, but she squeezed us in. Then once we saw her in this part we were like, ‘How could anyone else have done this but Allison Janney?”

“In fact,” adds Lindelof, “we’ve been talking about this character for awhile and how nervous we were that we wouldn’t find the right actress. When we first started talking about this character in the writers room we called her ‘Allison Janney’ under the assumption that we wouldn’t be able to get her.”

But the two EPs got on the phone with Allison and had “a lovely conversation,” tells Lindelof. “She’d seen enough of the show to ‘get’ it, but wasn’t completely dialed in. So we explained the part and said it was as close to writing a role for a particular person as we’d ever done. And she moved heaven and earth to go down to Hawaii for eight days.”

Cuse says the mystery role required “incredible presence,” which Allison demonstrated on her long-running NBC drama. “She had so much presence in The West Wing,” he recalls. “She was in charge and had the strength we needed.”

Hmmm… So, since my tranny creation theory’s out the window, might it be possible that Janney’s character was sent to the island on official business by… Martin Sheen’s President Bartlet? Not even in a flash-sideways!

‘Lost’ producers, actors speak about tonight’s ‘they did not just do that!’ shockers

EW

the-candidateImage Credit: Mario Perez/ABCI can only imagine what you’re thinking. I can only imagine what you’re feeling. And if I had to put a voice to those thoughts and emotions, I suspect it would sound something like this: “You know, the last thing I want to read right now is a couple thousand words from Doc Jensen about the relevancy of existential literature, progressive rock, and the films of Andrei Tarkovsky to Lost. What I really want right now is to hear from exec producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof about why they did what they did tonight during ‘The Candidate.’” Spoilers ahead, Losties. SERIOUS MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED “THE CANDIDATE,” STOP READING RIGHT NOW.

But back to your thoughts. “Forget the title of the episode. ‘The Candidate’ had absolutely nothing to do with finding and naming Jacob’s replacement and instead had everything to do with making me feel really, really, REALLY crappy! How dare they take down Jin and Sun in a sinking submarine! How dare they make the Korean couple’s daughter Ji-Yeon an orphan! And how dare they kill Sayid! So what if he died a heroic death and by trying to smother the Locke-ness Monster’s bomb? He’s Sayid! We love him! Why did they have to die? WHY?”

“Because now you know this show is willing and capable of killing anyone,” says Damon Lindelof, suddenly materializing in my office in a puff of brimstone accompanied by Carlton Cuse. (Actually, that isn’t true. I interviewed the producers over hamburgers… but I’ll tell you that boring story in Friday’s Doc Jensen column. On with the important stuff!) Why was it so important for Lost to prove that it can be downright homicidal during its last season? To establish once and for all that the Locke-ness Monster is the true villain of season 6 and quite possibly all of Lost. “There is no ambiguity,” says Cuse. “He is evil and he has to be stopped.”

Or, as Terry O’Quinn told me in a recent interview: “Puffy is one nasty mo-fo.”

To be clear, the producers are not heartless bastards. They’re only semi-heartless bastards. They knew fans would be devastated (and angry) about the deaths and were pretty broken up themselves about offing three beloved creations. “When we watched the death scenes ourselves, it was brutal,” says Cuse. “[But] the story always comes first.” Lindelof elaborates: “In many ways, the season was structured as a long con on behalf of the Man In Black. Once we revealed that Locke was the Monster, we knew the audience would immediately mistrust him, and we would have to spend at least a dozen episodes of Locke trying to convince the audience that he did not have malevolent intention, that all he wanted to do was get off The Island. But everything he was doing was leading up to one moment, which was [trying to] get the candidates in one fell swoop. He knew if he killed just one of them, everyone would know what he was up to.’”

Says Cuse: “There will be very little debate at the end of this episode that [Fake Locke] is evil and bad and has to be stopped. The main narrative reason for him killing our main characters is to establish how much of a bad guy he is and to clearly identify him as the antagonist rolling into the end of the series.”

Lindelof recognizes that there’s something “brutal” about killing Jin and Sun just one episode after their long-awaited reunion — which, he says, is exactly what made the lovers such an apt choice for making a statement about Fake Locke’s malevolence. “At least they got to die in each other’s arms, so they’d have some sense of victory,” he says. And Sayid? Lindelof explains: “Sayid’s entire season-long arc has basically been, if you tell him that he is evil, you can convince him he is evil. But if you tell him he is good, maybe you can convince him he is good. We basically decided that in a moment of pure instinct, if he did something, if he sacrificed his own life in favor of saving the other people’s lives, that would convey to the audience, ‘This guy was actually a good guy.’”

The good news for fans of Lost and fans of Jin, Sun, and Sayid in particular is that they are technically still alive — in the Sideways world. “Still, it’s bittersweet,” Yunjin Kim told me in a recent interview. “They were kept separate for so long, and then they came together to die together.” She found it “beautiful” that Sun and Jin were given an end that served as an affirmation of their love and the heroic sacrifices they made for each other. “We’ve come full circle,” she says. “Sun came back to The Island [and] risked her life to save her friends and Jin, and then Jin does the same thing back.” When I asked her how she prepared for Sun’s final Island moments, Kim told this story: “Right before we started shooting, [director] Jack Bender took me aside and told me about story that he read a long time ago, about this woman who was missing her dead husband, and how she had this beach ball that he blew up before he died. Every day she took a little breath from the beach ball. And that really got me right into the emotional core of where I needed to be to play that scene. Can you imagine that woman, taking that breath little by little every day, just to feel her husband’s presence?”

Daniel Dae Kim’s thoughts on the end of Jin and Sun? “They were the Romeo and Juliet of the show, and the fact they didn’t have a happy ending does make me sad,” says the actor, who then expanded on the greater significance of the deaths to the show — but I’m afraid sharing his insights (including his take on the fate of Ji Yeon) at this point would be a bit too spoilerish. What was it like shooting his watery demise? “It was pretty difficult that day,” says Kim. “Shooting in water is never easy. But the crew was considerate and made the water warm for us, in more ways than one. Let’s just say certain members of the crew who were in that water for a very, very, very long time without ever leaving. I’ll just leave it at that.”

Now that’s evil.

I’m still processing the chilling events of “The Candidate,” and my own thoughts and feelings about the deaths of Sun, Jin, and Sayid. My recap of the episode will post sometime tomorrow. In the meantime, use the message boards below to start the discussion — and express your grief.

[Spoiler Warning: This article contains details from Tuesday night's episode of Lost, including which characters died. Reader, beware!]

After waiting nearly two years for a sweet reunion, Sun (Yunjin Kim) and Jin (Daniel Dae Kim) took their last breath in the submarine — a Charlie Pace-like death — in Tuesday night’s episode of Lost. So, was that really the end of Sun and Jin Kwon? Yunjin Kim discusses what we’ll see of the star-crossed lovers in the final episodes, along with teasing the last scene of the series and more.

TVGuide.com: I’ll admit that I did shed a few tears after your death in Tuesday’s episode. The Sun and Jin reunion was so short-lived!
Yunjin Kim:
It was a brilliant way to end Sun and Jin’s life on the island. Because of the way the story is going, especially once we get to Episode 15, 16 and 17, it’s moving at a pretty fast pace. Let’s say if Jin dies alone, Sun would only grieve for Jin for two seconds and we’d have to move on with the storyline. It was a very romantic death.

TVGuide.com: The episode was jampacked with death, especially with Sayid (Naveen Andrews) taking one for the team.

Yeah, I think we all become heroes at the end as far as the island story goes. I have a feeling that’s how the series is going to end. Sayid’s death is very abrupt and ours is very drawn out. Daniel and I both had water pouring on top of our heads while shooting it, so it was hard to even keep our eyes open. It was physically demanding.

TVGuide.com: How did you feel when the producers told you that your characters were going to die?
Kim:
As soon as I got on the phone with Damon Lindelof, he said “This phone call is not one of those phone calls.” He told me how it was going to happen and I actually thought it was a beautiful ending to both of the characters. It will only propel the other survivors to go after Locke [Terry O'Quinn], and have a very good reason to go after Locke as aggressively as they do in the final episodes.

Lost‘s Jorge Garcia: The Man in Black cannot lie

TVGuide.com: A lot of fans have been waiting two years for Sun and Jin to be reunited. Do you expect to meet some angry fan reaction?
Kim:
I think that’s where the writers wanted the fans to be: To be very angry at Locke. It’s just the way the story needs to end. Then again, I think the fans will realize that it’s not the end of Sun and Jin’s storyline, we still have flash sideways. Our story doesn’t just end with the death in the submarine. It will continue until the end.

TVGuide.com: We still get more Sun and Jin?
Kim:
Yeah, they will complete [their sideways] storyline and fans will be very satisfied at the end. The finale will be a very nice closure to this long journey.

TVGuide.com: What’s going to happen to Ji Yeon in the regular universe since both her parents just died?
Kim:
In the normal universe, Sun’s mother is taking care of her. That’s how we left the story, so I guess Sun’s parents will take over the custody. Again, because there’s another lifeline, and Sun is actually pregnant with Ji Yeon at this point, we will have a closure in that storyline.

TVGuide.com: What can you tell us about the Losties going after Locke?
Kim:
He is a force to be reckoned with. It’s Locke vs. the castaways. Whoever is leftover will fight Locke to the end. The conclusion to Locke’s story, that is part of the secret last act.

Getting Lost: What does the finale hold?

TVGuide.com: How do you feel now that the show is coming to a close?
Kim:
It’s very bittersweet. It’s great that I survived six years of Lost, literally meaning my character has survived to the very end. I’m proud to be a part of this amazing journey. I have my emotional days, but some days I’m really good and I’m really looking forward to what’s coming next. I recently got married, so it will be interesting to find out what I’ll be doing after Lost.

TVGuide.com: Will Sun and Jin get a happy ending after all?
Kim:
We’ll see. I believe in happy endings, but this is Lost, so you never know. [Laughs]

What did you think of Sun and Jin’s submarine death?

Lost Season 6 Premiere Episode Recap: “LA X (Parts I and II)”

Matthew Fox and Terry O’Quinn

What’s old is new again: Tuesday’s episode of Lost answered several questions, but it also raised several others. We learned what happened when Juliet bashed Jughead with such purpose, who’s still alive, who died and who — spoiler alert! — rose from the dead. We finally got confirmation on those rumors that Season 6 would show us what happened if Oceanic 815 landed safely in Los Angeles. We even got to see a glimpse of the long-missing Claire. But we also met some new characters, whose roles in the big picture are intriguing, but are, naturally, as yet unclear. It’s a heady brew, as usual, and I’m already half in the bag….read more

Upcoming Episode Spoilers – Some Big Ones

Hurley speaks to someone very close to Richard’s past and conveys this person’s message to Richard. Definite tearjerker on par with when we first meet Bernand and he finds out Rose is okay in season 2.
– Man in Black has a true nemesis – and it’s not Jacob.
-“Happily Ever After” marks Desmond’s full return – his centric episode as well. His “flash-sideways” feature Charlie, Daniel, Penny, Mommy, Jack, Widmore, and Claire. Widmore and Desmond share some of that famous scotch. Des has to make a very, very big sacrifice.
– “Everybody Loves Hugo” marks the return of Libby and Michael. Michael is a ghost on island and Libby and Hurley date in his “flash-sideways.” Locke gets run over. Man can’t catch a break, can he?

Widmore, Ben, Locke, Jacob, Man in Black… will we ever find out who the good guys really are on Lost?
MICKEY: We asked Josh Holloway, who portrays Sawyer, one ethically complicated dude, what he thinks. “I think the whole beauty of this show and the intrigue has been the constant question of what is good and what is bad and what is right or wrong,” he says. “That is the entire crux of the show, so no, you’re never going to get a clear picture. You’re going to be left with that question to answer for yourself.” Next you’ll be telling me the numbers are just… numbers!

Latest from DocJensen – Damon and Carlton Answers

EW: The whole idea of flash-sideways and the plan to use season 6 to show us a world where Oceanic 815 never crashed — how long has that been in the works? Why did you want to do it?
DAMON LINDELOF: It’s been in play for at least a couple of years. We knew that the ending of the time travel season was going to be an attempt to reboot. And as a result, we [knew] the audience was going to come out of the “do-over moment” thinking we were either going start over or just say it didn’t work and continue on. [We thought] wouldn’t it be great if we did both? That was the origin of the story.
CARLTON CUSE: We thought just doing one [of those options] would inherently not be satisfying. Since the very beginning of the show, characters started crossing through each other’s stories. Part of our desire [in season 6] is to show that there’s still this kind of weave, that these characters still would have impacted each other’s lives even without the event of crashing on the Island. Obviously, the big question of the season is going to be: How do these [two timelines] reconcile? However, for the fans who have not watched the show closely, that’s an intact narrative. You can just watch the flash sideways — they stand alone all by themselves. For the fans who are more deeply embedded in the show, you can watch those flash sideways, compare them to what transpired in the flashbacks and go, “Oh, that’s an interesting difference.”
LINDELOF: Right out of the gate, in the first five minutes of the premiere, you get hit over the head with two things that you’re not expecting. The first is that Desmond is on the plane. The second thing that we do is we drop out of the plane and we go below the water and we see that the Island is submerged. What we’re trying to do there is basically say to you, “God bless the survivors of Oceanic 815, because they’re so self-centered, they thought the only effect [of detonating the bomb] was going to be that their plane never crashes.” But they don’t stop to think, “If we do this in 1977, what else is going to affected by this?” So that their entire lives can be changed radically. In fact, it would appear that they’ve sunken the Island. That’s our way of saying, “Keep your eyes peeled for the differences that you’re not expecting.” Some of these characters were still in Australia, but some weren’t. Shannon’s not there. Boone actually says that he tried to get her back. There are all sorts of other people that we don’t see. Where’s Libby? Where’s Ana Lucia? Where’s Eko? These are all the things that you’re supposed to be thinking about. When our characters posited the “What if?” scenario, they neglected to think about what the other effects of potentially changing time might be and we’re embracing those things.

That said, are you saying definitively that detonating Jughead was the event that created this new timeline? Or is that a mystery which the season 6 story will reveal?

LINDELOF: It’s a mystery. A big one.
CUSE: We did have some concern that it might be confusing kind of going into the season. To clear that up a little bit: The archetypes of the characters are the same and that’s the most significant thing. Kate is still a fugitive. If you were to look at the Comic-Con video, for instance, that now comes into play. There was a different scenario in that story. She basically blew up an apprentice plumber as opposed to killing her biological father/stepfather. Those kind of differences exist, but who the characters fundamentally are is the same. If it becomes too confusing for you, you can just follow the flash sideways for what they are. It’s not as though there’s narrative that hangs on the fact that you need to know that this event was different in that world, in the flashback world versus the sideways world. That’s not critical for being able to process the narrative this season.

Is there a relationship between Island reality and sideways reality? Will they run parallel for the remainder of the season? Will they fuse together? Might one fade away?

LINDELOF: For us, the big risk that we’re taking in the final season of the show is basically this very question. [Lindelof then explains the show has replaced the trademark “whoosh!” sound effect marking the segue between Island present story and flashbacks or flash-forwards, thus calling conspicuous attention to the relationship between the Island world and the Sideways world.] This is the critical mystery of the season, which is, “What is the relationship between these two shows?” And we don’t use the phrase “alternate reality,” because to call one of them an “alternate reality” is to infer that one of them isn’t real, or one of them is real and the other is the alternate to being real.
CUSE: But the questions you’re asking are exactly the right questions. What are we to make of the fact that they’re showing us two different timelines? Are they going to resolve? Are they going to connect? Are they going to co-exist in parallel fashion? Are they going to cross? Do they intersect? Does one prove to be viable and the other one not? I think those are all the kind of speculations that are the right speculations to be having at this point in the season.

LINDELOF: But it is going to require patience. We’ve taught the audience how to be patient thus far, so while they’re getting a lot of mythological answers on the island early in the season, this idea of what is the relationship between the two [worlds] is a little bit more of a slow burn.

Did Jughead really sink the Island? And is it possible that the Sideways characters are now caught in a time loop in which they might have to go back in time and fulfill the obligation to continuity by detonating the bomb?

LINDELOF: These questions will be dealt with on the show. Should you infer that the detonation of Jughead is what sunk the island? Who knows? But there’s the Foot. What do you get when you see that shot? It looks like New Otherton got built. These little clues [might help you] extrapolate when the Island may have sunk. Start to think about it. A couple of episodes down the road, some of the characters might even discuss it. We will say this: season 6 is not about time travel. It’s about the implications, the aftermath, and the causality of trying to change the past. But the idea of continuing to do paradoxical storytelling is not what we’re interested in this year.

Latest from Kristin – 3rd Feb

Next Week Will Blow You Away: After you see the final 10 minutes of next week’s episode, it will become increasingly clear what the entire final season of Lost is leading up to. (I smell a war coming on!)
Get Ready for Two Surprising Reappearances: (1) A certain someone you thought was dead will be back, and how he or she returns, and what it means for the future of the other Losties on the island, will have your brain spinning. (2) Someone else appears in Los Angeles next week that I did not know was returning at all, and it’s awesome.
There Will Be Some Shipper Moments Next Week: Kate will have a tender moment with Jack, and she’ll also have a revealing moment with Sawyer, and there will definitely be some clear indication as to where the romantic storylines (or lack thereof) will be heading this season.
Richard Alpert Was a Slave?! The SMIB mentioned that Richard was in chains. There has long been talk that crew of the Black Rock (allegedly a mining vessel) were slaves, and when we’ve visited the ship in the past, skeletons were found shackled together. So was Alpert on the Black Rock? The good news is we will find out. Nestor Carbonell tells me: “You’re going to get all your answers: Why doesn’t he age? Where’s he from? What his powers might be? Who he is? And there is one specific episode that deals with all of that. I was blown away by what they wrote.” Can. Not. Wait.
Claire and Sayid Will Have Something in Common. Something big.

Kristin’s Red Carpet Interviews from the Premiere Party.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VotWEhZvEFs

television at its very best. It is, as they say, a There is at least one moment that will make you shriek out loud in tonight’s two-hour Lost premiere, which is “game-changer.”

So what else is in store for this groundbreaking series’ final season? What about Walt? The Smoke Monster? Claire’s relation to Jack? I just chatted up the entire cast and show masterminds Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, and without giving away anything too spoilery (what’s the fun in that?), here’s what you absolutely need to know…

Will We See the Man in Black Again? Smokey? Jacob? Find out in the video above in the fun little game of “False, True or Hell No, I Won’t Tell You” that I played with some of the cast and producers. (I got much more scoop from them but it needs to hold til after the premiere so stand by for that.)

The Premiere Rocks. I’ll say it again: Tonight’s two-hour premiere is my favorite episode since Lost’s groundbreaking pilot five years ago. The show is instantly broader and more meaningful than it was before. It’s as if the fate of the whole world now depends on what is happening on this island…

There Will Be Answers. “Exactly 73 questions will be answered in the final season,” boss Carlton Cuse tells me, and naturally, he’s joking. “We’re going to answer the questions that matter to our characters,” Damon says in all seriousness. “If they care about it, then we’re going to answer it. If it affects their lives, than we’re going to deal with it.”

There Will Be Family Matters. Urkel is guest starring! I keed. When asked if Claire (Emilie de Ravin) will find out Jack is her brother, Matthew Fox tells me, “Yes, I think you’ll get an opportunity to see that.” And here’s my favorite tease from Michael Emerson (Ben) about the final season: “In the 13 episodes [we've shot so far], huge chucks of the puzzle have fallen into place. Some quite shocking, and some really satisfying. Some of those puzzle pieces answer whole families of questions. So the audience can have hope for resolution and satisfaction.” When asked if he specifically chose the word “families” for a particular reason, Emerson says knowingly: “You know that nothing is accidental with Lost.” Chills, meet spine.

What About Walt? Though Damon and Carlton say there are no current plans to bring Malcom David Kelley (Walt) back, his onscreen father is hopeful. “I’m hoping he’s the next leader of the island,” Harold Perrineau (Michael) tells me. “He starts it all over again. In 2012, Lost is back with Malcolm. He’s 20 feet tall now and can kick my ass.”

Sayid Might Be OK. His character was shot in the stomach when we last saw him, but as Naveen Andrews says in the clip above, “Lots of people have been in dire situations, right? And somehow, some way they pull through.”
The Very End Will Satisfy Some of You. “The ending we promise you will be very emotional,” Carlton explains. “That’s what we think matters, what happens to the characters.

The Premiere Was Leaked. In case you didn’t hear, the premiere episode was leaked on YouTube via fan videos taken at Sunday’s Hawaii beach event, but here’s the truly incredible thing: Very few of you have actually clicked to watch it (many vidoes received only a few hundred hits), recognizing that you didn’t wait all this time to watch some lame shaky FlipCam version of this visually inspiring series. And that is why I heart you.

Just Wait Till You See Next Week’s Episode. More on that in tonight’s first Lost Redux (should be posted about 10 pm ET/7 pm PT), but I now know what’s in store for next week and in all seriousness could not sleep last night thinking about all the ramifications of it. It will be an entirely different series with an entirely different framework after the end of next Tuesday’s episode.

Why I’m Not Saying More Till You See It: As Daniel Dae Kim puts it, “Because people have waited so long for answers, and because they’re coming out, it’s probably best to be a little more tight-lipped than usual.” Wise words from a guy I adore, so I’m heeding ‘em.
That said, I would absolutely love to meet any of you who are interested in “watching” the premiere with me in the comments section below tonight from 8 to 10 pm ET (sorry, West Coasters, but you can read the exchange afterward?). Join me if you’d like, and I’ll answer the questions I can?If you promise to hold me tight when Terry O’Quinn’s big moment is revealed.
Enjoy.

TV Guide’s 13 Questions with Damon and Carlton

TVGuide.com: Is the reset going to be a theme of this season or are you playing with the audience?
Cuse: I think it wouldn’t be Lost if we weren’t playing with the audience a little bit, but by the end of the premiere, you’ll have a sense of what we’re doing. We’re still doing the same thing we’ve always done on the show, which is island storytelling and off-island storytelling. It just now starts to take on a different form in the final season. Like every season, each season is a distinct entity, so by the end of the premiere, you should have a sense of what Season 6 is shaping up to be like.

TVGuide.com: Michael Emerson said instead of storylines coming together, the threads keep spreading out. Do you feel like everything will come together at the end or will it keep spreading?

Cuse: I’m not sure I agree with Michael. He might have been toying with you, because we do feel like there’s a certain circularity to the show. In the same way that the show started, we’re going to come back around to some of the main characters from the first season of the show. To us, the most important thing is, what are these character’s destinies? What are their fates? What’s going to happen to them? Those are the questions we’re really interested in answering. Along the way, we’re going to tackle some of the mythological biggies, like what’s the smoke monster? You’ll learn more about the nature of the island. You’ll learn more about Jacob and the Man in Black. Those are the things we feel are important as opposed to what kind of research was the Dharma Initiative doing on polar bears.

TVGuide.com: Will there be more on the numbers or will that never really be answered?
Cuse: There is definitely more about the numbers in Season 6. I think it will be an individual decision as to whether you’ll walk away satisfied by the answer because there’s a fundamental conundrum where any question begets another question. It’s the Big Bang conundrum. The universe started with the Big Bang, but once you accept that you ask what came before the Big Bang. So at a certain point you can’t definitively answer a question in a way that doesn’t lead to other questions. Everyone is going to have to find their comfort level with the show.

TVGuide.com: Will the final season be no holds barred? Can anyone die?
Cuse: The mantra of the final season in a certain way is, “Anything can happen, be prepared.” We are nearing the end, so if there are any constraints that govern a series, they really go away in the final season. We always felt like Lost was at its best when it was really surprising. We did things that were unexpected. We do have a few surprises up our sleeves for this season, which we think are really exciting.

TVGuide.com: You already know who is going to die in the end?
Cuse: Yes, we have our game plan for how the season will end. Significant discisions like that have definitely been resolved by now. We’re still writing the scripts, but we, ourselves, know the fates of the characters.

TVGuide.com: What can you say of the Man in Black?
Cuse: People who are curious about the Man in Black will get more answers this season for sure. We recognize that that character is mysterious and cryptic and we promise that we will give you more details about who he is.

TVGuide.com: Is Jacob really dead?
Cuse: Is Jacob really dead? Yeah, I mean we’ve always said that when characters die on Lost they die. He was stabbed, he was dead. Of course, dead characters show up in other incarnations. We have a narrative structure of our show which allows us to have our cake and eat it too. Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean we don’t see you on the show, but was Jacob killed by Ben? The answer is yes.

TVGuide.com: Yes, and Harold Perrineau is among those who’s back despite being dead.
Cuse: Yeah, and he’s back on the show this year, so you’ll see Harold on the show and that’s really exciting for us, but he did die on the freighter.

TVGuide.com: Is Kate going to end up with Jack or Sawyer or end up alone?
Cuse: Well, we know what’s going to happen to her, but we’re not going to tip what’s happening to her. But we definitely know what the resolutions of the characters are and we know that people care a lot about the Kate, Jack, Sawyer, Juliet quadrangle and that will be something that you’ll definitely get some resolution on this season.
Lindelof: And I think it’s great that you actually present that Kate might end up alone as an option, because a lot of people say, “Is it going to be Jack or is it going to be Sawyer?” But that presupposes way too many things that they’re not fully aware of in the final season. So there may be a couple of other options that are in play that people aren’t considering yet.

Separately, there’s a scene with Jin working in a hotel, and Sun was there too. Also filming in the same location was a Keamy/Omar scene, and Mikhail was there and spoke Korean. There was also a Jin scene involving the same community college where Hurley’s asylum was filmed. And a scene at a nice house with Hurley and Alpert. (SpoilersLost)

Is this Italian site posting the real series finale script pages?

Breaking News – Lost Series Finale Extended by 30 Mins

Get ready for more “Lost.”

The producers of ABC’s hit drama have shot so much crucial material for the show’s hugely anticipated finale that the network has agreed to extend the last episode by an extra half hour.

When the “Lost” finale airs on Sunday, May 23rd, the episode will run from 9 to 11:30 p.m. The overrun will air instead of the local news, with the “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to Lost” post-finale special remaining at 11:30 p.m. ABC is expected to announce the plan on tonight’s episode of Kimmel.

Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof just completed post-production on the finale” — on Monday night. Both sent out identical Tweets: “We’re done. Amen.”

The supersizing of the finale is the latest adjustment to what might as well be called “The ‘Lost’ Weekend.” ABC is airing an “enhanced” (pop-ups) version of the show’s original two-hour pilot on May 22. On Sunday there’s a two-hour retrospective titled “Lost: The Final Journey,” followed by the finale and Kimmel post-show.

Episode 6.15 – Across The Sea – Latest from TV Guide Magazine

What’s The West Wing’s C.J. doing on the May 11 episode of Lost? No one’s officially saying anything about Emmy winner Allison Janney’s mystery character (identified only as ‘Woman’), though online speculation has it that she may be playing the mother of Mark Pellegrino’s Jacob or Titus Welliver’s Man in Black – two of the few recognizable faces in this trippy third-to-last installment titled, “Across the Sea.”

“She’s incredible, but we can’t give away who she’s playing,” says executive producer Damon Lindelof, confirming only that Allison’s role is a major one. “We will confirm that she will be a woman.” (Dang, there goes my big island tranny creation theory.)

Fellow executive producer Carlton Cuse adds, “We were so happy that she was able to do this. It was really hard for her because she was getting ready to shoot a pilot, but she squeezed us in. Then once we saw her in this part we were like, ‘How could anyone else have done this but Allison Janney?”

“In fact,” adds Lindelof, “we’ve been talking about this character for awhile and how nervous we were that we wouldn’t find the right actress. When we first started talking about this character in the writers room we called her ‘Allison Janney’ under the assumption that we wouldn’t be able to get her.”

But the two EPs got on the phone with Allison and had “a lovely conversation,” tells Lindelof. “She’d seen enough of the show to ‘get’ it, but wasn’t completely dialed in. So we explained the part and said it was as close to writing a role for a particular person as we’d ever done. And she moved heaven and earth to go down to Hawaii for eight days.”

Cuse says the mystery role required “incredible presence,” which Allison demonstrated on her long-running NBC drama. “She had so much presence in The West Wing,” he recalls. “She was in charge and had the strength we needed.”

Hmmm… So, since my tranny creation theory’s out the window, might it be possible that Janney’s character was sent to the island on official business by… Martin Sheen’s President Bartlet? Not even in a flash-sideways!

Preview of ‘Lost’ Season 6: Destiny Found

Source: Ace Showbiz TV News
An eye opens in a sudden, in the teaser for ‘Lost’ season 6 which will be the final round for the whole island’s mystery.

Preview of 'Lost' Season 6: Destiny Found See larger image” has ended its fifth season run on Wednesday, May 13 with a cliffhanger when Juliet was sucked into the hole and woke up with the bomb near her. She hit the bomb with a rock and it was the end of the episode. To keep fans in excitement, ABC has posted a very short sneak peek of the 6th season where an aye opens up in shock. No clue to who the green eye belongs to. In the preview also, it is revealed that the big idea is “Destiny Found” and it could as well be the ultimate reason why they are all stranded on the island in the first place, not the kind of destiny that each of the characters thought. The new season will begin in 2010, reportedly in January. Meanwhile, a few thoughts on the sixth season had been thrown in recent weeks and here is the summary. Likely to be back for another round are Ben, Juliet and Claire. Regarding Ben’s return, Michael Emerson who plays the character said that Ben’s work is not done in the season finale but he is also still crossing fingers for it because nothing is set in stone in “Lost”. Juliet’s comeback was teased by EW with no other details while Claire’s involvement was suggested by Carlton Cuse. “Claire is a wonderful part of the show and the audience can rest assured that they will see (her) again on Lost,” Cuse said. For one thing, the sixth season will be the final season for the series. Creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have planned the whole story to conclude in the 6th year, with the story coming to full circle. “Season six will feel a lot like season one,” Lindelof teased. “The focus comes back to the characters with whom we began. We’ve been winnowing away everyone else who came along. The Tailies are gone, only Miles is left of the Freighter Folk and only Juliet is left of The Others. We’re getting down to the end now.”

Matthew Fox Tells Us How Lost Ends (and How Season Six Begins)

Source: Kristin on E!Online

Matthew Fox says Lost creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse will prove they knew where they were going all along when the show ends in “an incredibly powerful, very sad and beautiful way. I think is going to be pretty awesome.”

The only castmember to know what that crazy smoke monster is and how the show ends said, “I think it is going to be very satisfying and cathartic and redemptive and beautiful. I’ve talked to Damon pretty extensively and every time I talk to him it’s sort of surprising how moving it is just to talk about it.”

But before we get the very end of our adventure, Fox exclusively reveals to us the beginning of Lost season six…

The sixth season will begin with an examination of what happened after Juliet seemingly detonated the hydrogen bomb. As usual, Fox says, “It’s very surprising and probably fairly confusing initially to the audience.”

“Like a third of the way in [to the season] I would guess we are going to [settle] in one time frame and it will be very linear—no more flashbacks, nothing. It will be on the island and sort of a final conflict to the end,” say Fox.

He assured fans that all the crazy storylines introduced in earlier seasons will be resolved, and said that the conflict between Jack and Locke (Terry O’Quinn) “will come head to head” this season, but wouldn’t divulge more than that. When asked what would happen if he did, he said, “Some guys would pull up outside this building in a white van and masks and I’d never be seen again.”

At the 35th Annual Saturn Awards in Burbank, Calif., we asked Lost‘s Michael Emerson how Ben (who once crushed hard on Juliet) would react to the news that she had nuked herself, and Emerson said: “Ben’s no longer in a position to entertain romantic notions. I don’t think there’s room for romance in Ben’s world right now. As much as he admires her on a lot of levels, I don’t think he can do anything about it.” We also asked, on a scale of one to 10, how he would rate Elizabeth Mitchell‘s awesomeness? “It would be a number higher than 10.” Word.
The best we can offer you on this fine afternoon is Lost show runner Carlton Cuse saying nothing about Lost at the Saturn Awards, but saying it darn well:

Watch With Kristin: How much of the speculation on the Internet about Lost season six is correct? Give us a percentage.
Carlton Cuse:
I’m not really good at math, so no speculation about that.

WWK: You’re the best stonewaller ever.
CC:
This is what we like to call stonewalling season, where we try to preserve radio silence—but we’ll be coming out of Comic-Con with some cool things, I think, so we’re excited about that.

WWK: There is one very important question.
CC:
OK.

WWK: Can you get Josh Holloway to come to Comic-Con?
CC:
Mmmm…That’s a good idea, which I will pitch to the appropriate parties. Josh is great. We would love it if Josh would come.

WWK: And here’s a question you’re not going to answer. Season one: Jack’s the most important person ever. Season four: Ben’s the key to everything. Season five: Jacob. If you had to pick a character who was the most central to what Lost is in the end, who would it be?
CC:
You’re right, I’m not going to answer that.

1. We tried.
2. Tell Holloway in the comments that he should appear on Lost‘s final Comic-Con panel.

Hurley speaks to someone very close to Richard’s past and conveys this person’s message to Richard. Definite tearjerker on par with when we first meet Bernand and he finds out Rose is okay in season 2.
– Man in Black has a true nemesis – and it’s not Jacob.
-“Happily Ever After” marks Desmond’s full return – his centric episode as well. His “flash-sideways” feature Charlie, Daniel, Penny, Mommy, Jack, Widmore, and Claire. Widmore and Desmond share some of that famous scotch. Des has to make a very, very big sacrifice.
– “Everybody Loves Hugo” marks the return of Libby and Michael. Michael is a ghost on island and Libby and Hurley date in his “flash-sideways.” Locke gets run over. Man can’t catch a break, can he?

Widmore, Ben, Locke, Jacob, Man in Black… will we ever find out who the good guys really are on Lost?
MICKEY: We asked Josh Holloway, who portrays Sawyer, one ethically complicated dude, what he thinks. “I think the whole beauty of this show and the intrigue has been the constant question of what is good and what is bad and what is right or wrong,” he says. “That is the entire crux of the show, so no, you’re never going to get a clear picture. You’re going to be left with that question to answer for yourself.” Next you’ll be telling me the numbers are just… numbers!

Latest from DocJensen – Damon and Carlton Answers

EW: The whole idea of flash-sideways and the plan to use season 6 to show us a world where Oceanic 815 never crashed — how long has that been in the works? Why did you want to do it?
DAMON LINDELOF: It’s been in play for at least a couple of years. We knew that the ending of the time travel season was going to be an attempt to reboot. And as a result, we [knew] the audience was going to come out of the “do-over moment” thinking we were either going start over or just say it didn’t work and continue on. [We thought] wouldn’t it be great if we did both? That was the origin of the story.
CARLTON CUSE: We thought just doing one [of those options] would inherently not be satisfying. Since the very beginning of the show, characters started crossing through each other’s stories. Part of our desire [in season 6] is to show that there’s still this kind of weave, that these characters still would have impacted each other’s lives even without the event of crashing on the Island. Obviously, the big question of the season is going to be: How do these [two timelines] reconcile? However, for the fans who have not watched the show closely, that’s an intact narrative. You can just watch the flash sideways — they stand alone all by themselves. For the fans who are more deeply embedded in the show, you can watch those flash sideways, compare them to what transpired in the flashbacks and go, “Oh, that’s an interesting difference.”
LINDELOF: Right out of the gate, in the first five minutes of the premiere, you get hit over the head with two things that you’re not expecting. The first is that Desmond is on the plane. The second thing that we do is we drop out of the plane and we go below the water and we see that the Island is submerged. What we’re trying to do there is basically say to you, “God bless the survivors of Oceanic 815, because they’re so self-centered, they thought the only effect [of detonating the bomb] was going to be that their plane never crashes.” But they don’t stop to think, “If we do this in 1977, what else is going to affected by this?” So that their entire lives can be changed radically. In fact, it would appear that they’ve sunken the Island. That’s our way of saying, “Keep your eyes peeled for the differences that you’re not expecting.” Some of these characters were still in Australia, but some weren’t. Shannon’s not there. Boone actually says that he tried to get her back. There are all sorts of other people that we don’t see. Where’s Libby? Where’s Ana Lucia? Where’s Eko? These are all the things that you’re supposed to be thinking about. When our characters posited the “What if?” scenario, they neglected to think about what the other effects of potentially changing time might be and we’re embracing those things.

That said, are you saying definitively that detonating Jughead was the event that created this new timeline? Or is that a mystery which the season 6 story will reveal?

LINDELOF: It’s a mystery. A big one.
CUSE: We did have some concern that it might be confusing kind of going into the season. To clear that up a little bit: The archetypes of the characters are the same and that’s the most significant thing. Kate is still a fugitive. If you were to look at the Comic-Con video, for instance, that now comes into play. There was a different scenario in that story. She basically blew up an apprentice plumber as opposed to killing her biological father/stepfather. Those kind of differences exist, but who the characters fundamentally are is the same. If it becomes too confusing for you, you can just follow the flash sideways for what they are. It’s not as though there’s narrative that hangs on the fact that you need to know that this event was different in that world, in the flashback world versus the sideways world. That’s not critical for being able to process the narrative this season.

Is there a relationship between Island reality and sideways reality? Will they run parallel for the remainder of the season? Will they fuse together? Might one fade away?

LINDELOF: For us, the big risk that we’re taking in the final season of the show is basically this very question. [Lindelof then explains the show has replaced the trademark “whoosh!” sound effect marking the segue between Island present story and flashbacks or flash-forwards, thus calling conspicuous attention to the relationship between the Island world and the Sideways world.] This is the critical mystery of the season, which is, “What is the relationship between these two shows?” And we don’t use the phrase “alternate reality,” because to call one of them an “alternate reality” is to infer that one of them isn’t real, or one of them is real and the other is the alternate to being real.
CUSE: But the questions you’re asking are exactly the right questions. What are we to make of the fact that they’re showing us two different timelines? Are they going to resolve? Are they going to connect? Are they going to co-exist in parallel fashion? Are they going to cross? Do they intersect? Does one prove to be viable and the other one not? I think those are all the kind of speculations that are the right speculations to be having at this point in the season.

LINDELOF: But it is going to require patience. We’ve taught the audience how to be patient thus far, so while they’re getting a lot of mythological answers on the island early in the season, this idea of what is the relationship between the two [worlds] is a little bit more of a slow burn.

Did Jughead really sink the Island? And is it possible that the Sideways characters are now caught in a time loop in which they might have to go back in time and fulfill the obligation to continuity by detonating the bomb?

LINDELOF: These questions will be dealt with on the show. Should you infer that the detonation of Jughead is what sunk the island? Who knows? But there’s the Foot. What do you get when you see that shot? It looks like New Otherton got built. These little clues [might help you] extrapolate when the Island may have sunk. Start to think about it. A couple of episodes down the road, some of the characters might even discuss it. We will say this: season 6 is not about time travel. It’s about the implications, the aftermath, and the causality of trying to change the past. But the idea of continuing to do paradoxical storytelling is not what we’re interested in this year.

Latest from Kristin – 3rd Feb

Next Week Will Blow You Away: After you see the final 10 minutes of next week’s episode, it will become increasingly clear what the entire final season of Lost is leading up to. (I smell a war coming on!)
Get Ready for Two Surprising Reappearances: (1) A certain someone you thought was dead will be back, and how he or she returns, and what it means for the future of the other Losties on the island, will have your brain spinning. (2) Someone else appears in Los Angeles next week that I did not know was returning at all, and it’s awesome.
There Will Be Some Shipper Moments Next Week: Kate will have a tender moment with Jack, and she’ll also have a revealing moment with Sawyer, and there will definitely be some clear indication as to where the romantic storylines (or lack thereof) will be heading this season.
Richard Alpert Was a Slave?! The SMIB mentioned that Richard was in chains. There has long been talk that crew of the Black Rock (allegedly a mining vessel) were slaves, and when we’ve visited the ship in the past, skeletons were found shackled together. So was Alpert on the Black Rock? The good news is we will find out. Nestor Carbonell tells me: “You’re going to get all your answers: Why doesn’t he age? Where’s he from? What his powers might be? Who he is? And there is one specific episode that deals with all of that. I was blown away by what they wrote.” Can. Not. Wait.
Claire and Sayid Will Have Something in Common. Something big.

Kristin’s Red Carpet Interviews from the Premiere Party.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VotWEhZvEFs

television at its very best. It is, as they say, a There is at least one moment that will make you shriek out loud in tonight’s two-hour Lost premiere, which is “game-changer.”

So what else is in store for this groundbreaking series’ final season? What about Walt? The Smoke Monster? Claire’s relation to Jack? I just chatted up the entire cast and show masterminds Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, and without giving away anything too spoilery (what’s the fun in that?), here’s what you absolutely need to know…

Will We See the Man in Black Again? Smokey? Jacob? Find out in the video above in the fun little game of “False, True or Hell No, I Won’t Tell You” that I played with some of the cast and producers. (I got much more scoop from them but it needs to hold til after the premiere so stand by for that.)

The Premiere Rocks. I’ll say it again: Tonight’s two-hour premiere is my favorite episode since Lost’s groundbreaking pilot five years ago. The show is instantly broader and more meaningful than it was before. It’s as if the fate of the whole world now depends on what is happening on this island…

There Will Be Answers. “Exactly 73 questions will be answered in the final season,” boss Carlton Cuse tells me, and naturally, he’s joking. “We’re going to answer the questions that matter to our characters,” Damon says in all seriousness. “If they care about it, then we’re going to answer it. If it affects their lives, than we’re going to deal with it.”

There Will Be Family Matters. Urkel is guest starring! I keed. When asked if Claire (Emilie de Ravin) will find out Jack is her brother, Matthew Fox tells me, “Yes, I think you’ll get an opportunity to see that.” And here’s my favorite tease from Michael Emerson (Ben) about the final season: “In the 13 episodes [we've shot so far], huge chucks of the puzzle have fallen into place. Some quite shocking, and some really satisfying. Some of those puzzle pieces answer whole families of questions. So the audience can have hope for resolution and satisfaction.” When asked if he specifically chose the word “families” for a particular reason, Emerson says knowingly: “You know that nothing is accidental with Lost.” Chills, meet spine.

What About Walt? Though Damon and Carlton say there are no current plans to bring Malcom David Kelley (Walt) back, his onscreen father is hopeful. “I’m hoping he’s the next leader of the island,” Harold Perrineau (Michael) tells me. “He starts it all over again. In 2012, Lost is back with Malcolm. He’s 20 feet tall now and can kick my ass.”

Sayid Might Be OK. His character was shot in the stomach when we last saw him, but as Naveen Andrews says in the clip above, “Lots of people have been in dire situations, right? And somehow, some way they pull through.”
The Very End Will Satisfy Some of You. “The ending we promise you will be very emotional,” Carlton explains. “That’s what we think matters, what happens to the characters.

The Premiere Was Leaked. In case you didn’t hear, the premiere episode was leaked on YouTube via fan videos taken at Sunday’s Hawaii beach event, but here’s the truly incredible thing: Very few of you have actually clicked to watch it (many vidoes received only a few hundred hits), recognizing that you didn’t wait all this time to watch some lame shaky FlipCam version of this visually inspiring series. And that is why I heart you.

Just Wait Till You See Next Week’s Episode. More on that in tonight’s first Lost Redux (should be posted about 10 pm ET/7 pm PT), but I now know what’s in store for next week and in all seriousness could not sleep last night thinking about all the ramifications of it. It will be an entirely different series with an entirely different framework after the end of next Tuesday’s episode.

Why I’m Not Saying More Till You See It: As Daniel Dae Kim puts it, “Because people have waited so long for answers, and because they’re coming out, it’s probably best to be a little more tight-lipped than usual.” Wise words from a guy I adore, so I’m heeding ‘em.
That said, I would absolutely love to meet any of you who are interested in “watching” the premiere with me in the comments section below tonight from 8 to 10 pm ET (sorry, West Coasters, but you can read the exchange afterward?). Join me if you’d like, and I’ll answer the questions I can?If you promise to hold me tight when Terry O’Quinn’s big moment is revealed.
Enjoy.

TV Guide’s 13 Questions with Damon and Carlton

TVGuide.com: Is the reset going to be a theme of this season or are you playing with the audience?
Cuse: I think it wouldn’t be Lost if we weren’t playing with the audience a little bit, but by the end of the premiere, you’ll have a sense of what we’re doing. We’re still doing the same thing we’ve always done on the show, which is island storytelling and off-island storytelling. It just now starts to take on a different form in the final season. Like every season, each season is a distinct entity, so by the end of the premiere, you should have a sense of what Season 6 is shaping up to be like.

TVGuide.com: Michael Emerson said instead of storylines coming together, the threads keep spreading out. Do you feel like everything will come together at the end or will it keep spreading?

Cuse: I’m not sure I agree with Michael. He might have been toying with you, because we do feel like there’s a certain circularity to the show. In the same way that the show started, we’re going to come back around to some of the main characters from the first season of the show. To us, the most important thing is, what are these character’s destinies? What are their fates? What’s going to happen to them? Those are the questions we’re really interested in answering. Along the way, we’re going to tackle some of the mythological biggies, like what’s the smoke monster? You’ll learn more about the nature of the island. You’ll learn more about Jacob and the Man in Black. Those are the things we feel are important as opposed to what kind of research was the Dharma Initiative doing on polar bears.

TVGuide.com: Will there be more on the numbers or will that never really be answered?
Cuse: There is definitely more about the numbers in Season 6. I think it will be an individual decision as to whether you’ll walk away satisfied by the answer because there’s a fundamental conundrum where any question begets another question. It’s the Big Bang conundrum. The universe started with the Big Bang, but once you accept that you ask what came before the Big Bang. So at a certain point you can’t definitively answer a question in a way that doesn’t lead to other questions. Everyone is going to have to find their comfort level with the show.

TVGuide.com: Will the final season be no holds barred? Can anyone die?
Cuse: The mantra of the final season in a certain way is, “Anything can happen, be prepared.” We are nearing the end, so if there are any constraints that govern a series, they really go away in the final season. We always felt like Lost was at its best when it was really surprising. We did things that were unexpected. We do have a few surprises up our sleeves for this season, which we think are really exciting.

TVGuide.com: You already know who is going to die in the end?
Cuse: Yes, we have our game plan for how the season will end. Significant discisions like that have definitely been resolved by now. We’re still writing the scripts, but we, ourselves, know the fates of the characters.

TVGuide.com: What can you say of the Man in Black?
Cuse: People who are curious about the Man in Black will get more answers this season for sure. We recognize that that character is mysterious and cryptic and we promise that we will give you more details about who he is.

TVGuide.com: Is Jacob really dead?
Cuse: Is Jacob really dead? Yeah, I mean we’ve always said that when characters die on Lost they die. He was stabbed, he was dead. Of course, dead characters show up in other incarnations. We have a narrative structure of our show which allows us to have our cake and eat it too. Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean we don’t see you on the show, but was Jacob killed by Ben? The answer is yes.

TVGuide.com: Yes, and Harold Perrineau is among those who’s back despite being dead.
Cuse: Yeah, and he’s back on the show this year, so you’ll see Harold on the show and that’s really exciting for us, but he did die on the freighter.

TVGuide.com: Is Kate going to end up with Jack or Sawyer or end up alone?
Cuse: Well, we know what’s going to happen to her, but we’re not going to tip what’s happening to her. But we definitely know what the resolutions of the characters are and we know that people care a lot about the Kate, Jack, Sawyer, Juliet quadrangle and that will be something that you’ll definitely get some resolution on this season.
Lindelof: And I think it’s great that you actually present that Kate might end up alone as an option, because a lot of people say, “Is it going to be Jack or is it going to be Sawyer?” But that presupposes way too many things that they’re not fully aware of in the final season. So there may be a couple of other options that are in play that people aren’t considering yet.

There was also a Jin scene involving the same community college where Hurley’s asylum was filmed. And a scene at a nice house with Hurley and Alpert. (SpoilersLost)

Titus Welliver: Lost‘s Season-Ending Mystery Isn’t Black and White

Source: TV Guide Online

Titus Welliver probably thought he had seen it all during his run as Deadwood resident Silas Adams. But then he appeared on Lost for all of 1 minute and 45 seconds, and in short order his world — as well as that of the ABC drama — shifted forever. Who was this mysterious “man in black” taunting Jacob on the beach in the Season 5 finale prologue? What did he mean with the observation, “They come. Fight. They destroy. They corrupt. It always ends the same”? And why did this “Man No. 2″ so desperately want to find the loophole necessary to one day kill Jacob? Review our round-up of season-finale cliffhangers Welliver, who now has a recurring role on CBS’ The Good Wife (premiering Sept. 22), shared a look inside the far-from-black-and-white nature of his Lost visit.

TVGuide.com: How does it feel to be dropped into the zeitgeist that is Lost?
Titus Welliver:
It’s pretty insane. It’s pretty insane. This is a completely different thing for me. At the street level, it has been crazy. People — from all walks of life — come up and say, “Now, you possessed Locke…?” “Are you in fact Locke?” “Has the character of Locke been created from you, and this was a whole setup to crash the plane?”

TVGuide.com: The funny thing is they can only refer to you as “you,” because they didn’t give your character a name. By what name did you know him?
Welliver:
He has no name. He’s just “the man,” because they don’t want to give anything away. I know that this character has a name and I know the importance of it; that’s all that I know.

TVGuide.com: So you don’t know his actual name?
Welliver:
No — and I think they deliberately withheld that.

TVGuide.com: Were you only given the script pages for your scene?
Welliver:
No, I got a whole script. But the thing is, unless you’re watching the show weekly, you’ve no bloody idea what’s going on. It’s not a show that you can just drop into the middle of. I had watched Lost during the first season, but then life and children sort of prevent one from being able to consistently stay with something.

Fall TV grid: See what’s on and when

TVGuide.com: Did the producers give you any notes on what the dynamic should be between you and Mark Pellegrino‘s Jacob?
Welliver:
Liz Sarnoff, one of the writers on the show, is actually an old colleague from a show that we did with David Milch, Big Apple, and from Deadwood. Her explanation was that Jacob sees man as being a flawed creature, but that there is always hope, whereas my character has a much more cynical but in some ways realistic view of man. She said, “Now extrapolate from that what you will. Are they waxing philosophical? Are they gods?” What occurs to me as I watch Locke mention the loophole and pitch Jacob into the fire is, “Clearly this other man on the beach has inhabited Locke on some level” — and it never suspends your belief simply because of how intricate the mysterious nature of the show is. You never say, “Aw, c’mon.” I find it interesting that the audience completely buys into what [the writers] put in front of them.

TVGuide.com: Fans have all sorts of theories on the Jacob-Man No. 2 relationship. Some see the obvious parallels with the Bible’s Jacob and Esau, but there are also a wealth of Egyptian comparisons…
Welliver:
Yeah, the Esau thing seems to dominate the extrapolating conversations. People on the subway say, “Are you Esau?” The interactions are that random.

TVGuide.com: Do you think it’s as simple as one of these guys is good and the other evil?
Welliver:
The way that I interpreted it, on a biblical level, is that it’s a sort of Cain-and-Abel scenario. So by destroying Jacob, what does that prove — that [the man in black] can ultimately have power over the island? Do the castaways become solely his playthings? And why was it so important that he find the loophole to be able to kill Jacob? That moved me in the direction of thinking that if he needs this loophole, there’s a greater power than the two of them that they’re answering to.

TVGuide.com: Right, someone had to establish that loophole. Some giant, cosmic lawyer.
Welliver:
[Laughs] Exactly. What [the producers] said to me was, “No hand-wringing” — and I said, “Certainly not,” I didn’t want to do the Snidely Whiplash thing — “and understand that this is kind of a chess game,” hence the fact that one’s in black and one’s in white. But are they part of the chess game… or are they the players?

TVGuide.com: It seems like Jacob could have one last ace up his sleeve, as evidenced by him saying before dying, “They’re coming.” He may have put one final countermeasure in place.
Welliver:
Oh, yeah. Somebody asked me about that — “Is your character going to just take over?” — and of course I don’t have the answer. But as a viewer I think, “It can’t be that easy to get rid of Jacob.”

Michael Emerson Talks About Season 6 and Jacob

Anyways do you have any more Lost scoop? Ausiello: May’s series finale is going to be a real downer, predicts Michael Emerson. “I don’t think Lost will have a happy ending,” he confessed to us at the Saturn Awards. “It’s the end and I think we are going to start seeing more casualties. I would put money on major characters being killed. I believe it will be a sad ending to the show — or at least bittersweet. I think it will definitely be a series finale for grownups.” Emerson, meanwhile, is still trying to make sense of the season 5 finale. (Join the club!) “I killed Jacob… maybe… probably,” he hedged. “It isn’t like we haven’t seen plenty of other people be killed and somehow come back. And what does it mean if I did kill him? I Who the hell was he anyway? Obviously, Ben wanted a father. So much of our show is about bad fathers. It is one of our biggest themes. And Jacob disappointed in those final moments. And maybe Jacob made it easy for him. Maybe that was all meant to happen. Is it all ordained? Maybe. And for that matter, can Jacob even be killed? Stay tuned is my response.” Source: EW

Latest on Potential Return of Dead Losties in Season 6

The exec producer of Ian Somerhalder’s new CW series, The Vampire Diaries, is close friends with Lost exec producer Damon Lindelof. So when he’s not sucking blood in the South, Ian may reappear on the island as Boone. While apartment hunting in Atlanta, where Diaries shoots, with his new on-screen vampire brother Paul Wesley, Ian tells me, “I’ve heard a little bit about what’s happening this season on Lost, and there’s definitely an avenue they’re going down to bring back a lot of us.” Any crossover [with] Lost would “only help the success of our show…as long as it’s not screwing up production,” Ian says. So what if Boone, Shannon, Charlie and the rest of Lost’s “living dead” turn out to be vampires? “That would not be good,” says the actor, who currently lives around the corner from Maggie Grace (Shannon) in Venice Beach. “There are already enough vampires flying around the airwaves. If we can keep it at True Blood, Twilight and Vampire Diaries, the world will be better off!” Source: TV Guide

Latest from TV Guide Magazine

“What the hell’s going on with Lost? I don’t think they know. I think from week to week they go, ‘Let’s do this.’ And then someone else says, ‘No, this would be a good idea.’ I love that show, but I don’t think they know what they’re doing.” —Ellen DeGeneres

“I am flattered that Ellen is a fan of our show,” says exec producer Carlton Cuse, who promises Ellen there is a master plan, with some sweet payoffs, if she sticks through the final season. Dominic Monaghan recently had a secret breakfast meeting with producer Damon Lindelof to discuss how he might manage returning to Lost as Charlie. “We would like there to be some visitations from people we’ve loved over time,” Cuse says. Michael Emerson, who plays Ben, confirms, “The final season will resemble the first. I know there are plans for big people we have parted company with to reappear.” But one crucial component from the very first pilot episode will most likely be absent from the reunion: cocreator J.J. Abrams, who tells me he won’t be returning to Hawaii to direct the series finale. “I would selfishly love it,” he says, “but director Jack Bender has been living in Hawaii for years and doing amazing work. For me to come in and direct the finale would be cruel and unusual.”

Any word on Mark Pellegrino being on Lost next season, or is Jacob really dead? We posed that question to Michael Emerson who claims he doesn’t know the fate of Jacob, but since Ben was the one to stab him, we don’t quite believe him. “I have no idea, honestly, I wonder. I can’t wait to see that next script,” he says. The cast of Lost goes back to Hawaii in the middle of August to shoot the final season, and Michael is really looking forward to it: “It’s certainly bittersweet, but it’s sort of exciting to know that they’re not going to string it out. They are going to end that sucker in 17 episodes. I can’t wait to see how they do it.” We can’t either! Source: Kristin on E!Online

I was so happy to hear about Charlie, Shannon and Claire returning to Lost next season, and then so bummed to find out that nothing except Claire is for sure yet. What’s the current status of various dead castmembers returning to Lost? Even though Dominic Monaghan is said to be appearing on another ABC show next season, reportedly Flash Forward, we’re just paranoid enough to think it might be a double cross, and that D.M. might actually be heading back to Lost after (or in addition to) whatever else he does on the Alphabet Net. Why do we think this? Because very reliable sources now tell us that there is “mutual interest” (between the Lost PTB and Dominic Monaghan) in bringing about a season-six return visit by Charlie Pace. Look for official developments in the next week or two. Source: E!Online

Claire-lost_l

Question: I miss Claire on Lost. Emilie de Ravin is such a great actress. Will she be back for all of next season?
Ausiello:
Yes! After sitting out last season, de Ravin will return as a full-time series regular for Lost‘s sixth and final season, Team Darlton confirms. “Damon and I are very excited to bring Claire back to the show,” says Carlton Cuse, “and even more excited for people to experience just how she will return.” And even more exciting that that? Experiencing Doc Jensen’s theory on how she’ll return. Take it away, DJ:

“Any scenario that brings Claire back to Lost must address the mysterious circumstances of her disappearance at the end of season 4, in which many of us were led to believe that she was as dead — or rather, undead — as the Ghost Christian that’s been haunting The Island since season 1. So here’s one thought: Juliet changed time in the season finale by detonating Jughead, and season 6 will tell the story of the new timeline, one in which Claire is alive. Another thought: In light of the revelation that John Locke was actually a supernatural impostor for half of season 5, perhaps in season 6, we’ll get a storyline in which Claire just emerges out of the jungle, with no memory of what happened to her — just like season 1 — and we and the castaways will be left to wonder: Is this the real Claire or another impostor infiltrating them a la Locke? Heck, maybe that’s going to be the major idea of next season: Who’s really alive and who’s really (un)dead? It really will be the fabled zombie season of Lost!”  Source: The Ausiello Files

Spoiler alert: ‘Lost’ mystery solved!

Source: The Ausiello Files

How very sneaky of you, ABC. Dominic Monaghan appearing in ABC’s new promo campaign has nothing whatsoever to do with Charlie being resurrected on Lost next season. But that’s exactly what the network wants folks to think. Why? Because they’re trying to keep under wraps the real reason he was playing table soccer with Patrick Dempsey, Courteney Cox, and Ed O’Neill in that clip. This is the part where I warn you of an incoming spoiler and give you one last chance to bail before continuing on… Okay, here it goes: The real reason Monaghan is featured in that cheeky spot is because he’s actually joining the cast of another hour-long ABC drama series as a full-time series regular. And the net’s brass want it to be a surprise. A big surprise. But don’t let that stop you from posting your theories in the comments section. Which ABC show do you think Monaghan is joining full time? And what character do you think he’ll be playing? Speculate away!

‘Lost’ scoop: Juliet mystery (sort of) solved

And now for some news that should surprise no one: ABC is expected to announce tomorrow that it has picked up a reboot of the camptastic ’80s thriller V and that Lost heroine Elizabeth Mitchell is a full-time castmember. Translation: She will not be returning to Lost as a series regular. However, before you go declaring Juliet DOA from last week’s detonated hydrogen bomb, I should point out that this piece of scoop comes with a big but attached: Mitchell’s Lost days are not done. Multiple sources confirm that the actress is expected to appear in an unspecified number of episodes next season, so it’s entirely possible Juliet survived Jughead and her absence will be explained in another way.

Lost Season 5 Finale Recap “The Incident”

Josh Holloway, LostHere we go, the season 5 finale of Lost.  Sawyer, Juliet and Kate are in the sub, Sayid, Jack, Ellie and Richard are with the hydrogen bomb, Miles, Hurley and Jin are in DHARMA-Ville and John Locke is going over the river and through the woods to Jacob’s cabin…to kill Jacob.

Before the episode started I had two theories: either this entire series is Jack’s dream while he’s on a space shuttle to become the first man to walk on Mars or Mr. Spock is controlling everything from his office in an alternate universe World Trade Center.  Congratulations to anyone who gets both references.

Oh ye Gods!  So some dude weaves on a loom and goes outside to the beach on the Island to catch and heat up some fish.  He sees a ship coming and another man walks up.  They talk about the end and progress and how the ship found the Island.

The second man wants to kill the first one, but for some reason he can’t.  The first man is Jacob!  And as the other guy leaves, we see the giant four-toed statue of Anubis standing tall right next to him.  This episode will be insane.

And the confusing flashbacks continue as a little Kate and her friend steal from a convenience store.  They get caught and the shopkeeper threatens to call the cops, but a mystery man says he’ll pay for what she stole.  The man is…Jacob!  Yeah, this is going to be one of those kinds of episodes.  Jacob makes Young Kate promise never to steal again.

Back to the sub, an older Kate wants to go back to the Island to stop Jack from detonating a hydrogen bomb.  Sawyer doesn’t really give a crap.  I love new Sawyer.

Sayid reads through Faraday’s journal and learns they only need to take the Plutonium core of the bomb to detonate.  Richard is worried about Ellie because she’s pregnant, but she isn’t scared because she knows her son will be safe.  Until he returns to the Island and he kills her, of course.

Dr. Chang is still scared about drilling into the pocket of energy, but Radzinsky is adamant.  Was I asleep this whole time, or did Radzinsky suddenly get a whole lot more power than he used to have?

30 Years Later: Sun wants to know who Jacob is, and Ben tells her that he’s in charge of the Island.  Richard is still confused about how John Locke came back to life, but Locke suspects it’s the same way Richard never ages – Jacob did it.

Ilana and Bram row up to the main Island with Lapidus,  Ilana thinks their pilot might be a candidate for their group, whatever that is.  Lapidus wants to know what’s in the box, and when they open it, all he can say is: “Terrific” in a classically ironic tone.

Lost Episode Recap: “The Variable”

Dan is a man with a plan. After weeks of questioning what exactly Daniel Faraday knows or doesn’t know, and whether or not we should trust him, Wednesday’s episode of Lost, the show’s 100th, gives us a peek into that complicated brainiac’s melon, and what we find out is scary to contemplate. It seems that Daniel wants to prevent the folks at the Swan station from drilling, because it will release a dangerous amount of electromagnetic energy, killing many and launching a series of events that will eventually cause the crash of Oceanic 815. To counter this, Faraday thinks the best course of action is to detonate a hydrogen bomb. Come again, Daniel… while I pick up the pieces of what was once my staggeringly capable brain, read on!

It is a little bit of a game-changer.” Source: The Ausiello Files

Question: Any spoilers about Lost‘s season finale? Please! Ausiello: Funny, we posed that exact question to Damon Lindelof Jorge Garcia at the Hollywood premiere of Star Trek earlier this week. “People will find out why [Hurley] got on the plane and how he came to get that guitar case in his hands,” he said. “I’ve been wondering about that, too. I remember at one point asking a question about it and getting a, ‘We don’t know yet.’ I had to ask once, ‘How heavy is it? Is it just a guitar? Is it something else? How heavy is it supposed to be?’ Sometimes I get an empty case to lug around in a scene and sometimes it has a guitar in it, but we don’t actually know what’s in it because that has not been [revealed] yet. It could be a case full of food or money or guns or papers or anything. So you see me get the case by the finale, but I don’t know that we will find out what’s in it. It was hard for me to play because at first I did not understand why Hurley would have ever changed his mind about going back to the island, and I’m sure fans are thinking the same thing. So it will be nice to be able to give them that information.” Source: The Ausiello Files

The May 13 episode called “The Incident” will be a two-hour event on ABC before the show wraps up. Many hints have been released in the past few months regarding this finale including a death that reportedly is from a major character. While one (or some) are leaving, many will also return, from the death. Michael Emerson, who plays Ben, had confirmed “We see some people from the past. It keeps us speculating why certain people seem to be holding on and revisiting the living in some interesting ways.” One of these ‘ghosts’ is most probably Sayid’s wife Nadia who was tragically murdered. Additionally, sightings of the younger versions of Kate, Sawyer, and Juliet will also be in the finale along with the final revelation of the Goliath four-toed statue. “She’s Taweret, the goddess of childbirth,” Michael mentioned previously.

Lost Finale Preview: Michael Emerson Talks of Ben’s Sacrifice, Jack’s Plan and Meeting Jacob

Source: TV Guide Online

Michael Emerson, Lost

The pieces are being moved into place as ABC’s Lost tees up its two-hour season finale (Wednesday, starting at 9 pm/ET). While Jack and Sayid pal around with Jughead and submariner Sawyer and his ladies somehow manage an about-face, Ben has been left to join Locke on a journey to meet — and perhaps kill — the mysterious and mighty Jacob. Michael Emerson, who previously has described the season-ender as “explosive,” shared a cryptic look at what exactly it beholds.

TVGuide.com: We have two hours left in the season. Is it going to take Locke, Ben and Richard 119 minutes to get to Jacob?
Michael Emerson:
It’s going to take a while. I mean, we’ve been making our way to Jacob for a long, long time. I think we can last a little bit longer.

TVGuide.com: Is it safe to say we will meet him in this finale?
Emerson:
Jacob is certainly a character in the final two episodes. [An ABC spokesperson interjects to say, "We can neither confirm nor deny that Jacob will be in the season finale."] There seems to be a suggestion that we’re moving in that direction, but what Jacob might be or how he might be revealed, if he ever is, is one of the juicy surprises of future Lost work.

TVGuide.com: Might Ben and Richard try to stage a coup to overthrow Locke?
Emerson:
Ben and Richard have always seemed to me to have a somewhat fraught and edgy relationship. I don’t think Ben is in a position right now to make aggressive alliances with anybody. Ben is doing well at this point to put one foot in front of the other.

TVGuide.com: But what about “My enemy’s enemy is my friend”?
Emerson:
Well, there’s something to be said for that, and that is a philosophy that Ben has put to good use in the past. But Ben seems to be in as low a place as I have ever seen him. He seems to be shaken and no longer the general that he used to be. He is in fact no longer possibly the chess player that he used to be.

TVGuide.com: To add in yet another metaphor, are you saying he has run out of aces up his sleeve?
Emerson:
That may be the case. But he isn’t completely out of cards yet. No matter how whipped he is, he continues to be alert to the possibilities of every situation.

TVGuide.com: I was surprised — and I am curious if you were, too — to learn that Jacob can be killed. Or at least Locke believes he can.
Emerson:
That was such an interesting statement for John Locke to make. Based on everything I ever knew about Jacob, it seems a sort of unlikely thing to say.

TVGuide.com: Right, this is Jacob we’re talking about!
Emerson:
Yeah — Jacob seems to be somebody that has gotten along fine for a long, long time, and seems to be impervious to the frailties of the flesh.

TVGuide.com: Ben is asked to make a sacrifice in the season finale. What can you tease about that?
Emerson:
Ben has sacrificed his leadership and authority [to Locke], but he’s also going to be asked to serve someone else’s interests, not his own.

TVGuide.com: In your mind, if Jack were to detonate Jughead and thus keep 815 from crashing, what then? What moment immediately follows that instant? Do we cut to a plane full of mild-mannered people?
Emerson:
I think it cannot be that simple, if that were a thing that happened. We’re wrestling with these ideas of what can be changed with time travel and what cannot be changed. I don’t thing a thing lived can be unlived. In one of the recent episodes, someone alluded to the idea that whether it’s past, present or future, it is your life in the order it happens to you. I don’t think anything done can be undone. This is an issue the writers and we the actors are wrestling with, and I don’t have a good answer. Jack seems to be saying that he can erase the events of the last five seasons … but I think that’s unlikely.

TVGuide.com: Will you be back next season?
Emerson:
Well, nothing that happens in the finale suggested to me that Ben’s work was done. But like everyone else, he is vulnerable to accidents … or injury. I’m hopeful that I will be among the actors who appear in Episode 601, but nothing is written in stone at Lost.

Well, nothing except some ancient hieroglyphics.

Jack’s decision to put a plan in action in order to set things right on the island is met with some strong resistance by those close to him, and Locke assigns Ben a difficult task.

Lost (May 13, ABC)
Charles Widmore told John Locke that a war would take place on the island, and that if John didn’t return, the wrong side was going to win. We’re still a little unclear on who — and when — the sides will be (Hostiles vs. Dharma; Oceanic 6 vs. creepy Ajira survivors; Smokey vs. everyone), but it’s clear that tensions are mounting all over, and will probably culminate in at least one shocking season-ending death. Other intriguing tidbits: The finale will introduce us to Jacob, the island’s spiritual leader, and we’ll see a wedding that takes place off-island. Thump! Source: TV Guide Online

After you see the finale, you’ll understand why season five of Lost has not handed you Sawyer and Kate on a plate. (Watch With Kristin)

Sayid’s wife Nadia is back in the finale. We’ll also be meeting young Kate, young Tom (Kate’s friend from Iowa), young Juliet, young Rachel (Juliet’s sister) and young Sawyer, and several of those sightings happen because a pivotal figure in the Island mythology (Jacob) wants to check in on the castaways in their youth. (Watch With Kristin)

Jack’s plan to “un-crash” Oceanic Flight 815 is not foolproof, sadly. But it doesn’t lead to the deaths of everyone involved — just one person. And that death, though heartbreaking on the scale of Charlie’s end, will one day seem necessary because it sets up a raft of amazing future storylines and brings closure to some other long-running stories. (Watch With Kristin)

Among the crucial questions you’ll get answers to in the season finale, are “How did Hurley get that guitar case that he brought on the Ajira flight to Guam?” But also, “How did Hurley get out of jail?” Also, we’ll see Vincent the dog again — but while the fate of Bernard and Rose will be alluded to, we may not actually see Bernard and Rose in person. We’ll also see the face of the four-toed statue, which Michael Emerson believes is Tawaret, goddess of childbirth. And the season finale’s title, “The Incident,” is a clue to the direction the show is moving in. It’ll end with several major characters in jeopardy, until the final season begins in 2010. (TV Guide)

Are there any spoilers for the two-part season ender for Lost? We just can’t wait! Thanks. Sayid’s wife Nadia is back in the finale. Yes, technically she’s his tragically murdered wife, but still: whee! We’ll also be meeting young Kate, young Tom (Mr. Friendly Kate’s friend from Iowa), young Juliet, young Rachel (Juliet’s sister) and young Sawyer, and several of those sightings happen because a pivotal figure in the Island mythology wants to check in on our heroes in their youth, à la Richard Alpert’s test visit (“Which of these are yours?”) to John Locke.

Supposedly Daniel Faraday is the son of Charles Widmore and Eloise Hawking. And after Faraday returns to the island via submarine, he goes to talk to Dr. Pierre Chang/Marvin Candle and tells him the truth about the island and Chang’s son, Miles. Daniel tries to convince Chang to evacuate the island. Daniel then ventures to the Others’ camp and tries to talk to his mother, Eloise. But before he gets the chance, she shoots him and he dies. She doesn’t realize until afterwards that he was her son. She finds out from Jack and Kate what Daniel was planning to do, and she swears to carry it through with help from Richard. (ODI)

Hey, guys, any word yet on what the code name for the Lost finale’s final scene will be? Yes. It’s not as boring as “The Bagel,” but not as laugh-out-loud silly as “Frozen Donkey Wheel.” This year’s name was chosen from fan submissions, and the winning name is…”The Fork in the Outlet,” according to ABC reps. The actual episode, though, is titled “The Incident.” Sounds like the Losties are going to be messing with the electromagnetic power of the Island, to return to the future or to unleash the metal-shavings monster. (Remember what Michael Emerson told us about Smokey? “I think it all has something to do with metallic dust. I think the smoke monster is connected to that ring of powder that surrounds Jacob’s cabin. They’ve established that there are supermagnetic forces at work on the Island, so what better medium for those forces to work through than through fine filings of metal.”) Source: Kristin on E!Online

Ausiello: We will come to learn that the dude who may or may not be playing Jacob bore witness to pivotal events in the pre-island lives of Locke, Sayid, and Sawyer. Speaking of Lost, I wanna say a few words about Evangeline Lilly’s performance in tonight’s episode: Wow. (Okay, one word.)

One of them sees Daniel requesting the evacuation of women and children off the island. The first clips shows Sawyer telling Juliet to confide in him but she doubts him. The second clips sees Daniel frantically coming into Jack’s room to ask him about how Jack gets back to the island. Jack in fact, if according to Daniel’s theory, was not supposed to return there in 1977. Third one sees Daniel telling Dr. Chang to evacuate people immediately out of the island, a move which will be in contrary to the history of the island.

Locke falls eight stories out of the window and lands behind him. While people cry out for help and to call 911, Pellegrino (Young Jacob?!) calmly puts a bookmark in his book and casually walks over to Locke’s body in the grass and kneels down next to him. I wasn’t sure who the guy was on the bench but after seeing his picture on the site, it was DEFINITELY Pellegrino.

Will There Be a Big Season-Ending Lost Wedding?

Josh Holloway, Evangeline Lilly, Elizabeth Mitchell, Matthew Fox ABC/Florian Schneider

File this under shamelessly unconfirmed rumors too juicy not to share…

A couple of Lost characters are getting married.

According to a Hawaii-based source, Lost is currently seeking extras to play guests at a wedding on Monday. And if you’re unaware, this is season-finale shooting time, give or take a few production days, so this wedding (if it happens) could very well be a key plot point, not just some throwaway background moment. Lost weddings are few and far between—we’ve seen Jack and Sarah’s (Julie Bowen) nuptials and the day Kate got hitched to Kevin Callis (Nathan Fillion)—so we know that every such scene has major import for the series, right?

Who could be getting married? Is it Dharma lovers Juliet and Jim? Could Jack and Kate be unbreaking their engagement? Vote in our Lost Wedding Poll below and then post your theories in the comments!

New ‘Lost’ Season 5 Finale Spoiler

Source: BuddyTV

Warning: The following story regards a fairly major spoiler for the Lost season finale. It’s sizable pieces of a puzzle rather than the answer to everything. But if you think having the pieces would ruin your ability to look at the whole with fresh eyes you may prefer not to know. Everyone has a Lost theory, but a few people’s guesses are a little more educated than others. Entertainment Weekly’s master of spoilers, Michael Ausiello, posted a real chin-scratcher about Lost today. The meaning of his tip is certainly murky, which only makes the news more interesting as Ausiello raises more new questions than he answers.

Ausiello heard from an ABC insider that Lost is shooting a wedding today that will factor into the two hour finale on May 13. There’s no word on who is getting married except that the ceremony won’t be held on the island. There is one suggestive detail. The casting agents are calling for Asian-American actors to play extras in the scene. Since Jin and Sun are already married there are a few possibilities. The scene could be a flashback to Jin and Sun’s wedding, which on the surface would sound sentimental and cute but not exactly earth shattering. Or, according to one wild rumor, the wedding could occur during an extreme flash forward in which Aaron, now grown up, marries Jin and Sun’s daughter.

Some scenes from late in season four and early in season five could be read as foreshadowing an Aaron and Ji Yeon union. Sun has previously commented that she would love it if Ji Yeon and Aaron became friends, and she later promised just such a friendship to Ji Yeon. A distant flash forward would provide answers to some fairly major questions. Are the parents of the bride and groom present? One can just imagine that some stunning clues would be worked into the scene about the long term futures of the central characters.

A flashback to Jin and Sun’s marriage would be a bigger spoiler for what it implies than for what it directly states. What course of events on the island would necessitate flashing back to the wedding? Will Jin and Sun’s second chance together be short lived, with shots of their unhappy ending being interspersed with memories of their happy reunion? Or is there another interpretation?

I, for one, don’t want to know what happens until I see the episode. But half-spoilers like Ausiello’s give me interesting directions to think in and actually make me more curious to see the episode rather than less. One has to wonder how many of Ausiello’s spoilers are deliberately leaked to him in the hopes fans will have exactly that reaction.

Who do you think gets married? What would it mean if Ji Yeon and Aaron got married? And why would we flash back to Jin and Sun’s wedding? Comment below and call your wedding theory now so you can brag later when you turn out to be right.

A Dose of ‘Lost': Possible Wedding and Major Character Exit

‘Lost’ is reportedly casting extras for a wedding scene while Elizabeth Mitchell aka Juliet is cast in another pilot.

Two news coming from “” may as well be the key clue to a major plot for the end of the season. First thing first, E! reports that a wedding may occur towards the end of the fifth season. The publication imported the information from a source in Hawaii where the shooting is taking place.

The show, allegedly is casting extras to be wedding guests, and if traced based on the shooting schedule, then this would be for the episode that airs in mid-year, aka the season finale. No confirming news yet about this, but extras are required to show up on Monday, March 23.

On a separate news, EW is hearing from moles at ABC and Warner Bros that who is Juliet in the series, has been cast for a new pilot “V”. This leads to speculation that her character could be written out. However, her role in “V” is still marked as “guest star”.

Lost Episode Recap: “The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham”

Namaste! Wednesday’s episode of Lost fills in the time gap between when Locke leaves the island with Christian Shephard’s help via the frozen donkey wheel to the time when “Jeremy Bentham” dies. We see Locke’s unsuccessful attempts to convince Sayid, Kate, Hurley and Jack to return to the island. Plus, we have new Others! Like Ben and Juliet before them, the sinister, clearheaded Caesar and Ilana have a mission, it seems, but they’re unlikely to be forthcoming about it any time soon, what with all the pointed questioning and firearms.

Lost Episode Recap: “316”

HTML clipboardHTML clipboard Well, we now know how the Oceanic 6 got back to the island, but because this is Lost and not Two and a Half Men, what appears to be the burning question is instantly supplanted by a more complicated one: Why did they go back? While Jack and Sun were already on board with Ben’s plan to return, all of a sudden Kate, Sayid and Hurley were all queuing up at the Ajira Airways gate, and we have no idea why.

  • [A scene set in Russia] was for Naveen Andrews, who stalked about dressed all in black (including a leather jacket). Most of the action happened behind closed doors, but the last scene depicted Sayid coming out of the building, holding something inside his jacket, and walking away. Bags of ice were spread across the sidewalk to depict snow. Interestingly, the same thing was done one block east on this same street for another Sayid scene (leaving a restaurant in Berlin). [...] After sundown, they turned up at Bishop Museum, where the show had recreated yet another Russian locale .  According to my friend Jeff, a museum employee, both Naveen Andrews and Michael Emerson were on hand. He said they were in Red Square, and that fake snow was sprayed on the side of Hawaiian Hall and on cars parked along the lane. Source: The Transmission

  • Two new people will accompany the O6 back to the Island. We will see another crash. We will see Ms. Hawking inside the Lamppost Station. Sawyer has to to lie. The lie hinges on everyone’s safety, especially his own. Someone we’ve seen will be shown to be Ethan’s mother. [...] Dharma wants to kill Sayid and capture him. A teenage Ben helps him escape. Ben is shot and I think Jin witnessed this. Juliet tries to help Ben but gets Sawyer and Kate to help her carry Ben to Richard and the Others. Richard Alpert was there and so were Others with guns. Locke is seen shooting a scene where he is wearing an outfit very similar to the suit he was buried in. Source: Lost Spoilers

The Rousseau storyline would last for a while. When asked if Jin will learn French, Daniel Dae Kim said slyly, “Who’s to say he doesn’t already know it?” We get the feeling he may already speak it. (Watch With Kristin)

Jin and Sun reunite. And it may be sooner than you think. You’ll be surprised if and when you see it. (Watch With Kristin)

Lance Reddick (now on Fringe) says he’s coming back to Lost in the Feb. 25 episode. (Watch With Kristin)

Rebecca Mader talked about Charlotte and Daniel: “They must have a history. Because it’s like they just got to this island and all of a sudden they appear to have—he apparently loves her, he’s in love with her, which is huge.” Hopefully we’ll find out about it soon since someone is kicking the bucket this week, and it very well could be Charlotte. (Watch With Kristin)

Rebecca Mader said she’s safe for now, but the emphasis was a bit too strong on the “for now”. She may have been released from the show at some point to shoot a movie with George Clooney. (Watch With Kristin)

Malcolm Davide Kelley (Walt) recently filmed an episode of Lost, scheduled to air February 25. Just don’t expect Michael’s son to factor into Ben’s mission to return select former castaways to the isle. As Michael Emerson tells us, “The writers would say that Walt … left the island at a time that wasn’t key. It’s not just about the six who left; it’s about when and how they left.” (TV Guide)

316 – Airing February 18
Jack dives from the top of the waterfall and he swims over to Hurley, who’s sitting on the side playing guitar… There’s also a floating guitar case. Then he swims over to a maybe unconscious Kate.

Jin and Swayer see the first half of the Oceanic 6. The reaction is emotional to the return. Jack talks to Marvin Candle. Juliet and Sawyer are living together. (Lost Spoilers)

The show is casting a role that sounds a lot like a pre-island Ben. The 10-year-old child prodigy is an extraordinarily gifted science student and musician who “is deeply depressed and simply wants to make his parents proud and get their love.” Interested actors must have brown hair, brown eyes and strong piano skills. (Michael Ausiello)

Mrs. Hawking is related to someone we already know. (Watch With Kristin)

Mrs Hawking gives something to Jack that MUST go back with Locke’s body along with a special item that comes in pairs that is related to Jack’s grandfather. (Lost Spoiler)

Lost Episode Recap: “The Little Prince”

Namaste! Wednesday’s episode of Lost, titled “The Little Prince,” proved to be a doozy in terms of at least one character’s presumed fate!

Lost Episode Recap: “Jughead”

Am I the only one who was disappointed to find out that there would be no Lost-Archie Comics crossover on Wednesday’s episode? It’s a shame: I had a ton of “jalopy” and “Midge” puns at the ready. So who or what is “Jughead” then? By the end of the hour, we’ve found out, but it’s perhaps the least fulfilling of the many revelations of this fast-paced episode, which contained far fewer “flashes” than last week’s episode. Desmond begins his quest to find Daniel Faraday’s mother — whatever her name is — and in the process learns more about her time-hopping physicist son, and the company he keeps. Read on to get the whole confusing story…read more

  • 12/12 – Summary of shooting reports sent to The Transmission: A new Dharma Logo was spotted on the Othersvlle set, the logo with a wrench in the center! Othersville is freshly painted and looks all nice and new. A Dharma “Processing Center” is a part of the set, which includes several props including pictures of new recruits. The latest date spotted was 1976! A yellow lab, possibly Vincent, was spotted. Regarding the VW filming on the cliff, Hurley was spotted in the driver seat while Sawyer had a Dharma jumpsuit on, but Jack was in the shirt in tie still. Kate and Lost producers Damon and Carlton were on set. At another set at Kawela Bay, some large props were spotted including a structure that seems like a 20 ft tall Teepee with out the covering. Plus, as part of their most recent podcast at The Transmission, we get a confirmation that we will see Young Charlotte and learn about her birthplace afterall perhaps via a Charlotte flashback or because the island has traveled back in time.

  • 12/12 – While driving up to Mokuleia today we stumbled onto the Lost set. They were filming a scene with Kate (Evangeline Lilly) and Hurley (Jorge Garcia) and his VW camper. They were pretty friendly though and let us pass through the set so we could walk all the way over to the NE-most point. Source: Blomdahl.org
  • 12/04 – Rousseau and Walt could be back, but Michael will stay dead. Flashbacks and flash-forwards will be part of the mix, and be on the lookout for that four-toed statue. Oh, and don’t expect that Desmond-Penny bliss to continue forever. Source: Sci Fi Wire
  • 12/04 – Visiting fan Grant from Edmonton and his wife were able to catch them hard at work yesterday at Camp Erdman – otherwise known as Othersville – on the North Shore. [...] There were six main characters present. In addition to Kate, they saw Jack, Hurley, Sayid, Sawyer and Jin. Those last two names are particularly interesting to see. Sayid appeared to be wearing civilian clothes. Kate appeared to be wearing a dark blue jumpsuit. The rest – Jack, Hurley, Sawyer and Jin – were all wearing what appeared to be the DHARMA Intiative’s familiar tan jumpsuits. There were also more than a dozen other actors, including a few children in DHARMA tan jumpsuits, skirts and shorts. At least four new looking DHARMA Volkswagen vans, one Jeep, and a few blue bicycles scattered among the cabins. The left edge of a banner that began with the word “NEW.” [...] “One thing for sure, though,” he added. “They weren’t wearing those jumpsuits to keep warm.” Source: The Transmission
  • 11/20 – One theory making the rounds is that Amy, who’ll be introduced during the show’s fifth season, will be revealed to be someone from the early days of the Dharma Initiative. That would seem to confirm buzz that Ben transported the island and all of its inhabitants back to the ’70s in last May’s finale. At least Aylesworth can say with near certainty that Amy’s love life will be complicated. “There’s definitely some conflict with the suitors,” she teases. Wait a second — suitors , as in plural? How literal will the show’s depiction of the ’70s be? “Obviously, we want that to be a surprise,” says executive producer Carlton Cuse. “Let’s just say her role will be emotional.” Source: The Ausiello Files
  • 11/06 – Sayid will probably be the one to get a new love interest this season. Source: The Ausiello Files
  • 11/04 – ABC’s Lost spent Saturday in Kakaako near downtown Honolulu to film a three-car Locke  oriented crash scene at South and Pohukaina streets which was closed to traffic and pedestrians most of the morning and afternoon. Lost Special Effects coordinator Archie Ahuna coordinated the crash and rigged the vehicles that included a Mercury Marquis, SUV, and and old Toyota Camry. [...] Two special effects scenes were shot, including the crash and later a near roll over. [...] In the scenes the cars had Oregon license plates. Source: Tim Ryan’s Reel Hawaii
  • 11/02 – Lost returned to downtown Honolulu this morning to film a New York street scene. The intersection of Bethel St. and Merchant St. was converted into the Upper West Side in Manhattan, with a tell-tale subway entrance (“Columbus & 67th St. Station”), New York cabs, some news racks, and an antique rugs shop (“established 1902?). The centerpiece, though, was Honolulu’s upscale preschool, The Cole Academy. Through the power of quality set signage, its ornate entrance became the door to Fieldcroft School. Students, perhaps in their early teens, stood around with their backpacks. Nearby, a limousine waits. The scene involves John Locke, Matthew Abbadon, Ben Linus. and Walt Lloyd. I missed Ben, but was able to catch Walt and Locke – still in a wheelchair – talking across the street from the school as taxi cabs and pedestrians streamed past. Eventually, some other kids near the entrance call Walt over, and Abbadon helps Locke get into the back of a black Lincoln Town Car. Locke has a blue cast on his leg, but is able to hobble over to the vehicle. [...] Lost returned to the campus of Windward Community College in Kaneohe today to film yet another scene at the “Santa Rosa Mental Institute,” where our dear Hurley has been a tenant. From veteran spotter “Grappler” (who previously reported from the Windward side) comes this account of the day’s filming: Hurley is relaxing on the hospital grounds, sitting on a bench and painting, when Locke arrives. Locke is in a wheelchair with a cast on his right leg, rolling himself up to Hurley’s side. They have a conversation. Soon enough, Hurley jumps up. He calls out to a female orderly, perhaps his attendant, named “Susie.” He asks her, “Am I talking to a guy in a wheelchair right now?” She affirms that Locke is really there. Hurley sits back down, and they talk some more, in even more hushed tones. Locke eventually gestures over his shoulder at someone. It’s unclear whether this person is standing nearby, or is sitting in a mysterious black car with California plates parked in the distance. But from the context (and the stand-in on the set), chances are Locke is pointing at Abbadon. At this, Hurley again jumps up, even more distressed. “What? Don’t you know? He’s evil!” He then jams his fingers in his ears, yelling, “I’m not hearing this! This is not happening!” He calls for Susie. “I’m ready to go back now!” Susie takes Hurley by the arm back into the hospital, leaving Locke behind. Source: The Transmission

  • 10/27 – “My character starts explaining to Locke the mysteries of the island,” says Nestor [Carbonell], who denies his character is actually the all-powerful Jacob. “There’s a phenomenal twist.” Mysteries from Charlotte ‘s past will shed further light on the island’s history. “It appears I’ve come back to the island to look for my birthplace,” says Rebecca [Mader].  Last season, viewers saw her in a Tunisian desert studying the remains of a polar bear. [Carlton] Cuse says viewers will soon learn why she’s trying to find the island’s bears – and confirms the Tunisian skeleton belonged to one of them. “We’ve seen several bear cages,” [Damon] Lindelof says. “But none of the polar bears are accounted for.”  Source: TV Guide
  • What I’m hearing is that the reason Jack, Kate, Sayid, Sun and Hurley need to reunite is because the Oceanic Six need to fan out to a group of Dharma stations. [...] These stations are not on the Island, but in other locations, and these off-Island stations are believed to be the ticket to getting back to the Island. Source: Kristin on E!Online
  • A reader over at BuddyTV, Moosky19, has just sent in this filming report. The scene witnessed took place at a Catholic school, though Moosky19 believes that they might have been using it as a church because they added an extra Jesus on the cross prop on the exterior. The scene had four main characters: Jack, Ben, Sun and Desmond. Yes, Desmond. Ben, Sun and Jack were using [a] Canton Rainier van. In the scene Moosky19 witnessed, Sun and Ben talk in a very serious manner once they exit the van. In the middle of the conversation, Ben pulls something out of his “man purse” and gives it to Sun. Whatever it was, it was small, Moosky19 thinking that maybe it was Jin’s ring. Next, Desmond comes into the scene, and then they all run into the building. Desmond is wearing a wedding band. Did he and Penny get married? Also, Sun has a gun on her the whole time. Moosky19 also noted that everyone appeared to be pretty buddy-buddy with Ben the whole time, or at least they were working with him without animosity. Source: Lost Spoilers
  • 10/02 – Lost rolled up to Hawaii Medical Center West, a.k.a. St. Francis, in Kalihi (just up the street from Hoffs Drawler and Simon’s Butcher Shop) today. Parked in front, Jack’s Ford Bronco, a blue cargo van with “Canton-Rainier Carpet Cleaning” emblazoned on the side, and a Los Angeles Paramedics ambulance. Matthew Fox, Naveen Andrews, and Michael Emerson are on the scene. Jack is on the phone as action is called. He learns that someone, or something, is somewhere else, and they need to get there “right now.” Jack jumps into his truck, but Sayid and Ben hang back a moment to have an intense conversation. At one point, to adjust for a dip in the grass, Naveen Andrews stands on some sandbags to meet Michael Emerson eye to eye. Eventually, Sayid takes the wheel of the blue van, and Ben climbs into the passenger seat. They drive off. Source: The Transmission

No details yet as to which episode he will be appearing in. [... In an upcoming episode,] Desmond and Penny have been flying under the radar for awhile and they’re having a kid. They move around every few months and in this episode they are in a city named Mati. Ben is hot on their trail. Ben tortures someone from the Widmore Group.

  • This morning, they turned up in the heart of downtown Honolulu, taking over Alakea Street near South King St. – an immensely busy intersection. On the scene were Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly, and their respective cars (the classic Ford Bronco and the stylish silver Volvo). Jack gets out of his truck and crosses the street to Kate, sitting in her car. He kneels at her window, and they have a long conversation. Suddenly, Jack rises to his feet, and after a few more words, darts around the front of her car and jumps in the passenger seat. The pair then speed away. Later in the day they moved everything up the street, and up 16 floors, inside 1100 Alakea Plaza. No clue what was filmed behind closed doors, but at least one tenant thinks they saw Michael Emerson. Yesterday, Lost was running two units at disparate location shoots. First, they took over the Pacific Marina Inn off Lagoon Drive, right in the flight path of Honolulu International Airport. It was a rainy morning, but they brought their rain trucks anyway, allowing them to conjure a downpour on cue. It was another Jack and Kate scene, but mum’s the word on what happens at this motel. or where the motel’s located. Meanwhile, on Queen Street, they filmed at the Honolulu Brewing and Malting Company building. This distinctive, historic red brick building previously hosted Lost as the loft Charlie shared with his brother Liam, but I’m pretty sure the structure was playing another time and place. A green screen was set up on the sidewalk fronting the building, which means the scene could’ve been anywhere. My guess? London. Henry Ian Cusick was on the set. [...] Lost converted the public pool at Kaneohe District Park into a dark, angry ocean. In a canoe, paddling frantically, were Sawyer, Juliet, Miles, Daniel, Charlotte, and at the head of the crew, Locke. Manufactured rain poured down, and crewmembers made waves and rocked the boat, large overhead lights creating lightning, large orange fans creating wind. Dialogue was hard to make out over the roaring noise of all the equipment, but Sawyer seemed to yell for them to go back, but someone sees or hears something and they begin paddling in earnest towards it, trying to avoid capsizing and shielding their eyes from the flashes.

  • When the series returns for its penultimate season in early 2009, “the overriding question will be where did the island go and when did the island go,” executive producer Carlton Cuse says. We will finally see the story of Danielle Rousseau’s early years on the island, which found her research team slaughtered and her daughter kidnapped. Off the island, an unlikely alliance will develop. “We’re working on a story for the beginning of the season where Sayid, now an assassin working for Ben, and Hurley buddy up, which is really amusing,” says Cuse.

  • The Lost production crew returned to Kaimuki today, taking over the Chevron gas station at the corner of 11th and Harding avenues. It was renamed “Smith Stop and Run,” and the price of regular unleaded was set to a tantalizing $3.22 a gallon. On the scene were Naveen Andrews and Jorge Garcia: Sayid looking badass in black, and Hurley in non-threatening pastel yellow. The pair flee the scene – Sayid looking tired or injured in the passenger seat – just as a silver Mercedes pulls in. It’s Evangeline Lilly, stylish as ever in a maroon, floral print top. And behind Kate, a very young blond boy in a car seat. [.] We went out and saw them filming a scene with Elizabeth Mitchell and Josh Holloway. We also saw Vincent the dog! The scene had Sawyer, shirtless and in jeans, talking to Juliette. We also think they may have been shooting with “Rose” as well, as when we were walking by, we heard someone ask if Rose was ready and miked up. Source: The Transmission
  • Saïd Taghmaoui, a French thesp most recently seen in the Don Cheadle thriller Traitor, [will join the show]. He’ll play Caesar, a mystery man who…um…well, that’s all we got. But the producers say the actor’s skill set fits the part. “He has an innate intelligence, intensity, and danger we really responded to,” says [Damon] Lindelof, who declined to specify whether Caesar is good or bad. However, [Carlton] Cuse teases that the character will be playing “an important part of the setup for the final act of the show in season 6.” He also confirms that [Zuleikha] Robinson’s Ilana is associated with Caesar, and likens her to Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight. “There was something very unsettling about the way the Joker kept telling different stories about his background — something very similar to what we had planned for Ilana,” he says. Look for a delayed introduction for the duo, beginning with an intriguing setup followed by a gradual increase in screen time that won’t detract from established faves, much like how season 4’s newbies, the Freighter Folk (Jeremy Davies, Rebecca Mader, Ken Leung, Jeff Fahey), were worked into the mix. (The producers say we’ll be seeing more of the FF next year, too – even Fahey, last seen escaping the Island with the Oceanic 6). Source: The Ausiello Files
  • Zuleikha Robinson has been tapped to play the pivotal role of Ilana. [...] Robinson’s Lost deal calls for her to start off as a recurring player with an option to become a series regular in season 6 (a.k.a. the farewell season). As I first reported last month, Ilana is described as a European female who possesses great intelligence but who’s also dangerous as all get out. She’s alluring and apparently used to getting her own way. Source: The Ausiello Files
  • Caesar: 35-45. He is dangerous, physical and extremely intelligent with a dark past. He is a mysterious man whose intentions are unclear. He can charm us or kill us. Recurring guest star with possible series option for season 6. Ilanna: 25-35. She is a European woman of great intelligence, powerful and charming yet incredibly dangerous, too. She is alluring and very used to getting her own way. Her past is deeply mysterious and dark. Recurring guest star with possible series option for season 6. Source: DocArzt’s Lost Blog
  • The Lost producers are looking for two ships, both need to be seaworthy. The main one they wanted was a big black ominous looking ship, but the ship company didn’t have anything that was even remotely similar to what they described. However, they booked another ship and it’s going to be a chase ship which goes after the big black one. The chase ship is the oldest ship in the marina and it looks like it’s from the 1500’s. Do you know why they would want boats that looked to be several hundred years old? They want to film out in the Pacific off the California coast in early September. Source: Lost Spoilers
  • Sources confirm that Team Darlton is looking to introduce two new characters this season – and they’re both as mysterious as they are lethal. They’re also coming in as recurring players with an option to become series regulars in season 6. First up is Caesar, a dangerous, physical and extremely intelligent male between the ages of 35 and 45. Although his intentions are unclear, this much is certain: He’s as skillful at charming people as he is at killing them. He also has a dark past, but, c’mon, that much was a given. The other newbie is Ilanna, a European female in her late 20s to early 30s who possesses great intelligence, but who’s also dangerous as all get out. She’s alluring and apparently used to getting her own way. Source: The Ausiello Files

We’ll finally get Rousseau’s back-story, but Darlton cautioned that it would be wrong to call it a “flashback” episode. Source: The Ausiello Files
  • You will see Claire again. Not right away, but what happened with her will be explained. [...] We will see Rousseau’s story, to use the word “flashback” might be disingenious. [...] Vincent’s okay and will appear in season five. [...] Kate will see Sawyer again. [... The nonspeaking "beachies" who were ferried to the blown-up boat are] dead. Faraday is probably gonna be okay. [...] This year, when season five starts, you’re not going to know when and where you are.

  • As for teases on the new season, as usual the executive producers are tight lipped, but they do reveal this season will be about the Oceanic 6 getting back to the island. “The people that are off the island, the island seems to be drawing them back and Ben makes it clear they need to go back to the island,” says [Carlton] Cuse. “So hopefully that’s a lot of what you’ll see of in Season 5 — the journey how those six return to the island.” Source: iFMagazine

To the question of whether the DeGroots, the hirsute couple who founded the Dharma Initiative, are still alive, Cuse and Lindelof paused a bit and then pressed for more specificity on the time frame of the question. As of where the time line of “Lost” will be when the series returns on April 24, Darlton would only say: “One of them is.” Lindelof let it be known that in a recent episode when one of the castaways asked Ben if he knew what the island’s smoke monster really was and Ben responded that he didn’t know — big lie. “Ben was lying about the smoke monster,” Lindelof said.

There’s really one significant missing piece to Libby’s story. We saw in the season finale last year that she met with Desmond, she gave him his boat, and we know that her husband died — and then we know that subsequent to that, she spent some time in a mental institution, the same one as Hurley. The question the audience wants answered is, How did she get from A to B — from Desmond to the mental institution? We know the answer to that question, but the only way to tell that story is through another character’s flashback, and that character would have to be another character on the show who is not among the beach dwellers. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Lost Spoilers: Premiere Countdown Scoop!

This week we have: Lost, Lost and… Lost! (SPOILERS FOLLOW!)

Source: TV Squad

  • The island moved back in time. Most reports say in the 70s, due to on-set reports where we see Dharma at its beginning: Othersville is in full bloom, there is a processing center to welcome new recruits, etc.
  • Jack and Ben try to reunite the Oceanic 6 in order to return to the island. They will make it to the island but will have to return in separate groups because of some complications. It looks like they will try to blend in with the fresh Dharma folks, as some people spotted Jack and Hurley wearing Dharma tan jumpsuits.
  • When the O6 return to the island, they will be reunited with at least some of the people who were left behind, as set reports claim to have seen Jack, Hurley, Sayid, Kate, Sawyer and Jin in scenes together.
  • Claire is not set to appear this season, but will be back next season.
  • Jin’s fate will be discovered in episode 5.04.
  • Some of the guest stars returning this season: Rose, Bernard, Christian, Richard, Ethan, Marvin Candle, Penny, Charles Widmore, Ana Lucia, Hurley’s parents, Matthew Abbadon, Miss Hawking and Walt.
  • There will be scenes in Tunisia, Russia, and England.
  • Hurley will tell the truth about the island to his mother.
  • Jack’s grandfather will be introduced in the season’s seventh episode.
  • We will see a younger version of Charlotte, and her birthplace will be confirmed.
  • It will be revealed that Miss Hawking, the all-knowing old woman from one of Desmond’s flashbacks, shares a very surprising connection with a major character.
  • Richard will spill some rather surprising beans about the island’s mysteries to Locke.
  • We will see young Ben again, and a young Sayid will turn up in a flashback.
  • Ben will help Jack get clean. In the premiere, Ben will also imply to Jack that once he returns to the island, he may never be able to get back to the real world.
  • It looks like we may see the Black Rock at sea, as over the summer, producers were looking for two seaworthy ships, one having to be big and black.
  • There may be sparks between Faraday and Charlotte.
  • There will be “another” plane crash.
  • Read somewhere that three people are going to die in the premiere? Those dying will not be people we label as main characters.

  • First scene we saw had Sawyer, Bernard, Rose, and Juliet. They appeared to be having a conversation in the jungle. Second scene had Charlotte and Miles, going back to camp. We watched for about 90 minutes. According to one of the crew, it was for Episode 5.01. Source: The Transmission
  • Foreman: 40s to 50s, any ethnicity. A blue-collar construction worker. He’s worked hard to get where he is and provide for his family.

Completely believes in the work she is doing but sometimes questions the decisions of those in charge. Co-star, recurring. Dan: 40s, any ethnicity.

  • Hurley and Sayid drive into the apartment complex parking lot in a late-model blue SUV. (It and the other cars have California plates.) They exit, Sayid looking sharp in a black shirt and dark khaki pants, Hurley wearing a thick, long, grey bathrobe over a blue T-shirt. Hurley’s also holding a big burger and paper cup. They make their way stealthily up the stairs, and walk the length of the building, past several apartments. They work their way up to the top floor, Hurley eating the whole way. Finally they reach the apartment they’re looking for. They confer for a moment. Sayid seems to reach for the top of the door, looking for a key, perhaps, when something startles them. Sayid pushes Hurley aside, and draws his gun, pointing it at the door. It opens, and there’s a struggle inside. The next moment, Sayid throws a man over the railing to the asphalt four stories below. There’s a second man inside. Shots ring out. Hurley emerges from the apartment, gun in his hand, and looks over the railing in disbelief. Looks like Sayid is introducing Hurley to his new career.

  • Michelle Rodriguez [...] is returning to the show this season, multiple sources confirm. [...] Rodriguez is back for one episode, most likely this season’s second. [...] The fact that Cheech Marin is also on the guest list for eppy 2 suggests that it’s most likely a Hurley-centric outing. And after his encounter with Charlie’s ghost last season, it’s certainly feasible that Hurley would have an imaginary run-in with Ana Lucia. Source: The Ausiello Files
  • Nigel: British, in his late teens. Despite being rough around the edges, mature well beyond his age and extremely smart. Must have English accent. Nice co-star. Will appear in episodes 502 and 503. Darlene: Early 20s, any ethnicity. A bored clerk who hates her sucky job and looks for any burst of excitement to get through the shift.

Episode 5.03: Jughead
Airdate: January 28 at 9 p.m.

  • When action was called, Henry Ian Cusick raced into the heart of the bustling marketplace. Desmond was out of breath, sweaty, wearing an unbuttoned maroon paisley shirt rolled up to his elbows, light khaki pants, and blue canvas shoes. He was clutching a piece of paper, reading it, then scanning the crowd frantically. He called out a name, over and over, stopping and saying it to perplexed faces. He was looking for someone, but losing hope. Try as I might, I couldn’t make out the first name. Althea? Theone? Was it a man, a woman, a child? From context, I’d guess it was a male name. But the last name was clear as day: Salonga. Source: The Transmission
  • In Kaimuki, they were filming at the corner of 9th and Waialae Avenue . It is an accident scene where Hurley (stunt double was driving) speeds down the street and knocks over some boxes on the sidewalk before driving off. He’s being chased by someone you’ll never guess… Ana-Lucia in a police car. She was in the car the whole time, so I couldn’t 100% confirm it was her but I’m pretty sure. I just don’t want to speculate and be wrong. She had HUGE glasses on. I’m guessing flashback or hallucination. I should add that the stunt guy was wearing hospital type garb, so that’s why I think it is in the present. Source: Lost Spoilers

Airdate: February 4, 2009

  • A call sheet for episode 5.04, “The Little Prince,” offers us some information about the episode. Here are a few tidbits from the call sheet: Charlotte will have a bloody nose and be passed out for a while. Faraday is by her side. It seems Miles and Juliet also have nosebleeds. The camp has been raided. Locke wants to return to the Orchid station. Sayid is attacked. Later, he reluctantly joins Ben to extract Hurley. Jack resigns from his job at the hospital.

We won’t see him at all for the first three episodes, and it’s not until episodes four and five that we’ll really understand what happened to him when the freighter exploded.

Episode 5.06: The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham
Airdate: February 18, 2009

  • Lost returned to Oahu Cemetery this morning, perhaps a fitting location on the brink of Halloween. The historic graveyard previously appeared in the Season 2 episode “Lockdown,” as the not-quite-final resting place of Anthony Cooper. It seemed, at first, a peaceful scene, with Matthew Abbadon bringing a wheelchair-bound John Locke to a modest grave site for an intense conversation. But things turned quickly when it came time to leave. Locke, in the back seat of a blue four-door sedan, waited as Abbadon loaded his wheelchair into the trunk. But no sooner had Abbadon closed the lid, when shots rang out. And Abbadon is hit. Source: The Transmission

Airdate: March 18, 2009

  • 12/12 – [A scene set in Russia] was for Naveen Andrews, who stalked about dressed all in black (including a leather jacket). Most of the action happened behind closed doors, but the last scene depicted Sayid coming out of the building, holding something inside his jacket, and walking away. Bags of ice were spread across the sidewalk to depict snow. Interestingly, the same thing was done one block east on this same street for another Sayid scene (leaving a restaurant in Berlin). [...] After sundown, they turned up at Bishop Museum, where the show had recreated yet another Russian locale .  According to my friend Jeff, a museum employee, both Naveen Andrews and Michael Emerson were on hand. He said they were in Red Square, and that fake snow was sprayed on the side of Hawaiian Hall and on cars parked along the lane. Source: The Transmission
