Some Snippets From Carlton

Thanks to DarkUFO reader evin_d for the following snippets from Carlton Cuse at last nights airing of Tonights Episode.

A few other things Carlton stated last night:

1: What appears to be Faraday’s voice in the old Dharma video (with the chaos and Chang in the 70’s sweats) is now deemed a continuity error.

2. Kate saving Ben’s life was course correction (please note he said this while in discussion of something else)

3. we should be hearing from Bernard and Rose soon (he sounded as if it was in this week episode, but wasn’t)

4. He now understands the rivalry b/w OSU and Michigan- located Ann Arbor where the DI began due to the response from students.
5. Funny moment- A student stated there was a glitch in the S in the opening LOST Banner and wants CC to fix it (CC agreed to look at it). As the show started and the banner flashed, the audience roared.

Nice guy- signed autographs, gave hugs, took pics, and had some sweet Nike Air Max’s…

The Official Lost Audio Podcast – Season Finale

Thanks to DocArzts for the heads up on a new podcast from Team Darlton.

Thanks to Salaam for the summary.

– There is mythological advancement in the finale
– The finale has a season 1 feel to it along with season 6
– We will get more information about John Locke and the kill Jacob scenario
– Follow the leader was the first part of the finale
– They joke that jacob is a 60ft tall flaming man
– They hint that sawyer, kate and juliet may get back to the island in a special way.. carlton jokes ‘the magic box?’
– The compass is in a time loop, they refer to it as what came first, the chicken or the egg?
– The video from comic con with Faraday talking to Chang was non-canon, only the show is canon, plus they could not get to that storyline in the actual show
– Faraday was meant to stay on the island instead of going to ann arbor, in this time he was going to try convince chang about the future, instead they sent him to ann arbor because of show constraints etc
– Hurley is a good guy, so is Kate and Lapidus and Sayid maybe a bad guy
– 60ft Flaming Jacob is a good guy
– Damon says that by the end of the incident and the premier of season 6 we will have enough information to theorise well how the whole series will end, as we will get a substantial piece of information in the incident, but then carlton says at the end of season 6 is when we will have enough information.

Thanks to Lisa for the heads up.

This season of “Lost” has been the story of how five of the Oceanic 6 – all but young Aaron – returned to the island, which has jumped back in time 30 years.

When four of those five – Jack (Matthew Fox), Kate (Evangeline Lilly), Hurley (Jorge Garcia) and Sayid (Naveen Andrews) — finally are reunited with Sawyer (Josh Holloway), Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell), Jin (Daniel Dae Kim), Miles (Ken Leung) and the now dead Daniel Faraday (Jeremy Davies) – back on the island, they find themselves 30 years in the past.

Heading into the two-hour season finale on Wednesday, May 13, Sun (Yunjin Kim) is in the present with Ben (Michael Emerson) and Locke (Terry O’Quinn), who are battling over who will lead the island. “In the grand mapping out of things, one would assume Sun has a larger role to play,” says Lindelof.

Jack, Kate, Hurley and Sayid are all in 1977. Sawyer, Juliet, Sun’s husband, Jin, and Miles have made a home for themselves there among The Dharma Initiative, a group that’s set up camp to study the island and construct research facilities. Sawyer, Jin and Miles are all part of Dharma’s security team, but that cover has just been blown.

Dharma has enemies on the island, The Hostiles, so the Initiative is a bit jumpy. The arrival of Jack, Kate, Hurley and Sayid upsets the balance; exposed as outsiders, Sawyer and Juliet are forced to arm themselves and fight their way out.

Meanwhile, Jack and Kate must decide their next course of action.

“There are two mendasar approaches to the show. There’s the Jack approach, which posits that there’s no real explanation for what’s going on. Or there’s the Locke approach, which assumes that everything on the show is happening for a very specific reason. We are very strong supporters of the Locke approach,” says Lindelof.

The reason some folks have traveled back to 1977 was explained by memory-challenged physicist Daniel Faraday (Jeremy Davies). Faraday thinks people might be the variables in time-travel equations. That means it might be possible to diffuse the electromagnetic energy that brought down Oceanic 815 by exploding a hydrogen bomb (named “Jughead”) that just happens to be on the island, allowing the past – and thus the future — to be changed. Faraday dies before he has a chance to test that theory out, now it’s up to Jack, Kate, Sawyer and the rest to decide what to do – try to change the future or let it ride.

“Not everybody is interested in Faraday’s mission,” says Lindelof. “It’s a very divisive issue and one that the audience is feeling too. It would be a big cheat, erasing the last five years of the show, and making it so that we never came to this island in the first place.”

Jack, however, has already expressed interest in Faraday’s mission, while Kate is clear she wants to stick with the life she has. Regardless of what Jack and crew decide, next season will find the show’s core characters all back on the island resolving why they landed on the island in the first place.

In the finale, more will be revealed about such mysterious symbols as the four-toed statue and the Egyptian hieroglyphics, says Lindelof.

The show has been a wild and often confusing ride, but Lindelof and Executive Producer Carlton Cuse say they know exactly where it’s all headed.

“That was a conversation that started back between seasons one and two of the show,” says Lindelof. “We are following the plan pretty much to the letter, although there is room for improvisation.” Lindelof says next season – which will be the Emmy- and Peabody Award-winning series’ last – will bring things full circle.

“Season six will feel a lot like season one,” says Lindelof. “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 [Ken Leung] is left of the Freighter Folk and only Juliet [Elizabeth Mitchell] is left of The Others. We’re getting down to the end now.”

“The metaphor we like to use is that this is a road trip. We know we intend to end up in New York City, but maybe we’ll pick up a hitchhiker or stop at a kafetaria and get drunk along the way,” says Cuse.

“And then linger there for six episodes,” jokes Lindelof.
