hic05aThat’s too bad, because it would take a genius to figure out what’s going on in Lost! Production has begun in Hawaii, are you privy to what’s happening in the season premiere?
I’ve read scripts for up to Episode 3. It sort of picks up, as always, where it left off, but then it jumps all over the place. We get very excited to pick up the scripts and read them and they’re still as confusing and baffling as ever. [Laughs] We’re still going, “What the hell is going on now?”

Is it a different atmosphere on set now that it’s the last season?
Most of the [cast] are making plans to move back to the mainland. I think there are only a couple people contemplating staying in Hawaii. I’m thinking about staying in Hawaii. My children are in school and to pull them out now would be tricky. We really love life here. One of the best things about Lost is I got to live in Hawaii.

With Sonya Walger, who plays Penny, on FlashForward, does that mean there will be even less of Desmond and Penny this season?
I really don’t know what’s going to happen with Penny. And, to be honest, I don’t know what’s going to happen with Desmond either. Are we going to see less of him than last season? I hope not, because we didn’t see much of him and there are a lot of things I’d like to know about him. I think Desmond’s character has become more of a peripheral character. I think now we are zooming to the end and there are a lot of questions that need to be answered…

Do you have a favorite Desmond and Penny scene?
I guess their first meeting—that was kind of fun when she and Desmond are packing up the crates in the monastery. I like that scene.

What Lost mystery do you want solved?
What is the Island and why the Island—that’s the essence of the show. And then there are a thousand little strings we probably won’t get answers to, but I guess that’s life and you can make up your own stuff, so the conversations will go on and on and on.

What’s next, after Lost is done filming?
Nothing at all, so I better start looking.

From TVFrenzy:

  • Paul Rand

    I think he’s totally right. With so many unanswered questions and plot threads left hanging going into this season, there’s no way they are going to be able to tie them all up. We are all going to be disappointed, some more so than others. The only people who are going to be satisfied are those who where just “in it for the ride” rather than answering the mysteries. And those of us who care about the mysteries, well we’ll be left speculating about them and posting theories about them until the end of time.

  • I disagree, as long as they answer and tie up the major loose ends I’ll be happy. I know they won’t be able to get to anything, and when they don’t, at least we’ll actually be able to speculate and theorize about something after the show ends instead of being handed all of the answers.

  • neoloki

    Asinine comment above (paul). I am far from being on for just the ride. If they were to answer every mystery it would totally devoid Lost of any life whatsoever. The greatest thing about Lost is it challenges the viewer to THINK. Yeah, that thing rolling around on your shoulders. Use it and Lost just may hold up through the years to repeat viewing.

    Thank FU***** god Damon and Carlton won’t pander to viewers that need everything explained.

  • Major FX

    I need to know what Desmond did to get locked in that nice lady’s prison. Something dishonorable, for sure, but it too must have something to do with the story. He must get back his honor.

  • Are there any news about “Desmonds” law suit??

  • A. The name LOST has always worked on so many levels, and the more we learn about the final season, the more the show is living up to its awesome name: the character’s lives, their hearts, their very souls…LOST. And, pulling every trick in the book, and then some, the writers have left the viewers quite LOST as well. This took some getting used to, but the show has made me much more content to enjoy what we’re given, and THINK about it, than it would if it obsessively wrapped up every mind-bending mystery.

    B. Thank God Desmond is coming back in any capacity! I was so worried that he had molested that lady and the show was going to absolutely distance itself from him. Especially with Sonya Walger being so busy.

  • Mike

    I don’t believe Cusic. Desmond is special – and will have a role in the final season’s outcome. perhaps if timelines split – he will have the capacity to coexist with full knowledge of what is going on in both. I still think he will see Claire get on a helicopter, perhaps after the war.

    • Mike

      Oh, and by role I mean a big freaking role – not a fetching food from the beach type of role.
