- The premiere presents a logistical challenge for the cast and crew because for the first time the episode takes place in THREE separate time-lines.
- There have been spurts of crew activity on the island, even though filming doesn’t begin until August 18th.
- The cast is reportedly still “spread out.” No signs, apparently, that there have been any gatherings for readings or anything of that nature.
- So far there have been NO casting calls for the premiere, at least no public ones. The most recent LOST related casting call was for Dan Bronson for the ARG.
- According to Josh Holloway in the new TV Guide, Sawyer will – much to the delight of the ladies – be shirtless during the first few episodes of LOST season five.
The three time-lines sort of, for this episode at least, blows apart the notion that episodes will focus on one time-line with the other being the flashes. Ala, this is an island episode with the flash sequences being off the island Oceanic 6. The question is, would they have ALL episodes jump back and forth between the O6 and the relocated island folk?
