Here are the latest hints from Ausiello:
About the “Spectacular Kiss” rumor floating around:
More like a “spectacular kiss” — Damon Lindelof’s words, not mine. In the new issue of Lost magazine,
DL teased, “Romance is always blooming on and off the island. And I
hereby promise you one of the most spectacular kisses you’ve ever seen
on the show in this year’s finale.” Naturally, I pressed DL’s partner
in crime, Carlton Cuse, for further details on the earth-shattering
smooch, to which he replied, “I can disclose no more details other than
to say it’s one of my favorite moments of the whole series so far. And
contrary to some speculation, it is a male/female kiss.” OK, so it’s not Mr. Friendly and his little Rent Boy. Who does that leave? Oh, right: Pretty much every other couple on the frakkin’ show! Damn you, Team Darlton!
About Claire’s safety:
The only thing I know for sure is that Claire is in significant danger in this season’s Episode 9.
