Henry Ian Cusick previews ‘The Constant’ with USA TODAY.
Here are some revelations:
Q: So is Desmond’s episode tonight a flash-forward or flashback?
A: It’s, uh … to be honest, it’s neither. It’s more in line with those time-travel flashes before his eyes. A lot of people either love the time-travel element or hate it.
Q: The last time we saw Desmond, he and Sayid were being taken by helicopter to the freighter, but it had been taking an unusually long time to arrive. What’s up with that?
A: There’s a reason for that, and you’ll find that out in this episode. And you’ll find out why it’s so difficult to get to the island.
Q: With whom do we see Desmond interact?
A: You will see (Desmond’s love) Penny and her father, Charles Widmore. You will also see Desmond back in the military. And you’ll also meet a whole new bunch of guys on the freighter, who have been a whole lot of fun to work with.
Q: We are learning one by one who make up the Oceanic Six, so far revealed to be Jack, Hurley, Sayid, Kate and maybe (the show’s not confirming) baby Aaron. Since Desmond was never on Flight 815, can we assume he does not turn out to be one of the six?
A: That’s what all of us were trying to figure out when we were receiving the scripts. I think it suddenly dawned on us that you had to be an original passenger on the plane that went down to be an Oceanic Six.
Q: So tell us. Who is Ben’s man on the freighter?
A: You find out, but not for a few episodes.
