Lost - Season Six
Comic Con: What We Learned About Losts Final Season

http://www.slashfilm.com/2009/07/25/...-final-season/

Quote:

Lost has always had a massive presence At Comic Con, but the panels have always been more of performance pieces to celebrate the shows fandom than deeply revelatory insights into what we can expect from each progressive season. While this was also true of this years panel, there were at least a few interesting hints and teases that squeezed through the cracks.

Its already been revealed that Season 6 of Lost is very much intended to bring things back to the shows first season, but its never really been clear what exactly that means. When asked to elaborate on this, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse were cryptic as always, explaining that theyre closing the loop, and that we can expect to see many characters we havent seen since Season 1. Does this mean that Jacks (or rather, Faradays) plan from the end of Season 5 worked? It sounds likely, at least to some degree.

Lindelof and Cuse also showed us a series of faux ads and video clips, that while seemingly being played for humor, contained several peculiar inconsistencies of past events on the show that may indicate the timeline has been altered. The first clip was an ad for Oceanic Airlines, with a voiceover that proclaimed the airline had gone 30 years with a perfect safety record. Does this mean the plane didnt crash? It also claimed that the company was founded in 1979, which is around the time that many of the losties found themselves transported back to. Could this be a clue as well?

The second clip was a Mr. Clucks commercial, featuring Hurley detailing his recent trip to Australia as a way to introduce a new outback menu item. Does this mean he arrived safely in LA instead of crashing on the island? The third (and most confusing) clip featured Kate on Americas Most Wanted, with the host explaining that her plan to blow up the house with her stepfather inside backfired, and she instead killed a plumber named Ryan Milner by mistake. Id hypothesize what this means for the show, but that would suggest I have even the slightest idea. Even if Faradays plan worked, that should only affect the characters lives following the flight from Sydney to LA. unless of course the prevention of the hatchs development somehow connects to Kates life in other ways outside of the flight, which seems unlikely.

If weve learned anything from Lost though, its that unlikely does not mean impossible. Maybe things arent as black and white as Did the plan work or not? According to Damon and Carlton, the final season is a complete change of pace from what weve seen in previous seasons. The time travel season is over, the flashforward season is over. Season 6 is something different.

They also confirmed that we would be seeing more of Faraday and Juliette, but didnt say whether or not it would be in flashback form. The Dharma Initiative, meanwhile, will play a much less significant part this time around. It wont be completely absent though, with the question of where the food drop from Season 2 came from being just one of the many open-ended mysteries that will be expanded upon in the final season.

We will also learn more about Richard Alperts backstory. He has a flashback in Season 6 that was described as being very involved. Apparently, we can expect to see a lot more of him.

These little tidbints were about the extent of the potential show reveals, but given that this is the last year Lost will have a central presence at Comic Con, it should be mentioned that Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have done a wonderful job of essentially making the panel a show in itself. It could really be called an interactive play. At one point, Jorge Garcia (Hurley) appeared during the Q&A as one of the audience participants to ask some pointed questions about where the show was headed. As the conversation grew more heated (and in turn, more comical), Michael Emmerson (Ben) stepped up beside Jorge to complain that only one question per person was allowed. Funny stuff.

Later on, the creators played a retrospective with all the characters that have died on the show, ending with a lengthy sequence of Charlies emotional demise. As soon as the lights went up, Dominic Monaghan was ready and waiting on stage, and the crowd went wild. With that, the panel was over. Nothing was said. No questions were answered. But if the hints that we had been picking up on during the rest of the panel are any indication, this may just mean one of Losts best characters will be back in action for the final season. We can only hope.

this will do your head in.

if faradays plan worked
then they never made it to the island
which means they were never on the island to go back in time to destroy the hatch which would have still been built, because them crashing on the island didnt effect the fact taht dharma was there before them.
which means the plane would have crashed.
so imo, the plane STILL crashes.
so faradays theory could have fucked up shit royally.

no, from the time they blow up the hatch time resets for them and they are back at the airport... the hatch is gone in 1977, they are "transported" back to 2004


technically in your theory, they're all dead.

JRod, please stay on topic but at the same time, please post all of your comments in white or grey and add spoiler tags, so people have to really decide if they want to read anything you write.

Spoiler:
Why must you always degrade every thread you write in?

Touche, douche.
I am truly a man of the people.
You put up your theory, which is drivel and others poked holes at it.

Continue to discuss Lost, but steer clear of subjecting genuine fans to your inner thoughts.

probably because no one who's ever had sex gives a fuck about comics, and since kids these days fuck by the time theyre 10, there's not much of a market left.

I can't wait for the last season. I've been catching up and am up to the last few episodes of season 3 atm.. Must say I've picked up on a few minor details that I missed last time. Such as the boat that Desmond got was from Libby Can't believe I didn't realise it was her last time. The boat was even called Elizabeth ffs!!

Also noticed that there is a picture of the monk and Faraday's Mum on the monk's desk during the scene where Desmond is leaving the monastery. Yes, its nothing exciting but meh

Am appreciating Ben a little more this time around. Hating Kate, Michael and Walt a FUCKLOAD more. Hating Locke just as much. And loving Hurley even more!

Yarrr, it's a painful wait for the final eps, but I'm so so glad they brought the show back into focus over the last couple of seasons.

Love Lost.

Wait wait, someone needs to answer a question for me! No one answered it in the other thread

In Season 1 when Jack finds his Dad's coffin and opens it, why is his body not in there? Seriously, I don't know if this is a stupid question, but I thought he was bringing his Dad back to bury him!?

What did I miss?

i'm contemplating the concept of, when this season is done, watching them all from where i stopped watching (beginning of season two was when i stopped being able to stomach it) and see how the ending plays out.

who knows, the show is really hard to pick lately lol.

seriously, who'd have thought there would be two lockes, dead and alive....
