Spoilers That We’ve Yet To See

Seeing as we’re not going to be getting many new spoilers for a while, I though it would be interesting to take a look back at some of the past spoilers that we’ve yet to see occur on the show. If I’ve missed any, please let me know in the comments.

Which ones interest you the most?

1) Back in Season 2 Damon/Carlton said “The story of the wrecked research vessel, it will be coming at some point but we can’t guarantee it’ll be in Season 3”
2) Damon Lindelof wrote : “Libby’s got this mysterious backstory, of which we’ve only given you the tip of the iceberg. We know she’s spent some time in the mental institution with Hurley, and the idea of killing her before she had an opportunity to explain how she got there… we have a master plan for how we’re going to tell that story, but it’s all posthumous. You’ll start to learn Libby’s moves through flashbacks over the course of the next season”
3) “Viewers will learn why Libby was in the asylum, and why the island has healing powers”
4) Ausiello reported “Eko might be back and it might not necessarily be a flashback episode”
5) In an Official Podcast – “There will be a Rousseau flashback eventually. In it, it will talk about Montand and his arm”
6) In an Official Podcast – “They will be revisiting the psychic’s predictions for Claire in the future as well as Walt’s abilities. The Others’ obsession with children and pregnancy goes beyond the inability to successfully bear children on the island. The Other’s definitely have an interest in children with special abilities. That’s why they took Walt. There are two factions of The Others and are in no relation to the hatches/stations. They will be getting back to the statue before the show ends.”
7) Damon and Carlton : “They revealed that the smoke monster will not be explained until the end of the series. “
8) On the Season 3 DVD Commentary : “Horace Goodspeed and Olivia are important to the DHARMA story, and we can expect to see more of them in the future. Speaking of volcanoes, there is one on the island. Damon says it will be of “seismic importance” (pun very much intended.) Annie is an extremely important part of the island’s backstory, and it is a planned chapter to come. Annie is more important than the Goodspeeds or the volcano. We have not seen Ben’s motivation for his role in the purge, but we will.”
9) From Kristin : “The four-toed statue “will be back on the show,” says Damon [Lindelof]. “People will learn who built it and why it has four toes.””
10) From an Interview with Variety “We will find out more back story as to why the late Libby was in the same mental hospital with Hurley, prior to the plane crash, and presumably after she gave her boat to Desmond for the race. [We will] at some point catch up with Emma and Zack, the two kids from the tail section group of survivors who were kidnapped by the Others in season 2’s “The Other 48 Days.” To the question of whether we’ll ever see Katey Sagal’s Helen character (Locke’s former flame) again, Darlton indicated that they hoped so. To the question of whether the DeGroots, the hirsute couple who founded the Dharma Initiative, are still alive, Cuse and Lindelof paused a bit and then pressed for more specificity on the time frame of the question. As of where the time line of “Lost” will be when the series returns on April 24, Darlton would only say: “One of them is.” Lindelof let it be known that in a recent episode when one of the castaways asked Ben if he knew what the island’s smoke monster really was and Ben responded that he didn’t know — big lie. “Ben was lying about the smoke monster,” Lindelof said.”

Carlton Cuse Interview From China Tv/Film Forum

LOST writer Carlton Cuse, along with Ugly Betty writer were a part of a TV and Film Forum in China to discuss their shows and answer some questions about the industry.

Here is a little summary of the key moments from Cuse including some of the spoilers he revealed for Season 5. There is also a tidbit about OGR at Comic-Con.

Thanks to EJ for the details and the heads up about the videos.

1) Jack v Locke (Science v. Faith) – One of the mendasar themes of show. In Season 5 Jack will become more a Man of Faith and Locke will become more a Man of Science. Locke believes his destiny is tied to this island. This will be a story line that we will explore in the upcoming seasons.

2) We will learn what happened to Locke and the others. Also, now what is Locke’s destiny since he is in “charge” of the island? He has committed his destiny to this island and thinks that it will lead him to enlightenment. We will eventually see if he is right or not.

3) Locke’s story is not over. There is a famous guy named Jesus Christ that was resurrected.

4) We already know what Bandar Ceme our path is and people make mistakes in theories, because there is no simple answer and they do not have enough information

5) Sawyer is his favorite: Handsome, charming and dangerous, everything he would want to be.

6) He gives a shout out to Skaters and Jaters and then mentions that we call them Darlton. Kate will end up with one of the two eventually.

7) New LOST interactive game start at Comic-Con, register to become a member of Dharma Initiative. Depending on how you do on the test you will be a Physicist, Chemist, or even a Workman.

8) Production starts in August and Season 5 will air from January to May 2009.

9) Talks a about Piracy, online downloading, some things about writing and more.

10) Does being a producer affect your story writing? No, we write first with out being a producer and then put on producers “hat”. Explains this is the reason why we got an extra hour for Season 4 finale. Do not want to censor themselves as producers.

11) Discusses picketing during the writers strike and why it happened.

NOTE: LOST informasi is spread over both clips and some information for Ugly Betty mixed in.

Snippet From The Abc Live Press Tour

Thanks to ackermaniv for the following.

“Cuse hints that “the journey about how those six return to the island” will be a major thrust of Season 5. Adds Lindelof: “You have to break your characters up to create conflict… but you can’t play that too long because the audience will get frustrated…. And we have that intensely in mind as we proceed.””

Cuse teases we’ll see more of Daniel Dae Kim “in some form” this season despite Jin’s apparent death.

More Details From Lost Producers At Tca Press Tour

LOST producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, confirmed once again that part of the focus for Season 5 will be on the O6 trying to get back to the island and how the island is “drawing them back.”

They also used an analogy calling Season 5 The Two Towers (part 2) of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Basically a season that will setup Season 6.

Here are the details:

Speaking at ABC’s TCA press tour today, LOST executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse explained how giving an end date for the series last year has truly reinvigorated the writing staff and streamlined how they’re going to get to the end.

“I think it completely changed our storytelling approach,” says Cuse.

Last year’s writer’s strike also gave LOST the ability to air the finished episodes and return to the show after the strike and utilize fan and friend feedback in the writing and completion of the remaining episodes of the season.

“We got feedback from audience and we were able to course correct,” says Lindelof who notes this year they won’t have that benefit, since the series will air in January, and they’ll be done writing shortly after that. “We’re done by writing the show at end of February, so there’s not an opportunity to get any feedback, which quite frankly scares the sh*t out of us.”

Most importantly, Cuse notes it’s a “tricky year for us,” since Season 5 is the linking mechanism to the selesai season the following year.

“This is year is the ‘TWO TOWERS year,’” explains Cuse in his reference the middle chapter of THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy that set everything into motion for the selesai chapter. “This is the year that links us to the past and the present. We knew what we wanted to do for a long time. The challenge for us is how to make this engaging and exciting, where everybody is really excited about the selesai season of LOST.”

As for teases on the new season, as usual the executive producers are tight lipped, but they do reveal this season will be about the Oceanic 6 getting back to the island.

“The people that are off the island, the island seems to be drawing them back and Ben [Michael Emerson] makes it clear they need to go back to the island,” says Cuse. “So hopefully that’s a lot of what you’ll see of in Season 5 — the journey how those six return to the island.”

And for Lindelof, he notes “the worst thing we can do on the show is be boring,” and he prides himself on the fact that people are still talking about LOST after last year’s reinvigorated season and that the writers themselves are still engaged with the show’s twists and turns.

“Season 5 is very exciting for us,” says Lindelof. “At 86 hours into the sow, we’re going into Season 5 and the fact people are asking us, ‘what is the show going to be next year, how are you going to tell stories next year?’ It has been exciting.”

More Deaths Coming

Thanks to Josh for the heads up on a little snippet from the recent TCA conference.

Damon and Carlton also were asked about diversity issues, with an implied reference to Harold Perrineau’s speculation about how race might have played a role Michael’s death, and Damon said, “The show has to be an equal-opportunity murderer…We’ve killed a lot of white people. And I can almost guarantee we will be killing more white people this season.”

Latest From Kristin

Thanks to Josh for the heads up.

Wendy in Singapore: Kristin, thank you for all the Comic-Con reporting. Do you have any other Lost stuff? Especially about Kate seeing Sawyer again?
Actually, I just heard from a reliable source what the new nonflash story structure is supposed to be for season five, and here’s what I can tell you:

1. What my source told me seems to jibe perfectly with everything we’ve heard straight from the mouths of Damon and Carlton at TCA and Comic-Con
2. It could be incredibly confusing
3. Think about the Jin and Sun episode from last season.

In particular, this new story structure (which we’ll discuss more as it gets closer to the new season) seems to ease my biggest fear about season five: separated characters and character groups. So before the secret gets out and everyone starts bitching about the confusing part, I’d like to say thanks, writers, for listening to us fans about wanting to see our faves continue to share adventures. Cheers.
