What's with the subtle 'cranial-increase'?

Possibly one of the worst composited posters I've ever seen.

In "Meet Kevin Johnson", Danielle Rousseau was shot and killed. According to an interview with her husband, Goran Gajić, Furlan had requested that the producers write her character out of the show, as she was tired of living in Hawaii—a type of ennui known among Lost cast members as "island fever".

When i read that interview a few weeks ago, i assumed Damon was refering to the actor who played Jacob. He played a very significant role but was never a regular. (Granted, he was stabbed in the heart and kicked into a fire in the most recent episode, but with flashbacks no one's ever really "dead".) If he decided not to come back, i could see that being a bit of a problem for plotting out the final season.

Well fuck it why not just wait until after the olymics. I would rather have that then just a few episodes and then a big break.

LOST is on Tuesday now. Thankfully they kept it away from the TV clusterfuck that is Thursday night.

Sepinwall implies in the article that the show will be airing opposite the Olympics:

2)It means ABC didn't feel the need to hold the return until after the Winter Olympics (which run from Feb. 12-28), or, worse, to air the season in two chunks, one before the Vancouver Games, one after. Not everybody wants to watch bobsledding, but network executives seem to live in fear of the Olympics, even now that they're less popular than they used to be.
Perhaps Cuse was incorrect when he said that earlier?

I thought it was pretty much solidified that they were airing it in two chunks. If true, this super news just became super duper news!!!

Sepinwall on the Olympic break in the comments:
Quote:
If that was the case at one point, I don't believe it is anymore. Someone at ABC said it's going to be a crazy two weeks, with Lost going head-to-head with both Olympics and what they assume will be two-hour Idols.
WOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Regarding Juliet...if what some of us seem to think will happen does happen (the time line being reset and all) I'm guessing she'll be back working with her asshole ex-husband in whatever science lab she was working on, since I assume Ethan and Richard never came to visit her and have her ex-husband hit by a bus what with them being blown up in a nuke and all (whew!). In which case I can see Jack and co. merely visiting her down the road.
post #265 of 496
Choked by speculation...

Does anyone know how much data from insiders EW has on this show?
post #266 of 496
Since it's confirmed there will be no promo, how do you produce your own ones?
  • I will let Hugo Reyes ad libitum explain us how everything will conclude. Extra points if he messes up the timelines...
  • A cheesy 1 minute montage of hugs on island, cut to Hurley's CD player running out of batteries, a montage of beat downs along "Scentless Apprentice". Giacchino music. Done.
  • A more viral stuff, bring together all the bullshit thrown by Ben in the last years.
  • Nestor Carbonell putting some heavy make up, fade to black, "This time is different" (It was done, I know).
post #267 of 496
They should have David Lynch take small bits and pieces from the first few episodes, some as short as a single frame, and arrange them in a totally disturbing way!

anyone catch this AMAZING Lost Season 6 Promo for Spanish Television?

(no new footage obviously, but a pretty inspired promo nonetheless)
post #269 of 496
Jesus, that is so cool! I love how the squares on the board represent various hatches on the island - one chessboard square representing the hatch with Locke and Jack looking down into it, another square as the hatch with Sawyer hanging onto Juliet right before she falls into it. Great stuff!

Holy fuck that's great. They need to have that as a DVD extra on the Season 6 DVD set.
post #272 of 496
So what's the deal with Henry Ian Cusick not being a series regular? Surely Desmond will be back...
post #273 of 496
i was really hoping desmond's story wouldn't be over, but i suppose if he survives the gunshot wound than that's all he really has left to do. Season 6 would be very damaged by an absence of a Desmond episode (or at least involvement of some sort) seeing as he has the best episodes (imo) of seasons 2, 3, and 4
post #274 of 496
That promo is fucking awesome.
post #275 of 496
Wow, that promo is just...perfect.

As for Desmond, I'm guessing that, if there IS a new time line, he's the only one who will "remember" how things "should" be. You know, because he's special.

that could be great. for all the buildup of Desmond's importance, i have a hard time believing turning the fail safe key was his destiny, especially after faraday's insistence that Desmond is "miraculously special".

they've confirmed that Desmond is NOT a regular this season, but that he will be in the premiere. Hawking insists that the island isn't done with Desmond so i'm sure he'll play some significance. keep in mind, blowing the nuke might make it so 815 never crashes, but what does that mean for the people not on the plane?

I just thought about it and I'm already sad. If the timelie is curse corrected, if, Desmond would be more prone to sacrifice since he has no Charlie Jr. waiting on his cradle.

I wonder if the Cusick "allegedlly" groping PA's on the set have anything to do with Desmond being a not a regular this season?

Ack! I can't watch the link at work! You all have me super hyped up.

Another thing that's gotten me jonsing for Lost, EW discusses the significance of Lost's premiere date of Feb. 2.
post #280 of 496
Nothing really to add, except that if you have to pick a pop song to be Lost's theme, you can't do much better than "Everything In Its Right Place".
post #281 of 496
Freakin' awesome trailer. They should translate that baby and run it on ABC.

I diverge a bit from most Chewers in that Desmond has never been my favorite character (his episodes are cool & emotionally moving, but most of the time he's so disconnected from the rest of the cast/story that it feels like he's on another show). However, I really hope his "specialness" comes into play at least once this next season...they've just built it up too much to drop it now.
post #282 of 496
At EW only this deserves attention:

Quote:
THE JACOB/MIB RIDDLE: FOUR QUESTIONS
1. Who was really ''living'' in ''Jacob's Shack''?
What We Know: Ben seemed to think the flickering entity he knew to be Jacob resided within Horace Goodspeed's ramshackle romantic getaway. When Locke made his second visit to Jacob's derelict haunt in late 2004/early 2005 (goaded by an odd vision provided by some suspect Island agency), he encountered Christian, who claimed to speak on Jacob's behalf. Ilana — the bounty hunter who seems to be a key member in Jacob's off-Island cult/army — also believed that her god/general was residing in the Island cabin. But when she got to the shack in late 2007/early 2008, she found it abandoned, and noted: ''Jacob hasn't been here in a long time. Someone else has been using the cabin.''
Theory: Jacob never lived in the cabin. It was something of a prison for the Man In Black, who was bound by the enchanted ash that surrounded the structure — at least until it was disrupted. MIB presented himself as Flickering Ben and Christian (and Claire, too?) to manipulate John Locke. MIB was capable of projecting himself/itself in various forms — but his/its range of power and potency was limited because his/its core essence was trapped and confined to Chez Goodspeed.

2. What is the Loophole?
What we know: In the season finale, the Man In Black told Jacob he wanted to kill him. He then immediately followed the declaration by saying that sooner or later, he would find a loophole. That was around 1845, the presumed date of the Black Rock's arrival to the Island. When MIB, posing as Locke, showed up at Jacob's true residence — the base of the Four Toed Statue — Jacob said, ''Well, it looks like you found your loophole.'' Fake Locke then ordered Ben to kill Jacob. That was late 2007/early 2008.
Theory: In coming weeks, we'll explore what MIB might have meant by a loophole back in 1845. As for Jacob, I wonder if there was ironic double meaning to his wry observation. Clearly, he was referring to the Loophole as it was understood back in 1845. But he could have also been referring to MIB's escape from the cabin: Remember, Ilana saw that the circle of ash surrounding the structure had been broken, creating a very literal ''loophole.'' In fact, the Loophole may only refer to the rules governing MIB's containment. If you believe, as many do, that the conflict/gameplay between Jacob and MIB is eternal and cyclical, the perhaps MIB's incarceration and escape could be stock elements in their repeating drama. So when MIB mentioned loophole back in 1845, he may have only been referring to his need to engineer an escape from whatever pseudo-jail Jacob had him in during that era and iteration of their rivalry.

3. If the Man In Black had been residing within the old Goodspeed cabin, then when did he get out?
What we know: As stated earlier, Locke's second visit to the cabin was in late 2004. At that time, Ghost Christian directed the man of faith to ''move the Island,'' i.e., turn the donkey wheel and relocate the Island in space and time. Ajira 316 crashed on the Island in late 2007/early 2008, and MIB, now freed from the cabin, began posing as Locke at that time.
Theory: Is it possible that someone on the Island (an Other perhaps?) liberated MIB sometime between late 2004/early 2005 and late 2007/early 2008? Is it possible that someone came to the Island during that three-year window and did the deed? (We know that would be difficult, because they'd need to find the Island first.) Is it possible that MIB had his own allies aboard Ajira and they busted him out? Or is it possible that MIB's escape had nothing to do with some outside agent disrupting his circle of ash? Perhaps the Loophole was fulfilled as the result of a cosmically significant event (turning the donkey wheel? the arrival of Ajira?) and MIB broke the circle himself when he left the cabin. I don't know. In fact, my main purpose in posing all these questions is to orientate your mind to consider the provocative implications of this question:

4. Did Jacob really touch Sayid and Hurley?
What we know: Sayid and Hurley were the only castaways touched by Jacob after their initial visit to the Island. Jacob was killed five days after Ajira landed on Hydra Island. One day before Hydra's departure — so six days prior to his death — Jacob was in Hurley's taxi, giving him a conspicuous touch and entrusting him with a guitar case. So how did Jacob get back to the Island so quickly? Was he on Ajira, too? Or does Jacob possess god-like omniscience that allows him to be all places at once?
Theory: Let's assume for now that Jacob isn't god-like at all. Let's assume he's mortal (Ben did kill him after all) and that there are severe limitations on his space-time mobility. If it's possible that MIB was released from his imprisonment as early as December 2004/January 2005, then MIB could have traveled away from the Island to finalize his plan to attack Jacob — a plan that may have included posing as Jacob to influence the destinies of Sayid and Hurley. Season 6 of Lost — the twilight of the Lost saga — could end up being a lot like the Twilight saga: there's Team Jacob...and there's Team Man In Black. Who knows? Maybe we'll find out that MIB is actually an undead vampire named Edward, too.

Regardless, we totally need to get some fans to make up and sell Team So-and-So buttons. Get cracking on that, people! Next week, we'll be back with additional Jacob/Man In Black thoughts and more. Until then...

Namaste,
Doc Jensen
post #283 of 496
1. Christian was keeping an eye at this jail/shelter. MiB was the one who scarred Ben.
2. The loophole is the way MiB found to kill/approach Jacob. At the same time there's no guarantee Jacob is one step ahead. What human action started the breach for the loophole?
3. He went out as soon as the monkey-wheel got stuck.
4. I have no fucking clue. I wonder what is on that guitar case.

That case was settled a couple of months ago. Not sure if they took a "wait and see" attitude to that, but he should at least be available for the second half of the season if that's the case.

Michael Emerson is just one cool dude. He doesn't sound like he's giving some PR bullshit. I believes what he's saying. I agree with him that the terms "good" and "bad" don't have any real importance on this show. People asking those questions are asking the wrong questions.

I think the term 'good' does have importance to the show - but not in the sense that the word is used to describe a 'morally virtuous person.'

Other than that, I completely agree with him, in the sense that I don't think anyone shown on the show so far is either 'evil' or 'righteous.' There are shades of serious gray to every character, and I think that's very much the point.

The final battle on this show is, I think, the battle between fatalism/determinism and hope/free will.

I hope the first scene of season six is Richard first crashing landing/getting shipwrecked on the Island. Or who knows, maybe he was born there. Just start with Richard!
post #292 of 496
We better get a Richard Alpert flashback episode. I assume after the events of 2007 in The Incident that he will be at the center of any conflict between Locke, the Others and these new people. Maybe this "war" that's been talked about for several seasons.

Doc Jansen has always written obsessive columns. I'm not sure what personal issues you're referring to, but I just thought he was an extremely devout fan of the show.

EOnline posted some pretty spoilery stuff:

This quote from the article feels like a huge spoiler hint to me, but I found it intriguing (I'll black out just in case, along with my speculation):


"I can assure you that the first episode is nothing short of amazing, and you best have your DVR hooked up because you'll want to watch it at least twice. No, make that 18 times. "

Is this a hint that the pilot will reveal elements of the entire 18-hour season?
post #295 of 496
My speculation on season 6.

The bomb does reset the past (for everyone in 1977) and the castaways end up on Ajira 316 but for entirely different reasons. Those are explored through the flashbacks and hopefully will reflect on what we know of the alternate timeline that's been leading up to this giant paradox. As in, Jin and Sun have different memories of the past 3 years. And Jack doesn't know Locke. How they get from Jack with no memory of having been on the island to him being the new Jacob in 18 episodes is beyond me, so I'll just chalk up the above to "it'd be cool if..." For all I know, they'll flash into 2007 still in their Dharma gear.
post #296 of 496
The time resting thing does not really sound like a good idea to me, but I'm open to it if they do something cool. Say they're back on flight 815 and Jack finds himself relieved until he realizes that he still retains the memories of everything he went through, and everyone else who survived the crash realizes it too looking at eachother. Even those who died on the crash realize something is off. So how do they handle it?

But even I'm not crazy about that idea either. Anyway hope S6 blows me away.

An even stranger idea:

We see Flight 815, everything goes exactly as it should to Rose telling Jack that she's not a flyer. On the very moment the turbulence is supposed to hit and it doesn't, everyone snaps into a sort of trans. "This is not how it's supposed to happen." Everyone remains silent, Jack gets out of his seat and goes to the cockpit to meet Seth. Seth looks back "I know", Jack nods. Seth nosedives the plane straight to the island and all the passengers closing their eyes and waiting for the crash just like how Jack looked in the S3 finale on that flight. Plane crashes, time course corrects itself, the LOST title, commercial.

I dunno, just a kooky idea that came up.

Pages 5-6 are really good. "From this perspective, Richard may represent a group of people on the Island who are aware of this looping circuit and are charged with perpetuating it — or he may represent a group of rebels who are determined to bring the looping to an end."

That sort of goes back to something I'd proposed (and no doubt many others before me) at the end of last season: that Richard is neither a servant of Jacob nor Tropical Flagg, but a balancing force between the two. The grey to their white and black.

Regardless, thanks for the link.
