Menang CemeThanks to NoOne for the heads up. This is great news IMHO and corresponds with what my sources told us recently about the “triangle” and the fact that some of them thought that it was over or that no one would end up with anyone.
Bandar Ceme OnlineHere are some snippets from a recent E!Online article. Here are the spoilerly parts. Note: It looks like they might have their episode numbers a bit mixed up as Episode 6.11 is being filmed now 😉 unless they are making it up as they go along lol
What about Maggie returning as Shannon?
We would love to have Maggie Grace back, but she’s very busyΓÇöshe’s got a movie career. We would love to work it out and have her back on the show, and we’ve talked to her; we’re just trying to get that worked out.
When in season six will Harold Perrineau and Cynthia Watros be appearing?
In the latter half of the season.
Do you have plans to bring Charlie back?
Yes, Dominic Monaghan is back for four episodes this season.
Malcolm David Kelley is the big question I have…
Well, Malcolm is very tricky because of the age thing, and it makes it very hard for him. We would love to have him back, but he has aged and looks older than his character. So that’s the duduk masalah with him, so we’re still trying to see if there’s a way to work that out.
Will the clips from Comic-ConΓÇöthe Mr. Cluck’s commercial and the Kate crime featureΓÇömake sense once we’ve seen the premiere, or will we have to wait to fit them into the mythology?
I think they will start to make sense after the premiere, but it will take a number of episodes for them to fully make sense.
What about the Helen episode with Katey Sagal?
That comes up in the first third of the season.
Obviously, you can’t answer every single question, but some things like the numbersΓÇö
No, obviously, if we said nothing about the smoke monster, if we said nothing about the numbers, we would be killed, but we believe that we recognize what the major questions are, and we will be providing some answers to those questions.
Where are you in terms of writing the episodes?
We are in the middle of writing episode 11, prepping episode 12 and we’re writing episode 13.
How quickly does Claire come back?
I can’t say.
What is the vibe of the simpulan season?
I’d say it’s a lot like the vibe of first seasonΓÇöthe actors talk a lot about how theyΓÇÖve reconnected with each otherΓÇöthere’s almost a nostalgic quality. I think the first season of any show, the actors get together, they bond, and then thereΓÇÖs a drift over time. But because the show has an end, the actors have a chance to sort of rebond, much like they did in the first season when they screened the episodes every Wednesday at each other. There’s a real sense that the connections between these characters is a huge part of the show: Why did these characters cross [paths with] each other?
Are you worried the show will jump the shark?
I think that the show has jumped the shark at least a dozen times now, and fortunately for us, the storytellers, but unfortunately for a mainstream audience, yes, absolutely there was a time 23 million people were watching Lost, and that time has passed. Every time this show takes a risk, declares itself more overtly, there are going to be people saying, “I wasn’t watching a show about time travel. I don’t like that show. I don’t want to watch that anymore.” But we want to tell the story that we’re committed to, and hopefully the audience will stick with us. We can’t really comment past that.
How will this finale compare to other recent series finales?
I think that The Shield was a phenomenal series finale, and certainly Newhart is one of my favorites, but my all-time favorite series finale is M*A*S*H. I remember watching that with my folks; I remember everyone on our street was watching it. I remember Hawkeye basically saying, “It was a baby, it wasn’t a chicken, it was a baby,” and how emotional it was when the chopper finally lifted off and Klinger stayed behind; it stayed with me for my life. I feel like to end a show that people do care about and to give the characters incredibly fulfilling resolutions, M*A*S*H is the pinnacle of something we’re trying to achieve. That being said, it wasn’t a mystery show, so we’ve got to answer all our mysteries and give the audience a satisfying character conclusion, so I’d like to say for the record that our degree of difficulty is very high.
What happens to Sawyer this season?
They’ve kept me in the dark since day one; I don’t know, and I don’t want to know. I’m spoiled now with not having to study much, just get it and go.
Menang CemeHere are some more details from Ryan about today’s filming.
If you missed the set pics, there was a stunt scene being filmed with a car flipping into the marina. Stand-ins for both Charlie and Desmond were spotted on set and apparently the first run at the stunt did not work well as a cable pulling the car snapped, but the second take was successful and fans were able to catch the action via video.
Here is a set video from LOST Locations and update from Ryan:
It was only after the stunt, and after a lunch break, that the context of the scene became clear. Seated in the ill-fated car were Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) and Charlie (Dominic Monaghan), perhaps not long after CharlieΓÇÖs release from the airport holding cell and their subsequent conversation in a bar. Desmond is driving. The pair are arguing. Suddenly, Charlie grabs the wheel from the passenger seat and yanks, and his impulsive act is what sends their vehicle into the ocean.
Menang CemeUpdate: 14th Jan Thanks to Ryan for this update.
UPDATE: Or maybe not. Piecing together separate reports, it was not a wedding, after allΓÇª which might explain why no one saw a bride or groom all day! But thereΓÇÖs a reason why someone might get that impression.
The scene was instead a big-ticket fundraiser for the ΓÇ£Golden Gate Natural History MuseumΓÇ¥ (or something to that effect), featuring a concert, hence the stage. Parked at the entrance, black limousines and Town Cars with California plates, as well as the silver sedan that Desmond was driving in yesterdayΓÇÖs dramatic shoot.
The fundraiser was being hosted by Eloise, and Desmond was apparently crashing the party, looking for Penny. He tries to read the guest list, but Eloise takes it away. She rebuffs him, and he barks, ΓÇ£For what?ΓÇ¥ He then storms off.
Work continued past the museumΓÇÖs closing time, so who knows what followed. But why the early impression that the scene involved a wedding? Apparently, some of the crew were referring to Eloise not as ΓÇ£Mrs. Hawking,ΓÇ¥ but as ΓÇ£Mrs. Widmore.ΓÇ¥
Update: 21:30 Ignore the update below. I misread a spoiler from a source that said Hawking and Wimore are already married. Not sure yet who is getting married in this scene. My Apologies. We’ll update when we know more
Update: 20:55 According to one of my source the Wedding is between Hawking and Widmore but this is not 100% confirmed.
Thanks again to Ryan for pulling together these filming reports.
While additional shooting takes place this morning at the Ilikai Marina, continuing the big stunt scene from yesterday, local blogger GeeWhy of Pulpconnection broke the news of a concurrent ΓÇ£LOSTΓÇ¥ location shoot on Twitter and with a blog post. The scene, fortunately, is considerably more low key than yesterdayΓÇÖs. In fact, itΓÇÖs downright ceremonial.
The ΓÇ£LOSTΓÇ¥ crew took over the ΓÇ£Great LawnΓÇ¥ at Bishop Museum, setting up for a wedding scene. Fortunately, my family are members and regular visitors to the museum, and my wife and daughter just happened to be there today. A stage was set up to host a band. Jack Bender was running the show, with Jean Higgins by his side. The first actor on the set was Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond), dressed up and doing press interviews, but he was not the groom.
When Fionnula Flanagan (Ms. Hawking) showed up, flanked by a slight stand-in dressed in a tuxedo, the likely story became clear.
Bandar Ceme OnlineThanks to our contact PF108 for the following.
A update on yesterdays snippet, I had mentioned Faraday yesterday, and find out now they were using a Faraday photo double for some reason, sorry guys for not having that bit. Not really sure why the real Faraday wasn’t there.
Thursday 1/14/10 is a hospital scene. Desmond, Charlie and Jack. Maybe Jack is the doctor after they have that car crash.
