As promised, here is our summary of the Lost Podcast posted last Friday on ABC.com:
-Damon and Carlton make sure we know this is a “special” suprise podcast given the dates relevance to the crash date of Oceanic 815
-At end of the 3rd Season, the survivors have been on the Island for about 100 days
-They are “busily” at work on Season 4, not sure when they are exactly going back on the air, but will be in February for sure; again day and time slot are not official
-There will be flash forwards and flash backs moving forward
-Carlton and Damon then suprise a few Lost listeners by calling them and allowing them to ask questions:
Warning, Possible Spoilers!!
*First Question: Have you guys had a definite plan related to the love triangle of Sawyer/Kate/Jack?
-They have agreed on who Kate will ultimately end up with, but didn’t elaborate beyond that… The flash forward was not the end of the show, even though things look grim for Kate and Jack.
*Second Question: Was the flash forward a definite occurrence, or was that a “possible” future?
-Damon and Carlton are not big fans of multiple futures, and are working very hard to maintain continuity, “the future is the future”. Damon does say that time and time travel will continue to be a show motif.
*Third Question: What is happening with Richard Alpert?
-Nestor was cast to play Alpert and his storyline was ramped up given his initial performance around the same time he did the “Cane” pilot. They essentially have him parked for now and the success of Cane will probably dictate how available Nestor is so that Alpert’s storyline can be tied up.
*Fourth Question: Are Nikki and Paulo really dead?
-Yes (there was more conversation here, rather pointless)
Fifth Question: Will we find out if Kate is pregnant with Sawyer’s child?
-We will find out, and probably within the first 4 episodes
Sixth Question: Is Mikhail still alive?
-No, but will probably be part of backstories, etc.
That pretty much sums up the podcast, nothing profound, but at least we have more information on where some things stand. The most interesting conversation was related to the confirmation that the flash forward we saw is the definite future, not a possible one; so Jack really does get to that alcoholic, pill-popping, miserable state of existence we saw him in… I cannot wait until February!
