Terry O’quinn On Locke’s Future

Thanks to LostinSC for the following.

Viewers of ABC’s “Lost” saw the body of a dead John Locke in the show’s Season 5 finale Wednesday night. However, a very alive Terry O’Quinn, who plays Locke, was in Spartanburg on Thursday to play in the BMW Charity Pro-Am at Carolina Country Club.

Between holes, O’Quinn was happy to talk to fans about golf, the finale and the fate of his character in the show’s simpulan season, beginning in 2010.

O’Quinn called himself an OK golfer, saying he would be happy with an 85 or under.

“I played well on the front. A little bit rough on the back,” he said as his group neared hole 17.

O’Quinn said he hasn’t seen the finale and didn’t know how the story was edited.

“Don’t tell me,” he joked. “I want to be surprised.”

In the season cliffhanger, a bomb, which could prevent Flight 815 from ever crashing on the mysterious island, was detonated.

As for his character, O’Quinn says he’s really gone. Locke’s dead body was rolled out of a metal box toward the end of the two-hour episode, baffling islanders who had been following a Locke imposter. Exactly who is now occupying Locke’s body wasn’t revealed. O’Quinn said it would be “a good guess” to assume it’s a man seen with the infamous Jacob in the beginning of the episode.

“I think, unfortunately, I think it’s ended for Locke. But I’m still there, as far as I know,” O’Quinn said. “I don’t know how it’s going to end for this other guy. I’m sad. I miss John Locke, poor guy. He was a pawn.”

O’Quinn is gearing up to play a new character when the sixth season begins next year. As for the rest of the story line, he swears he has no idea.

“Your guess is honestly as good as mine is,” he said. “There’s going to be some confrontation that will somehow, I’m guessing, have to do with Jack or Locke or something like that. I think these guys are just setting up good and evil. It’s the way Locke said in the very beginning of the show: One is light and one is dark. Two sides. I think that’s what we’ve got.”

Elizabeth Mitchell Will Not Be Series Regular In Season 6

Update: 16:00 Thanks to RJ for this little update from E!Online.

5:38 a.m.: Someone asks McPherson more about Elizabeth Mitchell, and he says, “She’s a fantastic actress and we’re thrilled to be able to have her do both [Lost and V]…You’ll see her on Lost, but V is her next piece.”

Update: 14:00 At today’s ABC Upfront Presentation they ABC Panel had this to say. “Very grateful to producers of Lost to let Elizabeth Mitchell film V pilot but “I think you will see her on Lost.”

Here are the latest details about Elizabeth Mitchell and her character Juliet and if we will see her again. To be honest I think the writers left it open to see how well her new show V does, but here is Ausiello’s take:

Thanks to Everyone that sent this in.

And now for some news that should surprise no one: ABC is expected to announce tomorrow that it has picked up a reboot of the camptastic ’80s thriller V and that Lost heroine Elizabeth Mitchell is a full-time castmember.

Translation: She will not be returning to Lost as a series regular.

However, before you go declaring Juliet DOA from last week’s detonated hydrogen bomb, I should point out that this piece of scoop comes with a big but attached: Mitchell’s Lost days are not done. Multiple sources confirm that the actress is expected to appear in an unspecified number of episodes next season, so it’s entirely possible Juliet survived Jughead and her absence will be explained in another way. (Check out Doc Jensen’s column this Wednesday for a comprehensive Juliet theorypalooza.)

Latest From Ausiello About Season 6

*UPDATED* Added a little tidbit about Elizabeth Mitchell

Not much but here you go. Enjoy!

Question: This is probably a long shot, but got any Lost scoop? –Jeff

Ausiello: Yeah, having Lost scoop in late May is about as unlikely as me combing through my old transcripts and finding an unused Damon Lindelof quote pertaining to the show’s series finale. OMG, looky here: “We’ve been planning out the selesai season for four years now. And of all the talks we have had about the show, [reuniting all the castaways] is the subject that has come up the most. The ending was almost where we began, and we had to figure out how to get there. It’s like a wedding where the reception is the part that requires the most planning and is the most fun to plan. We’ve exchanged our vows and I am ready to go party.”

Question: Realistically, how many episodes of Lost do you think Elizabeth Mitchell will be in next year? –Derek

Ausiello: My gut is telling me we’ll see her in two episodes max. But my gut has been wrong before. Oh, who am I kidding, no it hasn’t.

Michael Emerson Talks About Season 6 And Jacob

Michael Emerson Talks About Season 6

Anyways do you have any more Lost scoop? –Erick

Ausiello: May’s series finale is going to be a real downer, predicts Michael Emerson. “I don’t think Lost will have a happy ending,” he confessed to us at the Saturn Awards. “It’s the end and I think we are going to start seeing more casualties. I would put money on major characters being killed. I believe it will be a sad ending to the show — or at least bittersweet. I think it will definitely be a series finale for grownups.” Emerson, meanwhile, is still trying to make sense of the season 5 finale. (Join the club!) “I killed Jacob… maybe… probably,” he hedged. “It isn’t like we haven’t seen plenty of other people be killed and somehow come back. And what does it mean if I did kill him? I Who the hell was he anyway? Obviously, Ben wanted a father. So much of our show is about bad fathers. It is one of our biggest themes. And Jacob disappointed in those simpulan moments. And maybe Jacob made it easy for him. Maybe that was all meant to happen. Is it all ordained? Maybe. And for that matter, can Jacob even be killed? Stay tuned is my response.”

Curzon Q&A With Darlton And Jack Bender

Update: 6th July 21:40 Thanks to Ramsey for the following.

So my pal Matt and I attended the really fun – and a bit emotional Bandar Ceme at bits where they showed clips like the Oceanic survivors buliding and sailing off on a raft from Season 1 and Desmond finally getting thru to Penny in The Constant.

Anyhow – there was a signing after and all I had on me was a copy of ‘Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince’ that i’m trying to read before the movie comes out. Carlton & Damon said during the Q&A that JK Rowling’s brave announcement that they’ll only be 7 Harry Potter books inspired them to make LOST just 6 seasons long. They both signed by book and after a read what Damon wrote inside: ”Locke is VERY simular to Snape!” Shock! LOL

Update: 6th July Thanks to Deniz who as at the event for sending us his photos.

Hey All,
LOST writers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse along with Director Jack Bender held a Q&A Session in Curzon. Lucky for us, several fans attended and were able to provide us with the details.

We were sent both the audio and a summary, so special thanks to Gob for the audio and my good friend and podcast partner Karen for the heads up about a summary from her friend Matt who was in attendance as well.

NOTE: Since the panel was in some auditorium, the folks in the audience asking questions were much louder than Darlton and Bender, so I tried my best to balance it out. So I hope you all can listen. In case you can’t listen or hear the audio too well, the summary is behind the button.

Plus, I have not had a chance to listen to the audio or read the whole summary yet, so I am posting this all here in the spoilers section just in case.

Enjoy!!

Latest On Potential Return Of Dead Losties In Season 6

Thanks to Marisa for the heads up!

The exec producer of Ian Somerhalder’s new CW series, The Vampire Diaries, is close friends with Lost exec producer Damon Lindelof. So when he’s not sucking blood in the South, Ian may reappear on the island as Boone. While apartment hunting in Atlanta, where Diaries shoots, with his new on-screen vampire brother Paul Wesley, Ian tells me, “I’ve heard a little bit about what’s happening this season on Lost, and there’s definitely an avenue they’re going down to bring back a lot of us.”

Any crossover [with] Lost would “only help the success of our show…as long as it’s not screwing up production,” Ian says. So what if Boone, Shannon, Charlie and the rest of Lost’s “living dead” turn out to be vampires? “That would not be good,” says the actor, who currently lives around the corner from Maggie Grace (Shannon) in Venice Beach. “There are already enough vampires flying around the airwaves. If we can keep it at True Blood, Twilight and Vampire Diaries, the world will be better off!”
