“What the hell’s going on with Lost? I don’t think they know. I think from week to week they go, ‘Let’s do this.’ And then someone else says, ‘No, this would be a good idea.’ I love that show, but I don’t think they know what they’re doing.” —Ellen DeGeneres

“I am flattered that Ellen is a fan of our show,” says exec producer Carlton Cuse, who promises Ellen there is a master plan, with some sweet payoffs, if she sticks through the selesai season. Dominic Monaghan recently had a secret breakfast meeting with producer Damon Lindelof to discuss how he might manage returning to Lost as Charlie. “We would like there to be some visitations from people we’ve loved over time,” Cuse says. Michael Emerson, who plays Ben, confirms, “The selesai season will resemble the first. I know there are plans for big people we have parted company with to reappear.” But one crucial component from the very first pilot episode will most likely be absent from the reunion: cocreator J.J. Abrams, who tells me he won’t be returning to Hawaii to direct the series finale. “I would selfishly love it,” he says, “but director Jack Bender has been living in Hawaii for years and doing amazing work. For me to come in and direct the finale would be cruel and unusual.”

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!”

Getting Lost

Thanks to Rachel for the heads up.

In this installment of TVGuide.com’s Getting Lost video series, we plucked a few reader questions out of the Getting Lost mailbag.

The topics that are addressed:

• Did Matthew Fox and a young Malcolm David Kelley pre-film a scene during Season 1 to be used in the series finale?
• With Emilie de Ravin back as a series regular for the selesai season, will Claire be alive… or that special Lost kind of dead?
• Has a time slot — or at least a month — been set for Lost’s selesai season premiere?

Update: 20:00 Thanks to Kyle for the following

These are pics I took in Hawaii in mid-march right before the S5 finale was being filmed. I figued the stand was for the end of that season and was surprised to see it wasn’t used. It must be for S6 sometime- probably a flashback then. Anyways, the interesting thing about the stand was that the hole underneath it where the bomb must have been lowered was covered with a cap in the shape of a dharma logo! How did dharma get a hold of it? I’ve attached some pics.

Your Q&A with Titus Welliver made me even more impatient for Lost’s return (as if that were possible). Got any other scoop on the akibat season? — Meg
MATT: It depends on what you make of the following: TVGuide.com editor Adam Bryant just returned from a trip to Hawaii, and during a tour of Lost filming locations, the wooden structure from which Jughead originally dangled was still erect on Oahu. Keeping in mind that Lost is meticulous about putting away their toys after they are done being used, I ask: Why is a set piece from the 1954 storyline still camera-ready? (ABC had no comment.)

Lost Stars Spill New Season Secrets At Comic-Con

Thanks to Donna and Marisa for the heads up.

Everyone wants to know how the akibat Bandar Ceme Online season of Lost will wrap up. What can we expect? Executive producer Carlton Cuse says, “The time travel season is over. The flash-forward season is over. We have something different planned.” Here are a few clues to what’s coming:

Executive producer Damon Lindelof says the akibat season will address the origin of the food drop from Season 2.

A fake episode of America’s Most Wanted was screened for Comi-Con fans showing host John Walsh narrating the true crime story of Kate Austen. Kate, it was revealed, didn’t kill her step-father, plumbing company owner Wayne Jannsen, as viewers believed. In his narration, Walsh said, “Fate would intervene on this tragic evening. Having made an earlier date with his wife, Janssen instead sent his apprentice, Ryan Milner, to lock up in his place. As Austen had devised, the building went up in a violent ball of flames. But it was Ryan who would perish inside instead of her intended target. Austen was detained for the murder of Ryan Milner before violently escaping the custody of the U.S. Marshall. She’s on the run to this day. Federal authorities consider her armed and very dangerous.”

Jorge Garcia believes that bringing Dominic Monaghan out on stage during the Comi-Con panel pretty much confirmed his involvement in Season 6.

Former cast member Adawale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko) was also at Comi-Con promoting his film, “G. I. Joe” and, according to a source, had hoped to hang out backstage with his former co-stars. But that did not happen. Still, Jorge sensed that Adawale got the strongest applause during an In Memorium reel that played, saluting all the slain characters. “He got an incredible cheer,” says Jorge. “He definitely stood out.”

A promo image for the new season revealed all the show’s characters (both dead and alive) lined up in a long row. John Locke is in the center, with his back turned toward us, looking over his shoulder. Josh Holloway told me his thoughts on the placement: “I guess Locke’s become Satan. I’ve really enjoyed his sudden change into becoming the evil guy.”

Josh was most excited to hear the news that Elizabeth Mitchell would be back in some way.
“Juliet coming back is exciting,” he says. But if Juliet returns only as a corpse, Josh says it would have a horrible effect on Sawyer. “It would destroy him. It would bring him right back to where he started. I love that idea of ripping off all his growth and getting back to Sawyer, the salty dog. But I imagine then he’ll have to get back to wanting to live again.”

Elizabeth Mitchell has been under a gag order not to speak ever since Lost’s season
finale aired in May. But she finally broke her silence with me. “What happened at the very end of the season is they told me that the character of Juliet had reached a natural conclusion,” says Liz. “It was very sudden, but I said ‘Okay,’ thinking that was the end of it. People knew I was available and I got a bunch of scripts. I fell in love with V and said I would do it. It was really crazy because I wasn’t planning on jumping back into another series. And then Lost’s La Fleur episode
aired and the fan response was really good, so then Lost called again, and that’s what I can’t talk about. It’s possible Juliet’s just dead, but I think it’s going to be a little bit more than that. I hope that when she comes back she can give Sawyer a really good reason for going on. What I really want is to have a big old fight with Ben, but that will probably never happen. But we will definitely see her again. They haven’t really told me how many episodes I’ll be doing but ABC said they’d work it out. They did when I was shooting the V pilot. I literally did four days of V, four days of Lost, four days of Vi.”

Michael Emerson has spent his hiatus wondering if the character seen sitting next to Jacob on the beach in the season finale will be related to Esau, a character from the Old Testament. “Jacob is like a character of light and goodness and Esau was more earth-bound, more a creature of
the dirt and darkness,” Emerson explained to me. “There’s biblical themes in our show. Whether they want to establish any direct parallel to Jacob and Esau remains to be seen.”

Nestor Carbonell is not surprisingly “thrilled” to be joining the cast as a series regular. “My family and I are moving to Hawaii next week,” he told me. “I’ve been flying back and forth so this is a big thrill for us. I have a 16 out of 18 episode commitment, so I’ll be on the island when they need me. They’ve told me they’ll answer the major questions about my character Richard—whether or not I’m immortal, how old I am. Because I don’t seem to age.” He says he believes his character is connected to the Black Rock pirate ship and perhaps, Ancient Egypt. “I’m most anxious to find out who’s pulling the strings on this island.”

So are we!!
