Greg Grunberg Back On Lost

Menang CemePretty much as we already knew.

“Greg will indeed be back in the February 2 season premiere of Lost as Seth Norris, the doomed captain of Oceanic flight 815 and the very first victim of the infamous smoke monster. “It’s a very cool wrap up that makes me so invested in watching this last season,” says Greg. His part, he concedes, is very small. “It’s actually a voiceover thing I was able to do in L.A. People are going to like hearing me as the Captain.”

Though he wants to keep his dialogue secret, it’s safe to assume it will be something along the lines of: “Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.”

My Least Wise Post Ever?

Bandar CemeWell this will probably get me flamed from all quarters but as I My Least Wise Post Ever?Well this will probably get me flamed from all quarters but as I’ve always done, I post only what I’m sent and as you know I really could not give a flying fig who ends up with who, apart from hopefully Claire and Kate but I digress.

Anywho, I was chatting with one of my contacts who has been lucky enough to see the first 3 episodes and he was amazed at the amount of heated discussion that the “shipper” stuff generated, he really was taken aback and had no idea about shipping before I tried to explain it to him and pointed to a few threads here at DarkUFO. As a result I asked him quite off the cuff, based on what he’s seen and read on the first 10-11 episodes who he thought would end up together. After this we decided it might make for an interesting thread if I contacted other sources and asked their opinions based on what they know of Season 6 so far who they think will ultimately end up together. The chart on the left shows each sources opinion of who will end up with who and in what timeline (Note: The timelines may at some point “merge” so it might not be relevant later in the Season anyway lol). What I found interesting was that a number of sources that there would be no “couples” at all based on their knowledge.

Note: That not all sources have seen all the episodes and some have only read 6-7 scripts or have knowledge of various episodes and there are still 7-8 hrs left of Lost still to film so this is by no means a definitive answer and should be seen as a bit of FUN and a glimpse into where the stories are headed.

NOTE:
And please for the love of God and all that his Holy, keep the comments clean and polite or I’ll be forced to start slapping some of you with my Kipper! (And remember it’s now very easy for me to ban people who leave inappropriate comments here… you have been warned)

Our Spoiler Policy For The Lost Series Finale

Bandar Cemeve been getting a few emails of late from people worried about being spoilt for the Series Our Spoiler Policy for the Lost Series FinaleI’ve been getting a few emails of late from people worried about being spoilt for the Series Finale (6.16/6.17/6.18) considering this will still be filmed during the Season. So I thought it would be a good idea to outline our Policy here at DarkUFO for these last 3 hrs of Lost so that all spoiler fans can feel safe coming into the Spoiler section.

– We will post any casting calls that we find but they will be posted behind “Are You Sure” buttons and their contents only to be discussed in those threads/posts
– Sneak Peeks and Promos/Trailers will be posted. It’s up to you to click to play them 🙂
– Official ABC Promotional photos will be posted behind “Are You Sure” buttons and their contents only to be discussed in those threads/posts
– Set Reports and Photos will be behind “Are You Sure” buttons and their contents only to be discussed in those threads/posts
– No Full Episode Synopsis will be posted although I doubt we’ll be posting any of these this season as our sources have stated that these will not be provided (And I suspect that Lostfan108 is working in some Salt mine in Russia now)
– Any snippets/hangman stuff will be behind “Are You Sure” buttons and their contents only to be discussed in those threads/posts
– We will have a single thread on the Forum where people can discuss ALL Spoilerly aspects of the Finale in one place.

The Forum Thread for the Finale is now live.. no content but make sure you bookmark it.

We hope that the above will allow those who want to know more about the finale the ability to do so, whilst protecting those who want the finale to be relatively spoiler-free to still be able to visit the spoiler section.

Please let me know in the comments if this sounds reasonable to both sets of fans and if you have any suggestions/ideas/concerns.

Lost Season 6 – More Snippets – Episode 6.3/6.4/6.5

Bandar Ceme OnlineUpdate: 10th Jan After getting a number of questions, I confirmed with my source that whilst Kate does indeed have a number, like the others names, she is not one of THE Numbers. I hope to have a full list of all names and numbers shortly.

Here are a couple more snippets from one of my sources who was lucky enough to see some of the early episodes, although he refused to say which ones. I suspect 6.3/6.4 and possibly 6.5 based on information I have from other contacts.

– Flock ventures into Otherton and persuades Sawyer to join him for a little “trip”
– He takes him to a place with lots of names with lines through them
– The names all have numbers attached
– Sawyer finds his own name on the list – He is Number 15
– Locke’s name is crossed out – He was Number 4
– Kate’s name is on there as Austen – (My source did not reveal her number)
– Jack and Hurley discover a special “mirror” at the Lighthouse (Based on other informasi I have I think this is 6.5)
– The Mirror gives Jack a “flash” of his past when it is “aligned” correctly.

Ian Sommerhalder On Season Premiere

Menang CemeIan Somerhalder soon will be heading back to the ΓÇÿLostΓÇÿ set in Hawaii ΓÇô for the second time this season ΓÇô to film scenes for the ABC seriesΓÇÖ grand swan song (premiering February 2).

Somerhalder, who now stars as the deliciously deviant Damon on The CWΓÇÖs ΓÇÿVampire Diaries,ΓÇÖ says he was left gobsmacked by the script he was handed for the first batch of scenes he shot back in September.

ΓÇ£I was SO blown away and so impressed [by the season opener], and so thankful I was even a part of that,ΓÇ¥ dearly departed BooneΓÇÖs portrayer shared at a ΓÇÿVampire DiariesΓÇÖ cocktail reception held during the TCA winter press tour.

With the entire ΓÇÿLostΓÇÖ cast in lockdown mode when it comes to spilling anything remotely resembling a spoiler, Somerhalder would only say of the Season 6 premiere, ΓÇ£ItΓÇÖs big. I mean, the script weighed about 4 lbs. You sit there and go, ΓÇÿWow. This is an episode of television.ΓÇÖΓÇ¥

Asked if the distance between his two shoot dates means weΓÇÖll get a bit of Boone in the opener, then another blast much farther down the line, he surmised that his scenes ΓÇ£will be spread out throughout the season.ΓÇ¥

Hmmm.

Though itΓÇÖs nearly a 10-hour trek from the ΓÇÿVampire DiariesΓÇÖ set in Atlanta to Lostland, Somerhalder made the most of his September ΓÇ£reunionΓÇ¥ with both the cast and Hawaii itself.

During those 27 hours in Oahu, he said, ΓÇ£I had dinners with my buddies Matthew Fox and Josh [Holloway] and their families, I went to, like, four of my favorite restaurants, AND I went snorkeling, AND I shot what I needed to shoot for the show.ΓÇ¥

Jj Abrams On The Ending Of Lost

Bandar CemeWith ΓÇ£Lost,ΓÇ¥ because you knew what (executive producers) Damon [Lindelof] and Carlton [Cuse] were going to be doing, as the selesai season was playing out, were there moments of real excitement and joy, as you learned what was going to happen?

JJ: With this season, theyΓÇÖre doing some amazing, intricate stuff thatΓÇÖs really unexpected and very different, in a lot of ways. The way that itΓÇÖs going to conclude is consistent with their unbelievable track record of brilliant storytelling, thatΓÇÖs really surprising in ways that are mind-bending, which is the thing about the show that I think theyΓÇÖve done so wonderfully.

Is the end of the series what you thought it would be, from the beginning?

JJ: Oh, no way! No. There are little threads and elements, here and there, but truthfully, when we started it, we didnΓÇÖt know exactly what was in the hatch. We had ideas, but we didnΓÇÖt know to what extent it would be. The notion of The Others was there, but we didnΓÇÖt know exactly what that would mean. Damon hadnΓÇÖt come up with the idea of flash forwards yet. To see where we are and what theyΓÇÖve created is insanely gratifying and itΓÇÖs something that no one could have predicted, at the beginning of it. The evolution of it is really part of their glorious experiment of taking a show that we were all, at the beginning, saying, ΓÇ£How do you make this a series?,ΓÇ¥ and to see what Damon and Carlton have done is amazing to me.

You had the idea for the basis of it though, right?

JJ: There were a lot of ideas, but the specificity with which the thing played out was part of that leap of faith that it was going to work. That doesnΓÇÖt mean that you plan everything out. You have big ideas, but when the better bigger ideas show up, you go with them.

What have you learned from ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ that you can take to other genre shows?

JJ: ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ is a special example. ItΓÇÖs hard to know. You could say that you shouldnΓÇÖt get too intricately serialized because, at a certain point, itΓÇÖs difficult. But, the truth is, I donΓÇÖt know if Lost would have worked, if it had been anything else, and I donΓÇÖt know how you would apply that to another show.

If the minutia and mythology hadnΓÇÖt worked with the viewers, would you have tried to change ΓÇ£Lost,ΓÇ¥ or would you have just walked away?

JJ: ItΓÇÖs hard to imagine the alternate universe version of ΓÇ£LostΓÇ¥ where you think, ΓÇ£Oh, thatΓÇÖs the version that is the other way to tell the story.ΓÇ¥ It really does feel like the trajectory that was started had no obvious place to go. Over time, they created this amazing narrative that is really just a result of that leap of faith and trusting that the characters will tell us what the show is, as much as anything. Damon and Carlton really did an amazing job.

With ABC announcing an end-date so far in advance, did that help immeasurably, in terms of the storytelling?

JJ: ThatΓÇÖs something that Damon and Carlton insisted upon. They said, ΓÇ£Tell us how fast weΓÇÖre running, so that we know what the end-game is and where the finish line is.ΓÇ¥ If you donΓÇÖt know whether itΓÇÖs 10 seasons or 6 seasons, youΓÇÖre spinning your wheels. IΓÇÖm thrilled to see billboards that say, ΓÇ£The Final Season.ΓÇ¥ You donΓÇÖt see that very often. To know that itΓÇÖs a show thatΓÇÖs going to end on its terms means that there will be a sense of inevitability to it, and not a sense of a series reacting to a marketplace or a viewership. ItΓÇÖs really cool.

How satisfying do you think this selesai season will be for those who have followed the show since the beginning?

JJ: I think it will be really bittersweet. While I think it will be very satisfying, I also think itΓÇÖs going to be the end of something that, for the cast and everyone involved, has been a magical ride. So, the idea that itΓÇÖs ending is a little sad, but itΓÇÖs much better to end this way than to have it be, ΓÇ£You should have ended two years ago.ΓÇ¥ I believe it will be a satisfying ending, for sure.
