Podcast Description: Executive Producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse rehash "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham", prehash "LaFleur" (3/4/09) and take fan questions.

Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof rehash "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham"

  • "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham" was a big turning point in Lost.
    • The audience has been teased for a long time about how Locke ended up in that coffin. And finally got the answer.
  • The long scene in which Locke is murdered is one of the best in the entire show, in Damon and Carlton's opinion.
    • For Damon, it is "number two behind the scene where Sun and Hurley are waiting for Vincent to take a dump because he might have swallowed her wedding ring." ("...And Found")
    • Or perhaps number three, after Charlie's death. ("Through the Looking Glass, Part 2")
  • Widmore is obviously trying to help Locke. Why?
  • In the crash of the Ajira 316, Ben was injured in some way.

Prehash of "LaFleur"

  • The question is: when is that Ajira plane in relation to where we saw Jack and Kate and Hurley?
  • LaFleur is also a French word. It means "the flower".
    • Maybe it's the name of someone that we're gonna meet.

Word Associations

The first fan question is actually Damon answering on a Lost-related word association game, with Carlton reading him the word list. Following are his answers:

  • Apollo bars: Sugary
  • Sayid: Torturer
  • Memory: Confusing
  • Trojan horse: Odysseus
  • Orange juice:Juliet
  • Purple: Jin
  • Hans Christian Anderson: The Little Mermaid
  • Blood
    • Damon says he don't like the game anymore.
  • Bunnies: Dr. Pierre Chang

Fan questions

  • Where is the Vincent flashback episode? Will all six seasons end up being the Vincent flashback?
    • "Certain things need to be saved for the theatrical motion picture."
  • Is Annie the same person as one of the main characters? Is one of them a clone of Annie? ("The Man Behind the Curtain")
    • No clones on the show Lost.
  • Is Jin's new curly hair a side-effect of getting blown off the freighter?
    • He was "right on that fringe between heavy electromagnetism and no electromagnetism, and that only happened one other time on the show, which is when Jack lost his body hair."
  • Why did Hurley lose his ability to swim in episode "316"?
    • "He disappeared off an airplane and suddenly found himself fully clothed inside a lagoon, trying to hold onto a guitar case." He was just panicking.
  • What did Kate do with Aaron? Did she killed him? Did she gave him to his grandma?
  • Why Jack just go along with Kate's insistence that he not ask her what happened to Aaron?
    • No direct answer here.
  • Any ideas to honor Pierre Chang, like a scavenger hunt at the University of Michigan that ends at his former office or something?
    • "You can just talk to the people at the University of Michigan and see if he deserves an honorary degree for his studies of electromagnetism."
  • Is the Sawyer four-toed statue theory correct?
    • The theory goes: Sawyer gets something caught in his foot in "The Lie" and ends up having his toe amputated; then he heroically saves the island's original inhabitants, and they, as grateful people as they are, create a giant statue of his foot.
    • Sawyer will not be having his toe amputated anytime soon.
  • If Damon and Carlton were to marry, which one of you would change your last name?
    • They would probably hyphenate.
  • Was Jack able to enjoy the Red Sox 2007 World Series win?
    • No actual answer, but Carlton is a huge Red Sox fan, and Damon is a huge Yankees fan.

Running gags

  • Presu me...
  • The Lost Motion Picture
  • Carlton been blown off a freighter.
