Running Length: 26:22

Executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse share exclusive clues and preview upcoming episode "The 23rd Psalm." Also, composer Michael Giacchino talks about the behind-the-scenes scoring of Lost.

Michael Giacchino interview

  • He wanted the the music to be uncomfortable and also comforting.
  • He doesn't like to read the scripts. He waits until he gets the tapes to watch the episode.
  • He writes for each scene before watching the next one so that the music has a "reactive feel."
  • Many characters have their own theme or motif. For example, Locke has a couple of themes: the "I'm the tough guy" theme and his "life struggle" theme (used in the wheelchair reveal scene).
  • It takes about two days to write and orchestrate an episode, then a third day to record it.

Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse

  • They explain why there are so many reruns this season.
  • There will be a clip show, "Lost: Revelation," prior to the next batch of episodes.

"The 23rd Psalm" prehash

  • Eko flashback.
  • The Monster will be back. Eko will encounter it.
  • There will be a "DVR moment".

Fan questions

  • Is there any significance to the music besides that composed by Michael Giacchino?
    • Damon and Carlton explain why they chose the Cass Elliott song.
    • They say to keep a look out for Geronimo Jackson in a future episode. They say they are a very obscure band who pressed only one album in the mid to late 70's.
  • Why do we see no birds on the island and yet we still hear them?
    • It's difficult to use birds, though we did see a bird in the Season 1 finale.
    • Carlton does his Hurley Bird impression.
  • When you created the character of John Locke, did you draw some of his philosophies from the British philosopher John Locke?
    • Yes, many of the names on the show that were taken from philosophers were chosen carefully.
  • Damon and Carlton admit defeat:
Question: "Why did you waste four weeks of trying to open the hatch in the first season and Boone dies in the process and we come to find out that there's a back door, like, twenty feet away that really isn't hidden, and if you say that that door can only be opened from the inside too, then I would say that it would've been easier to open that door than the actual hatch."
Answer: "You know what, you're right. Busted!"

Running gags

  • Carlton does a monster truck announcer style voice: "Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday"
