Daniel Dae Kim interview
- The Korean translations aren't always exact. Sometimes some slight changes are made to make sure the dialogue still has a conversational quality.
- Daniel speculates that the season finale will "culminate with some kind of physical confrontation."
- One day, the director played a prank on Sam Anderson (who plays Bernard).
Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse
"Three Minutes" rehash
"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1" prehash
- It's "a pretty good bet" we will see Yurtville again.
- The title of the episode comes from Jack's speech in "White Rabbit."
- Desmond will return. (They hint that the boat is Desmond's and that the flashback will be Desmond's.)
- The Challah is their code name for the last scene.
- Montand was a homage to Wages of Fear.
- Damon actually appeared in the "?" episode. When Locke reaches to turn the dial to turn on the lights, that was Damon's hand in the shot.
- Damon and Carlton say that the Hanso Foundation is a real organization that they chose to reference in the show (like The Da Vinci Code) and that they have subsequently received some legal letters and phone calls from Hugh McIntyre. They also mention that the Hanso Foundation has started a "counteracting PR campaign," placing some ads into newspapers disavowing Bad Twin.
- Before shooting at the Old Xerox building, they "did a whole ritual to purge the place of ghosts," as seven people were killed there in 1999. The building contained the set for the caves back in Season 1.
- The issue of the Richard Malkin's authenticity is addressed. Cuse offers a potential explaination that Malkin could've been paid money to act like Claire's child was special. Lindelof alludes that the scene was shot with a much more "clear" answer to Malkin's motivations, but the producers decided to change it in editing to leave it open to debate.
