I was unaware of this. Has then been okayed by SysOps? Are you sure it's Damon and Carlton? -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  23:38, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

  • I contacted both Marik and Nick about this. And of course I'm sure it's them since the interview is by phone. - TheAma1 23:39, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
  • No problemo mi amigo. ;) - TheAma1 00:28, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Hope we can get most, if all, of these questions answered =) --Mistertrouble189 02:36, 13 March 2009 (UTC)


  • Depending on how I record this, etc. I might. ;) - TheAma1 15:22, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
  • I'd also appreciate a transcript/write out since I am hard-of-hearing and subtitles when watching TV/movies and a transcript for this would be very helpful for me and many others I'm sure.--Mistertrouble189 02:36, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Of course, this may even be the first thing out. ;) - TheAma1 12:18, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Useless questions

  • Can we please avoid any questions that are likely to be answered before the interview is even completed? "ie: Will Amy feature more prominently in season 5, will we see Dr. Chang again in season 5, what will happen to the survivors of Flight 316, etc...).  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  02:16, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Why would I ask such questions? ;) - TheAma1 01:05, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Mostly I meant if people could stop posting them on here.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  04:25, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Are you still taking questions? When is the interview?

- TheAma1 23:39, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Is Jacob really Captain Nemo? AlanCanon 14:54, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Can you confirm whose centrics "Before You Left" and "Namaste" were, if any?
  • After seeing the fan made maps I'm wondering how accurately have you planned the locations on the island? Is it difficult to keep the distance between places the same, such as when you need to get a character quickly to somewhere thats already been represented as being far away, and by the end of the show will you be able to give us an accurate map of the island with locations on it? -- TheHunt
  • Will we ever see why walt is so important???
  • So when lost is over how do the both of you want the show to be remembered as??
  • In lost we have seen the island trying to stop people like locke trying to get into the hatch or charlie to die before turning off the " flashing light " so that not penny's boat could not get to the island, but in many ways it feels while watching the show that the island knows all and that if those things did not happen like locke getting in the hatch and etc.. that most of the losties wouldnt be where they need to be so does the island really want to stop them from doing these things or do they all need to go thought it to be tested?
  • Why didn't Widmore go on flight 316 to get back to the island?
  • Will we ever learn about the kidnapped tailies, who they are, why they were kidnapped and why are they ok being with the Others? (look at Cindy and kids, theyre happy). Also will we learn about room 23?--Mistertrouble189 04:42, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Is the Co-pilot of Flight 316's name Jack Ross accorinding to the casting call?
  • Will we ever learn why the Pallet Drop occurred, Who sent the Pallet Drop and Who is still manufacturing DHARMA branded Food in 2004?
  • If Locke was a proxy for Christian Shephard and he's alive now, is it possible for CS to be alive on the island as well? Dancing Penguin Smile_spin.gif (Talk!) 15:59, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Will the whereabouts of Rose, Bernard, Craig, Vincent and the other remaining Oceanic Survivors be revealed soon? --PapaSloth 14:19, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Will there be any more Lost mobisodes?
  • Does Caesar work for Widmore?
    • Comment: You will probably can an answer along the lines of "you will learn more about Caesar as this season continues to unfold." I don't think they would reveal something that big in this interview.--Bioject 13:04, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
  • will you ever show the incident room in a FlashBack?
  • Actor Lance Reddick has done an amazing job portraying Matthew Abaddon on the show. The events in the episode "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham" leave a lot of questions unanswered about his character. Is it possible that we will see more of Abaddon (in one way or another) in the future? Raydogg57 00:46, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Lost is well known for having a very large cast of recurring characters. Can we ever hope to see Robert Patrick's character Hibbs return to the show? (The audience must know how he lost his finger!)  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  05:09, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
  • This is the second season in which Nestor Carbonell hasn't been promoted to a series regular, is there a possibility that he might become a regular in season 6? --Orhan94 07:10, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Did you know that you will be introducing time travel when you started writing the show or did you think of it later on as the show already started? --Orhan94 07:10, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment:This has already been answered in another interview. Yes time travel has been a story element from the beginning.--Bioject 13:38, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
      • Comment--except for that time they denied the show had any time travel, clones, or nanobots. :-) Just wait, the clones and nanobots are coming...  Robert K S   tell me  06:59, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
  • What is the best, and the worst, part about working on Lost? --Blueeagleislander 08:44, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Do you read/use Lostpedia? Blueeagleislander 08:46, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Or any other fansites?  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  18:09, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Specifically, do you ever find yourself referring to Lostpedia to verify canon and continuity? --Sfoskett 02:01, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
    • If so, do you use it in a similar manner that you used Gregg Nations "Lost Bible" after the first season? --Uncertainty 17:49, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • After the episode "Life & Death of Jeremy Bentham" it seems like it puts Walt's story to the end. So is his story really over or we'll see him again? Dimonium 12:04, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Will the origin of mural in Swan be revealed? Dimonium 12:14, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Desmond made the mural. Does this answer this or were you referring to some of the symbolism on the mural itself?
      • Hm, okay, sorry me, I haven't watched Secrets Of The Hatch. Still i'm interested in how could he made picture with elements of prophecy if he got this precog ability only after the hatch was imploded? But there were no accent on mural in main series so it seems to me that there'll be no more details about it's origin. Dimonium 15:53, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
  • There are some similarities between Miles and Eko, Ana-Lucia and Ilana. Are these new characters in fact the replacements of these ones who was listed off from the show due to personal issues? Dimonium 12:15, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
  • How do you come up with the many literary references found on the show? Can you give us a hint of a future book that will be seen on the show? -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  14:52, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Please confirm that the ancient statue we saw in LaFleur is (or isn't) the four-toed statue. --   Steff    talk    contribs    email   15:17, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment: They answered this question in the Enhanced re-airing. ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 14:53, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
      • I know.. but the enhanced episodes are not considered canon. --   Steff    talk    contribs    email   17:43, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
        • I believe this has already been addressed in an interview and/or podcast. If not, I think it's pretty obvious that it is the four-toed statue or why bother showing it? What other statue could it possibly be?
          • I'm on your side. However, when "LaFleur" aired, there were many fans who argued that it's not the same statue. So, I'm asking this question in order to get a quick yes/no official confirmation. --   Steff    talk    contribs    email   14:20, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Lost has been, and continues to be, an amazing success, one that will be reflected upon by its fans long after the final LOST closing title card. With season 5 winding down, and knowing season 6 will be the end of the road for Lost, what's next for "Darlton"? Are there any future plans for you two to collaborate on another television show in the future? ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 16:06, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Also, can you confirm that Eko's last name is Tunde or that Tom's last name is Friendly? And what about Paulo's last name? --Orhan94 18:47, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Yeah I go with that, I wanna know Paulo and Lbby's last names. LAnder 02:25, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Have you ever regretted killing a main character, or wanted to keep anyone on the show? LAnder 02:25, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Will Lost have a conclusive ending, or will we be left wondering what (will/has/is going to) happened after the final scene? Random490 22:27, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment: I am quite sure this has been addressed. Lost will have a definitive ending, but they did say that some things may be left unanswered. This is when they gave the Star Wars force midocloreans analogy where sometimes it's better not to explain something because nothing they could write can compete with the human imagination and if they tried explaining it, it would just be stupid and lame just like trying to explain the force scientifically is stupid and lame.

break 1

  • With so many redshirts of Oceanic 815 dead from the flaming arrow attack and the number of living survivors narrowing, will there be any hope for these poor minor characters for survival and safety?--Mistertrouble189 02:34, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • What is your alltime favorite episode so far? Season? Main character? Mystery?--Mistertrouble189 02:34, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment:Damon and Carlton have pretty much answered this many times before. If I remember correctly, in one podcast either Damon or Carlton mentioned they thought The Constant was one of their favorite episodes. Might want to check out the podcasts.--Bioject 13:38, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Do you consider "Enhanced Episodes" to be as canon as what we see on the show? Do you write/approve of the notes being broadcasted?--Mistertrouble189 02:55, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment:In the latest podcast the producers say that whilst their office assistants check the enhanced episode notes to make sure they are broadly correct, they sometimes miss things and for this reason the enchanced episode captions are not to be regarded as canon. They use the example of the Sante Rose hospital being called an 'institute' in the cpations rather than an 'institution', which is the correct terminology.--Werthead 18:53, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • The events portrayed in "The Life And Death Of Jeremy Bentham" don't fit into the reactions we saw early in Season 4, i.e. Locke never stresses the importance of only using the name Bentham, and a few other discrepancies. Will we see more of Locke's time off the island as Bentham, and will these questions be addressed?
  • With a show like Lost it is probably impossible to tie up every loose end in the story. How do you decide which loose ends to tie up and which to leave without conclusions?
  • In the recent episode, "LaFleur" we saw in the beginning what appeared to be the four toed statue when it was still whole, is this indeed the four toed statue and is it Egyptian as many fans have speculated?-- bpc908 03:45, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Please. Where is Annie? We need to know. -- Sasha
  • Are Ben and Widmore each other's constant? Is that why Ben cannot kill him? -- Sasha
  • Did you know Charlotte was going to die when you introduced her character in early season 4? I had high hopes of learning more about the island's history and ancient cultures through Charlotte as a cultural anthropologist. At this moment it seems her character had no major point other than being Faraday's love interest. Also, will we see Rebecca Mader again? Tranquility 11:32, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Is it possible that Daniel's theory that, "what happened, happened" could be proven wrong, being that it denies free will? Will free will become important to the story?--Benmanben 17:00, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Many of my friends, family, and myself feel that the relationship between Kate/Jack and Kate/Sawyer has become stagnate and frustrating due to Kate's constant man hopping. As a result, now I wonder when the triangle will just conclude rather than who she ends up with. Are viewers supposed to feel this way or is Kate intended for the relationship junkies? Or has the triangle technically been broken due to Sawyer's relationship with Juliet and DharmaBlocking? Additionally, Mr. Eko was punished for his past/present actions, yet the island seems to have forgotten to give Kate her comeuppance for murder and being promiscuous. Perhaps its just failed in its attempts? --Bioject 12:29, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • It's impossible to avoid continuity errors completely. Assuming you have looked at lostpedia before, what is your take on the bloopers and continuity errors discovered in each episode and do you have a personal favorite? --Bioject 12:52, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • What are the chances of having a fun fan contest where the winner gets to fly to Hawaii and visit the set of Lost for a day and meet some of the production crew and actors? Or if that's too expensive, one lucky fan gets to awkwardly sit and eat lunch with you guys!!! P.S. You've got to make your decision soon before Lost concludes!!!--Bioject 12:55, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • When will we know the identity of Adam and Eve? Also, what's your favorite Lost parody (if any)? Zak Klaas 12:58, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment:Damon and Carlton have said quote "the two corpses in the cave are the decaying proof that we had a plan from the beginning." Probably not their exact words, but close enough.--Bioject 13:38, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Got any scoop on Richard? What can we expect from him in season 6?
  • Are there any plans for a spin-off, prequel, ... etc or are these banned? Xxl filip 14:05, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment:While you may want to ask this, I will bet you $1000 dollars this is highly unlikely. I also believe this has been addressed once in either the podcast or interview.--Bioject 13:38, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • I think that it was already confirmed that you will answer every unsolved question (except the rope bridge and Rousseau's accent). But will every question be answered in the show or will something like the Lost Experience take that duty? Asian Dawn 15:29, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Will we see more of Richard in his hippie guise?--Puddin Tame 15:03, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • You once said that everything on the show could be explained by "science fact", rather than science fiction. Does this still apply in season 5, now that time travel and reincarnation are a part of the show? --Username815 16:48, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • When writing stories that are based in the past or the future that reference things we already know or have seen, there must be a lot of time spent checking and confirming things like dates and interactions to ensure that there are no contradictions. Do you have your own "Lostpedia" type book or document or timeline drawn out that allows for quick reference? Do you ever look to the online sites to confirm no contradictions have occured or to clear them up in the future once the online community finds them? Is there a chance at the end of the show, some of this documentation will be published to help answer some questions you just didn't get to with the story telling but know the answers to anyway?--Keenstein 17:28, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • During one of the time flashes, we saw an ancient building, which reminds a temple, and seems to be closely connected to the Monster. Will we learn more about this temple's nature and its connection to the Monster in the future episodes? LOST-Jerry Smith|talk|contributions 17:26, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • PLEASE tell us: why did Ben tell Locke that pushing the button in the Swan did nothing? --michael_is_NOT_in_the_coffin 20:07, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • When are we going to find out why Libby was in the mental institution with Hurley and how much she knew about the island and everyone on the 815 prior to giving Desmond her husaband's boat? This has been hanging since season 2... --MrFunions 20:13, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
    • In a recent interview, you said that you felt Libby's story had been told. This seems to contradict previous interviews where you said that there was one major piece of Libby's story left to tell about "how she got from point A to point B" and that the idea that Libby may have been DHARMA is "not barking up the wrong tree". What has changed between those two interviews?  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  01:57, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Many characters in LOST have "loaded" names (John Locke, Desmond Hume, Richard Alpert). When creating these characters, do you have a name in mind and then fill it the details, or create a character then choose a name to fit? -- Crazy Bearded Jack 23:49, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Will we learn how the island moves, weather its in space or time, the US army found it easily enough.

When Ben moved the island, did it go to another place on earth as well as a different place in time?--Nzoomed 00:52, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

  • About the Dharma Booth Video shown at Comic-Con about Dr. Pierre Chang, was the off-screen voice Daniel Faraday? Also, did Dr. Chang mention "LaFleur" in the video? Thanks. dposse 01:58, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Will we see the Orientation films for the rest of the DHARMA stations full length in the series? This

could also include the sri lanka video, which not all the fans probably know of, if Horace screened it to Sawyer, it would be quite fitting.--Nzoomed 04:20, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

  • I know that many people did not like Nikki and Paulo but was there more to their story? Did you plan for them to play a significant part on the show? Were they part of the Tampa Job? Also, the Expose show popping up from time to time? What about that? And, is their story finished, including Expose? Thanks. --Soccerguy786 00:55, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Will the Last Episode ever of LOST be sad or Dramatic?
  • We know that the pilot episode has an involvement with the outcome of the show, but does majority of episodes have an outcome on the end of the show? even if it be totally inconspicuous and once we know we look back and slap our heads and say of course! summary does most of the flashbacks, connections etc. have an underlining role that we will be aware of at the end of the show? and if so how many Red Herrings are there?--thommo 05:56, 14 March 2009 (UTC) And please do not answer any questions that are obvious spoilers...
  • In the episode "The Little Prince", when the french team rescues Jin, what does Brennan say just before Danielle tells him to shut up ? ("Au nom de dieu, Brennan ! Ta gueule !") (the Lospedia transcript says "Le vent va passer par ici" but really, it doesn't mean anything and what he says doesn't even sound like that) (I'm probably the only person interested in this question but I'd really like to know. What Brennan says is impossible to make out) Mebon 13:04, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Now that the Skipping Survivors are done skipping, can they change the past, or do the rules still apply? Cgmv123 19:27, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment:I think the answer is already pretty clear. Everything the survivors are doing in the 1970s always happened. For example: If Sawyer were to carve his name into a tree in the 1970s, then in the present time when the people crash on the island, if they happened to come across that tree, they would see the carving even though in the show, you've never seen who carved it yet. Make sense?--Bioject 13:38, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
    • I meant that could Sawyer kill young Ben and totally change the outcome of the show, I think that he probably choose not to, but could he? Cgmv123 22:18, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment: If Sawyer tried to kill Ben, something would get in the way. Either he would not die from the bullet, the gun would misfire, Sawyer would choose not to kill Ben, or something else that basically prevents this from happening would occur.
  • In series 1, you developed a set of extraordinary characters with fascinating and compelling backstories. In series 2, you developed a huge mythology which engrossed millions of people into the Lost world. In series 3, pieces started falling into place and characters started moving towards their destiny. In series 4, the mythology began to unfold and we began to understand exactly how the characters related to the mystery of the island. In series 5 you've become wrapped up in a time travel story line and started throwing out your most interest concepts, (Walt, the special child who seemed destined to provide a perfect represenation of the mystery and power of the island. The numbers, representing the archaic history of the island and the space/time properties of the island's geography and geology. Even Aaron has literally vanished from the show without a trace. Lost needed 8 series, not 6. Are you worried you underestimated the time that you would need to complete the show? If any more story threads start dissapearing, the show is serious trouble. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bort cuse (talkcontribs) .
  • Will we learn the identity of the economist in a future episode? Also, is there any chance we will know what Hurley's dad did during his 17 year absence?
  • Please tell me your joking about libby!!!1 you could resolve her story line thourough mobisodes or even just a few mins of dialouge between Widmore and Locke or ben its so EASY!!! please say you will answer libby story indirectly or directly!!!!!!!


  • In episode 2 of season 5 "The Lie", many of the survivors got killed in the flaming arrow attack. Will we learn how many died and how many survived (excluding Sawyer, Juliet,etc.) what they have been doing on the island during the course of hte three years? And will we see Rose and Bernard again? Thanks a million! --Shortguy457 17:01, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Are you aware of The Dinasaur Head on Lost?--Dalarro 02:35, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • I’m doing a three hundred hour project on Lost for my senior year in high school. The project focuses on the literary aspects of the show, namely theme. I’ve noticed that the show employs several literary techniques found in classic literature, such as foreshadowing, frame tale, soliloquy, parallelism, etc. Have you ever thought of Lost (or television in general) as a new form of classic literature? What do you think of the idea?--Libby M.
  • As a brazilian Lost Fan, and the burocrat of the Portuguese Lostpedia, I would like to know if we're gonna see something from Brazil, and if there's any chances we see Rodrigo Santoro on Lost again? You've shown USA, Korea, Tunisia, England, Nigeria, Dominican Republic, Finland, Australia, Germany and other countries, but never Brazil. And remembering that Lost has a big number of brazilians fans, are there any chances we see Brazil on the show? Oh, and one more thing, All the main characters have their surnames, but Paulo doesn't, so, can you tell us his surname? (I know this isn't important, but I'm from Brazil). Thank you for this show, you rock guys. --Caio_wgm 03:30, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Hello dudes....I'm Yan, a sysop at Portuguese Lostpedia, and I also get a question. Why the Monster, I mean, the security system, doesn't attack the people that look directly to it? And, is Alvar Hanso really alive? If so....why he and Richard doesn't look that old? Thank're the best --B.L. 04:04, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Mrs. Hawking called opportunities to get on the island "windows." Would that describe the island? Would you call it a window or a door? -- aohora
  • Will it be explained by which way a Nigerian aircraft could end up on the Island? --LOST-Hunter61 07:43, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
    • I think this is pretty obvious. Both the Nigerian and Ajira aircraft arrived on the island via similar means. They were just flying along and happened to fly over an event window. The transition onto the island probably caused the Nigerian plane to crash.--Bioject 12:38, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Did the Smoke Monster try and pull Locke down that hole back in season 1 in an attempt to prevent him from blowing up the hatch?--Bioject 13:17, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • What would happen if you inhaled some of Mr. Smokey's smokey essence?--Bioject 13:18, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Are any dead main characters (I'm talking about Boone, Shannon, Ana-Lucia, Libby, Eko, Nikki, Paulo, Charlie, Michael, and Charlotte) going to return to life like John did?
    • Are you going to pick up any plot-lines that were left behind after these characters died?--DeCarta
  • Are you going to show us any more of the characters pasts? I'm very curious about Sawyer, Faraday, Libby, and... well, EVERYBODY!!!--DeCarta
  • Is there any chance of the Lost universe continuing past the series?--DeCarta
  • PLEASE confirm if EKO's last name is Tunde. Also please ask what LIBBY and PAULO's last names are. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 15:48, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • LOST seems very much to be like and reference a Disney movie called THE KID, which is about a man who sees a toy plane on his doorstep which belonged to him when he was a kid. He ends up meeting himself at age 8. They travel back in time where he finds out he had problems with his dad that he has to fix. Are these similarities purposeful?--Benmanben 17:00, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Are we, the fans, asking the right questions? What should we ask you at this point in the series? dposse 18:41, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • You said in the Season 3 Blu-ray that their is a second spectrum to the Blast Door Map, will we ever see this second spectrum, and is the Blast Door Map going to be revisited before the series ends? --LOST-The Cartographer 21:09, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment: This has been revisited in Via Domus with the second spectrum of the Blast Door Map we saw. It was just an excuse to update the blast door map with info invented after Season 2 (like the Barracks, etc.). - TheAma1 22:11, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • How many more DHARMA stations are there, and will we see all of the them before show's end? --LOST-The Cartographer 21:09, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Could we e-mail you a list of questions that our fans have that we don't have time to have answered here, to which you could freely choose ignore?
  • Or even better, get a Lostpedia account where we can drop questions off on your talk page and answer them for all to see! -JamesyWamesy 23:33, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • What will be the name of the last episode of Season Five? Have you wrote it? Have you a nickname for it as on the previous finales? -- Lucas Benicá | Talk | Email | 22:23, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment:According to the latest TV Guide, the script for the final episode is barely finished and it has yet to be filmed. The nickname for the episode will be something different this time. On, fans will get to submit their ideas for a nickname and the best one will be chosen and used.--Bioject 05:03, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
  • You guys have on your hands the greatest thing that ever happened on the world. Are you worried about the reception of the Lost end? If you could get back in time, what would you change on Lost? -- Lucas Benicá | Talk | Email | 22:31, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment:This has technically already been answered. On another interview, they said that they wouldn't change Lost even if they could go back in time and do it over knowing everything they would do in the show because they felt their mistakes like Jack's tattoo made them do other things better. They've also touched base on the Lost end, but I can't remember where.--Bioject 01:31, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Is the flashforward order on the Season 4 DVD extra canon? Because it causes conflict with certain quotes in the show such as the length of Jack's flight and the TV news broadcast of Hurley's escape. -JamesyWamesy 23:33, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Hey, Damon, hey Carlton. I hope you answer this little yet vital question: I am really worried about the mysteries that seem not to be solved in the future, because they seem to have no more relevance to the plot. So I ask you to tell us if you have forgotten about them, or they will be eventually explained. Questions like why the Others kidnapped Walt and what they did to him, why did Ben tell Locke not to push the button, what will happen with Zach and Emma (not seen since season 3) and the kidnapped Tailies, who is the Economist, etc etc... Despite the current plot, we can't forget some mysteries from the past. I hope neither you. Thank you very much, guys! --   Calick    talk    contributions    email   03:08, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Comment:They may have already addressed these questions already. They have said in the past that some plot lines that weren't considered important, became important because of audience interest. One noteworthy failed attempt was Jack's tattoo. I believe they have already stated that most of the plotlines will be answered. As for why Ben told Locke not to push the button, the writers have said before that Ben probably didn't know what the purpose of the Swan hatch was.--Bioject 09:49, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
      • That doesn't exclude the fact that some crucial mysteries must be answered. If they said that most of the plotlines will, I'd like to know if the oldest ones, like Walt's "powers" and his time with the Others, are amongst those plotlines. I'd feel deceived if they just forget about that. I think my question is important because there are some things that can be ignored, like Libby's story, but not the ones I mentioned. --   Calick    talk    contributions    email   17:22, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Here is a short and simple question: What will happen after Season 6? Will there be any ARGs, extra clips, etc? Also, are there any projects outside of Lost you are currently working on? -- #1LostFan  talk  contribs  Lost Wiki  04:40, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Is there a possibility that you will make a second season of the Mobisodes, maybe filling background stories of redshirts (such as Neil "Frogurt" and Artz), supporting characters (such as Omar from the Kahana, Danny Pickett, Bea, Mikhail and Nathan) and even minor characters (such as Rupa Krishnavani and Hendricks). --Orhan94 10:31, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
  • After Desmond turned the key, he started to have flashes. In one of them he spoke with Charlie. Then is started to rain and Charlie left. When Charlie remembers it, Desmond does not meet him. Why?
  • Is there any chance Lost could ever be made into a novel after the show is over. I think would be a cool way to retell the story of Lost in a different medium and possibly a different narrative structure. --ckc.ryan
  • For future season finales/premiere, and especially the series finale. Is there any chance that it might broadcast live in movie theaters or some other venues? I think it would be amazing to watch the finale with many Lost fans in your city/area. Any chance that you can ask ABC about this? I'm not asking for a Lost movie, but rather other way we can experience important episodes with the Lost community. --ckc.ryan
    • Comment: It's a good question but, in the meantime, consider joining or starting a LOST Meetup group.--Puddin Tame 15:14, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
  • John Locke has 2 similar falls from a height onto his back: (i) pushed out of a window by Anthony Cooper, (ii) falls after being shot by Ethan (while travelling back in time.) Are these 2 falls supposed to have happened at the same moment in time?
    • Comment: This is possible but highly doubtful. Locke was thrown out of the 8-story window sometime in 2000. Ethan shoots Locke at the beechcraft sometime between 2001 and 2002. It's possible, but highly unlikely.--Bioject 13:03, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
  • When first approaching the Beechcraft in S1, Locke's leg stops working. Is this related to his being shot there by Ethan in S5 or a coincidence?
  • Will we be receiving a definitive answer on who Jacob is by the end of the series? Is it anyone we've already seen, or is he a new character?
  • Will the DeGroots be actual characters on the show, or be left as "background" elements.
  • If you look at any of the fan forums at all, you've likely seen the references and parallels drawn to various mythologies. Is this reading too much into the show? Are you going to address blatantly mythological themes or do you mainly use myth and religion as a way to come up with names?
  • I notice that stations 2-6 of DHARMA have been visited. Will Station 1 be shown, or is that the Lamp-Post station?
  • Is the identity of Horace and Amy's child significant, or are people attaching too much importance to it?


  • If I remember correctly, you were worried that the introduction of time travel to Lost might be seen as jumping the shark. Without giving too much away, is there anything coming up in season 5 or 6 that makes you worried what viewers reactions to it will be?
  • Do you ever feel sad that you can't experience Lost in the same way that we can?
  • Do you have a rule that once some part of the mythology is introduced, you must stick to your original idea? Or could you change your mind? (For example, you have an idea who/what Jacob is when you introduce him, but then later swap it for a better idea)
  • There was a folk figure in Victorian England, a career criminal and multiple prison escapee named Jack Shepard. Is this a coincidence?
  • Amy. Is there any chance of her becoming a main character? Reiko Ayleswoth rocks!!
    • Comment:They probably wouldn't answer this if was true. High potential for dodging.--Bioject 05:03, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
  • The Lost fan community is known for thoroughly dissecting (and over-dissecting) elements in the show. Have there been any Easter eggs, hints, or allusions that fans haven't picked up on or whose meaning went unnoticed? -- Graft   talk   contributions  22:01, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Why don't the survivors interrogate (or at least ask) Juliet who the Others, and the hostiles, are?
    • Comment: While it's still up to you to ask this question, I'm pretty sure their response would be that she really doesn't know that much and was primarily kept in the dark about most things. She was only on the island for three years. On the other hand, they may just give the same reason why most characters on the show don't talk to each other about important stuff. The most obvious reason is that if Juliet did know a lot of information and was fully debriefed, perhaps half the mysteries of the show would be answered way too soon. Even Daniel and Charlotte seem to know a bunch of important information, yet the survivors haven't interrogated them. It's basically for the same reasons I've given above.--Bioject 12:57, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
  • (Probably already listed somewhere in the above, but maybe not. As the follow-up to "Do you ever read/use Lostpedia?"--) Have you ever been tempted to make a correction to some inaccuracy or assumption you saw written on Lostpedia that only you could possibly know was mistaken?  Robert K S   tell me  06:55, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
  • On previous podcasts you have answered some people's questions by stating you didn't realize people thought that specific thing was a mystery that needed to be answered. What criteria do you use to determine what constitutes an important LOST mystery that requires answering? Have you read the online compilations of unexplained mysteries, and do you think most of them will be answered by the end of the show? And are we ever going to find out what happened to Cindy and the kids?
  • During the title sequence of each show, as LOST drifts to the front of the screen, a noise grows in the background that sounds like the tones that used to be heard on a disconnected or incorrectly dialed phone line. Aside from the implicit symbolism of being left out of touch, is there a specific significance to this noise? Or is it merely coincidental?[1] -Amandakay1 21:02, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

    • Specifically, in a video featured at your Comic Con panel in 2007 (and later included on the season 3 dvd) you gave a list of dead Others which included Isabel and Aldo. However nothing on the show would indicate that they had died, so what happened?  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  23:04, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
  • According to Ben, Charlotte was born July 2, 1979, but Daniel sees a young Charlotte in 1973 living in the Barracks. Was Ben's information incorrect or is this a mistake?--Bioject 13:24, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Some questions I collected on the German Lostpedia Blog:
  • Who built the tiny bridge, we have seen in season 1?
  • Will the Dharma Initiative rise again?
  • Are we going to see the end of the DHARMA Initiative again and again like in a time-loop?
  • Does Widmore mean the war with Ben, when he says, that there's war coming or does he mean another power, which is a so great danger for the Island, that it is Widmore's and Ben's enemy as well?
  • Does the adult Ben remember meeting Jack, Kate, Hurley, Sawyer, Juliet, Daniel, Miles and Jin when he was a child in the Dharma-Initative?
  • When are we going to know who Jacob is? Will this secret be revealed before the end of season six?
  • Will we ever see Flashbacks or at least centric Episodes for Christian, Charles, Richard, Daniel or Jacob?
  • Did Ben know, that Locke was going to live again, when he killed him? Was Locke's death a necessary sacrifice, which Widmore wanted to prevent, when he send Locke to his former friends?
  • Is statue in "LaFleur" the same like in the season-two-finale?
    • Comment: This question has been asked three times now in this wiki.--Bioject 01:28, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Was Locke ever really meant to lead?
  • (When) will we see rose and bernard again?
  • Will we see Isaac from Uluru (Wayne Pygram) again in Season 5?
  • Could the bricked up "Door"- DHARMA Station might be an entrance to the Frozen Donkey Wheel?
  • What happened to the people in the front section of Oceanic Flight 815? When we saw the cockpit, there were actually 4 bodies. Is it possible that we gonna see some lost guys in the future?
  • What was the point of the return of the Oceanic 6? They were supposed to stop the time flashes, but Locke was able to stop them before they got back on the island.
    • If the Oceanic 6 never returned to the island, then they would have never gone back in time to the 70s and done whatever they need to do there for the sake of time continuity. Remember everything that has happened in the past always happened. The oceanic six always end up in the past at some point. Also you should sign your questions.--Bioject 01:28, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • How could Forgurt die at the beginning of season 5, 50 years before he even got to the island, and because Daniel said one can't change future or past?
  • Will we ever see an official map of the island?
  • You said the history of Libby is already told. Does it mean we will never see any details of her connections to the other Losties again - specially the part of Santa Rosa? If there should be nothing more of her after her death in season 2, why did she appear to Michael and not just Ana-Lucia?
  • Who did Elois Hawking mean when she said "then God help us all"? Everyone on the island? Or off the island? Or her old Generation from 1954? Or the whole mankind?
  • Has or could anybody have the whole control of the island? Even Jacob seems not to have this power because he needed someone to turn the wheel.
  • Will we ever see somebody meeting his own past- or future-self?
  • Where is Vincent?
  • How did Richard know when to search Locke at the Beachcraft when not even Locke could have known when he was in time in this timejump.
  • to whom does Harper in "the other woman" refer to, when she tells Juliet that she looks to Ben exactly like "HER"? Who is HER? Ben's mother? An Ex-girlfriend/wife of Ben? One who ot maybe killed by Widmore, which initiated the quarrel between those two? Or did she even meant Juliet, without being aware of that?
  • Why didn't ("the old") Danielle remember Jin, when she saw him later in 2004?
  • What happened to Cindy, Zack and Emma? Did they also flash in time?
  • Will Ben and Charles ever face or even fight each other in a upcoming episode?
  • Did Jacob make the rules in the fight between Charles and Ben?
  • Is Richard Alpert Egyptian?
  • Comment: Seems a reasonable question. The Statue appears to be Egyptian in origin, hieroglyphics are seen repeatedly and Richard Alpert appears to be immortal, so could very well be Egyptian in origin going back many centuries/millennia. That said, I severely doubt we'll get this question answered in an interview.--Werthead 15:11, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment: If this is based off his apparent agelessness, fine, but if has to do with the presumption that he's wearing eyeliner, they've already attributed that to Nestor Carbonell's "natural beauty". Amandakay1 21:51, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Will we ever see Richard Malkin and/or his daughter Charlotte again ?
  • Is Danielle Rousseaus story already told completely ? Or will we perhaps see how the Others kidnaped her daughter for example ?
  • Will we see Annie, Kelvin Inman and/or the DeGroots in Season 5 ?
  • Many couples in Lost are destroyed by killing one of them (Sayd+Shannon, Sayid+Nadia,Hurley and Libby, Charlie and Claire, perhaps Desmond and Penelope....? Which couples, if any on the whole, have the best chances to survive till the end of the series ?
  • How many writers work for "Lost"? And how is the writing process? Do the writers pitch a plot and the showrunners say yes or no? Are there writers responsible for one character? And how does all come together? Ends the writing process when production on set starts or does it go on?
  • We know that people need a 'constant' to survive all the consequences of (conciousness) time-travelling. As Richard Alpert doesn't age and therefore exists in every time zone that people can possibly reach, is it possible that he works as a kind of 'universal constant' who is available for everybody in trouble?
  • If he doesn't age, is he ever going to die?
  • Are Charlie (who talked to Hugo in "Something Nice Back Home") and Claire ("There's no Place like Home") really referring to Aaron by saying "You're not supposed to raise him" and "Don't you bring him back!" or could it more likely be John, for he has been "brought back" to the Island and "raised" from the dead.
--DerAndre (talk) 21:06, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Will there ever be a Vincent centric episode? The closest we've come so far was the mobisode where Vincent meets Christian Shepard and that was badass!--Bioject 01:41, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Apparently Matthew Fox knows the ending or final scene of Lost. Why only him? Is it because he's the main character or is it something very important he needs to know for the development of Jack Shepard?--Bioject 01:41, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • When Daniel describes Desmond as one to whom "the rules don't apply to", are you referring to the rules of time or the rules of the island? Also, is Desmond 'special' because he turned the failsafe key or because he was born/destined to be? Elaboration of special in this context would be appreciated.
  • In the episode 'Greatest Hits', the Charlie centric episode how he goes through his greatest moments in life. In the one how he first swims with his dad, there is a minor audible in the background that mentions Desmond. My question is now that charlie has passed away can we please get a confirmation of this connection going to be explained, or is it even a big connection do we need to worry about it at all? just a simple yes / no if this will be explained.--thommo 06:20, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • In the episode "Namaste" a women can faintly be seen standing a short distance away from Sun during her conversation with Christian Shepard. Was that a member of the production crew or intentional?--Bioject 11:59, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Do members of the Dharma Initiative ever go on vacation? From what we've seen through the current episodes and flashbacks, members of the Dharma initiative seem to live on the island for a VERY long time. Are Dharma Initiative members just super diehard about their Workmen jobs or is there another reason? Perhaps something happens that prevents Dharma members from leaving or like Ben, Dharma creates the impression that people can leave, but they never actually intend to keep their promise?--Bioject 12:05, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
    • And was the choice of 1977 as the year for the DHARMA story influenced by Star Wars' premiere?--Werthead 15:07, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Will we see the Black Rock again?--Werthead 15:11, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Hi Damon & Carlton. Apparently, after the airing of the episode "316", a number of people in the online fandom decided to stop watching LOST because they felt that the part with Ben & Jack in the church was preaching Christianity (ie. the part where Ben tells Jack the story of Thomas). Personally, I find this a bit ridiculous because LOST has always had a spirituality to it that has covered aspects of many different belief systems and I don't feel it is preaching any particular one of them. What is your reaction to this and how do you respond to these criticisms? -- Damien, Australia (Athiest)
  • Comment: I hadn't heard about that. That's kinda really dumb that people would stop watching Lost because of that. Do you have a link? I'm curious to read more.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  23:59, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Hi Damon and Carlton! Ya'll rock :) So I was thinking the other night and I thought of something. We know that Jacob's cabin is always moving, but that there is one place it can always be found (because of Horace's map). So since we just learned that the Island is always moving, is there one place that the Island can always be found too? After all, it had to have originated from somewhere! Also, we know that the DHARMA was able to go to and from the Island thanks to their sub and their sonar beacon. But since the Island is always moving, how would their sub know where to listen for the beacon? I mean, the Island could have moved 5000 miles since they left it! Thanks! meggie ~ Talk & contribs 01:28, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Do you ever get frustrated with the ignant fools that cannot see lost for it's brilliance in it's entirety? Do you defend Lost when people obviously do not understand and or give it a chance? What do you say?--thommo 05:18, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
  • The context of the shocker of the Chullah has been bugging me for 3 seasons now: Will the history about how Penny knew about the island, how she knew Desmond whereabouts on it, how she knew to locate the island via an electromagnetic discharge, why her men were searching for it in the arctic (could this relate to why Mikhail thought Bonnie & Greta were in Canada?), how she was able to track the island considering it's always moving, how much she knew about her father's relationship to the island, and whether she or her father knew that they both had boats simultaneously headed for the island? Datadies 15:07, 20 March 2009 (UTC) Datadies
  • I understand that if you say Libby's story is finished, then it if finished. But if that is truly the case, can you simply just TELL us rabid Lost fans, via a statement in this interview or a podcast, why she was in the mental institution? Datadies 15:07, 20 March 2009 (UTC) Datadies
  • Also, if you don't have time to tell us about the Hurley Bird, which is admittedly, probably the least mysterious unanswered question on the show, then can you just TELL us how a bird would come to know Hurley's name and be able to say it when recognizing him? Datadies 15:22, 20 March 2009 (UTC) Datadies
  • I was also wondering if you could tell us about at what point in the next 25 hours of Lost will we be finding out more of the context to the rivalry between Widmore & Ben? Also, is it possible that Widmore & Ben are simply two rival factions within the same side of some sort of war, or that there is in fact more than just two factions then in it? Datadies 15:22, 20 March 2009 (UTC) Datadies
  • When will the explanation for the whispers be addressed? Datadies 15:22, 20 March 2009 (UTC) Datadies
  • Will the mysterious ways the Others seem to be able to kidnap/kill people be addressed? For example, how did Ethan manage to kill Steve (or was it Scott) out of no where? How did Tom know that Walt was on the raft? How did the Others manage to kidnap Cindy without anyone even seeing it happen? And how did the Others kidnap Cooper? Was it a literal "box", or a figurative one? Datadies 15:22, 20 March 2009 (UTC) Datadies
  • Have any of the Losties every considered how it is that they all had connections before coming to the island? And if so, how much have they talked about it with others? Christian meeting Sawyer & Ana-Lucia in Australia, Claire & Jack being siblings, Cooper being the real Sawyer, Desmond happening to crash on the same island his long lost love's father is fighting over, Desmond & Jack meeting before the island, Sun's father working with Widmore? These seem to all be connections that at least one of the Losties is aware of, yet I'm wondering if they've every taken the chance to consider the implications of these mysterious connections? Datadies 15:22, 20 March 2009 (UTC) Datadies
  • Now that we've seen that the discharges are associated with teleportation and time travel (ie: when Ben and Locke turn the wheel), can we assume that that's how Locke and Eko escaped the implosion of the Swan?  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  19:47, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Will there be a new ARG between season 5 and season 6?  Nico  22:19, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
  • I know it's past the deadline, but on the off-chance: We've just seen the conclusion of Battlestar Galactica. This was a show that was driven by various mysteries, seemingly set up from the beginning, much like Lost. Many people were sorely disappointed by the lack of answers provided by the Battlestar Galactica finale. How do you see Lost ending with respect to the way BSG ended? Will you provide more grounded answers, or will there be a similar number of elements chalked up to 'mythology' (as we know some will). Risk one 23:09, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Yeah, that BSG finale could have been so much better. It's clear those writers weren't sure where they were taking the mythology, which they've admitted to in interviews. I know you guys haven't been sure at times (seasons 2, 3) where the plot was going, because you didn't know how much time you had to tell your story, but I'm hoping you know where the mythology is going. I don't want Jacob to end up being an angel. I know there's been complaints about comments you guys have made suggesting how not all of our questions will be answered, such as Libby & the Hurley bird. Also, are we ever gonna get back to Room 23, Charlotte finding the polar bear at the island exit, Walt's powers, why Mikhail would think Greta and (Bonnie?) would be stationed in Russia of all places, supply drop, Cindy's motivation for joining the Others, Penny's men in the arctic, etc. (I can care less about the rope bridge.) A part of me seems to think you guys have forgotten about these things. Then again, based upon the cable Sayid found, the runway, and the French dude's arm (which I had actually forgotten about), it seems as if there is an answer for every question. So, if there are answers for every question, can't you guys take the time to answer all of them? Can't the final season be 26 episodes, or 20, or 18, or however many are needed to answer these questions? Or is there simply not enough plot to go with the answers? Datadies 04:20, 25 March 2009 (UTC) Datadies
  • What do you guys think about the theory (which isn't mine, but I don't think you guys have addressed it yet) that Hurley being able to see Jacob is interrelated to him being able to see Charlie, Eko, Ana-Lucia, etc.? Datadies 04:20, 25 March 2009 (UTC) Datadies
  • Are Locke, Ben, & Hurley the only ones who can see Jacob, or would others individuals who stumbled through his territory (since I guess the cabin moves) possibly be able to find him? And will it be addressed why Hurley was able to find the cabin without looking for it, yet when Locke went looking for it, he couldn't? Datadies 04:20, 25 March 2009 (UTC) Datadies
  • Once the series is finished, is there any chance that Lost might be created into a book? Not a book about the Tv show, but the way the show was suppose to be originally told, without the distractions of the writer's strike, or actor not being able to make it to the set, etc. Just all the problems that come with having a television show. Many people would love this as more people like to read books and not watch them. Just my opinion!--shortguy457 1:09, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for all your questions, I'll keep you posted on the phone interview. - TheAma1 10:20, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

    • When is the phone interview supposed to be held?--Bioject 12:39, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Suggestion for the format

Forgive me if this an inappropriate place for this (as I don't want to question anyone's authority), but I had an idea for the interview. Since there seem to be a good deal of questions about the show itself and its mysteries perhaps one part of the interview could be purely "Yes/No" type questions that Darlton can speed through (similar to the ones asked in the podcasts, but only those with short answers so the interview doesn't end up being just one giant podcast) and the other part relate their relationship to fandom and Lostpedia with more in depth questions that can illicit well thought out answers. Any thoughts on the format? --Uncertainty 22:37, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

  • As I've said, I'm going to try if I have time to get yes/no type answers to some long-standing more or less small questions that I don't see them doding. - TheAma1 22:51, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

I highly suggest sticking to yes or no questions, and try to avoid any speculative questions, like "what if you had done this instead?" Also, they really seem to like answering questions like, "Will we ever find out. . ." and they often drop hints in their answers once they get warmed up. Ask them about the smoke monster--since he grabbed that guy, they'll be sure to answer it! Good luck! aohora

  • There are some really good questions up there, which haven't been asked before. Good luck! --LOST-Hunter61 07:45, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Based on time and other factors of how you are going to interview, will you trim questions or change them in order to save time and be able to ask more questions... How long is the interview scheduled anyway? --thommo 05:23, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Just an idea

After the question sumission period is over, when you go through all the questions, you oughta make a subsection on this page listing questions that have already been answered (and their answers) to save interview time. It'd be good for us to know. Maybe even a finalized list of questions going to be asked. --Mistertrouble189 04:51, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Good idea. I've been going through the questions myself and looking for questions that either have been answered, dodged, or addressed in some way already through interviews and/or podcasts.--Bioject 09:33, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
