We all know that Darlton have pledged to "not talk about the show once it's over". Well, I just read an interesting interview [1] with them in the Washington Post from back in May just before the Finale, and it sounds like we may still get another podcast or interview about the show. Here's what was said:

Carlton Cuse: We want people to have a chance to digest, discuss, debate and interpret the events of the finale. And we think there’s going to be plenty of things for people to discuss and debate, just like every year. We don’t want to be out there saying, no no no, you must think this or you must think that. We don’t want to sort of spoil the process, which is to let people process the finale and arrive at their own conclusions about it.

We’re not disappearing off the face of the earth. We’re not not ever speaking to the press again. But we do want to be respectful of that process and allow people time to kind of experience the end of the show without hearing from us.

Jen Chaney: Have you thought about what the statute of limitations on radio silence will be?

Carlton Cuse: No.

Damon Lindelof: The normal period has always been that we emerge at Comic-Con for our panel because that seems like it’s the perfect thing where you could do it. But this year we really hadn’t talked about it, and my guess is there will be a variety of ways to do it. One of the things that’s appealing to us is, we’ll do a podcast. Or we’ll do a story for some magazine or something like that. What we don’t want to do is be in the Senate hearing. We don’t want to put ourselves in a position where the only question that can be asked is: further explain. Dot dot dot. We have to say that the show speaks for itself without being obnoxious about it.

It’s not some sort of high falutin’, artsy, you don’t deserve to know the answers. We just feel like the thing that makes “Lost” “Lost” is the interpretive element of it. And the fact that some members of the audience are expecting the interpretive element to go away in the finale of the series -- it would be like having the final episode of “The Sopranos” not have Tony in it.

The interpretive element of "Lost," the fact that you immediately need as soon as the episode is over to seek out a community of people to express your own thoughts about it, understand what they thought about it and form an opinion, that’s the bread and butter of the show. The more we talk about what our intention was, the more we take it away from the audience. And we have no interest in doing that ever.
