Filming Update – Long Beach Harbor Club

Hey All,
Once again our good friend Ryan in Hawaii has posted a new set report and it seems like a continuation of the recent filming yesterday.

Today’s report confirms that Ben along with the Oceanic 6 (minus Hurley) are all meeting at the Long Beach Harbor Club. Long Beach is one of the largest ports here in Los Angeles and it seems like maybe the O6 might be making plans to head back to the island!?

Spotted once again are the vehicles of the Losties including the blue carpet cleaning van with the Cantor-Rainier logo (anagram).

Ryan was guessing that the filming was still for Episode 5×04 but the key might be that Hurley was NOT a part of the whole filming.

So what do you all think is happening!? Are the Losties trying to head back to the island!? Where is Hurley!? Still in jail and would they leave him behind!?

Here is the set report and pics:

Once again our good friend Ryan in Hawaii has posted a new set report and it seems like a  Filming Update - Long Beach Harbor ClubThe Waikiki Yacht Club was transformed into the “Long Beach Harbor Club” for evening shoots last night and tonight. Cranes and production trucks were parked nearby, as well as three notable vehicles: the blue Canton-Rainier Carpet Cleaning van, Kate’s silver Volvo, and a silver Jaguar S-Class. My friend Doug, who knows cars better than I do, says it looks like the 2008 model.

A yacht club member who was fortunately an avid fan said last night’s shoot involved Evangeline Lilly, Yunjin Kim, and a young boy playing Aaron. She said she was back tonight because the roster would be even larger. In addition to Kate and Sun, Sayid (Naveen Andrews), Ben (Michael Emerson) and Jack (Matthew Fox) were due on set.

Snippets From Damon

Thanks to B3RT4 for the heads up on this interview with Damon Lindelof. Here are some snippets from the interview.

Me: At what point are you in creating the tamat episodes?
Lindelof: We’re actually writing the eighth episode right now and breaking the story for the ninth episode. We’re filming the sixth episode. The blueprint for the entire season is done, but we only write the episodes one at a time, because the actual genesis of the scene-by-scene work is the fun part. So we’re almost exactly halfway through.

There’s been so much analysis of the this year’s promotional poster. Do you have a big part in creating that?

Yeah. Everything in the design of that poster is intentional. We oversaw it — now we know the audience looks at that stuff so closely, so we don’t want there to be anything that we don’t approve, especially at this point in the game.

Why is neither Walt nor Vincent in the Season 6 promo picture? — Holly

Well, I’m not going to explain why anything is what it is, other than that everything is by design. You’ll just have to watch the tamat season and decide for yourself. It’s a little bit like, “Why is Paul McCartney holding a cigarette with his right hand when he’s a lefty on the Abbey Road cover?”

Is the ending you envisioned when you first created the show still in place? — adanzis

That’s a great question. Yes, the actual ending ending is exactly the same as we’d always planned on it being, except we didn’t know if we were going to get there after two seasons, four seasons or after six seasons, so the road to the ending has had to change significantly. But the ending itself? Whether people like it or not, that’s the ending we’ve had.

Will Walt will have any major role in the upcoming season? He was important for a while because of his “gift,” but that story has never been realized. — mrhymes01

I think a lot of people are justifiably frustrated about the Walt of it all. We said he has this special ability, and the Others obviously grabbed him and studied him for awhile, then they got freaked out by him and decided to let him go.

I think that there are certain stories on the show that feel like dangling participles based on external factors. For us, we were incredibly limited by the fact that Malcolm David Kelley was growing at an exponentially faster rate than the show was progressing. So, you know, when we showed him in Season 5 and Locke is trying to recruit members of the Oceanic Six, the only way that it worked was to see him three years older. But hopefully, why Walt was special and the role he played on the show will have a new significance when all is said and done. And I’m not sure we really need the character of Walt to explain the significance.

Will we ever get more on the backstory on Libby … or at least find out her last name? — P-D Cougar

Libby is someone we get asked about a lot, and she’s another one of those cases where it’s more of an issue of our relationship with the actor than it is our desire to tell the story. It’s our hope that Cynthia Watros will come back one more time and finish that story, but that’s up to her. We asked her last year, she wasn’t interested in doing it. Hopefully she’ll change her mind.

One actor definitely won’t be returning for the tamat season, right? Can you tell me more about that?

We did ask an actor who’s played a significant role on the show to come back and do some work on Season 6, and they said no. But I’m not going to confirm who that is. All I’ll say is that person was never a series regular.

Damon, I have a question about my second-favorite character on the show, Frank Lapidus. Ever since he appeared on the Season 6 promotional poster, there has been a lot of speculation on message boards. So, anyway, my question is: Will Frank be promoted to main character status next season, and if so, will he be getting a -centric episode? Because that would be basically the most awesome thing ever. — Bish-Fiscuit

Yeah. Lapidus is definitely a series regular this season. Jeff Fahey was just a recurring character up through last year. Now, whether or not Lapidus makes it until the end of the season is anyone’s guess, but he’s definitely one of the A-team this year.

How many people do make it to the end of the season?

You really think I’m going to answer that question? Not all of them, that’s for sure.

Latest From E!Online

Lost’s fifth-season premiere is still at least four months away, but I’ve just gotten some exclusive insight into next year’s stories.

In particular, I can now tell you why it is that the Oceanic Six must all reunite in order to get back to the Island.

Want to know why Kate (with baby Aaron), Jack, Sayid, Hurley and Sun are going to have Menang Ceme to put their differences aside and go “all for one, and one for all” this year?

Well, remember what Michael Emerson recently said about Ben’s statement that if any of them are to return to the Island, everyone who escaped has to go back too? He said, “I think [that dictate is] a scientific condition of the mechanism by which the Island operates. I don’t think it’s an esoteric or spiritual issue, I think it’s science.”

He wasn’t just talking pretty. What I’m hearing is that the reason Jack, Kate, Sayid, Sun and Hurley need to reunite is because the Oceanic Six need to fan out to a group of Dharma stations.

Even more intriguing? According to my source, these stations are not on the Island, but in other locations, and these off-Island stations are believed to be the ticket to getting back to the Island.

(Remember, the Island moved in the finale. The Island may have gone to another place…or it may have hopped into another time.)

So how does this all work? And where in the world are these stations? We’ll have to tune into what is looking like an exciting fifth season in order to see.

In the meantime, my source hints that we have seen at least one of these powerful places before. Any guesses where? Post in the comments, and check out the next chat.
