Season 5 Update – Jin Alive Or Dead!?

Ever since the Season 4 finale, many have been speculating whether Jin is alive or dead!?

Of course we have had several spoilers even before the Season 4 finale aired that Jin fans should not worry, because he will be seen on the island again in the future. However, we have never had anyone confirm dead or alive.

Even Damon and Carlton confirmed at Comic Con that Jin will return in some “form” stopping short of saying he was alive or dead. So once again it seems like Jin may be joining the growing list of “ghost” characters on the island.

Well here are some details from Kristin saying we will not find out what happens to Jin until episodes 4 and 5 and that his body will be found floating in the water on some of the freighter debris.

What do you all think!?

Lynn: I’m dying for some solid Lost scoop! Specifically about the Left Behinds, is there anything can you give me?!

They’re going to make us sweat out the fate of Jin. We won’t see him at all for the first three episodes, and it’s not until episodes four and five that we’ll really understand what happened to him when the freighter exploded. I am actually slightly concerned that he’s dead and just hanging out on the Island in tangible-ghost form à la Jack’s dad. And if that’s the case, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, I am coming for you.

Rebecca in Ipswich, Mass: I’m dying for Lost!

Me, too, and hey, this just in (literally as I was hitting the button to publish this): I’m now hearing from sources that Jin will be found Leo DiCaprio-in-Titanic style, floating on a door. Alive or dead? We shall see! Place your bets below. (And personally, I’m grateful at the moment that the Island’s waters don’t seem too frigid.)

More Jin News And Hurley In Jail!?

Hey All,
Yesterday we posted some news that we would not find out about Jin’s fate until Episode 5×04. Well today, we get another little detail from EW’s Ausiello that the On-Island Losties will discover the fate of Jin all together in the fourth episode.

Additionally Ausiello confirmed that Hurley will be seen in a jail scene.

Here is the post:

Question: I don’t know if I can wait until January or February for Lost. Got any scoop on it? — Nick

Ausiello: Sawyer, Juliet, Daniel, Miles, Charlotte, and ***** will learn Jin’s fate at the precise moment we do: In episode 4. In other news, ask yourself this question: Why was Jorge Garcia shooting a scene in jail last week?

Ryan has posted a few photos of the filming now Filming Update - Jack, Sayid, and BenRyan has posted a few photos of the filming now Filming Update - Jack, Sayid, and Ben

You can see the rest of the photos here.

Here is the latest set report from Ryan!! It is a continuation of the off-island Losties, but today’s filming had Jack, Sayid and Ben filming scenes together!!

Here you go:

“LOST” rolled up to Hawaii Medical Center West, a.k.a. St. Francis, in Kalihi (just up the street from Hoffs Drawler and Simon’s Butcher Shop) today. Parked in front, Jack’s Ford Bronco, a blue cargo van with Canton-Rainier Carpet Cleaning emblazoned on the side, and a Los Angeles Paramedics ambulance. Matthew Fox, Naveen Andrews, and Michael Emerson are on the scene. Jack is on the phone as action is called. Someone, something is somewhere else, and they need to get there “right now.” Jack jumps into his truck, but Sayid and Ben hang back a moment to have an intense conversation. (To adjust for a dip in the grass, Naveen Andrews stands on some sandbags to meet Michael Emerson eye to eye.) Eventually, Sayid takes the wheel of the blue van, and Ben climbs into the passenger seat. They drive off.

Jorge Garcia Reveals New Details For Season 5

Hey All,
Kristin at E! Online spoke with LOST’s Jorge Garcia during the Emmy Awards last week and revealed some nice new details including that he will talk to more dead people.

Here is her post:

1) Who is Hurley hanging with these days? “It’s safe to say I’m working with people who are off the Island—I can even say I’m working with Michael Emerson, Ben. He does most of the talking—and he didn’t thank me once for that candy bar.” Ooh, that stinker!

2) What about Ben’s mission to get the gang back to the Island? “I think Hurley is leaning toward regret of having gone off the Island, but I don’t think he’s at the point where he wants to go back, just yet. But it does seem that the Island is pulling us back, some way or another.”

3) What about Hurley and the glorious dead—are they still chatting? Said Jorge, “Yep, and it seems like it doesn’t even faze Hurley any more.”

4) Last but not least, will the Oceanic Six ever become friends again? “Don’t know. Don’t know at all.” Sob.

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.

Dharma Uluru Station Confirmed

Last week there was a spoiler about several Dharma Stations being located across the world Dharma Uluru Station ConfirmedHey All,
Last week there was a spoiler about several Dharma Stations being located across the world. Many of you have speculated about the potential locations of these World stations including locations like Portland, Tunisia, and Australia.

Well today, as many suspected, E! Online’s Kristin has confirmed that Ayers Rock aka Uluru in Australia is where one of the Dharma Stations is located.

So what other locations will also have Dharma Stations!?

More About Mrs. Hawking And Abaddon Returns

Earlier today EW’s Ausiello reported that Ms. Hawking will be returning this season and has a connection with another Lostie not named Desmond. Of course many of you have speculated at the potential options. Well he has now come back to say Hawking’s connection is that she is “related” to this Lostie. My guess is Charlotte or maybe Faraday!?

Ausiello also posted some casting isu which we already have posted and confirmed that Lance Reddick was filming an episode this past week (most likely Episode 5×06).

Here is his post:

Question: Your Lost spoiler tease in this week’s Ausiello TV is driving me nuts. Can you please give us a hint as to the nature of the connection between Fionnula Flanagan’s creepy ring-seller and “another major character” who is not Desmond? — Vanessa

Ausiello: They’re r*l*t**.

Question: The lack of Lost scoop is killing me. — Ahmed

Ausiello: Help has arrived! My Lost mole reports that Lance Reddick (a.k.a. corporate recruiter Matthew Abaddon as well as Fringe’s Phillip Broyles) was just spotted in Hawaii shooting what I assume is episode 5.6. Meanwhile, the show is casting the likely recurring role of Hal, a white dude in his 70s who can still fight the establishment and win. Team Darlton is also on the prowl for an actor to play Mike, a thirtysomething scientist who’s on the brink of something big. An authentic Czech accent is required. (Of course, when isn’t it?)
