Thanks to b3rt4 for the heads up.
Another exciting episode of ABC’s Lost has come and gone, so it’s time to be “Getting Lost” with the latest entry in our new video series. What’s on tap this “time”?
• Michael Emerson tells us if, in fact, Ben will have to “make do” with not the entire Oceanic 6.
• Emerson also updates us on the status of Ben’s vendetta against Widmore.
• Who will have the most emotional reunion when the Oceanic HowEverMany are reunited with the left-behinders? I took that question to executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.
• And lastly, if Jin survived the freighter explosion, might Michael have, also? I caught up with Harold Perrineau on the set of his new ABC series, The Unusuals, to get his take.
All told, lotsa fun stuff, so hit the Play button already!
Thanks to CuInAnotherLifeBrother for the Summary/Transcript
It looks like Ben’s not going to get everyone back to the island, is that really how its going to be?
ME: It’s trying to like keeping cats in a bag, every time he gets one in, another one climbs out, so he’s got quite a few substantial road blocks left between now and the fulfilment of that mission. Will he take what he can get? yeah, I think the mission has to be made, compromises will be made along the way.(chuckle).
Has he forgotten about his revenge mission against Charles Widmore?
ME: Ben has not forgotten what Charles Widmore has done to him and I think he is going to try to take care of that business at the same time as taking care of the larger mission.
Who’s going to have the most emotional reunion?
CC: That’s kind of a trap, a tricky question isn’t it?(DL: yeah) I would say that its very emotional though, the whole thing is very emotional, the whole season is is, we’re trying to always do this balance between the romantic quadrangle, the personal character stories and our mythology and we feel there is elements for both. There’s time travel for the hardcore mythology fans, Sawyer has his shirt off for those that don’t care about that.
DL: I think your trying to trap us into saying that all of members of the Oceanic 6 do get back to the island and that’s not entirely the case.
Jin’s alive. So is Michael?
HP: No, Michael did not survive, I don’t think Michael survived. He could have, I mean like listen, its like Rousseau he’s run into right? and she’s like a child.(chuckle) so as far as I know Michael did not survive and if he shows up again he’ll probably have a stunt double and it would be really weird.
Are you on a standby list that Darlton will need you before the series ends?
HP: I’m sorry what? That’s my answer, that’s my full answer.(chuckle)
