Guys, can you believe that it’s been 10 years since the good people of Lost came into our living rooms? 10 years since they confused the shit out of us with polar bears, others and smoke monsters? What a magical 10 years it’s been.
Some of the cast and crew of the hit show got together last night for a Lost panel at this year’s PaleyFest. Ian Somerhalder, Maggie Grace, Josh Holloway, creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and more were all there, and they had plenty to say.
First things first, the passengers were not dead the whole time.
Actually, that rumors started because of something very innocent. Cuse explained:
“At the end of the series finale, [an ABC exec] thought it would be good to have a buffer between when you have the end of the show and when they cut to say, a Clorox commercial. We didn’t have a lot of extra footage lying around, but we had footage of the plane wreckage on the beach. We thought, let’s put those shots at the end of the show and it will be a little buffer and lull. And when people saw the footage of the plane with no survivors, it exacerbated the problem.”
Also, there was an answer to that outrigger scene, but they decided not to explain it. Maybe one day they’ll explain everything, but until that day comes, groups of people will continue to watch Lost and be very lost.
The cast seemed overjoyed to be together again, especially that Ian. Maybe it’s cause he got to wear colorful pants. Launch the gallery to check out all the photos from last night’s event. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a bunch of Lost season to go watch right now.
