Lost show runners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are here to take your fan questions and, apparently, give out relevant prizes, and it'll all be live-blogged here. Click in...
Q's and A's are paraphrased. This will be updated frequently, so check back often. Vids of key moments coming soon.
Q: When the hatch imploded and the sky turned purple—did the Island move then?
A: No. But something happened. Prize: Oceanic water bottle.
Q: What is the fate of Jin and Locke?
A: Jin will still be on the show in some form. You've not seen the last of either of those characters. Prize: Jin panda bear.
Q: Best episode and best season, in your opinion?
Cuse: "The Constant" is my favorite episode, and season one.
Lindelof: "Exodus" and the raft launch before the show disintegrated into utter despair. I also like season four. Prize: Apollo bar and Apollo bar T-shirt.
Q: What's up with the reflection in the season four promos where the city was in the reflection in the water?
A: That was all about the Oceanic Six getting off the Island. Prize: Heroes DVD.
Q: Will there be a Rousseau flashback?
Cuse: We will see Rousseau's story, to use the word "flashback" might be disingenious.
Lindelof: We're steering away from the flashes. Prize: I Am Lost luggage tags.
Q: What's up with the actors' strike?
A: We're supposed to start in three weeks, at least until further notice changes that plan. Prize: Photo of Nikki & Paolo.
Q: Any special guests this year?
A: No actors. Sorry. Prize: Actor-signed DVD box set.
Q: What happened to Vincent?
A: What about what happened the Island and Sawyer and Juliet? Vincent's okay and will appear in season five. Safe to say: Vincent's gonna make it to the end. Prize: Little polar bear.
Q: Are Jack and Kate your show's one true pariring?
Cuse: Personally I like those two, professionally I'm going to take the Fifth. Prize: Jack action figure.
Ah, we've been had again. MATTHEW FOX is so totally here. Photos coming soon!
Q: Will Kate ever see Sawyer again?
Lindelof: Not if Jack has anything to say about it.
Cuse: Yes. Kate will see Sawyer again. Prize: Signed poster.
Q: What happened to nonspeaking "beachies" who were ferried over to the blowed-up boat from the season four finale?
A: They dead. Faraday is probably gonna be okay. Prize: Authentic Faraday tie.
Lindelof Q to Matthew Fox: Do you know the meat-socks/redshirts, i.e. those who died on the boat?
A: Yep. They're always there and very professional.
Q: Is there a limit to how far the flashes can go back and forth in time?
Lindelof: We're going to tell stories in a new and exciting way. This year, when season five starts, you're not going to know when and where you are.
Cuse: There will be storytelling both on and off the Island and in different periods of time.
Lindelof: Guy who makes wooshing sound will remain employed. Prize: Hanso Foundation hat.
Q: Just between me and you, how does this show end?
A: It ends well, we hope.
Q: Can I have some Jin?
Lindelof: The alcohol or the character?
Prize: Dharma beer.
Q: How old is Richard Alpert and does he have six toes?
A: Not tellin'. We will see Richard Alpert barefoot in the very near future and that's pun-intended: the very near future. Prize: "I asked a Richard Alpert question and all I got was this lousy T-shirt" T-shirt.
Lindelof Q to Matthew Fox: How old do you think Richard Alpert is?
A: 125 years old.
Q: Regarding Locke's pseudonym of Jeremy Bentham, and one of his big things was the panopticon, are the people on the Island people being watched and by who?
A: Good question. [Interrupted by new Martin Candle video drama. That video? Coming soon, right here!]
