Great interview with both Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse about the final season and what the future may hold. There are no real spoilers in the interview so don’t worry too much about that. Neither producer is likely to spill anything crucial as they won’t even be releasing any teaser footage prior to the Feb 2nd premiere of the final season.
The Season 6 ‘group photo’ has been set up in a parody of the ‘The Last Supper’. There were two versions released, one with the characters in poses mimicking the original (below), and a second (link below first image) with all the characters just looking towards the camera (not as interesting but still cool).
If you’re curious about what clues may (or may not) be hidden in the way the image has been constructed then you should definitely have a read through this post on docarzt.com. Its a pretty comprehensive write-up comparing the Lost version to the famous painting, it covers everything from the placement and position of certain characters to what they are wearing, who they are looking at, the props placed around or near them. There are also some comparisons to similar ‘Last Supper’-themed promo photos used for other TV shows in the past. After all this is Lost, and as we seen in the past they rerely produce something like this without there being some sort of hidden meaning.

Here it is in all its glory, see click it to check out the massive version.
I’m still searching everywhere I can think of in search of a good, clear version of the poster that was shown at Comic Con, but as yet I’ve had no luck. However, I did find this fan-created gem hiding in Flickr, very nice mix of the posters from seasons past.
Has anyone else noticed the similarities between the “LOST – The Final Season” poster (still searching for a decent copy) and the cover of The Beatles’ album Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band? For your reference, the front, and the back. Ok, ok so its a stretch, but hear me out.
Comparing the poster and the font cover of the album, you have the living characters surrounded by numerous deceased characters in the poster, and the Beatles surrounded by numerous deceased personalities. But when you look at the back cover of the album, you’ll see that Paul McCartney is facing away from you, just like Locke/Fake-Locke is in the poster. The image of Paul on the Beatles album fueled the conspiracy that he was in fact dead, despite that not really being the case (as far as we know…), so is the backward facing Locke image trying to tell us something similar… I’ll let you decide.

Not too much longer left to wait until the LOST panel at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, I wonder what surprises Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse will have for us? There has been talk that they want to use their last appearance to give back to the fans, one such thing is they held a contest for fans to come up with a theme song for LOST. That could be ‘interesting’ but what we all really want it some info about the sixth and final season.
Its likely they’ll have a ‘special guest’ with them, last year it was Matthew Fox, the year before it was Harold Perrineau. Rumours have been circulating that it could even be Dominic Monaghan, that would be cool, we all miss Charlie, but I personally don’t think its likely. But then again we don’t really know what the 6th season is going to be about, remember that appears that they’ve just detonated a nuclear bomb on the island.
In the first couple of day of Comic Con a few Lost related things have popped up on the abc website. The first was the ‘Lost University’ site which I linked to here a couple of days back. It appears that it could be part of a new ARG to fill in the months until season 6, but no-one seems overly sure just yet. Lostpedia has compiled all the info off the site in one easy to read page, so I won’t bother duplicating it all here, but you can find out more about Lost University here.
Now another video has popped up, and it looks like its the first in a series of five videos to be released over the coming months. Titled ‘Mysteries of the Universe’, its been compiled to look like a 1970’s conspiracy documentary about secret societies. This first video doesn’t give too much away (you can watch it above), but any drip fed Lost info is a good thing. One thing to keep in mind though is that even if the content is ‘cool and interesting’ it doesn’t necessarily mean than the info is canon.
Hopefully we get teased with something cool at the last-ever Lost panel at SDCC.
Originally planned at 16 hours when the deal for season 4, 5 and 6 was announced, it was then upped to 17 to make up for one of the episodes we missed out on because of the writers strike, and now we’ve got a whole 18 hours of LOST for the final season. However, its still only really 16 episodes, just that BOTH the premiere and the finale will double episodes. Plus its only a couple of weeks until Comic Con, what surprises do they have in store for us there…
And a very short one at that. Bring it on. Click here to check it out.
