Lost audio podcast recap: March 20, 2007

by Erin Martell, posted Mar 21st 2007 4:02PM

Emilie de RavinThe newest Lost audio podcast is available on ABC's website, and Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are finally back as hosts. The executive producers discussed past episodes "Par Avion" and "Enter 77," and teased upcoming episodes "The Man From Tallahassee" and "Exposé." Cast member Emilie de Ravin also discussed her work on the "Par Avion" episode. Here are the highlights:

  • Emilie de Ravin felt that "Par Avion" was the most emotionally difficult of all her past Lost performances. She is also sure that Jack and Claire will eventually discover that they are half-siblings.
  • Lindelof and Cuse have not been available for previous podcasts because they were busy writing the final four episodes for this season.
  • Mikhail's statements about the Purge and the Hostiles' war with DHARMA should be believed; he was not trying to mislead Sayid and Kate. Lindelof pointed out that Kelvin referred to the Others as the Hostiles in "Live Together, Die Alone."
  • Viewers can expect more information about DHARMA, even though it appears that all of its members are gone. More details about the Purge will also be revealed.
  • Tonight's episode, "The Man From Tallahassee," will reveal what happened between Jack and the Others, and why Jack was so chummy with Tom in "Par Avion."
  • Although "The Man From Tallahassee" is a Locke episode, Locke is not the "man" in question.
  • The beach ping pong match came about because there is a ping pong table in the Lost writers' room. There will be at least one more episode featuring the ping pong table.
  • Lindelof and Cuse believe that Locke is acting in his own interests now. It can be assumed that Locke accidentally made the hatch implode, but his actions in the Flame may have been intentional.
  • The producers disagree on whether Mikhail is really dead. Cuse believes that the sonic fence did not kill Mikhail instantly because it wasn't turned on as high as it could have been.
  • Jacob is probably the "Him" that the Others have mentioned in earlier episodes.
  • The Nikki and Paulo episode, "Exposé," will cover the Others' knowledge of the island. The Others may have had limited awareness of the Swan station and the button-pushing before Henry was brought there.

Actress Elizabeth Mitchell will be interviewed in next week's podcast. "The Man From Tallahassee" airs tonight at 10pm ET.

I've come to believe that a TV series, i.e., any ongoing series, is a work in progress. A movie or a TV miniseries is completed before it is shown to the public. The producer, the director and/or the writers have time to make changes before anyone sees the first scene. An ongoing series by contrast is incomplete when it is first shown. Usually, only a handful of episodes are completed before a season begins. The most I expect is that a series is outlined and the details are filled in as the episodes are filmed.

Cuse says Mikhail was not killed.

Mikhail Bakunin should be taken off the Lost Death Pool, he is UNCONFIRMED at this point.


In regards to the statement itself, this does not instill a lot of confidence in those that believe this show is actually mapped out and the producers aren't just writing it on the fly.

This causes those of us that are on the mapped out side of the fence to take another blow in the planned vs unplanned debate that's been raging since about about episode 2 of the first season, when we all realized this wasn't just about a plane crash.

Is it possible to both love AND hate a show at the same time? Kind of the same way I feel about myself after watching every episode.

*sigh* Is it 9pm yet?

Big Ted, I agree.

Statements by the showrunners that were once provocative are now met with, "Eh, yeah, ok. Whatever." I'll need a big ol' buttload of answers to existing mysteries before I put any faith in these guys again, or consider Lost "appointment TV" again.

"The producers disagree on whether Mikhail is really dead. Cuse believes that the sonic fence did not kill Mikhail instantly because it wasn't turned on as high as it could have been."

I think "Lost" has been on an upswing in the last few episodes, but comments like this lead me to believe that these guys still don't understand why viewers have been so frustrated with the show. Every time they talk, it seems as if they're trying to leave themselves giant plot loopholes so they don't have to account for what's gone on before. But when actions never have consequences, it makes for bad drama. And if you do this too much, people stop caring what happens in the first place.

At this point, it wouldn't surprise me too much if Mr. Eko turned up in the shower one day and declared that everything that happened this year was all a dream. (Whoops -- didn't mean to give away the ending there.)
