Lost bigwig Damon Lindelof answers some questions
Okay, here are the highlights from the interview:
1. The twist at the end of the episode was planned all along (which, if you're a Lost skeptic, you might be disinclined to believe.
2. The show is "shooting mostly in Hawaii" next season, which makes the theories that the show is going to turn into a quest to get back to the island appear false (at least for right now).
3. The love triangle will be resolved in a definitive manner. (Hopefully soon.)
4. The decision to kill Charlie evolved organically out of the storyline they developed for Desmond following the end of Season 2. This is very interesting to me because it means that major characters are vulnerable to the whims of the writer's room rather than the pre-ordained "plan" for the show. I don't know if I'm alone here, but I'm fascinated by what's planned on this show and what isn't. I hope that when this is all said and done, Lindelof and Abrams release the show bible they originally wrote. That's an instant purchase for me.
