Lost Experience clue in recent episode

Yunjin KimAn element from ABC's alternate reality game The Lost Experience turned up in last week's episode "D.O.C." While the game officially ended in 2006, fans have continued to look for clues within the actual show. Their efforts were rewarded last Wednesday during one of Sun's flashback scenes. When Sun visited her father in his office, a logo for Paik Heavy Industries was visible.

Paik Heavy Industries was mentioned in several Lost Experience clues, but was not directly linked to Sun's father at the time. Now it's clear that the company, which has connections to the Hanso Foundation and the Widmore Corporation, is owned by Mr. Paik. The game's central character, Rachel Blake, discovered that Paik Heavy Industries built a ship for the Hanso Foundation. The Helgus Antonius is a medical/container ship that has numerous quarantine wards.

So far it seems like these connections are merely intended as fun Easter eggs for fans who took part in the interactive game. However, it's possible that more of these clues will be integrated into the show's plot. How much Lost Experience content should the writers connect to actual Lost episodes? Will these clues make a difference to viewers who did not participate in the game?

Exposing the Hanso Foundation

Lost Title SequenceABC and Lost extend their viral publicity campaign for the show with this "anti"-Hanso Foundation site that appeared about a week ago: HansoExposed.com. As show marketers continue to turn the internet into one big Easter egg hunt, I suspect the real reason for these Hanso and Dharma related sites is an effort to head off complaints next season about repeats -- they evidently intend to keep us Lost fans so preoccupied every moment of our waking lives that we don't have time for eating and sleeping, let alone actually watching the show.

This site is meant to be a campaign by a few intrepid souls attempting to get the word out on evil projects under development by Hanso. Its design is all dark and shadowy. There are blueprints, mentions of a dossier on Enzo Valenzetti, testimonials, pictures of airline tickets, all meant to add up to yet another incomplete picture of another incomprehensible mystery. After trying to make heads or tails of it without giving up any personal information, I finally surrendered my email address and got an account, permanently branding myself a sucker in the eyes of Buena Vista.

(Ryan reports from ComicCon that he's got some video to accompany this post soon. We'll update when that becomes available.)

Lost: ?

lost(S02E21) I've been waiting for this episode ever since I saw its most interesting title: a simple question mark. We all knew what it would refer to once we saw the mysterious map Locke caught a glimpse of, but it was knowing that this would be an Eko-centric episode that, to me, made it all the more interesting.

For those of you who like to over analyze the episodes on a microscopic level like we do, you may have noticed that little scene in Eko's dream where a bunch of images flashed by before he saw his brother, Yemi, sitting at the computer. Here's a list of what was shown:

Hanso Foundation's 877-HANSORG: What's it say?

hanzo foundationSo, like me you may have tried for hours to get through to the phone number shown during a fake commercial toward the end of tonight's episode of Lost. The commercial featured the Hanso Foundation, then displayed a phone number to call: 877-HANSORG. Well, I finally got though and recorded what happens if you follow the general information extension (1), though there are several others you can follow. Have a listen for yourself.

[UPDATE: The recording above has changed!]
