Comic-Con 2008 Lost panel = instaboner

I love Comic-Con. It’s the first point in the year where the notoriously secretive Lost show runners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse break their ‘radio silence’ about the up-coming new season. Thankfully, this year is no different.

Among the usual trickle of comforting information coming from the Q&A session (Rousseau! Vincent! Daniel! Alpert’s feet!) they showed an absolutely stonking staged video, similar to last year’s Orchid Orientation video out-takes. Once again it features the quite, quite wonderful ‘Marvin Candle’ but this time it’s something FAR more interesting than some out-takes and raises some lovely, tantalising questions about DHARMA and TIME. Once again, you can see the whole panel, including the video, here.


About this entry


All I can say is thank the gods Rousseau will be back. I believe they ‘killed’ her at the time because the actress didn’t want to/couldn’t come back for the rest of the season after the writers strike. Saying that, we may only see the younger version of her when her story is finally told.

People have been saying that it was Daniel Faraday filming ‘Marvin Candle’. If so, that means he was somehow around 30 years ago. Time travel is becoming more and more important. As long as it doesn’t go the way of Heroes I don’t mind. They still haven’t explained why Faraday was crying when he was watching the flight 815 ‘wreckage’ being found on the TV. Crucial character, methinks…

Yeah, Rousseau being back is some excellent news. I guess I always knew she would, as L&C have been saying we’d get her story for ages now. I guess now she’s dead it’s going to be even more interesting how they’re going to deal with it.

I do love that Faraday theory. The version I heard has him arriving on the Island (the other occupants drowned) 30 years into the past, where he then finds Candle and DHARMA and warns them about the future. It certainly sounds plausible, as we’ve been told many times that if you arrive on the island on the wrong bearing you’re going to have temporal issues.

Jesus Christ, roll on February.
