NYCC ’20: The creators of LOST finally come clean

It’s been a decade since Lost wrapped up its six-season, twisty-turny, time-traveling narrative. The iconic–and controversial–series varied the face of video, from how the narrative undid to even eliminating the need for a fully-realized theme song. The survivors( is again, they weren’t dead the whole time) of Oceanic 815 and the mythology of small island developing are unforgettable slice of video biography. During the New York Comic Con 2020 Metaverse board hosted by Josh Horowitz, inventors Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof fielded questions wandering from severe and involved to downright silly.

The biggest question that retained sounding up, both in jest and seriously, was the plothole of the outrigger occurrence in Season 5. The designers “ve never” divulged who was chasing our Losties, leading to a inventory of love thoughts and supposition. Apparently, they did decide who the inexplicable outrigger crew was but they chose not to share, likening the riddle to the finale of The Sopranos, where they desired the ending but people hated it.

“[ Writer/ farmer] David Chase refuses to talk about the ending of The Sopranos, ” Lindelof explained. “It felt like since our finale was not about not telling, in fact, we feel like we “ve told you everything”, and so the idea that there were unanswered questions about Lost, I continue to challenge any love to ask us issues and questions and we’ll answer it or we’ll provide you with a roadmap to get the answer that the register supported, like what was the deal with Walt, or what did the numbers mean, or please explain the polar assumes or why did Jack have to fly that kite with Bai Ling. We will answer all of the questions. Except for one. Which is the outrigger. And that we will take to our mausoleums. We wrote the representation that answered the question and other parties outside our writers’ room have examined the panorama and been sworn to secrecy. So should Carlton and I die…those individuals can come forward and say,’ now that they are dead I will tell you who was on the outrigger.’”

One fan asked if Lost were made today how would it differ from 2004 when it launched. Both Lindelof and Cuse agreed that the picture worked because of its time. The world-wide, information and communication technologies, and the current events surrounding those six years were important, and transporting it to the hot mess that is 2020 would drastically convert the feeling and reasons of the specific characteristics. A enormous example is how the idea of quarantine and Desmond’s fear of leaving the hatch would be a much different feel in a announce COVID world.

When asked about a sequel, spinoff, or prequel to the series, both makes commit their favor but in another writer’s handwritings. Feeling as if they objective it the direction they demanded it, they believe that a new generation of writers playing in the world would be interesting.

“I think that tales can be told by anyone, ” Lindelof shared. “And anyone can take control of the floor and make it their own vision. And that would be quite exciting.”
