Will someone please update this site

  • When are you going to unlock the page, so that someone could update the article?? No one will be spoiled if you add the main characters for example .. Besides, it has already been aired in the US&Canada .. Suliet90 20:26, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
  • episode 6.01 has been all over the internet and im sure everyones already seen it or at least knows what happens in it. so will someone please update this site because its crazy lostipedia looks 9 months behind, I mean not even the main characters page has been updated!
    • No. Not everyone has seen it. We update the site to the US airdate, which is Feb 2nd. Any information posted about it will be considered a spoiler, and the poster will be banned. So please wait just a few days when the rest of the world catch up. We have never updated Lostpedia with information from the Sunset on the Beach premiere, just so you know.--Baker1000 12:37, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
  • I agree I always find it stupid to see lostipedia (the supposed encyclopedia of lost) to be the most behind website for lost info. there has been lots of season 6 stuff confirmed by the creators for ages now that lostipedia just refuses to acknowledge like a child with its fingers in its ears screaming im not listening to the rest of the world.--The Time-Traveling Scotsman 14:04
    • Yup.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  17:08, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
    • If you want to follow Lost somewhere else, no one is stopping you.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 17:13, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
      • I agree if you dont like it then leave, just because some people are patient enough to wait and watch the episode in good quality doesnt mean they should be punished. You people that wanna put the info on here are insane, sorry but you are. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  17:20, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
        • I wouldn't say insane, just rude, inconsiderate and impatient. Please consider that not everyone has seen it (or want to know what the producers have confirmed), and would still like to safely use this site before Feb 2nd. If the producers confirmed how the show ends, would that be a spoiler or would it be fine because they told us? I'm in the UK, so I have to watch on the internet, but a few years ago I would wait until they aired it on TV over here. It was bad enough to have to stay off the internet for 3 days to avoid spoilers, let alone 6 days, which it would be if I didn't watch online and you got your own way.--Baker1000 17:27, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
          • Contrary to popular belief, the old spoiler pages worked fine. They only took them down after a vandal started posting all over the wiki. There's absolutely nothing wrong with posting information officially released by ABC/TPTB so long as we take steps to keep it confined to a single area so that they're easy to avoid. IF the producers revealed the end of the episode, I might be inclined to change my stance based on a new precedent being set, but to assume that they're going to do that is absurd since they have a vested interest in making sure that information doesn't get out.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  17:35, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
          • Pictogram voting support The spoiler pages were in a controlled environment which was a very popular part of Lostpedia. The people who visited were always helping to keep the rest of the site clean. Instead, we now have those horrible blogs which are leaking spoilers all over the place (not to mention all spoilers presented as theories). As long as we are namecalling I would say thet the present spoiler policy is a very sorry affair. --LOST-Hunter61 18:07, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
          • I agree, the blogs are a major problem right now. I personally think they don't belong here, because people treat it like a forum. We already have a forum. It messes up the Recent Changes, making main space edits harder to see. It treats every comment as a new page, so the new pages link gets flooded. Plus, you can see the first part of every comment. IMO we should at least make it so you can't see the comments in recent changes by default. You can manually exclude that namespace already, but we don't need them in the first place.--Baker1000 18:49, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
            • I agree with Jim, and Hunter, however Baker makes good points as well. Spoiler paranoia does make it more difficult to update this site unfortunately. It's funny, the reason I ever found out about this wiki two years ago was BECAUSE of the spoiler page. It was such a blessing to have all that S4 info archived and easy to find. Much better than DarkUFO's guide. --LOST-The Cartographer 21:24, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
        • Okay well can I ask who would go into a hissy fit if someone posted things like main characters or episode title's? or would that also be considered 'insane'? I foolishly forgot that the internet is full of sociopathic weirdo's that freak out at the sight of a characters name and start calling everyone crazy and insane. Look it just bothers me that this site has one of the highest amount of lost fans on it and there isn't a single place for them to discuss spoilers, and it also bothers me that small things like season 6 main character announcements and episode titles are considered spoilers and as for Baker's comment about the producers confirming the shows end i seem to remember vincent's page stating that the producer's said he would survive to the end. --Jebus128 14:44, February 01, 2010 (UTC)
        • This is a community that has set up some rules about how it is going to govern itself. Personally, I don't see the harm in pre-posting episode titles because they rarely mean anything out of context; from the day Pierre Chang (using some alias) mentioned "The Incident", we could have posted a "probable future episode title notice" without giving anything away, but the concensus of the editors is not to do that. I know the title of 6x03. I think it's a neat title with an historical reference and doesn't give anything away, but I can live with not seeing it here until Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. If you want to talk about future stuff there are forums to do that. There even is (or was) another Lost wiki on Wikia. I don't know what their rules are. Posting spoilers makes it difficult for people who want to track changes using the recent changes or RSS to do so without seeing things they don't want to see in advance. I wish they had never enabled the blogs. You have options. If the other Lost wiki is dormant, Wikia will probably let you take it over; then you can make your own rules.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 15:04, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
          • I think confirming that an animal will survive until the end is a little different to giving away how the show ends. ;) And it was just to make a point, I know they wouldn't tell us the ending before we see it.--Baker1000 20:07, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
          • Probably keeps the SPCA at bay as well.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 20:56, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
            • Hey Jebus IF YOU DONT LIKE IT LEAVE, this is not open for disscusion. I personally do not mind main characters or episode titles because they are generally well known, but who cares go to another site, is it so hard to type the leters DarkUfo into google. No one cares if you want spoilers on this site, they will not be allowed, sorry. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  21:22, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
Jeebus, the Lostpedia Wiki is encyclopedic by nature and is updated to US broadcasts. We have very strict spoiler policies, and if you violate them you will be banned. If you wish to view or discuss spoilers, there is a section of our forum where that can be done. Everyone else, let's stop this thread. There really isn't a point to discuss things further on this page. 21:33, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

Number of episodes

  • Why is Lost season 6 only going to be 16 epsiodes long when the first 3 seasons are 24, 25 episodes long the is no reason for this to have so little episodes. --Pacific Gilly 1992 08:33, 18 May 2007 (PDT)
Season 1 - 22(24) - 2 hour pilot and finale
Season 2 - 22(23) - 2 hour finale
Season 3 - 22(23) - 2 hour finale
Season 4 - 13(14) - 2 hour finale
Season 5 - 17
Season 6 - 17
My guess for the shortened seasons is that they have material for 2 more full seasons (44/46 episodes), but want more money, so they break it into three short seasons (48/51 episodes) and BS their way though 4 episodes, or use them to tell us about Libby/Rousseau/other stuff that only "die-hards" care about. --Suddud (Talk) 20:04, 24 May 2007 (PDT)
  • Total hours hasn't been confirmed, there could be a 2-hour premier and final, thus making 18 hours total or technically 18 episodes. Besides the final season, they may give us a few more episodes to wrap up the show. Might be 20 episodes. Who knows. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Buffyfan123 (talkcontribs) .
  • Listen to the Podcast by Damon and Carlton. They explain that the 3 season, 16 episode break up works best for the story they want to tell. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by KennyRogersDairyChallenge (talkcontribs) .
  • It also works out fairly well for us, the viewers. A 16-episode season means we get about eight fewer episodes per season, BUT we get 'em all in one big chunk - there should be no extended breaks in the middle, like with S3 and S2 (which had at least /two/ breaks, one of which, frustratingly enough, was right before the finale. I didn't watch S1 when it aired originally, so I can't comment on its schedule, but I can't imagine it was aired continuously). --Shodan1138 20:17, 28 May 2007 (PDT)
    • Not only that, but (in my opinion) a 16-episode seasons feels a lot tighter narratively than a 22-episode season with filler episodes. Watching Season 1 again recently, I can't help but feel the story demanded going straight from "Do No Harm" to "Exodus"---"The Greater Good" had some good parts but the plot-relevant stuff could've been shifted to other episodes, and "Born to Run" is just pure filler. And you'll never convince me that Jack+Kate+Sawyer on Hydra Island needed 7 episodes.
  • Per the article linked to on the front page, this season and the fifth are set for 17 episodes now, please change. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Silentounce (talkcontribs) .
    • Now there will be 18 episodes. DarkUfo said it and ABC confirmed it. The first two episodes for the premiere and the last two for the finale. -- Lucas Benicá | Talk | Email | 00:04, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
  • So the season premier will not be two episodes back to back like season 5, so its going to be 16 episodes with the premier and final 2-hours for a total of 18 hours. This would be the shows first real 2-hour premier ever, Pilot was 2, but aired over 2 weeks. Technically they owed us the 18th hour anyways, since the extra hour added onto to the season 4 final, was asked by the producers because the final needed more story, so we lost 3 episodes there technically. Buffyfan123 10:32, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
    • Well, I don't think so. I think they'll show the two first and two last in the same day, what does not make them be the same episode. But the article needs to be updated. Ausiello confirmed that there will be 18 hours, and not 17. -- Lucas Benicá | Talk | Email | 04:29, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
      • Well actually, yes it does. They usually air finales as one whole, 2 hour long episode, but separate the 2 parts on the DVD or other things like that. --Master Patch 23:38, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
      • Falling ratings, sweetheart.--Crohall 21:01, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

Theories about Season 6

  • I reckon that Season 6 is going to be all about after they've been rescued, and how they all adapt to life after the Island. What do you reckon? --   Lost Soul   talk  contribs  01:22, 29 May 2007 (PDT)
  • I reckon it will be them trying to survive Naomi's boat wiping out everyone on the island. Rescue next season (perhaps using Naomi's boat). Then season six dealing with coming back to the island —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Marcusjh (talkcontribs) .
  • Could be that they get rescued some time in season 4 or 5, a lot of Season 5 could be off the Island, and Season 6 could involve them coming back to the Island leading up to the big finale. Although we've seen that Jack and Kate get off the Island, we don't know when exactly that is. Could be some time during the next three seasons, or could be after the show ends. Maybe we'll catch up to that point and carry on from there. It does seem a pretty bleak place to end the show.
A lot of people have speculated that episodes will now be set in the future and we'll start seeing flashbacks of the Island, but I'm not sure it would work for the 'present' to jump forward like that. I think we'll see flash-forwards like we did in the finale, but I don't think the series will jump forward like that, it'd be a bit messy.Liquidcow 02:32, 14 June 2007 (PDT)
    • The plane lands safely in LA but they all the passengers/main characters lives collide in some other ways in the states. Nsinkler 03:12, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
    • I reckon it will begin with Oceanic Flight 815 landing safely in LA, and the lives of the passengers if they didnt crash. The finale will be the Island being discovered and the last minute will be a plane landing in LA and it will show 6 coffins being taken off the plane and it will show you the faces of the bodies in the coffins when they go by. They will be the faces of the Oceanic 6: Jack, Kate, Sun, Sayid, Hurley and Aaron. AdamDS95 21:23, 16 January 2010 (GMT)
      • Nsinkler has somewhat of a good thought there. But as for Lost Soul, I really hope they don't do that, they would ruin the show. Good to know that they're way smarter than that...--Master Patch 23:32, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
  • Spoiler removed is taking part in 16 of the 18 episodes [1] suggesting that Spoiler removed.

Confirmed As In...?

So when they say confirmed, they mean that no matter how bad ratings get, there is garenteed to be a 6th season?-- DeGroot 07:44, 26 June 2007 (PDT)

  • I'm not sure, but I think it's just that if the show remains popular enough to air that it will go to season 6. Just giving us an idea of how long it's intended to air, opposed to just continuously going with no end in sight. I imagine if the ratings plummet huge (knock on wood that they dont) they would pull the show. But the fanbase is too loyal, I don't think the ratings could even drop enough. Voodoo 12:52, 29 July 2007 (PDT)
Just to answer this (I know its been a while) Yes. We are guaranteed that we'll get all the episodes up to the end of Season 6  Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  05:09, 16 March 2008 (PDT)

Perjury Trial

I'm not sure if I'm being really dumb and missing a joke, but Damon and Carlton say here that Season 6 will be Jack's perjury trial and we'll get flashbacks of the island:

I know they joke around in interviews, but if there's a joke here I don't get it. Is it worth noting on the page for Season 6?

If there is any truth to it, then it's as a metaphor, rather than a literal explanation. --Silvertouch 12:29, 18 March 2008 (PDT)

I don't see how you can say that for sure. Jack lied under oath, so he could well end up in court for perjury. I thought it might be worth putting on the main page for Season 6 that they said this, although I could understand if some people might consider it a spoiler.Liquidcow 05:02, 19 March 2008 (PDT)
I can see how you can say that for sure. They were definitely kidding, you just can't tell because their humor is wry and you can't hear the tone of their voices in a transcript. Kapland 07:08, November 5, 2009 (UTC)
Didn't they also sound like they were kidding when they said in an interview that season 4 would open with Hurley in a car chase? (Mirth23 10:09, December 5, 2009 (UTC))

Updated needed

It's now confirmed that Season 6 will contain 17 episodes --Hunter61 03:41, 10 May 2008 (PDT)

Return to the Island?

I keep randomly hearing that Season 6 is when (some of) the Oceanic 6 will return to the island. Is there any particular reason to believe this will not happen during Season 5?Mrmcpheezy 17:30, 13 May 2008 (PDT)

TPTB said Season 4 would be who gets off the island and how, season 5 would be why they want to go back, and season 6 would be what happens once they get back. As far as when they return, it could be the end of 5 i suppose, but they'll focus on what happens once they get back in 6. --Gluphokquen Gunih 20:03, 11 June 2008 (PDT)
In theory, season 5 could contain flashforwards to once they manage to return to the Island. But like Gluphokquen said, they made a comment about season 5 being about how/why they need to get back .  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  20:07, 11 June 2008 (PDT)

Theory on Season 5 finale

The bright white light at the end of The Incident. Where else have we seen a bright white light? Anytime the survivors where sent through time. Maybe when Juliet detonated the bomb, it somehow sparked something with the island, sending the survivors back to the future where fake-Locke and Ben stabbed Jacob. Juliet is still alive, because why make fans think she died of the fall, only to reveal she survived the fall in the last moments of the episode? Though she may die in the Season 6 opener along with Sayid. The Incident will be revealed to have been ultimately be caused by Jack's decision to detonate the bomb. Thoughts? --RandomParadoX —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Randomparadox (talkcontribs) 2009-05-14T14:57:48.

  • I can't connect this to anything but just thought I'd throw it out there that we also saw a bright light in the Season 2 finale, when they blew up the Hatch...--Master Patch 23:29, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
If Faraday is a Constant then what sprung from him is a Constant, so the decision that Jack would detonate the bomb is a Constant, which means that Jack caused the Incident. But we don't know about the actual effects of the Incident (even if it recalled me of when Desmond activated the Hatch failsafe), and i still think that Desmond is the Variable in the game, so I wouldn't be surprised to know he'll come back one way or the other. Juliet is clearly still alive. It still feels like too much of a cliffhanger, like the opening of the Hatch was. It was fun to see the way Pierre Chang lost the arm though. --Nikilist 08:46, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
I agree, it's very likely the bomb went off and thus created the chain of events leading to the plane crash of the people who will eventually detonate said bomb. This implies they are all stuck in some sort of time loop doomed to repeat itself over and over. Maybe Faraday is the only one not affected, a constant, but since he was killed he is killed for good, even if history is repeating itself. Locke needed to bring all survivors back to the island, possibly because otherwise they'd escaped the time loop by not detonating the bomb. So maybe season 6 is about the losties trying to ultimately break the cycle ...--Andy22li 09:16, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
What makes you so sure the bomb even detonated? I think it's more likely that they didn't make it in time, and the white flash was the energy being released, like when the failsafe key was turned.- Roobydo  talk  contribs  12:42, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

I heard that Season 6 would premeire in January if 2010. Also, Faraday saying that the bomb would possibly erase all of the Lostees time on the island, and Jack following that makes me wonder if they actually will end up back at LAX, or if they will just start back over all on the island. Another thing that I heard was that Charlie was expected to be in the final season. I guess we will just have to wait and see!

If they do reset things, and they all appear on the flight again, then won't Juliet appear back with the Others in Otherville? Where would Desmond and Joe Inman go? If they changed history to the point where there was no incident then there would be no need for the button. Unless... the incident is what reset things for them and this is always what happened, for example Pierre Chang just sees Miles vanish in front of him (freighter people wouldn't be on the island if the 815ers hand't crashed there). --FlashMedallion 02:37, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Premiere date

The reference to a February start date should be removed until we get an official announcement. So far, they've only said early 2010. -- Graft   talk   contributions  00:13, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram voting support - The February date was what they told us when they announced Lost would end after Season 6. Since both the Season 4 and 5 premieres have been in January, I'd say it isn't very accurate and should be removed.--Baker1000 00:24, 28 May 2009 (UTc)


This CTV article says ""Lost" wraps its puzzling storyline with 18 episodes next winter". No real spoilers in the link, just that. --Golden Monkey 13:55, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Could be a typo, or they're doing what I did at the start of Season 5 which is counting the double episode as episode 17 + 18.--Baker1000 16:09, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
Matthew Fox also made reference to 18 hours in his recent Monte Carlo interview. Very interesting. Could be a mistake, but it's also possible CTV would have inside knowledge on that. We'll have to wait for an ABC or Darlton announcement. -- Graft   talk   contributions  16:45, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
This adds a little more weight to the 18 episode speculation: [2]. Apparently the premiere will be a double episode, which explains why everyone is saying it will be 18 episodes.--Baker1000 20:05, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
  • But remember the season 4 final got an extra hour added to it, because the story came out longer, technically we lost 3 episodes in season 4, but they expanded the season 4 final story to 3 hours. So I guess they are doing it again, and adding an extra hour to the season 6 premier story now. So 601 will be 2-hours and not 601/602 back-to-back, like season 5. Buffyfan123 10:35, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
    • The way I understand it, is Season 6 was to be 17 hours long. they added an extra hour to the finale for a total of 18 hours. I believe it's going to be 17 weeks with a two hour finale. Sorry but I can't remember where I read that. --Gluphokquen Gunih 13:17, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Big Questions for season 6

Will Aaron and Ji Yeon ever meet for the first time? --Lg16spears 06:57, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

I wouldn't consider that a big question. The bigger question for me would be will Jin ever meet Ji Yeon, his daughter?--Baker1000 11:38, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
Seriously? That's your big question? What about:
  • What happens when Jacob touches you?
  • Is Jacob the one that made the list of the names of the people Sayid was to kill?
    • Not possible because Ben never actually met with Jacob. Kapland 07:11, November 5, 2009 (UTC)
    • Were the names on the list really associates of Widmore?
      • If so, is Jacob trying to keep Widmore from returning to the island?
        • If Jacob is trying to keep Widmore off of the island, and having Ben kill his associates, is Widmore working for/with Jacob's enemy?
  • Did the Monster (appearing as Alex) tell Ben to do whatever Locke said because it/she knew what "Locke" was up to, and has been trying to get rid of Jacob for a long time?
    • Was the monster fooled like everybody else?
    • When Widmore helps Locke get back to the island, does he know Jacob's nemesis will assume Locke's form to kill Jacob?
  • Is the "war" we've been hearing about not between Widmore and Ben?
    • Are they merely pawns in the greater struggle between Jacob and his foe? -- Roobydo  talk  contribs  12:06, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
      • Are Jacob and the Man in Black even foes? Was the Man in Black looking for a loophole so he could kill Jacob in order to help him in some way? --FlashMedallion 02:41, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

At the end Hurley will seen everywhere the numbers. On a pocket, a suit etc. He will getting crazy and go's back to the island and lives forever in the hatch.--Station7 18:53, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

  • The hatch that blew up? I don't think this would be a good end. I think no one but the producerts can get near from the idea of what the end is going to be. -- Lucas Benicá | Talk | Email | 04:37, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

This is very strange but Hurley will shoot Walt on the island in a flashforward. Because of Walt ,Locke is dead. Hurley will get to the radio tower and says The Numbers. Hurley saw a plane in the air . The Plane enters The Island. But Hurley sees The Numbers on the plane. He wanna stay on The Island. --Station7 19:23, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

No, I have something betters. Charles widmore will coming with a boat on the island. He's back. In 2008 Henry Gale meet Ben, we see what happened. Ben killed Henry. Sawyer says to Jack, Kate, Jin, Miles, Juliet and Hurley about a safe place called The Arrow. They are hiding there for The others. Jacob's nemesis is escaping. Lapidus flashback told us why he was not Oceanic Flight 815, in real-time he and the other people are no The Others. I think I have to much fiction.--Station7 11:42, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

  • The real Henry Gale crashed on the Island before 2004, so it would not happen in 2008.
  • THOSE are your big questions? Really?? What about, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?Sithboy 06:53, October 27, 2009 (UTC)

Of course not, one real important question is: Who will survive and who will die? What are the rules? What is the purpose of changing the rules? What is Iliana's history? Why want Widmore the Island?--Station7 07:24, October 27, 2009 (UTC)

Will the finale involve deaths of the Oceanic 6? AdamDS95 14:54, January 17 2010 (GMT)

New ARG? If this will get an explanation in Comic-Con Lostpedia should have an article about it. --Matan815 Capsule Dump 17:06, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

I agree. We don't know if it's an ARG or just a promotion for the Blu-ray of Season 5 though. I think the website itself deserves an article if nothing else.--Baker1000 20:35, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Season 6 Episode 1 Name

According to Spoiler TV, the first episode will be called *spoiler removed* It's confirmed. --Gavin Hetherington 19:17, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm going to have to remove that for now. Season 6 is months away, so I don't think we allow the first episode name on the site until closer to the date. I don't think titles are spoilers, but I know some readers do.--Baker1000 19:45, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Spoiler TV doesn't count. It has to be from ABC. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 17:54, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Umm... didn't ABC release the title of the first episode in the current ARG?  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  19:28, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
You're right, but anti-title people might contest the authenticity of the source. The title was revealed in a video that was posted on youtube and then embedded in an ABC owned site. ABC doesn't necessarily own the video. Gavin referenced Spoiler TV and I was just clarifying that it has to be from ABC. If we can get consensus that it's official, we can post it. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 23:32, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Well the policy is that the immediately upcoming episode is fair game, and ABC owns the video because they're doing the ARG, including participation by Damon and Carlton in that exact video.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  23:37, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I just stated some arguments that antt-title users might make if we posted it now. I'm all for posting it now, but some users might not like that. After all, the premiere is ~6 months away. Beginning-Mid-December? cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 23:50, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Has anyone heard what day and time LOST will be returning? I know it will be end of Jan/ beginning of Feb, but do we have a date yet? Writerstix 13:45, September 4, 2009 (UTC)
    • There has been no word yet. We usually don't know the date until the end of the year, maybe November/December time. I think it's shortly after they release the first official trailer.--Baker1000 15:43, September 4, 2009 (UTC)
    • The date is February 2nd, not sure about the time but if I had to guess, I'd say 8:00 EST --Master Patch 23:11, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Bad Twin

We will focus on on the book Bad Twin, because Damon and Carlton said that they are something new. Maybe something with the book. I don't know it's just an idea. It has something to do with a airplane. --Station7 14:12, September 4, 2009 (UTC)

Maybe this will happening again and again at the end. First Flight 815 crasht, than Flight 316. maybe if they get off the Island, maybe the next plane crash of an unnone number(623,895 etc.) will be crashing on the island. it will be forever, they never could from off the island.--Station7 17:27, September 6, 2009 (UTC)

Finale Date

This contains the date the finale will air on, if we're allowed to say that. --Golden Monkey 14:26, September 13, 2009 (UTC)

I don't see why the finale date would be a spoiler, but you never know. Since we know Season 6 will air 18 hours, with two double eps that makes it 16 weeks long. So counting back 16 weeks from the date on that page (19th May) you can work out that the start date for Season 6 is going to be 27th January. There will apparently be no breaks this time, so assuming the date on that article is actually correct, that is an accurate date.--Baker1000 16:40, September 13, 2009 (UTC)

Locke is centered, and he is the only character with his back turned. (Jack Dutton 19:35, December 4, 2009 (UTC))
Yeah, Locke is centered; does that suggest centricity, even if he is "being impolite?" What does apparent distance from the camera signify? How much of this is TPTB playing with our minds? Can't wait.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 21:05, December 4, 2009 (UTC)


So has the filming started? Is that even available to the public? Bwanartalk|contrib 15:15, September 21, 2009 (UTC)

I believe it started about a month ago. DarkUFO have been posting filming reports (not that I read them). I don't think you'd be able to just walk onto the set, but you can probably watch from behind the camera.--Baker1000 19:31, September 21, 2009 (UTC)

Premiere Date is not Feburary

I was watching a episode on Hulu and it had some ABC thing pop up saying: LOST RETURNS JANUARY 2010 So the starting month is wrong. --Golden Monkey 14:02, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

Here's a screencap. ABC's Lost site still says early 2010. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 18:42, October 3, 2009 (UTC)
  • Well the previous two seasons started in January, so it may be like last year, theres an additional hour added, so thats an extra week of Lost. I'd say around January 20 or 27 perhaps. Assuming its still Wednesdays. Theres the February Olympics to consider, so I doubt they'll lanuch Lost when thats on in February, I'd expect they'll launch it before in January. Just hope they wont have a week off Lost during Olypmics like they did back in season 2 during Febuary. Buffyfan123 09:19, October 13, 2009 (UTC)
    • Apparently if we are to take Carlton at his word it will likely start the second to last week of January, and then run right up till the two weeks of Winter Olympics; then come back afterwards. --LOST-The Cartographer 05:04, October 28, 2009 (UTC)
      • But if you read the news article on this sites front page, you will see that this may be be the case...--Baker1000 13:15, October 28, 2009 (UTC)


I don't know if it's confirmed, but one of the tailie extras on MySpace told me that they're returning in Season 6 (about time...) but she won't be there because she's busy (but her character is dead anyway). I hope this rumor turns out to be true, its about time we learn about the kids and other kidnapped folks (assuming we will since they're bringing back the tailie extras...)Plus, I miss Cindy :) --Mistertrouble189 16:14, October 5, 2009 (UTC)

18 Episodes

There is an error on the season 6 episode table. It only has 16 episodes when there should be 18.--Joshm1995 10:02, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Although it will contain 18 hours, there will still be 16 episodes (by Lostpedia's way of counting anyway). A double premiere and double finale. We'll only have one article for both parts of the premiere, and one for both parts of the finale like all double episodes, except the Pilot of course because it was aired on separate weeks so we count it as two episodes :)--Baker1000 13:16, November 5, 2009 (UTC)
  • Yeah the way episodes are handled is different than the numbering. We had a big debate about this, about splitting finals up to two pages etc.

Clip Show

What's the non-episode right before the finale? It's not listed as a recap, so is it a special or something, or is it just there automatically? Somehow I get the feeling that right before the final episode is not a good place for new viewers to pop in...:P --Golden Monkey 17:41, November 9, 2009 (UTC)

I don't know why it is there, or if there is even anything planned, but you can probably bet there will be some kind of special aired in the slot before the series finale to make a three-hour TV event. Perhaps not a clip show or recap, maybe a show talking about the impact Lost has had on television in the six year run. Either way they're going to show something to build anticipation during that final hour before the end.--Baker1000 23:22, November 9, 2009 (UTC)

Main character?

I heard **spoilers removed** will be a main character. Could anyone confirm this? Well, **spoilers removed** became a very inportant character in the last seasons, so it could be possible. --Darth Stefan (Talk) 21:03, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

It's true, it was confirmed at Comic-Con. Although some people consider that information to be a spoiler, so I have to remove it.--Baker1000 23:13, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

Premiere and time

February 2nd at 9 PM. Carlton Cuse confirms it on his twitter, and here's the press release [3]-it also confirms the season six main cast by the way, so don't look if you don't want to know. --Golden Monkey 22:13, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

And here's the link to the official press release from abcmedianet [4] (we should link directly to the source, instead of a secondary media source). -- Graft   talk   contributions  23:14, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
So how is Lostpedia going to handle the numbering this season? Since technically episode 1 is two episodes, like the Pilot. I know we will put both episodes in one article to treat it like a double finale, but just as long as we're clear that the second episode article should be numbered 6x03.--Baker1000 23:55, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
I'd recommend we treat it like Season 1, and create two seperate articles for "[Premiere Title], Part 1" and "[Premiere Title], Part 2". As far as I know, the episode aired on the second week of broadcast is considered 6x03 so this would be the logical choice. Pilot is considered two episodes so I'd assume the season six premiere would be considered similarly. --Jamie-0408 00:53, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
That argument doesn't really apply, because "Pilot, Part 1" and "Pilot, Part 2" aired on different weeks.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  01:49, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
That was why I brought it up, because I used to count double finales as a single episode and still count the Pilot as two. I know most people just call it "the pilot" without distinguishing that there are two narratives to the episode. I think 6x01 and 02 should be kept in one article with the x01 and x02 both redirecting you to that page. However it kind of causes a problem on the season nav at the top of the article if it is listed as "Blah blah, parts 1 & 2" next to "#01" and the following episode is next to "#02". I'm guessing there is a simple way to fix that though.--Baker1000 17:26, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
My thoughts on it are count them as two different episodes. "Because You Left" and "The Lie" were aired on the same night, but counted as two different episodes. We have the same case here. The first two episodes aren't named "Blah, Part 1" and "Blah, Part 2", they have (pseudo-spoiler warning) very different names and should be treated as separate episodes.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  19:20, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
Wrong. !SPOILER FIRST EPISODE TITLE! is two hours long, but counts as 6x01 and 6x02. !SPOILER SECOND EPISODE TITLE! counts as 6x03. Check out DarkUFO. --Pyramidhead 20:33, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
My mistake. In that case, my thoughts on it are that we count them as two episodes with a single article.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  23:42, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
  • The whole labeling has always confused me, we debated putting all hours into single aricles. Yes Pilot 1 and 2 aired on 2 nights, and season 5's first two eps aired on one night, but got 2 aricles. So I can see the confusion. So I do think count them as 2 episodes on one article. I think we should change the top bar, which has 16 episodes into 18, by labeling it 601/02 then 603, instead of 601 then 602 which is really 603. If that makes sense. Otherwise its confusing when for numbering, since we didn't have season 1 and 5 premiers. As 602 is really 603. Since the Pilot wasn't labeled just 101, then 102 was Tabula Rasa. It was 101/02 Pilot then 103 Tabula Rasa. So it should be 601/02 (2-part premier) then 603, instead of 601 then 602 (which is really 603 in hours). Buffyfan123 13:07, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Main Cast

If you guys just provided a link to the ABC/Medianet press release which (a)tells us that on Feb 2 LOST will premiere and (b) the season's main cast. I was fairly sure that Lostpedia's policy was to not post any info until a press release is out -- so since there is one that lists season 6's main cast, why cannot it be posted here?

I second that. Probably because there are people here who if they see even a hint of spoilers, will make a big deal out of it. Doesn't matter if it's official or not they don't want it on here. Same goes for episode titles. The first 9 are already known, but they won't have them up till the air individually. --LOST-The Cartographer 00:13, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
  • No, until it airs, but cast was despoilered I hear on the spoiler talk page, but not really. WTF. --Golden Monkey 00:47, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Promo pic of cast


Do these count as spoilers? I assume not, as the season five one was posted early and it doesn't give away any of the plot or events. Anyway, is this the official cast image? If so, should we put it somewhere? --Golden Monkey 16:22, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

I think the official Season 6 promotional poster is the one with all of the cast on it. I hope not to be honest, because I would prefer a picture of just the Season 6 cast. I think this poster is a bit like the Footless Faraday poster in Season 5. It is an official Season 6 cast photo, but it's just not the main poster if you get what I mean. As for spoilers, it's on the Lostpedia Blog too, so I think that means we're safe here :)--Baker1000 18:18, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
ABC has no officially released a version of it. I uploaded it, just in case it's needed; maybe it could be the episode placeholder image or placed somewhere. --Golden Monkey 00:24, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
Fantastic! I think it will look good as the episode placeholder image. There's another version with them looking at the camera, but I like this one better. I just wish it was bigger so I could use it for my computer wallpaper!--Baker1000 00:31, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

page update

Now that the title of the premiere is no longer a spoiler, the infobox should be updated. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 23:56, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

  • Another two problems: the episode page for the premiere has been given the Lost Supper image as a placeholder, which is fine since that's how Lostpedia has been doing it the last few seasons as well, but for the main page it should still be the main poster, the old blue one with "THE FINAL SEASON" in large type. So someone should change that back. Secondly, the slogan is not "Destiny Found", as this page would have us believe, but rather "The Final Season". Michael Lucero * Talk * Contributions
    • I agree. It was me who asked if we could change the episode placeholder image, but the actual Season poster should remain as the Final Season one.--Baker1000 13:17, January 14, 2010 (UTC)
      • Yeah, we should use the final season poster for this and the season 6 cast one for episodes. --Golden Monkey 14:44, January 14, 2010 (UTC)

But the image we used originally was perfectly fine, just not for the episode placeholder image.

Terry's character(s)

There seems to be a bit of an edit war going on concerning whether or not MIB should be listed on this article (as well as Season 5's) as being portrayed by Terry O'Quinn. Now, we've never really based ourselves on press releases for this articles, have we? I mean, Jacob is not listed as Man # 1 and Melissa Farman isn't credited as Young French Woman, hell, even the cast listing itself isn't based on the press releases but on the in-show credits, so I'm not sure why this is an issue. Besides, is there a precedent, on any ABC show, where an actor is listed, on a press release, as portraying multiple roles? I've never come across one personally ... --LeoChris 23:49, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

  • If the Monster is in the form of Locke, then the appearance should count as one of Locke's, for the same reason we count his appearances as Yemi, Alex and possibly Christian as appearances of those characters specifically. The monster is taking the form of Locke, so in a way we are seeing Locke.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  04:39, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
  • The edit war continues to rage on, I don't get why people are finding it so hard to understand. Just having O'Quinn as Locke is completely inaccurate and would mean he has only been in 5 or so episodes this season out of 12. O'Quinn plays large roles as both MIB and Locke and so needs to be credited as both. Phobia27 12:15, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

What's with the Season 6 navigator?

Doesn't this mean we have to include all the episodes with "part" as individual episodes, or why is this one any different?

Well since we had to name the 6x02 template to redirect to "LA X, Parts 1 & 2" (and a thank you for that finally happening), I guess it's just easier to give it two slots on the template to show it is two episodes, instead of "What Kate Does" being in the next slot down. I don't see the point in giving all part episodes a separate slot, it's just to keep the numbering correct. Although I suppose we could have just added /02 next to 01 on the first slot. I don't have any problems with them listed as separate parts on the template as long as they remain in one article. At least we have the 6x03 situation sorted now.--Baker1000 23:43, February 9, 2010 (UTC)
  • I say just list it with a 02 next to the 1 on the navigator page, that would solve the confusing, but I dont think how its done now is an issue. What about the other season pages, changing the navigator pages for the season final, to suite the 2 parts. Buffyfan123 23:48, February 9, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram reply{{ep|6x01-02}} gives you "LA X, Parts 1 & 2". cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 00:00, February 10, 2010 (UTC)
  • I think we should list it as two episodes, one for part 1 and part 2, that way the navigator can serve a much more appropriate use rather than fixing the numbering issue. Shortguy457 00:04, February 10, 2010 (UTC)
    • Are you suggesting we split the articles into separate episodes? We already voted to keep the double finale articles together after it was discovered "The Variable" is episode 100. We decided to keep the articles the same but note that they are two episodes. I don't see why we should change that now, or why this episode should be treated different. What harm is it doing to have them split on the template? Just because it doesn't show LA X, Part 1 and remains as a link when you're on the article? I don't see why it should be a problem, but if people don't like it, we should just change it back to "LA X, Parts 1 & 2" and have #01/02 on the template. The other solution is to hide "LA X, Parts 1 & 2" behind both links, like this LA X, Part 1. That way, both links on the template will turn bold when you're on the article. We keep the double episode articles because that's how they originally aired. Before you ask why "Because You Left" and "The Lie" are still separate despite airing back to back, well the fact that they are named differently tells us they were not written to be watched as a whole.--Baker1000 20:04, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Archive footage

Since the cast section (and the entire article, for that matter) is out-of-universe, it deals directly with the actors in each episode rather than the characters. We shouldn't count episodes where they didn't have to film any new scenes or even show up to work as ones that they appear in. --Pyramidhead 03:29, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Think of it this way. If in this episode, we had seen Emily Rae Argenti as young Kate, would you have counted that as another episode for Kate? No, you wouldn't have, because the section deals with the credited actors who appear in each episode, not the characters they play. This way, we have an accurate record of how many episodes each actor was CREDITED for shooting new scenes for, while acknowledging episodes that their earlier scenes were incorporated into. --Pyramidhead 03:33, February 17, 2010 (UTC)
Actually ... I'm fairly sure Argenti would have counted for Kate. What did we do with Charlotte in season 5? Anyway, I disagree. I think that archive footage should be listed, though a note about it being archive could be included in the footnotes. Think of it this way, the actors filmed the material, they got a paycheck. The material was reused. They got another paycheck. And then, there's the tricky situation of new-ish archive footage, like Matthew Fox's in Exposé. We hadn't seen that footage before, but it wasn't filmed for that particular episode ... so where does that leave us with your proposed system? In a lovely grey area I think we could avoid by simply considering that actor appears in any way, shape or form, their count gets upped by 1. :) --LeoChris 03:39, February 17, 2010 (UTC)
That makes no sense at all. The whole point is that we're counting Evangeline Lilly's appearances as Kate Austen, not just "Kate Austen." Just because the actors are contracted to appear in every episode if need be doesn't mean they actually get paid for work they don't do. As it is now, Charlotte is correctly listed for both appearances by Rebecca Mader and the young actress, and Jack and everyone else showing up in Expose shouldn't be counted. Again, I'm fine with including archive stuff on each character page and in the appearances tally, but those are in-universe. --Pyramidhead 03:47, February 17, 2010 (UTC)
My mistake about Charlotte (and Kate) then. I agree with your point of counting the actors' appearances, I was just trying to keep a certain form of (what I mistakingly believed to be) uniformity. Still, for characters appearing in archive footage portrayed by their main actors, I still disagree. Yes, some cast members have seasonal contract that means they get paid even if the writers decide not to utilise their characters, but guest stars are probably another story. I don't know how the industry works in the state, but I do know for a fact that in some places of the world, in television productions if somebody wishes to reinsert archive footage of someone into newly edited material, that person gets paid a certain (albeit reduced) amount of money. Futhermore, getting rid of archive footage would mean we no longer would list Kiele Sanchez as appearing in season 4 or Emilie de Ravin as appearing in season 5 ... wouldn't that just confuse casual readers of Lostpedia? My point with Exposé was that while the material may have been shot years prior to the filming of the rest of the episode, it was still aired for the first time along with the rest of it. Can it really be considered archive, then? --LeoChris 03:57, February 17, 2010 (UTC)
I used "paid" as an example to get my point across; it's really irrelevant to the issue. The point is that, barring odd situations like with Expose, the actors themselves do not appear in new material when archive footage of them is used; if they weren't contractually obligated to be in the opening credits, they would not be credited at all for those episodes. So for this and other out-of-universe pages like each actor's article we need to be careful to adhere to that standard. --Pyramidhead 04:01, February 17, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, but if this is a case of actors credits than Terry O'Quinn should only be listed as John Locke considering he has never been credited as The Man in Black, through every press release he is listed as playing only John Locke. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  15:47, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Three Part Finale

  • I read that the producers have stated the season will have a three hour finale in two parts - episode 16 being part 1 and episodes 17 and 18 being parts 2 and 3. So surely it should eb listed as this rather than 17 being part 1 and 18 being part 2?--CooperSimply 15:36, February 17, 2010 (UTC)


For me, it seems that the footnotes about archive footage appearances are becoming quite of redundant. I think that the main purpose of a season summary page should be to present general and relelvant information about the season and not to go into details. It is important to list the actors and characters involved, but do we really have to point out that Daniel Dae Kim didn't appear in new footage in The Substitute? Additionally, who knows how many archive footage appearances are going to be - are we going to have 10-star long markings? And let's not forget the fact that previously to Season 5, we haven't listed arch. foot. appearances at all. (and even last year, only in the cases of recurring characters) Since we have a separate Appearances page which can go into details, I suggest deleting the footnotes. Perhaps in case of actors who appear ONLY in archive footage (Kevin Durand in Season 5 for example), we could add a footnote about that, since it might be relevant. Now, whether to count an arch. foot. appearance as an actual "appearance" is a different debate. Andris22 16:16, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Let's just not list any archive footage on the season cast page. --Golden Monkey 22:53, February 18, 2010 (UTC)
Since stock footage doesn't count as an appearance on this article, should the same go for the character appearances? Jack is listed on that page as having no speaking lines. I only ask this because right now it says Jack has reached 100 episode appearances (which is a milestone I think should be noted on his trivia section, or even the episode trivia) but if we don't count this episode as an appearance then we're going to cause confusion over which episode he actually reached 100 in.--Baker1000 23:31, February 18, 2010 (UTC)
Archive footage has always counted towards characters' appearances' overall totals in the past. Changing that now would require us going back to 1x01 and recounting everything. There's really no reason to do that. --LeoChris 23:45, February 18, 2010 (UTC)
The critical difference is that the character appearances page deals with the characters themselves, regardless of who played them or whether it was new footage or not. THIS page deals solely with the actors playing the characters and how many new episodes they actually took part in filming. --Pyramidhead 00:00, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
  • Yeah thats true, although archieve footage and photos shown of characters should not be noted. Buffyfan123 00:21, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Heads up, posting upcoming episode titles and/or centrics are prohibited based on the current spoiler policy. It's dumb, but it's the way it is.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  22:59, February 21, 2010 (UTC)
Man, even in the discussion page? That is dumb indeed. Guess I'll just go other places for info. Jethelred 02:16, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
Hey, part of that was relevant. The list says there's 13 "new episode" nights between now and the finale night, meaning that there are a total of 19 episode/hours in the season. Someone should be allowed to fix that, right?Jethelred 02:21, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
That's based on the finale date being a Sunday. My understanding is that May 11: Series Finale, Part 1, May 18: Nothing/Rerun?, May 23 (Sunday): Series Final, Parts 2 & 3. ABC, Darlton and several other sources have repeatedly referred to 18 hours. BTW, I agree that some of that (the officially released parts) are perfectly fine. But, thats contradictory to the spoiler policy.cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 02:32, February 22, 2010 (UTC)


The article has been a continuous target for spoilers (well-intentioned or otherwise). It's not a high-maintenance item and I think the administrators should decide when to make the actual edits.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 14:31, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Agreed, I got a little annoyed when I saw the upcoming episode names and centrics last night. Lock it for admin updates only until the final week. I wish people would read the spoiler policy before they jump in. Blender83 16:52, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
Strong disagree. This article needs to be updated continuously throughout the season. Locking it would prevent us from being able to do this and would be a huge mistake.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  17:07, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
I agree with Jimbo, but am also annoyed that episode titles and centrics, etc, are cosntantly added, only for the admins to have to remove them again. Find another solution, or lock the article down. If locked, it would behoove the admins to have an agreement on who will be making regular updates.--Dretzle 19:21, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps we should only allow long time members to edit it? I seem to remember we locked the whole site down last year for members who had only just registered (under a month or so). If we can do that to just this article, we should. I don't think titles are spoilers, but that's another argument and it is against the spoiler policy, so I remove them the same as everyone else. Good thing is I know all the titles and centrics already. I agree with Jimbo that we use need to update this continuously. I'm sure the moderators are too busy to keep updating this article all by themselves, that's why we started leaving it unlocked because it went long periods of time without being updated. I haven't looked at everyone who is adding episode titles to the article, but the few I have seen are new members. So limiting access to users who have been a member for at least a week or two will prevent people signing up just to add episode titles.--Baker1000 20:43, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
I think we should limit editing to users who have been here for at least a month, though a week or two would be okay as well. I'm getting annoyed at removing stuff like that. Well I read Dark UFO so I already know it all, but still, it has to be removed so I might as well do it. Er. Anyway, about a month I'd say. --Golden Monkey 20:52, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Series Finale

Is the series finale going to be two hours or three. Different sources say 6.16, 6.17, 6.18 will be the finale and others say 6.17 and 6.18. --Joshm1995 07:16, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

I read Carlton Cuse say it would be a 3 part finale over two broadcasts, so that's 6x16, 6x17-18. That was before the season started, I don't know if the plan might have changed since then though.--Baker1000 13:20, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
According to twitter, different people will be writing 6.16. It is also known to have a different title. So it's a two hour finale, then. --Golden Monkey 08:09, March 26, 2010 (UTC)
I learned of that fact today. DarkUFO haven't even added the title of 6x16 on their Episode Guide yet, which made me think it was still part of the finale. I had to find the title on Wikipedia, of all places. Cool, gives me another centric to try and guess as I thought I knew all the centrics apart from the finale. Strange that Carlton said it would be 3 parts though, I wonder if it was planned but they decided against it.-—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Baker1000 (talkcontribs) .
From what I can tell, they originally planned a 3 part finale but rewrote it to be two different episodes. 6x16 and 6x17/6x18 have different writers and a different title, though I obviously can't say either. --Golden Monkey 15:33, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Flash-forward / Flash-sideways???

Why were all the infoboxes that had Flashforwards and Flashsideways given hyphens?? Looks awful. (Kdc2 03:45, April 5, 2010 (UTC))

  • Because that is the proper writing of those words, with a hyphen. This writing is used all over the site. --Orhan94 02:32, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
    • I agree. So why has it suddenly been changed back? And why has the flash sideways article had the hyphen removed from the title?--Baker1000 19:41, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
      • Flashforward shouldn't be hyphenated. And 'flash sideways' is better than using a hyphen as well. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kdc2 (talkcontribs) 2010-04-10T19:37:41.
        • "Flash sideways" is the noun form and "flash-sideways" is the adjective form.  Robert K S   tell me  01:14, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

Similarities between S1 and S6

"The first episodes of Season 1 ("Pilot, Part 1") and Season 6 ("LA X, Part 1") open with Jack's point of view and are multi-centric. The second episodes of Season 1 ("Pilot, Part 2") and Season 6 ("LA X, Part 2") are multi-centric."

"LA X" is multi, but isn't "Pilot, Part 1" considered Jack centric? It is on here, anyway. Same goes for "Pilot, Part Two." It isn't multi, it's Charlie & Kate. (Kdc2 21:50, April 15, 2010 (UTC))

Technically since pilot has parts 1 and 2 its all one so its multi centric. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  22:02, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, parts 1 and 2 were written together. The script-which I have read-is split into two halves, but the episode was meant to be one. So they didn't sit down and say "part 1 is Jack's centric, part 2 is Kate and Charlie's" they thought "this episode has flashbacks from Jack, Kate and Charlie, and we'll place Jack's before they go to the cockpit, Charlie's after Kate says something unintentionally ironic to him, and Kate's after Sayid accuses Sawyer of being the prisoner." --Golden Monkey 04:35, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

Extra half hour

As sad as tonights episode was weve got some good news the finale will now be 2 and 1/2 hours long. And not just for commercials sake. It appears as though the producers had to request a little more air time to get all the info into the finale. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  03:20, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

  • But is it an extra half-hour added on to two normal episodes (ie 1:50ish in total) or a full 2:30 episode (ie 3 normal episodes)? Nothing I can find seems very clear on this. Lostpedia doesn't even seem to have a page on the episode. Vl'hurg 20:25, May 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • We have a weird thing with our spoiler policy that prevents us from creating pages for more than one upcomming episode at a time. But at any rate, I'm about 95% sure that it just means that instead of airing from, say, 7:00-9:00, it will go 7:00-9:30. (Your numbers may change depending on your location.) So overall, probably about 22 minutes of extra Lost.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  20:38, May 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • What I'm wondering about is how syndication / international airings will work out ... will we have something like (Title of the last episode), part 3 that only lasts 22 minutes? Will 22 minutes of material be cut (ouch!)? ... --LeoChris 21:10, May 13, 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram reply If they do cut 22 minutes it probably won't be at the end. They'll shorten this conversation, maybe cut the previously on Lost, trim the post credits scene etc... Or they'll syndicate half-hours 3+4 one week and syndicate half-hours 4+5 the next week. I think all the English speaking countries will get it in one 2 1/2 hour block. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 22:09, May 13, 2010 (UTC)
    • It's the series finale, all the countries will air it the way it has been produced, which is 1h40 of LOST for a final episode. Remember only America can manage ONE HOUR of commercials break with one show at a time. They can't sell "2 hours and half" since they don't have them. It's one hour of commercial and 1h30-40 of actual show. The regular episodes aren't hours. They are 41 minutes. Most european countries have a maximum 5 minutes break, not 20 minutes like in America. So no problem with syndication.
It sounds to me like your saying the episode is going to be the same length of a normal finale just longer commercials. That is wrong, the producers requested the extra half hour, I doubt theyd do that for more commercials. My bet is in other countries you will be shorted some scenes that they may feel are not important like ABC did for the re-airing of Ab Aeterno. I think thats a load of bs for you guys but thats probably what theyd do. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  15:04, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

The above is sort of hard to read, correct? I propose we change the background color for all of the episode sectionboxes on this article, but I'm not sure what color it should be. Maybe a lighter shade of gray? Let's just make it so it is easier to read the text in these sectionboxes. Who agrees? --  Blackout0189    talk    contribs    email   20:00, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

    • I changed it to black, because it matches the DVD box like all the other season articles. I did suggest changing the font to white, but it never happened. It has to be either black or white to stick with the theme of the DVD box. I thought a white background would be a bit boring, so I used black. I did try to choose a shade that wouldn't make the text too hard to read.--Baker1000 12:09, September 6, 2010 (UTC)
