LOST Spoilers - DarkUFO

Thanks to DarkUFO reader thedemonhog for this report from the recent Screenwriting Expo which they attended. Here are some of the bullet points from the report and you can read the full report below. It's a good read and contains a lot of good insights into the writing of the show and a few spoilers.

- Cuse : "This year will probably be a little bit more science fictiony"
- Lindelof : "Lost has really been about the long con, because by the time we get to season 6, it's going to be f**king crazy!"
- Lindelof : "As for the end of the series, and whether every question will be answered, Lindelof noted, "Sometimes we're presenting things that are not really questions for us, but they become questions for the audience, and we don't have an intention of answering them." He said that something like what is causing that roar in the jungle they certainly intend to answer, but, "that's not to say there won't be some questions left," depending on the individual viewer and what they become fixated on."
- Lindelof : "There's a fine line between The Sopranos ending and the way we plan on ending our show. There are going to be a lot of mythological wrap ups, but our suspicion is most people really care how the characters end up - who's going to end up with who? Who lives? Who dies?"
- Cuse : "Cuse answered a question about the oft-confused Steve and Scott and said that not only would there not be an episode focused on them, but that there is "a very tragic event that happens this season."
- Lindelof : "Jeff Goldsmith jokingly asked the duo their "Favorite scene from the Season 6 finale.". Fans can speculate however on whether Lindelof was joking or giving any sort of real hint, when he said, "It involves a volcano."
- We are never going to meet the DeGroots, but we are most likely going to see them.

I am from Vancouver, Canada, but I flew down to Los Angeles for the 2008 Screenwriting Expo. More specifically, I was there to see the writers of Lost and I sat front row, centre. Eric Goldman from IGN, who I shared a few words with in the audience, has done a pretty good job hitting most of the major points from the first ninety-minute panel with Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse at http://tv.ign.com/articles/930/930680p1.html, but for some reason, he did not stay for the second panel with Edward "Eddy" Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, so I can give you a rundown of what happened there, in addition to some things that the show runners said that is not at IGN.
