LOST Spoilers - DarkUFO

UGO: What episodes have you guys written so far?

CARLTON CUSE: We're working on 11, 10, and 9 sort of all simultaneously; we've got those 3 out of 5 in the works.

UGO: When you were out on strike, did the process stop for you mentally, or were you sort of writing in the back of your mind ?

DAMON LINDELOF: We were sort of processing more about the episodes that we'd completed then we were looking forward. There is always a period about half way through the season - in this case that was episode 8 - where you kinda say what's working, what's not working, what could be working better, are we moving fast enough, is it too confusing, what storylines should we hold off on doing, what storylines do we want to move up. So we were sort of thinking about the episodes we'd completed versus thinking about what we were going to do when we came back because 'when' we would come back was such a huge question mark.

CARLTON: We didn't really talk about the show at all. Creatively it was a pretty complete break so when the strike ended and we started back I think we were really kind of refreshed. It's the longest stretch we've gone without talking about, discussing, or processing the show since it started. When we first came back it was sort of all about trying to remember ...okay this is where we are, this is where we were," and sort of replanting where all of the characters were in the landscape of the world of the show.

UGO: With the new schedule is the finale going to be a one hour episode or will it be two hours?

DAMON: We are writing it as a two hour but they want to air it as two different hours because on May 22nd, which is essentially the last day of the season, they have a two hour Grey's [Anatomy] finale which going to run from 8 to 10, and that is only going to leave an hour for us. It's going to be designed as all of our finales have been, but not unlike the Lost pilot, which was written a two hours and aired as two separate hours , that is what they are going to do.

UGO: Who does episode 9 belong to? Is that something you want to talk about just yet?

CARLTON: That's... something we don't want to spill the beans on just yet.
