Comic Con 2007 Lost Update

911985991_7e1cfbbb69.jpeg

Since I just couldn’t pull a road trip together to get to San Diego for Comic Con this year, I’ve been trying to keep up with everything going on there, especially with the Lost announcements. To save the Losties among you guys some time and frustration while you try to find the good information out there, I’ve compiled some photos, video, transcripts and notes.

Among the juiciest bits:

  • We will see flashback stories for Rousseau and we will finally get a full back story for Libby.
  • “…whats coming to the island is worse that the Others…”

  • Harold Perrineau is returning as a full cast member and will play a pivotal role in seasons 4, 5 and 6.
  • An orientation film was shown for Station 6: The Orchid.
  • A Lost video game that I will probably buy even though it looks like a piece of shit because I’m TPTB’s fanboy bitch is coming out.

The Lost Video Game trailer, the Orchid Orientation Film and a pretty-close-to-full full transcript of the panel are after the cut.

DAMON: Ted Rawson, how are you?

TED: Thanks for coming down. Thanks for making one of the best shows on television.

CARLTON: Thank you.

[Claps, and a camera cut]

TED: …for the Season finale of Season 3 which brought Lost back into the amazing character development that Season 1 was for us.

DAMON: Thank you.

TED: So please keep that up, and of course the flash-forward has still got us all spinning. My question is that in Season 3 the violence really ratched it up, the Others are an extremely violent culture, and we saw a lot of Schindler’s List kinda stuff going on. Can you comment on that, can you help context that for us. Please please please tell me that we’re not at the end gonna find out that the Others really are the good guys and that the end justifies the means.

CARLTON: I think what we wanted to do most of all was that we wanted to make the Season tell a complete story, and the Season was the story of the Others, and that story had a beginning middle and end and we really felt that the conflict that the Others sort of brought to our guys we had to resolve and we didn’t wanna dodge that, we wanted there to really be summation, a showdown, a real conflict between them and that involved a body count, and that’s just the way it unfolded for us.

DAMON: I would actually argue though, were you to go back and look at Season 1 that you’d find more acts of violence that our guys committed upon each other than the violence that the Others committed upon them or each other, but our guys are just a lot prettier so (crowd laughs) when Sawyer is punching you in the face you’re kinda like more please, (laughs continue), you’re just so attractive, do you wanna take your shirt off while the beating continues. That would work for me too so, but when Pickett or Friendly is beating you up, its kind of like oh this is brutal violence. Not the kind of violence we subscribe to, so we promise as the show moves forward, if the violence continues it will be perpetrated by catastrophically good looking people. (crowd laughs)

DAMON: Next question please.

WOMAN: Er anyway…. my question is, each episode has its own writers, like normally a pair, so how much of the content do they control over each episode, does each writer say like OK I want Hurley to run over this dude with a bus and it happens, or do you guys tell them OK you have to do this, or is it just everyone backstage just agreeing on everything?

CARLTON: Its kind of, its a real collective process, we break the stories in this writer’s room, its this conference room with white boards all over the walls, we all sit in there and this year there are 8 writers, including ourselves, and we work the stories out beat by beat, detail by detail, so a lot of those kinds of questions like should Hurley run someone over with a bus are debated back and forth, and I think really kind of the best ideas went out at the end. And the process of breaking the stories is very collective, and we break off a couple of writers who’ll go off and write the outline of a script for that, which is sort of overseen by Damon and me, and they obviously contribute ideas, and really we just kind of try to see the writing process as very collective and inclusive, so they can throw their ideas in at any point in the process, but we really work really hard on the stories and by the time the story’s broken in any real detail, pretty much all those details have been worked out so they really do get aired in the writers’ room.

DAMON: What’s kind of interesting is that every writer on our staff is amazing, and have their own sort of favorite character a lot like you guys. Eddie and Adam, the two guys who we saw making jokes about the Others, the unsung Others, have been on the show since the first Season and they love Hurley and they love Charlie, so…

CARLTON: And all the minor characters like…

DAMON: Yes, Neill Frogurt. Neill Frogurt is mentioned by Hurley in an episode in Season 2 so we’re gonna get around to his story (crowd laughs) at some point. But essentially those guys, in fact Eddie pitched the VW van idea in the first place and that connected into an idea that we’d already had where Ben having killed his own father, and we said what if it was in that van and we can set up that van in the middle of the Season and he can go back to it later so the coolest thing about the show is the way big plot ideas that we have begin to fit in with sort of the cooler more character driven ideas that come along and that’s all sort of an amazing team, and we spend 10-12 hours a day in a room together writing Lost, and its the best job in the world.

WOMAN: Keep playing that banjo, Carlton.

CARLTON: Oh thank you.

DAMON: ….No. (Crowd laughs)

CARLTON: No.

DAMON: Stop playing that banjo.

CARLTON: Damon had to wear pants today, he really tried to take em off when we were coming on stage…

DAMON: I’ve actually taken them off since I got on stage. (Crowd laughs) For those of you who are actually recording this against the rules, just watch my left hand (Crowd laughs) No I’m taking off my pants.

CARLTON: Next question!

(A bell sounds and the audience laugh again)

DAMON: We haven’t used the bell yet.

MAN: Though I’m slightly terrified, I wanted to thank you for my new obsession, that’s where the show goes, and I had a question that’s been bugging me for about a year or so now, and I understand you can’t say anything about it, but where’s Michael? And is that storyline dead is all I really wanna know.

CARLTON: Erm probably all of you saw that Steve McPherson announced yesterday at the Television Critics Association Meeting that Harold Perrineau will be back on the show this coming Season.

DAMON: And er, this was kind of a boner for us cause we got spoiled, and that was an announcement that we were hoping to make at the Con so we’re a little depressed.

CARLTON: But we had planned to announce that to you guys here, but we never realized that the meeting was the day before Comic Con, so the timing never really registered in our brains, so we were going to announce that Harold will be returning but yes he will be returning.

DAMON: But we’re not really going to be talking about how…

MAN: OK. Thank you.

DAMON: Thank you.

[Camera jumps]

MAN: I was just wondering if in future episodes we’ll see any more flash-forward scenes like in the Season finale.

DAMON: Ahhh!

CARLTON: The answer is yes. (Audience clap and woo). Let’s say a little bit more about that now. There’s been a lot of speculation (Damon readies his hand on the bell), about what the show will be going forward, certain people have speculated that the show will take place in the future but we will then flashback to the Island, but the truth is that going forward the show is going to feature flashbacks and flash-forwards.

DAMON: I’m not ringing the bell. I think the opperative question becomes how forward, and with whom, so if you continue to watch the show – I see you reaching – you’re going to be pleasantly surprised and we’ll just leave it at that for now.

WOMAN: Hey, what’s up?

DAMON: Hi, how are you? What’s up?

WOMAN: I’m good, how are you?

CARLTON: We’re fine, how are you?

DAMON: (Laughs) How’s everyone else?

(Crowd cheer)

WOMAN: My question is that everyone on the Island is always connected, I mean you see Locke with Rose, or Sawyer with Jack’s dad, but the one connection that I was really surprised at was Jack and Claire being brother and sister and I was wondering if they’re gonna find out in Season 4.

(Carlton puts his hand over the bell, crowd laughs)

DAMON: This is actually fun, its sort of like how can I not get…

(Bell rings, everyone laughs)

CARLTON: I’m sorry. We can’t talk about that.

DAMON: But er, thank you for asking.

WOMAN: Thanks.

DAMON: Thank you.

MAN: I got a question about the DHARMA Initiative.

DAMON: Awesome. (Crowd laughs)

MAN: We’ve obviously seen a lot of the DHARMA zoo already, Ezra James Sharkington, the polar bear, I was wondering if in Season 4 we’ll maybe see more and maybe a little of Mrs Ezra James.

DAMON: For those nine of you who listen to the podcast, that was a very funny question.

CARLTON: Yeah that was, you need to get a new hobby I think. Yes, as a matter of fact the DHAMRA Initiative, you may be learning more about the DHARMA Initiative sooner than you can even imagine. How about that for you?

MAN: You mean like the mobisodes?

DAMON: You mean like I’d have to wait til February to learn more about the DHARMA Initiative?

CARLTON: Er how about (looks at watch), 5:58?

(Crowd scream)

DAMON: What’s going to happen at 5:58 Carlton?

(Both hit bell at same time and laugh)

DAMON: Next question. Thank you very much.

MAN: Hi my name’s Paul, I wanted to know if you said that there aren’t going to be any more episodes til February, are there going to be any repeats from this Season before then, and also when is the Season 3 DVD coming out?

CARLTON: The Season 3 DVDs I think are coming out for the holidays, the exact date I don’t think has been set yet, its gonna be the end of November beginning of December.

DAMON: As to re-runs, there are no plans to have the show on the air. Fans like to watch the show sequentially and ABC have a whole new set of shows to launch, and have a whole new Wednesday night. So we’d be surprised if there were any re-runs of Season 3 and I’m sure they’ll do a very good job…

CARLTON: Plus of course ABC.com, we live in a new media world where you can see I think the last 6 episodes that were on available, you can obviously buy the videos on iTunes.

DAMON: And Carlton sells them out of the back of his car. (Crowd laughs)

CARLTON: They’re dubbed in Chinese though.

WOMAN: The DVD also coming out December 11th.

DAMON: Excellent.

CARLTON: We have a lot of the DVD folk up here.

DAMON: Thank you.

CARLTON: Alright.

MAN: Basically I just wanted to say Mosseltoff on your Emmy nomination for writing, best Season finale ever.

DAMON: Mosseltoff is Jewish for well done.

MAN: Congratulations. I had a question about Ben in Season 2, the first time we meet him he’s caught in Rousseau’s trap, did he actually get caught in the trap or was that deliberate.

DAMON: (Rings bell) I’m joking, you can finish your question.

MAN: And did he actually kill Henry Gale or did he get killed when the balloon landed. Any answers you can give us?

DAMON: If we had to answer just one of those questions, which one would you choose?

MAN: The truth is I only wanted him to be in six episodes and then you went and expanded it, but I’m going to say…

DAMON: There you are! That’s you! You Trojan Horsed me with your Mosseltoff. (Crowd laughs)

CARLTON: You make Damon such a happy man. If you went through this entire panel and everyone was nice, he would be miserable.

MAN: No its fine.

CARLTON: What answer would you like?

MAN: I’d like to know if he actually got caught in the net deliberately, or did he, get caught.

CARLTON: He got caught deliber, he got caught by accident.

DAMON: Yes he did not try to get caught in Rousseau’s trap.

[Inaudible discussion]

DAMON: But we will be revealing how and why Ben got caught.

MAN: Thank you.

DAMON: Thank you very much.

WOMAN: Hello. With the decision to end the show in six Seasons coming right in the middle of the year, did that directly impact how Season 3 wrapped up or was that already on the docket from the get go?

DAMON: May I begin?

CARLTON: Sure.

DAMON: Basically, we’ve talked about the show and what the Island is and certain major plot turns like when the Others would reveal themselves and when Desmond would, when Penny would become aware of the Island, so had all of these things in play, but as long as we were proceeding without knowing where the finishing line was, we had to delay stuff we’d like to have done sooner because it became about tap dancing. And I think when the audience and the general critics realized that there was a little too much tap dancing going on, a critical mass began to build about needing to end the show and then it was announced that they were gonna let us do it. So one of the things we’ve wanted probably from the end of Season 1 Carlton and I sat down and said…

(Carlton rings bell)

DAMON: Do I have to stop talking? You just wanted to do that. Er, this flashback device is not going to work forever. The minute that we stopped showing the audience relevant moments from these characters’ lives and the minute it starts looking like we’re just making this up as we go along, cause when you’re dealing with the past you can’t make it up as you go along, like suddenly Jin had a second wife and its like oh really you never mentioned her, so we knew we were gonna have to switch gears, and we switched gears in the way of flash forwards.

CARLTON: It basically gave us license to execute that idea, because we didn’t know how many episodes we had to film, but once we said OK we have 48 episodes we thought OK now we can put that out there. Previously it was the present, and we wanted to introduce this notion of the future, and the show as a mosaic, and going forward you’re going to be seeing the show in each of those different time zones, and what you saw with Kate and Jack wasn’t the end of the show.

DAMON: That’s the big thing what Carlton just said that the show has never really been about getting off the Island, and people have been asking us all along is there going to be an after-Lost, like if the show ends with them getting rescued will we see what their lives will be like. And we were kind of sitting on this knowledge of knowing there’s this whole chapter that takes place off the Island, because we can’t start telling it until we know that the show is going to end, because if you had seen the Kate and Jack scene just at the end of Season 3 and it was just another episode instead of one less episode, I think you would have thrown up your hands on your head and said they are f***ing stalling again. Because it was in the context of we’re moving toward the end, we needed to do something radical to say come with us to the end and it won’t be a waste of time, and they let us do it which was cool.

WOMAN: I totally understand that you were spoiled, but I also feel like you were gonna bring something unique by talking about Michael here, and I think it’d be a shame if we don’t get when a where, I just kinda feel like its a hoax and he’ll be coming back in flashback, cause you’ve done that to us before.

CARLTON: Oh good, this is another fan of yours Damon.

WOMAN: I don’t mean to put you in a cold sweat but I just think we need to know a little more, its a little bit unfair. Just give me a when!

DAMON: All right!!

CARLTON: Please. Please.

DAMON: What does your shirt say?

WOMAN: Dad.

DAMON: That’s so sweet. We will tell you everything you wanna know about Michael when…

(Bell rings)

CARLTON: Who rang that bell?

DAMON: Ladies and gentlemen, Harold Perrineau!

(Crowd screams and claps as Perrineau enters)

(Incoherent talking as crowd loudly talk with excitement)

HAROLD: Man I’ve missed you all!

(Crowd cheer)

DAMON: So er obviously now Harold will answer any questions that you ask, he has got his own bell, but I know that I speak with everybody involved with the show when I say how excited we are to bring you back, Harold was actually the first and only actor who’s ever left the show and is actually part of a grander design and come back, and it was excruciating for us to kind of keep our mouths shut, all of us, for a season, essentially 28 weeks later kind of kicked ass so…. (inaudible) And we’re just thrilled to have you back.

HAROLD: And its the same here, its been one of those long tricky like, they’ve had more information than I’ve had so, we had choices and then finally its all worked out, I’m really really excited to go back to Hawaii and things and work my friends. And now we know when its going to end so this time’s… (inaudible)

CARLTON: Michael’s story is for us one of the most becoming storylines on the show because here’s a character who obviously undertook some very extreme actions in order to basically get his son off the Island and then when he sailed off in that boat I think everyone was very critical about what happened to him, what is his fate, and in a series that deals about with the powers of redemptive on the Island and what these characters need to do to be redeemed, we really feel that Michael’s story will be a really compelling part of the Season.

DAMON: And we can confirm that Harold is not coming back for a quick pop in an episode, he is gonna be a series regular, he has rejoined the cast.

(Loud claps)

DAMON: We’re not going to tell you when, but it is going to be early in the fourth Season, because I think the way that we’re doing it is going to be fairful awesome. (Crowd laughs) So er feel free to direct your questions to Harold.

HAROLD: If you want, but I have the same answer I’ve had from the beginning – I don’t know! (All laugh) But really any questions you have, talk to the two men, they have it all in their heads.

MAN: Good to see you back Harold.

HAROLD: Thank you.

MAN: I had a question about the Lost Experience. After Season 2 that really just kept me loving Lost and after I found out that it wasn’t here after Season 3 I was really disappointed cause I need my little fix. I was wondering if we’re ever going to get one back, and also if Rachel Blake’s gonna end up on the Island any time soon.

CARLTON: Rachel is probably not going to end up on the Island any time soon, but obviously we’ve been taking long-term about doing these Lost mobisodes which are going to be little short movies that you’re going to be able to access on your cellphone. Those are still in process, we’re hoping to get those down and out this fall, they might be the next thing you see in terms of original content on Lost apart from what’s going to happen at 5:58 tonight!!! And, in terms of Lost Experience, we sort of felt it was a mixed bag, for the hardcore fans it was very satisfying, but we had a hard time making it work for the large audiences, and honestly we just didn’t really have the time this year with planning out the show, announcing the season ending, with everything else going on, to really engage in doing another Lost Experience, but that doesn’t mean we won’t do another one or revisit that between other Seasons of the show.

DAMON: Its really tricky because we want to do stuff that is really exclusive for the hardcore fans of the show, the people who really sort of pour their energy, their blood, their sweat, the ones who are sitting outside this room for hours and hours…. (crowd cheer)… I know who you are! But, as a result of us wanting to do that, that stuff has to be in canon, we can’t say like that had nothing to do with us and therefore you wasted your time going through that Lost Experience, so as Carlton said, it requires us to kind of be in full creative control of that, and not at the expense of the mothership. One of the awesome benefits I think of doing just 16 a year is that we’ll be able to refocus our time and energy in creating different medias, working on the game, mobisodes, other Lost Experience – we have a couple of cool book ideas that tie in with the show – and really supervise that stuff so its awesome and really worth your money, so that’s kind of where we stand on that.

MAN: Thanks guys.

DAMON: Thank you.

MAN: I just wanted to say, Richard Alpert, the guy that never ages, is an awesome character. Lot of potential. But…

DAMON: And he’s played by Nestor Carbonell, who’s actually working on another CBS show this year…

CARLTON: Its part of this problem a little bit, which is you make a show in the real world and people have other commitments and ideas and Harold will allude to that too, he had other projects and things going on and it was hard and took a while to arrange our schedule and the other artistic projects that Harold is involved in. And I think we’re going to have the same problem a little bit with Nestor, I mean he’s doing a show so we may be limited with how much we can use him until that show resolves.

DAMON: And we want that show to do very very bad…. (Crowd laughs)

MAN: No we don’t. He’s got so much potential, he’s a very very good actor. Anyway, Season 4, that’s what I was asking about, you answered this question the last time, and I’m gonna ask you the same question, please please answer it. What’s the title of the first episode. Please!

DAMON: What’s the title of what first episode?

MAN: The first episode of Season 4.

CARLTON: You know what, I can tell you honestly, we are in the middle of writing it right now, we do not have a title.

DAMON: Literally, we’re being honest with you and not cagey, we don’t know! Its written and there’s been several title ideas pitched out, one which we’re kind of favoring, but we’re not going to reveal anything.

MAN: No!

CARLTON: We don’t have it, we’ll make one up.

DAMON: We’ll work on it, we still have ten minutes.

MAN: Thanks a lot, the show is absolutely brilliant. Thank you guys.

WOMAN: The thing I wanted to ask is lots of different questions, there are a lot in the limelight right now, but what questions are we not asking that we ought to be?

(All laugh and clap)

DAMON: That’s kind of a (?) loop of questions…

CARLTON: Who’s in the coffin? (Rings bell quickly)

(All laugh and clap. A fan shouts an incoherent line from the crowd, possibly “Who’s in the coffin” and both writers ring their bells in response)

DAMON: If I can ask Harold, you’ve been watching the show since you left, and you obviously know as much about it as when you left (laughs)…

CARLTON: Who do you think is in the coffin, Harold?

DAMON: Yeah if you had to make a guess, who would you say is in the coffin?

HAROLD: Well I mean, this is just me guessing, and someone online had blown up the article Kate and Jack had, and it said that they had left behind a teenage son, so my guess is that, the person with the son, its probably Locke. (Crowd laughs) It’s just a guess.

DAMON: I think a very educated one.

CARLTON: Well we’ll see if Terry reads this online.

HAROLD: (Inaudible, possibly “New story”), Harold found dead.

(Crowd laugh)

DAMON: You know another question that I would be lining up to ask and therefore would be, who’s on that freighter out there, and what do they want out of the Island?

CARLTON: And then another question which I would ask which we’re not going to answer is OK Kate and Jack obviously got off the Island, did anybody else get off the Island?

DAMON: Oh oh oh, what about those skeletons from Season 1.

CARLTON: Oh yeah.

DAMON: What about those guys.

CARLTON: And what about Nikki and Paulo, are they really dead?

(Crowd laughs)

DAMON: Yup!

HAROLD: Is Penny going to be on the Island?

DAMON: Oh the public outcry when we killed them, to bring them back!

(Crowd laughs. A short pause follows from audio sources)

MAN: I’m going to ask you a very volatile question right now, Libby! We were told that we were going to get more of her in flashbacks and stuff, and there’s been a couple of hints that she possibly worked for DHARMA, its been theorized and stuff online, what do you have to say about the absence of Libby and are we getting more of her any time soon?

CARLTON: It is our intention to get to Libby’s story sometime this year and we think you will be very happy with me actually to finish that.

DAMON: You’re not barking up the wrong tree either with some of your speculative online questioning.

MAN: Thank you very much and keep writing.

WOMAN: Hi first I wanna say just thank you for everything, and my question is that one of my favorite characters on the show is Danielle Rousseau and we’ve been getting hints of her story and now she’s reunited with Alex, I just wanna know is she getting her own flashback any time soon?

CARLTON: We would like to do Rousseau’s flashback story, I’m not sure if we will do it this year or next year, but erm…

DAMON: There are important things revealed in that story, and they have to kind of sync up with something else…

CARLTON: Going on (rings bell). That’s enough.

DAMON: Barring unforeseen circumstances you’ll be seeing that story within the next year or two. Last question. Can we do more questions?

CARLTON: I know its a little late but it’ll keep.

WOMAN: Good evening. The question I have has to do with how you’re going to film the next three Seasons, I know normally since you’ve got 16 episodes per year, do you plan on speeding up filming and writing and just kind of holding back, or let things develop and kind of take their time.

CARLTON: The whole idea was to kind of take our time, the reason there’s 3 Seasons of 16 is to work on the stories, the process of making television is so quick, I mean we spent 10 days breaking the story and writing the finale, it was totally crazy we were working around the clock barely sleeping, and I think we believe with more time we can keep the quality high.

DAMON: Also I think what’s going to be difficult this year is that we’re going to have written through episode 14-15 before you guys have even seen the premiere.

CARLTON: Which means if we do something you guys don’t like we’re probably screwed.

DAMON: We’re sort of finding with that a little and I think that every one of you came today is because you wanna know ahead of time what’s coming up and we want to have events like Comic Con and podcasts, but at the same time they’ll be significant spoilers. If you want to you can find out about the first 10 episodes of Season 4 before even seeing the premiere. And of course there are people who want to turn to the last page of the book and its our job to try to make sure that the people who don’t want to get spoiled don’t get spoiled. Which while as cutsie as we are with the bells, we err on the side of not giving away too much because, about 85% of the people in this room wanted them, there’s some who want to go for the ride.

CARLTON: We were incredibly grateful for the fan community when it came to the finale, what a rebellion it was against people who were trying to spoil the finale. Thanks to you I think a lot of people got shut down, got the door slammed in their face. And I think people who did find out about the finale, it kind of ruined the experience for them. So hopefully we’ll count on you, our most avid fans, to help us police spoilers. We’re not the CIA, and obviously the story goes through 500 people’s hands and we’ve realized its virtually impossible to keep spoilers from getting out there, but you guys can help us by keeping them away from people who don’t want to see them.

DAMON: Wow that was like a public service announcement.

CARLTON: It was.

WOMAN: I just wanted to say thank you for making a very intelligent high-quality show.

CARLTON: Thank you.

DAMON: Thanks for coming.

CARLTON: We appreciate it.

MAN: Hi my name’s Aaron, I had a question about the Monster. Can I call it Cerberus? From the blast door map?

CARLTON: If you want.

DAMON: That is… on the blast door map, those things referred to as CV vents, Cerberus Vents, so yes the person who drew that map, Radzinsky first then Kelvin, did refer to it as Cerberus, although that might have just been the DHARMA Initiative’s name for it.

CARLTON: That’s one of its names.

DAMON: Aaron may I call you Cerberus? (Laughs) Continue, Cerberus.

AARON: It kind of seemed like it represents judgement, when it killed Eko, it seemed like Eko messed up, and even though he didn’t confess the way he was supposed to, it seemed like he was on the right path so why did he die, I wondered if that was going to be addressed on the show?

DAMON: What the Monster is, who made it if anyone did, what motivates it to do what it does is hopefully going to be definitively answered, at least in our minds its a good answer, but its one of those things like Kate’s plane which we’ve talked about before, you give the most definitive answer in the world and people are still like but there was microfilm inside it right!

CARLTON: Ultimately there are mysteries about the world of the show that will always remain mysteries, that’s the nature of life, the world, and that’ll be part of the show, so I can’t imagine we’ll come to a conclusion where every question you have, every mystery will satisfactorily be answered, but some of those mysteries are obtainable cause that’s the nature of the world that we live in and the world in our show, but we will want a satisfying ending, its not gonna be ten seconds of blank tape its…

DAMON: Its gonna be twenty seconds!

(Crowd laughs)

DAMON: Twice as mysterious.

CARLTON: Hopefully as the show continues the mysteries about the Monster will be answered, Cerberus.

DAMON: One final question.

CARLTON: And then we are going to show you the overdue piece of film.

WOMAN: That actually was.

DAMON: That was the last question!

CARLTON: All right so we’re…

DAMON: Before we get into this, an explanation, again just Harold came and braved the traffic of the 405 Freeway to get down here in the nick of time, so let’s give it up!

CARLTON: OK so since the Harold announcement was not completely revealed here, we wanted to give you something special, something no-one has seen before, something absolutely brand new and hopefully something that will fire your imaginations about what you’re gonna see in Season 4.

DAMON: So what’s really tough is we haven’t started shooting Season 4 yet, we don’t start for another four weeks.

CARLTON: Fortunately, we had an incredible circumstance, it came to our attention that this piece of film was discovered in a vault in a building Narvik, Norway that was scheduled for demolition and it got sent to us.

DAMON: It was basically a trimden like an old school trimden with all this film hanging in it, numbered.

CARLTON: Stuck together and spliced together.

DAMON: And once you see it you’ll understand why they called us, we restored it to the best of our abilities, the sound’s kind of shoddy, but what it means who knows, we’re showing it to you guys first.

CARLTON: But we’re also, yes, you guys are….

  1. Awesome info! Thanks Skip! I should have been working, instead I read the whole transcript.

  2. Glad to know that I’m helping to contribute to the throttled back productivity of the interweb. That’s up there on my list of goals to complete by the time I die.

    I’m most excited to get news that we will get backstory on Libby. Loose ends TPTB left there nag at my soul…
