The Lost 10 Year Reunion took place this past weekend in Hollywood and the full event is now online. As part of the annual PaleyFest event, host Paul Scheer spoke with executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse as well as stars Josh Holloway (Sawyer), Yunjin Kim (Sun), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Ian Somerhalder (Boone), Maggie Grace (Shannon), Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond), and Malcolm David Kelley (Walt). It was a celebration of the 10 years that have passed since the premiere of the show, which helped changed the way the audiences watch and interact with TV. There were some spoilery revelations and many fun stories told.
For those would couldn’t be there, you can now watch the full event embedded below.
If you don’t have an hour and 15 minutes to spend, Entertainment Weekly has a great recap of the event highlighting the five biggest revelations. I’m going to quote the one I found the most interesting, but head there to read the rest.:
We’ll never learn who was in the outrigger that shot at Sawyer and co. in season 5
“I have to give you some level of satisfaction without actually answering the question — the Lost way,” Lindelof said. In fact, the scene’s script has the answer — “which is not the Lost way.” Ultimately, Lindelof and his team felt it would be cooler to let this remain a mystery — though they knew doing that would eventually come back to haunt them: “We said to each other, ‘Someone is gonna stand up and ask us about the outrigger [one day].’” Cuse added that “every question begets another question,” which leads to didactic and boring answers. “We wanted to tell an emotional story that showed what happened to the characters. We cared much more about what happened to them,” he said.
Lindelof did say, though, since the script page exists one day they might auction it off for charity. That would be pretty cool.
