General Season 2 spoilers:

06/15 - With Ana-Lucia (Michelle Rodriguez) turning up alive, the chances Rose' husband is alive too are pretty big. Maggie Grace (Shannon) being cast in X-3 does not affect her position on Lost says ABC. Source: Ask Ausiello @ TVGuide
06/14 - Quotes from Lindelof and Grillo-Marxuach at a Lost convention: We won't kill sawyer. The theory of all the survivors being dead is not true. The plane did not crash by accident, it crashed for a very specific reason. But he dismissed speculation that someone aboard the plane caused the crash. What's in the hatch will have an effect on Locke. The rear section of the plane — and additional survivors — will be discovered during the second season. The people who kidnapped Walt, the young boy, are the "others" on the island. Source: The LA Times (Thanks E Buccieri for the tip.)
06/14 - I believe Mira Furlan (Rousseau) will be back but so far, not full-season contract... JIN IS ALIVE! ANd I hear he's getting an ever BIGGER part next season. one final note to those of you freaking out that Naveen Andrews is going to be written off: I really don't think Sayid dies. That is not the cast member I was talking about who's getting written off around October. Source: Kristin on E!Online
06/08 - Rodriguez's presumed-dead passenger will turn up very much alive on the island next season. There has been talk of a Lost CD, but nothing concrete at the moment. Source: Ask Ausiello @ TV Guide Online
06/07 - Josh Holloway will be back! I hear that first episode next season they are going DOWN the hatch, so hopefully we will finally SEE the light! Malcolm David Kelley will be back to work on Lost next season. But there are definitely issues with his rapid aging (remember, each season is only 40 days), so don't be surprised if a big twist is in the making. Someone wants of the show, and it's not certain it's a 'he'. Greg Grunberg's scene as the pilot was cut for time from the finale, but it'll appear on the dvd, coming out September 6. Source: Kristin on E!Online
06/07 - All footage in the trailer on oceanic-air.com is from last season. That site is actually is the brainchild of ABC and Disney … not the producers. Though that fake script page did come from the production office. So, although it definitely does have clues about the show, my advice would be to not put TOO much weight into anything. Still, there's a ton of great stuff on that site. Source: Kristin on E!Online
06/06 - According to Lost's publicist, the rumours about Samuel L. Jackson playing Bernard on Lost (started at the guest stars page on IMDB) are NOT true. Source: Ausiello @ TV Guide podcast
06/06 - Michelle Rodriguez has come aboard the second season of ABC's hit castaway drama, playing Ana-Lucia Cortez, another passenger on the doomed Oceanic Airlines flight 815. Source: Variety
06/02 - Sharp-eyed viewers may have noticed something about the people on the boat, but if not, [Josh] Holloway says, "There were twins, which I don't know if you could tell. They were identical twins, which was really spooky. There again, that wasn't emphasized." Source: Zap2it (Thanks E Buccieri for the tip.)
06/01 - Remember the fellow passenger Jack met in the airport cafe prior to boarding the doomed flight? You know, the one played by Michelle Rodriguez in the May 18 episode? Well, there's a big - no, make that huge - twist coming in Season 2 involving her. I can't say more than that. Source: Ask Ausiello @ TV Guide Online
05/30 - The Golden Globe nominated drama returns for a second season where the remaining survivors of Oceanic Flight #815 struggle to break free from the clutches of the deserted island. The band of castaways discovers new mysteries and fall victim to the unexplained forces that lie in wait. Jack's calm leadership and quick-thinking coupled with Kate's cunning spirit gives the group hope for an escape, but even the most well-intentioned heroes have secrets. This action-packed adventure brings out the very best and the very worst in the people who are lost. Source: ABC
05/26 - They survived on luck. They survived on instinct. But on the other side of the island, they will discover they're not the survivors they thought they were.

05/26 - Harold Perrineau said that the pirates who took Walt were "The Others". He also confirmed that Walt has powers. Source: Jimmy Kimmel Live (Thanks Matthew for the tip.)
05/26 - Lindelof: The words that Boone heard are definitely, "We're the survivors of Flight 815." That's also what Boone said, so it's up to the extrapolation as to whether or not his own words were being bounced back to him. Or is that transmission coming from somebody else claiming to be a survivor of Flight 815? [He also added] "If the season finale is about what they do to open up the hatch, I think it'd be fair to say that Season 2, at least in the beginning, functions on the axis of what they find inside. And how that revelation changes things." Source: TV Guide Online
05/25 - Jorge Garcia (Hurley) was on Z-100 radio in NY this morning and confirmed he will be back next season. Source: Z-100 (Thanks AJ for the tip.)
05/23 - [There will be a death in October.] Source: Kristin on E!Online
05/18 - Harold Perrineau revealed that the voice on the other end of the radio communication Boone made in the other plane will be dealt with next season. Source: ESPN Radio (Thanks Dano for the tip.)
05/17 - JJ Abrams reveals: "[Season 2] is very much another chapter in the story, and it's one of those things where you really don't wanna say anything, but...they've been there for 40 days, and they've been pretty reluctant, for obvious reasons, to venture out too much. If the first 40 days was about their arrival and them realizing that they're going to be there for a while, I'd say the next 40 days is more about their establishing a sense of society and of more permanence, and there are going to be specific story points that will give them very specific objectives that will be part of the overall arc of the season next year." Damon Lindelof says: "One of the really cool things, to me, is that we are going to be introducing new characters to the show. And it'll just get out who we've cast, because we're gonna start shooting the show in July. I think people's default position will be, "Oh, they're all people who we just haven't met yet," sort of in the chorus of, you know, meat socks, as we call them, the people in the background... Maybe some of these characters will come from the chorus and maybe they won't, but word will start to trickle out over the summer about who's joining the cast of Lost, and, more importantly, who's leaving the cast." Jorge Garcia said: "I'm coming back, I think. I mean, I'm alive at the end of this season, so I assume I'm coming back. I'm not a guy who just disappears in the crowd." Source: Kristin on E!Online
05/16 - Matthew Fox on the "did Jack marry Sarah or not": Although some fans may wonder if Jack bolted right before saying the fateful vows, Fox has another idea. "I think people walked away from that," he says, "feeling that that they did see the full wedding ceremony, and that they are married. But the really cool thing was like, holy s**t, now they flash back, and we realize that Jack's never mentioned anything. He doesn't have a wedding ring on. He's never mentioned anything about a wife." "So, somewhere between three and four years, maybe five years, before we meet him on the plane as our hero, this guy was married to a woman that he absolutely adored. So what the hell happened in the interim? How did that come to an end?" "A lot of the story for next year on Jack will be about exactly that same thing. What happened to the relationship?" Fox also wonders about Jack's motivation for marriage in the first place. "There was that scene at the pool with his dad," he says, "where he said, 'Am I marrying her because I saved her life? Am I taking that idea of commitment so far that I'm actually confusing love and adoration with commitment and with following through on saving somebody's soul? Am I confusing that line?" "So he does enter into that with questions. He's clearly conflicted and then ends up making leaps. So we'll see what happens, why it all came apart." Source: Zap2it
05/10 - Cocreator Damon Lindelof reveals that the transmission and its source will play one of the most important pieces of plot for season 2. Source: Entertainment Weekly
05/07 - So far, the focus has been on only 14 of the 48 crash survivors, but that'll soon change. "The population of the island will be shaken up," Abrams says, revealing he's now casting new second-season regulars. "Not everyone will be coming back, and other people will be stepping up. Also, the survivors have explored almost none of the island, so next year becomes more mission-driven. And the inevitable fractious aspects of society-building begin to arise." Source: USA Weekend (Thanks Bonnie for the tip.)
04/25 - Film actress Michelle Rodriguez ("The Fast & The Furious", "Resident Evil") will be joining the cast of ABC hit show "Lost" next season as a regular. Source: TV Guide Online
04/18 - I THINK someone is dying early next season. And I've heard the person already knows because of contract negotiations going on, and is none too pleased and driving something of a hard bargain. Source: Kristin on E!Online
04/08 - Early on, Jack found some skeletons and a pouch containing black-and-white rocks. Explain. ''The black-and-white stones have been a recurring theme in the show,'' says executive producer Damon Lindelof (e.g., Locke's favorite board game, backgammon, and the mysterious Black Rock). ''We know who those skeletons are, what their story was, and what they were doing with those stones. But that's a question we won't be answering this season.'' - - Charlie was hooked on heroin. Recently, Locke and Boone found heroin on a plane. Discuss. ''One of the things that has made Charlie's ability to kick the habit so easy is that he hasn't had any temptation,'' says Lindelof. ''Reintroducing temptation is part of our intent. The good news, for now, is that he doesn't know that the plane is out there.'' Source: Entertainment Weekly (Thanks Sienna for the tip.)

'Lost' to Get New Mysterious Castaway

There's someone else on the island. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will join the cast of ABC's "Lost," the network announced earlier this week. The actor will play Emeka, "a mysterious man whose presence on the island — and intentions — will be revealed" early in the upcoming second season, ABC said in a statement.

The London-born Adewale's credits include the films "Congo" and "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls." He landed two NAACP Award nominations for his role on HBO's "Oz."

"Lost," the runaway hit series that stars Matthew Fox, chronicles the survivors of a plane crash on a remote island.

The show's second season premieres Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. (ET).

'Lost' and 'Housewives' plan major revelations

By Hal Boedeker
Knight Ridder News Service

Last season's "Desperate Housewives" finale left Susan (Teri Hatcher, right) held hostage at gunpoint by an unstable boy.

Viewer alert: Major revelations are coming soon. Television's two most talked-about series, ABC's "Lost" and "Desperate Housewives," plan to quickly answer questions raised by their cliffhangers last season.

"Lost," filmed on O'ahu, will plunge into the mysterious hatch in its first episode, series co-creator Damon Lindelof says.

"You will see everything that's in there. What is in there will change everything about how they live on the island," Lindelof says. "We're erring on the side of giving away too much as opposed to being too vague."

On "Desperate Housewives," the first episode will open by showing what happens when plumber Mike (James Denton) goes into the house where agitated teen Zach (Cody Kasch) is holding Susan (Teri Hatcher) hostage, series creator Marc Cherry says.

The producers met with TV critics as the Television Critics Association honored "Desperate Housewives" as program of the year. "Lost" earned prizes as best new program and top drama. Both series start second seasons in September.

The hatch looms as the main topic on "Lost," and producers plan a bold revelation.

"I can guarantee you there will be people (viewers) who do not like what they find in the hatch," Lindelof says. "We found this door in the 10th episode of the show, and 13 episodes later they finally open it up. So what's inside has to be something big."

Although the contents can be construed as science fiction, Lindelof rules out a few possibilities.

"There aren't aliens in there," he says. "There isn't a time-travel portal. They aren't going to find a ship they blast off into space."

The ill-fated voyage of the raft forms another major plot. A band of vicious strangers set the craft afire and seized the boy Walt (Malcolm David Kelley) as last season closed. Three other castaways — Michael (Harold Perrineau), Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and Jin (Daniel Dae Kim) — were left struggling for survival in the ocean.

"If they will reconvene with the main group becomes the story fodder of the first seven or eight episodes," Lindelof says.

The show will continue to examine characters' lives through flashbacks to before the plane crash put them on a remote island. Those plots will include more on the marriage of Jack (Matthew Fox); the injury that put Locke (Terry O'Quinn) in a wheelchair; the rock-star existence of Charlie (Dominic Monaghan); the fugitive past of Kate (Evangeline Lilly); and the lottery lifestyle of Hurley (Jorge Garcia).

Michelle Rodriguez joins the cast as a passenger who was in the tail section and who survived elsewhere on the island. The recurring numbers — on the flight, hatch and lottery ticket — will become "the driving and fundamental plot point of the second season," Lindelof says. Viewers will know how the plane crashed by season two's end, he promises.

But Lindelof stresses that people are the main element. "The island just serves as a conduit to tell character stories," he says. "No one is really watching the show for the answers to those mysteries. They're watching to see: Will Kate and Jack hook up?"

"Desperate Housewives" creator Cherry clears up a lingering uncertainty: Rex (Steven Culp), husband of Bree (Marcia Cross), definitely is dead.

"There was a scene in the finale which made it really, really clear," he says. "Because we were long, I cut it. I thought the phone call (from the doctor to Bree) did it. I did not mean to confuse the fans in any way."

Alfre Woodard, who's a new regular, plays a housewife with a dark secret. "Her character was a concert pianist," Cherry says. "She's going to be involved in something pretty gothic on the show — pretty dark and spooky."

Cherry previews what's ahead for the other wives:

Susan finds out the truth about Mike's relationship to Zach.

Lynette (Felicity Huffman) joins the work force in a surprising way. Joely Fisher will play one of her bosses.

Pregnant Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) has to convince Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) that the baby is his and finds a way to do it.

Bree has a battle royal with her mother-in-law (Shirley Knight) over Rex's funeral.

Edie (Nicollette Sheridan) will begin a romantic relationship in the second episode that frustrates Susan.

'Lost' loses Shannon
`Who' was no surprise, but `how' was a killer


Maureen Ryan

When is a television event not such a big event? When the much-hyped death on a top show is of a character that won't be missed much.

Since last spring, fans of ABC's "Lost" have known that a character on the popular show would expire during fall sweeps. And the identity of the woman who would die was revealed by online gossips weeks ago.

Yes, the character killed on "Lost" on Wednesday night was a woman; and, as online gossips had predicted, it was Shannon, who was played by Maggie Grace.

Shannon wasn't a lucky lady.

Last season, her stepbrother Boone died on the island, and on Wednesday's episode, her boyfriend, Sayid, declared his undying love for her seconds before a new character, Ana-Lucia, mistakenly shot Shannon.

Ana-Lucia had thought Shannon was one of the island's murderous "others."

If the "Lost" folks could keep the next death a secret, now that would be a surprise.

Season 2 Spoiler's

Post by destinyros2005 » 04/02/06 14:34

From: Watch with Kristin Column

BIG SPOILER:

1. On Lost, we find out that the leader of the Others (aka Him) is Jack's father. Yes, he's alive. And turns out, he's also Locke's brother. Meanwhile, there will indeed be two deaths before the season ends. Don't read if you don't want to know! In a bloody standoff between the Losties and the Others in the season finale, two characters we know and love are killed by Henry Gale: Locke and Charlie.

Lost Rocks My World! Okay, so this isn't exactly news. But how mind-blowingly fantastic was this week's ep? I had goose bumps on top of goose bumps on top of Sawyer (wait, that was a dream), especially the discovery of that map on the hatch door!

"The beauty of it is, the door goes back up and [Locke] can't access the thing anymore, so for the next two episodes, he's just trying to remember what it is he saw," Damon revealed. "It's such a huge piece of 'Wait a minute!' in sort of the spirit of Locke as a man of faith being given instructions from the island. This thing that only he can see."

Turns out that supercool black-light reveal is a major plot point that carries on through the rest of the season. "Oh yeah, big time," Damon said. "I mean, it plays huge in the finale, and even in episodes 21 through 24. Twenty-one is an episode that is very much on the sort of fundamental axis of that map, and it's a Locke and Eko story, which is going to be awesome. [Executive Producer] Carlton [Cuse] and I wrote it. That episode is just called '?' because that is the symbol Locke remembers from the map."

Okay, so, Eko, Locke, Damon, Carlton, map? Could it get any better?

Mind you, this map business was hardly the only topic Damon covered. As you message boarders know, before he and I spoke this week, I asked for your input on what questions you'd like to know, and I was able to tackle the most popular burning queries regarding our favorite islanders. Here's what I learned:

1. Someone's Having Sex: While answering a question many of you wanted to know--whether there are any gay characters on Lost--Damon slipped in a little juicy scoop of some upcoming jungle lovin': "All I can say is Lost is a remarkably chaste show, considering that any other group of people on an island for two months would be, basically, screwing like bunnies," he said. "And, you know, Sayid and Shannon are the only people who've made love since the crash. That is going to change by the end of the season. But it's all boy-girl action for now. For now!" The biggest remaining question? Did he intentionally or unintentionally leave out Jin and Sun?

a d v e r t i s e m e n t

2. Kate and Jack, Sitting in a Tree... Good news for you "Kack" fans! "Things are actually going to heat up a little bit between Kate and Jack in episode 19, which is Rose's and Bernard's flashbacks," Lindelof said. "That's a fun story that is very much sort of Kate bouncing back toward Jack now as we go into the finale." Breathe, "Skate" fans, breathe.

3. A Lostie Is Found: Damon (who, by the way, has stellar taste in television, including a love of Prison Break) also happens to be a fan of 24 and, like us fans, got a kick out of seeing his MIA Desmond [Henry Ian Cusick] coming face to face with Kiefer Sutherland in last week's episode. "He was holding a gun and saying, 'Don't move, or I'll shoot him.' It was the exact same dialogue!" As for the casting of Malcolm David Kelley (Walt) as a kidnapped boy on My Name Is Earl, Damon muses, "Hey, at least we didn't kidnap him...Oh, wait. We did." Regardless, when asked the status on all the MIAs (Walt, Michael, Desmond), Damon said only, "Desmond will be back. And that's all I can say." Hey, I'll take it.

4. Sun Is a "Dirty Little Whore": Okay, so, maybe I'm the one who called her that (all in good fun, of course), but Damon played along. "She is! She is a dirty little whore," he laughed. "No, I think what's really great about that story, and obviously we talked to Yunjin [Kim] a lot about it because as an actress she needs to know, like, 'What am I playing here? Did I sleep with this other guy?' So, I think it's a credit to her nuanced performance that your take-away as an audience member is like, 'Did she just lie to Jin's face?!' I mean, the episode is called 'The Whole Truth.' But what's so exciting to me is that for people who say nothing ever happens on this show, you need only look at Sun and Jin and where those two were in the pilot, where he slaps her hand, and where they are now. And those two are going to be very active in the finale. We've got some cool stuff cooked up for them."

5. The Clues Do Mean Something: Many of you fans wanted to know whether the Easter eggs and hidden "clues" that we online fans obsess over incessantly actually mean something. "I don't spend a lot of time on the Web anymore," Damon admitted, "because, you know, unfortunately Web chatter can be overwhelmingly negative, and it gets in my head. It was so much fun when I was reading about shows I wasn't writing! But people will come up to me and say, 'I saw this. Does this mean anything?' and I'd say that 90 percent of the things that people mention to me are intentional."

From bubu: What did Damon give you?
One hell of a shock! Here's the truth: I did know Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros were being killed off sometime this season (hence, my tease on the Vine show about dos muertos), and I had an inkling one of them might go on Wednesday, but I had no idea (a) that both would be killed that night, (b) that Michael would do it, (c) that Michael would shoot himself or (d) that it would be one of the best shocks ever. So, after suffering a mild heart attack, I immediately emailed Damon Lindelof this dainty message: "Holy s--t. I think I just crapped my pants. That was unbelievable. Did not see that coming!" The following day, Damon sent me a beautifully wrapped package with a nice big bow on top. Inside? A 24-pack of Quilted Northern Super Absorbent. Yes, toilet paper, my friends. The attached note read: "Dear Kristin, We are honored that our little show caused you to crap your pants. Please accept this small token of our appreciation. Big hugs, Damon." And oops, I did it again.

From Helga: Is Michael coming back next season?
You can get scoop on that in my new fancy Vine show! Just click on the video clip box below.

From bellini: Why did Ana and Libby die?
Inside sources tell me that Cynthia Watros was planned as a one-season thing from the very beginning. So, her death was planned all along. Michelle Rodriguez was not planned all along, from what I hear. However, her death had nothing to do with rumored "bad behavior" or the DUI arrests.

From marvinlee: How did ABC keep those deaths under wraps? I, for one, love that I was shocked! It was huge!
I gotta admit, I loved being shocked, too. It was so much more fulfilling than Shannon's death, when we all pretty much knew it was coming (thanks to some big ol' blabbermouth be-yotch whose name sounds like Ve-yotch). And I love that ABC's promos didn't ruin the surprise either, which Damon says his crew requested. "We said please do not say there is going to be a death tonight. No 'one of them will go' or 'watch the last three minutes.' None of that. We don't want to make a big deal of it. We want to just let the audience experience it." If you ask me, it was so much better not knowing. And I know some of you might disagree, but I'd gladly share my present from Damon and foot the bill to clean your upholstery.

From nvr01: Lost! Is Libby dead?
No
...t yet.
From nobody: Oh my gosh, Lost! Such a surprise and so nice to be somewhat spoiler free. Now, spoil us!
Oh my gosh, Nobody. I know you! Here's the big spoiler I'll offer you on Lost: The finale airs May 24. I know very little else other than what Damon Lindelof tells me: The finale is "a battle between faith and reason on the same playing field, where it all began." I have no idea what that means, but the hairs on my arms are standing up!

From drmcqps: Lost: It all began on the plane, didn't it?
Ohhh, snap! I have no idea if that's what he meant, but it's a good theory!

From drmcqps: Lost: Will we know what ? = ??
Yes. And it will be 2 good + 2 be = 4gotten.

Deaths Increase on 'Lost'

The embattled "Lost" band lost one more of its own while yet another bunker and more about the Dharma initiative came to light on the ABC drama.

Spoiler alert: Those who have yet to watch Wednesday's episode are advised to stop reading.

Last week's fatal shooting of Ana Lucia Michelle Rodriguez) and wounding of Michael (Harold Perrineau) and Libby (Cynthia Watros) were discovered. Michael, the shocking culprit, pinned the attacks on "a guy" assumed to be the now-escaped prisoner, Henry Gale (Michael Emerson).

Physician Jack (Matthew Fox) tried to help the mortally injured Libby, using her need for heroin to force Sawyer ( Josh Holloway) to reveal the location of the drugs — and the guns — he had secreted away.

Meanwhile, Mr. Eko (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) followed a dream that commanded him to join Locke (Terry O'Quinn) in searching the island for the "question mark."

The quest took the pair to a downed small plane that held the body of Eko's brother, a priest. Following Locke's own telling dream, Eko scaled the cliff above the wrecked plane — and realized the craft punctuated a question marked etched in the ground.

Beneath the plane was a sunken chamber. Smaller than the first one discovered, it looked like a couch potato's delight filled with multiple TV screens and easy chairs.

But the screens were providing chilling surveillance of the airline-crash survivors back in the main bunker. An "orientation" tape found by Eko provided a few more tantalizing details about the mysterious Dharma.

According to the tape, the small bunker dubbed "the Pearl" is a monitoring station used to observe "the activities of participants in Dharma initiative projects" who are unaware they are being watched. Those in the Pearl don't need to know the experiment's nature, the tape says.

The find make Locke doubt the value of adhering to the ritual of punching a set of numbers into a computer but reinforces the task's importance for Eko.

Libby dies with Hurley (Jorge Garcia) at her side, after gasping out "Michael" but no more.

The character is gone but will not be forgotten, the series' producers told TVGuide.com, with more about Libby and her past to be revealed next season in the flashbacks that are the show's hallmark.

Island Fever

This season, 'Lost' had its share of setbacks and frayed nerves, but it's still the coolest show on TV. NEWSWEEK hits the beach for the wild finale.


By Marc Peyser

May 22, 2006 issue - To get to the set, you have to drive 45 minutes north of Honolulu, and you have to know where you're going. There's no sign—they don't call it "Lost" for nothing—just a red flare stuck in a dirt road past some pineapple and coffee fields, along with a note: BASE CAMP. It's 7:30 on a drizzly May morning, and the cast is rehearsing a funeral on the beach. There are five graves. The two most recent are open, and contain corpses of Ana Lucia and Libby, wrapped in gray flannel. As usual on any TV show, a two-minute scene takes forever to film. The rain doesn't help. In between takes, Josh Holloway (who plays Sawyer) does push-ups on a grave.

Evangeline Lilly (Kate) goes "10-1"—set talk for a bathroom break—then reads a Christian self-help book. Daniel Dae Kim (Jin), Dominic Monaghan (Charlie) and Jorge Garcia (Hurley) trade stories about their most embarrassing childhood moments—Monaghan's concerns a dirty diaper at the zoo. When the rain stops around 9 a.m., the actors are in such a hurry to finish, they just throw their umbrellas onto Ana Lucia's corpse. No one seems to notice the rainbow glowing just over the ocean. Or the fact that, thanks to an earthquake in the South Pacific, the area is under a tsunami watch.

Then again, dodging big waves is nothing new for "Lost." Since its debut last season, the ABC drama has established itself as the most creative and daring show on network television. In an era of procedural dramas—the McMystery franchises "CSI" and "Law & Order" and their many clones—that are built to rake in cash through syndication, "Lost" dares to tell an intricate, sprawling story that mashes up religion, sci-fi and existentialism with more than a dozen flesh-and-blood characters. The show won an Emmy in its maiden season and has spawned the kind of rabid fandom not seen since the heyday of "The X-Files." But success has come with some risks—the tsunami lurking behind the rainbow.

Viewership is down 20 percent in the second half of this season—when are people going to realize how boring "American Idol" is this year?—despite a raft of tie-ins, including an online clue hunt, a novel "written" by a crash victim and free streaming video. The cast is battling its own strain of island fever, brought on by the paparazzi, the isolation and the pressure of living up to expectations—not to mention the occasional run-in with the cops. To a person, the actors all say they love living in Hawaii and acting in the coolest show on TV. But during NEWSWEEK's exclusive visit to the set during the filming of the finale, you could sense the other side of paradise. "It's been a taxing season, to be honest," says Monaghan. "We're not the new, big hit show now. We're not shocking people like we used to. The natural transition is to not be as big as we used to be. It's tough, man."

"Lost" started simply enough as a show about a plane crash and its survivors—it was actually conceived as a dramatized version of "Survivor." But this year it virtually reinvented itself. The castaways discovered more survivors who crashed on a different part of the island, a nasty band of bushmen called "the others" and an underground bunker with a computer that inexplicably requires six numbers (4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42) to be input every 108 minutes. "Lost" is chock-full of eerie, seemingly unexplained phenomena, and the finale will clear some of them up. "You'll be able to do a lot of speculating and theorizing about what exactly is going on," says executive producer Carlton Cuse. But it wouldn't be "Lost" if the show didn't stir up as many mysteries as it solves. The producers are so nervous about guarding their new secrets, they've given the very last scene a code name—"challah," as in the Jewish bread that's full of twists. They haven't even told the cast what's going to happen.

So, do you wanna know what we know about the finale? Skip this paragraph if you don't—though it's not as if we could solve the whole "Lost" riddle. But here are some tidbits. "We are going to tell you why the plane crashed," says Cuse. "We're going to explain what happens if you don't push the button. And we're going to resolve the Michael-and-Walt story." (Michael's son, Walt, was kidnapped by "the others" in last year's season finale and has been missing ever since.) Desmond, the enigmatic guy originally discovered in the hatch, also reappears, and he's not in good shape, though he gives the survivors fresh hope for escape. Just as last year's finale expanded our scope of the island's boundaries, this year's will expand its relevance. "There is something else that is reverberating on our planet that is directly linked to this island," says Monaghan. "You begin to understand that what is happening there has a significant butterfly effect in the rest of the world." One more thing: we think another character is going to die, or come close. It's just a hypothesis, based on the fact that when we asked Michelle Rodriguez (Ana Lucia) to guess which character would die after Libby, she said: "I can't do that, 'cause I know." Then she clammed up.

It's just a hypothesis, based on the fact that when we asked Michelle Rodriguez (Ana Lucia) to guess which character would die after Libby, she said: "I can't do that, 'cause I know." Then she clammed up.

But it's not just about the work. The actors are also fans of the show. Many of them have their own theories about the island (see interactive above). They often watch the show together—whichever character is featured in that week's flashback hosts the viewing party. "I've never watched a show as religiously as I've watched this, and I've never enjoyed one that I've been involved in as much," says Terry O'Quinn (Locke). O'Quinn is one of the few actors who don't like to speculate about the show, even about the most basic questions, like how Locke became a paraplegic. "When the question is answered, the answer will be disappointing—it's the question that's fun," he says. "He's a mysterious character, and that's what makes him compelling."

Besides, O'Quinn is just too damn busy to study anything beyond that week's script. As the season wound down, the cast was shooting three or four episodes simultaneously, sometimes working 20-hour days. They had to squeeze in our interviews during lunch or in the few minutes between scenes. Lilly stood on the side of a dirt supply road getting pushed farther and farther into the bush by equipment trucks. Fox—the cast calls him "Foxy"—grabbed a few minutes in a clearing behind the beach where the extras wait, next to the Porta Potti. They were all unfailingly nice and upbeat about their show. (Except for Naveen Andrews, who was said to be "not feeling well" and declined to be interviewed. Wait a minute. Surely they're not going to bump him off next!)

Still, you could tell that the cast was exhausted—Daniel Kim and Perrineau answered their trailer doors in their underwear because they had to sacrifice nap time to chat—and that they're starting to get on each other's nerves. "It's tough being involved in a shoot with a large cast," says Monaghan, sitting in his trailer, where the floor is piled with FedEx envelopes filled with fan mail. "Just the sheer politics can drag you down. So-and-so is not getting screen time. So-and-so is not showing up on time. So-and-so isn't behaving well on set. That's the toughest thing—coming home and going, Well, I behaved OK, but three or four people didn't." Despite mixed emotions, Monaghan brought a camera to the set to take pictures of his castmates, like a kid on the last day of school. "We're like brothers and sisters," says Lilly. "There are days when you want to thank them for being in your life, and there are days when you want to punch them in the face."

You'd better behave on "Lost"—no network TV show has ever killed off so many major characters so early in its run. For the record, the producers insist they didn't kill Ana Lucia and Libby because Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros, the actresses who play them, were arrested in December for DUI. "The truth is that we had this plan for Ana Lucia last year when Michelle met with us. She was, like, 'I want to do the show for one year,' so we put this plan in motion independent of her getting a DUI," says Cuse. "And the Libby thing was just a sort of twist that we felt elevated the scene to another level." Still, the actors know they're vulnerable—in an early version of the pilot, the producers had planned to kill Jack and changed their minds only when Stephen McPherson, now the president of ABC Entertainment, talked them out of it. Do the actors worry about their fates? "Sure, I'll be out of a good job," says O'Quinn. "I don't think there's any person on this show who is not expendable. If I said they didn't have the nerve to kill me, I'd be some kind of fool, wouldn't I?"

Forget about Locke or Jack or Ana Lucia—the really big question is, how will "Lost" end? Will we ever learn the secret to the island? The hatches. The numbers. The Dutch company that apparently ran a psychiatric experiment on the island 25 years earlier. The chance meetings so many characters had before the crash. Will all the pieces of the puzzle fit, or will "Lost" fall apart under the weight of its own mythology, like "Twin Peaks"? If the producers have their way, you'll get answers in the next three or four years, before the story lines and mysteries spin out of control. "This story is meant to end—people want to see the final chapter," says Cuse.

But in the meantime, they warn fans not to try to connect every plotlet. For instance, it was actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's idea, not the writers', for Eko to write Scripture on his stick, so those entries probably aren't very significant. Ditto for some of the flashback crossovers. Some are clearly important, such as Jack's dad's relationship with Ana Lucia. But others—like the time Kate's mom waited on Sawyer in a diner—are merely a wink at the audience. "We never promised that there would be a unified-field theory of 'Lost'," says Damon Lindelof, who created the show with J. J. Abrams ("Alias," "M:i:III"). "You'll get many small answers along the way, and ultimately you will understand this island, but all those answers might not necessarily be reduced to a simple one-sentence explanation." Until then, all you conspiracy theorists—just enjoy the trip, and get lost.
