DarkUFO has managed to get his hands on a whole bunch of promo photos of the season 5 cast. Check them out before they get taken down… Click here
I’ve got one theory. There were 324 people on Flight 815, according to the Oceanic 6 there were only 8 survivors. 324-8 = 316, or the number of bodies that would need to be on the plane that was “found” in the trench. However you would imagine that Widmore would have put 324 bodies in the plane because he didn’t expect/want any of the survivors to get off the island. Is that what 316 refers to? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Over the past couple of weeks there have been several shorter promos for season 5 each of which included a little bit of new footage which we had not seen previously. So what new snipits have been uncovered, keep reading to find out.
While its not a new shot, just one I hadn’t screencapped in the previous promos, we again see Charlotte with her nose bleeding, possibly related to why she’s no longer listed as one of the primary cast. We also see Desmond telling Penny that everyone of the island is in danger. We hear (but don’t see) Jack saying that they need to protect the people that they left behind, and Hurley saying “people are trying to kill us”. Sayid and Hurley arrive at an apartment building in the same 4WD seen in the last promo. Alpert is telling Locke that “the only way to save the island is to get your people back here”. Desmond running off, with Penny asking his where he’s going. And lastly another look at the explosion that looks like its going to wipe out a couple of the background losties.
Nothing too much in this next promo, just another couple of shots of Locke falling.
A couple of very interesting bits in this third promo. We hear Dan say “I know what’s happening”, right before we see Ethan emerge from the bushes pointing a gun at Locke. There someones clock that flips over to 8:15, and a mystery baby being held by someone who may be wearing Dharma clothes. There is also another angle of Locke’s fall. Sawyer screaming “run” (probably as the flaming arrows start falling from the sky).
We get a slightly extended view of the explosion we’ve already seen in the other promos. We then see Sawyer again trying to get in a door… looks a little like the external door to the Swan hatch, but that can’t be possible, right? The last shot is of Juliet and Sawyer who are shielding their eyes from possibly another “discharge”. Initially I thought this might have just been the footage of them on the beach from when Ben moved the island, but looking at the background it definitely seems to be night time (which it wasn’t when the island was moved.)

So I had planned to post about four of the most recent (short) Lost promos which have a few small bits and pieces that weren’t in the longer promos that we’ve already seen. I’ve taken the sceen-caps, but I don’t really feel like writing about them tonight, so I’ll save that and do it sometime over the weekend (I promise).
To hold you over here is a full cast promo shot, and even though Rebecca Mader (Charlotte) doesn’t appear to be part of the “permanent” cast for next season she is still in the photo.
UPDATE: Just saw this mentioned briefly on another site, take a close look at Faraday’s left foot…or the lack there of. Don’t believe me? I’ll post a close up later. It definitely looks like its been “photoshopped” though as the leg of his pants is in front of the tree branch which itself is about a metre in front of Faraday. How odd… maybe that why ABC has been asking sites to take down the high res version…
Aside from the discussion of several promos, I’m also planning to write about the 2-min s5e01 promo that was released a couple of days ago (early access was given to those participating in “Dharma Special Access”), and I’m also going to get back to analysing the Marvin Candle/Pierre Chang comic-con video.
The second full length promo for season 5 was released a couple of days ago during Grey’s Anatomy, and a little alter it was also made available online. The promo is a joint venture of sorts between “The Fray” and ABC, and is being used to promote both Lost and The Fray’s new single “You found me”. While some of the scenes shown were also in the first promo, there is still a bunch of new stuff to go over. The full video is attached so you can check it out at your leisure.
First of the ‘new’ bits is Hurley sitting at a table, probably in the house that we’ve already seen in his flash forwards. There is a quick shot of Kate holding Aaron. We get a close up of Locke’s eye, which zooms out to show him flat on his back (not sure if this is new or not). We get another angle of Faraday’s confrontation with the person in the hazmat suit, this time more from the perspective of the person in the suit.
We see Sayid and Jack having a fight, and Sayid appears to have a n oxygen mask around his neck, so this could possible take place after the scene of Hurley helping Sayid out from the last promo, which itself is possibly connect to some of the other shots in this promo. After a few flashes of Desmond (who wasn’t in the first promo), we see a couple of the losties still on the island (is it Scott or Steve?), and Miles notices a bomb which appears to be attached to a trip wire (the type of traps that Rousseau used), theres and explosion and Miles dives away. Could this be the end of Scott/Steve (which ever one isn’t dead). Just before the explosion there is also the first flash of the “Ajira Airways” logo on the screen.
During the new season 5 promo (will post about it later) a logo for Ajira Airways flashes up a couple of times, the sites asks for an email address, says its launching January 21 (same as Lost) and has an ABC disclaimer in the footer (view source). I wonder what it all means, could it be the beginning of a “better” ARG to lead into Season 5? Click Here.
So despite saying that the ARG would continue on December 19, it appears to have started up again a month early. The latest email says that individual dossiers for each participant can now be downloaded from the “Dharma wants you” website. The ‘dossier’ is just a two page pdf, first page is a certificate saying you’ve completed the program, and the second page is your results from the tests (I actually did much better in some than I thought). In the email Hans Van Eeghen also announces that due to the world financial crisis all the higher level Dharma representatives have “gone missing”, causing them to “abandon their ambitious plans”. As a result they’ve “sold the Dharma Initiative to the television show LOST” (I’m sorry, but thats just lame…). He goes on to say that exec producers Lindelof and Cuse will be in contact with their future plans for the Dharma Initiative… Maybe they’ll tell us why this years ARG sucked so hard.
Good summary of the Q and A panel that executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse took part in during the Screenwriters Expo over the weekend, they discuss how the show began, the path that its taken and where it might end up. Read more
Walt goes to tell Locke that it wasn’t him who poisoned Michael. As Locke is reassuring Walt, he grabs Walt’s arm and Walt freaks out a bit and pulls away. He says “don’t open it, don’t open it Mr Locke, don’t open that thing”. But Walt doesn’t even know about the hatch.
