Zero Days And Counting: LOST's Skeleton Key?

Lost-season-6SO excited for tonight's season premiere -- which, yes, we will be open threading right here starting at 9pm ET (honestly, I'll probably have the thread up and be here earlier than that, as I'm going to be watching last season's finale at 8pm to set the stage for the premiere at 9, so feel free to come on by early!). I'm quite literally counting the hours and can think of little else, people.

Stop looking at me like that! I do so have a life! Uhh, well, sort of.

Annnnyway! After the jump, I have an interesting tidbit from LOST executive producer Damon Lindelof to share...

According to Lindelof, there's a scene from 2004's pilot that we might want to pay particular attention to relative to the upcoming premiere, and the series as a whole: John Locke's discussion of backgammon with Walt:

Of the scene, Lindelof said:

“We can’t rewrite history and say that at the time the pilot was being constructed we were using phrases like “The Man In Black” and “Jacob,” but we can say that the overriding theme of The Island and what an endgame might look like — and that Locke was the character that was tapped into this almost instantly — was all sort of calibrated. Looking back on that scene, its intention at the time that it was written and its intention today is exactly the same, which is to basically set the stakes for the entire series. At the time that we wrote it, we didn’t think that there was going to be an episode two. At the time that we wrote it, it was a conversation about the good and evil internal in the people themselves. But obviously, as the show grew and blossomed out, that same conversation grew to encompass the nature of The Island and The Island’s affect on those people.”

Like, woah.

Be sure to also check out the always insightful Doc Jensen's discussion of the coming season over on his blog, and get your butt back here tonight for our ultra-mega-fabulous season premiere open thread! See you then! SQUEE!!

I rewatched last year's season finale over the weekend, and it's two hours, so you might want to start that at 7pm, not 8pm!

Sweetney

uhhh what are they showing at 8pm then? It's LOST, but not the premiere....

d'oh!

cindy

I think it's some sort of recap show, with highlights from every season.

Sadie

zomg. I just tweeted about that scene last night when I started rewatching Season 1.
