New Darlton interview in EW, posted at Lost Sightings. But here you all go. Beware spoilers, I haven't read this yet. But, as the title is "mind-blowing scoop"... it sounds dangerous!
Darlton in EW
Ok, some really interesting stuff in this, about the nature of the show. Sam G, when you pop by: maybe some good things for the "What TPTB Said" thread? There were so many goodies, I quoted a ton of them!!
A side-benefit of the strike:
CARLTON CUSE: If we were sitting down with you right now, and there hadn't been a strike, we would be in the middle of writing the finale. The entire season would have been done and the audience would have only seen two or three episodes. Now, we actually have an opportunity to react and adjust to how people are feeling about everything.
FFs are in chronological order (within a particular ep):
LINDELOF: There was originally a line in that episode where Sayid said, ''I've just returned from the Seychelles,'' which would have cleared all that up. But we lost it in editing because the scene went on for four minutes. When we're presenting you with a narrative, it's always happening in chronological order.
No alternate futures:
CUSE: We want the audience to believe that is THE future. We don't want people thinking, ''Well, since there are five iterations of this, I'm not going to invest in what's happening to the characters.''
No paradoxes (this might be bad for Charlie fans):
LINDELOF: We're not going to tell you that we're against bending the time/space continuum. We are very for it. Carlton and I are PRO time-space continuum bending! But we're ANTI-paradox. Paradox creates issues.
... CUSE: ... It was a tough story to break. But we adhere to our rule: no paradox.
CUSE: I can't believe you're telling Jeff about the god of wheat now! The entire second half of the fourth season is about the god of wheat! LINDELOF: Wasn't your nickname at Harvard ''the god of wheat?'' CUSE: No, it was god of rye. LINDELOF: You see how I get confused.
Spoilers therein: They say when we will know the identities of the rest of the O6. They say which questions will be answered this season and which won't (but don't give any answers!). I think this is one of the best reads about the show in a long, long time.
