SPOILER ALERT! After a long holiday weekend (capping off a long week of late-night shoots), the “LOST” crew was out and about early this morning. The news came courtesy former coworkers whose parking lot was commandeered as the production’s base camp.
The set was none other than Honolulu International Airport, which (as indicated by a “Welcome to Los Angeles” sign) was reprising its role as LAX. Several dozen extras were brought into the baggage claim area, and the large carousels were set in motion, delivering luggage to weary looking travelers. At least one Oceanic Airlines logo was spotted, nearly lost among other signs that would likely welcome specific passengers. And outside, vehicles were prepped with California plates.
All in all, it was a bustling airport scene, and one that strongly suggests what The Powers That Be hinted might unfold as Season 6 began: the safe arrival of Oceanic Flight 815 at LAX.
Indeed, expected on the set were Matthew Fox (Jack), Evangeline Lilly (Kate), Josh Holloway (Sawyer) and Naveen Andrews (Sayid). But the first hardworking actor sighted was none other than Daniel Roebuck, who played the hapless (and previously detonated) Dr. Leslie Arzt.
What does it all mean? Your guess is as good as mine. As reported Saturday on “The Transmission,” visiting fans from Spain and New York reported seeing Evangeline Lilly, Matthew Fox, Josh Holloway and Ken Leung working deep in the jungles of Kaneohe. That suggested scenes that picked up right where Season 5 left off, near the (former?) Swan station site.
But since we still don’t know the “when,” and are still fuzzy on the “where,” there’s no telling just how these apparently conflicting scenes fit into the bigger picture of “LOST.”
