Many Answers About the Show Lost

Mar 17 2014, 7:03am CDT | by

There were few dry eyes in the room as Lost's big bosses Damon LIndelof and Carlton Cuse faced fans for the first time since the iconic TV series went off the air three years ago and answered the big questions they have never addressed by :

Were they really dead the whole time?

What was the point of the whole show?

Here are the answers Damon and Carlton gave at tonight's PaleyFest event honoring the 10th Anniversary of the Lost premiere. (And by the way, the original plan was to screen theLost pilot, but that plan was scrapped out of consideration for the Malaysian Air tragedy. The first-season finale was aired instead.

On whether the characters were actually dead the whole time (Since the time the plane crashed): "No, no, no. They were not dead the whole time," Cuse said definitively, adding that he believes that some footage they showed at the very end of the series lead to much of the misunderstanding among fans.

"At the end of the series finale, [an ABC exec] thought it would be good to have a buffer between when you have the end of the show and when they cut to say, a Clorox commercial," Cuse explained. "We didn't have a lot of extra footage lying around, but we had footage of the plane wreckage on the beach," which they shot when the plane needed to be moved or it would have been washed out to sea. "We thought, let's put those shots at the end of the show and it will be a little buffer and lull. And when people saw the footage of the plane with no survivors, it exacerbated the problem."

But the characters definitely survived the plane crash and really were on a very real island. At the very end of the series, though? Yep, they were all dead when they met up in heaven for the final "church" scene.
