INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
“They want answers, Jacob, not corks.”
If you watched Lost, you’ll get that reference. You’ll also want to check out this supposedly deleted scene from the first season of the ABC series in which Jacob (Mark Pellegrino) and the Man in Black (Titus Welliver, not Johnny Cash) have an exchange about the stranded survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 and their futures. The scene was screened at Comic-Con International in San Diego during the “Totally Lost: One Year Later” panel, with the intention of proving that series creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse knew what they were doing and where they were going from the start.
It’s all B.S., of course. The scene isn’t really from the first season, not the bits with Jacob and his pal, at any rate. It does give voice to a lot of the issues that fans had with the end of the series, however, and in an entertaining manner. Regular series director Jack Bender shot the thing a few weeks ago. Does it matter, though? Now you know the Man in Black’s real name!
