According to Digital Spy, Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof recently talked about what we can expect when Lost Season 3 returns in February:
Speaking to TV Guide, Lindelof revealed: “There are two bombs being dropped, one of which is a character bomb, and that will happen within the first three episodes after the break. And the other is a more significant story bomb, a game-changer, as it were, and that will happen shortly after.”
The theme hinted at in the season two cliffhanger will also return to “dominate” for the rest of the season. “We broke perspective off the island for the first time â€” at least that’s what we’re leading everybody to believe â€” and, certainly, that ball is in motion and rolling down the hill at a very fast rate,” added Lindelof. “It takes a couple of episodes to get up to speed, but the fact that the island may have been seen is pretty much the entire story arc of the second half of the year.”
I’m happy to hear that the rest of Season 3 will focus on the result of what happened in the Season 2 finale. I really enjoy the Desmond & Penelope love story, and the scene where the two men at the listening station called Penelope and said that they had “found it” (the island) was great.
I’ve heard a lot of complaints about the story from the Season 2 finale not being part of the first episodes of Season 3, so this should be great news to pretty much everyone!
Besides the information above, according to the source Damon also said that before the end of Season 3 we will find out why Locke was in the wheelchair, how Jack got his tattoos and what really happened when the hatch imploded.
