Here’s a MediaBlvd Magazine interview with Lost Executive Producers: Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse
They talk about Season 3, and how our view of what we’ve learned about The Others so far might change by the end of the season.
This quote from Carlton Cuse really stuck out:
If we forced the storytelling, you would feel worse. Henry Gale was going to be in two episodes and the actor was so awesome that we ended up having him be in eight. But, the plan to discover a prisoner in the hatch and then have him turn out to be a significant member of The Others was always in play.
The way I read that, it sounded like “the prisoner in the hatch” (Desmond) is supposed to be a member of The Others… I have to assume this was a mistake, since they were talking about Henry Gale right before that.
