Anyone who followed the news coming out of this year’s Comic Con shouldn’t be surprised by this poster, but it’s nice to finally have the official version that can be zoomed in on and disected to within and inch of one’s life.
ABC has released the first official LOST final season poster (coming on the heels of the first official LOST season 6 promo). Everyone’s there. All of the present and former main cast members are all lined up awaiting their fate.
In order, those listed are: Faraday, Boone, Miles, Michael, Ana Lucia, Charlotte, Lapidus, Shannon, Desmond, Mr. Eko, Kate, Jack, Sawyer, Locke (or Locke’s back, to be more precise), Ben, Sayid, Libby, Sun, Jin, Claire, Hurley, Juliet, Charlie, Richard, Bernard, Rose and Vincent (the dog).
A few questions:
(1) The LOST team always has a purpose. ALWAYS. So do you think that the placement of some of the characters is important. Yes, it could have been done solely to save space, but I’m curious as to why some people are in the background and others are featured more prominently in the foreground. For example, we hear that Libby won’t be returning in season 6, so it makes sense that she shows up as smaller in the background. But Claire will (and is rumored to be appearing in every episode), yet she’s also in the background, while people like Michael (who hasn’t been confirmed as returning) is in the foreground. Perhaps I am putting way too much thought into this.
On a side note, I think we’re all pretty clear as to why Locke is the only character facing away from the front (ie. he’s not Locke anymore, but the Man in Black).
(2) Where is Walt? WAAAAALT?!!?! Where are you?! Walt is the only major cast member from any season who isn’t showing up in this poster (aside from some Others – like Tom). This is curious. Maybe the kid is growing up too fast, but surely they could have slapped an old promo photo of him on there. Michael’s on where. So where the heck is Walt?
Click on the poster to see a larger version. Lap it up. Even if it’s not much, ABC knows we’re going to devour all of the little morsels they give us until the premiere in 2010.
