Fox the Big Surprise at 'Lost' Panel

This year’s “Lost” Comic Con panel offered up few secrets of the show’s fifth season, but there were some surprises, including a visit from actor Matthew Fox.

Executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse fielded questions about the show’s extensive mythology from a packed 6,500-person audience.

According to the two producers, viewers will see a different story progression in season five than in seasons past, which relied heavily on flashbacks and flash-forwards. They didn’t elaborate much on the progression, saying they wanted to do something different for the fifth year.

Fans who asked questions received show-specific swag, including a T-shirt that read, "I Asked a Richard Alpert-related Question and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt," a season-one boxed set of "Heroes" (which Mr. Lindelof said was a better show than "Lost") and a massive jar of Dharma Initiative-branded ranch dressing.

Speaking of the Initiative, a man calling himself Hans Von Egan announced a sponsorship of the panel, with Mr. Lindelof and Mr. Cuse sporting large "Dharma Initiative" cups.

All of this led up to a "bootleg" video of a Dharma Initiative indoctrination video, as nothing has been shot for season five yet.

Some other things discussed:

--Vincent the dog will make a reappearance at some point in season five.

--Mr. Cuse’s favorite episode is "The Constant," while Mr. Lindelof enjoyed the season-one finale the most.

--The fifth season premiere will be similar to past season premieres, which dropped the viewer into the story without much explanation of time or setting.

They are so funny. Cool of Foxy to surprise the fan. Just saw the pic and he looks very tan and healthy. Is it February yet?
