October 4. Feels like an eternity from now, doesn't it? Especially when you consider how long it's been since the world of Lost was turned on its already incredible, confounding head in the May season finale.

At least you can now purchase the Season Two DVD. You can also look over responses from various members of the cast to questions readers of USA Today submitted. Here they are:

Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond)
Q: Desmond said, "We are in a bloody snow globe.' What did he mean by that?

A: "He said that to Jack while sitting on the beach after he'd been sailing, trying to get off the island for nine or ten days. Each time he got sucked back into the vortex of the island. He meant that we're in our own little universe. This little island is it. We're stuck in the middle of nowhere."

Matthew Fox (Jack)
Q: One of the biggest flashback mysteries was Christian Shepherd's (Jack's father) argument with a blond Australian woman in the episode Two for the Road. Christian wanted to see his "daughter" and the woman would not let him in her house. Wild speculation followed and most people believe Claire could be Jack's half sister. Will there be any more information revealed this season?

A: "I have no doubt that Claire is Jack's half sister. Trust me - the people that are creating this story do not throw (stuff) like that around lightly. He knocked on a door and a woman said, 'You're not being a part of her life. I want you out of her life.' People who pay really close attention to the show know that that woman is Claire's mother. And that's why Christian ended up going to Australia. That was put there for people to think that specific thing and so therefore I think that we will find out that that is absolutely true and in fact that her child is Jack's nephew. In my mind, this is a slam dunk!"

Terry O'Quinn (Locke)
Q: Will the third season see more of the "omnipotent Locke," the "easily manipulated Locke" or perhaps a side we haven't seen before?

A: "I don't think they're going to go back; it's an evolution. Locke and I were frustrated last season. He thought he was seeking the meaning of life, but then found this thing where he had to push this button every few minutes, which wasn't very satisfying. He's got to move on. He's got to find his place in this family. He's looking for someone else to acknowledge him in such a way that will define him to himself."

Josh Holloway (Sawyer)
Q: I am a Lost fan from Norway and Sawyer is my favorite character. My question is do you think Sawyer will ever find out who the REAL Mr. Sawyer is?

A: "I hope so. I hope they answer that. I want to see where that plays out. I want to see him face that guy. Maybe it's the bearded guy (Mr. Friendly) on the island. There are probably lots of interesting twists to come in the Sawyer flashbacks."

Daniel Dae Kim (Jin)
Q: Which role (besides your own) would you like to play if you had the opportunity to pick?

A: "Good question. I like different sides of a lot of characters. Locke has a very fantastic mysterious side. Eko has this spiritual side to him. And Jack has this conflicted heroism. And I love the character I play too!"

Jorge Garcia (Hurley)
Q: "If Lost were a reality show, which character do you think would still be standing (not voted off) on the last episode and why?"

A: "I have no idea. It's stupid to say Hurley, but why wouldn't I vote for myself? He's fairly well liked. I think it would be cool to see him lead a little more this season. There is going to be a need for people to take charge, and the opportunity may be there for him to do it."

Q: Your character came this close to hooking up with Cynthia Watros last season. Did you lose an on-set bet that she got killed off before the big romantic scene?

A: "That romance was fun. It meant a lot to me because a guy my size usually doesn't get a love interest in a prime time show. It was a special thing as far as breaking categories. I'm curious how this tragedy may effect him - and finding out that Michael was the cause. There may be some kind of change in him - perhaps more stoic. Or maybe vengeful."

Bryan Burk (producer)
Q: (Among) the background people that haven't been speaking, have any of them actually moved into speaking roles or do they just bring in new people and pretend that they were in the background all along?

A: "We use a lot of the same atmosphere people. There are people there who are still there from the pilot, wearing the same outfits from when the plane crashed. We keep referencing Scott and Steve - one of them has died, but I'm not sure if the writers even know which one anymore. There were two actors playing Scott and Steve, but we believe they switched names along the way … It's absolutely possible that these people could get lines. Who gets lines changes on a minute by minute basis. One of our editors ended up getting a role in the first episode."

The last time we saw our favorite, most confounding island survivors, they were trying to escape a hatch on fire, sitting on the beach or captured by those pesky Others.

Soon enough, Lost will return (October 4 to be exact, set your TiVos now) and more mysteries will be revealed. In the meantime, cast members got together in Hawaii to celebrate the release of Season Two on DVD.

Typicalyl, The Gossip would write off Comic-Con as a convention for comic books geeks, dorks and dweebs. And it mostly still is.

But once we found out some of the cast and crew from Lost would be there, we had to transcribe that panel for our loyal readers ...

  • Fox, Matthew

10:34 a.m.: There's footage from the Lost Diaries, which debut on Verizon cell phones in the fall. The concept follows Hurley, who finds a video camera on the island. Kate and Sawyer also appear in the clip.

10:38 a.m.: There are clips from the second season DVD set. Among them: backstage footage of the Hurley-Sawyer fight, a short clip of Alvar Hanso and interviews with writers about the Sun-Jin relationship.

10:43 a.m.: Executive producers Bryan Burk, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof take the stage. The crowd goes wild for Jorge Garcia and Daniel Dae Kim.

10:46 a.m.: The guys mention two strange theories fans have come up with: that the show takes place in Vincent's mind and that Hurley is Claire's baby grown up.

10:52 a.m.: Cuse says fan response has influenced the show in several ways. One of them is the way the show is structured next season, with "pods" of new episodes. The first six episodes, he says, will be "like a miniseries."

10:54 a.m.: The crowd boos when an audience member tells the panel she wasn't surprised Lost got no Emmy nods. "We were disappointed and a little bit shocked," Lindelof says of the snub. He adds that they don't write the series just to win awards, though.

Forget waiting around for the Emmy Awards. Television critics gathered over the weekend and dished out praise for a slew of shows and actors.

The most rewarded show at the 22nd annucal Television critics Association Awards was NBC's The Office. It earned a trophy for top comedy series, while Steve Carell was rightfully honoroed as leading comedic performer. He's quite funny.

The Gossip also approved of the program of the year winner, Grey's Anatomy. We'd like Meredith to whine less and Izzie to get naked more, but we're still glued to the screen every week.

Somehow, the Emmys snubbed Lost - but these critics found a way to award TV's most intriguing, well-written hour. It won its second consecutive award for best drama, while Hugh Laurie was the best dramatic actor for his role in House.

While not an official category this year, we'd imagine Oprah Winfrey would've won the award for least gay celebrity. Maybe next year!

It's already been confirmed that 24 will be made into a feature length film. Could another hit TV show be far behind?

Those behind Lost want to end the ABC juggernaut after a maximum of five years; they're planning a movie spin-off as they look ahead.

Co-creator Damon Lindelof is so worried producers and studio executives will drag the show out, he's making his opinion on the matter clear now.

"We'd love to end the show after four year, five years tops and do a movie," he said.

No Lost actors or actresses had a comment at the time of this tory.

No one tell Charlie. The news may drive him off the wagon.

Nevertheless, Lost actress Emilie de Ravin, who plays Claire Littleton, has married actor Josh Janowicz. The couple lives in Los Angeles and wed June 19.

Emilie de Ravin Bangs

Janowicz proposed on Jan. 1, 2005 while visiting de Ravin's family in Australia. Fortunately, the duo's flight actually made it back to the States.

Both are 24 years old and have recently starred in a pair of films; for De Ravin it was the thriller The Hills Have Eyes, while Janowicz will play a role in the yet-to-be-released On the Doll.

Jorge Garcia, along with producers and a few other stars from the TV show/life-altering experience, Lost, stopped by the annual Comic-Con convention in San Diego this year. Here's an interview with the actor that portrays Hurley:

Q: Do you think Hurley is the luckiest man in the world, or the unluckiest man in the world?

A: (Laughs) Well, yeah I guess now I've got to go with he's actually quite unlucky. I mean, he won the money but there's so much bad connected to that money that I don't know how you can consider that being lucky.

Q: There seems to be a real connection between you and the new cast member Libby played by Cynthia Watros. Is it cool for your character to have a bit of a love interest there.

A: It was. It was very cool, especially because how often does a guy like me get an onscreen kiss?

Q: And then again there was that scene this season with Hurley in the mental institution and Libby sitting across from you. Is all of Lost just a fantasy in Hurley's mind?

A: Well, you might think that if it was in Hurley's mind there would be a lot more going his way. Seriously, his girlfriend wouldn't have been shot.
