You talked about Josh Holloway and “the long con” in the same sentence a few minutes ago, you mentioned Will’s son’s name is Charlie just now, and in the premiere, Patsy Cline’s “Walkin’ After Midnight” plays during a Katie scene — music specifically used on Lost in many Kate Austen scenes. Are these intentional Lost Easter eggs, or are fans of the show looking too hard?
Well, it’s two things. For one, there are certain influences that writers bring to the table, no matter what they do. You can watch an Aaron Sorkin movie, and there are certain elements of every Aaron Sorkin script that are the same. There are some inherent qualities you can identify in his scripts that are based on his influences. For me, the very first project I ever worked on in depth in Hollywood was Sweet Dreams, the Patsy Cline story. I worked for the producer of that movie, and I spent five months in West Virginia and Nashville with director Karel Reisz on that movie. So Patsy Cline is very infused in my brain. So I’m sure there is Lost crossover here in Colony, and some of it’s just unintentional — but then there are intentional crossovers. There is a very intentional Lost Easter egg in the final episode of the season, which I am sure you will appreciate.
