A Lost teaser poster was one of the big talking points of the Lost 2009 Comic-Con panel. The Lost teaser poster was the first promotional material for the final season, and as such, the Lost teaser poster was heavily analyzed for clues. And the Lost teaser poster may have given out a couple, mostly because of how many old Lost characters were in it. But the Lost teaser poster hinted at even more than that.
At the Comic Con panel, a big Lost teaser poster was up on the walls, which consisted of one long group shot of every single Lost major character in the last five years – even the dead ones. Old favorites like Charlie, Juliet, Daniel, Eko, and many more departed Lost souls were in the teaser poster, alongside the still-living Lost castaways.
Mostly everyone took the Lost teaser poster as yet another hint that all the dead Lost regulars will be back in the final season – and that the future really was changed by the detonation of the “Jughead” bomb in 1977. The Lost Comic Con panel itself was filled with similar teases that there could be an alternate timeline next season, which would bring Charlie, Juliet, and the other former survivors back into play.
But the Lost teaser poster displayed a few more juicy details. Every character was standing together and facing the front- yet the character at the center of the poster had his back turned. Since that character is John Locke – who isn’t himself anymore since the real Locke is dead, and an unnamed adversary of island ruler Jacob is posing as Locke – it takes on extra significance.
What’s more, there are hieroglyphics on the words “The Final Season” at the bottom of the poster. Egyptian symbols and hieroglyphics have become a major part of the Lost mystery, as an Egyptian influence may be at the center of iconic symbols like the Temple, and the four toed statue.
The Lost teaser poster, complete with the Comic Con panel itself, has made nearly every Lost fan believe, or fear, that the series will conclude with alternate realities, nearly every dead character coming back, and proof that the future can change – despite 99% of Season Five proving that it couldn’t.
Still, the alternate reality commercials at Comic Con, and the teaser poster itself, are not part of the overall Lost continuity. Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse may just be toying with the audience, much like Lost villain/anti-hero Ben Linus toys with the survivors, in lieu of actually giving out real clues to Season Six.
Since Season Six doesn’t start filming for another month, and since actual teaser footage of Season Six probably won’t come until the fall, Lost audiences are very vulnerable to such games and manipulation at the moment.
