Why did you finally deleted an episode, even though it is already open to the continuation of his story in a season 2 ? Simply to questions of pace and consistency. “I believe that at the time of the writing of the episode 4 or 5 that we realized what was going to be episode 6 – and that it needed to take place exactly where it took place” there and confessed.
According to Damon Lindelof, if the schema of a narrative of season 1 has also worked well on the screen, it is precisely thanks to this episode in the least : “We felt that, once that episode 6 would end, we would be closer to the end than the beginning. For us, the episode 6 we do not seem to be a simple point of passage. With him, we felt that we knew exactly what there was to know in order to move towards the conclusion“.
An episode useless
In other words, this is not to have had an episode the less frustrating it is to have an episode that would have been : “I said, ‘We’re not going to do an episode of filling. We know exactly what we must do to arrive at the conclusion, it is time to start it. I don’t want to get caught‘”. Yes, the perfection of a series lies in its details.
