SPOILER ALERT: This morning, local blogger Vernon Brown was attending a shipmate's re-enlistment ceremony at Pearl Harbor when he spotted the "LOST" crew setting up for a shoot. He posted the news to Twitter, along with a few pictures. Meanwhile, long-time lostspotter Eric, who works at Pearl Harbor, sent in word of the shoot a few minutes later. Suffice it to say, more than a few fans were able to stop by today.
The shoot was at the U.S.S. Bowfin Submarine Museum, next door to the U.S.S. Arizona visitors center. Filming took place on and inside the submarine, as well as inside a small exhibit space in the Bowfin complex. The exhibit displayed a cross section of a typical submarine interior, and since it was blacked out on all sides, most likely the crew was using it to film submarine scenes in slightly less cramped quarters.
Spotted on the set were Josh Holloway (Sawyer) and Alan Dale (Charles Widmore), under the direction of Jack Bender. I stopped by on the way home from work today, they were filming one last shot down the submarine hatch with Holloway. Then, Holloway and Dale followed the crew as they disembarked the submarine as the sun began to set, moving over to the enclosed exhibit.
It seems safe to assume that Episode 6x08 is Sawyer centric, as he's been busy this week. And it's great to see Dale back at work. The mind boggles at the implications of having Charles Widmore interacting with Sawyer aboard the Galaga. In a world where Oceanic Flight 815 doesn't crash, how much success has Widmore had in his hunt for the island? Or, could it be possible that Widmore has never lost his control over the island in the first place?
