SPOILER ALERT: In years past, the “LOST” filming schedule would stretch to six days a week only occasionally, and usually as days run out toward the winter break or the season finale. But things for this final season seems to be especially intense, as we’ve already seen a few Saturday shoots even though we’re only a few weeks into production. And yesterday, two separate units were working on opposite sides of town.
The first shoot was in downtown Honolulu. “LOST” fan and HPU student “Alevermor” caught the set dressing crew at work off Alakea St., in the largely vacated back offices of Hawaiian Telcom, on Friday. A friendly crewmember told her that the Saturday morning shoot would be behind closed doors, but that Terry O’Quinn (Locke) was the scene’s central star. A report from TVOvermind today suggests that Billy Ray Gannon was also there, reprising his role as Locke’s box company nemesis, Randy Nations.
So, the good news for Locke fans is that, in a sense, “old Locke” will return for Season 6. The bad news is that his life, once again, is not a particularly joyous one.
The second shoot was larger and more tantalizing, staged miles away at Waipahu High School. A large group of young extras were assembled (many accompanied by their fortunately talkative parents) to play high school students and a girls basketball team. There was much glee (including one fan who was giving a play-by-play over a cell phone to relatives in Pennsylvania) when the day’s key actors emerged from their respective trailers: Terry O’Quinn and Michael Emerson (Ben).
Terry O’Quinn was dressed smartly, in slacks and a dark purple plaid collared shirt. And Emerson was looking similarly snappy, wearing khaki pants and a dark sweater vest over a long-sleeved light blue dress shirt. He was also sporting fairly bookish glasses and a modest head of hair.
Locke and Ben, off island, in what appears to be a post no-crash scene? And with Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello revealing the title of Episode 6×04 as “The Substitute,” I think one or both of these gentlemen may be working in education — wherever or whenever they are.
Of course, “substitute” could apply to many other things fans have been pondering since the end of Season 5. Only sixteen weeks to go…
Updated 5:05 p.m. HST: According to a Twitter post from Kurt Sutter, husband of the actress who “LOST” fans know as Locke’s lost love, Helen Norwood, Katey Sagal in Hawaii right now. A separate account, @kateysagal, also mentions being in Hawaii. Might the Locke and Helen story get a different ending?

Another of LOST's iconic tertiary characters will be showing up in the sixth and final season. If his appearance doesn't necessarily excite you on its own, what it has to say about an old favorite character just may. Click on for all of the spoilery details.
I have it on good authority that Billy Ray Gallion A.K.A Randy (Locke's boss, Hurley's Boss and Future employee) filmed a scene with our beloved John Locke (Terry O'Quinn) yesterday. Yes, it was our Locke -wheelchair and all – not that poseur dude in black that was driving around an imitation model last season.
The scene takes place after Oceanic 815 lands safely in Los Angeles and details the taunting that ensues when Locke returns to his box company collections supervisor job to face off with his sneering boss, Randy. Needless to say, things don't go very well… you can take that however you like.
For those that are wondering, the various 'insider' reports so far seem to indicate that the 815′rs are dealing with non-supernatural dramas in the Oceanic 815 landed time-line. Some filming on the island seems to indicate that the other possible outcome - what if the Jughead plan failed – is also being explored. So are we watching two versions of our beloved losties, or does this indicate… gulp… flash-betweens? Only a little better than three months to go people.
