Lost show runners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are here to take your fan questions and, apparently, give out relevant prizes, and it'll all be live-blogged here. Click in...

Q's and A's are paraphrased. This will be updated frequently, so check back often. Vids of key moments coming soon.

Q: When the hatch imploded and the sky turned purple—did the Island move then?
A: No. But something happened. Prize: Oceanic water bottle.

Q: What is the fate of Jin and Locke?
A: Jin will still be on the show in some form. You've not seen the last of either of those characters. Prize: Jin panda bear.

Q: Best episode and best season, in your opinion?
Cuse: "The Constant" is my favorite episode, and season one.
Lindelof: "Exodus" and the raft launch before the show disintegrated into utter despair. I also like season four. Prize: Apollo bar and Apollo bar T-shirt.

Q: What's up with the reflection in the season four promos where the city was in the reflection in the water?
A: That was all about the Oceanic Six getting off the Island. Prize: Heroes DVD.

Q: Will there be a Rousseau flashback?
Cuse: We will see Rousseau's story, to use the word "flashback" might be disingenious.
Lindelof: We're steering away from the flashes. Prize: I Am Lost luggage tags.

Q: What's up with the actors' strike?
A: We're supposed to start in three weeks, at least until further notice changes that plan. Prize: Photo of Nikki & Paolo.

Q: Any special guests this year?
A: No actors. Sorry. Prize: Actor-signed DVD box set.

Q: What happened to Vincent?
A: What about what happened the Island and Sawyer and Juliet? Vincent's okay and will appear in season five. Safe to say: Vincent's gonna make it to the end. Prize: Little polar bear.

Q: Are Jack and Kate your show's one true pariring?
Cuse: Personally I like those two, professionally I'm going to take the Fifth. Prize: Jack action figure.

Ah, we've been had again. MATTHEW FOX is so totally here. Photos coming soon!

Q: Will Kate ever see Sawyer again?
Lindelof: Not if Jack has anything to say about it.
Cuse: Yes. Kate will see Sawyer again. Prize: Signed poster.

Q: What happened to nonspeaking "beachies" who were ferried over to the blowed-up boat from the season four finale?
A: They dead. Faraday is probably gonna be okay. Prize: Authentic Faraday tie.

Lindelof Q to Matthew Fox: Do you know the meat-socks/redshirts, i.e. those who died on the boat?
A: Yep. They're always there and very professional.

Q: Is there a limit to how far the flashes can go back and forth in time?

Lindelof: We're going to tell stories in a new and exciting way. This year, when season five starts, you're not going to know when and where you are.
Cuse: There will be storytelling both on and off the Island and in different periods of time.
Lindelof: Guy who makes wooshing sound will remain employed. Prize: Hanso Foundation hat.

Q: Just between me and you, how does this show end?
A: It ends well, we hope.
Q: Can I have some Jin?

Lindelof: The alcohol or the character?
Prize: Dharma beer.

Q: How old is Richard Alpert and does he have six toes?
A: Not tellin'. We will see Richard Alpert barefoot in the very near future and that's pun-intended: the very near future. Prize: "I asked a Richard Alpert question and all I got was this lousy T-shirt" T-shirt.

Lindelof Q to Matthew Fox: How old do you think Richard Alpert is?
A: 125 years old.
Lindelof: Wrong.

Q: Regarding Locke's pseudonym of Jeremy Bentham, and one of his big things was the panopticon, are the people on the Island people being watched and by who?
A: Good question. [Interrupted by new Martin Candle video drama. That video? Coming soon, right here!]

That's all for now, kiddos. Check back soon for photos and video from the panel and in the not-too-distant future, my backstage interview with Mr. Matthew Fox himself! In the meantime, post your comments and Q's on the panel below, and we'll work on dragging more answers out of the powers that be in the very near future.
