"I didn't come into Lost until the middle of the second season, so it may be that my arrival coincides with the beginning of the writers showing their larger agenda – that this was going to be more metaphysical, more mysterious, more of a puzzle than it seemed at first sight. The discussions I've had with season one regulars is that they didn't know where this was going – I don't think anyone did. Even when I came on, I never knew what the twists or turns would be or where the writers intended to lead us. That was always speculation for everyone on the cast. We used to sit around and try to figure it out, too, though not as successfully as the folks at home."
