Lost Producers: What It Means to Be a Candidate, What's the "Sideways" World

On the Feb. 16 episode of Lost, we learned that the numbers (4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42) correspond with a group of people known as "the candidates": Locke, Hurley, Sawyer, Sayid, Jack and Jin or Sun, respectively. The Man in Black says they're candidates to take over for Jacob as the protector of the island. But should we trust the Man in Black? And what does it really mean to be a candidate? Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof weigh in.

Thirteen clues about the end of Lost: Does Ilana age? Who's coming back? Who isn't?

"The concept of the candidates is really central to the final season of the show," Cuse tells us. "Jacob is dead so that leaves a significant problem for the people on the island. Who is destined to be the person who is protecting this place?"

"One of the big questions of this show is: Why were these people brought to this island?" Lindelof adds. "At least now we have some sense - if Jacob is responsible for bringing them there - that it has something to do with the fact that he's been observing them for quite some time. We now have information that he had this lighthouse, that he was able to see these people, look into their lives. For some reason, he chose them. We'll find out what that reason is in the coming weeks."
