Alan of HItFix writes, "Last night's "Lost" review appeared to put me in the minority in enjoying the episode. And "Lost" show runners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are certainly aware of the polarizing reaction to "Across the Sea," and we talked about that - and about certain details of the episode, and complaints fans have had about the season, and even about my own personal obscure "Lost" obsession - in a wide-ranging phone interview this afternoon."
"It's ironic that the episode that's generating so much controversy is one in which we answered questions"
That is kind of funny. I have to say the majority of that interview was them tippy toeing around the fact that while people might not like how it's going to end to bad and deal with it. Good for them as I agree it's their show so they can do what they want with it.
However, the line "When we wrote that scene and somebody started shooting at them, we knew exactly who was shooting at them." rrrrriiiight so tell us unless you don't know which I would have to agree with ;)
