Evangeline Lilly talks about Claire and Kate reunion and what Kate feels about it
So Claire is crazy, huh?
[Laughs] In a nutshell, yes!
Funny you say the word “nutshell” because I’ve heard something about a squirrel baby …
Mmmhmmm … I’ve made myself a squirrel child out of squirrel bones and some kind of fur and little button eyes. He’s real cute.
Obviously you can’t just disappear with your father in that cabin for a full season and not have repercussions, so is this what’s happened?
Yeah, she’s been three years, living on her own, making her own housing and food and protecting herself. The only person she’s had contact with as a friend is Locke — who’s not really Locke anymore. So any information that she’s been given about what’s going on with other people or the Island is from him. And there are maybe some things that are not the whole truth. He’s led her to believe that the Others have her baby at the Temple, so that’s been her whole plan this last three years, to get him back. Finding out that he’s off the Island and Kate is bringing him up is just like a complete, complete shock to her. So there’s an interesting relationship with Claire and Kate now — a combination of animosity, to say the least, and also respect and thanks. So that’s been fun playing with.
Kind of crazy to think that while Kate was raising Aaron, she was doing so with Jack, Claire’s brother.
[Laughs] Yes — we’re getting very incestuous on this show!
Well as long as Claire and Jack aren’t the ones sleeping together and having the baby, I guess I’m OK with it …
Oh, you didn’t read the next episode? [Laughs] I wouldn’t be surprised! That’s the season finale.

new interview of Josh by People magazine who went on the set and spoke to Josh about Sawyer and what we can expect now for him and if Sawyer and Kate are really over and the second part is about Josh’s life.
How’s poor Sawyer holding up when we see him again in Tuesday’s episode?
He’s still racked with grief and full of guilt for allowing [Juliet’s death] to happen.
But Juliet’s the one who let go of Sawyer’s grip and detonated the bomb!
That doesn’t erase the shame and guilt of not being able to hold on. At the core, it’s a man’s responsibility to protect, no matter what. Going forward, Sawyer’s all anger. He hooks up with Locke because he just doesn’t care to live anymore. He’s already dead inside.
Are things officially over then between Sawyer and Kate?
Any feelings he allows for Kate are a betrayal to Juliet and their love. As the character, I don’t want anything to do with it. It’s shameful to him. Yet there’s an inevitable attraction. I want the writers to honor what Sawyer and Kate have built together, but I don’t know what that looks like.
Is it fun to get to play two versions of Sawyer this season — one on the island and one in the flash-sideways?
With all the things I’ve been through with this character already, it’s interesting. I thought I’d just figured out Sawyer and now it’s like, “Not so fast!” But life is that way — we think we learn lessons but then they come back for another round.
