Name that Car: Lost Edition

Here's a fun game for you while we wait for 4x06 next week. I was editing our Wiki list article on cars, and thought that the image thumbnails could be a trivia test for Losties.

This is how it works. In the following images from Lost, name the main character driving or riding in the car. If you know that, you should know the episode.

The list will be a mix of difficulty: 4 each in categories or Easy, Medium and Hard.

To play, don't click on the images (the URL filenames sometimes give away the answer), and see if you can do it just from the 400 pixel thumbnails.

For every correct answer in Easy, score 1 point.
For every correct answer in Medium, score 2 points.
For every correct answer in Hard, score 3 points.

Post your score in comments and see how you do against other Lost fans.

For more than you want to know about cars in Lost, see our article: Automobiles

Adam Horowitz Cameo in The Constant?

One thing in 4x05 The Constant nagged at me for some reason when I saw it. When Desmond first runs into Faraday at Oxford, he finds him speaking with a student. This student pops out of the background, appearing to be unusually pale, and wearing distinctive glasses with smoked lenses and a conspicuous striped yellow sweater. He looked oddly familiar, but I couldn't place the feeling.

This afternoon my unconscious, which had been working on the problem all night and morning, finally came up with the answer.

He looks a lot like Lost writer and co-executive producer Adam Horowitz. I might be wrong, but the more I mulled it over, the more the two seemed to match. He really looks like his appearance in the "Lost in a Day" extra from the Season 3 DVD set, where he appears with his writing partner Edward Kitsis. Incidentally, if you've noticed Ethan Rom wearing University of Wisconsin sweatshirts, they are likely the reason why, because that is where they met and started writing together.

One detail that argues against this theory is that Horowitz is not credited as a writer for this episode. And like all the writing staff, Horowitz is based in LA, and not in Hawaii where the filming takes place, but as a co-executive producer wouldn't you pull strings to get yourself a work vacation to paradise? Now I'll be looking for Eddie Kitsis in episodes.

I suppose we should just post a query for Gregg Nations at The Fuselage to settle the answer once and for all, but for now I'm willing to go out on a limb and on the record to call this a possible cameo and Easter egg exclusive.

And while we're talking cameos, some users noted Lost executive producer Jack Bender's dog Lulu sitting leashed on a lawn in the scene in Oxford. Maybe the dog is Jacob. Just kidding.
