Show-Runners Answer Questions About What to Expect in the Near Future of "Alcatraz"
Will the reason why Tommy Madsen is so important come to light soon?

Dan Pyne: Yes. Everything's building towards that in midseason. That would be the question that's answered in the last episode.

Jennifer Johnson: A lot of things are going to come together having to do with the inmate's blood, Tommy Madsen and what's behind the Warden's door.

Is there a particular reason why Alcatraz prison became the focus point of the disappearance?

Johnson: Yeah. There are theories that our characters have. We'll talk about what those theories are by the end of the season, but they may not be the real ones. We'll understand what Hauser thinks about it and what his think-tank thinks about it, but that's really just the tip of the iceberg. We may meet a character by the end of the season who does know that specific answer, who probably has a lot more answers than any of the characters we've met so far.

Dissecting Alcatraz's Mysteries: How many '63s are working with Hauser?

Will we learn who the powers that be are and what their motives are this season? Or is that a series arc?
Pyne: Well, it's a little of both. I think by the end of [Episode] 13 we'll have an understanding of who that might be.

Johnson: That's the character that we were referring to. He might be part of the powers that be.

Pyne: But definitely by the end of the season there will be more of a sense of the game that's afoot. We won't be coy about it and keep holding back. There will be a better sense of what's going on. We may not understand what the endgame is, but at least the players will become a little bit clearer.

Johnson: It's complicated because they don't all have the same goals, which we're going to hit upon before the end of the season. There's almost a secret war happening between the '63s, too. That all interplays with what their relationships were in the past when they were imprisoned or working on Alcatraz.

Is there a reason why some of the '63s have gone against mission?

Pyne: Yes.

Johnson: We won't say definitively, but we'll give people the tools to have pretty informed theories about it.

What's with the fascination with the number three - three keys, three bank robberies and three days of sniper shootings are just some of the few?

Pyne: There may be more than one number clue.

Johnson: Forty-seven is an important number, too. But we like three for its stability and the idea that it's a triangle. We talk about triangles a lot and relationships that have three angles in them.

Dissecting Alcatraz's Mysteries: Who is Lucy, really?

Lucy had mentioned in the past that she was going to fix the prisoners with memory-altering experiments. Did she end up being a puzzle piece in the overall mystery of how the '63s disappeared?

Pyne: She definitely is a puzzle piece, yes. We may not stick with this forever, but right now, everything that's happened in the past has happened chronologically in 1960. So, there's still three years left before the jump. Clearly, allegiances change. Stuff happens in those three years between the time when Lucy comes to prison to start her experiments and 1963 when she obviously disappeared along with everybody else. Certainly, she has some answers to what might have gone on, but she also may not even understand. She didn't understand at the time what was going on. It may be just now looking back at it that she can start to unravel what she saw.

Johnson: Yeah, helping the team unravel by knowing the psychology of the inmates. But the Warden (Jonny Coyne) is very Machiavellian. He does not want the left hand to know what the right hand is doing. So, he may utilize different players for their different challenges. But part of his M.O. is not to let any one person know too much of what is going on.

Diego mentioned in the pilot that the Warden had died many years ago. Did he really or is he part of the missing '63s?

Pyne: It's possible.
Will we discover how Lucy came to work with Hauser in the future and see more of their relationship in the past?

Johnson: Yes. Definitely, 100 percent.
Pyne: Their love story is one of the great triangles of Alcatraz.

Johnson: It's kind of the love triangle between Hauser, Lucy, and the jump itself.

Dissecting Alcatraz's Mysteries: Why is Tommy Madsen so important?

Will we find out what Dr. Beauregard (Leon Rippy) was doing behind closed doors at Alcatraz?

Pyne: You may find out soon, in the next couple episodes. Then once you find out, you may be totally wrong, but you will see some of what he's up to. He's a little bit jealous of Lucy's elevation to the prize poodle on Alcatraz, so he gets up to some hijinks that he maybe shouldn't.

What can you tell us about the downstairs door that needs to be opened with three keys?

Johnson: That we're going to open it before the end of the season. We'll understand by the end of the season what's behind that door, at least one layer of it. It was very important to the Warden. There may only be one person that he shares that secret with.


We learned Diego was kidnapped at age 11. Will that come back into play?

Johnson: That's his deep, deep back story and a lot of what motivated his fascination with Alcatraz and with comic books. We won't necessarily go there before the end of the season, but that is part of who he is as a character and why he became part of this team.

Dissecting Alcatraz's Mysteries: Hauser and Lucy's past revealed
Once Rebecca does finally come face-to-face with Tommy, will she be able to let bygones be bygones and realize that he is still her family?
Pyne: Gosh.

Johnson: We know the answer to that, but I don't think we can tell you.
What can you tell us about what is in store for her?

Pyne: She begins to get a little bit more focused on solving the mystery of what happened to her partner and delving into that day and why he was there. It slowly leads her to some revelations about her partner about the larger mystery of Alcatraz and also about Tommy Madsen.

Johnson: And what everybody is doing here present day. They discover that there are different factions of '63s here in present day San Francisco and beyond.

Alcatraz airs Mondays at 9/8c on Fox.

Latest From EW:
You haven’t had anything on Alcatraz in a bit and I was hoping for a little scoop on the two-hour episode. Anything good? — Caitlin
I would say the episodes are only loosely connected, so I wouldn’t necessarily call it a two-hour installment. But they are definitely two strong episodes — each with its own strength. The first episode finds the gang trapped inside Alcatraz during a wicked storm and features a pretty cool discovery at the end of the episode. And the second hour, titled “Sonny Burnett,” is the episode in which Sons of Anarchy alum Theo Rossi guests as probably one of my favorite cons so far. You know how our hearts were aching for poor Juice toward the end of the last Sons season? Well, you won’t feel bad for him here; he’s downright creepy — and after you see it, you’ll never want to see him another way!

1x11 "Webb Porter" Press Release:
MUSIC CANNOT SOOTHE THE SAVAGE BEAST ON AN ALL-NEW “ALCATRAZ” MONDAY, MARCH 19, ON FOX

Rami Malek (“Night at the Museum”) Guest-Stars

Rebecca, Doc, and Hauser set out to capture musically-inclined serial killer Webb Porter (guest star Malek), an unknown ’63 that returns more violent than ever in the all-new “Webb Porter” episode of ALCATRAZ airing Monday, March 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (ALC-111) (TV-14 L, V)

Cast: Sarah Jones as Detective Rebecca Madsen; Jorge Garcia as Dr. Diego Soto; Sam Neill as Emerson Hauser; Parminder Nagra as Lucy Banerjee; Robert Forster as Ray Archer; Jonny Coyne as Warden Edwin James; Jason Butler Harner as Associate Warden ED Tiller.

Guest Cast: Rami Malek as Webb Porter
http://www.spoilertv.com/2012/03/alcatr ... press.html


I don't know exactly how this is going to relate to "Felicity", but since the title-name references the last name of two characters (Felicity Porter and Zoe Webb), I can't imagine it won't relate to them at all....especially since when Felicity time travels back in "Felicity Interrupted", she ends up meeting another version of Zoe in a psyche-ward.

But both Zoe and Felicity's fathers share a role in which they don't approve of their daughter's initial love interest, Mr. Porter disproves of Ben and Mr. Webb disproves of Noel. Noel and Webb (of Webb Graphics) thematically add onto Felicity's dilemma of being an artist or doctor (being with Noel or Ben).

Bad Robot has this thing about people who become scientist or doctors who wish they were artists/musicians...Part of Felicity's story was about exploring her artistic interests, as opposed to doing what her dad wanted her to do, follow in his foot steps and become a doctor. We see something similar with Daniel Faraday in LOST too, although his future is more forced upon him by his mother than Felicity's father. Even in Fringe we get wind from a few of the comics that Olivia would/could have been a great artist as opposed to a science investigating Fringe agent...

"You Won't Believe What Happens Next" (Season 1 Montage) Promo! (Includes Finale Footage!)
http://www.spoilertv.com/2012/03/alcatraz-you-wont-believe-what-happens.html

Be Back Later Tonight For Panel Coverage! Stay Tuned...

7 Teases From Alcatraz Cast and Crew!
In speaking to how the premise came about, executive producer Steve Lilien recalled having a dream that he was the only one walking around Alcatraz island and had the idea that when the island closed, it was part of a conspiracy.
But why was Alcatraz a prime location for the mythology-driven series?

“You say the word and it’s gothic and mysterious. When you go there, it’s a great prison. It makes sense that you would house the [world’s biggest prisoners],” said executive producer Bryan Wynbrandt.

“Then when Robert Kennedy signed [the papers] to close Alcatraz, it had to be part of a conspiracy,” which was met with some laughter.

If viewers are skeptical about whether answers will be given as the first season closes out in a few weeks, producers kyboshed their worry – for the time being.

“We have a master plan. We do know where we’re going,” said executive producer Jennifer Johnson, teasing that parts of that story will be revealed during the 13th episode. (Monday's episode will also be inspired by the true story of the Birdman.)

Though the future of Alcatraz is unclear, producers are moving ahead with their plan. When asked whether the season finale is a closing of a chapter, Johnson offered this tease.

“It’s one hell of a cliffhanger,” she said, with Lilien teasing that they “have great ideas for season 2 and beyond.”
Here are some teases from the Alcatraz panel:

1. Will Lucy be integrated back into present day?: “Because my character got put into the ‘60s, it totally blew open the door for what was going to come to come to be and what was going to come in the last three episodes. I really think you’ll see the combination of flashbacks that I’ve been in and I’m not sure what I can say,” Parminder Nagra said, before looking to the producers.

“Why would we waste her just in the past?” Johnson asked, before teasing that that will be answered.

2. A new (and pivotal) character will be introduced: “It’s a character we haven’t met so far and he is working with Warden James. We’ll meet him in two weeks in the finale. We will meet the character behind the warden story,” Johnson teased.

“I figured there was something dark going on there,” Johnny Coyne, who plays the warden, said. “There were a few winks going on in my direction so I kind of knew [where the character was going].”

“Look for a wink in episode 12 from the warden. Look for it on the docks,” Johnson teased.

3. Rebecca vs. Tommy revisited: When asked whether more light could be shed between the encounter showed in the promo clip prior to the panel, star Sarah Jones remained coy. “The video is pretty thorough in teasing the possibilities of what can happen in the next few episodes,” Jones said.

4. “Some of the questions about the silver will be answered in episode 13,” Johnson said. “We’ll learn a lot about the blood and what it all means to the larger picture.” Wynbrandt also teased that you’ll find out “the source of the blood,” whether it is Tommy.

5. Big car chase in the finale: The panelists teased Rebecca catches her grandfather by recreating the Bullet scene on location in San Francisco, which took three days.

6. More prisoners will return: In the last three episodes of the season, some Alcatraz prisoners will be popping back up. Should a return of Jack Sylvane be expected?

7. Rebecca's parents unveiled?: Producers teased that in the finale, the question of Rebecca's parents will be addressed.

Latest From Mega Buzz:
The car chase scene in the Alcatraz finale looks awesome. What can you tell us about the Tommy-Rebecca showdown? — Samuel
NATALIE: Prior to the big car chase -- which has been likened to Steve McQueen's Bullitt (see awesome clip here) -- Rebecca and Diego will discover more about Tommy's involvement in the bigger mystery, which will be the catalyst for the desperate hunt to track him down. More importantly, Ray's change of heart about Tommy will be explained. http://www.tvguide.com/News/Mega-Buzz-S ... 45095.aspx

Season Finale Episodes - TV Guide Scoop!
Spoiler (Click to reveal/hide)
1. Tommy vs. Rebecca: Rebecca and her ageless grandfather will finally come face-to-face after a spectacular car chase — said to pay homage to Steve McQueen's Bullitt. Before that though, "We find out a little more about Tommy's involvement in the big picture that makes us go, 'Wait a minute,' and that leads to the hunt down," Jorge Garcia says. (Though Tommy seems to be on the losing end in this promo, Rebecca looks way worse for wear here.)

2. The mystery door: As TVGuide.com first reported, Crimson Tide's Matt Craven will play a new character who happens to be behind the mysterious door downstairs. Whether he's actually the Warden's boss remains to be seen. "The interesting part between the warden and that person is who truly has the power," co-creator Steven Lilien says. "It's their own power struggle for what may be happening. He actually will provide us with some really big answers, which will launch us into Season 2." The good news: The door will be opened in the season finale. The bad news: There's also a third power player in the game.

Producers Talk A Potential Season 2
How are you guys feeling about the chances of a second season?
Daniel Pyne: I don't know. I wish the numbers had been better last night. I mean they weren't terrible. But we keep just slipping a little bit, which I'm not wild about. Is it the night we're on? is it the competition we're up against? Are people DVR'ing it because they know that we're up against two live shows that it doesn't do any good to DVR because you'll know the results the next day? Is it they're losing interest? I don't know. I felt like we gave it our best shot though last night. I thought both episodes showed the breadth of the show and the potential for where it can go. It's kind of exploded now. It can go so many different directions and so many things can happen. It's very exciting.

Should the series get renewed, is there anything you guys are already planning to keep audiences tuned in every week?
Pyne: More of what we've been doing toward the end. We're finding a way to marry the mythology and the A story by creating conspiracies, criminal conspiracies and multiple agendas for the '63s that we didn't have the opportunity to do before. It allows the audience to invest in a greater way in the A story. Occasionally, we can still do the guy who comes back who's just crazy and you've got to catch him before he wreaks havoc. But I feel like it's much more satisfying when you see characters who you have heard about or you know before; to figure out where Harlan (Steven Grayhm) is, who's with him, who's against him and what happened between Harlan and the Warden. You have all these questions that are present-day questions that merge with the past. I think that will engage not just our core audience, but will also make for more emotionally resonant shows going forward.

It's tough when you have to protect the city from the bad guy, but you want to have stories that are about characters interacting with each other. That was the rich thing about having Tommy Madsen come back. You wonder what he's doing, and everyone's invested in him. Lucy (Parminder Nagra) has a relationship with him, Hauser (Sam Neill) and Doc (Jorge Garcia) know who he is. All of that stuff leading to this moment that we have set up, which is this fateful moment of he's not a good guy, apparently. What Ray (Robert Forster) predicted might happen, happens. So, that was all fun.

Alcatraz Scoop: Tommy vs. Rebecca and 6 more spoilers from the season finale

Not for those who fear Rebecca is actually dead!
Pyne: But now you have the question of what really did happen to her parents. What does Ray know? Or was it a lie? Did he do it to distract her and stab her? Is it true or not? It might be true and he did it to stab her. But it's similar to what he was doing in the past. Was he really telling young Ray the truth or was he lying about killing his wife just to get him off the island so he could do what he wanted to do? Clearly, Tommy is not a good guy, but he may not be as bad as we think either. He might have a different agenda.

A lot of theories are suggesting that the magical blood could be the key to bringing Rebecca back to life should the show be renewed. Is that something we can be hopeful for?
Pyne: I'm not saying... Yeah, I guess. [Laughs] I don't know... Nothing good came out of Alcatraz, out of that prison. Ray was right. Nothing good was ever going to come out of the meeting of Tommy and Rebecca. He knew better. I mean, it was inevitable that it was going to happen. They were headed on a collision course, but it couldn't go any other way. She was never going to be able to catch him. Now she's dealing with this. Maybe she'll be on the island in Lost for a while. [Laughs]

Is there a reason the camera lingered on the silver knife Tommy stabbed her with? Some theories suggest she has the magical blood in her and the knife may have activated it.
Pyne: Yeah. It's possible. I can't say one way or another.

Are we to assume that there are other people besides the Warden and Mr. K who are behind the mass disappearance?
Pyne: Maybe, but one can speculate that between what we saw, which was the Warden and Mr. K with Tommy in 1960, and when the jump occurred in 1963, a lot of stuff happened and a lot of allegiances may have changed. Clearly, Lucy and Beauregard (Leon Rippy) were not friends then and are now. Harlan was the Warden's guy on the outside then and isn't now. So, you could logically assume that that's true of other people too. It may be that people have hijacked the jump for their own purposes, but I think it's safe to say that the Warden and Mr. K are prominent, significant players.

Alcatraz Exclusive: Crimson Tide's Matt Craven to play one of the powers that be

Harlan became such a major player in the finale. Should the show return, will he be a major character?
Pyne: His presence, yes. I mean the answer is yes. He's an old guy, though, wherever he is. He didn't make the jump, as far as we know. He is a man who left the prison and made his fortune. He's a financial genius and he made his fortune on the markets over the years. Presumably, the Warden was expecting help when the jump happened, but Harlan betrayed him.

One theory is that the Warden had Harlan invest the Civil War gold so by the time the Warden came to the future, he would be rich.
Pyne: That's very smart. That's very possible. That's not necessarily true, but it's very possible. That gold isn't there anymore.

Are Mr. K and Harlan working together?
Pyne: You shouldn't assume they're working together. No. No. It's more likely that Mr. K and the Warden are together. Although we don't know. It could change. Harlan definitely split off. As far as they know at the end of [Episode] 13, there are these two factions. They're not in agreement. Harlan has done something. He's double-crossed the Warden and possibly was trying to get a hold of the keys so that no one could get in there and find the tracking and use it — or whatever else is in there too. There's computers in there, there's stuff that can be mined.

With the mention of the President of the United States in the finale, does the cover-up go that high?
Pyne: We know that the government knew about this because they covered it up. Robert Kennedy signed the papers and covered it up back in '63. Either he knew about it or someone around him knew about it and fooled him. Harlan is an important enough financial player that he only deals with presidents and potentates. Yeah, it could easily go that high.

Ratings: Alcatraz finale hits series low; Dancing and The Voice fall

With the clue that the '63s are returning all over the country, might that open up Alcatraz to more than just San Francisco in the potential second season?
Pyne: That's our hope, yeah. We want to be able to travel; to find out that the '63s have become more embedded. They've been here, they have girlfriends, they have lives, they have covers, they are more difficult to catch, but also it makes them a much richer story opportunity. If they can figure out how this tracking works, for example, they might know that someone's in Kansas City but they won't know where.

Is it important to remember Mr. K's mention of Tommy in Korea?
Pyne: Yes. Something went on with Tommy in Korea and Mr. K was there. He knew about it. So, Tommy's story goes all the way back to Korea. Something may have happened in Korea or right after Korea.

Are Lucy and Hauser just a couple that can never be because of this 50-year difference?
Pyne: Well, it's interesting, because if you track what happens in the final story she kind of makes up her mind to be with him. That last statement that she makes, "No, we do this together," comes directly off of her telling Beauregard, "He's not the man I thought he was. Part of him is missing." In the middle of the episode she's searching, "Are you going to go with him? Are you going to leave?" She makes a decision to be with him. Clearly, it's complicated for her because he's not the man that she loved eight months ago or whenever she came back. Whenever she jumped, that was when she last saw him. So, for her, it hasn't been 50 years. But he's changed by 50 years.

Our feeling was she makes the decision, "He waited for me for 50 years. I'm going to hang in there and see what comes out of this." But it is very star-crossed. It is sad because they loved each other and this thing happened. They can never be together the way they were, which is always a great love story and a sad thing.

Should the series not get renewed, have you guys discussed ways of answering the mysteries for the audience? For example, the Fringe producers plan to continue the story in comics.
Pyne: We haven't planned on anything yet, but we'll deal with that when the time comes. In one way, we feel like the first 13 [episodes] were a marvelous short story and ended where we wanted it to end with tons of questions, but [also] a lot of answers to things that had been bugging people. So, we wrapped some things up, but we deal with others. We play out the Tommy/Rebecca to its natural and tragic conclusion. But if we don't get picked up, yeah, we'll have to figure out some other way. Online short stories maybe.

Sure. We probably won't know till the end of the month, but with any luck seeing how Fringe made it for 13 more, I don't see what the harm is in putting Alcatraz in it's place on Fridays. I totally agree with the showrunners that part of the problem was being up against "the voice"...so I am hoping for more good things, because I think Alcatraz has what it takes to be a great show. -Sort of interesting how "nanites" in the blood turn up for Fringe's finale episodes, considering this plot with the colloidal silver in the blood ;)
