LA Times article on Lost

From today's LA Times. Some mild spoilers, including new guest star casting (news to me, anyway.) I would link but the Calender section is only available to subscribers.

And oh no, the OTP! *clings to fanon*

FALL TV PREVIEW
Hang on, help is almost here
At least some relief is in sight for viewers left in a state of suspense by last season's finales.

Maria Elena Fernandez

Lost

Season premiere: Wednesday, Sept. 21

(ABC, 9 p.m.)

Where we left it: Jack, Locke, Kate and Hurley were staring down the much-talked-about hatch that appeared in the 10th episode. Walt was kidnapped by a group of vicious pirates, possibly the Others. The raft, set afire by the pirates, was sinking. Michael and Jin were floating in the water, trying to survive. Sawyer, who may have been shot by the Others, fell into the water. And the rest of the castaways remained on the island, awaiting the return of the foursome exploring the hatch.

Tantalizing hints: The season's first episode resolves the mysteries of the hatch, and the lives of the castaways change forever. The second episode reveals the fate of those who left the island on the raft. And Episode Three introduces several new characters.

New faces: Michelle Rodriguez is Ana Lucia, a flight passenger who showed up in a flashback in the season finale and survived elsewhere on the island; Cynthia Watros is Libby (is she a castaway, a pirate or something else?); and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is a mysterious island man. Jolene Blalock appears in Episode Two as a figure in Sawyer's past. Julie Bowen returns as Jack's wife; we learn how they met.

Things to count on: The revelation of what is in the hatch will raise more questions. The mysterious recurring numbers (on the flight, the hatch and Hurley's lottery ticket) will resurface in the second episode and remain a driving plot point. The entire cast returns but for Boone (Ian Somerhalder), resting in eternity. For the first seven or eight episodes, it will not be clear if the survivors of the raft incident will be reunited with the castaways on the island. And by season's end, the cause of the plane crash will no longer be a mystery.

--

OK, the OTP won't be together for 1/3 of the season. *breathe!* I'd heard a rumor along those lines, but OUCH! From what I've gleaned, Ana-Lucia will meet up with Jack, where he'll be juggling her and Kate? So Sawyer is romance-free? And is the Jolene Blalock casting news? I hadn't heard it before but I don't go looking for spoilers, usually.

All I can do is laugh and think of what Javi had to say on that subject: HERE and HERE.

Yeah, do a bit of homework, folks! ;-D He's only been saying all summer, "Yes, it was the OTHERS."

So the second episode is Sawyer's? Hurrah! *throws a party*

Does "the entire cast" include Ethan?

I've said it before, I'll say it again: that fucker was BREATHING before Charlie and Hurley put him in the ground.

And since when is Sawyer getting shot a maybe? People don't fly backwards off of boats because they *almost* got shot. WTF, people?

And hey, nice manip! ;-D Did you do that?

You know, I seem to remember reading somewhere that there would be a Skate hookup this year. Huh. I can't remember where that was now.

jack juggling Ana Lucia, Kate AND HIS WIFE?!?!

give some love to the other guys...

Well, the wife is long gone, either through death or divorce, I'm pretty damn sure. Jack hasn't been wearing a wedding ring on the island. And that's more baggage for our hero, right? Dead wife or failed marriage?

OK, the OTP won't be together for 1/3 of the season. *breathe!* I'd heard a rumor along those lines, but OUCH!

But if Sawyer spends 1/3 of the season in the shape he's in away from medical care, since Ana Lucia is ostensibly going to meet up with Jack early on and there's not going to be the big group of other (such a loaded word, now) survivors that we've been hypothesizing? When he does meet up with Jack again he is going to be in some rough shape, and it's going to be H/C gold.

Okay, fine. I'm possible a terrible person. But he's just so pretty when he's hurting...

;-D That doesn't make you a terrible person. I'm a big hurt/comfort fan too (points to icon). But, given how little attention is given to previous injuries and addictions on the island, I --sadly -- don't think Sawyer will still need much doctoring by the time he meets up with Jack. Unless they want to play it as he's at death's door the whole time, but I don't see them doing that either. So I think someone else will end up tending to Sawyer. I would love Jack to get in there, though, OF COURSE, like in all those wonderful stories I've read over the summer.

Speaking of, is "Offstage Lines" on permanent hiatus? *makes puppy eyes at you* I know you had wanted to rework the last chapter a bit.

Well, there's still Michael or Jin! ;) Ana Ana could free up Kate so that she may go off and molest Charlie. Okay, that's my fantasy. *tucks it back away*

And by season's end, the cause of the plane crash will no longer be a mystery.

Wow. Really? And then what's left...? Not that I doubt that JJ, et. al. have something more up their tricksy sleeves.

What I want to know is--from another preview--who is the "familiar face" Shannon sees in the jungle??
halfdutch

No, no pairing Sawyer with Michael or Jin! God, some writer's going to do it, aren't they? But Michael/Jin is already a pairing, so ... Sawyer's on his own! ;-D

Kate and Charlie, eh? I did not know that!

I hadn't heard about a "familiar face' - but that's got to be Boone, reappearing, a la Jack's dad? If he had a bigger part again, wouldn't we have heard? Except, they kept the secret of Ian's leaving the cast amazingly quiet.

*quivers in anticipation of new season*

Shoot, I'm sorry, babe!

But if it were really bad news, there would be much more woe and grief and definitely phone calls!

I knew about the 1/3 thing, so I'm not surprised by that one. The Jolene one..yeah, I'm a bit surprised at that, only because I had never heard it before, but at the wedding of Jack, or the party before, didn't they say how they met??

And I can't wait to see exactly why that plane went down...I'm hoping that Walt *you know he has some weird abilities* had nothing to do with it.
