Recent Emmy winner Michael Emerson — just one the Losties who talked to us recently about the show's sixth and final season — promises it will resolve some but not all of fans' questions.
"I don't know if they'll be fully satisfied or not," Emerson says. "I don't know if we want to be fully satisfied. I think it's always best to go away wanting a little more."
You can forgive Emerson for being as enigmatic as his character, Ben Linus. But in interviews with TVGuide.com, his castmates (including Jorge Garcia, Daniel Dae Kim, and Terry O'Quinn) did clarify three things that have nagged us since the fifth-season finale in May:
1. Yes, the bomb exploded. "Basically a bomb went off at the end of the last one and all bets are off," Garcia said. Adds Kim: "At the end of last season there was a big explosion." Of course, neither of them guaranteed that the bomb was Jughead, but we'll just assume it was to keep our heads from spinning.
2. We haven't seen the last of Juliet. A well-placed source tells us Elizabeth Mitchell, who plays the tragic doctor, just flew back from shooting in Hawaii and that she may return there to shoot again.
3. But we probably have seen the last of Libby. "It looks like we're probably not going to see Libby," Garcia says. "They'll probably deal with the story, but [actress Cynthia Watros, who plays Libby] may not be joining us."
Of course, the world of Lost is full of few constants and many variables. But whatever the writers have planned is worthy of the show's past secrets and reveals, O'Quinn promises: "When I read the first script, it's the first time in the whole series that I said, 'Wow, that's amazing,'" he said.
What Lost mysteries do you most want to see resolved when Season 6 begins in 2010?

True Blood’s Carrie Preston (Arlene Fowler) and her husband Michael Emerson from ABC’s ‘Lost’ will star in the Thomas Haywood production of “A Woman Killed with Kindness” at The Theatre at St. Clement’s on December 28th. This domestic tragedy chronicles the fall of a pure wife, the fate of a young virgin, and dissects the nature of revenge.
The plot tells the story about a married couple, John Frankford and Mary Acton, whose marriage is ruined when Master Frankford invites an impoverished gentleman into his house as a companion and his wife falls for the interloper’s wiles. She is caught in her adulterous affair and, instead of being given a harsh or death sentence, is sent away to live a lonely but comfortable life. Full of remorse, she gives herself a harsher punishment and starves herself to death, but receives forgiveness from her husband in her dying moments.
The main plot is contrasted with a subplot about virtuous Susan Mountford, who is prostituted by her brother out to Sir Francis Acton (Anne’s brother), as Susan’s brother is deeply in debt to him. Susan retains her virtue, and in the end, Sir Francis Acton falls in love with and marries Susan and discharges her brother’s debt.
The domestic tragedy play is considered to be Thomas Haywood’s masterpiece and was first performed in 1603 and published in 1607. The play will be directed by Kay Matschullat.

Hey, remember when we thought this show was about the Zoo of Death or Purgatory? Back then, when things were simple and carefree, all we had to cope with was tropical polar bears and jungle mechanosaurs. Hahaha.
These days, Lost is about everything from love and charismatic leadership to reanimation and electromagnetism, and it would be patently exhausting to follow if it weren't so rocketship fast and so fraught with thrills, chills, spills and just damn compelling feelings...
Are you ready to tackle this week's Sawyer-centric outing, "LeFleur," and get our exclusive dish on which favorite character from the past is getting a four-episode return engagement? Grab your girlfriend's brownies, gas up the blue Volkswagen, and get in here...
SAWYER = AWESOME
Ladies and gentleman, meet James "Sawyer" Ford, aka James "Jim" LeFleur, head badass in charge of Dharma security and de facto leader of the surviving Island Losties, Jin, Juliet, Miles and Daniel.
After four seasons of wrassling the rest of the Lost A-Team for power, Sawyer is finally in charge. (And it's about bleeding time, too.)
Furthermore, Sawyer has finally gotten in touch with his sensitive side, trying to save old bald friends who jump down wells, rescuing women and babies, inspiring anxious doctors, sympathizing the drunk and despondent, and last but not least, picking daisies to give to nice ladies. How far we have all come!
And all of the above Sawyer character developments are right and good, with one notable and very important exception: Cleanshaven Sawyer sucks. (Fix please!)
Craziness – crazy that we are already at the mid-point of Season 5! And even more crazy that I think the questions in my head far outnumber the answers we have left to (hopefully) get over the last season and a half of our favorite show. Enjoy this week’s episode, because I believe we are due for a one week hiatus after “LaFleur” – which in case you were wondering, is French for “Flower”.
ABC’s Official Show Description
“Sawyer perpetuates a lie with some of the other island survivors in order to protect themselves from mistakes of the past.”
The episode preview would suggest that we are going to get the reunion of the Oceanic 6 (or 3) with those originally left behind. So, a few questions to ponder heading into tonight’s episode (and to stimulate some pre-show commentary):
- What is the current time period the Island is now in?
- Why did Ben really kill Locke, given Locke was a nanosecond from committing suicide? Lots of theories out there…
- Presented yet again with the never-ending love triangle that is Jack, Kate, Sawyer; who will Kate ultimately choose?
