Nestor Carbonell—who is again playing the mysterious, apparently ageless Richard Alpert in the fifth season of ABC’s Lost—told SCI FI Wire that he understands if viewers are a little disoriented by the show’s time-jumping storyline this year: So is he.
“I’m a little dizzy,” Carbonell admitted in an exclusive interview on Wednesday. “Initially, it took me, in the first episode, [a moment to figure out] ‘OK, when am I exactly? Where are we, and when am I?’ But, no, it didn’t take long. I think the viewers, after this episode [that aired Jan. 28], the show very much settles down, and you get the gist of the season, that you’re going to be dealing with some elements of time travel.”
