Lost is back in less than a week!
And to promote the best little island show since, well, ever (sorry, Gilligan and Ricardo Montalban) the show’s big bosses Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse just showed critics episode three of the new fifth season, and ponied up scoop!
So what do you need to know? Well, for starters, the time travel-kookiness is off the charts in season five.
But that’s OK. They’re making it up to us.
Lost fans: You want answers, you’ll get answers.
Viewers left wondering where that confounding island went at the end of May’s season finale will get immediate answers when the ABC adventure-mystery hurtles into its much-awaited fifth season Wednesday (9 p.m. ET/PT).
Some spoilers, read or not !
What we do know is that we, the “ Lost” couch potato castaways, saw Ben turn the wheel hidden in a room below the unfamiliar Dharma Orchid Station, the sky white out, and the island vanish. All of this culminated a time-traveling, Emmy-nominated season of past and future stories that split up the “Lost” tribe — rescuing some people after 108 days, leaving some to linger on the island, and killing others.
If none of the above makes sense to you, yes, it’s too late to pick “Lost” up now. That’s what DVDs are for.
