lost-logo.jpgOnly six-weeks remain until LOST's February 7th return and with the latest LOST Moments revealing ever more tantalizing glimpses into the goings on island-side, we figured it was time to put the clues and hunches against the spoilers and try to figure out what the fate will be of some of our favorite characters. The result? A spoilerific road-map of possibilities.


Ben will no doubt live. Sci-Fi Talk did an interview with Michael Emerson, who plays Ben, and he indicated he would be filming for the entire season. But what about Ben's influence, or lack thereof? Nimble-eared folks probably recall hearing that bully Pickett mention "Jacob". A lot of theorists out there are quick to point out in Bible terms Jacob is Ben's father. Carlton Cuse said in the Stephen King issue of Entertainment Weekly (quoted here at Spoilerfix) that the names do have meanings. This could indicate anything from Jacob is Ben's father, to more of a symbolic meaning that Jacob is Ben's father figure.

No matter how you slice it, looks like Ben used the resources of the others against the wishes of their defacto leader. Is Ben the leader of a sect? Is big daddy going to be mad? Why are the other others hidden away? Is it the sickness? Or something worse?


We are going to learn a lot about Juliet's off island life in the first episode back "Not in Portland". Amongst other things, we will learn a connection with Ethan Rom. Also, according to the official ABC description for the episode Juliet will do something that will put her in peril with her people. My prediction? Juliet shoots Pickett and leaves with Kate and Sawyer, just as her flash-back reveals a love connection with Ethan Rom, leaving us to question if she is on a mission to help the 815'rs or get revenge for her fallen hubby.


We last saw Jack totally in control with the fate of Ben's kidney in his hands. LOST Moments reveal that he is going to lose radio contact with Kate just after learning that there is no way off the island. Naturally, he can't leave the operating room without losing his leverage; something tells me these others have limits where Ben's life is concerned and letting the only surgeon possibly escape without stitching up Ben's kidney aint gonna happen. Juliet will be the hero that gets Kate and Sawyer off the island, Jack will be left to face the consequences of his actions.

Prediction? Ben will make a stunning recovery and offer to give jack what he bartered for, a trip off the island, but the offer is going to be usurped by Jacob. As far as LOST moment five goes, this is what the tailies-now-among-the-others have come to see: Jacob. As far as what pied piper tune got them there... we will be left with a classic LOST cliff-hangar and will have to wait until later in the season to find out.

Want more? Like a good LOST stall tactic, I'm outta here! But be sure to tune in tomorrow for Part Two: Kate, Sawyer, and Desmond.

Top 10 TV Characters of 2006


Remember the college application question that asked if you could have dinner with anyone – who would it be? The standard answers included Jesus, grandparents, Abe Lincoln, etc. But we skipped that question and chose another because we couldn’t think of anyone interesting enough, at age 17 anyway, to keep our attention span during the dinner hour.

But now we’re older and wiser, living in LA and addicted to the TV shows constantly stored on our DVR. So we finally decided on 10 people who we’d like to have dinner with. Of course, all these “people” are interesting fictional TV characters from this season, but they’d sure keep us entertained while passing the green bean casserole:

  1. Dexter Morgan: Showtime’s serial killer (played by Michael C. Hall) is one of the most complex characters on TV right now. On Dexter, he works as a blood spatter expert for the Miami-Dade police by day – while killing the bad serial killers at night. More cranberries, anyone?
  2. Dr. Christian Troy: He’s the amoral Miami plastic surgeon on Nip/Tuck with a penchant for sleeping with almost anything that moves. But because Julian McMahon is so nice to look at -- who'd need dessert?
  3. Michael Scott: The Office. Steve Carell's alter ego could regale dinner guests with war stories from the trenches of Scranton's Dunder Mifflin. Then Dr. Troy would offer to care of his nose for him.

  4. Barney Stinson: When did Doogie Howser, M.D., become funny? Neil Patrick Harris is excel—wait for it—lent as a suit-wearing womanizer on How I Met Your Mother. Which he is definitely not.

  5. Hiro Nakamura: On Heroes, Hiro’s (Masi Oka) English is a bit spotty right now, but his time shifting-transporting powers are kick ass in any language. Can you imagine the party tricks?

  6. Dr. Greg House: Sure, he’s the Vicodin-addicted jerk on Fox's House, but if you suddenly develop a case of an Ebola-like disease after dinner, you’ll probably want House (Hugh Laurie) and his crack team giving you the once-over.

  7. Cristina Yang: Sure, Sandra Oh's doc can be bitchy and moody. And self-centered. And emotionally clueless. But that’s what we love about her. She’s hands-down the best character on Grey’s Anatomy.

  8. Henry Gale/Benjamin Linus: Whether he’s on Lost as the leader of “The Others” or the serial killer William Hinks on The Practice, Michael Emerson plays bug-eyed and creepy to a T.

  9. Horatio Caine: David Caruso’s wooden portrayal of Det. Horatio Caine is always entertaining and nothing short of sheer genius on CSI: Miami. Besides, we could all gather ‘round the table and play a live version of the Horatio Caine drinking game.

  10. Nancy Botwin: Mary-Louise Parker plays Agrestic’s favorite suburban mom/pot dealer on Showtime's Weeds. Her expressive eyes can say more in a second than a dozen pages of dialogue. Plus, you know she’d bring the best brownies for dessert.
