…and if you don’t know what we’re counting down to*, then you are not a true “Lost” fan.
We threw a bone to Chicago Cubs fans last weekend. Now we’ll do so for “Lost” fans. Here’s some of the juicy off-season gossip and scuttlebutt we’ve gleaned (almost exclusively from Doc Jensen) about season six!
How might Lost accomplish [bringing Season One characters back], given most of these departed folks are, like, dead? TBD, though Lindelof does remind us that Lost was figuratively time traveling (see: flashbacks and flash-forwards) long before it was literally time traveling (see: season 5). Then again, when it comes to Season Six, Lindelof tells Digital Spy, “anything goes.”
Doc Jensen also offers analysis on four possible scenarios for how season six will unfold. Scenario #1 [Deus Ex Jacobus] seems the most straightforward and certainly the most plausible, but there’s something intriguing about Scenario #2 [Oh, Jughead — Such a Joker!]. Scenarios #3 and #4 just strike us as Doc Jensen loopy.
Title of season six premiere: “LA X.” What does this mean? Two possibilities. 1) It refers to the Los Angeles airport [LAX]. But then why the space? 2) Doc Jensen speculates it may mean present day Los Angeles (Los Angeles ’10, as in 2010). Or — and this is just us speculating — the X means Mulder and Scully of X-Files fame will join the cast for the final season. Hooray!
Here’s a season six preview made by Black Box for your viewing pleasure. Caution: The dramatic crescendo of the music (those pounding tribal drums!) made us wet our pants from excitement. You’ve been forewarned.
And finally, for the truly obsessed, ABC.com has been screening a six-part series entitled “Mysteries of the Universe: The Dharma Initiative.” On an Essential Viewing scale of 1-10, we rate them a 2. Plus you have to watch a KIA commercial first. Nonetheless, we include the link here. Why? Because we care.
* = ABC doesn’t have a date for the season six premiere, indicating only that it will happen in February. Hence our math on the day countdown was to February 1. If this does not match your countdown calendar, then you are an even bigger “Lost” fan than we are. Congratulations, we suppose. This video is for you.
