LOST – Things don’t stay buried on the Island

You’ll be seeing many characters you haven’t seen since the first season” said Damon Lindelof, one of the creator/producers of LOST at the recent Comic Con. Yup, it seems like the writers of LOST are planning to give some deceased characters a last hurrah before the series ends on May 2010. So who’s gonna show up and who’s not? Here’s the rundown

*SPOILER ALERT!! Look away if you don’t want to be spoiled*



Death: Season 5 Episode 17 – Incident pt 2
Sacrificing herself by hitting a hydrogen bomb repeatedly with a rock in an attempt to change the course of history. This happened after she fell down a shaft after being pulled down by a strong electromagnetic force.

Capacity of return:

  • See her immediately to resolve the cliffhanger ending
  • Going to be in “two tenths of the season” (20%)
  • “And there’ll be some… I don’t know… you know that thing where you kind of sigh a little bit because there’s a bit of a resolution, we will have that, which is good.” – Elizabeth Mitchell

Personal theory:
She’ll be in some alternate timeline that will see her reunited with her sister.


Death: Season 5 Episode 14 – The Variable
Idiotically went to the Others’ camp and demanded Richard, at gunpoint, to take him to his mom (young version of his mom) only to be shot by her!! Of course, the young version of his mom didn’t know she just shot his own son.

Capacity of return:

  • At Comic Con, Damon and Carlton said that we will see Faraday again

Personal theory:
Either in a flashback or an alternate timeline. But I’m positively sure that he’ll show up to explain what is going on after the explosion whether it’s an alternate timeline, reset, our Losties mind jumping through time, course correction, etc


Death: Season 3 Episode 23 – Through the Looking Glass part 3
Locked himself in a flooded room to save his friend Desmond. Before that he managed to 1) turn off the jamming signal thus enabling Jack to radio the freighter 2) contact Penny thus made it possible for her to rescue the survivors and reunite with his lover Desmond 3) warned the rest that the Freighter folks aren’t entirely who they say they are. In other words, Charlie’s sacrifice was significant.

Capacity of return:

My personal theory:
I’m not sure how but I have a feeling that his return will be something big. Just look at the hints they dropped: Hurley’s carrying a guitar case given by Jacob, Sun finding Charlie’s driveshaft ring and Dominic Monaghan’s appearance at the LOST panel in Comic Con.

Charlie’s return will probably significantly drive the plot just as his death was. How? Most likely it has something to do with Claire’s and Aaron’s storyline

Speaking of Claire…


Disappearance: Season 4 Episode 10 – Something Nice Back Home
Claire saw his ghost daddy and followed him to the jungle leaving baby Aaron with Sawyer. Next, she was in a creepy Cabin with her dad and acting strange. Finally, she was in Kate’s dream and warning her not to bring Aaron back to the island.

Capacity of return:

  • Back as a regular cast again after a one season absence

Personal Theory:
We last saw her in a cabin with her dad and that Cabin is now empty so she must be somewhere else. I think she’s in the temple or some other mysterious island location that we haven’t seen yet. Just like how Faraday served as our guide through the scientific element of the show, Claire’s story may play the same role but for the supernatural element (Jacob, MIB, Temple, etc).


Death: Season 1 Episode 20 – Do No Harm
Locke temporarily lost his ability to use his leg therefore he asked Boone to climb up a cliff and search a crashed beechcraft. Locke believed he’ll find something that can help them open the hatch…Locke was wrong. Instead Boone found some heroin and later the plane fell down the cliff and seriously injured Boone. Boone then suffered a slow painful death while being treated by Jack and his crazy ‘JackFaces’.

Capacity of return

  • unknown but he’s definitely back
  • LOST remains my best experience as an actor, and my departure was
    really traumatising for me. I don’t know in what form or shape Boone
    will be back, and I don’t care. Nothing could have pleased me more than
    to take part of the last season of the show that has brought me so
    much. I’ve already prepared my luggage!
    ” – Ian Somerhalder

Personal Theory:
In an alternate timeline or as ghost that haunts Locke/Flocke. I think he’ll probably be in an alternate timeline (IF an alternate timeline is created after the explosion). But I’m sure whatever form he’ll return in, I don’t think he will play a big role…not as significant as Charlie. But hey it’s LOST..anything can happen…he could be the smoke monster!!


Death: Season 4 Episode 14 – There’s No place like Home Part 2
Was freezing a ticking time bomb which bought some time for the rest of the survivors to hop into the helicopter and escape the freighter before it exploded. Unfortunately, Michael was still aboard when it did.

Interest in return:
Only if there’s some way that they’re getting back to all of those
original characters that we started the journey with, and if that’s so
then that makes sense to me. I don’t know other than that how it makes
” – Harold Perrineau

Personal opinion:
If a character like Boone is back then I want Michael to be back as well. I would be satisfied if he only return as ghost or in Walt’s dream. I want one last reunion between Michael and Walt please!!

**UPDATE 29/01/2010**

Damon and Carlton confirmed his return during the TCA press tour

“There are two big hopes I have for Michael,” says Harold. “One is I hope he gets to apologize to his son.” (Unlikely, says exec producer Carlton Cuse, explaining it’s tricky to bring back Malcolm David Kelley, now 17, because “he looks much older than his character. But we’re still seeing if there’s a way to work that out.”)

Harold’s second hope: “That I get to apologize to Libby, since her death was really an accident.” (Oops!)


Death: Season 2 Episode 20 – Two For the Road

Michael accidentally shot her after shooting Ana Lucia

Personal opinion:

The producers have said that Libby’s story is over so she’s not coming back.

**UPDATE 29/01/2010**

SHE’s BACK!!! – confirmed by Damon and Carlton during TCA press tour


Death: Season 2 Episode 6 – Abandoned

She was accidently shot by Ana Lucia

Personal opinion:

If Boone is returning then why not Shannon?

**UPDATE 29/01/2010**

Not looking good:

Reliable inside sources tell me she’s the only original cast member so far who has been asked back to the series and unable to return. She has not shot any new scenes for the final Lost season.

However, according to her rep, Maggie had a very good reason for not making the trek to Hawaii: “She did three movies back to back to back and just got back from filming last Thursday.”


**UPDATE 04/03/2010**


“We’re really excited about having her back on the show,” says Cuse, “and we have a good story for her.” The producers would not specify how many episodes she would appear in.


Ana Lucia

Death: Season 2 Episode 20 – Two For the Road

Michael shot Ana Lucia to free Ben

Personal opinion:

I think her story is done and her appearance in early Season 5 served as a little ‘final bow’ for her character.

**UPDATE 04/03/2010**

Confirmed to be back!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Rodriguez will reprise her role as late 815 tailie Ana-Lucia in at least one of the show’s final episodes.




Death: Season 3 Episode 5 – Cost of Living
Eko refused to confess his sins to the ghostly vision of his brother. As a result, his ghost brother revealed his true self – A F***ing SMOKE MONSTER!! Smoke monster killed Eko.


Adewale is open for business. We have had talks about some things they might do for the final season and there are other dead folks coming back allegedly but at the moment it is still a maybe. A strong maybe but I have not shot anything yet or signed any contracts. But I’m hoping.” – Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

Personal opinion:
Eko was one of the coolest character and deserves to make at least one final appearance before the show ends. My idea? Eko’s ghost scaring the living shit out of Flocke!! OR Eko’s ghost vs Smoke monster!! I want a rematch!!!
