the producers always said that no character was too big to be killed off..
1) Despite wide-spread rumors, Matthew Fox's character, Jack, will not be shot by Juliet when LOST returns on February 7th. In-fact, Juliet will shoot Pickett who is on the verge of killing Sawyer, leaving herself in a precarious position with the others.
3) Sawyer, and Kate, return the beach at the end of the episode.
5) Need further evidence that Ben survives? Currently the plan is for the season three finale to be Ben centric.
Eps. 311 is called " Enter 77 " and features Sami and Farah, an Iraqi couple who own a restaurant in Paris. So I'm thinking Sayid-centric?
Question: Oh, all seeing, all knowing, all scoopage-having Ausiello, lavish us with some loot on Lost. All asinine alliteration aside, I want some dangerously spoilerific scoopage.— Ben Fancher
Ausiello: I dunno how dangerous this is, but I just found out that Cheech Marin has been cast as Hurley's dad. He'll appear in the big guy's next flashback episode, slated to air Feb. 28.
Question: Could you shed any light on the rumor that Jack is going to die on Lost?— Loren
Ausiello: Listen to me closely, Loren, 'cause I'm only going to say this once: Jack is not going to die on Lost.
In the pub, Desmond is talking with a friend/business partner (?) about his recent abilities of prediction, trying to convince him that he has lived this particular moment before. The friend is a middle-eastern looking guy, don't think has anything to do with anything. The bar patrons are following a Brit football match. Des tells his friend several things will happen in a particular order, like who's making the next score, who walks through the door, and an angry patron who attacks the bartender. Des is getting very worked up because the friend isn't taking him seriously.
Finally, the moment he's insisting will happen comes. Only one of the 3 things actually happens. Des is devastated. He insists they wait and keep watching.
Ultimately, what happens is Des is really broken down by his failure. The next day, he's drowning his sorrows at the bar again, talking to the bartender. The game is on again. This time the other 2 events happen, but not the 3rd. Just as he had predicted would happen yesterday, a burly guy stalks into the pub with a cricket mallet and takes a swing at the bartender. The bartender ducks and Des takes a nasty blow to the head. THAT was not part of his premonition. Now Des is really messed up. End scene.
"He's vulnerable now," he said, referring to the trauma under Jack's surgical knife that could lead to Ben's demise. "There's much more operating room drama to come; the operation has even more complications that lead to a number of crises," he added, carefully choosing his words. New, powerful characters also will be introduced, and "there will be a struggle for power within the Others' community." Then he paused and smiled. "I have to be cagey about what I say."
Ben's relationship with Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) is admittedly "sketchy," with evidence that he might have some romantic feelings for her that are not reciprocated.
Though the Others appear to be doing some "seemingly mean and manipulative things," Emerson cautioned that viewers still don't know their intentions. Furthermore, he advised the audience to withhold judgment about his character. "Ben is sometimes an actor," he said mysteriously. "But by nature, I don't think he's a liar."
Q from Yvonne: The whispers have always scared me and fascinated me--will they 'come back around' this season? More scary island things please!
Damon: Oh we're bringing the SCARY, Yvonne! Can't promise the whispers,) but we've only just begun to peel back the most frightening aspects of the island... and trust me, the 'monster' and the Others are NOTHING compared to what ELSE is in the jungle.
Jack is in command, as the fate of one of The Others' lives rests in his hand. Meanwhile, Kate and Sawyer find an ally in one of The Others, and Juliet makes a shocking decision that could endanger her standing with her people. [...] That first episode looks like it may give us another look at Others Town before the crash, as it features William Mapother as Ethan. We'll also be seeing more of Alex (Tania Raymonde) and Karl (Blake Bashoff), the kid who was Sawyer's cage buddy for a short time early in the season.
The Widmores pop up in the Feb. 14 episode, which is called "Flashes Before Your Eyes" and involves Hurley and Charlie trying to figure out why Desmond has been acting so weird since the hatch went blooey.
Bai Ling reveals: The three episodes I have, it's very deep. My character says, "I can see who people are." [...] I am a very important character in [Jack's] life; like, his tattoos have something to do with me. [My character name is] Achara [...]. But, you know, what is funny about my part... she seduces him, and she's really forward, and she behaves the way she wants, which is really beautiful. It's very healthy and honest and very powerful, in a way. We're lovers, but I am kind of a mystery to him. He doesn't really know me. I don't allow him to visit me, I don't allow him to know what I really do — we're together, we sleep together, we hang out together, we're lovers. And there is a mystery, he never knows what I do. There is also a psychological twist and betrayal.
Crazy Frenchwoman Rousseau (Mira Furlan), meanwhile, is back on Feb. 28. That episode will also have Hurley finding a junked car -- for reals, that's what it says -- on the island.
Apparently, amid fears that the ongoing string of critically challenged replacements will bury ABC's chances of regaining its Wednesday footing, execs at the alphabet network have dropped in on the LOST crew with the following proposition: how much money do you need to get LOST on the air early....

Two of your most prominent characters right now are Nikki and Paulo, the castaways who were introduced during the mini-season. Did you guys think that it was risky to introduce them that way?
Well, that is a case where the separation of the season actually hurts you, because Nikki [Kiele Sanchez] and Paulo [Rodrigo Santoro] are actually part of a larger story that has not yet quite activated itself, and what you have seen so far is really setup for the big payoff that happens in the middle of the season, around episodes 13 and 14. It’s just a scenario where all I can say is that we think the payoff of the idea is very cool, and you just have to trust us a little while longer.
With the return of survivalist Locke—as opposed to button-pushing Locke—will his tormented side continue to come out from time to time the way it did when he was pushing the button?
Yeah. I think Locke is constantly tested. I mean, the reality is that his character archetype is that of a seeker. So he is seeking meaning for his place on the island and understanding as to why he’s been given this gift from the island and what he’s supposed to do. I think that what was interesting about that story the first time we did it was that he wanted purpose, and the island said, “Okay. Your purpose is to push this button every 108 minutes.” And he became very angry at that being his purpose. It felt mundane to him. And he basically got punished for doubting the fact that that was his purpose. Not having pushed the button has basically…The characters don’t really have any understanding quite yet of how momentous it was to not push the button. Other than the fact of the not-pushing of the button is what crashed Oceanic 815 in the first place and brought them all there, the idea that the sky turned purple and the island shook… Events in the finale last year catastrophically screwed them all in a way that they don’t really appreciate yet.
Another loose end from the season finale of Season Two is what became of Michael and Walt.
It would be a massive and depressing cop-out to not see them again and to not fundamentally understand what happened to those characters. I would be loathe to say that we will never see Michael [Harold Perrineau] and Walt [Malcolm David Kelley] again, but in what context—whether they actually made it off of the island or any of those things—is all up for grabs. I would say that you’ll not be seeing them again any time soon.
Crave Online: On that second island, do you miss the cast you worked with last year like Naveen Andrews and Terry O'Quinn?
Michael Emerson: Yeah, it's funny, working on a show with as large a cast as we have here, your work gets sort of compartmentalized. There's still about half the cast that I've never had a scene with but I have missed working with Terry. I think there might be something coming up where we get to do some scene work together.
