Destiny Calls: The New "Lost" Season Five Promo

In exactly two months from today, we'll get to see just where (and, ahem, when) Ben moved the island to. But until then, those of us hungry for a new fix of ABC's Lost have had to wait quite some time.

Fortunately, ABC gave fans a brief sneak peek at Season Five of Lost with a new promo unveiled during tonight's Grey's Anatomy (and featuring "You Found Me," a new single from The Fray, from their forthcoming February 3rd album) that provides some new footage mixed with some familiar beats from the Oceanic Six's past.

Missed the promo? You can check it out after the jump.

Is that Desmond and Penny in bed together? Juliet and Sawyer holding hands? Hurley brandishing a gun and peering out of a door at some baddies? The castaways getting fired at with, well, fiery arrows by the hostiles? Charlotte staring down the barrel of some guns? Daniel Faraday being surprised by a yellow-suited Dharma worker from the Swan? You betcha to all of the above.

Just what does it mean? When and where are the castaways who survived the island moving? Well, just two months to go but my informed guess is that Ben moved the island back in time to the start of the Dharma Initiative arriving on the island and they're in the midst of dealing with some restless natives. I can't wait.

Lost returns on Wednesday, January 21st on ABC.

This looks amazing! I forgot this was on last night and was kicking myself this am so thanks for posting. How does that compass get imbedded in Locke's hand and why does he look so weirded out by it? Were Hurley and Sayid fighting Jack? It was hard to tell. Could have done without the shots of the fray though.

In a word: AWESOME.

Hmm...Locke with that virgin mary statue makes me think that Charlie's story is going to be addressed further in season 5. I hope he makes another guest appearance. Also, that shot of Hurley looking at Sayid lying on the ground? Sayid totally looked dead!

@anonymous. Dead or just unconscious? I don't think the producers would let Sayid's death just slip into a musical montage promo like that. Good thinking with the virgin Mary statue though. That could definitely mean more Charlie stuff.

Fantastic promo (although I could have done without the music video portion). I am so excited for the return of Lost. It looks like it's going to be an incredible season!

I'd say the Virgin Mary statue, as well as the drug plane falling again, could mean we'll see more references to Eko as well as Charlie in S5.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
