"We're Going on Vacation, Baby": Sneak Peak at Footage from the "Lost" Season Five Premiere

Blood tests. Nefarious lawyers. Hastily grabbed cash. Tom Irwin.

What do these things all have in common? For a start, they all appear in a scene from the upcoming Season Five premiere of ABC's Lost, airing January 21st.

In the first full footage from Season Five to date, we're treated to a glimpse into the daily home life of Kate Austen and Lil' Aaron, if their typical day just happens to include receiving a court order to provide blood samples. Yes, it seems as though someone has tipped off law firm Agostini & Norton about Kate not being Aaron's actual mother... and now they have obtained court permission to take samples from both Kate and Aaron to prove (or disprove) a DNA relationship between the two. (And the lawyers? Naturally, they refuse to disclose the identity of their client.)

Don't have a Dharma password? You can watch the clip in full after the jump.

Kate, naturally, slams the door in their faces--including partner Dan Norton (Tom Irwin) who likes to carry out the firm's dirty work, apparently--and tells them to come back with the cops... and then she ferrets out the stash of cash she hid in the wardrobe and a gun and packs their bags. (As she walks out of the house, she walks right past an adorable framed photo of Jack and Aaron.)

So just who tipped off the lawyers? Could it be that Jack had a crisis of conscience? Or, far more likely, is this just the opening salvo on a new war front as Sun makes her play? After all, she knows that Kate isn't Aaron's mother and, unlike Jack, has no romantic feelings for Kate. Plus, we did see Sun meet up with Charles Widmore in the Season Four finale. Could it be that the two have formed an alliance of sorts and that she is supplying him with inside information about the Oceanic Six?

The wait until January just got a little more difficult.

Lost returns January 21st on ABC.

Yikes! Looks like there's some serious turbulence ahead for Kate and Lil' Aaron. And we wouldn't have it any other way! Can't wait for the season to start!

I can't wait! Great scene. I think you're right and it's got to be Sun who tipped off the creepy lawyers. Not good. Not good at all.

Agreed. Unless Jack suddenly came to his senses and alerted Claire's family. After all they are related.

If this makes her want to pack up her things and go back somewhere, I guess we can't discount that this could be part of Ben's "i have some ideas" about how to get everyone to agree.

I love Lost. Love it, love it, love it. But the show really should stay away from the law. The trial in Eggtown was farcical from a legal perspective. And this is too: Kate and Aaron have a liberty interest in their bodily integrity, and it would violate their due process rights for a court to order them to submit to blood tests without prior notice and an opportunity for a hearing (which would, among other things, allow them to learn who was seeking the test). The only possible excuse for this is if the lawyers don't really have a court order, but are bluffing.

I still can't wait for the premier. But this leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Actually, it sounds like he says "Agrostini & Norton" with an "R" in the first name.

It's definitely AGOSTINI. Great clip though I do hope that the lawyers are bluffing and don't actually have a court order and just want Kate to run...

There is no doubt this was set up by Ben, causing Kate and Aaron to run, so Jack can offer them a trip home to the island.

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 .

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

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.
