"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.

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.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian
