Elizabeth Mitchell Says She's Flying to Hawaii "More Than Once" for "Lost" Next Season

Did Juliet detonate that bomb at the end of Season Five of Lost and kill herself in the process?

The answer isn't quite as simple as that, according to Elizabeth Mitchell, who addressed some of the circumstances regarding Juliet's return to Lost next season while appearing on a panel for ABC's V session at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in Pasadena.

According to Mitchell, nothing on Lost is as it seems and that holds true for Juliet's ultimate fate as well.

What did she have to say? Read on...

Asked by a critic whether Mitchell's character, Juliet Burke, "kaboomed" herself with the bomb at the end of Season Five of Lost, Mitchell was extremely non-committal about Juliet's life or death status but did tease some hints that could go a long way to explaining how often we'll be seeing her next season..

"It did seem that I 'kaboomed' myself with a bomb," said Mitchell. "I like that word anyway. I'll have to teach that to my four-year-old. 'Kaboomed' is good. I don't think it's going to be that way. I am going to be traveling to Hawaii more than once. So we'll see how that plays out because my producers have said it's all right, which is good."

"Yes, I will actually be back on Lost," she continued. "I can't say if I'm dead or not, but as with all things on Lost, it will be fairly tricky."

You heard it here, folks: Mitchell WILL be back next season on Lost, appearing in several episodes of the ABC drama's final season. Just what this means for Juliet remains to be seen, but get your theories formulating now...

Lost returns to ABC with its final season in 2010.

Yay! Very happy that the stunning and talented Elizabeth Mitchell will be back for the final season. As for her comment about her return ("...as with all things on Lost, it will be fairly tricky...") I wouldn't expect anything else!

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 .

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it
