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 .

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.
