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 .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have

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 seas
