Countdown to "Lost": What Will Happen This Season?

Just what will happen this season on Lost?

With the season premiere of the sixth and final season of Lost only a few scant days away now, I thought it would be a good time to find out just what your theories are about (A) what happened to the castaways after Juliet detonated Jughead, (B) what will happen this season, and (C) what you predict the ending of the series will be.

I'd love to revisit these theories once Lost wraps up its run this May but, given that the first hour of Lost's season premiere is set to be shown to fans in Hawaii this weekend, we could engage in one final round of spoiler-free speculation for Lost before information begins pouring in.

So dig in: what do you think Team Darlton has in store for us this last season? What are your predictions about what will happen, who will die, who will end up together, and just what this all means? Discuss. (But, reminder: no spoilers!)

(Meanwhile, Part One of my interview with Lost showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse is up at The Daily Beast while Part Two--due to run this Tuesday--gets more into some elements of Season Six.)

Lost premieres Tuesday night with a one-hour retrospective special at 8 pm ET/PT and the two-hour sixth season premiere at 9 pm ET/PT on ABC.

Honestly...I have no idea but that's what's kind of exciting about it. Over the course of the show they have continued to amaze and surprise me and I'm sure they will continue to do so in the final season!

I think they screwed up the whole space time continuum and everything will be out of whack. Oceanic didn't crash so everyone back in LA and alive.
I am concerned about a reboot of the timeline. To me, that would say, "sorry you were invested in our show for five seasons. Ha didn't really happen." I do think the writers are more creative and kinder than that. If they do a reboot, it might be short lived. Who knows, actually. I trust the writers and I'm ready to see what they do.

It will end with Hurley in the Asylum, and as we pan back we realize he is autistic and dreamed the whole thing. Jacob is the candy striper. The smoke monster is a hidden bong he keep in the cart.

Hey, you do better!

I think at the beginning they'll all end up landing safely at LAX and then somehow, I have no idea how, but somehow they'll end up back on the island. Is it Tuesday yet?

I really have no idea. However, I'm pretty certain that even if everything re-sets this season, it will still have elements that we didn't see coming. (I don't expect this to be a Bobby Ewing in the shower season.) As for how it ends, I'm equally clueless. During season one, I don't think anyone could have predicted where the show would be now.

I'm predicting dramatic CPR, explosions, and someone saying "Don't tell me what I can't do."

Darlton keep saying that they have a new narrative device for this season. They've done flashbacks; they've done flashforwards. I'm guessing flash-sideways, and that's how they handle the alternate timelines while simultanously having action on 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 .

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

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
