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!

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

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

The Daily Beast: "How The Killing Went Wrong"

While the uproar over the U.S. version of The Killing has quieted, the show is still a pale imitation of the Danish series on which it is based. Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, "How The Killing Went Wrong," in which I look at how The Killing has handled itself during its second season, and compare it to the stunning and electrifying original Danish series, Forbrydelsen , on which it is based. (I recently watched all 20 episodes of Forbrydelsen over a few evenings.) The original is a mind-blowing and gut-wrenching work of genius. It’s not necessary to rehash the anger that followed in the wake of the conclusion last June of the first season of AMC’s mystery drama The Killing, based on Søren Sveistrup’s landmark Danish show Forbrydelsen, which follows the murder of a schoolgirl and its impact on the people whose lives the investigation touches upon. What followed were irate reviews, burnished with the “burning intensity of 10,000 white-hot suns
