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 ha...it 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.

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

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 .

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
