Caroline: [Saw the new information, stresses about WHAT DOES IT MEAN?] So it begins, huh? "Welcome to the wonderful world of not knowing what the hell's going on.
Mae: That's actually the name of the show in many other countries: "What the hell is going on?"
Mae: Should be. It is in my own little world, i know that for a fact.
Dark's got new synopses for the first two episodes of a little show we call Lost, and I'm stressed about speccing. So it begins, indeed.
Here are the new promo pics--they don't give much away.
The synopses are way more interesting:
For 5x01, "Because You Left":
THE REMAINING SURVIVORS START TO FEEL THE EFFECTS CAUSED BY THE ISLAND BEING MOVED, AND JACK AND BEN BEGIN THEIR QUEST TO REUNITE THE OCEANIC 6 - ALONG WITH LOCKE'S BODY - IN ORDER TO RETURN TO THE ISLAND
The remaining island survivors start to feel the effects of the aftermath of moving the island, and Jack and Ben begin their quest to reunite the Oceanic 6 in order to return to the island with Locke's body in an attempt to save their former fellow castaways.
Okay, so this shines a little light on who has to go back to the island: the Oceanic Six and Locke. And what does that mean, "start to feel the effects caused by the island being moved"? Seems like it means "start traveling awkwardly through time," judging by the other spoilers we've heard.
As for whose centricity this is? (I'm holding onto the fact that, even if it's not so much flashback/flashforward in nature, there will still be centricity in some way, shape, or form.) Sounds like a left-behinder. Juliet? Or maybe it's Locke. Show how he ended up in that coffin. Maybe.
For 5x02, "The Lie":
THE REMAINING SURVIVORS START TO FEEL THE EFFECTS CAUSED BY THE ISLAND BEING MOVED, AND JACK AND BEN BEGIN THEIR QUEST TO REUNITE THE OCEANIC 6 - ALONG WITH LOCKE'S BODY
Michelle Rodriguez Guest Stars as Ana Lucia
Hurley and Sayid are on the run from the cops after stumbling into trouble at the safehouse; the island survivors come under attack by unknown forces; and an old friend offers some shocking advice to Kate in order to ensure that "the lie" remain a secret.
Definitely sounds like Kate-centric, if only because it's called "The Lie" and the synopsis alludes to Kate and this aforementioned lie.
Which sounds like The Aaron Lie.
Mae and I were sitting here a few minutes ago trying to think of what (and who!) this might me.
'Cause "an old friend" sounds like Cassidy, but the guest cast list looks complete and doesn't include Kim Dickens.
Obviously, the release mentions Ana-Lucia, but what would she really have to say to Kate? It's not Claire, we don't think, because we know Emilie de Ravin's not supposed to be around this season. For fluffy Jaby reasons, we'd love for it to be a pregnant Penny Widmore, saying Jack and Kate should have another baby, but we (A) don't think this is very plausible and (B) don't see how this would help keep the lie a secret.
But we know that Kate needs convincing for her to make it back to the island. And, much as it pains me to say it, Cassidy and Ana-Lucia seem like they could work at convincing Kate, if only as The Other Women Who've Done The Unthinkable.
I mean, "shocking advice" could just mean "go back to the island, Kate," right?
Seriously--welcome to the wonderful world of not knowing what the hell is going on.
