‘Lost:’ Should Mr. Eko come back for the final season?


Lost-philes have been buzzing all summer about the dead (or possibly dead) island castaways we’ll see returning in some form to the island next season.

Daniel, Juliet, Charlie, Claire, Boone and Shannon are either confirmed or all but confirmed for a comeback.

But what about Mr. Eko?

While making the rounds to promote “G.I. Joe,” actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has also been pretty vocal about wanting to make another appearance on “Lost.”

He asked to be written off the show in Season 3, which didn’t exactly make the producers happy.

The doors might have opened for him again, though, since lots of his former co-stars appear to now be headed back. He gives hope to Eko fans wanting to see more, telling Entertainment Weekly:

<blockquote><div>We have had talks about some things they might do for the final season and there are other dead folks coming back allegedly but at the moment it is still a maybe. A strong maybe but I have not shot anything yet or signed any contracts. But I’m hoping.</div></blockquote>

So what do you think? Would you want to see more Eko?

In fact, which castaway are you MOST looking forward to seeing again?

A pre-Comic-Con roundup of ‘Lost’ news!


Lost-philes are anxiously awaiting July 25.

That’s the day “Lost” producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse make their annual appearance at San Diego’s Comic-Con, where they’ve previously spilled tidbits about upcoming episodes. And this year’s hoopla should be more cukoo than ever, given that it’s the show’s final season and all.

Anyway, despite Darlton’s so-called, self-imposed “radio silence,” lots of speculation has been rampant in the wake of Season 5’s bomb-dropping finale. So here’s a roundup of some of the juiciest island rumors:

• Dead castaways will be revived! In this Digital Spy interview, Darlton wouldn’t confirm whether Jughead-bashing Juliet is dead or reveal their plan to end the series. But they sure do seem to confirm the scuttlebutt that departed cast members (Shannon? Charlie?) will be making appearances. As previously reported, Emilie de Ravin will be back as Claire. But is she dead or not?

• Ian Somerhalder is open to returning as Boone. TV Guide caught up with Ian, who didn’t knock down rumors that he might return to the island, even though he’s starring in the new CW drama, “The Vampire Diaries.”

• Mr. Eko still loves “Lost.” Also in TV Guide, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje says that he’d be open to reprising the role of Eko, even though he asked producers to release him from the show after just one season. (At the time, both of his parents had just died.)

• Write the show’s theme song! Okay, so your tune won’t open the new season when the series returns early next year. But your clever little ditty could be featured at the aforementioned Comic-Con! You’ve got until Thursday, July 16, to hand in submissions. Go here for more details.
