‘Lost’ celebrates 100th episode tonight! Check out sneak peeks…

April
29

“Lost” celebrates its 100th episode with tonight’s installment, and it sounds like it couldn’t have chosen a better one to honor this milestone.

I’ve read that the producers didn’t plan for “The Variable” to mark the show’s centennial, but having Daniel Faraday finally spill all that he knows about the island seems pretty appropriate to me.

Not only does Daniel supposedly offer up some mind-blowing explanations about Mystery Island, but – AND HERE’S THE OBLIGATORY SPOILER ALERT! – this episode features characters that may just fill in the blanks on Daniel’s back story, too.

I’m talking about the Widmores (young and old!) and Eloise Hawking (young and old!). I’m talking about Theresa, Daniel’s old Oxford girlfriend whose mind was scrambled by his time-travel experiments.

And I’m speculating that we might discover the surprise identity of Daniel’s caretaker, who at some point in time was helping the brain-addled scientist when he was crying over a news report about Oceanic 815 (and whose face we oddly never saw).

There’s also major gossip that the major death that’s been floating around the “Lost” rumor mill happens TONIGHT!

You’ll have to search the blogosphere yourself if you want to know who may or may not be a goner, but check out the video below for a taste of what else is to come in this big kahuna of an episode.

‘Lost’ recap: We obsess over ‘Some Like It Hoth’

April
16

Somehow “Lost” always knows when our brains are on the verge of exploding, and that’s when they bring us an episode like “Some Like It Hoth.”

Because after going through back-to-back, ultra-emotional episodes like the last two Kate- and Ben-centric installments, sometimes you’ve just got to take a breather and enjoy the funny.

And funny it was: Miles and Hurley made for a hilarious tag team, basically offering “The Sixth Sense” as a one-hour dramedy.

They see – or hear – dead people. And sometimes play chess with them.

You’ve gotta love Hurley, right? While the others are desperately trying to figure out if they can use their time traveling to prevent death and destruction, good ol’ Hugo just wants to rid pop culture of the Ewoks.

Dude. Awesome.

It wasn’t all fun and games though.

We got confirmation that Dr. Pierre Chang is indeed Miles’ daddy.

And we learned why Miles wanted Ben to pay him the seemingly random figure of $3.2 million last season. (It was double the amount Charles Widmore was giving him to join the freighter squad, although $1.6 million isn’t any less random – other than 16 being one of the Numbers.)

If you were paying close attention, we got a wee bit more data on some of the Ajira 316 survivors, too.

Oh yeah, and polar bears poop a lot.

So hold on to your fillings, Lost-philes, and let’s dive into the details…

‘Lost’ recap: We obsess over ‘Dead Is Dead’

April
9

Truly, is there such a thing as a bad Ben-centric “Lost” episode?

As usual, the writers and Michael Emerson gave Ben the perfect blend of cold-blooded nastiness and heartfelt sympathy.

We still can’t figure this guy out, and boy, can he still surprise us.

Is he a cutthroat killer?

Absolutely. Just ask Caesar. (And no, I did not in ANY WAY see that one coming, but more on that later.)

But does Ben also get all choked up by a widdle baby?

You betcha. We’ve all been wondering if there’s a line Ben won’t cross, and unbelieveably, this is it.

He’s got a soft spot for little kids and their mommies. Go figure.

Want to talk about more?

Well, unplug the smoke monster’s drain (eeew, by the way) and get ready to be judged…

‘Lost’ finale code name revealed!

April
7

We Lost-philes know that every season finale has a bombshell moment that’s given a not-so-secret code name.

Season 1 gave us “The Bagel” (Walt’s abduction by the Others) and last year’s finale offered “The Frozen Donkey Wheel” (when Ben moves the island).

This time around, producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse asked fans to submit their suggestions, from which they’d pick the most appropriate nickname.

So this week, on their regular ABC.com podcast, they announced that this season’s finale catchphase is…

“The Fork in the Outlet.”

But, of course, the big question is: What the heck does it mean?

‘Lost’ recap: We obsess over ‘Whatever Happened, Happened’

April
2

Bravo, Evangeline Lilly!

Lots of Lost-philes groan when they hear the words “Kate-centric” episode. (Think Season One’s obsession with that dopey toy airplane Kate got from her childhood sweetheart.)

But this Freckles installment obliterated any of those concerns: Hats off to the writers and Ms. Lilly!

I mean, I defy you to tell me you didn’t get just a wee bit weepy at Kate’s farewell line to Aaron.

“Bye-bye, baby.” Sob!!!

Last night, Sawyer was the one who said that he did a lot of growing up in the last three years – but the sentiment could surely apply to Miss Austen, too. Before, Kate was known for running away from her problems; now, she’s racing to try and solve them.

So what changed her? Motherhood. Even if Aaron isn’t her son, raising him has given her a fierce protective quality. She’ll defy anyone – even Sawyer – to do what she thinks is right. Especially when it comes to a child.

Even if that means saving the life of a kid who grows up to be Benjamin Linus, a man who’ll ruin the lives of many dwelling both on island and off.

So hop in my DeLorean, “Lost fans,” and check to see if you’re disappearing! We’re about to dive into the details…

‘Lost’ spoiler: Mystery man cast for season finale!

April
1

Of course we’re all excited about tonight’s Kate-centric – and hopefully time-travel explaining – episode, “Whatever Happened, Happened.”

But let’s look ahead to the next month’s season finale next month (and after tonight, there’s only four episodes left until the two-hour conclusion, sob!) with some super-spoilerific news, shall we?

Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello reports that “Dexter” guest star Mark Pellegrino has been cast as a mystery character for the finale.

There’s lots of rumors going around about who Pellegrino plays, the biggest gossip being the one that Ausiello lists as “unconfirmed scuttlebutt.”

So if you don’t want to know, don’t click on the link above.

And don’t click though this post, which will reveal more rumors about which island castaways Pellegrino’s character has seen before…

‘Lost recap: We obsess over ‘He’s Our You’

March
26

Sorry, young Ben Linus. A chicken salad sandwich and a book ain’t gonna save you from the deadly Sayid Jarrah.

Neither is the fact that your childhood was made miserable by an abusive dad.

Or the fact that you’re – you know – only 12 years old.

Because our assassin friend remembers all too well the horrors that you’ll inflict on others in the future.

Sayid’s flash to the past gave him a chance to take you out.

And he grabbed it.

BADA-BANG!

So if you could go back in time, would you kill Hitler? (And in this scenario, Hitler is Ben.)

That’s the question a Dharma construction worker posed to Dr. Pierre Chang in this season’s premiere. Chang tells him that’s absurd: There are clear rules involved with time travel.

Which is what Daniel Faraday’s been saying all along to the Left Behinds, too. No matter what we do, we can’t change the future.

Except Sayid doesn’t know about these time travel regulations. And I suspect that even if he did, he’d still have blown young Ben away – just in case Daniel and Chang are wrong.

So are they wrong? Is Benjamin Linus dead?

Of course not.

‘Lost’ spoilers on tonight’s episode, ‘He’s our You’

March
25

Don’t let the photo below fool you, Lost-philes.

From what I’ve seen of tonight’s Sayid-centric episode, it’s not all happy-happy-joy-joy for Jim LeFleur and our favorite Iraqi faux Hostile.

In fact, it gets doggone violent between them.

What else can I tell you?

We’ll see flashes of a young Sayid, not to mention another appearance by a young Benjamin Linus – and it looks like Ben’s been working on those lying and cheating skills since childhood. (Are you really surprised?)

Kate and Juliet may be working together in the motor pool. Will they be comparing notes on Sawyer as they tune up some carburetors? We’ll see.

And speaking of car troubles, let me just say these three words:

Flaming.

Dharma.

Van.

Click through to check out more photos, and see if you can predict what will happen. And don’t forget to tune in here tomorrow for our weekly recap and discussion of tonight’s installment!

‘Lost’ scoop! Charlotte’s age confirmed – and is a wedding in the works?

March
24

Remember when the Left Behinds first hit 1974 and stumbled into the Dharma camp?

Daniel spotted a very young, red-haired Charlotte Lewis, the childhood version of the woman who’d just died in 2004.

Forget about Daniel’s tears, true Lost-philes said. How could Charlotte be around in 1974, when she wasn’t born until 1979?

(Charlotte’s birthday was revealed in Season 4, courtesy of Ben’s dossier on the Freighter Folk.)

This got fans all wired with questions:

Was Ben lying about Charlotte’s birth date?

Was his information wrong?

Was some other kind of time-trippy problem going on?

As it turns out, the answers are: None of the above. And why? Because the show simply screwed up its timeline.

But the discrepancy apparently caused a bit of a kerfuffle between actress Rebecca Mader (who plays Charlotte) and the show’s producers…

‘Lost’ recap: We obsess over ‘LaFleur’

March
5

Jeez, it’s bad enough we’ve got to keep track of what year our Losties are in, but now we’ve got ANOTHER name to add to the long list of aliases used on this show?

Yup, Sawyer, also known as James Ford, is now also known as Jim LaFleur to the Dharma Initiative.

And playing Jim has probably led to the most stability Sawyer’s ever had in his life: He’s got a steady job and a sweet home life. He’s even comes home for dinner with daisies for his girl!

Too bad it’s, you know, 1977 and he’s living 27 years in the past with a freaky cult that’s doomed to die. Plus, there’s that little problem of an ex-girlfriend from the future showing up suddenly.

Can you believe it? Sawyer and Juliet sitting in New Otherton, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!!! Then Kate shows up again, along with Jack: Could this love quadrangle get more complicated? Does this mean Sawyer’s happiness with Juliet over?

Oh, and did I mention that we saw the FOUR-TOED STATUE again?!?

Ouch.

Maybe that final time-flash cured those headaches for Sawyer, Juliet, Miles, Jin and Daniel, but damn, I need some Tylenol.

So put on your Geronimo Jackson t-shirt everyone, and let’s start our question-filled dissection of “Lost,” 1970s-style!

So WHEN exactly are our Losties?

Good question, though the last few episodes lead fans to believe that the castaways – both the Left Behinds and the Gone-Back-to-the-Island crew – are now stuck in the 1970s.

Which just happens to be when a little organization called the Dharma Inititative was setting up camp.

So have any of our beloved island dwellers infiltrated Dharma? Watch the following slideshow of stills from tonight’s show – and form your own pre-“LaFluer” conclusions.

And I’ll leave you with this question to ponder: Who – or what- is LaFleur?

‘Lost’ recap: We obsess over ‘The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham’

February
26

From the moment the time-travel superhighway spit John Locke out at Exit Tunisia, the Island Savior was on one wild world tour last night.

Not only did he visit all of his pals from 815, including WAAAALLLT!, but Locke got some face time with a few other important figures, too.

Like Charles Widmore, who, as it turns out, is the one who christened Locke with the Jeremy Bentham alias. (Seems like Widmore and Locke’s parents share the same random dead philosopher sense of humor.)

He’s also the one who casually warns Locke of an imminent war on the island, one that’s presumably going to pit Widmore against Ben.

And speaking of that wily Mr. Linus, he’s one step ahead of Widmore when he steps in to do what Locke ultimately couldn’t. If Locke wasn’t going in that coffin by his own hand, well, Ben was happy to do the job himself.

But … (and isn’t there always a ‘but’ on “Lost?”) does that mean that Ben is the “bad guy” in the war scenario?

Sure, we loathe Ben’s actions – and it’s rather disturbing that he doesn’t care who he plows down while executing his grand plan – but it could be for some greater, more noble purpose.

Means to an end, right? Even if the means are horrible, are they justified if the end is something good for mankind, like saving the world?

I’ve no idea if this is the case, of course, but I can’t help but wonder if Ben turns out to be quite as evil as we think.

That said, let’s jump into “The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham,” which began and ended with Locke’s ultimate island resurrection.

‘Lost’ sneak peek! Check out clips from ‘The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham’

February
25

John Locke’s turned the donkey wheel – so now what?

Well, tonight we find out how John turns into Jeremy Bentham – and exactly how and why he ends up in that coffin.

If you don’t want to see a single spoiler of “The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham,” then stop reading now.

And definitely don’t watch the video clips below.

Because Locke not only winds up in what looks an awful lot like the same Tunisian desert where Ben landed  (the island has quite the speedy transportation system!), but he’ll meet up with Charles Widmore and Matthew Abaddon.

Not to mention…WAAAAALLLLLTTT!

Yes, Malcolm David Kelley guest stars tonight, though we don’t have his scene here.

But keep clicking to view more of Locke, Widmore and Abbadon, oh my!

‘Lost’ recap: We obsess over ‘316’

February
19

Last week I gave “Lost” a big compliment: I said I loved how the show occasionally allows the characters to voice the same frustration and confusion that we, the audience, often feel while watching this cuckoo-crazy series.

For instance, a couple of episodes back, Sawyer smacked Daniel around until he explained the island’s time jumps. When the off-island gang gathered at the marina last week and argued about returning to the island, Kate did what any reasonable person would do: She said, “You people are crazy” and drove the heck home.

But I must have done something to jinx all that, because last night’s episode, “316,” had all of the Losties practically mute, but simmering with unasked questions. I know they’ve seen some seriously bad juju since 815 went down, but come on, what’s going on now is not remotely normal – even by their messed-up standards.

Wouldn’t SOMEONE have said, “Huh?” when Eloise Hawking was sketching out this insane return-to-the-island plan?

And didn’t you want to shake your television when Desmond walked out of the Lamp Post station without asking Mrs. Hawking, “OK, exactly WHY isn’t the island through with me, you crazy old bat?”

Then at some point on that ridiculously long Ajira Airways flight, you’d think Jack would have asked an injured Ben, “So, dude, what the hell happened to you?”

But here’s the biggest question I had: Why, oh why, was Sayid wearing a purple tank top that showed way, way too much man cleavage? Was the cop escorting him (shades of Kate and the original 815 marshal, by the way, but more on that later) from the Fashion Police? Now THAT would be a credible explanation.

Anyway, fasten your seatbelts and prepare for a landing, because this flight into “316” is now taking off! Click through to read the way-too-detailed breakdown…

We’ll learn lots more about Ben on ‘Lost’

February
18

I’m all set for tonight’s episode of “Lost,” which picks up right where we left off – with Ben and Mrs. Hawking launching the plan to bring back (at least some of) the Oceanic 6 back to the island.

I’m also psyched about a recent interview with Michael Emerson: TV Guide got Mr. Benjamin Linus to spill a few details about what upcoming episodes will reveal about Mystery Island’s prince of darkness.

Emerson says we’ll definitely learn more about Ben’s back story, which may help us decide whether he’s good or bad. (Throughout the series, Ben’s been saying he’s “one of the good guys,” but we all know that Ben lies. A lot.)

Click here to read the whole interview, but let’s focus on what Emerson had to say about Ben’s childhood girlfriend, Annie:

<blockquote><div>TVGuide.com: So you think Annie will pop back into the picture?
Emerson: Yeah, I think so. In fact, I may go so far as to say we may already know Annie. Have you considered that? I’m not speaking from knowledge of a script because that’s not a thing that has been written, but stranger things have happened on the show. Everyone is more connected then they ever thought, and it’s often by blood.</div></blockquote>

Verrrrry interesting, wouldn’t you say?

So if Annie is someone we know, could it be Charlotte?

‘Lost’ recap: We obsess over ‘This Place is Death’

February
12

Man, Charlotte’s brain might have been mush from all that time-tripping, but she was on the money with one thing last night.

This place – the island, that is – abso-freakin-lutely means death.

Mystery Island’s body count was off the charts in this episode: No less than a half-dozen people got sent to the boneyard.

Not to mention, everyone’s favorite Ghost Dad, Christian Shephard, made a special appearance.

And those who survived? Well, death still loomed large for them, too.

Locke made the final commitment to sacrifice his life for the island.

Jin insisted that Locke take his wedding ring, so he could convince Sun that he died on the freighter.

Danielle and her unborn baby represented life, until you remembered that both of them would be murdered years later by Widmore’s henchmen.

The death obsession even extended off-island – its powers extend far and wide, after all – snaring Sun and Jack (both of whom threatened to kill Ben) in its clutches.

Throw in the Smoke Monster, a few revelatory doozies (Charlotte and Daniel knew each other on the island before!?!) and time flash after flash after flash, and we had one hell of a whiplash-inducing hour.

So come on! Dive into Smokey’s Hieroglyphic Hell Pit with me and let’s dish on the details…

‘Lost’ recap! We obsess over ‘The Little Prince’

February
5

Last night’s “Lost” wasn’t quite as compelling as last week’s “Jughead,” but it’s kind of hard to compete with any episode that highlights Penny and Desmond.

Still, despite the fact that “The Little Prince” was a bit of a set-up episode, it was an amazing one: It brilliantly criss-crossed between seasons and beyond, seemlessly fitting together snippets of the series mythology while adding new details. (Who says the producers of this show didn’t have a plan way back when?)

We got to revisit the original Hatch, Claire giving birth to Aaron, and the Numbers (Sayid was unconscious for 42 hours; Kate’s address was 42 Panoroma Crest, slip 23 at the Long Beach marina, etc.). The late Boone, Shannon, Charlie and Michael were all mentioned. And our old (um, well, young) French friend Danielle Rousseau showed up.

I could practically hear the snap-snap-snap as the puzzle pieces started fitting together, didn’t you?

Then, of course, there was the now-obligatory OMG moment. Last week, it was when we found out Charles Widmore used to be an Other.

This week – HELLO, SPOILER ALERT, YOU SHOULDN’T BE READING THIS IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED, YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT BY NOW!!! — we discovered that JIN is ALIVE!

He’s being attended to by Danielle’s shipwrecked science squad – back in 1988. (Don’t feel bad, Jin, we’re confused, too, and we speak English.)

So let’s dive in, shall we, starting with the first question that was – miraculously, for this show  – answered last night.

Who knew the truth about Aaron’s parentage?

And was anyone (besides Jack) shocked to learn that it was that sneaky Benjamin Linus?

‘Lost’ recap: We obsess over ‘Jughead’

January
29

When I first heard the title of last night’s episode, like every other Lost-phile, I started wondering who Jughead could be.

Turns out, Jughead isn’t a person. It’s a thing.

And what a random thing, too: Jughead is the nickname for a hydrogen bomb, which arrived on the island more than 50 years ago (at the same time the U.S. was involved in a program of developing and testing atom bombs in the Pacific Ocean) and entrusted to the care of Richard Alpert and the Others.

So what’s the trouble with that? Well, in 1954, that bomb started leaking, making a whole bunch o’ Others sick with radiation poisoning.

Wha, wha, WHAT?!?

Honestly, just when you thought “Lost” couldn’t get any more mind-boggling – time travel, quantum physics – the show literally throws a bomb into the mix and scrambles your brain even more.

Thankfully, there was another storyline to temper all that science talk: We got to see more of Penny and Desmond.

And the best part? We got to meet the new addition to the Hume family – and presumed heir to the Widmore fortune.

(Harumph. I didn’t get a birth announcement, did you?)

So, anyone else wondering about the name Pen and Des gave their son?

Sure, I figure it’s a tribute to the late, great hero, Charlie Pace, who gave his life to help the castaways in Season 3.

Then again, it IS short for Charles – also the name of Penny’s father. Who just happens to show up not once, but twice, and at dual times and places, in this episode.

Coincidence? With this show? Come on.

Want to discuss further? Keep reading for further analysis…

‘Lost’ season premiere recap!!! We obsess over ‘Because You Left’ and ‘The Lie’…

January
22

Last night’s season premiere of “Lost” was really a wake-up call, wasn’t it?

I mean, literally.

The show started with an alarm clock going off – exactly at 8:15, of course – and a record skipping: All of which connected brilliantly to what happened, is happening and will happen to our favorite band of crash survivors.

That’s right, we got the official explanation for what the heck’s going on with the island: Time-travel.

That doesn’t explain the smoke monster, Jacob, the island’s healing power and lots of other things, but the fact that the show addressed the time issue so clearly (well, as clearly as “Lost” gets anyway) means that we’re moving at lightning speed towards the series’ finale next year.

Sob. Sniff. The puzzle pieces are all definitely starting to fit together now, which makes me happy to have more answers but sad to see that the end is so near.

But on a positive note, judging from these back-to-back episodes, it seems like we’re going to have a hell of a ride towards the finish line.

So let’s kick off our weekly discussion by deciphering “Because You Left” and “The Lie,” shall we?

By the way, Libby says hi…
