Recent Emmy winner Michael Emerson - just one of the Losties who talked to us recently about the show's sixth and final season - promises it will resolve some but not all of fans' questions.
"I don't know if they'll be fully satisfied or not." Emerson says. "I don't know if we want to be fully satisfied. I think it's always best to go away wanting a little more."
You can forgive Emerson for being as enigmatic as his character Ben Linus. But in interviews with TV.Guide.com, his cast mates (including Jorge Garcia, Daniel Dae Kim, and Terry O'Quinn) did clarify three things that have nagged us since the fifth season finale in May:
- Yes, the bomb exploded. "Basically a bomb went off at the end of the last one and all bets are off," Garcia said. Adds Kim: "At the end of last season there was a big explosion." Of course, neither of them guaranteed that the bomb was Jughead, but we'll just assume it was to keep our heads from spinning.
- We haven't seen the last of Juliet. A well placed source tells us the Elizabeth Mitchell, who plays Juliet, just flew back from shooting in Hawaii and that she may return there to shoot again.
- We probably have seen the last of Libby. "It looks like we're probably not going to see Libby," Garcia says. "They'll probably deal with the story, but actress Cynthia Watros (who plays Libby) may not be joining us.
What Lost mysteries do you most want to see resolved when Season begins in 2010?
Are people really this into Libby? No offense Natalia Abrams because you did put together a well written piece but you're interviewing these guys and one of the three issues you discuss is if we'll see Libby again and it turns out the result is a resounding, "probably not."
I suppose the truth of the matter is that almost everything having to do with the 6th season of Lost is being kept secret so getting anything out of vault, even something as innocuous as "Libby probably won't be back" should be considered progress.
Also, good to hear Elizabeth Mitchell is still shooting new content despite the launch of ABC's Flash Forward.
