While Lost doesn’t have quite as much impact (or viewers) as it did during it’s first few seasons, I’m still a loyal follower of the show and can’t wait for the season premiere when the show returns again with new episodes, currently slated for early in 2009. What should we expect from the Oceanic six?
Apparently, they’re all going to have to head back to the island and find out exactly what happened to the rest of the survivors. You can view the latest trailer for season 5 over at ABC’s Lost portal ( link here). If you’ve been following the show for any length of time, you probably know that reuniting Kate (and her baby, Aaron), Jack, Sayid, Hurley, and Sun is going to be no easy task in itself, but they’re going to have to put aside their differences “once and for all.” Why? You may ask? Good question, but it all lies within what Ben said about returning to the island, and why they all have to do it together: “I think [that dictate is] a scientific condition of the mechanism by which the Island operates. I don’t think it’s an esoteric or spiritual issue, I think it’s science.” If I had to guess, I’d say that that was rather heavy foreshadowing. So what we can gather from the trailer is that they’ll all have to put aside their differences, work together, and get back to the island to find out what happened to the rest of the survivors. The real question of course, is how they’ll be able to do that.
Even getting back to the island will be an adventure, as the Oceanic Six will have to fan out to a group of Dharma stations. Further still, the stations are not located on the island but rather in other locations. The off-island stations will hold the key to getting back for all of them. In the last finale, the island “moved” to another place..went to another time…whatever, it went somewhere, and they’re going to work together to find a way back.
Of course that still leaves us wondering how it’s all going to tie together, and where exactly in the world are the stations located? Why are they going to have to do it as one? This means the audience will likely see a variety of global locales and much more varied scenery than the island itself. All in all, I’m really excited, and 2009 can’t come fast enough, if you ask me!
