Dan: I’m part of the ABC Studios Advisory Panel, and they were asking questions about Michael’s “fate” on Lost—very vague about whether he died or not, and also how interested I was in seeing him next season. Could this mean that, depending on the results, he might come back?! Also, when Ben says they all need to come back to the Island—is there any way he means Walt, too, and that he’ll be a regular next season? Because, dammit, I miss the kid, and I need to know how he’s special!
I’ve unilaterally decided that Ben’s declaration means Walt has to go back, too, but whether Darlton or the Island agree with me remains to be seen. As for Michael, well, that there isu you have from the advisory panel is what Arsenio used to call a thing that makes you go “Hmmmm…”
Janice in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada: On Lost, Ben says they all have to go back to the Island. Does this include Jin and Sun’s child?
I personally think everybody means everybody, including innocent babies and children whom their mothers and feisty Menang Ceme grandmothers are strongly disinclined to take back to the Dangerous Island of the Four-Toed Statue. On the other hand, maybe the moms can leave their babies with Penny while everyone else returns?
