Lost Friday - Christmas Edition.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Another Lost Friday is upon us. We actually have much to discuss.

First off, a bit of business. Due to the holidays, there will be no Lost Friday on December 30. It will, however, return on January 6 to get us all caught up for Episode 10 on January 11. Hoo-rah.

Speaking of upcoming episodes, here's a lengthy rundown of the next 4 new episodes, along with what you can expect to see in them. Sources have been gathered all over the interweb, and the validity is always questioned.

January 11 - 8pm EST - Episode 9.5: Lost: Revelation.

Discover the complete story of the grueling first 48 days on the island for the fuselage survivors and tailies after the crash of Oceanic flight 815.

Since the beginning, "Lost" has mystified and intrigued viewers with its interesting characters and unique style of storytelling. Season One dealt with the fuselage survivors, the hatch and a failed attempt to get off the island. Season Two continues these stories and also introduces viewers to the survivors of the tail section. "Lost: Revelation" puts these two seasons together in a linear fashion that provides an illuminating view on one compelling story.

See the sequence of the aftermath of the failed raft attempt, the opening of the hatch, how the tail section and fuselage survivors lived separately and the unwitting intersections of their lives, and how both groups ultimately collided in one catastrophic moment. "Lost: Revelation" offers new and avid viewers a fresh perspective, comprehensive and enlightening, in one of television's most intriguing series.

(This obviously is going to be a recap before the premiere of episode 10. After taking 5 weeks off, giving us an extra hour of repackaged footage is the least they can do.)

January 11 - 9pm EST - Episode 10: The 23rd Psalm.

Master Sgt. Crystal L. Anderson was an extra in a filming of LOST in Hawaii. She played a member of a church congregation. The scene was designed to depict the mental flashback of a character in the show named Mr. Eko, played by veteran actor Adewale Akinnuowy-Agbaje. Per an interview with a local army newspaper, she says Mr. Eko is "king of the warlords" in Nigeria. He enters the church with other warlords and asks his brother, a minister in the church, to ordain him as a minister. Everyone is frightened, knowing Mr. Eko's reputation, and the church is cleared, so only two warlords, Mr. Eko and his brother, are left.

Mr. Eko interrogates Charlie about the Virgin Mary statue, Claire begins to lose faith in Charlie when she discovers his secret, and Jack is an interested observer when Kate gives the recovering Sawyer a much-needed haircut.

Mr. Eko's upcoming flashback episode, titled "The 23rd Psalm," will shed more light on why the character took a 40-day vow of silence on the island. And producers promise more info on that stick. "It has its own flashback," [Damon] Lindelof quips.

(Woah. If what the extra says is true, that would shed a whole lot of light on Eko's past. His relation with the drug plane, along with his checkered past sounds like a fantastic flashback. And that hair cut only sweetens the deal. The idea that Eko was on the island before the crash is starting to solidify.)

January 18 - 9pm EST - Episode 11: The Hunting Party

Jack, Locke and Sawyer pursue a determined Michael after he heads into the jungle toward the dreaded "Others" in search of Walt. Meanwhile, Sun has a surprising reaction to Jin's desire to join the search party, and Hurley and Charlie commiserate over the age-old conundrum of "what women want."

Jack-centric. Julie Bowen will guest star.

This episode features two guest stars, a wealthy middle aged Italian man and a gorgeous Italian woman who may possibly recur.

(This should be the big Jack-episode we've been waiting for. We might find out how the divorce and tattoos came to be. Also, it's nice to see a good old-fashioned walkabout again.)

January ?? - 9pm EST - Episode 12: Fire & Water.

Flashbacks will feature 8-year-old Charlie and 12-year-old Liam.

Charlie-centric episode that will feature his parents as well as his brother. We learn that Mr. Pace is a butcher. The episode will also feature Karen, the wife of a rock star (Liam?) and a British director.

(This may be the episode directed by Darren Aronofsky, but that hasn't been confirmed yet.)

Apart from all those previews, I've collected a bunch of various Season 2 spoilers that you might be interested in. These have to do with upcoming episodes, or Season 2 in general. Enjoy.

1. Quotes from Lindelof and Grillo-Marxuach at a Lost convention: The plane did not crash by accident, it crashed for a very specific reason. But he dismissed speculation that someone aboard the plane caused the crash. The crash of the plane is explained before the season ends.

2. From Damon Lindelof: [Hurley getting a love interest is] definitely something we've thought a lot about and nothing that we wanna force. There are a couple women characters we're introducing on the island over the course of the season who we do not know who they're going to end up with. We're doing 23 [episodes] this year. There is going to be a flashback story that fully explains the significance of all [Jack's] tattoos and puts it into the framework of what was happening in his life when he got them. You'll probably be seeing it in season two, but if not, very early in season three. Right now the plan is to do it this year. [23] is an important number in terms of the scheme of the show.

3. Lindelof reveals: [Season 2 will cover] roughly the next 45 or 50 days. We’re sticking to the same brand of storytelling and not taking bold jumps forward. Probably by the end of season two we’ll be in the range of day 90. The issue of what made Flight 815 crash is going to be dealt with in season two and definitively answered by the end of season two.

4. Damon Lindelof said: "Check out Marvin Candle's left hand."
(Dr. Marvin Candle has a fake hand.)

5. We'll be seeing Locke soon in another flashback, this time in his wheelchair.

6. You'll learn more about [why Ethan abducted Claire] this season.

7. As with the hatch, there will be more revelations about the Dharma Initiative, but it's all going to come at times when it's going to affect the characters most. You have not seen the last of Dharma, but it's going to be a little while before you find out a little bit more. The Dharma Initiative was a communal research facility on the island. A lot of scientists and free-thinkers got together to do a lot of different kinds of research: psychiatry, zoology - and remember that with the zoology of the film you saw some polar bears. It's possible there were some animal aggression studies going on there, as well as human psychology experiments and a whole variety of other things. The Dharma Initiative was founded by two peacenik Grad students who were trying to get to the bottom of a lot of mysteries about human behavior. There are six bunkers on the island, and they were devoted to a lot of different kinds of research. That's going to open up a lot of different avenues for us to tease you with what the kind of research was, and how it's evolved now that the Dharma Initiative seems to have fallen into disrepair. A lot has happened on the island and the Dharma Initiative is just the tip of the iceberg.

Well, that oughta do it for now. This is my last post before Christmas, so I want to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday. The CDP will return next week with the last 2 posts of the year.

NEXT: THE CDP YEAR IN REVIEW!

Comments:
Entertainment Weekly named the cast of lost as it's entertainer of the year.
 
I saw that. EW has been very supportive of Lost, which is really cool, considering they were also supportive of Arrested Development.

Meanwhile, Lost rakes in 23 million people a week, and Arrested is going off the air in 2006.
 
Wow, that sounds like it's gonna rock! (assuming those spoilers are true, of course!)

If that's supposed to be the gorgeous Italian woman, she is far from gorgeous...
 
Merry Christmas B-tizzle WA. E-mail me your address and I'll send you one of the cool cards I made.
Love,
