1. Jack and Ben are right where we left them last Spring, in the funeral parlour with Locke, and this season’s action will start there.

3. Remember The Arrow Station, where the tail section survivors hid from the Others back in year 3? We will revisit it and be informed of its very interesting purpose pretty early on in the premiere.

4. At least three people will be killed in the first act.

Episode 5.01 And 5.02 – Press Release

We’ve already posted an early draft of the press releases here and here but here is the official version as can be found on the ABC Media site.

THE REMAINING SURVIVORS START TO FEEL THE EFFECTS CAUSED BY THE ISLAND BEING MOVED, AND JACK AND BEN BEGIN THEIR QUEST TO REUNITE THE OCEANIC 6 – ALONG WITH LOCKE’S BODY – IN ORDER TO RETURN TO THE ISLAND, ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF ABC’S “LOST”

Michelle Rodriguez Guest Stars as Ana Lucia

Awarded the 2005 Emmy and 2006 Golden Globe for Best Drama Series, “Lost” returns for its fifth season of action-packed mystery and adventure — that will continue to bring out the very best and the very worst in the people who are lost, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 21 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Please note: This aktivitas will repeat Saturday, Jan. 24, from 9:00-11:00 p.m., ET.

After Oceanic Air flight 815 tore apart in mid-air and crashed on a Pacific island, its survivors were forced to find inner strength they never knew they had in order to survive. But they discovered that the island holds many secrets, including a mysterious smoke monster, polar bears, housing and hatches with electricity and hot & cold running water, a group of island residents known as “The Others,” and a mysterious man named Jacob. The survivors have also found signs of those who came to the island before them, including a 19th century sailing ship called The Black Rock, a downed Beechcraft plane from a failed drug run, the remains of an ancient statue, as well as bunkers belonging to the Dharma Initiative — a group of scientific researchers who inhabited the island in the recent past. They also encountered a freighter stationed off the island that some thought would lead to their rescue, but ultimately almost caused their extinction.

With only 34 original hours left until the tamat episode airs in 2010, Jack, Kate, Hurley, Sayid, Sun and Claire’s son, Aaron – otherwise known as the Oceanic 6 – have been rescued and continue to try and pick up the pieces of the lives they knew before the crash and to perpetuate the lie concocted to hide the truth of what really happened. But Jack and Ben must convince all of them to return to the island in order to save those left behind. This will prove quite a feat since Jack is still wrestling with his addictions, Kate won’t speak to him, Hurley is in a mental institution, Sayid is an assassin and Sun blames Jack for Jin’s death when the freighter exploded. Adding to their worries is the fact that they also have to take the body of Jeremy Bentham – aka Locke — with them in order to make things right with the island. But locating the island may prove even more difficult since Ben moved it. It’s not just a question of where it went, but when. Back on the island, the survivors who were left behind begin to play out the surprising events that inevitably lead to Locke’s death.

In the first part of the season premiere, entitled “Because You Left,” the remaining island survivors start to feel the effects of the aftermath of moving the island, and Jack and Ben begin their quest to reunite the Oceanic 6 in order to return to the island with Locke’s body in an attempt to save their former fellow castaways. In the second part, entitled “The Lie,” Hurley and Sayid are on the run from the cops after stumbling into trouble at the safehouse; the island survivors come under attack by unknown forces; and an old friend offers some shocking advice to Kate in order to ensure that “the lie” remain a secret.

“Lost” stars Naveen Andrews as Sayid, Henry Ian Cusick as Desmond, Jeremy Davies as Daniel Faraday, Michael Emerson as Ben, Matthew Fox as Jack, Jorge Garcia as Hurley, Josh Holloway as Sawyer, Yunjin Kim as Sun, Ken Leung as Miles, Evangeline Lilly as Kate, Elizabeth Mitchell as Juliet and Terry O’Quinn as Locke.

Ny Post Review

Thanks to Lisa for the heads up.

THE big secret of “Lost” is finally out.

After four years, the mystery of “Lost” is revealed in the first few minutes of this Bandar Ceme season’s much-anticipated fifth season debut, Jan. 19.

If you think you already know too much about what’s in store, stop reading now.

At bottom, “Lost” is about time travel. That is what rescued the show last season from two seasons of go-nowhere stories.

The stories began to flash forward – and the focus moved past the romantic triangle of Jack, Sawyer and Kate.

The upcoming revelation will lay to rest years of Internet wrangling and instantly settle about a million fevered questions between dedicated fans about what the heck has been going on this whole time.

Without revealing details, the remote island so integral to the lives of the castaways is home to what a very important scientist on the show calls “virtually unlimited power.” And the “power” has been harnessed, quite haphazardly, for time travel.

“You have no idea how difficult it would be for me to explain this phenomenon to a quantum physicist,” well-meaning super-scientist Daniel tells Sawyer, the island’s loveable marooned scoundrel who has remained unhappily confused and shirtless since last season.

Time travel this season appears to have replaced flashbacks and flash-forwards.

Instead, while watching memories of the past or events in the future, chunks of the entire cast are sent skipping through time, like a needle on a vinyl record.

Of course, since this is “Lost,” even with the big reveal out in the open, there are only a million other questions left unanswered. (After all, the show still has two years before its agreed-upon finale.)

For now, the story seems to have turned on itself. For at least part of the new season, the folks on the island don’t know where or – more specifically, when – they are.

The action jumps between the handful of people who escaped the island last season, only to find themselves much worse off for leaving, and their friends who are still trapped on the time-warping island.

Like the classic 1937 Frank Capra film, “Lost Horizon,” the cast of “Lost” finds itself struggling to get back and set things right.

Hangman 2

Update: 00:00 And we have a winner! My source is VERY impressed and as such may do 1 more before the premiere on the 21st seeing as how good everyone was. He says his next one will probably be 10 times harder!

Update 2: 23:10 The letter S has been revealed (Congrats it revealed the most!) and a new poll posted. This is most likely the last letter revealed tonight.I need my beauty sleep  My source is VERY impressed and as such may do  Hangman 2

Update 2: 21:30 The letter T has been revealed (Congrats it revealed the most!) and a new poll posted.
Update 2: 18:40 The letter C has been revealed (Congrats it revealed the most!) and a new poll posted.
Update 1: 15:40 The letter M has been revealed (Congrats it revealed the most!) and a new poll posted.

After all the great feedback from you about the last hangman, I thought we’d run 1 more before the Premiere on the 21st. This is from another source who thinks he can make this one a bit harder (even I don’t know what the text is). When we get closer I’ll put it behind an “Are You Sure” button.

Here is what he has told me.

1) It’s one long run-on sentence with no punctuation.
2) There are NO “X”‘s or “Q”‘s in the puzzle
3) He will supply me with the letters for the next poll every 4 to 5 hours.
4) He has started us off with the letters P and Y

Small Song Snippet

Thanks to Daniele for the heads up.

Clark’s “Downtown.” Now there’s another one to add to that list: “Shotgun Willie” by Willie Nelson.

Where and when the song is played and who listens to it I won’t say but, as the song goes, “You can’t make a record if you ain’t got nothin’ to say.”

Much like all uses of music, the song is very effective and quite eerie. There is also some very significant symbolism when it’s played that viewers will only fully appreciate on multiple viewings.

Thanks to GregDean for the video and Lyrics

And the lyrics…

Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
Bitin’ a bullet, pullin’ out all of his hair
Shotgun Willie has got all of his family there

You can’t make a record if you ain’t got nothin’ to say
You can’t make a record if you ain’t got nothin’ to say
You can’t play music if you don’t know nothin’ to play

repeat 1st verse

Well, John T. (Fours) was workin’ with the Klu Klux Klan
The six foot five John T was a hell of a man
Made a lot of money sellin’ sheets on the family plan
