The premiere of Lost tonight, in its 6th and final season, includes three hours of entertainment beginning at 8 PM EST. Hour 1 will effectively be a recap, the kind that we have grown accustomed to over the years, to refresh our memories on the peril in which our favorite characters will find themselves in at the beginning of Episode 1, which starts at 9 PM. Due to the WGA strike from two years ago, we’ll get two additional hours this season, in the form of a two hour premiere and what I presume will be a two hour finale. So, given we’ll get two full hours of new material tonight and Lost’s tendency to start of each season with a “bang”, tonight should prove to be fantastic even if the official show description does not give us much insight:
Episode 1 Official Show Description: LA X – Parts 1 & 2
“The aftermath from Juliet’s detonation of the hydrogen bomb is revealed.”
So, circling back from the finale last year, we know that Juliet detonated Jughead (the H bomb) and that as a result of that event something cataclysmic will happen. Further, “evil” Locke has emerged as an even more formidable force after seemingly murdering Jacob. Clearly, there are a lot of different places the show could take us tonight, but if the title has any meaning, it is quite obvious that at least a portion of tonight’s premiere will take place on, or surrounding, Flight 815.
Did the detonation of the Jughead change the past? Given what we know from the show that is unlikely, but not impossible. More likely is that the detonation of the bomb pushes our characters back into their most appropriate timeline where things should get interesting given Locke’s current state of being.
Tons of spoilers are already circulating – the entire first hour of the premiere was leaked to YouTube yesterday. You can view some episode previews below, but please keep the spoiler discussion to a minimum. Enjoy!
