Just a quick note to let everyone know that Lost Season 5 is set to return in January of 2009. To make up for the lost Lost episode, Season 5 will feature 17 episodes (as well season 6).
If anyone caught the interview from Attack of the Show Lindelof and Cuse talked about the possibility of "flash sideways" - that is to say lateral time shifts, not just flash forwards or flash backs. With all of the time travel possibilities, and the understanding that time is a mailable and fordable concept in the Lost universe, the possibilities are really endless when it comes to story lines and possible plot twists.
We will have a good sense of things to come after the next three hours (season finale) are dead and gone. Until then, we can only dream of what is going to be Lost.
