Unlike most of the other dead characters who have stopped by for Lost's final season, Harold Perrineau's Michael makes a return to the island, in part to unlock a mystery.
Getting Lost: Has Desmond been claimed?
"I think they brought everybody back so they can answer all these questions," Perrineau tells TVGuide.com of his appearance Tuesday night (9/8c, ABC). "I got to go back and answer one of the bigger questions - not necessarily about Michael, but one of the bigger questions about the island."
Michael, who Perrineau assures us is most definitely dead, is also on a mission to help Hurley (Jorge Garcia), the island's resident ghost whisperer. "Hurley's in a position that he's not comfortable being in now the he's sort of a leader," Perrineau says. "There are a bunch of things going on, and Hurley has to step up a little bit. So Michael's helping him do that."
Also appearing to Hurley is his unrequited love, Libby (Cynthia Watros), who Michael shot and killed in Season 2. Perrineau says everything Michael did after that - including his self-sacrifice on the freighter in Season 4 - has been in search of redemption.
