Spoilers, 12 May 2006
Ryan from The Transmission posted a great spoiler earlier this week: several photographs of an upcoming LOST set. In the sneak peek for next week's episode, "Three Minutes," we saw a tiny, brief glimpse of what's to come, but Ryan's pictures of the set get up close and personal.
Walt, "Mr. Friendly" (AKA "Zeke"), and Alex (Danielle Rousseau's daughter) will all allegedly appear in next week's episode. Also slated is a new character named Ms. Klugh, who will be in the season finale as well. There will be Michael flashbacks in "Three Minutes." The official synopsis is "A determined Michael convinces Jack and several castaways to help him rescue Walt from 'The Others.' Meanwhile, Charlie struggles with Eko's decision to discontinue building the church."
The season finale will be a special two-hour episode, and it is titled "Live Together, Die Alone". (The title is in reference to something Jack said in "White Rabbit" to the effect that if the survivors couldn't live together they would die alone. In "Man of Science, Man of Faith," Kate paraphrased Jack: "Live together/die alone, right?") In the season finale, Clancy Brown—the same actor who played Joe Inman (the American who persuaded Sayid to become a torturer in the Gulf War)—will allegedly play the role of Kelvin Inman (whose first name was mentioned by Desmond at the beginning of season two). Desmond said that Kelvin was dead, but apparently he isn't. The really strange thing is that Kelvin is apparently either someone Sayid knew before the island, or perhaps a twin of that person.
Other notable characters in the season finale will reportedly be Walt, Desmond (with multiple flashbacks), "Mr. Friendly," the fake Henry Gale, Kelvin Inman, Alex, and new characters Ms. Klugh and Charles Widmore. The official synopsis for the two-hour season finale is "After discovering something odd just offshore, Jack and Sayid come up with a plan to confront 'The Others' and hopefully get Walt back. Meanwhile, Eko and Locke come to blows as Locke makes a potentially cataclysmic decision regarding the 'button' and the hatch."
