Question: This strike has me worried about the future of Lost. Since it looks like ABC will go ahead and air the eight completed episodes in early '08, what happens to the other eight? — Conor
Ausiello: It all depends on when the strike ends. If it ends in the next month or so, there's a good chance all 16 episodes will still air this season. If it goes on longer than that, the back eight would most likely be grouped in with next season's 16. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.
Question: How will the strike affect the return of Harold Perrineau (Michael) and Cynthia Watros (Libby)? — Conor
Ausiello: They both made the prestrike cut — but just barely. Sources confirm that (Major spoiler alert) Watros and Perrineau will show up in Episode 8. And I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they're both somehow involved in the mini-cliff-hanger that Team Darlton's been teasing.
Question: I'm absolutely lost without Lost. Can you please pass along any details on Season 4 to tide me over? — Mike B.
Ausiello: Episode 6 is Juliet-centric and features the return of three deceased characters: *o*****, **h*n, and **. *r*e*d**.
