Remote Patrol: Lost: Where were we?

Staff Writer

This Tuesday, Feb. 2, at long last, Lost will premiere its sixth and final season. With the brain-boggling sci-fi drama absent for nearly nine months, fans may have forgotten what went down in last spring's explosive finale. So allow us to jog your memory about where everyone was when Juliet detonated Jughead and Ben stabbed Jacob to death.

Season 6 Predictions

Chris DeVille: The detonated nuke will reset the timeline and result in Oceanic 815 landing in L.A., but the people whom Jacob visited and touched will retain their memories of the island. Desmond will play a crucial role.

Brad Keefe: A major, major character will be killed off early- to mid-season, establishing anything is fair game. Benjamin Linus will prove to really be the good guy. And Worthington native Maggie Grace will return and will still be super-cute.

Shelley Mann: The bomb blast creates an alternate history, allowing everyone to come back to life (cast reunion!). The plane never crashes, but everyone ends up back on the island anyway on their own accord. Charlie and Claire end up together forever.

The Gateway Film Center will be offering free big-screen showings of Lost throughout the final season, starting with Tuesday's 8 p.m. season premiere on ABC. Doors open at 7 p.m., click to
