There's no new episode of Lost tonite so I'm going to have to make do with a new episode of The Tyra Banks Crazyass Model Show...it's not the same.
oh, and many Lost fans are wondering whatever happened to Olivia Goodspeed...she didn't appear in last week's episode and since she appeared in the previous Goodspeed episode, "The Man Behind the Curtain" and was identified as Horace Goodspeed's wife in the closed captions, AND Team Darlton, the Lost producers have publicly stated that the Goodspeed's story was an important part of the show and future episodes in podcasts from a year ago, it seemed a little strange there wasn't any sign or mention of the character in LeFleur, last week's episode. Instead, we were introduced to a new character, Amy, who was shown giving birth to Horace's son.
I don't think there is a big mystery here, and I'm assuming that we're going to get some sort of explanation to Olivia's fate in an upcoming episode, but I think it all boils down to the fact that it appears that actress Samantha Mathis who played Olivia in "The Man Behind the Curtain" wasn't availbable to reprise her role. The actress just opened a play on Broadway last week, Moises Kaufman's 33 Variations starring Jane Fonda. Obviously, rehersals for this play would have started at the first of the year making Mathis unavailable for filming in Hawaii. And according to IMDB, she's had some recent film work as well, so she was probably unavailable last fall when Lost began shooting this season. I was always a little surprised that they had cast Mathis in the first place; while not a major star, she does work regularly in films and major tv projects. It seemed ill-advised to cast her in the first place...
Next week's episode: Namaste featuring the return of young Ben, (Sterling Beaumon)for at least 4 episodes.
And, spoiler alert, Lost has been reportedly casting for actors to portray Sawyer and Kate as 10 year olds in the season finale...This is in addition to previous castings for young versions of Sayid, Daniel and maybe Miles.
What's up with all the kids? Is a Lost Babies spin-off in the works?
Oh, and a Lost fansite is claiming that one of those characters is dying this season and they have a poll:
Which one of these will be the person killed in Season 5
It had better not be Juliet!
