2) We will see another crash
3) We will see Ms. Hawking inside the Lamppost Station
4) Sawyers has to lie. The lie hinges on everyone's safety, especially his own
5) Someone we've seen will be shown to be Ethan's Mother.
Here it is:
I know who Faraday’s mother is! Yes, yes, I realize everyone suspects it’s Mrs Hawkings, but I have some indirect proof. Not to mention if I’m right, this sheds some light on the white-haired lady’s back story.
Remember the Constant last season? Desmond goes to Faraday’s lab where he is putting a little rat through a maze. The rat’s name? Eloise. I figure this is the name of Faraday’s mother, you know, because why wouldn’t Faraday name a rat after his mom?This would be just useless guess work were it not for the popups during The Lie last night. One of the popups identified the white-haired lady as Eloise Hawkings. Aha! So if Mrs Hawkings does turn out to be Faraday’s Mom, then I was right that he named the rat after her.
And if so, big deal! So he named his rat after his mother, why would this merit an entire article?
Because, the blond Other that captured the Freighter Trio and led Faraday to Jughead was named Ellie.
As in Elloise?
Is Ellie Faraday’s Mom? Maybe. What if she is? We can gleen several interesting bits of information from this one fact. This would mean that, like Widmore, Ellie somehow ends up banished from the Island and grows old. Like Widmore, she is a former Other. It is also worth mentioning that she witnessed Faraday vanishing after telling her that he was from the future. That could have sparked her evident interest in time travel.
It is also note-worthy that Faraday mentioned that she looked like a woman he knew. Coming after the revelation that Faraday left that girl in a coma, we were clearly meant to assume he was talking about her, but I would submit he was talking about his Mom.
So, what do you think?"
Actress Mary Ann Taheny who played Ticket Agent Jenna in Season One's "Exodus Part Two" was in last nights episode "Jughead" playing Moira, the desk clerk at Oxford University with whom Desmond spoke with trying to get a location on Faraday's office.
Jin's coming back next week. (Or so I'm told.) Yay, Daniel Dae Kim! We've missed you.
Keep reading below for some thoughts on the love quadrangle (pictured above), courtesy of a chat with Lost chiefs Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse...
How would you describe the Kate/Sawyer/Jack love triangle storyline this season? Is it given much prominence or are you pulling away from that a little bit?
Damon Lindelof: What's cool about the show this year is that we're kind of picking up both stories exactly where we left off. On the island there's been this big flash of light, and Sawyer and Juliet are standing there on the beach having just seen the freighter explode. For those guys, Kate just left on the chopper five minutes ago and for Kate and Jack, they were engaged, they broke up, she went on trial, he got addicted to pills, he grew a horrible beard...
That was a bad beard.

Yes, Lost executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse kindly agreed to a round of False; True; Hell No, We Won't Tell You, and they addressed all your burning Q's about season five, including, of course, what's in store for Sawyer
If you've never played this game with us before, the rules are these: We suggest a potential spoiler, and the show runners answer "False," "True" or "Hell no, we won't tell you."
We'll find out what Sawyer told Kate in the first half of the season.
Carlton Cuse: True.There's some kind of romantic tension between Sawyer and Juliet.
Damon Lindelof: True.
Mrs. Hawking is related to someone we already know.
D.L.: Hell no, we won't tell you!
Christian took Claire into the cabin to protect her from the impact of the time-jumping Island.
C.C.: Wow. I think that's a hell no.
D.L.: That's a hell no.
OK. Ben really cannot go back to Island.
D.L.: Um, false.
Someone in the Oceanic Six will die.
D.L.: Hell no, we cannot tell.
OK, Locke can escape death somehow.
D.L.: He looks pretty dead to me.
Will Ben's childhood girlfriend, Annie, be showing up on Lost this season? And any word on Rousseau? — Adam
MATT: I'd give my Dharma-brand nuts to have the castaways time-trip to the Others' very early days and spy on nerdy Ben and his pubescent crush. And who knows, maybe that territory will be plumbed when we get a Ben-centric episode in mid-March? As for "the French woman," I'm holding firm to my belief that we see Danielle in this week's episode. (Team Darlton will dissect my theory in this Thursday's "Getting Lost" video entry.)
Is Sons of Anarchy going to return? — Joanne
TIM: It sure is. FX's biker drama will be back for its second cycle in the fall — no date's been set — and creator Kurt Sutter has teased that the sophomore season will focus on internal struggles. Oh, and also choppers.
Can you please tell me if we will finally see Kyle XY and Jessi get a chance this season? I really love them together. — Nonna
MATT: Does a belly button collect lint?

Question: Your scoop about the lack of Cameron and Chase in the 100th episode of House really killed me. Out of all the episodes, the two of them deserved to be in that one. It's like a slap in the face to Jennifer Morrison, Jesse Spencer and their fans. I don't care what their excuses are. -- Jessica
Ausiello: You know this column is called Ask Ausiello, not Bitch to Ausiello, right? No, seriously, I hear you. I do. But maybe it'll take some of the insult out of the injury if I mention that although the episode number is significant, the episode itself is not. Series creator David Shore said he resisted outside pressure to make the Feb. 2 outing anything other than a typical House. So it's not like he made this really special episode and put everyone in it except Jennifer and Jesse. He made a regular episode and put everyone in it except Jennifer and Jesse. See the difference?
Question: This "Chameron" fix you told us about had better be major -- like major-major. Because after reading about their 100th episode diss, I am pissed! -- Greta
Ausiello: If I oversold it, I have a hunch Jennifer Morrison won't be patting me on the head, either. "I'm with the fans these days," she told us at last week's 100th-ep blowout. "I find out what's happening when you write about it." (Hey, at least she and Jesse Spencer were invited to that.) So, since I have yet to report which game-changing event will trigger the new storyline, she was clueless as to what it might be. So was Spencer, but not for lack of trying. When David Shore refused to divulge the deets, "I said, 'Go on and tell me, David, or I will bash your head in,'" the actor jokes. "He said no, and then we had a bit of a fight and he cried, and I went, 'Okay, fine. Have your little secrets.'"
Question: I heard a character might be leaving House at the end of the season. I'm scared it might be Cuddy. -- Maude
Ausiello: Though exec producer Katie Jacobs played dumb when I asked her about the rumored departure at press tour, Cuddy ain't goin' nowhere. Trust me. That's not to say that there aren't big changes ahead. Hugh Laurie teased, "House undergoes some pretty traumatic stuff in the last half of the season. Not physical but mental. They have lined it up for something fairly cataclysmic, but not, cataclysmic just for the sake of being disastrous, and not just to end the season on a crazy note." So Marcia Cross isn't gonna blow up the hospital? Er, no. "Stuff doesn't blow up," he promises. "I hope we never blow things up, ever. This event is sort of contained within House's head, [but] it is exciting."
Question: We haven't seen much of Wilson lately on House. Do you know if there is anything in store for him? -- Morgan
Ausiello: This certainly has the potential to boost his visibility.
Question: I've loved your relentless search for the truth about the future in-bed togetherness of Bones and Booth. But do you hear anything about the future of my favorite Bones couple, Angela and Hodgins? -- Janie
Ausiello: Good news: An annoying roadblock that answers to the name Roxie has been officially cleared, so says series creator Hart Hanson.
Question: Any Battlestar Galactica spoilers? -- Paul
Ausiello: This Friday's revolt-themed episode is the best of the season so far. Of course, it certainly couldn't be worse than the painfully tedious and self-indulgent art film that we had to sit through last week. What a colossal dud that was. But back to this week's ep, Adama and Roslin finally decide to take their relationship public when they suck face in front of the entire fleet. The PDA is greeted with a mix of "awwwws" and "ewwwws."
Question: It's been reported that both Hayden Panettiere and Ali Larter have asked off Heroes. What's the scoop? -- Aled
Ausiello: I can confirm that one of those actresses has indeed asked to be released from her contract. But I hear NBC is unlikely to allow it.
Question: I'm borderline crazy addicted to Lost, and would very much [twitch] appreciate a scoop on any recent news [twitch]! -- CJ
Ausiello: Listen up, Crazy: In last week's AA, I told you that Team Darlton had been quietly searching for a "younger Phillip Seymour Hoffman-type" for a multi-episode arc this season. Well, in this week's AA, I'm telling you who they got: October Road's Brad Henke. I can't say much about his character, except that he has ties to the mysterious Ilana.
