Lost is about to go somewhere it never has before. Per AintItCoolNews.com, Episode 19 will be 100-percent flashback-free. The hour, says the website's mole, "focuses on one of Season 1's ‘mysteries’ — if that's the right word."
A source at ABC has since whispered to TVGuide.com, "Although the episode doesn't have a traditional flashback, the flashback device is still used." Hmmm....
Very interesting news. I wonder which season 1 mystery this involves. Maybe we are going to see things from the smoke monster's perspective? Or maybe from the Whisperer's point of view?
Or even the island itself maybe. Or better yet...Penny.
And in case you want to know, here are how the flashbacks break down for the rest of the season:
• No. 17: Desmond
• No. 18: Jin and Sun
• No. 19: Non-traditional flashback time
• No. 20: Benjamin
• No. 21: Charlie
• And the two-part season finale: Jack.
I am sure they will handle it in a very cool way. Now I can't wait to see the episode.
Here's an idea...It might be a Dharma episode, where we get to see what happened years ago, and the "flashbacks" could be of the future.
