Update on Lost's Episode 19

Update 5/2: LOST Episode 19, has aired. click here to read my thoughts on the episode.

Late last week, news broke that ABC's great television program Lost was going off the grid and abandoning the flashbacks which the shows has famously used throughout its first three seasons for an episode which continues the build towards the series third season finale. I blogged about it at the time, speculating on what the producers and writers may be planning, especially when news broke that flashbacks would be used, just in a way we haven't seen before. Well, now more information has come out about Episode 19 and we know exactaly what it'll be about. For those that don't want to be spoiled, I've included a "jump" below, so if you are reading this on the main-page, and don't want to be spoiled, you won't be.

Okay, so here's what we now know. Ain't It Cool News, who first reported the flashback-less episode, has a new update on what is planned for Episode 19.

UPDATE!! Another reputable source told us late last night that 3.19 WILL contain flashbacks, and they'll be Locke flashbacks. So I called my original source (the one who said no flashbacks for 3.19), and that source said my latter source was right. The original source got confused because all of Locke's flashbacks are very RECENT flashbacks. All apparently take place on Dharma Island (or thereabouts) subsequent to Ben reintroducing Locke to his daddy (the last time we all saw Locke)

ABC themselves, in releasing a description of the episode, may have inadvertently spoiled too much. Here's the text from
A newly focused Locke breaks away from "The Others" in an attempt to persuade Sawyer to help rid them of a great nemesis that has caused nothing but pain in both of their lives. Meanwhile, a new island inhabitant discloses some shocking information about Oceanic Flight 815.

Ignoring the "new island inhabitant" information (we do know though that the great Marsha Thomason, previously of Las Vegas will be playing said inhabitant) it appears that Locke likely learned what many online have speculated about, that his father, life long con-man was the "original" Sawyer, who conned Sawyer's mother, and led to Sawyer's father's breakdown. I'm surprised ABC would just give that piece of information out. And as for the flashback itself, it should be really interesting. Locke has always been my favorite character on the show, certainly the most interesting character on the show, and seeing what he has been up to will be well worth watching. It's great to see Lost on the comeback trial after a slow start to the season. I'm very excited about this show again, as are a lot of fans.
