Lost Creates New Mystery

Last year Lost concentrated on the mystery of what is in the hatch. Next season is expected to be about the mystery of The Others and possibly also answer what is really going on with Desmond. There is yet another mystery about Lost–why are those Tailies such awful drivers? Last season Michelle Rodriguez, who played Ana-Lucia Cortez and Cynthia Watros, who played Libby, were arrested for drunk driving, and subsequently killed off on the show in an episode entitled Two For The Road (story under the fold). Now Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays Mr. Eko, has been arrested for driving without a license. All three characters are among the Tailies–people who were in the tail section of the crashed plan and separated from the main group until the second season.

Last season showed that arrests on traffic violations can be shorten the survival of characters on this show. Eko’s fate was somewhat in question as he was in the hatch when it was apparently destroyed at the end of the second season. It is assumed his presence in Hawaii, where the show is filmed, means he is returning (although this is no guarantee as some characters have returned in flash backs after their death). It has already been announced that Desmond would return, increasing the chances that Eko could also have survived.

Lost: Two For The Road

ABC sure knows how to deal with drunk drivers. Warning–do not read if you plan on watching last night’s Lost as there are major spoilers.

Michelle Rodriguez, who plays Ana-Lucia Cortez and Cynthia Watros, who plays Libby, have been an embarassment after both were arrested for drunk driving. Last night, in one of the more surprising twists to date on Lost, Michael shot both. Presumably he’s being forced by the Others to do their bidding if he is to ever see Walt again, or perhaps he is suffering from the mysterious illness which made Rousseau’s group go crazy.

I wonder if this had been planned since they were added to the cast this season, or if ABC just decided they didn’t want the unfavorable publicity. Perhaps one clue that they were both removed from the show related to their drunk driving convictions is the title for the episode: Two For The Road.
