Analyzing the new Lost promo - VIDEO
Since the show doesn't return until 2009 (sniff), there's no time like the present to dissect this promo to an insane degree. I'll save the clip and my speculation for after the jump. For the record, I thought the promo was fantastic and gave us just enough to salivate over.
Kate and Aaron - It looks like Kate is heeding Claire's warning about taking Aaron back to the island. She'll probably be the biggest obstacle to Ben's Locke-saving mission.
Hurley is armed and dangerous - I can't wait to see this moment play out. Hurley was so tortured and sad in the flash-forwards last season. If the promo is any indication, Hugo got his mojo back after Sayid took him away from Santa Rosa and invisible Eko.
Sun gets locked in - All we saw of post-island Sun was the moment where she was locked in a room. Was that a police officer standing guard outside? The clip also made it look like Sun turned around to look at someone else who was inside. Perhaps her alliance with Widmore has put her in danger.
Is Daniel back on the island? This was the most intriguing part of the promo for me. You can see a person in a hazmat suit pulling a gun on someone resembling Daniel Faraday. There was also a brief shot of Daniel in a hard hat. Daniel's fate was still up in the air at the end of last season. He was on the raft with a few redshirts when the island disappeared. How did the raft find the island again?
There are plenty of other moments to discuss -- Juliet digging something up, the bloody compass, etc. -- so have at it, fans!
