ABC releases updated Lost cast pic
Am I crazy, or is this the first time they've ever done this for Lost?!? Nine episodes into the show's fifth season and ABC has released an updated cast photo. The only cast member killed off so far this season is Rebecca Mader's Charlotte (she finally succumbed to time-travelitis four episodes back in "This Place is Death") and as such, she's the only one omitted from the new photo while Daniel Dae Kim, who was MIA at the beginning of the season, has been added. I'm as big a Lost fanatic as the next guy and I love new stuff like this to analyze the hell out of, but was this really necessary?
Yes, I realize everyone pictured above, save for Desmond, is back on the island and the cityscape from the original pic doesn't really apply any more, but still... what's the significance of creating a new photo when only one very minor character has died? If Jack had died in the Ajira 316 crash - OK, then I'd feel good about a new photo. His death would justify it. Charlotte's doesn't. I don't think Jin's reappearance does either.
Which makes me wonder if there's something special about this new photo. The original photo had lots of little things to pick up on (all the DHARMA trash, Faraday's missing left foot) but I'm not seeing too much in the new one. Faraday has his foot back, there's still some trash, and Ben is sitting on a bed. Nothing really jumps out at me.
Who's got theories?
