Michelle Rodriguez, arguably one of the more polarizing personalities to have ever gotten Lost, is returning to the show this season, multiple sources confirm to me exclusively.
Details of her comeback are, not surprisingly, shrouded in secrecy, but here’s what I can tell you:
• Rodriguez is back for one episode, most likely this season’s second. As a result, the risk to Hawaii’s roadways is said to be minimal.
• Given that Ana Lucia’s bullet-riddled body is probably entering the selesai stage of rigor mortis, conventional Lost wisdom (if there is such a thing) suggests she’ll be appear in someone’s flashback or via hallucination. The fact that Cheech Marin is also on the guest list for eppy 2, suggests that it’s most likely the latter and the person seeing dead people is Hurley. There’s also this theory, put forth by EW’s own Doc Jensen: “Maybe Ana Lucia busted L.A.-based Ghost Hustler Miles during her pre-crash LAPD days, and now the freighter folkster is seeing visions of the late Tailie on the Island!”
• Rodriguez’ return follows last season’s “resurrection” of fellow doomed tailie Cynthia Watros (Libby), who appeared in a vision to Michael. Could Mr. Eko next, thus completing, as Jensen jests, the Busted Tailie Storyline Redemption Tour?”
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves — first we’ve got to process this MR news, and that means posing the following question to Lost fans: Are you looking forward to seeing Ana Lucia again, even if for just a brief stint? Or would you have preferred her remain dead and buried alongside Paolo and Nikki? Sound off below!
