Any idea on when Lost will air its premiere in 2009? — JennyMickey: ABC usually releases the date in late October, so we'll keep you posted. (DarkUFO, FWIW, hears the show might be returning to Wednesdays, starting Feb. 4.) In the meantime, I have some scoop to tide you over. When I spoke with Michael Emerson at the Emmys, he told me, "Ben's mission has changed, time has passed, he has different resources... and he moves around a lot." He also hinted that he might have a scene with Desmond coming up, which begs the question: Desmond's back?
