After last season’s explosive “Lost” finale, fans were abuzz trying to figure out just what the heck that flash of light meant for everyone on the island.
The character most in jeopardy, was Elizabeth Mitchell’s Juliet, whom we last saw detonating a nuclear device. Mitchell was one of the panelists at Thursday’s (July 23) “Entertainment Weekly: Wonder Women: Female Power Icons in Pop Culture” panel at Comic-Con, and her possible return to “Lost” was on everyone’s mind.
“It really depends,” Mitchell says. “I was talking to [producers] Damon [Lindeloff] and Carlton [Cuse], and they [told me], the best thing to say [here] is [that a return] depends on whether Jack’s plan [to prevent the crash from ever happening] works or not.”
Of course, Mitchell is a series regular on the new show “V” — which films in Vancouver — which could provide a wrinkle in any comeback plans since that’s quite a distance from Hawaii where “Lost” is shot. However, both shows air on ABC, so here’s hoping everyone plays nice and lets her appear on both shows.
Do you want Juliet to return for the final season of “Lost”?

We were among the FEW that were able to get ourselves into the line to get a few moments with EM. She was super sweet and took a few extra seconds to chat. I told her that ALL of the us love her on LOST and hope to see much more of her. That she rocks and can’t wait to see her on V. She was very happy, shook my hand and took a pic as well!!

Hello from muggy San Diego! For one of my first activities here at Comic-Con, I attended a panel led by Entertainment Weekly titled “Wonder Women: Female Power Icons in Pop Culture” and featuring Sigourney Weaver, Eliza Dushku, Zoe Saldana and Elizabeth Mitchell in the hot seats.
Elizabeth Mitchell talked about her role on Lost and getting better roles after the age of 30: Mitchell was predictably coy when answering any question about her role as Juliet on Lost, a role that the EW moderator called “morally slippery,” and “the most complicated female character that any woman has had to play on television.” Mitchell explained that she likes playing “complicated women, they’re enticing to me,” and that she was told by Lost producers to say that Juliet’s fate “just depends on whether Jack’s plan works or not.” When the issue of age came up, she emphatically stated that “I have played better roles now after the age of 30. . . . I was called sexy for the first time at the age of 38 and I was thrilled! . . . I think we’re allowed to be sexier, I think we’re allowed to be all of those things after the age of 30. That has, of course, been in television,” she added, acknowledging once again that opportunities for women in TV are greater than those in movies.

Elizabeth said that she talked to Damon and Carlton and they told her to say that her coming back on LOST depends on whether or not Jack’s plan works or not. She also said that it’s a cliff hanger, so…we have to wait and see.

Some lines from the pannel
G4T: The guy from EW just promised that Elizabeth Mitchell would tell us everything she knows about the last season of Lost! Oh noes, I think he was kidding.
G4T: Now Elizabeth Mitchell from Lost.
EM: I’ll be back depending on whether or not Jack’s plan works or not.
G4T: At the end of Lost this season, Juliet’s fate was left up in the air, a cliffhanger if you will.
EM: There is somewhat of a fear of sexuality in our culture. I was a huge fan of Sci-Fi when I was younger and I loved what it could do for women. They could be vibrant and strong.
EM: I’ve been cast in my best roles after the age of 30. We’re allowed to be sexy as we get older.

V series re-imagining sneeked at Comic-Con. Pilot for V is very good. Warner Brothers Studio and ABC-TV sneeked the pilot for the new series “V”. The “Visitors” arrive and claim to want to help us, be friends, and then leave us better than they found us. I DON’T THINK SO!
The re-imagining of “V”, was a good show Wednesday night at Comic-Con.
Will it be better than the original, maybe not better, but different. Better special effects and actually better acting. A beautiful beautiful (but evil?) Visitor leader named Anna (Morena Baccarat.) Others in the cast were stand-outs also, Morris Chestnut is excellent as a bit of a mysterious character, however a seemingly good guy.
I particularly liked, Elizabeth Mitchell as the mother/FBI agent who is loosing touch with her son.
If you get a chance check out the original, however this new imagining is a good stand alone show.
