Maggie Grace, who played Shannon in Lost’s first two seasons before her character was killed off, will be returning for the show’s final season. Lost’s executive producers, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, confirmed to EW.com today that Grace will come back later this season, though it's unclear how many episodes she will appear in. Grace played Boone’s moody stepsister; the way this season is shaping up, though, she’ll probably return as some cheery librarian who randomly runs into Hurley in a parking lot instead.
