There’s a huge rumor going around the Internet today about a character on a popular island-based TV show (we won’t say which). Is it true? We have no idea. But if you’re the type of person who likes to be surprised by completely unforeseen events in your televised entertainment, we’d recommend that you stop reading this post immediately.
Okay. You promise not to leave us angry comments if we spoil this for you? Read on!
We’ve always assumed that the question of whether Kate would choose Jack or Sawyer would be resolved in one of Lost’s final episodes in 2010 — but if today’s rumor is true, she may not live to see this year’s season finale. According to Zap2it, Evangeline Lilly is currently auditioning for pilots to air in the fall of 2009, signaling her availability during the time when Lost’s sixth season is set to film. If this is true, and Kate doomed, we hope it’s because the writers had long planned to kill her off with a case of Island-nosebleed disease and not the result of Lilly coming down with Shelley Long disease.
