Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse confirmed to EW.com that Maggie Grace, who plays Boone’s step-sister Shannon, would return to the show for the final season.
“We’re really excited about having her back on the show,” says Cuse, “and we have a good story for her.” The producers would not specify how many episodes she would appear in.
Harold Perrineau, Cynthia Watros, and Rebecca Mader are among the other dearly departed who will guest-star in LOST’s final season.
I’m really jazzed about Cynthia Watros (Libby) coming back and intrigued by Rebecca Mader (Charlotte) coming back, because I felt like both of them had their stories cut short – Libby’s by off-screen DUI, Charlotte’s by the writer’s strike. I’m pretty indifferent to Harold Perrineau’s return as Michael – I don’t know what’s left to do with that character.
But Shannon? “We have a good story for her.”?! There wasn’t a good story for her 4 years ago so the writers mercifully killed her off, now they’ve come up with one to shoehorn in late in the game?
I better be impressed, Lost guys.
