This Doesn't Bode Well For Season 4

We are still more than three months away from the beginning of the fourth season of LOST and some troubling news has surfaced today. No, it doesn't have to do with the impending writers strike that could shut down production of all television and movies as early as November. It is that yet another cast member of LOST has been arrested for DUI. This time fan favorite Daniel Dae Kim was arrested and released this morning on suspicion of driving under the influence in Honolulu. Things haven't worked out well for cast members cited for DUIs or other traffic violations.


Two years ago, Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros were arrested and charged with DUIs and their characters were subsequently killed off at the end of the second season. A year ago, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was arrested and charged with a traffic violation and his character was subsequently killed off early in the third season.

So what does today's news mean for Dae Kim and his character? Might Jin Kwon's days on the mysterious island be numbered? Many people thought he might die at the end of the third season at the hands of the Others but he managed to survive capture. Perhaps it was only a brief "stay of execution." On the other hand, Cynthia Watros' character Libby is rumored to be returning in flashbacks this season to complete her unfinished story, so this would imply that there is no ill feelings as a result of her arrest. I have a feeling that Jin won't be going anywhere anytime soon. But if anything does happen, are we going to have to hear about the LOST curse again? I sure hope not!
