"Lost Clip Show" airs WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 21 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Please note: This program will repeat Saturday, Jan. 24, from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET.
When Oceanic Flight 815 crashed on an island in the middle of the Pacific, each survivor was given a choice to live together or die alone. Thrown together in this mysterious place, they have struggled to overcome shadows from their past in order to survive. Where are they? What else is on this island, and why is Charles Widmore so interested in it? Is Ben really one of the good guys? What really happened to the Dharma Initiative? Is rescue on its way? Rescue, indeed� Jack, Kate, Hurley, Sayid, Sun and Claire's son, Aaron � otherwise known as the Oceanic 6 � have been rescued and are trying to pick up the pieces of the lives they knew before the crash and perpetuate the lie concocted to hide the truth of what really happened. But will Jack and Ben be able to convince all of them to return to the island � including taking Locke's (a.k.a. Jeremy Bentham) body with them -- in order to save those left behind? Locating the island may prove even more difficult since Ben moved it. It's not just a question of where it went, but when. These questions and more will be examined to prepare for the shocking Season Five premiere that will change everything.
