Sadly, tonight is a repeat of Lost, but next week the show returns and there are only five hours left.  The May 4 episode, "The Candidate," looks like it will continue to focus on the relationship between Jack and Locke, both on the Island and in the altverse.

Which familiar faces are back?  Let's take a look at the official guest cast list for "The Candidate" to find out.

First, here's the official episode description:

"Jack must decide whether or not to trust Locke after he is asked to follow through on a difficult task."

Katey Sagal as Helen

Locke's fiancee is back, most likely at her future husband's side at the hospital.

Kevin Tighe as Anthony Cooper

Locke's dad hasn't been seen on Lost since season 3's "The Brig" when Sawyer killed him.  The only question is whether he's back to take care of his hospitalized son or if Detective James Ford finally finds him.  Or both.

Sam Anderson as Bernard

We saw Rose as Locke's career counselor, now it's Bernard's time to come back.  But here's a more important question: since Rose and Bernard were on the Island in 1977 when Jughead exploded, were they also blasted back to 2007 with everyone else?

The episode will also feature Alan Dale as Charles Widmore and several of his people on the Island.  Lost airs Tuesdays at 9pm on ABC.
