Tomorrow night's episode of Lost
, entitled "The Constant," will finally introduce us to the mysterious freighter people we've been hearing so much about. Showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have promised that the freighter crew will have their own unique mysteries and agendas, which should make for some fascinating viewing. Now we have our hands on a few promo pics and an exciting clip from the episode, all of which reveal some enticing hints of what we can expect tomorrow night. I think it goes without saying that these potentially dangerous strangers should not be trusted.
ABC's description of "The Constant" reads: "Sayid (Naveen Andrews
) and Desmond run into turbulence on their way to the freighter, causing Desmond to suffer unusual side effects." What those side effects are is anyone's guess, but I wonder if it has something to do with Desmond's formerly time tripping mind. This episode will also give us our first glimpse at freighter man George Minkowski, played by Fisher Stevens.
Here we see Minkowski strapped down for some unknown reason. The bag with the biohazard symbol indicates that Minkowski might have some sort of infection or disease, which would explain why Regina has been answering the phone lately.
Another pic of Minkowski shows that Fisher Stevens is looking a little worse for wear these days. It's weird to think that he once dated Michelle Pfeiffer.
Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick
) arrives on the freighter, surrounded by two mysterious people.
Below is a preview clip from the episode:
