Oddly enough, one of the worst-kept secrets in television at the moment–at least from where I am–came from Lost, from the very same people who’ve earned a notoriety for not spilling anything when a new season comes by.  Yes, it’s the one about Dominic Monaghan’s return to the series, which began as a fan base wish that become more and more apparent within the coming weeks.

I mean, after that ABC promo–which apparently was about him joining Lost‘s “successor”, Flash Forward–everyone was abuzz with whether he is coming back.  He drowned, he had that note in his palm, and he was spotted having breakfast with the show runners, which just triggered more talk of a return.  I think the Lost folks eventually gave up, judging from what happened at the Comic-Con last week, when Dominic popped up at the end of their final panel.

So he is returning, right?  Looks like it.  They’re not yet saying anything, but it’s more than obvious, especially if you put together the nuclear bomb and all those alternate timelines that will supposedly mark the final season this January.  But here’s good news for Charlie Pace fans: E! Online reports that he is indeed returning to Lost‘s final season.  The deal is through, and he is slated for three episodes.

Of course, the big question now is what he’ll be doing in the series.  Lost being a confusing series, we’ll have to wait until January to know when he’s just a flashback, an apparition, or alive after all.  Maybe he didn’t drown.  Maybe he did drown but something else happened.  Ahhh, I give up.  For now, at least.
