ABC has generously screened the first two hours of Lost season 5 for critics, and while we won’t be giving away all the major details, BuddyTV will give a little tidbit about what you can see in these two hours every weekday leading up to the premiere on January 21 at 9pm on ABC.

On Lost, death never lasts forever, and in the season 5 premiere, fans will get a lot of formerly dead characters back. Some will actually appear and some will only be mentioned or referenced, but their ghosts live on.

First, as has been previously reported, Michelle Rodriguez shows up in the first two hours, reprising her role as Ana-Lucia. However, she’s not the only Tailie making a comeback. Though they may or may not appear onscreen, both Libby and Mr. Eko will make an impact during the premiere.

And they’re not the only ones. Do you remember Nikki and Paulo? If not, you will be reminded of them during the season premiere. Where and when I will not say, but their memory lives on.

If that’s not enough for you, at least one other major dead character will make a return to the show.

Tune in on January 21 at 9pm on ABC for the two-hour Lost season 5 premiere.
