Lost fans already got a very trippy introduction to next week’s episode, “The Last Recruit,” courtesy of ABC’s Willy Wonka trailer.  That seems appropriate since the episode is airing on 4/20.  Now we have the official press release with the guest cast to give us insight into who will be back for this episode.

SPOILER WARNING: Don’t read if you don’t want to know who’s returning on Lost.

First, if you missed it, check out the very surreal Willy Wonka trailer.

“The Last Recruit” doesn’t offer much in terms of guest cast or description.  The official plot synopsis simply says, “Alliances are forged and broken as the Locke and Jack camps merge.”  That’s as vague a description as anyone could possibly provide.

Here are the major returning faces in next week’s episode:

Andrea Gabriel as Nadia

Sayid’s real world soulmate and altverse sister-in-law returns, so maybe Desmond next job as Altverse Cupid will be to get her back with Sayid.

Dylan Minnette as David

Jack’s altverse son is back, hopefully providing answers about who his mother is.

Teresa Huang as surgeon, Skyler Stone as EMT #1 and Todd Coolidge as EMT #2

This trio suggests that Locke’s altverse story will pick up where we left off with the hit-and-run victim being taken to a hospital, most likely Jack’s.  Interestingly enough, Todd Coolidge also played one of the paramedics who transported Desmond to the hospital after Ben shot him in “The Variable.”

Kimberley Joseph as Cindy , Mickey Graue as Zack and Kiersten Havelock as Emma

Everyone’s favorite surreal almost nuclear Island family, flight attendant Cindy Chandler and little kids Zack and Emma, will return once again.

Lost airs Tuesday at 9pm on ABC.
