We recycle everything and we turn off the water,” says Lost star Josh Holloway (pictured right), who’ll return Feb. 2 for the ABC series’ final season, one he sums up as “intense. You'll laugh, you'll cry, everything. Pretty much every episode this season is a stinger. They're pulling out all the stops, both emotionally and physically. There's a lot of action, a lot of stuff going on.” Many familiar faces will return, including actors who’ve since landed other series, such as Sonya Walger (Penny) of FlashForward , Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet) of V, and Ian Somerhalder (Boone), now on The Vampire Diaries.
While he claims not to know or want to know how the intricate plot will resolve, Holloway no longer thinks his character Sawyer should die. “They have put him through every situation possible, emotionally and physically,” he told MNN. “He’s had to walk the fine line of discovering his humanity yet keeping his edge, and that humanity that he's been forced to acknowledge and grow with is going to come into play. He’s got some things that he needs to rectify, and hopefully the lessons he learned on the island will translate in real life and he can have a second chance.”
Holloway, who plans to keep his place in Hawaii along with one in L.A., “where the work is,” says he owes everything to Lost. “I’ve had so many life-changing experiences since the show has begun. I've gotten married. I've got my first home, validation as an actor, a baby. It's just been quite a phenomenal journey and an honor.”
