Since the principal cast of Lost has changed from season to season, what do you think next season will look like? I'm imagining something like this:
James "Sawyer" Ford
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes
I imagine Richard will finally get main character status, due to his being much more prominent this season than in the past. Also, with Lapidus back on the island and not going anywhere if Ilana has anything to say about it, I wouldn't be surprised if he saw a jump in airtime as well. As far as who's been taken off the main character list, my reasoning is as follows: Obviously, Charlotte's dead. I believe another main character will be killed off before the season's over, and have narrowed it down to three possibilities: Ben, Daniel, or Desmond (of course, my three favorite characters). Since the smoke monster let Ben live, I don't know what the point would be of killing him off directly after. Daniel just returned after an absence, so I don't think they'd kill him either. So that leaves Desmond, as much as it pains me to say it. However, I'm not so sure Daniel will return as a main character. Something tells me he's not finished with all this time traveling business, which would make him unable to be with the rest of the characters most of the time. But I do think he'll pop up every once in a while. Part of me wants to put Claire on this list as well, but while I do believe we'll see her again, I'm not really sure how frequently.
So, any thoughts on this?
