All Desmond needs is love. That seems to be the takeaway message of Tuesday's episode of Lost, which is cheekily titled "Happily Ever After," in which Des, Charlie and Daniel all pined for women they barely knew. Our beloved Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) and Penny (Sonya Walger) do finally reunite — again — but that's only the beginning. Cusick tells TVGuide.com who else he'll be consulting, what Mrs. Hawking's role is in the chaos, and the answer behind Lost — well, what he thinks it is anyway.

On Tuesday's episode of Lost, Desmond goes slip-siding through the time-space continuum again, and his role in Widmore's endgame for the island becomes slightly clearer — but only slightly.
Why does Charles Widmore bring Desmond to the island?
Once Widmore fills him in on his current location — which, needless to say, he's not happy about — he very matter-of-factly tells Des that he needs...
On this fair St. Patrick's Day, we thought we'd share a list of Irish people we'd love to share a pint with.
If Ireland could choose a poster boy or goodwill ambassador, we would nominate Conan O'Brien. He's got the trademark Irish red hair, blue eyes, freckles and dazzling wit. He also proved he can hold his own making and imbibing Irish cocktails when he raised a glass with Martha Stewart last St. Patrick's Day. Sláinte!

Sources confirm that Irish actress Fionnula Flanagan best known for her Oscar-worthy turn as Nicole Kidman's spooky housekeeper in The Others (and more recently for her role on Showtime's Brotherhood) is in Hawaii shooting a guest stint on Lost. Will she literally cross paths with an Other, thus causing the universe to explode? Doesn't sound like it. Executive producer Carlton Cuse hints that she's playing "a person very important in Desmond's life." In related news, just 86 more days until Lost returns!
Will the Caffee family of Providence ever achieve the mythic status of Jersey's Sopranos clan?
Probably not. Which shouldn't keep you from the darkly compelling world of Brotherhood (Sundays, 10 pm/ET). Showtime's morally ambiguous family saga (substituting thick Irish brogue for Italian swagger) is richly plotted and totally absorbing, one of summer TV's best surprises.
Shot distinctively on location, Brotherhood paints Providence as a cesspool of political chicanery and violent disorganized crime — each subculture embodied by a Caffee brother.
