Matthew Fox by Mario Perez/ABC
is about to go somewhere it never has before: two steps forward, no steps back. Per AintItCoolNews.com, Episode 19 will be 100 percent flashback-free. The hour, says the website's mole, "focuses on one of Season 1's 'mysteries' - if that's the right word."
: A source at ABC has since whispered to TVGuide.com, "Although the episode doesn't have a traditional flashback, the flashback device is still used." Hmmm....
For the record, the flashback lineup for the season's remaining eps is as follows:
" No. 17: Desmond
" No. 18: Jin and Sun
" No. 19: Nontraditional flashback time
" No. 20: Benjamin
" No. 21: Charlie
" And the two-part season finale: Jack, natch
Which of the above flashbacks are you looking forward to most? Vote here.
