'Lost' Spoilers – Details on Episode 3

Episode 2.03: Orientation”ยจ
Airdate: October 5, 2005

Jack, Locke and Kate learn more secrets about the hatch. Meanwhile, after being beaten and taken captive, Sawyer, Michael and Jin wonder if their captors are fellow survivors or the dreaded “Others.”

Katey Sagal will guest-star on an episode of “Lost” early this season, but her role for the moment is as cryptic as the meaning of Hurley’s numbers. The former “8 Simple Rules” star will be playing a character named Helen in the third episode this season. It seems more likely that she would appear in the show’s flashback scenes; higher-profile guest stars were primarily used that way in “Lost’s” first season.

Helen may become a recurring character. Helen is another woman in her forties who is sexy, convivial, enchanting and a bit out of her rocker, with a dark side and a mean past.

It also appears that the flashback for the episode, titled “Orientation,” will concern Locke (Terry O’Quinn). Kevin Tighe (“Murder One”), who appeared last season as Locke’s father, Cooper, will reprise his role. This is episode is focusing on Locke.

The show’s producers have said episode three contains a fairly major revelation about what’s inside the hatch.

Guest starring are Henry Ian Cusick as Desmond, Kevin Tighe as Cooper, Curtis Jackson as security guard, Katey Sagal as Helen, Roxie Sarhangi as Francine, Jeanne Rogers as moderator, Marvin Candle as Dr. Marvin Candle and Michael Lanzo as waiter.
