No more Jack?

Would Lost really kill off Jack? One of the reasons I love this show is it's willingness to do almost anything, but I wonder whether the producers would willingly go that far. (Granted, if Matthew Fox bolts to do more movies, there really isn't much they could do to prevent it.)

As I've previously mentioned, my wife and I have an "untouchables" theory regarding Jack, Kate, Sawyer and Locke, meaning that the show will never get rid of these characters. That theory can't cover when stars decide to get out while the show is in its prime, though, so we'll have to wait and see.

Maybe all of this is one reason why the producers awkwardly introduced two new cast members at the beginning of this season by pretending that they had been part of the crash survivors all along. Note to the producers: If Fox or anyone else leaves, please do kill them off or somehow explain their absences. Don't recast the roles. (I don't really think they're that foolish, but it has crossed my mind.)

Well said, on all accounts. Although I agree there are untouchables, I do enjoy that it seems they're willing to get rid of almost anyone (traffic violations do make it easier, I think).

Me, too. I really liked Libby, for example, but I was also thrilled that they shocked us with her death the way they did. I felt the same about Shannon and Boone, too.

How about this...since we think he's "untouchable" he just might expendable. Hmmmmm. Maybe they kill them off to another part of the "island"...aaaahhhh. Maybe.

I'd say just about anything is possible with Lost. That's part of the appeal for me, so if they did do something crazy like killing Jack off, I'd have to respect it. I'd be bummed, though. He's one of my favorites, but then again, so was Mr. Eko.
