Six Lost season five episodes named

File this under "For hardcore Lost psychos only!!" which certainly applies to us here at TV.com. Any Lost news sets off an alarm around the offices as though someone forgot to punch in 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 into our main server, and details on the mysterious season five are always met with spirited chit-chat.

The latest nugget of info to hit the Internet are the titles of the first six episodes of Lost's fifth season, according to the very reliable Dark UFO spoilers Web site. They are:

Episode 5.01 "Because You Left"
Episode 5.02 "The Lie"
Episode 5.03 "Jughead"
Episode 5.04 "The Little Prince"
Episode 5.05 "This Place is Death"
Episode 5.06 "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham"

We shouldn't try to guess what each episode is about, but we're going to do it anyway. Our guesses (which are probably very wrong):

"Because You Left"--Typical eye-popping Lost season opener. Gives us an idea of what this season will be about, which is about the Oceanic Six returning to the island. It's more about Ben explaining why they have to return.

"The Lie"--The Oceanic Six had to lie their butts off about what really happened on Flight 815, and it's ripping people apart. But the truth has to come out eventually, and it may just do so in this episode.

"Jughead"--errr...a possible reference to the Archie comic books? And the most Jughead-ish of them all is Hurley, so we'll just say this one is about Hurley.

"The Little Prince"--Obviously a shout-out to little Aaron. (Or maybe Walt?) We'll see how the little guy fits into this puzzle here. Also, another classic entry for the Lost book club.

"This Place is Death"--Finally, an island-centric episode. Who is left on the island!? What's going on on the island!? A lot of dying, apparently.

"The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham"--This is the episode we've all been waiting for. How the heck did John Locke (or his alter ego Jeremy Bentham) end up in the coffin? We find out here, and it's awesome.

Again, those are just crazy theories, and probably very wrong. We took stabs at it, now it's your turn. Post your episode predictions in the comments section below!
