Obama vs. LOST

After originally alluding to the postponement of the season six premiere of LOST for a State of the Union address, President Obama must have given in to the power of the island.

The president of the land of the free has wisely chosen to forego the February 2 time slot he was planning to use to address his country. Instead, anxious viewers will be able to tune in and answer some of the island's most pertinent mysteries. LOST creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have promised fans that the sixth and final season will reveal the island's secrets. What happened to Juliet when she detonated the bomb? Did the bomb prevent Oceanic 815 from crashing? The creators have also promised that missing character Claire (Emilie de Ravin) will return.

Fans have Twitter to thank for keeping their precious show's air date. A #NoStateofUnionFeb2 hashtag was seen on thousands of Twitter pages last week, including mine. On January 8, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs announced that the annual speech will definitely not land on February 2.

LOST creators Lindelof and Cuse took to their Twitter pages to express their joy. Lindelof tweeted, "OBAMA BACKED DOWN!!!! Groundhog Day is OURS!!!!!!!! (God Bless America)." Cuse tweeted the more low-key, "No State of the Union conflict with LOST! We go Feb. 2!" He followed up with the witty, "In exchange for moving his speech, Damon and I promise to answer ANY questions the President has about LOST."

Once again, the world is at peace. The power of Twitter has brilliantly highlighted yet again and LOSTies can enjoy the final season in peace.
