Drinkin’ and Drivin’ Is Bad for Your Career

For any Lost fans who haven’t watched last night’s episode, stop reading now. You’ve been warned.

As rumoured, Anna Lucia (Michelle Rodriguez) and Libby (Cynthia Watros) had some bullet holes put in them at the end of episode. You may recall that these two castaways were both busted minutes apart last December for drinking and driving.

There was much speculation that Rodriguez’s character’s belligerent behaviour extended off screen as well and producers were fed up with her. She told the arresting Hawaii 5-0: "I don’t fucking belong here! Why don’t you just put a gun to my head and shoot me! You’ve already taken my freedom! You might as well take my life too!"

She got her wish. Having just finished her five-day stint in the clink last week her life was taken on the show. Much like on the show, perhaps Watros was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Meanwhile the show's producers insist they weren’t delivering any moral message about the perils of drunk driving. "It's going to look like this is the Lost producers' attempt to say, 'Don't drive drunk!'" Damon Lindelof told TVGuide.com, insisting the decision to kill off the characters came before the incident.

I guess we’ll never know for sure. It’s the great thing about conspiracy theories – they can never be disproved by those who want to believe.
