In last night’s Lost episode “Not in Portland” we were introduced to a new mysterious company named “Mittelos Bioscience”.
Accompanied by Ethan Rom, a man named Dr.Alpert wanted to hire Juliet as a fertility specialist at their facilities in Portland. As we later find out, the facilities are not in Portland at all, but probably on the Lost island.
At their first meeting Juliet says she can’t take the job, because her ex-husband would never let her go unless he was hit by a bus. Dr.Alpert must have been very interested in getting Juliet to work with them, because the next time we see Juliet’s ex, Edmund Burke (named after the philosopher with the same name), he is run over by a bus.
As we find out in “Not in Portland”, Juliet accepted Dr.Alpert’s offer and has been living on the island for 3 years, 2 months and 28 days. She also reveals to Jack that Ben isn’t letting her leave.
There is no doubt in my mind that Mittelos Bioscience is a part of The Hanso Foundation and the Dharma Initiative.
The name “Mittelos” is an anagram for “Lost Time”. This could be a further indication that there is something strange going on with the time on the island. Perhaps time moves slower on the island as part of the Hanso Foundation life extension aspirations?
The website mittelosbioscience.org appeared some days ago.
This is all very interesting, but the site appears to be a fan-made hoax.
Lost script supervisor Gregg Nations has said that it is not an official website.
