Zuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuleikha Robinson!!

Normally, when Lost is all "here, have lots of casting spoilers!", I am all "dude, stop reporting these things, for they are stupid and I inevitably DON'T CARE."  But then I saw today in my delightful Ausiello feed that an "Amsterdam alum" had been cast, and my ears perked up, followed by WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, ZULEIKHA ROBINSON!  Despite my long tradition of largely not caring about actors/actresses beyond their specific role in a favorite television show, of mine there are a handful who just fill my heart with delight in every project.  She is one of those actresses.  So when favorite actress meets a favorite show, FIREWORKS HAPPEN.

Haha, and I don't even know what role she's playing.  I've been so full of joy I haven't clicked on the link yet.  Well, now I have.

I pretty much just want to quote everything.  Perhaps I shall.

Robinson's Lost deal calls for her to start off as a recurring player with an option to become a series regular in season 6 (a.k.a. the farewell season).   
Series regular!  Series regular, please, YES.  So now I have consolation, in the horrible horrible horrible possibility of an event that Juliet gets killed and the even morrible - what?  I was going for 'more horrible' and in my haste I made up a word -  wake of Rousseau and Alex's deaths, awesome strong female characters might still exist!  AHOY.

As I first reported last month, Ilana is described as a European female who possesses great intelligence but who's also dangerous as all get out. She's alluring and apparently used to getting her own way.
-Haha, that sounds kind of like Yves Adele Harlow, doesn't it?  WIN.

At the time, EW's Doc Jensen mused that Ilana "sounds exactly like the kind of lethal lady Sayid would fall for. So I’m wondering if the dashing Iraqi is due for a new love interest, yet another lady whose true motivations will be in question."
-OH PLEASE.  Oh please, oh please, oh please, because the hotness would just explode off the screen.  (After Shannon and Nadia, I don't have any more room to mourn the beauty that was Sayid In Love.  All I have left is a deep reserve of THAT'S HOT.)

Lost, I think I might be sort of excited for you to come back now, finally.  Don't screw this up.

Yep, that was worth an entire post.
