Okay, we know we're a little late on the Lost recap from last week's season premiere, but hopefully you'll forgive us. For those of you who haven't gotten a chance to sit down and let yourself be consumed by the island madness and mystery, just know that we're slowly (very, very slowly) learning more about The Others and why they're so goddamn creepy.

Lost is a show that will never please everyone at once, and the fact that a television show is able to spark so much debate is what makes it so good. Others might disagree, but we loved it. The first five minutes of Season three's first episode "A Tale of Two Cities" was a total mindtrip. Confirming audiences and islanders suspicians, the Others aren't the cave-dwelling simpletons they attempted to portray. With book clubs, muffin baking, and suburban architecture, at first glance, the Others would seem to fit in better on Wisteria Lane.

Okay, so what happens to Kate, Sawyer, and Jack? Well, Kate is put in a dress and is forced to eat a deeelicious breakfast with our old friend Henry Gale (who's real name is apparantly "Ben"). He creepily tells her that "the next two weeks are going to be very unpleasant." Oh my god, creepy. And poor, poor Sawyer. Not the smartest of the bunch, he showed us his ability to win a cookie by pressing a button, like your everyday lab rat. Sawyer as a caged monkey, basically.
