Our favorite castaways since Gilligan's Island are back. ABC's Lost bows tonight at 9 pm, focusing on Jack, Sawyer and Kate dealing with their capitvity by The Others.

In USA Today (warning: minimal spoilers ahead):

Tonight, The Others will unveil their new fall wardrobe. And don't expect them to be living in what producers dubbed "Yurtville" — that primitive community of skin tents where Michael was reunited with Walt and that was discovered abandoned by Sayid (Naveen Andrews) in the finale. "The viewers will be introduced to a surprising, civilized new setting. It appears we've been on the island a long, long time," Emerson teases...

As the season progresses, island flashbacks will provide viewers with more information on the actions of The Others since the crash of Flight 815. "One of the things we're exploring this year is how we tend to objectify people in society that we don't know anything about," Cuse says. "We start to see what the world might look like from The Others' point of view and what their view of our people might be."

Says Fox: "For two seasons, the audience and these characters have vilified these mysterious Others. In one fell swoop, we're going to be thrust into 180-degree switch of perspective in looking at the situation from their point of view."

And there's all this talk about the Jack-Kate-Sawyer love triangle, too. But for that to exist, shouldn't there be a little nookie nookie amongst at least two of them? A kiss does not a love triangle make. A menage a trois does. But we doubt that will happen. In fact, it looks like Kate will be involved in a romance...but really, we're not pitying the girl. There's not really a bad choice between Jack and Sawyer, is there? According to the

aforementioned article:
It may be no coincidence that Jack, Sawyer and Kate, the players in one of TV's hottest love triangles, ended up on The Others' most-wanted list. "The love story is a part of it," [Executive Producer Carlton] Cuse says. "The Others have been observing our characters, and (the three) will be pretty surprised to discover that." But the love triangle that launched almost right from the series debut soon will crumble when Kate chooses between Sawyer and Jack, and Jack meets the mysterious Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell).

Hmm. Then again, this is Lost. If producers really want to stun us, how about setting Kate up with Henry Gale?
