A 'Lost' Love Triangle
October 3, 2006

Bound and gagged when we last saw them, our favorite castaways are still in captivity as the "Lost" season three premiere takes over primetime Wednesday.

"I have not been this excited about the show since the pilot," Evangeline Lilly, a.k.a. Kate, admitted.

Giddy as a schoolgirl and due for a little "Lost" loving, the anxious star let the cat out of the bag on our exclusive visit to the Hawaiian set.

"Kate's definitely going to lean one way or the other," she dished.

But what is Evangeline's personal preference of the on-screen Romeo?

"I don't have a preference; it's like choosing your big brother or your little brother," the starlet admitted. "I'm not going there."

When we caught up with Josh Holloway, who plays bad boy Sawyer, he wasn't too happy Evangeline got to pick her suitor.

"Why is it her decision?" he joked. "What if she says, 'I choose you,' and I go, 'That's alright, I'm busy.'"

All kidding aside, Josh shockingly revealed to us he would actually advise Kate to go with the other guy.

"I think Sawyer's a fun weekend, but Jack's the keeper," Josh advised.

Everyone's got an opinion on this one; even co-star Naveen Andrews.

"I'd choose Sawyer," Naveen laughed.

While her fellow castaways help Kate decide where her true love connection rests, Evangeline told "Extra:" "Choose is kind of an ambiguous word. I lean; I lean one way."

But before she can get her island groove on, a captive Kate is forced into a creepy breakfast situation with the mysterious Henry Gale.

And that’s just the beginning of what Evangeline promises to be the most intense season of “Lost” yet!

“The action is high, the romance is high, the mystery is high,” she promised.

“Lost” can be found back on primetime this Wednesday on ABC.
