What (other) character will die on 'Lost's' fifth season?

"Lost" was a rerun last night, so The Televangelist took the week off. However, that's no reason why we should take a break from pointless speculation about the show, especially given this week's rumor that a major character will be killed off this season. A few weeks ago the buzz had Evangeline "Kate" Lilly leaving the show and auditioning for a new series, but that rumor has apparently been quashed. Yesterday, though, E! Online posted an item claiming:

  • A current series regular is getting killed before the end of season five.
  • The character who will die is someone who is much-loved by many of you fans.
  • This is a real leaving-the-show death, à la Shannon or Charlie, not a quick-fix time-travel death like Jeremy Bentham/John Locke.
  • The character getting killed off is not, I repeat, not Evie's character Kate Austen.

So the question is, who? Given that the show just brought Jin and Locke back from the dead a few episodes ago, bumping them off would seem pretty cruel. One theory seems to suggest that Juliet's number is up -- but would they kill off another female character so soon after Charlotte's demise? ? I personally would find it fascinating if it were Jack -- according to the "Lost" Season One DVD, the show creators considered killing off Jack at the end of the pilot, as a way of setting up Kate to be the show's true protagonist.That's probably unlikely, so who? Anybody but Hurley. Or Desmond...
