I agree, LisaPooh -- the big question on my mind is WHY these four? My first thought is these 4 are considered "bad" by the others and maybe their biggest threat and they want to capture them -- BUT --
--while Jack is annoying as all heck with his attitude, I never thought of him as bad. Though he is Locke's nemesis or the Yang to Locke's Yin, in a way.
--Sawyer can easily fit the "bad" mold (but I love him anyway).
--Kate has been very bad in her past, but it wasn't like she murdered an innocent person.
--Hurley seems all around nice guy, no threat -- so why is he among the four??
I can't wait until next week to get some more answers, along with a million new questions, I'm sure. I agree that last night's ep was very slow and paled in comparison to the previous 2. Michael just gets on my nerves -- just too over-the-top. Yes, I understand you want Walt back, but chill out a little. I hope they find out Michael murdered Ana & Libby before the end of next week's ep. What will Hurley do when he finds out?
Sayid is the MAN and I can't wait to see what plan he comes up with. I'm thinking maybe he will follow them as a backup to see what is going on, but he would need a couple of others and with Eko on a one-track mission with the button & Locke off in his own world (I think he's off to find the others himself for answers) -- the only ones left are Jin & Charlie -- not a very good "recon army," to say the least.
