A heart-breaker and a head-scratcher. That's the best way to some up our previous matchups. Eko proved victorious, but at the expense of the well-liked Alex. In contrast, the Smoke Monster laid down some serious hurt upon Danny Pickett, who still managed to earn himself 140 votes when all was said and done.
As we creep ever closer to the end of Round 1 we find ourselves, in the words of Sawyer, arguing over who's our favorite Other, and trying to decide between yet another pair of fathers who have been less than exemplary in behavior.
Cast those votes and feel free to hoot, holler, rant and rave in the comments section. It's been pretty entertaining on it's own so far. :-)
