While many of us Arzt fans feel that his loss to Ms. Hawking was the first true upset of the tourney, we have seen the first significant upset in the form of part-timer Danielle Rousseau taking out main cast member Claire Littleton. This just goes to show you that even main Losties are not safe from elimination, though Claire did keep it reasonably close.
The second matchup was much more predictable. Our Sawyer was no less brutal with the original Sawyer in their Cup mathchup than he was in the brig of the Black Rock. Rocketing out to the highest margin of victory so far this round, James Ford reigned supreme over Anthony Cooper in the Battle of the Sawyers.
Tonight we get a little taste of what's likely in store for future rounds- seemingly difficult decisions between strong characters. The first matchup is pits someone's son against someone's dad. It's Walt vs. Christian Shephard.
The second matchup is where the heartache will lie. In a matchup that may stir up some debate, Jin will try his luck against the very popular Charlie. Will the Korean topple the Brit, or will sympathy for Charlie's death carry him through to the next round?
We'll find out in about a day, once you've all voted. :-)
Walter “Walt” Lloyd
Status: Lostie (Unknown)
Walt grew up with his mother, never knowing his biological father, Michael. When Susan died suddenly, Walt's step-father contacted Michael, begging him to take the boy. Many have described him as 'special.' Walt was kidnapped from the raft by the Others and held captive for some time. He was last seen being allowed to leave the Island with his father, after Michael cut a deal with the Others.

Former Chief of Surgery at St. Sebastian’s Hospital in LA and father of Jack Shephard, Christian’s career was ruined by his alcoholism. After being stripped of his license, he fled to Australia, where he attempted to make contact with his illegitimate daughter, Claire Littleton. He was later found dead in an alley, apparently from a heart attack.
Status: Lostie (Alive)
The son of a poor, Korean fisherman, Jin was determined to have a good job. After meeting and falling in love with Sun, Jin was given a job by her father, doing his dirtywork. Since the crash, life has been difficult for Jin, who is only starting to learn English, barely able to communicate with his fellow survivors.
Status: Lostie (Deceased)
Charlie was once the bassist for the rock band Driveshaft. His brother and band mate Liam is somewhat responsible for Charlie’s addiction to heroin. On the Island, Charlie kicked his drug habit with some help from Locke. Charlie also helped take care of Claire’s baby. After deactivating jamming equipment in an underwater station, Charlie drowned when Mikhail flooded the room Charlie was in.
