While the votes weren't very close at all, reading your comments shows that yesterday's matchups weren't the easiest decision to make. In the end, Juliet and Kate were victorious, sending Sun and Mikhail to the great Character Cup hereafter.
But the insanity hasn't stopped yet, has it? There is still one more Main vs. Main matchup left in Round 2. But it isn't tonight, though we do see a pair of main character in action. I'll let you all do the math on that one and figure out what it means.
On to tonight's matchups! As I said, there's two main characters involved, though not against each other. In the first matchup, we're forced to play "Who's Your Favorite Other," as the head honcho takes on one of his minions. Will Ben snuff out another opponent, or does Richard Alpert have what it takes to topple his boss?
In the second matchup, another Other takes on an Other-killer. Will Tom go the distance and spoil Hurley's momentum, or will everyone's favorite plus-size jokester have yet another victory to hoot about?
Let's find out! :-)
Status: Other (Alive)
Richard is a member of the Others but was a part of the 'Hostiles' that inhabited the Island before DHARMA. He assisted with the Purge. He traveled off-Island to recruit Juliet and to provide a live video feed of her sister. He appears to be one of Ben's right-hand men but also seems to support a change in leadership. He was last seen leading a group of Others to the Temple.
Status: DHARMA/Others (Alive)
Ben was born in Oregon, and complications at his birth resulted in the death of his mother. His father joined the DHARMA Initiative, bringing Ben to the Island. Ben established contact with the ‘natives’ and carried out a purge on his own people. Since then, he has been the leader of the Others. He is very smart and very dangerous.
Tom/ “Mr. Friendly”
Status: Other (Deceased)
Tom was a member of the Others. He was first seen when the Others attacked the raft and abducted Walt. He also appeared in the jungle with a warning for the Losties, drawing a boundary line for both groups. He was among Ben's staff on Hydra Island and was sent to the Lostie camp to abduct several women. There he mt his fate when he was shot and killed by Sawyer.
Hugo “Hurley” Reyes
Status: Lostie (Alive)
Hurley was once a patient at the Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute, where he first heard The Numbers from Leonard Simms, which he used to play the lottery, winning millions. Since the crash of Flight 815, Hurley has helped around camp, had a brief relationship with Libby, ‘built’ a golf course, and tries to keep everyone in good spirits.
