Wins by Ethan Rom and the Smoke Monster finished out Round 2 for us, so here we are at the start of Round 3- the Sweet 16! That's right, only 16 characters remain in this tournament, which means we're getting closer to the end. From this point on, we'll be running only one matchup per day.
And I can assure you, it's worth it. Whether you trust me or not after I pulled a long con on you between Locke and Desmond, I tell you this with the utmost sincerity: Round 3 will be VERY interesting.
The Hat is out for blood, and blood it will get.
So let's get started with Round 3! Tonight's matchup features two characters whose paths have crossed more than once before. In a unique twist of fate, Eko has been given a rematch against the Smoke Monster.
Last time they met, Eko met his doom, but will his fortune change in the Character Cup arena? Or will Smokey pull off a repeat victory?
Vote and see.
Eko “Mr. Eko” Tunde
Status: Tailie (Deceased)
Eko was taken by rebels at an early age and grew up to be a Nigerian warlord. He used his brother's connection to the church to help him export some heroin, but his brother was killed as the plane was leaving the airport. Eko pretended to be a Catholic priest for some time before crashing on the Island. He survived with the Tailies, but was later killed by the Smoke Monster.
Status: Miscellaneous (Alive/Active)
The Smoke Monster was described by Rousseau as a security system for the Island. It seems to travel around various locations and either chases away or kills people that it deems a threat of some kind. Its composition is unknown, but it appears able to scan a person's thoughts and memories. The blast door map painted by Radzinski referred to it as 'Cerberus.'
