Congratulations to John Locke! He handily won his matchup against Kate, and, in doing so, has ensured that the remainder of the Character Cup will be an all-men affair. That's right- as hard as it may be to believe, no women have advanced to Round 4. While Locke didn't set any margin records, I do believe that last night's matchup brought in the highest number of votes so far in the Cup. Perhaps the vote count will continue to grow through the next round?
But before we can get to Round 4, there are still two matchups that must be determined. Tonight's matchup is one that is very exciting, but difficult to predict. While it may seem an easy decision, given the leanings of the more vocal visitors to this site, both characters tonight have their fair share of committed supporters and rabid detractors.
It's a tale of two leaders, as Jack Shephard takes on Benjamin Linus for a spot in Round 4.
Who will you pick?
Status: Lostie (Alive)
Jack Shephard was once a talented spinal surgeon at St. Sebastian Hospital in LA. He was married for a time but his wife left him. He also had a very complicated relationship with his father. After the crash of Flight 815, Jack emerged as the leader of the survivors and continues to do what he can to get them rescued.
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.
