Congratulations to John Locke. As many expected he would, Locke has earned a spot in the Character Cup Finals. Credit must be given, however, to Jack and his devoted fans. The matchup was kept interesting by some of the most irregular voting patterns in the entire Cup. Jack had been down by as much as 36%-64%, but two surges in votes brought him up to an alarmingly close 45%-55%. In the final hours though, Jack slipped back a notch, and the votes ended 44%-56%.
Locke ended up with 576 more votes than Jack, a typically insurmountable lead. But, this matchup showed that voting habits can change. The number of votes also exploded and nearly crossed the 5,000 mark. Perhaps today's will cross that line.
As with yesterday, today's matchup needs little introduction: DESMOND vs. SAWYER
These two characters have had very limited interaction, as far as we can tell from watching the episodes. There doesn't appear to be any conflict between the two either, making this matchup a simple matter of which one is more popular.
Will it be the Scotsman or the Con Man?
Vote, discuss, and remember- fight nice! :-)
Status: Miscellaneous (Alive)
Desmond has been a set designer, a monk, a soldier and a round-the-world race entrant. This last activity resulted in Desmond crashing his boat on the Island. There he was rescued by Kelvin and brought to the Hatch, where he pushed the Button for three years until Flight 815 crashed. Since activating the failsafe, Desmond seems to have precognitive abilities. His girlfriend Penny continues to search for him.
James “Sawyer” Ford
Status: Lostie (Alive)
James Ford's parents were a victim of a con man and lost all their money. His father killed his mother and himself in front of James. As an adult, James adopted the moniker 'Sawyer' and became a con man himself as he searched for the real Sawyer. Since the crash of Flight 815, Sawyer has been a packrat, an antagonist, and even somewhat of a leader to the Losties.
