Ilana and 'the candidates'

In The Incident (Part 1) (I think) Jacob gives a hospitalised Ilana a list with 6 names. He tells her that these people are the remaining candidates and she must protect them.

However in Dead is Dead Ilana is on the island, and tells Bram that Lapidus should be spared as he 'might be a candidate'. Should she not know at this point who was/wasn't a candidate!? I might have missed something here as I am relying on my decaying memory, so would be grateful if anybody can shed any more light on this?
