I always had speculation that the writers had no idea what they were talking about but i been watching old episodes from the first season and whenever the 'candidates' talk about people in their camp they always call them others, watch white rabbit and you will see kate sayid and locke talking about the others, sayid kate and sawyer and also jack and locke talking baout the others, so maybe they did know where they were going because they are suppossed to be there and the other people in the camp are expendable, what do you think?
