so i was wondering about who's gonna be THE candidate. will they be selected, or will they start dying soon. or can you cease to be a candidate without dying? f so, how? or has it already been decided, and that person is walking around as the new jacob and doesnt even know it? who out of the remaining candidates is likely to accept the job? i would say its between hurley and jack, as sun and jin have a baby at home, sawyer seems hell bent on leaving, locke is dead(?), and as for sayid, this may be controversial but i think he could still be in the running. jacob doesnt like to get involved, and hasnt done much since dying; he got hurley and jack the hell away from the temple, but apart from that the only other thing he's done is save sayid. is that important?
