I’ve heard a lot of speculation that the List made by Miss Klugh at the end was of the “Good” ones out of the group. This is not a bad guess, I think, given that other lists the Others had made in previous episodes did seem to be of the “Good” people (at least as far as they were concerned)… Goodwin, for example, tells Ana-Lucia that Nathan was left off (the first list that was found, after Ana killed the Other woman on the beach) for that reason in “The Other 48 Days”: “He was not a good person”. In “Maternity Leave”, Tom (“Mr. Friendly”) chastizes Ethan for not completing another list before kidnapping Claire, though he doesn’t specifically say what this list is for, this time.
Miss Klugh’s third list, as we know, includes:
If this is a list of the “Good ones”, then why isn’t Locke on it, though? From Fake Henry’s own words in “Two for the Road” (after Locke asks why he didn’t just kill him when he was trapped under the blast door, and he had the chance):
“Because you’re one of the good ones, John.”
So why would they leave off Locke? Or is there another purpose for this List?
Why would they go through the trouble of kidnapping Hurley, when they would just set him free as the “messenger boy”? And if those are the survivors they wanted, why not just have kidnapped them when Tom had them at gunpoint and disarmed, in the scene at “the line” in “The Hunting Party”?
