A way to get Sun on the boat?

I was watching the season finale with my mother this weekend, and as usually happens when you watch LOST again (even if it’s for the umpteenth time) is that you still get new insights. One that stuck out to me this time is that when Sayid has the plan to sail to the other side of the island and needs someone to help him sail there (since he doesn’t know how to sail), he asks Desmond, who conveniently declines and asks him to look elsewhere.

Sayid then asks Jin, who says he will not leave his wife while she is pregnant. Sun tells him that he won’t–because she is going with them. I can somewhat understand this (they were both friends with Michael, and they had many episodes ago had an argument over Jin leaving her and doing his own thing)… but at the same time, it seems a little out of character for Jin, as protective as he was, to be ok with his pregnant wife coming with him in an encounter which could well turn into a violent confrontation.

I was curious if maybe this was a plot device to get this pregnant woman to that side of the island… in other words, if the writers were trying to place Sun there for a reason. Distance from the electromagnetism? Proximity to the Others, where they would be at risk for getting captured (especialy interesting if they already knew she was pregnant)? Just a few random thoughts. It’s going to be a long summer before we get real answers, I think.

    Do you think Sun and Jin are planning to try to sail away from the island together?

    It’s possible, but in the finale…when the loud sound a bright light happened…they were back on the boat WITH Sayid. They had their chance to run with the boat when Sayid was checking out the Other’s fake camp.

    Killer: Yeah, I wondered about that before, but in another conversation… I said that it may be part conspiracy, but part of it may just be the repetition of phrases on the show to show a sense of karma, events and people interconnected. In fact, I think I may write an article about some of these repeated phrases soon.

    froggirl: I never really got that impression myself. I think they all sort of think it is futile after the story Desmond gave about trying and sailing in circles (seems to be a property of the island).
