The Oceanic Six

Been musing over the possibilities of who the other three members of the Oceanic Six are. We know that Jack, Kate and Hurley are three. And the last time six survivors were separated from the rest was at the end of season two when Michael lured some of his fellow survivors into The Others trap so that he could rescue Walt.

That would be: Jack, Kate, Hurley, Sawyer, Michael and Walt. Of course, Michael and Walt ostensibly made it off the island--or did they? The obituary for the man in the coffin at the end of season three said he was from New York and that he was survived by a teenage son. Michael is from New York and Walt would be a teenager in the flash forward/present day. It also makes sense that Kate wouldn't want to attend the funeral of the man who had betrayed them.

Of course, that would gobsmack my theory that Sawyer's character arc is ended and he's ripe to be killed off this season. But then again, Sawyer could be the "he" Kate refers to when she tells Jack she has to get home because "he" will be wondering where she is. I've also heard rumor that Sun and Jin make it off the island, but I think my hypothesis is better.

Just a theory...
