Thanks to you great people on here we know Austen was listed as number 51 and not crossed off, yet when UnLocke was showing the names to James, he made a point of no reference to Kate, and there was no flashback to Jacob touching her.
UnLocke told Claire she was not one of them, but wasn't she mentioned by Ilana as one of the six?

According to Lostpedia, Kate's name was in the cave as number 51 and it was crossed out. Lostpedia references an interview with Carlton Cuse, where Mr. Cuse says as such.

I thought Locke said that she was on the wall, but not anymore.  Meaning, it was on the cave wall, but was crossed out.

Yeah, UnLocke told Claire that she wasn't on the wall at all.  He said that Kate wasn't on the wall "anymore".

Was either one of those true that we actually saw?  We saw "313-Littleton" (crossed out) on the wall in [MIB's] Cave.  We saw "51-Austen" (not crossed out) on the wheel in [Jacob's] Lighthouse.

Not that we actualy saw, but TPTB did confirm that Kate's name was on the cave wall crossed out.  We just didn't see it.

That's pretty simple I think...Locke lied...he's saying anything to get followers...he's already lied once to her about the others having Aaron, now he's lying again...

Absolutely!  Would you tell Claire, in the crazy-ass and insecure state that she's in right now, that she had been crossed off someone's list?   :D
