So anyone really can be a candidate then. So if Jack should die anyone can step up.

I'm still torn between reading the way this is ending in one of two ways:

1) TPTB fully intend for the message of the show to be a putdown of man's superstitions -- every time people seem to think some sign, number, name scratched out in chalk on a cave wall, has some big meaning; they shoot it down with "it's just chalk on a wall; you can still have the job if you want it"

or

2) TPTB are too lazy (or unable) to come up with a master plan ending for this story that does have meaning connecting all the mysteries they created and is fully consistent from top to bottom -- so they just cast off all the loose ends as "that didn't really mean anything after all".

------

I want it at least to be the first one, but I fear that it is really the second one.
