Well, I was watching the finale yet again, and I was wondering about this.  It seemed a little out of character for Jin, previously so protective, to be ok with Sun, now pregnant, going with him on a boat.  I mean, I realize the couple had just recently "had it out" about Jin's controlling nature, and he had become more understanding of her will... but they were in for a possibly a dangerous mission where they might encounter the Others.  I just thought it was a "conventient" plotline to have Desmond turn down Sayid's request to help him sail, and then Jin just happens to be the only one he can ask--was it a way for the writers to get Sun on this boat?

In other words, have her written in that way so that the only pregnant woman on the island is somewhere "needed" for the plot.  I was thinking either distance from the electromagnetism, or maybe proximity, to be captured by Others?

Or maybe it is nothing at all.  :) 
Pandora:
That's a great idea I hadn't considered, but it makes just as much sense as others' ideas, if not more.

Jin is still being protective but more loving,wants her near him can't speak Ebglish to help Sayid with boat,gets her off island away from directcontact with magentic field but she stilll was affected by it.
AND gives the actors much needed screen time as a lot were complaining they were not being used enough this past season.

GJ:
Great point... I wonder if their story will really pan out in S3?  I hope so.  I really like both Jin and Sun's characters, but there's so much more to be developed with Sun's dad....

For example, what about the watch Jin was supposed to take to LA?  He gave it to Michael--wonder if we'll see a story about Michael with the watch in LA in later seasons?
hmmmm

cheers

He was delivering a message with the watch. He had to be there so the person understood the meaning of the watch. ALso the writers needed a reason to put him on the plane!

There was some speculation that perhaps there was something in the watch that helped bring the plane down?  Dunno, but it was worth a thought.
