A few bits of background:
1.) S.A.R.A.H., Jack's smart house, has an online presence in the form of a Twitter account. If you ask her questions, sometimes she answers. She is voiced by the show's writers and creative staff.
2.) Not only does she voice her opinions, she sometimes shares spoilers. Sometimes subtle, sometimes blatant, if you look careful, you can find tidbits. (Twitter limits posts to 140 characters)
3.) S.A.R.A.H. does not respond to all questions or responses.
@_S_A_R_A_H_ How very interesting. Any other out-of-the-ordinary physiological readings we should know about? 12:36 PM August 16, 2008 from web in reply to _S_A_R_A_H_

Ok, so if she's spoiling us for real, then it breaks down like this-- we have 4 major females right now, 3 of them full time cast. Allison, Zoe, Jo and Thorne. Thorne is not even worth speculating on - a.) too old. b.) no 'significant other'. c.) busy with other 'issues'. d.) not a long term character (as far as we know).
Allison: Top suspect. She's back with Nathan, and I doubt she's waiting until the 2nd marriage ceremony to get back into bed with Nathan considering their behavior. She already has one child, so it's not that much of a stretch for her to have a 2nd. And seriously? Who can blame her for getting him on his back right away? He's completely in love with her and absofuckinglutely GORGEOUS. And no reason to wait this time.
Jo: Although they haven't flat out said it, she and Zane seem very happy together and not very platonic. I suspect they've been knocking boots for quite a while now. Again, who can blame her? *look* at him. Nathan, Carter and Zane are SO the town hotties.
Zoe: Honestly? I *really* don't want it to be her. The whole teenage pregnancy thing is just... No. Yes, she has a boyfriend, but she's cleaned her life up a lot and grown up.
There is always the possibility this might be a forced storyline due to someone (ie Salli or Erica) getting pregnant in real life. If that's the case, then congrats to them! (But come on writers, did we really have to work it in rather than leave it out? Is the timing going to be specific to the back 13? Neither of them is showing yet, but filming for most of this was a bit ago, and they won't start on the back 13 for a bit still.)
This could also be a red herring (although they've yet to put those out as actual spoilers) or as part of an alternate timeline, time loop, dream sequence or something else.
If it's for real and *not* because of someone's RL pregnancy that they couldn't ignore, I can't help but think they've gone a little *too* soap opera on us. :-/
I ask you, FList, what do you think? Please discuss.
