sheesh, you ask for answers, then refuse to accept them when they are given. you people...
Who's refusing to accept anything? I'm just saying that it is still possible that it's not MiB who is taking the form of other people. I worded my post very carefully and said THE IDEA (as opposed to THE FACT) and WOULD (as opposed to DOES). I suggest you pay just a little more attention while reading, before you start making assumptions and offering criticism.
I am looking at that, and I am quite aware of what were the intentions of both Alex and Isabella, I was just saying that Isabella that Hurley spoke to was a different one than the one who spoke to Richard.
