I would honestly like to continue thinking that the Mikuru in the Brigade is completely clueless as to why her superiors want her there.

But later?

Koizumi did say not to trust the older Mikuru.

And at the end, the two sides confessing they do not trust the other

It must mean something, maybe even a war between the two sides.

And Kyon having to sort it all out, or choose a side.

Actually, that has a decent possibility of happening.

This don't mean you have to like said god. You could just worship it because you are afraid. I am pretty sure at last some in the organization thinks that way. Few people would like to have their lifes depeinding of the mood of a teenager.

Haruhi's not just any teenager, she's Haruhi.

Whatever. No matter how fun she is, she still just an emotional teenager. Specially for the nameless grunts who don't actually know her.

I'm pretty sure that Mikuru is there in order to stop Haruhi from changing the past. Which is why I think that she might turn on the SOS Brigade and Kyon would have to turn to Fujiwara for help (which would be interesting, seeing as he hates the guy).

Re: Arakawa.

We only know for sure of him driving Itsuki/Kyon one time, and that is in Volume 7. Kyon speculates that it could have also been him driving when Itsuki did his infodump on the way to the Closed Space in Melancholy, but there is no confirmation, anime notwithstanding.

Arakawa is normal, since we don't know his full name (to be honest, we don't know whether the "Tamaru brothers" are even brothers, or, by extension, if that is even their real family name), but that doesn't mean he can't be a badass. I mean, after all, he is old, with a mustache, and is voiced by Batou, so how could he not be badass?

He's probably Tsuruya-san's sensei... ^_^

Actually the Tsuruya thing is an interesting thought. Not that he's her sensei, but he's connected to their family. That would explain why he drives Koizumi sometimes, as he lives nearby, and would also point to him being fairly high up in the organization, as we know the Tsuruyas are the Organization's benefactors. I don't see why people might think that he's not just because he does the driving >.>

I'm of the opinion that Mori is higher ranked than he is, but it's not out of the question that Arakawa is higher in my eyes. For all we know, he could have had a traumatic driving experience and refuses to get in anything that someone else is driving :P

My poit is I don't see why so many people thins he is the most important guy there if all he had done so far is being the buttler and the driver. Even the maid had demonstred more of herself then him.

Of course he could be important. But, right now, we only knows he plays the role of a buttler sometimes and drives once, probably twice (we only knows what Kyons say, if he believes Arakawa drives the first time, we should believe, it was also what was shown in the anime). There was also little infered about him, unlike Mori, he really just seen to be a rregular guy.

Right now, we only know that the Organization's enemies find Mori intimidating. There's nothing stating she's important, either.

Butlers are always important. They're either massive behind-the-scene support (Alfred ), or... they're killers! I.E. The butler did it! Honestly, I was looking for Haruhi to blame Arakawa for the killing mystery on the island villa. Just as a joke, of course.

...can't you respect and be devoted to something you hate and fear?

Anyway, the word don't matter, you probably know abut what I am talking. For exemple, many people "worship"(or whatever word you use) God by fear of going to Hell.

I'd imagine most "volcano god" cultures were quite terrified of what would happen if they didn't continue making sacrifices...

Yeah, pretty much this. I am sure at last some in the Organization are terrifed by having the fate of the world in some teenages hand.

Not to mention one that is obsessed with the Occult and aliens, and gets move swings by the slightest things.
