The point here is cd, from the perspective of the available evidence, is that ONLY Polly and Annie said themselves that they were actively soliciting. No such evidence exists from any other Canonical, unless you give credence to Hutchinson. We don't know why Liz was there, nor do we know why Kate didn't go seek out John, in the opposite direction from that which she took.
