Like the other poster mentioned, being invited to a second interview only means that you made it to the second round. For all you know, 15 other people also have a second interview.

If you do end up getting the job, I guarantee you the weirdness has just started. A lot of interviews offer important insight to what working for that company will be like.

As I said to the other poster, there were only 4 applicants to begin with.

It might be a compatibility test. Maybe they sent in the most difficult person to work with and who they hire is going to have more to do with who can get along with that guy. From your resume, they already know what you've done and what you claim to have experience with. Now, they just need to know if you'll fit on their team.
