I don’t have many thoughts about tonight’s episode of Lost, Everybody Hates Hugo, except for the fact that the producers really have set Hurley up as the luckiest man on the island. Michael being the unluckiest.
Here are my talking points:
- What is the device inside the hatch?
Doomsday device? Nuclear generator? Time machine?
- 23 tail survivors have dwindled to, what, 8?
There are the numbers again. Were they all killed by the “others” or the sickness or some combination of both?
- Rose’s husband, Bernard, is indeed alive.
I think fans of the first season saw this one coming.
- Hurley’s dream/nightmare involved Jin speaking Enlish/Hurley speaking Korean.
Not exactly a revelation if you saw last week’s script page on oceanicflight815.com. The bigger question is who was the dude in the chicken suit?
- Will there be an island romance (one that is consumated physically)?
Bernard and Rose reuniting would mean yes, but I’m talking about Jack/Kate, Sawyer/Ana Lucia, Sayid/Shannon or some other combination.
- Who provides the voiceover for the “Previously on Lost …” bits?
My ears say J.K. Simmons, which would make 3 actors who starred in HBO’s Oz (Harold Perrineau Jr. and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje being the other 2).
That’s all for this week. I think next week will be notably more somber than tonight’s fireside beach feast.
UPDATE: I’m selling Dharma Initiative T-Shirts!
UPDATE II: Lurker in the comments appears to be correct, the Chicken Suit was worn by the gas station attendant. See TV Squad’s vid-cap image.
I don’t think Hurley’s boss was the same guy as Locke’s boss, but I’m waiting to review the show again via TiVo. Someone named “Randy” did make an appearance on last night’s episode, though. So says IMDB.
UPDATE III: After reviewing the episode on TiVo, Lurker is right. The man from Hurley’s nightmare wearing the Chicken suit is the gas station attendant.
Other commenters are correct in the assumption that Hurley’s boss from the Chicken Shack is the Randy who becomes Locke’s boss. Which makes sense since Hurley owns a box company as part of his investment portfolio after winning the lottery.
My next question would be what happens to Hurley’s friends Johnny and Starla?
