Lost Season Six: Everybody Loves Hugo

What I Liked:

  • I like the new in-charge, slightly badass island Hurley even though he’s winging it as much as jack had been in the past
  • Libby! This is the first flash-sideway that made me hope that at the end of everything LA X doesn’t get wiped out so that hurley will finally get his chance with Libby.  It sucked when she was killed off so early so I’m glad we got to see the date that never was
  • Ilana got Arnzted! Maybe the reason Jacob was never proactive is because he’s not very good at it.  Who casually drops a bag of dynamite? Worst guardian EVER!
  • Team notLocke and Team Jacob are together finally so we can finally get moving to the end game
  • There was something hilarious about Desmond running down Locke in LA X

What I Didn’t Like:

  • The explanation for the Whispers?  Eh.  I think it should have remained an unexplained mystery if that was the explanation.  It seems tacked on like, “Let’s give them something…anything”
  • Jack’s “I’m just along for the ride” attitude.
  • Again, I wish we could have gotten to the Desmond-aware-in-LA X sooner because it feels like we’re going to be rushing in the next few episodes

Lines of the Night:

  • “You need a woman in your life, especially one who has not nursed you.” – LA X Carmen Reyes to Hurley
  • “Well, how did you know my name?”
    “Well, if I tell you, you’re going to think I’m crazy.”
    “No I won’t.”
    “Hugo, do you believe that two people can be connected, like soul mates?”
    “I guess.”
    “You don’t remember me, do you?”
    “Should I?”  – LA X Hurley and Libby
  • “You were only able to come back to this island because you all did it together. If we’re going to get on that plane and leave, it has to happen the same way. We’re waiting for your friends to get here, Kate. Hugo, Sun, Jack. And that’s the only way we’re ever getting off this God-forsaken rock.”
    “Well, I don’t see that happening”
    “Well let’s just hope you’re wrong” – notLocke and Kate
  • “We get more dynamite, otherwise she died for nothing.”
    “Maybe she died to tell us to stay the hell away from dynamite” – Richard and Jack
  • “No, this one actually lives in the looney bin. I mean, I saw the van. She’s full on nuts. I mean, she started sane, but then she told me that we already knew each other, and that, I’d remember.”
    “Tell me something, did you believe her when she said she knew you?”
    “Yeah, kind of.”
    “Well I say, go with your gut. You know, maybe you should try to find out where she thinks she knew you from before you give up on her.” – LA X Hurley and Desmond
  • “Kind of makes you think, doesn’t it?”
    “What’s that?”
    “Ilana. There she was hand picked by Jacob, trained to come and protect you candidates. No sooner does she tell you who you are, then she blows up. The island was done with her. Makes me wonder what’s going to happen when it’s done with us.” – Ben and Jack
  • “A warning might have been nice, there, Hugo.”
    “I did say run.”
    “Why’d you do that?”
    “Michael told me to.”
    “Who?”
    “Michael. He’s one of the people who come back and yell at me after they die. He told me I had to stop everyone from blowing up the plane, so, no more dynamite, no more blowing up.”
    “That happen a lot? Dead people yelling at you?”
    “It happens enough.”
    “And you just listen to whatever they say?”
    “Dead people are more reliable than alive people.” – Miles and Hurley
  • “A few days ago I was watching TV and one of your commercials came on, and the moment that I saw you, it was like I was hit over the head. All these memories came washing back of my life, only, it was another life.”
    “What kind of memories?”
    “There was a plane crash. And I was on an island.”
    “And I was there?”
    “I think so. We knew each other. Liked each other. And then when I got here, it was almost like I’d been here before. And, for some reason, Hugo, I have a memory of you being here too.” – LA X Libby and Hurley
  • “It’s okay. It’s okay. I’m crazy.”
    “Yeah, probably, but we’ve all got something, right? I mean, it takes a lot of guts to go up to a total stranger and tell him you know them from some bizarro alternate universe. I’m scared just saying hi to a girl.”  – LA X Libby and Hurley
  • “I don’t have to prove anything to you, Richard. You either come with me or you can keep trying to blow stuff up. Your call, dude.” – Hurley to Richard
  • “So what do you think we should say to Locke when we get there? I mean, how do you break the ice with the smoke monster?” – Hurley to Jack
  • “Ever since Juliet  died, since I got her killed, all I’ve wanted was to fix it. But I can’t. I can’t ever fix it. You have no idea how hard it is for me to sit back and listen to other people tell me what I should do, but maybe that’s the point. Maybe I’m supposed to let go.”
    “Unless you letting go gets us killed. Going to see Locke was my idea, not Jacob’s.”
    “Hurley, you asked me to trust you. This is me trusting you.”  – Jack and Hurley
  • “You’re stuck on the island, aren’t you?”
    “Because of what I did.”
    “And, there are others out here like you, aren’t there? That’s what the whispers are?”
    “Yeah, we’re the ones that can’t move on.” – Hurley and Ghost Michael
  • “Have you been here before?”
    “No, it’s just being here with you feels so familiar. It’s like a date we’ve never had. Wow, I sound completely insane, don’t I?” – LA X Hurley and Libby
  • “Whoa, dude. I think I’m remembering stuff.”
    “You are? You mean, I’m not crazy?”
    “No, I don’t think you are.” – LA X Hurley and Libby
  • “The reason I wanted you to see this, Desmond, is because Charles Widmore is not interested in answers, he’s only interested in power. And he brought you back to this island so that you could help him find what he’s looking for. After all, this isn’t the only well.”
    “And that’s the reason you wanted me to see this?”
    “Why aren’t you afraid?”
    “Excuse me?”
    “You’re out here in the middle of the jungle with me. Not a person on earth even knows you’re here. Why aren’t you afraid?”
    “What is the point in being afraid?” – notLocke and Desmond before notLocke pushed Desmond into the well

Questions:

  • How did Hurley get THAT far ahead of Richard that he was able to blow up all the dynamite and have enough time to escape the blast radius?
  • What’s LA X Desmond’s plan here?  Is he just going to make people realize that everything isn’t right and help them find love like some bizarro universe Ricardo Montalban?
  • Why did LA X Desmond run Locke over?  Was it to bring him close to death so he’d get an island flash or because notLocke was a dick to him on the island?
  • Who is the creepy kid that Locke and Desmond saw in the woods? He’s different from the kid that Sawyer and notLocke saw in “The Substitute”
  • Why did notLocke push Desmond down the well?
  • What other ghosts on the island can’t “move on”?
  • If the Whispers are souls who can’t move on and only Hurley can talk to the dead, why can everyone hear the Whispers or is Hurley the only on who can really hear them?

One thought on “Lost Season Six: Everybody Loves Hugo

  1. Nice review.

    I’m starting to think that maybe Desmond is servin as a constant for the island. And maybe Desmond is reuniting other people with their constants.

    He did convince Hugo’s to follow-up with Libby. And Libby was Hugo’s constant. Once they kissed, he saw a flash of his life on the island.

    As for Locke, he doesn’t have an island love as his constant but he does have the initial shock of getting up from the plane crash and being able to walk. So I *think* that maybe Desmond hit Locke so he will see a flash of himself walking on the island. That is just a theory.

    Although i do belive that Desmond is navigating both realities at the same time, so he could have been really pissed that Locke through him in that well, but I feel like there has to be more to the story.
