yeah i read recently that Hurley is the crucial character to the story. And he doesnt have bad luck, in fact its the opposite. Make sense though, considering everyone has a link to hurley in some way. hurley owned a box factory, locke worked in one. Hurley was in a metal asylum, lockes mother was in the same one. Hurley had the comic book which the kid is reading all the time, (incidently the comic book had a picture of the polar bear and hatch cavern which had some sort of alien attached to it). Really have to what the episode closely. Its suspected that what the kid thinks of comes to life. would make sense especially in the last episode..[/quote:b978bdd3b4]
Re-watch the first episode again, if you watch the part where the engine on the beach explodes carefully you can see the same “thing” that got locke cause that explosion, aparently it’s visible a few times during the series. Nanobots?
