EVERYBODY LOVES HUGO, not so much Desmond, who gets thrown down a well, sometimes fear is a good thing...Fly you fools!

Wow, I am a big fan of Hugo "Hurley" Reyes (and of course Jorge Garcia) and this episode did not disappoint.

Just wanted to get in a really crazy thought with a bit of the show that wasn't technically in the episode. But was inspired by F-Locke 'making a wish' and tossing Desmond down the well.
The promo for next week's show grabbed my attention when I started to hear that eirie song from Willy Wonka and the Chocholate Factory when he takes the Golden Ticket (like the golden tickets the Oceanic 815 survivors got?) Winners on his boat down a dark tunnel.
Wonka takes them down a deep, dark, scary tunnel

even cooler and more bizzare (but with no meaning whatsoever)
the same scene in reverse.

So just a really crazy thought from Willy Wonka and a tie in with the Dharma Initiative Test ARG. The whole point of the golden ticket contest is to find an honest person who stays honest even after mistreated by Willy. It reminded me of the Lost ARG “The Dharma Intiative testing”. The cheats were rationalized because we wanted to believe the Dharma Initiative was evil and it was ok to cheat to get the better of it. But the point of the test (never quite realized) was to find people who were willing to play it straight and lose. We find out in the end that the cheat codes were actually distributed by the head of the Dharma Initiative to find out who is truely honest.

Just wondering if that is the real end in Lost. To find those who will stick to their morality even when it means they ‘lose’.

Willy explains it all in the ending:
at 6:12 in this video Willy gives Charlie every reason to act from anger and bitterness to steal his secrets. At 8:30 Willy responds to Charlie's shining good dead in a weary world.

"So shines a good deed in a weary world."

then the final scene where he breaks through the wall of reality and the sky's the limit

and for no good reason except it's my favorite part of the movie:
Gene Wilder singing "Pure Imagination" which might just have some deeper meaning on the Island.

Just some mad, mad, madd thoughts from mr badd
whoops had another mad bad theory: Wouldn't it be cool if the ghost of Kelvin showed up to Desmond in the Well? Like Christian Shephard to Locke? Except this time of course Kelvin would be a ghost and not an evil shape changing monster.
it ain't all half-bad

p.s. leave me a comment or e-mail me at -- I guarantee you'll get a response, just can't guarantee it will make sense

p.p.s. stay away from the Evil Twin "Bad Lost Theories" Site. There is only 1 'd' in Bad, so how could it be any good?

  1. Just a note in the ending in Wonka's office. Notice everything is only 1/2 of the whole...Like Willy is missing his other half of what he really needs to run the factory and be truly alive.
