Hurley's cursed numbers (4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42) are all retired Yankee baseball players, with the exception of 42, which was worn by Jackie Robinson and later retired throughout Major League Baseball. Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are big baseball fans, and have made references to baseball numerous times in the show. See more »

Cursed Numbers
13 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While Michael Dawson, Jin Kwon and Sawyer are rebuilding the raft burned in the last episode, Hugo "Hurley" Reyes sees the numbers in the maps stolen by Sayid Jarrah and decides hike alone and meet Danielle Rousseau. He recalls when he won millions of dollars in the lottery and had a jinx with a tremendous bad luck.

"Numbers" is a very intriguing episode of "Lost" with a mysterious series of numbers affecting the life of Hurley and being found in different places in the island. This episode raises more questions than answers. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Numbers"

Note: On 22 March 2013, I saw this episode again.
