A "Hurley-centric" episode.
21 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love LOST; It is enigmatic, yet familiar. Foreign, yet human. Dramatic & comedic. "One side is light and the other dark."

In flashback, "character-centric" episodes we get a chance to explore further into the mystery that is the particular character. For the episode entitled Dave we learn further about Hugo "Hurley" Reyes. To say this episode is a sequel to any of the previous LOST episodes…. I would think more about the story & not the sequence in which it falls; Dave is not a sequel to Lockdown but a sequel to season one's Hurley-centric Numbers.

Dave answers the questions: "Why was Hurley in a mental institution?" & "Why does Hurley fear change?"

Dave also allows the budding relationship between Hurley & Libby a little air time. It's a good episode for those who are fans of Hurley.
