[Hurley has just helped Richard make peace with his long deceased wife]
Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: She kinda said something else. Something you have to do.
Richard Alpert: What?
Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: She said you have to stop The Man in Black. You have to stop him from leaving the Island. And she said that if you don't... we'll all go to hell.

It was intense, intriguing and highly satisfying
28 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the first Episode review I'm doing because I really think that This was the best LOST episode so far!! We were questioning ourselves About pretty much everything but THIS! No one saw it coming! That episode revealed a lot of thing for 50 min's , and those min's each one of them were really entertaining , gripping and really , really satisfying! From the beginning I knew something was not okay with that man ''Not Getting Old'' trough time and believe me this episode reveal everything on him on his past and on the importance of his role in the Island! I loved the way the writer's putted the ''Spanish'' connection to it! And they said that the fact was HELL!! It just excited the audience more and more… So there is only few episodes' left until THE very END! And believe me I am really eager to see what is going to happen next!
