Is the Island a Purgatory? Or Not?
Chris Seay weighs in on the meaning of Tuesday's LOST episode, "Everybody Loves Hugo"
The Gospel According to Lost, chimes in on the developments in Tuesday's episode of LOST, "Everybody Loves Hugo." (SPOILERS AHEAD) Among Seay's observations: "It's great to know what all these whispers [on the island] have been, and to see Hurley's interactions with Michael. But the inference that Michael is stuck there in a purgatory kind of sense is at least a disappointment." Seay also notes that Desmond's importance "can't be underestimated," and that he still seems to be sort of a messianic figure, with his "ability to withstand this evil magnetic energy without being harmed." And Seay notes how he was "stunned" how the episode ended.
