Dear Joey: How will Ben and Jack be able to get Hurley back on the island now that he’s in jail? Kevin
I thought about this too. Quick re-cap: Hurley surrendered himself to the police ’cause he was scared of Ben and didn’t trust him about going back to the island; he probably thought Ben was recruiting him for some Celebrity Oceanic 6 Biggest Loser or something. (Sorry Hugo).
I think there are two possible scenarios:
One: Ben goes in there like Batman with that little baton of his and fucks that place up, including Hurley, and they force him to go back to the island. Now I don’t know if this violates some cosmic rule that says you have to go of your own free will, so I am not sure. He could also conjure that smoke monster and shit would get hella live.
Two: All of Hurley’s dead friends get together for a charity fund raiser and bail him out.
This was one of the bigger questions for me in this season premiere. There’s a 70-hour window for them to get back on the island and being charged with triple homicide kind of puts a kink in the chain. It’ll be interesting to see how many explosions they use next week in order to remedy this.
