OBS RECAP & REVIEW: LOST S6 EPISODE 12 ‘EVERYBODY LOVES HUGO’
Written by OBS Staff Member Rose
If anyone thought Lost would revert back to its old ways with for-no-apparent-reason-sideways-flashes after Desmond had his day in the sun last episode, they were quite wrong
This week Hugo Reyes was the focal point of the show, as was the fact that for the first time, sideways world wasn’t just a deeper look into the characters, it was an integral part of…well…everything.
Sideways world: Hugo Reyes, loved by all. Mr. Cluck’s Franchise owner, humanitarian, the even more likable Bill Gates of chicken. After accepting an award for achievement from Pierre Chang at a gala dinner. (If you recall, Pierre Chang didn’t care much for Hugo in the real time line).
It seems his mother doesn’t think everyone loves him and that he needs a female in his life so she sets him up on a blind date. However, his blind date doesn’t show up. Poor Hugo.
Instead, long lost Libby takes a seat across from him at the restaurant and tells him she knows him from another lifetime. Her doctor interrupts her story and it is revealed she is on a day pass from the loony bin.
Libby’s visit put Hugo in a deep depression and as he drowns his greasy sorrows in a super-sized bucket of chicken at one of his stores, dashing Desmond appears. And we do mean dashing. He’s looking pretty hot in his suit and kempt hair. Desmond asks about Hugo’s woes and after explaining, Desmond says he should reach out to Libby and find out how she knows him.
Hugo takes his advice and visits Libby at the Mental Facility. Before he sees her, he chats with the doctor in his office and seen on his office wall, is a huge photographic picture of an island.
In meeting with Libby, she reveals she feels as if they are soul mates and this is what has brought her voluntarily to the mental facility. She thinks she is certifiable and checked herself in.
Even though he still hasn’t been hit by the remembrance wave, as Desmond, Charlie and Daniel Faraday had, he still asks Libby out for a date.
As they sit on the beach, Libby questions why he is interested in her and to prove his point he leans in to kiss her and BAM, the rush of remembrance comes. All the while, Desmond is sitting in his car watching them and smiling.
