LostLost follows the plane crash survivors lives on a strange mystical island, after a commercial passenger plane traveling between Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, United States crashes in the ocean of the South Pacific. Every episode usually features a main storyline on the island, followed by a secondary storyline from another time in a character's life.
He did say"8". But I don't think"8"were brought back. I think that's what he was saying about Kate taking care of the 8 of us. Must mean that only 6 or Oceanic 6 were brought back and something actually happens to two of them. Plus, what's Lost without a mention of one of the"numbers"anyway.
The Oceanic 6 apparently all came up with a story about what actually happened on the island. Jack asked Hurley if he was going to tell the truth about what happened in a previous episode. This episode only supports that theory. Odds are we won't find out what really happened until the last few shows where they finally start answering all the questions.But nothing on that show is ever a slip. So obviously part of the story is that 8 people survived, but 2 of them died on the island.
