Who is number 108?
« on: February 23, 2010, 10:51:39 PM »
Hurley was trying to set the dial in the lighthouse to 108. Who was it? My guess would be Desmond....?

Would it be way off base to suggest it's Kate? We didn't see her name on the cave walls, either (like we didn't see Desmond's, as far as I remember).

I can't wait to see who it was! I hope it was Desmond though... makes a lot of sense lostlady, even though Jacob's point was to get Jack pissed off, not to really get someone to the island.

We need screen caps of the dial...now we know the significance of the numbers on the cave wall. The lighthouse may have been used as a transport to and from the island, safer than the donkey wheel.

i think desmond is a great guess. Jacob said he'd find another way to get there. Besides Ms. Hawking said the island wasn't finished with him.

I'd love it if it was Desmond. What do we think the number implies? The most important candidate? The final candidate? Something more? Gah! So many questions!

The name was Wallace and it was already crossed out.
Jacob did not care about calling anyone, he only wanted jack to see the lighthouse and get him and Hurley out of the temple

When Jacob says "they're coming" before getting kicked into the fire....was he talking about this group?  The group that was supposed to be called by the lighthouse?  ..but now doesn't matter if they are here... sorry, who was the "they" he mentioned?

But the name was not Desmond or Hume.
It is wallace. So they were not calling anyone.
Just wanted jack to see it all.

Darn, that's disappointing - I was really hoping it was Desmond, and that made sense given the number was 108 and the poor guy spent three years pushing a button every 108 minutes.  But Juggy, I would say you were right, as Jacob confirmed it - he really just wanted to bring Jack there, and that was it.

No you just made that up.
Plus the name was crossed out, so that person is dead.
They were not calling anyone.
Jacob explained all of this to Hurley.

I agree Juggy! Jacob pretty much said his intentions...

1. As you stated, we can't assume anything in the new timeline, or that it isn't a part of Desmond's name.
2. We don't know that the names being crossed out means that they are dead.

I would like to remind us all, that as viewers, we don't know anything for sure.
