Speaking to dead people
« on: February 07, 2008, 11:27:33 PM »
The new guy who can speak to dead people gives a whole new meaning for Charlie showing up at Hurley's mental hospital ( "I am dead, but I'm also here"). Maybe Hurley has the same ability, but is unaware?
So dead people are all around available for a chat???!!!

So was the dead guy just waiting to be told to move on. He gets the money and then simply says you can go. Seemed pretty simple.

Haven't you ever seen Ghostbusters?  He was going to suck him up into one of those scary box thingies.  lol.  I'm completely kidding.

He almost seemed like a nice guy. lol

I think the dustbuster was just a decoy, make it look like he had tools, the noise covers up what he is saying.

I thought it looked like the Ghostbusters packs they carried. I agree that it was just a prop.

I think he is kind of like John Edward, except he can really talk to dead people.
I don't get why he didn't take the drugs and flush them down the toliet. I wouldn't touch them and put them back.

I was confused about that whole flashback myself... Obviously he does has some sort of ability and I'm gonna assume the vacuum was a prop or... something. I think that was the weirdest flashback the entire episode.  :-\

I thought he was like Wolf in Pulp Fiction at first and we were gonna see her son's dead body and he was going to "clean up" the mess.  So maybe the smoke monster is a collection of lost souls and Jacob, Yemi, Christian, and all of them are ghosts who are amplified by phenomena on the island.

Or like Michael J Fox's character in The Frighteners -- real abilities but misuses them for money.

Some ghost hunters use items which make 'white noise'. Usually for catching EVP's (Electric Voice Phenomenon).  Maybe he was using the sound of the vacuum cleaner for his white noise.

the big difference i notice in the two is that hurley "sees" the dead people while miles just "hears" them.  or so it seems right now.
