Episode: (218) Dave
Why it’s important: Hurley starts seeing Dave on the island and we are given reason to believe that the whole show is inside of Hurley’s head.
Unanswered questions: Why was Libby in the mental institute with Hurley? Last yeah Damon and Carlton told Sky 1 in an interview that “Libby is also one of those things where we feel like, that story’s told–it’s done. We’ve told as much about Libby as we wanna tell….For us, Libby’s story is done.” SPOILER ALERT! At the TCA press tour earlier this month Damon and Carlton announced the return of Libby and Michael. So they may have changed their mind and give us the Libby backstory.
