Those darn numbers gave Hurley so much grief over the last five seasons. All that bad luck.
Which is kinda weird, considering using them made him a millionaire. What if he hadn’t stopped using them? Would he have continued to have good luck?
What if that’s the real curse of the numbers? Using them meant that you HAD to continue to use them, or bad things would happen.
Think about that for a minute. If they numbers were “charmed” in some way, that would explain why those numbers had to be typed in all the time. It also parallels what happened when they stopped using the numbers.
Just a thought.
