ok, please dont give me a 'screw damon and carlton for not explaning anything' type of response. i am just very confused about 2 main things in lost. honestly, i know all the haters of the finale are being very persistent in believing there are no answers, but ive had some long ass discussions with my friends and on other forums, and we have found answers (even though they are vague and mostly theories) but at least explanations to everything and i feel like, for the first time, njot being spoon fed the exact explanation was pretty cool. anyway, my questions
first off...the numbers....i remember thinking they were explained, as the numbers of the candidates but my frend pointed this out to me. everyone on the plane was a candidate. 108 to be exact. and these numbers were affecting hurley way before any of them reached the island, so y do the specific numbers of the 6 surviving candidates have to be important. because back then, im sure these 6 werent picked over everyone else...otherwise whats the point in bringing 102 other people to the island.
also, isabelle in ab aeterno....how did smokey take her form? her body wasnt on the island
