Wait. . . there was an answer? I must've missed it!
That dude guy is the smoke thing. That's about the only answer I came up with.
Are you saying that I should begin to watch Lost even if I haven't been following it. I think that I will be confused but because everyone else is confused I will be equal with everyone adn maybe even understand it better.
I'm saying you should start from episode 1 and watch it all. Worth the three weeks it'll take to do it
"That dude guy is the smoke thing" was an answer I guess, but not to a question that had previously been queried.
