LOST Spoilers - DarkUFO

Some snippets from SCIFI.COM about Hurley and Locke.

The upcoming Feb. 28 episode of ABC's Lost will revisit the backstory of Hurley, played by Jorge Garcia, co-executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis told SCI FI Wire. "What's exciting about the next one is it's really in the tradition of some Hurley episodes, like 'Everybody Hates Hugo,'" said Kitsis, who co-wrote the episode with Horowitz. "It's kind of a lighter episode. It's emotional, but what also, I think, people will really be excited about is we're back on the beach. You'll definitely get another piece of Hurley backstory."

"And I would say, make sure you watch 'til the very last second," Horowitz added.

As Lost fans know, Hugo "Hurley" Reyes is a reluctant lottery-winning millionaire who spent time in a mental institution and believes his special lottery winning numbers are cursed.

"Adam and I are lucky enough that this is our third Hurley story," Kitsis said. He and Horowitz also wrote 'Dave' and 'Everybody Hates Hugo.' They say that they've become the Hurley specialists on the show.

"We fell in love with him, and we tell everyone to back off," Horowitz said with a laugh. "We love writing for Hurley. ... It's a challenge coming up with any story, but the truth is, actually, the story this week was something that was conceived a really long time ago. So it was one of those stories we've been waiting to tell."

The writers added that there is more story coming for Locke, the troubled character played by Terry O'Quinn, who was in a wheelchair when he crashed onto the series' mysterious island. Why? "I don't want to give away anything, and I can't give away anything," Horowitz said with a laugh. "I value my job. But I will say that that episode, it's been a long time coming. It will create some new story paths for the audience to be interested in Locke. And we fully hope the question in everyone's head is answered, and they're all very happy with the answer and excited by it. But we're excited, because it has opened up some new things with that character that we hope you guys will like."

Kitsis and Horowitz confirmed that the rest of the season will also explore the backstories of Claire (Emilie de Ravin), Sayid (Naveen Andrews) and two characters new to this season, Paulo (Rodrigo Santoro) and Nikki (Kiele Sanchez). Lost airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Wednesdays
