Hurly and Vincent the dog could be key parts of the " Loop ", he spoke of to Jack in an earlier episode. As perhaps the most emotional and yet quite ingenious charachter on the island, Hurley could very well be playing possum, laying traps and be way smarter than given credit for. Their past is in the future, their present is in the past...is time running out or are they lost in time? Could they be in trouble with a group of renegade Time Police from far in the future or is the island one big tropical time machine? Just for fun, what if...? Season Six---Hurley reveals that he and his bionic dog Vincent are owners of the island, a vast super-computer capable of creating holographic imagery,embark upon time-travel and flying like an " Oceanic " airplane.
