When in the Lighthouse, Hurley asks Jack to set the mechanism to 108. It is then revealed that each number corresponds to one of Jacob's candidates. Where else have we seen 108? The Swan Hatch, where we of course found Desmond Hume. Just an idea, the first thing that came to mind when I heard 108. Plus, Desmond has been eerily absent from this season after disappearing from flight 815 in the opening scene of episode one.
