Lost writers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis who wrote this week’s upcoming Hurley centric Lost episode “Tricia Tanaka is Dead” recently shared some thoughts with SciFi 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.
The two Lost writers have become quite good at telling stories about Hurley:
“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.”
Both “Dave” and “Everybode Hates Hugo” were really good Lost episodes, so I’m very much looking forward to see how Hurley’s story continues.
