Besides the cameo by Spider-man creator Stan Lee as a bus driver, the latest episode of Heroes had a few funny nods to Lost that I just couldn’t ignore.
First, when Mohinder and Sylar were entering the motel, it was briefly visible that Mohinder was staying in room 23. 23 being one of Hurley’s numbers and according to some, the most important number in the cursed series.
Later in the episode, Simone confronts Nathan and asks him to go public with the powers he and Peter have mysteriously gained. Nathan’s reply is the last in a line of friendly nods toward Lost:
Nathan: If people knew what we were capable of, they would drop a collective brick.
Simone: Do you think they would burn you at the stake?
Nathan: Yeah, pretty much. Because that’s what I would do. I’d round us all up, stick us in a lab, or on some island in the middle of the ocean.
Should we make it a regular feature to spot connections between Lost and Heroes? Would anyone be interested in a separate site focusing on Heroes?
