Even if you are obsessed with Lost
, you may not instantly recognize the name Randy Nations, though you certainly know the character. He was John Locke's disapproving boss at the box factory. Next we saw him as the manager of the Mr. Clucks Hurley worked at. Of course, that is in reverse chronology, as we all know Hurley used his lottery winnings to buy a box company, and subsequently must have given his old fast food boss a new job working for him.
Right now, you may be thinking that we didn't see a box company or a Mr. Clucks in last night's season 4 premiere of Lost
, and you'd be right. But Randy, played by Billy Ray Gallion, did show up on the episode, as an employee at yet another crappy job. This time around, he's working for Circuit House, the electronics store where Hurley's big car chase that opens the episode ends. Randy is the employee video taping the entire thing.
Is this Randy's ultimate revenge, recording Hurley's downfall? And why is it that Randy seems eternally stuck in middle management? With 47 episodes left before the series finale, I have a hunch we'll be seeing more of him. .
