Lost: Answers Puhlease!!!

With so much excitement and build-up to the season finale, we all have questions that we must have answered. Here is the place to do it. Four-toed statue, who is Jacob, will Charlie die, is Locke alive, Naomi, Smokey, hot underwater babes, or a full Desmonition? These are just a few. Tell everyone what mystery you need to have answered and feel free to add your own solution. This should be fun....who will be right?!?!

Who are the underwater fem-bots affiliated with?

Is Naomi really who she says she is?

Why does Kate want to be rescued when they'll throw her in the slammer asap?

Where is the snowy location of Penny's search crew?

Is Lost going mainland? I thought the producers hinted that we are leaving the island soon in the answers show.

Who really is Red Neck Man?

Why and how can't the island be seen from the "outside world?" How do you make an entire island invisible or unable to be found/seen?

And, for the love of all things holy, puhleez, confirm/deny the whole pergatory/hell concept once and for all.

It would also be really nice to have more insight into the "space and time continuum" thing ....Des's forward flashes; time travel abilities, etc.

#2. Posted by: GatorGal at May 21, 2007 1:10 PM

When will they admit that Kate is preggers?

Where is Vincent?

How much time has passed in the outside world?

Those are mine, for now...

#3. Posted by: fred at May 21, 2007 1:13 PM

Who is R and why did he take my place? (mif)

What do the numbers really mean?

Why are dead people seen again?

What are Walt's powers?

Why does Cindy always wear that scarf?

Where is Annie?

Will the characters ever find out about their interlocking pasts?

Will Hurley ever find out about Libby?

Will Des ever find out that Libby was there on the island?

#4. Posted by: meg at May 21, 2007 1:13 PM

What is the smoke monster? Did Dharma create it or was it always on the island?

#5. Posted by: Jenny Talia at May 21, 2007 1:15 PM

I have to say, I watched the clips show on Thursday - nothing too revealing or unknown, obviously, but Damon and Carlton really did seem to want to shut down the purgatory/hell aspect of things. And they did mention that 'where in the space/time continuum is this island?' so that bit raised my eyebrows a little. Maybe it is slightly outside our world, but visible at certain times, etc., which could explain how the plane got there, the Black Rock, Danielle's ship. And if the Dharma initiative was able to discover how to find it in other ways, they'd be able to go back and forth at their leisure. Remember how Ben said to Locke that anyone who left now, after the magentic anomoly, wouldn't be able to come back? Something on the island acted as a beacon and now it's been destroyed.

Ramblings, maybe, but that brings me to my main question, harking back to season one: "Guys, where are we?"

#6. Posted by: Irish at May 21, 2007 1:19 PM

And...almost about explaining the numbers?

#7. Posted by: fred at May 21, 2007 1:26 PM

I could never take your place Meg!
Great question about Des & Libby!

Gator Gal - Producers reiterated on answers show this is not purgatory, losties are not dead or ghosts.

"If they left the island, then there wouldn't be a show, right?" - The Producers on Answers show (rather tongue in cheek I thought too)

#8. Posted by: R at May 21, 2007 1:38 PM

Has Obi-Locke gone all Qui-Gon on us?

Where has Vincent been finding an endless supply of Dog Food? Has he been eating all of Ben's easter bunnies?

How has Danielle gone from a mild mannered scientist to a full blown ninja?

Will there be a ninja-daughter reunion?

Why did we get such a lame excuse for Patch's "death"?

Will we see a zombie love triangle between Boone, Sharon, and Sayid?

If the "magic box" was just a figure of speach, what was it suppose to mean?

#9. Posted by: The Other Other at May 21, 2007 1:39 PM

I've got a fever......and the only prescription is more cowbell, and an explanation regarding the 4-toed statue is what I really want. That has to be the most out-of-wack thing to date I'd say.

#10. Posted by: Red...Neck...Man at May 21, 2007 1:50 PM

hi everyone i work for lost i was an extra in a flashback and they let me see what happens in the future episode so if you want to know a answer to a question just ask me.
signes laffo

#11. Posted by: laffo at May 21, 2007 1:54 PM

The numbers were explained in the Lost Experience.

What I want to know most is the origin of Smokey.

#12. Posted by: Brian Douglas at May 21, 2007 2:01 PM

I second all the above questions and here's mine:

What happened to Michael and Walt?

Is Jacob a Jinn?

If Jacob is a Jinn, then is he also Smokey?

Is laffo (post 11) sincere? If so, what scene was he/she in?

And finally - what's up with all the bunny hatin...

#13. Posted by: BunnyLover at May 21, 2007 2:05 PM

*********SPOILER***********************well the smoke doesnt appear in the next few episodes but the producer told me the smoke is created up of all the people who have died on the island hope that helps

#14. Posted by: laffo at May 21, 2007 2:06 PM

no jacup is not a jinn and even is i was not sincere i would still know what scene he was in he was on thursdays episode with locke and oh i cant remember the other guy but he is the leader of the others not including jacup

#15. Posted by: laffo at May 21, 2007 2:14 PM

RNM: "more cowbell" LOL!!!

laffo, how can we take you seriously when your name is laffo? (Wait, are you by any chance married to Anne Heche?)

I third all the above questions, and would like to add:
Why is Richard Alpert forever young?

#16. Posted by: Clementine at May 21, 2007 2:16 PM

ok if you cant take me serious im going.

Bye lost fans

#17. Posted by: laffo at May 21, 2007 2:21 PM

And laffo has LEFT the BUILDING!

(Hope that wasn't Lindelof/Cuse incognito. Now where will get our answers?)

#18. Posted by: Clementine at May 21, 2007 2:27 PM

@ Clementine: - And laffo has LEFT the BUILDING!


#19. Posted by: BunnyLover at May 21, 2007 2:38 PM

Taking the topic seriously (always a dangerous thing to do), my top three are:

1. Who/what is smokey?

2. How can the island remain hidden to the outside world/surveillance satellites, etc.

3. How do people get on/off the island, given that we've seen two or three (or four) instances of real-world people accidentally stumbling accross it?

(1) The Losties
(2) Rousseau's ship
(3) Desmond
(4) The helicopter pilot?

A close fourth - Where did the Hostiles come from?

#20. Posted by: Cecil Rose at May 21, 2007 2:54 PM


#21. Posted by: Destynee at May 21, 2007 3:02 PM

The Lost Experience explained the numbers? I was never able to get all the way through it, so what was the explanation?

#22. Posted by: Josh at May 21, 2007 3:02 PM

i'd like to know what happened to walt&michael?

i dont recall the meaning and purpose of the #'s being explained as someone stated so i would like to know that.

the little girl from mr. eko's backstory, i'm not sure if i fully understood what the producers/writer's were trying to put forth with that whole story line.

i'm sure there are a lot more i just cant think of them right now. :)

#23. Posted by: tiffani at May 21, 2007 3:09 PM

ok, heres my big questions:

1. Who staged the fake plane crash that helicopter women was on about?

2. Why did Jacob say 'help me' even though Ben said 'Ok youve had your fun'?

3. Is Smokey Jacob and is the black stuff around the shack what he uses to turn into it?

4. Why is whats his name forever young?

#24. Posted by: ben at May 21, 2007 3:12 PM

@22, 23
Numbers explained

"It has been revealed in The Lost Experience that these six numbers are the core values of the Valenzetti Equation, a mathematical formula designed to predict the end of humanity. The numbers in actuality are said to represent human and environmental factors in the equation (given numerical form), though their precise meaning is uncertain. The purpose of the DHARMA Initiative was to change the factors leading to humanity's demise, which will be indicated by an alteration in at least one of the human/environmental factors - i.e. the numbers. However, in all its years of research, the Initiative failed to reach its goal. Despite much research and manipulation of the equation's values, the end result was always the numbers"

My top two questions;
1 Why would The producers share secrets with some 'extra' named laffo?

2 Who or what is smokey, my money is on Richard Applet

#25. Posted by: Matty Matt at May 21, 2007 3:26 PM

Most are wondering about Smokey. Lindelof/Cuse, in recent interviews, have answered that Smokey will not be revealed before the very end of the series. Not this year, not next year and not the year after that. Yes, we have to wait until 2010!

#26. Posted by: JT at May 21, 2007 3:50 PM

Matty Matt: Thanks!

#27. Posted by: Josh at May 21, 2007 3:50 PM

Questions, questions, questions...

1. What, precisely, is Smokey? (Yeah, I know, they won't answer until the final show.)

2. Is Locke in touch with the spirit of the island, or completely insane, or both?

3. Same question as above, but about Ben.

4. Where is this island, and if it's not on Earth (which it obviously isn't), how is it connected to Earth?

5. Am I really the only person on the planet who didn't hate Ana Lucia?

6. How many other people named after famous philosophers are on the island? I'm pulling for somebody named Kant to show up next season...

#28. Posted by: Zeb at May 21, 2007 4:05 PM

I'm very curious, how significant are the names? Such as...
John Locke: Philosopher
Richard Alpert: Spiritual Guru
Kate Austin: Anarchist Writer

I have a feeling these will come into play more...

#29. Posted by: richardalpert at May 21, 2007 4:23 PM

the numbers are all the boston red socks retired jersey numbers

the producers denied the purgatory thing on a speacial recap that was after grey's anatomy a week ago

and zeb, no i didnt hate ana lucia

Why is hurly still fat i mean really is there like a hidden dharma McDonolds?

lost isnt going to end until 2010 , how long can it take them to get off the friggin island?

#30. Posted by: Kaseygirl at May 21, 2007 4:51 PM

Woops! i said red socks! lol i meant red sox
oh and never mind about that whole thing anyway. i heard it from a friend and didnt search it...

Hey is Locke dead?

#31. Posted by: kaseygirl at May 21, 2007 4:59 PM

My top question right now is, What, exactly, is the Looking glass?

Followed closely by, Where the hell are the children and why do they take them?

Where is the food coming from? and is it still coming?

Why was the plane so far off course? I mean, really.

Why are Sawyer + 2 (and maybe R & B) the only ones boinking? What about other couples? Could there be more Lostie women pregnant?

What the hell is Rousseau waiting for? She could have met Alex by now. What is her real relationship with the Others?

What happened to Annie?

These are real mysteries to me--ones I don't have a clue to the answers.

Anyone care to theorize?


#32. Posted by: En Provence at May 21, 2007 5:14 PM

I have a feeling that we get some new questions. I'm sure that we will get some answers.

#33. Posted by: Batteries Included at May 21, 2007 8:13 PM

Burning questions:

Does our favorite hobbit make it to another season or no?

Will Locke reappear from the pit? Will he be a factor if the Lostaways/Others clash? Whose side will he be on?

Will Richard Alpert/anyone else lead a revolt against Ben?

Will Juliet's duplicity (heck, triplicity) be exposed?

If five people were supposed to die before the end of the season, including Cooper, who will the other four be?

Inquiring minds want to know...

#34. Posted by: Alaïs_Longthought at May 21, 2007 9:49 PM

The five questions I want to see answered, along with my guess on the answer :

5)Q: When is Richard Alpert's birthday?
A: April 8, 1516 at 11:42 PM (4-8-1516 23:42) making him 488 years old.

4) Q: Are there any descendants of the Black Rock survivors (or actual survivors) among the island natives? For that matter, how about a flashback to the Black Rock's arrival on the Island.

A: Wouldn't surprise me if Richard Alpert had been aboard the black rock. I doubt we'll get that backstory, so here's my own crack at it -

The first moments of the season 5 premiere episode: We see a tall sailing ship caught in a fierce tropical storm and being tossed about like the SS Minow. Water is spilling over the sides of the ship and into the main cabins.. the camera follows the flowing water on it's journey to the lowest parts of the ship. Below deck we see hundreds of prisoners - men and women - frantically trying to escape from their chains as the water keeps rising. "Captain!" we hear a shout from the deck above.. As the captain comes into our view, we follow his gaze and are shown the peaks of the Island mountains. A gargantuan wave forms behind the ship. The ship begins to quickly rise, and then pitches towards the island. As the ship nears the shore, screams come from the crew on deck - directly in their path is a seemingly ancient statue of a human figure, at least 100 feet tall. The figure's arms were bound together in front of it with shackles - not part of the sculpted stone figure, but actual restraints made of a metal that shone as brightly as the day it had been forged. The ankles were similarly bound. Even as the captain's mind raced with fear of the impending disaster, he noticed that each of the figure's sandaled feet have only four toes. The ship, which had already risen to about the height of the statue's shoulders, is slowly drawn backwards toward the wave's forming crest. It seems to pause for an instant atop the wave before being violently propelled forward. The ship collides sideways with the statue and sends it toppling. The wave carries the ship nearly a mile inland before depositing it in the thick of the jungle trees. The deck appears empty, as most of the crew had been thrown overboard. Inside the ship, we see the captain pull himself to his feet. As he emerges onto the deck, he is faced by about a dozen of the ship's captives who managed to escape their chains. "Stand Back" the captain barks, then takes a catious step backward. A sudden loud thump and a crackling sound come from the nearby trees. As everyone turns towards the sound, several distant trees get seemingly uprooted as something appears to be approaching the ship. A few more trees get uprooted, then ... quiet. After nearly a minute of silence, the prisoners turn their attention back to the captain who had drawn his pistol during the distraction. He cocks back the hammer on the weapon, and is about to squeeze the trigger when he is encircled by a thick swirling column of smoke. This is accompanied by a rattling sound not unlike several anchors being raised at once. The captain, firmly in the grasp of the black smoke pillar, is hoisted briefly above the stern of the ship, then impaled on a splintered piece of wreckage. The camera pans slowly from left to right to show us the reaction of those on deck - then pauses on one particular face - a familiar face to us all - it's Danielle Rousseau! She looks filthy and haggard, exactly as we are used to seeing her. The camera pulls back until we can see the entire ship - and the inscribed words "Black Rock" and "Portsmouth" at the stern. The camera pans along the length of the Black Rock until the bow comes into our view. Beyond the wreck, at the base of the tree line, we see a handful of people emerging from the jungle - at first we see only their legs and feet - some are barefoot and some are wearing sandles - but all have four toes. The camera zooms out and we see at the forefront of the native islander gathering is Richard Alpert - who looks nearly the same age as he did in Ben's childhood flashback. The word "LOST" flashes accross our TV's and we are all treated to our first commercial of the season.

3)Q: When Ben conned Sawyer into believing that a pacemaker had been implanted, what was really done to him?
A: Based on the revelation that something had been implanted into Claire that can be later triggered to produce symptoms, I find it hard to believe that the Others would pass on an opportunity to do the same to anyone they had captured. Perhaps they rendered him sterile - and when Kate eventually turns up preggers she'll asssume it's Sawyer's. And we don't find out until the shocking season 5 finale who the father really is..

2 Q: Was Penny's search for Desmond on an Island with electromagnetic properties a result of Desmond's interactions with Donovan after he traveled back in time following the hatch implosion?
A: Yes - When Donovan first approaches Penny, she completely dismisses his story. But Donovan does some digging and stumbles upon details of a very secretive research project called the "Dharma Initiative" which had been carried out for a number of years during the 70's at an undisclosed location. While he was a first year grad assistant, Donovan had heard rumors about the research sponsored by the Hanso Foundation - and how it eventually failed when it's entire community of scientists and their families succombed to an unspecified disease. Donovan probes deeper and learns that the research had since been resumed under conditions of quarantine - only the research was now being funded by Widmore Industries. Donavan manages to share this info with Penny only moments before he dies a sudden tragic death. Penny then uses her connections and resources to uncover secrets about Dharma, her father, the Island, Desmond, and a surprising connection with another of the lostaways. Her discoveriees will be major reveals during a pivotal Season 4 episode.

1) Q: Will laffo be killed off in the season finale?
A: Definitely. The producers have guaranteed us that this will be laffo's only appearance and that his death will be a memorable one.

**** SPOILER ALERT (NOT!) I read on another site that laffo gets pecked to death by the Hurley bird right after he mistakes the giant nest near the radio tower for a working toilet.

#35. Posted by: vacc at May 21, 2007 10:37 PM

@vacc: I enjoyed the Black Rock flashback, but the laffo spoiler slayed me. Always wondered what happened to that guy.

I miss you, laffo! Our time together was too short.
Signes Clementine :(

Bye lost fans

#36. Posted by: Clementine at May 21, 2007 11:41 PM

These are some of the Top Ten questions that nag at me:

1) What, if any, was the significance of “Adam & Eve” (the skeletal remains found in the caves) as well as the black & white stones Jack found with one of them?

2) What is the significance of the black/white symbolism we have seen throughout the show so far?

3) What exactly was Klugh protecting or afraid of that she would rather have Mikail kill her rather than be captured by the losties?

4) Why did Tom (a.k.a. Mr. Friendly) appear to be warning Jack about listening devices before Jack entered the rec room in Bennsylvania where Kate was handcuffed and sitting on the pool table?

5) What is the significance of Juliet being marked? Aside from hurting at the time that she was “branded” how exactly is this a punishment for her? What is the impact of her being marked?

6) What was that brain-washing video that Karl was being forced to watch all about? How does that tie in with The Others & what they are doing on the island? Also, who are Karl’s parents and/or where did he come from, since he clearly couldn’t have been born on the island?

7) What exactly is the illness that Rousseau & Kelvin alluded to, and that Desmond took vaccine against? Is it real or some type of mind-control fear-inducing tactic used by the others?

8) How exactly did Anthony Cooper arrive on the island if The Others didn’t bring him there? Was Ben lying as usual when he told Locke that he didn’t know how Cooper got to the island?

9) It would seem that Claire’s escape from the Medical Hatch after her abduction by Ethan was not part of The Others plan, yet if they weren’t planning on having her return to the Losties, and if they were going to kill her as Alex said—why would they go to the trouble of putting an implant inside of her that they could activate later from a remote location?

10) Why did the hatch implosion blow off Desmond’s clothes but no one elses?

#37. Posted by: Christine at May 22, 2007 1:28 AM

1. Locke better not be dead !
2. the origin of Smokey (fat chance)
3. significance of the numbers ?
That one is pretty blurry and it seems they are trying to make me forget about it. I have not.
4. Where the %#$$ is Michael and Walt ?
-about the same elaboration as #3
5. Why are/were the "hostiles" waging war against Dharma ?
6.Ya, the 4 toedstatue-a decent offering.
7.where the He%$ is Miachael and Walt?
8.What EXACTLY is the purpose of the Swan/magnet/execute button/ such and such.
9.Who was subjected tothe"God loves you as he once loved Jacob" fim fest other than Carl ?
10. "Were goingto need a bigger boat"
aren't we ?
11. Where is Michael and Walt ?

#38. Posted by: thinng at May 22, 2007 3:11 AM

How are all of the losties related and will they ever find out about each other?

Are Nikki and Paolo still alive? Is Locke still alive?

What happened to Michael and Walt. If they are back, isn't the whole world shocked that they appear to be alive while they were found dead?

What's the whole story of the people who where already on the island (Rousseau, the Others). Why are they so hostile?

What are Walt's powers?

Why is Locke special? (and mean too)

Have the makers of Lost expected the viewers to be so alert? And will they be able to satisfy us by giving us ALL of the answers?
(I give them the benefit of doubt)

I'm curious !!

#39. Posted by: Mary-Jane at May 22, 2007 7:27 AM

I have to say that I am very peeved about the way the Numbers has been handled. If the only explanation we ever get is the one from The Lost Experience I think it will be a real shame. There is no satisfaction in that. The satisfaction will come when HURLEY gets to find out the significance of the numbers. These numbers have plagued him for years and he's the character who is the most wrapped up in them. It seems to me that the producers would be doing Hurley (and us) a great disservice if they never allow him to find out what the numbers are all about.

#40. Posted by: jay at May 22, 2007 8:32 AM

Was it a staircase or an escalator?

#41. Posted by: PiecesofArzt at May 22, 2007 8:33 AM

Hi everyone, I had extra cheese on my Big Mac today so if you have any questions ask me ok?

- gasso

Meanwhile, since this is the place for questions, I have one. Has anyone seen my remote control? I seem to have lost it toward the end of season two...

My big question for the producers? Why did you have to call the Dharma underground buildings "hatches?" C'mon. "Island?" "Hatches?" All I can picture is Richard Hatch of Survivor fame - not a pretty picture and it certainly leaves a bad taste in my mind. How about calling them bunkers, dugouts, or underground dwellings - something other than hatches.

But seriously...the question I most want answered about Lost is Charlie's, "Where are we?"

#42. Posted by: bcre8ve at May 22, 2007 8:45 AM

Another one:

How long has it been since Michael and Walt left? Two weeks? Isn't that enough time for Naomi to have heard about them? If they're not still wandering around in the ocean, that is.

#43. Posted by: En Provence at May 22, 2007 8:55 AM

Was all of this planned by the Others of not?

How do the Others know so much about the Losties?
It can't be a coincidence that all of the Losties are related to each other.
So this means that the Others planned the crash so they could bring these people to the island!

Or not?

#44. Posted by: Mary-Jane at May 22, 2007 9:32 AM

The remote is always in the last place you look for it.

So look there first.

#45. Posted by: Cecil Rose at May 22, 2007 10:40 AM

We should all shape up and invite laffo back! He could actually be one of the shows producers, yet posing as an extra.

I heard on the radio a few days ago that a lot of the actors actually get on to these blogs and read them. I wonder if one of us could be Hurley, Locke, Ben...the possibilities blow my mind.

New acronym: LIK - Laffo Is King!!!!

#46. Posted by: meg at May 22, 2007 10:48 AM

@Cecil Rose/45 "The remote is always in the last place you look for it. So look there first."

I believe that it is in the box with the cat, so I'm not really sure if it exists or not. So why even bother to look?

#47. Posted by: bcre8ve at May 22, 2007 11:05 AM

I used to have a remote that, if you lost it, you could just jingle a jar of pennies, or your keys, to change the channel.

#48. Posted by: Cecil Rose at May 22, 2007 11:14 AM

If you really want revealing answers, I advise you to go to the LOST SPOILERS on the bottom of this website (under hot searches).

But watch out, because I'm actually disappointed that I allready read a part. Wait until tomorrow!

#49. Posted by: Mary-Jane at May 22, 2007 11:19 AM

@Cecil Rose/48


I guess that goes to prove that if you throw enough money at something...


I guess that goes to prove that change is good...

I wanted to try that but I didn't have pennies or keys laying around so I found an old cane to use. It worked at first but then, unfortunately, it stopped working. I guess I have more channels than I can shake a stick at. ; )

In case anyone is concerned that we are off topic - CR's post was full of allusions to the show:

"I used to have a REMOTE (remote island) that, if you LOST (Lost - the name of the show) it, you could just jingle a jar of PENNYs (Desmond's girlfriend), or your KEYS (as in small islands), to change the CHANNEL (as in body of water)."

#50. Posted by: bcre8ve at May 22, 2007 11:26 AM

i am in agreement with jay(#40)about the numbers being explained someplace else other than the actual show. you do feel cheated, its like why make it a part of the mystery, make a huge deal about them and than explain it elsewhere; leaving the characters and the viewers completely LOST to what there significance is.

at least show somebody, anybody using, understanding or incorperating the numbers for something, anything. :)

#51. Posted by: tiffani at May 22, 2007 1:18 PM

why do none of the others get older!!in the episode of bens childhood it showed him meeting one of the others in the woods who was the same age as he is now, and had not aged a bit...just got a bit of a hair cut.also,what is jacob?

#52. Posted by: jamie at May 22, 2007 3:18 PM

I don't understand why people on that island can't communicate properly! for example:

rousseau and juliet! shes one of Them! have a little chat!!

jack hiding info from the rest of the Losties, shes (Juliet) one of them! THEM godammit! argh!

and another thing... people's reactions don't seem realistic. like, if you're camping in a really really remote area for a very long time and suddenly you find that someone has been living underneath for the past three years, like right underneath you in some sort of hatch and you didnt know anything about it BUT you're completely alright with it. (!) isnt that what the people on the beach are like!

its my opinion and ive just realised that im on a rant and supposed to be typing questions.... sorry!

#53. Posted by: Andie at May 22, 2007 3:38 PM

Questions I'd like answered in the season 3 finale:

Is Locke dead or alive?

Did Michael & Walt make it to safety?

Is Juliet a mole or Jack's new girlfriend?

Will Charlie live or die?

Has anyone stepped in any Vincent land mines?

Is the four-toed statue part of a Simpson's Movie promotion?

#54. Posted by: Alex (Not Rousseau) at May 22, 2007 4:48 PM

Damn, Alex (Not Rousseau) took mine (Simpson's Movie promotion). That's what I get for working and not posting...

And oh yeah, BTW, where'd the rest of the statue go? If it fell, wouldn't there be some more of it the Colossus of Rhodes? Or is it like the foot in the Monty Python opening?

1. In "Live Together, Die Alone", Desmond says to Sayid "...going to see the Hostiles, eh" (or something like that). How does Desmond know about the hostiles?

2. Sayid's Praying. I've been asking about this for months, still no answers! In "Solitary" leaves the beach camp, finds the cable which leads him into a trap set by Danielle. He's hanging upside down from a tree and praying. He prays in Arabic then in English says "what happened to Danielle" then finishes his prayer in Arabic yet he hadn't met Danielle nor knew anything about her. He also does the same thing in "Live Together, Die Alone". While on the boat with Jin and Sun, he prays in Arabic, in English says something like "...must help the Island" then finishes his prayer. I believe there is a meaning to all of this but what??

3. For goodness sake, please figure out the Walt/Michael ordeal. Harold's performance was so stellar in season 2 that I can't just wrap my brains around his character (and Walt) not completing it's Lost story.

..oh and Laffoon (Laffo) How is it that the producers can tell YOU, an extra, about Lost but the major actors know just a tad bit more than the viewers. U suck.

@57 Amelia:

Desmond knew about the 'Hostiles' from his years in the Hatch with Kelvin. That's what Kelvin called them, so Dez would probably think of them as Hostiles rather than Others.

***** Spoiler Alert *****

Well, sort of a spoiler. It's info from the producers:

It's pretty hard for Lost to follow up on the Walt/Michael storyline if Harold P. doesn't want to come back to the show right now. The producers have stated that they wanted him to come back for the finale, but he declined. I guess it's only a spoiler for what's *not* going to be in the finale. Guess we'll have to wait until season 4 for answers on Michael/Walt. You know, when Walt is 6 foot 6!

#58. Posted by: JoePike at May 23, 2007 8:38 AM

i have to agree that Michael and Walt need to come back asap. The suspense is killing. I want them back full time season 4, and at least 2 flashbacks, one that explains wot happend to Walt when he was taken by the others and 1 to show where the hell they`ve been all season 3. I think they need to get back to them before they can accelerate the story.

#59. Posted by: Jack at May 23, 2007 9:59 AM

1. Who/What is smokey?

2. Who/What is Jacob?

3. Does time in fact play a role in when/where the island is?

4. What happened to Walt/Michael?

5. Why do they see dead people? (Jack's father, Eko's brother Yemi, Ben's Mother)

6. Why does Kate see the horse?

7. Where did the Black Rock come from and were there any survivors that are still alive?

8. Who are the Adam/Eve skeletons and why did they have the backgammon pieces?

9. What are the origins of the four-toed statue?

10. Why does Richard Alpert not seem to age? Is he one of the island's original inhabitants?

11. What exactly was the "incident"?

12. What caused the Dharma Initiative and the "Hostiles" to not co-exist?

13. What was behind that concrete wall in the Swan Station?

14. Who staged the fake 815 crash near Bali and why??

15. Why was Libby in the Mental Asylum?

16. Will we see Jack turn on the "Losties" in the season 3 finale? It seems like he's leading the women into a trap and we will find out what exactly happened to him after Kate and Sawyer escaped.

#60. Posted by: vEnOm at May 23, 2007 11:24 AM

@ JoePike -

Yes, it's very possible that Desmond learned about the Hostiles from Kelvin. So how does Kelvin know about the hostiles but to what extent? Did they have any associations with them?

As far as Harold P. (Michael), there's been all sorts of stories about whether or not he will return both from ABC and from Harold himself. Still not sure how/if the Michael/Walt storyline will be solved. answers regarding Sayid's prayers??....need that.

#62. Posted by: Nic21j at May 23, 2007 4:21 PM

You guys realize that even if the answers to all your questions come up, new questions will be there, too.

I'm starting to hate the whole sci-fi no-answers-just-questions thing. I would stop watching Lost, but it's like a drug. Easy to start on, impossible to quit. Except you don't get bruised arms from Lost, except if you are hitting yourself because of the pain and agony of not knowing what is going on.

So, yeah.

Living here, I have gotten to meet some of the extras/stand-ins/stunt people on the show, but I purposely avoid discussing anything spoilerish with them. I don't know who Laffo really is, but if he is a regular extra, he would be on the set most days (even when not appearing on camera). If he was just used in a single flashback, I doubt he would know much about any of the other episodes, but he could have had discussions with various cast/crew/whatever and know some of the generalities of what is going on.

Also, since season one, the producers have talked about maybe moving filming to the mainland, due to the high costs of shooting here in Hawaii. It is something brought up every year, but as yet I have not heard anything official about a move.

Finally, the question I want to know is what the heck happened to Michael and Walt when they took off at the end of last season? And will Jack and Claire ever find out they are brother and sister? Or that Libby and Nadia seemed to know EVERYONE on the island before they got there?

So were Jack's flashbacks really flashbacks, or were they glimpses into the future? And if they are from the future, why would he say "Have my father come down, if i am as drunk as he is right now, you can fire me."...considering Jack's father was dead when they crashed onto the island.

Jack could've just been senile on drugs and talking gibberish about his father.

#78. Posted by: Phil at May 23, 2007 11:35 PM

Perhaps, in regard to Jack talking about his father, nobody ever found out that he had died. Since he died in Sydney and his body was "lost" when the plane crashed, no one ever heard about it and after Jack gets off the island, he just goes about pretending he's still alive, or something. It's out there, but it's the best I can come up with in this hyper-confused state right now.

IIFY? (Is It February Yet?)

#79. Posted by: Trinity at May 23, 2007 11:39 PM

WOW. that's all i can say.
In response to the comments about Jack. I believe in 2 theories, both assuming these "backstories" were future stories:

1. Jack's dad is alive. Remember when they didn't find the body? Maybe it was just a long- con??

2. Jack is just wayyy too drunk to know what he's saying

That was honestly the best last 5 mins of any Lost episode or any other show i've ever watched. WOW!

#80. Posted by: Ross at May 24, 2007 12:03 AM

Has anyone else thought of this...I know it goes deeper then this..but there must be a coorilation to "The Sins of Our Fathers". I have been watching for years and have never seen the web sites or read posts or seen the underground web sites..but after wathing the pre summation tonight..there seems to be a direct link to Fathers. Locks Father being the cause of Sawyers issues. Jacks Father and his faults and being Clares Father, Jin's Father In Law causeing him to have his faults and past, Ben's issues and final killing of his own father and Kate killing her own step father for abuse of her mother. Could the final lesson in the ending of human life..."We pay for the sins of our Fathers?"

#81. Posted by: erin at May 24, 2007 1:09 AM

Unbelievable episode. Can't wait for Mac's recap.

The casket in the flash-forward (Hoffs/Drawlar for you anagram fans) was small, like a child's.

I think either Aaron or Baby Kwon was inside. If the flash-forward was set in the present day, they would both be around three years old, big enough for a child-size casket.

Baby Kwon seems the most likely candidate, with the whole Island illness. I just can't think of why nobody would attend the viewing.

Kate asked Jack, "Why would I go?" That's key. Ben is small; he might fit into a smaller casket.

Whoever it is, they have probably done something to alienate everyone except possibly Jack, and it could be somebody or something we don't yet know about.

#82. Posted by: James at May 24, 2007 1:39 AM

OK - That was a great episode.

I have no idea what to expect for next season.

I hope Charlie makes it somehow.

#83. Posted by: Sean at May 24, 2007 2:08 AM

No worries RNM, I am not RELATED to Laffo.

I don't know what to think about the finale. All the "now" stuff on the Island was great, but I am still deciding how I feel about the "flash forward" or whatever that was...

#84. Posted by: FenwayBen at May 24, 2007 4:21 AM

I tossed and turned all night....DYING to find out who's funeral it was....

Fabulous finale- I'm sick that we have to wait until Feb....but I couldn't have asked for a better episode!


#85. Posted by: Sillygirl0630d at May 24, 2007 6:51 AM

I really don't think it was a child casket. If it was Aaron or baby Kwon, Claire, or Sun and Jin would have shown up. If the baby's parents died the baby would have been left to someone whether it was a family member or an orphanage/foster family. Meaning someone would have gone to the funeral. Children funerals are never empty. When Kate said I have to get back to him, did anyone think she had to get back to Sawyer?

#86. Posted by: Matty Matt at May 24, 2007 7:47 AM

Long time lurker, first time poster...mind if I jump right in?

I know it was a short casket, but I kept thinking it was Locke. Who else would have alienated himself so much (trying to sabotage their efforts to get off the island) that no one would come to his funeral? Anybody fiddle with that shot of the newspaper clipping so we can get a better look?

I was a little underwhelmed by the finale, except when we saw that Jin, Bernard and Sayid were alive...and when Hurley saved them all. If that was the future, it was really disappointing.

I so hope they don't do this. To have the dry semidesert of Southern California as a setting instead of the lush tropicalness of Hawaii as a backdrop for the "Lost" story would be a major mistake. It's bad enough watching "Jericho" set in the little known mountainous regions of Kansas, or the little known arid regions of Virginia on "The Waltons". But "Lost" take place on *tropical island" for goodness sake!

And for those speculating on the survival of Jack's dad - the clip show reminded us that Jack saw his father's body in Australia before it was shipped home on Oceanic 815.

mac: If next season's shows match the intensity of these season-enders, maybe you'd better consider the possiblity of a 'discussion blog' stub posted at air time to give the fans a place to comment when we can't wait the *whole twelve hours* (insert whiney sounds) for your excellent recaps to begin chattering.

#88. Posted by: Cecil Rose at May 24, 2007 9:21 AM


Glad to hear I was not the only one who tossed and turned. It is going to be a long 7 months.

What was Ben talking about when he told Richard to take the rest of the others to the temple?

I think Julliet has truly left the others for the losties because when Sawyer killed Tom, she didn't even flinch.

I did not like the forward flash, but it does bring a whole bunch of new questions.

Mac please hurry, we need you.

#89. Posted by: Gerard at May 24, 2007 9:44 AM

I personally think michael was in the casket. Of all of the lost people, he was hated the most...especially by kate, sawyer et al. After all, Michael is the one who betrayed them. So it makes sense that kate would question why she would go that funeral.

#90. Posted by: lovehatelost at May 24, 2007 9:52 AM

Why not Ben in the casket? He seems the most likely to be hated by all.

#91. Posted by: ChicagoT at May 24, 2007 10:06 AM

I'm of the mind that the future flash wasn't actually a future flash. It was current time and the backstory was the "getting off the island". I don't like it, but it seems that's what was going on.

#92. Posted by: katijo at May 24, 2007 10:09 AM

curious if this even happens this way, but the flash forward seems to assume that they get rescued from the island and are brought back to civilization but it is not present day...perhaps early nineties (nivana playing on bearded Jack's radio, his dad still very much alive and drunk upstairs in the hospital, Kate returning and living "underground" per say with Sawyer still running from Johnny Law. so at the end when Jack says to Kate "we shouldn't have left the island, its not right", maybe because yeah they got off the island and got back home but it is terribly not right because it is the wrong timeline..

i dunno...wierd..

#94. Posted by: skinnyfists blah blah at May 24, 2007 10:41 AM

With Jack in the real world, it had to be a fast forward. Remember the scene when he calls kate to meet him. As they were panning over to Jack there were a bunch of maps and compasses on the floor as if Jack was trying to find the Island to go back. Maybe it is a time warp thing and they got thrown back into the real world but at an earlier year. Almost like in "Flight of the Navigator". Oh man...It's so Crazy!

#95. Posted by: Nick at May 24, 2007 10:58 AM

skinnyfists, if they got brought back "in the past", don't you think Jack would run into himself at the hospital?

Also, the new head of surgery guy said that Jack was a hero - twice. Presumably the first time was when he surgically repaired his future wife.

@96 Phil said:

I thought the "twice" referred to saving the child, then going back into the burning auto to save the mother.

#97. Posted by: Cecil Rose at May 24, 2007 11:42 AM

Did anyone else notice that when Jack was on the cell phone in his car, he had a razor phone - how long have they been around? Wouldn't this be a clue to the past/present?

#98. Posted by: Mary at May 24, 2007 11:42 AM

Okay, I think the timeline is present day with island flashbacks. Here is what I noticed:
1) Jack mentioned that 20 minutes can be a long time to the flight attendant. Is that a ref to an altered space-time continuum?
B) Jack makes ref to his Dad, not sure what to make of it, some have already started to discuss. We did see Jack identify the body in season 1, and the producers have said that once a person is dead, they are dead. Except for Mikhail, he has more lives than a cat.
i) The song playing in Jack's SUV was the one Charlie was writing in the Looking Glass. Does this mean Charlie lives? I doubt it, but it is pretty cool. TTFN Peace out.

#99. Posted by: onelostdude at May 24, 2007 11:43 AM

REARVIEW MIROR - when Jack looks into it while he's waiting to meet Kate at the airport, the refelction he sees is of an older guy. WTF? Anyone else see this?

#100. Posted by: jmamama at May 24, 2007 12:03 PM

I would imagine it is Ben in the casket...he is the only one who would have no one show up to the funeral. I think it had to be normal time in the future, since Oceanic gave them all gold tickets to travel whenever they want.

Great episode

#101. Posted by: Kevin at May 24, 2007 12:07 PM

The cool thing about this flash-forward is that they could take it in any number of directions. The flashback has been an amazing tool to show us how these people ended up where they are now. Perhaps they will now use the flash-forward/island-flashback to gradually reveal how they all end up after being rescued.

Or maybe the Season Four premiere will have Desmond saying to Jack, "You can't leave the island brotha! I've seen what happens!"

#102. Posted by: James at May 24, 2007 12:12 PM

@ 96 & 97:

When the surgeon said Jack was a hero twice, I figured the first time was getting all the Losties rescued and the second was saving that woman and her child.

#103. Posted by: notsoeasy at May 24, 2007 12:12 PM

@ 98 Mary -
I noticed the same thing about the RAZR. I mentioned that to my wife while we were watching the episode. Were they even out in 2004 - the year of the crash? That made me start to think it was alternate dimensions or a future flash.

Poor Jack, if that's his future, I hope he doesn't get off the island.

#106. Posted by: GFish at May 24, 2007 12:32 PM

2. Who is in the casket? (Is it Laffo?)
3. Who was Naomi working for, if not Penny?
4. Were any actual bunnies harmed during the production of Season 3?
5. WTF are we all gonna do for the next nine months??

#108. Posted by: Olliemmy at May 24, 2007 12:36 PM

According to wikipedia and some articles referenced therein, the RAZR began production in July 2003 and was first sold in 2004. Only 1 million were sold during 2004, they were a "luxury" phone at the time. In 2005 they became popular.

#109. Posted by: GFish at May 24, 2007 12:39 PM

Please stop calling them a foward flash - has anyone even thought about the fact that maybe for this one, the flashes are of them on the island? jack is remembering what lead up to getting off the island.

i think season 4 will be all done in Current Islanders - doing reverse flash backs of the island times from the city
cause there lives all fall apart when Home again.

Season 5 will be them deciding like a "final desitination" thing that they made a mistake and were not ment to get off and band togeather to get back there anyway they can

Then in the Final season they get back - take down what ever group was on that chopper - and in the end they all become the "New others" of the island and maybe someone else crashes there and then they like done to them now come full circle in becoming what they feared from the beginning.

Then S

#112. Posted by: katijo at May 24, 2007 12:54 PM

What bothers me (and what I haven't seen anyone write yet) is that the porthole blown open by patchy was a good 18" to 2' below the ceiling of the hatch in which Charlie was killed.

There would have been an ample supply of air at the top of the hatch for Des to find something to break the porthole in the door and for them to figure out a way to get Charlie out before he tired of treading water.

Even if they couldn't get him out, there were a number of diving tanks in the bay. They had PLENTY of time.

Oh... and btw, after the door porthole was broken and once the bay was flooded to the level of the outside porthole, the pressure would've been equalized and the door could be opened again.

#113. Posted by: Chidad at May 27, 2007 10:05 PM

Anyone else have a really bad feeling that something like the finale to Knight Rider is going to take place...with the whole thing being a 20 minute hallucination of Walt's taking place during his water rescue.

Personally, I think the writers have a beginning and an end and the stuff in the middle they might be scrambling for their own explanations.

1) How/why do some people exhibit quasi-regeneration powers and some do not?
2) How @#&! big is this island? Do they not explore it? Huge radio towers, farms, villages....? Lets see an arial shot.
3) Does anyone else think it would be funny if Kate had a portly half Hispanic baby?...Just saying because fat guys get secret lovin' sometimes too.

#114. Posted by: Dreamer at May 29, 2007 11:21 PM

Chidad @113: "the porthole blown open by patchy was a good 18" to 2' below the ceiling of the hatch in which Charlie was killed".

I wholly concur. But then I thought - maybe the ceiling in that chamber was not the airtight limit of the room - sure, if the room was airtight - the O2 loss should have stopped at the top of the collapsed window. If air was being forced out the top of the "less than airtight room", then Charlie was doomed. The question now is - if Charlies' death chamber is not airtight, then, in fact, the entire Looking glass Station is at risk. Desmond better high-tail-it out in that case. Of course immortal Mikhail will be waiting outside for Des, unless the Dharma logo sharks haven't feasted on leaking Mikhail as of yet!

#115. Posted by: DocH at May 31, 2007 3:09 AM

when the hatch imploded and the sky turned purple, did the entire planet experience that? or just the islanders?

#116. Posted by: ........... at June 1, 2007 3:31 PM

reading these comments have got me asking more question than the actuall show man. the comment on jack listening to charlies unwritten song in the future flash. as we know for sure now that charlie is dead how does that song ever get released? and as for whos in the coffin i don't think its a kid to be honest no idea but do hope it is ben cause he does deserve a sticky desmise.

as for locke he has gotta to be the new leader of the others and just kick out ben he can go live with jacob for all we care. and we see walt again but i personally think that is defiantly jacob. and cant wait to see what and why naomi's boat is waiting to get on the island. and are they gonna kill everyone.

my questions are:

1. will ben let alex go live with her mum and tell her what happened and why she was left in the jungle for 16 years?

2. is it true that the actor who played micheal is refuseing to come back to lost?

3. why did the others use the sonic fence to stop smokey when it could just go over the top like kate and locke did?

4. and of course where is the island why can noone find it, will we see the numbers again and whats with the damn 4 toed statue?

tell me now or i think i will go mad cause i cant wait 7 months and im in england so all u in usa get it before us you f*****s

@114 Dreamer said:

My specualtion is that everthing can be explained by super-surge in the human ummune system. That enables people to heal quickly from anything that doesn't immediately kill them. It also explains the deths of pregnant women - their own immune system seeks to way with the intruder/fetus within their body but not genetically the same as it. But the improved immune system cannot regenerate missing tissue (eyes, limbs).

>3) Does anyone else think it would be funny if Kate had a portly half Hispanic baby?...Just saying because fat guys get secret lovin' sometimes too.

Yeah! Chunky power! I've also been wondering what if the baby comes out black - there were a couple of episodes in S-1 when Sun and Michael seemed to have a relationship.
