Lost - The Television Show - My Questions and Answers

Note: Major LOST spoilers below

This is PART 1. See Part 2.

First of all, yes, I know that Lost ended in May 2010. I watched the Finale the night it ended. I didn’t start watching Lost until 2009. I knew I wanted to watch it, and that I would most likely enjoy it. But I hate shows that make you wait week after week in order to enjoy the entire storyline and the cliffhangers and blah blah blah. So I timed it so I would only have to watch the final season (season 6) week-to-week. It was still annoying, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Before I started watching Lost, one of the things that I heard was that Lost gave a lot of questions but never answered them. So I set out to write down each and every question that I came up with while watching the show, for each episode. I also set about writing down the answers to said questions, and which season they answered my question during. It was actually interesting to do. Below are all my thoughts on Lost, which I wrote down between 2009 and 2010 immediately after the finale.

  • —2.19, a church
  • ? why did Henry Gale really come back?

  • —why did he have to kill Libby?
  • —do we get to figure out/know Libby’s story or is it insignificant?

*2.22 * Michael(*)

  • —(*) Michael’s character/story is rather unbelievable. As a father who has never really tried to get his son back, his desperate attempts to get him back now make no sense. Why would he kill people and release an ‘Other’ thinking that the Others will be honest in returning Walt (after attempting to kill Michael before)? This is just lame. But the overall storyline is moving on, so I liked the overall episode.
  • ? who are the Others really (Walt said they were lying about who they are)?
  • —4.X/5.X, they’ve been on the island (forever) protecting it from outsiders

  • ? what did the Other (black woman) mean when she asked if Walt could be multiple places at once?

2.23 *** Desmond

  • —interesting that Desmond ‘crashed’ the plane onto the island. (Electromagnetic field)
  • —interesting that the General that let Sayid go was the same guy that was in the hatch when Desmond was first there.
  • —interesting that Desmond said that perhaps the experiment was on the ones in pearl (since the button was real)
  • ? did the others really let Michael/Walt go freely?
  • —4.8, yes, but now Michael is a spy for the Others
  • ? is HG the leader of the Others?
  • —3.23, mostly, but he supposedly answers to someone named “Jacob”
  • ? why does HG refer to themselves as the good guys?
  • —3.23, probably because they think that they’re doing right to keep other people away from the island.
  • ? what did HG mean when he said that he got a lot out of Walt?
  • ? what do the Others want with Jack, Kate, and Sawyer?
  • —3.12, they wanted Jack to save Ben. Kate and Sawyer, dunno…
  • ? why were the Others guarding a door that was a ‘fake’ hatch door?
  • —3.1, probably to make Michael think it was real
  • ? where is the Others’ real camp? why the fake looking camp?
  • —3.1, probably to make Michael think they lived that way.
  • ? what happened to Mr. Eko? To Locke? To Desmund?

  • ? when the electromagnetic went off, how is it that Desmund’s former lady (Penny Widmore) knew to look for that?
  • ? what was the super bright light?
  • —guesstimate, the electromagnetic field?
  • ? in the end with the guys in the icey place, were they near the island?
  • ? what were the giant four-toed feet things on the way to the Others’ camp?
  • —5.X/6.X, where Jacob is living. Not sure how long it has been there or how it was built though.

Season 3

3.1 ** Jack

  • —introduced to Juliet
  • —Jack is still stupidly-stubborn
  • —The facilities they are at are huge
  • —significance in where the placed each person: Jack in a locked, dark room (in the aquarium/Hydra facility), Sawyer outside in a locked cage, and Kate in a bright room, not locked, and asked to take a shower?
  • —The others appeared to live in nice little homes… why are they so hostile?
  • ? what did Juliet mean when she said “that was a long time ago” in reference to the Dharma Initiative?
  • —5.X, the Dharma time for her was her present in S5, but she may have referenced the fact that she was there in the future (currently present)?
