A person's constant anchors his or her consciousness as it travels back and forth through time and realities. by William Bibbiani Monday 24th May 2010 The Top Ten Questions ‘Lost’ Never Answered LOST FINALE QUESTION!? Wouldn't that alteration to the time stream have a ripple effect that disrupted everything else regarding the Oceanic 815 crashing? Who built the statue, why they built it and what did represent are all things you can probably find out with some historical research on ancient cultures. Rather, there were many plot devices that ultimately pointed toward the series. People who have done the research claim the statue The Lamp Post used the Island's electromagnetic properties to track it as it moved through space and time. What questions do you wish were answered how did you like the ending? Well, Michael we know is stuck on the Island as a "whisper" because he can't move on, due to his killing of Libby and Ana Lucia in season two. For much of season 6, many fans assumed (based on the opening to the season six premiere, "LA  X") that the bomb that Jack and Co. detonated in the 70s (the season 5 finale) resulted in the Island sinking and an alternate timeline being created, in which Oceanic 815 never crashed, and things were slightly different in the lives of the passengers. Lost: Some Series Finale Questions and (We Think) Answers by Trevor Kimball, May 24, 2010 We’ve been getting a whole lot of questions and comments about the Lost finale. This is one Lost mystery I don't really need answered. is there another season of 24 after the season 9? Ben then accessed the secret room in his Dharma house and disappeared into a secret passage covered in hieroglyphics. Still, the flash sideways of Season 6 felt very purgatory-ish as dead characters turned up alive and interacted with their former Island pals. When he forced Desmond to pull the cork, he broke the Island's power over him, which meant that he was stuck in the body of John Locke and could no longer transform into the smoke monster. An epilogue revealed that he was retrieved by Hurley and Ben to return and use his special abilities to help his father. After Jack's death, Hurley became Protector of the Island with Ben as his #2 to keep the cork in and kept the destructive forces contained. Lost was a phenomenally popular show during all six of its seasons on ABC, but it also posed a lot of questions. The good news — producers have extended the finale by at least 30 minutes. As it turns out, the bears were brought by the DHARMA Initiative as test subjects for the electromagnetic properties of the Island. It was a complex series with a killer cast that knew how to pluck at our heartstrings even when it didn't make the most sense. Will not time travel. The numbers also showed up again and again throughout the show (Danielle's papers, on medicine Claire and Desmond take, on Mr. Eko's stick, etc...). Ok, so this is MY major question. She safely delivered Aaron with surprisingly few complications, all things considered. The list of candidates (Sawyer, Jack, Locke, Hugo, Sayid and "Kwon") equate to the numbers 4-8-15-16-23-42 - the numbers that both steered Hurley to the Island in the first place (he went to Australia to find out about them), and served as the code for releasing the Island's tapped energy in The Swan station. His biggest limitation was that he could not leave the Island so long as Jacob was alive and working as Protector of the Island. THE END. Locke was 4, Hurley was 8, Sawyer was 15, Sayid was 16, Jack was 23, and 42 was either Sun or Jin Kwon. The Man in Black was turned into the smoke monster that could kill as well as inhabit the bodies of the dead, like Christian Shephard. But it certainly is a major thread left dangling. In the end, I think the showrunners went for an "It is what it is," approach with the mystical rules governing the Island; they are convenient plot devices that support the story at various points, but don't really hold up when looked at in conjunction with the entire series. In short: Eko, by finding his faith and coming to peace with himself, had no reason to be in the purgatory world with the others. Instead what we got was a time travel scenario where that one location, the 70s Swan station, seemed to "overlap" on its present-day self, while leaving the rest of the time stream unaffected (or something like that). Throughout all six seasons of Lost, a certain assortment of numbers turned up time and time again. As Desmond and Jack discovered in the finale, the cork wasn't entirely metaphorical. Jack and Kate took advantage of his new mortality and killed him before he could escape and spread his darkness to the rest of the world. Like most time travel narratives, the situation with the hatch raises a ton of logistical questions, such as: Would Desmond still be on the island if the hatch had been destroyed in the past? In one of my favorite Lost episodes, "The Man Behind The Curtain", we learn all about Ben Linus' childhood with the Dharma Initiative. Jacob killed his brother - known only as the Man in Black - and sent his body into the Heart of the Island. Sunday is the series finale of "Lost." Wait, Was Dale Moss Cheating On Bachelorette Clare Crawley During Their Entire Engagement? In the season 4 episode "The Shape of Things To Come" Ben Linus witnessed the murder of his daughter Alex at the hands of Charles Widmore's mercenaries. Hi everyone,A buddy of mine worked on Lost during its entire run. Who finished the donkey wheel? Take a look at our breakdown of what the cast members of Lost have been up to in the years since the end of the show, and check out Netflix if you're in the mood for a rewatch of Lost. What were the rules? While Sawyer and his group were time-shifting while on the water in a time shift, they encountered another outrigger that opened fire on them. Who built the four-toed statue and the chamber? Between episodes we would theorize as to what was really going on. (I assume if you're reading this there's no need for a spoiler alert.) This special episode was a look at the questions that have been answered and the mysteries yet to be solved for the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 was the focus of a special—in anticipation of the season finale episode—called "Lost: The Answers", which aired Thursday, May 17, 2007 on ABC. What did Widmore really want? The episode ends with the chilling revelation that Ben - conspiring with Richard - betrays "his people" in the initiative and mass murders them using nerve gas - including his own father. The truth is surprisingly simple. Pregnancy on Lost was a hot topic from the very beginning when the very pregnant Claire survived the crash of Oceanic 815. At the end: But some fans were infuriated not to have their questions answered. Luckily, we found out some of the answers to some of the biggest. The coordinates of the Island were automatically calculated at the Lamp Post station and transmitted to DHARMA employees working at a supply warehouse in Guam. over and over - but no such luck. Hi. Richard was another notable absence from the church at the end, leading some to wonder if he was still dealing with immortality. Was Aaron doomed to stay a baby in the afterlife forever? The folks of the DHARMA Initiative survived on the Island thanks to periodic food and supply drops. Mass murder is never a good thing, so the fact that Jacob at least allowed the mass murder of the Dharma Initiative (it's his role as "protector," right?) Desmond's constant was his lady love Penny, and Daniel Faraday's constant was Desmond. The Island was nearly destroyed when Desmond removed the cork, but Jack managed to save the Island and restore the light by putting the cork back in. He undoubtedly died at some point between the Ajira escape from the Island and the reunion in the church. After Jack and Co. moved on to the next plane of existence and the credits began to roll, pictures of the Oceanic 815 wreckage on the Island beach flashed across the screen. Wherever his soul was going, it was prepared for that journey - unlike the other passengers, who still had to come to peace with themselves and their deaths. The go-to source for comic book and superhero movie fans. Looking back from the series finale and the "Across The Sea" episode about Jacob's past, I can't help but wonder: did Jacob murder the Dharma Initiative? They were key players in the first few seasons, so it would have made sense if they too made it to the reunion in the church. There was literally a cork in the Heart of the Island. Walt.
