i know a lot of ppl on here think that rose and bernard were adam and eve and i kind of thought that, too. but i was just rewatching “house of the rising sun” when jack and kate find adam and eve. jack says that it takes 40-50 years for clothes to degrade like that. if it was rose and bernard they would’ve only been dead for 27 years (if they died in 1977) or less.
i have no theories as to who they might be….maybe somebody from the black rock

Alot of people seem to think that Aaron is Jacob. Does that mean that Walt is the other guy?

has anyone noticed the frequency of these four words? I can fix this. so many characters, when they’re offering to help, to correct something they’ve done wrong or remedy something that sets them at odds with everyone else… they always say “I can fix this”… as opposed to any other variant on the term with any number of other words. jack says it a few times. locke. juliet says it. kate. charlie, even sayeed, I believe. that’s just off the top of my head.
it’s just become this obvious recurring thing… and it really ties into the cyclical theories, the broken record, the notion that they’ve all been there and done this before, keep living through the same course of events, with mild variations, again and again and again… why else would desmond in season three have spoken of saving charlie so many times, and seeing him die so many times when he failed to save him (the drowning while trying to save claire, the lightning, the slipping on the rocks into the water, the arrow to the neck, etc.)…
I’ve just been noticing that a lot, that and the prominence in the series of con men, con games and conning… which I also find terribly ironic.

“if it only ends once …anything that happens before that is just progress”
Jacob says this to mib in the opening scene. I think it has great signifigance.
I think Jacob is trying to prove something, like a specific outcome to an experiment having to do with human behavior in a certain environment or something having to do with humanity. and i think what he means by “if it only ends once …anything that happens before

Season 1: everybody’s playing golf. John Locke is practising his knife throwing. (Later, he will throw a knife into Naomi’s back and kill her.)

I’m currently re-watching season 2. I had completely forgotten about the scenes where Walt appeared to Shannon speaking backwards. This is apparently a unique incident because Walt is, at the time, alive.
I don’t know if this has already been discussed, but…what is up with that? Smoky? Or something else? Is this just part of Walt’s special powers or a unique island phenomena?

When and where did we see Claire last before we saw her in Jacob’s cabin with Locke?

Has anyone thought of the possibility of Mikhail Bakunin being immortal. We know that the island can heal paralysis and cancer, it can also make people ageless like Richard Alpert. We thought Mikhail died when John threw him in those sonic fences, but he was alive to alert Ben about Naomi. Then we thought he died when Des shot him in the chest, but he was alive to kill Charlie. What if he died twice, but then came back? What if he didn’t die with Charlie and came back to living and is now in hiding?

So we had them for two episodes altogether? And in their last one, that we’ve seen, they die yet we get part of their background.
Do you think that we’ll get them again in season 6, and that they have some significance to the story? Or do you think they were just a random filler episode and aren’t important at all?

Okay, I’m confused about why Mr Echo (or Ecko, however you spell it) was killed?
The monster/ Jacob’s nemesis as we’ve recently kinda learnt, had only before imitated people’s pasts. I wondered if anybody has any theories that could shed the light on why it killed Ecko and didn’t just haunt him?
The only theory I can think of is that the monster takes shape of something that he knows will affect people, and after Ecko had just had his face to face with his brother and said that he had no regrets, it realised that Ecko had beaten it? Thus killed it.
As I typed it I realised that it’s not as strong theory as I thought, but still, it’s an idea. 😀

It finally dawned on me how the producers are able to pull off so many shockers and twists without allowing fans to consistently predict what’s around the corner. This may not interest many people, but I almost majored in film production, so I found it fascinating. The epiphany hit me when I was watching last season’s 12th episode, ‘Dead is Dead.’
One of the big mysteries of the time was whether or not Ben had killed Penny. Before boarding 316, Ben left Jack in the chapel. When Jack asked where Ben was off to, he replied, ‘Oh, I made a promise to an old friend of mine–just a loose end that needs tying up.’ With Desmond showing up to the chapel the episode before, everyone knew he was referring to his promise to kill Penelope Widmore.
Unfortunately (for the viewers), the next time we see Ben, he is beat up and soaking we speaking from a payphone at a dock. The fact that we knew Penny and Desmond were living in a boat screamed that something had just happened with Penny. However, the producers masterfully left Penny’s condition up in the air. We simply did not have enough information to deduce the success of Ben’s attempted assassination.
We didn’t get our answer for six full episodes. In ‘Dead is Dead’ wet finally learn that Ben froze when he saw young Charlie Hume, giving Desmond time and an opportunity to attack Ben before he can shoot Penny.
Nobody could have definitively said that this would be the outcome because we had yet to see Ben’s softer side and compassion towards children until the very episode the producers used it to explain one of their cliffhangers. ‘Dead is Dead’ opens with the scene where Ben kidnaps Alex and spares her life.
They kept what happened a mystery by using an event we would not see until the episode in which the mystery is t be explained. I expect the same to be true with the series finale.
I thought it was interesting how the producers use this technique to keep the audience guessing, especially an audience that can access so much information and communicate on theories boards and forums.

i dont think they changed anything, jack kate and the rest of them. if you watch the episode 8 or 9 in season 2 about the missing piece of the film you heard the dharma leader dude (the asian man) talk about “the incident”. any thoughts on this.

hello again everyone. sorry if this has been disscussed before. ive been visiting this site for a few months now and i havnt seen this come up anywhere recently. so just thought i would throw it in again.
something that has always puzzled me in lost is claires psychic? when claire visited him he said that that aaron must only be raised by claire and nobody else. he said that evil surrounds him and that he needs her goodness. he seemed really genuine? at a later date he told claire that he had a plan, he had found a couple who would adopt him for money. that she must fly to meet them on 815, no other flight. why did he suddenly change his mind? did he no that 815 would take her and her unborn son to the island? could he have been working for something or someone that needed claire to go to the island for purposes that are unknown to us viewers yet?
we see claires psychic again when eko visits him because of his daughter coming back from the dead. he tells eko that he makes his living as a psychic and that he is fake. is he really a fake though as he seemed pretty convincing to me? or could he have gained his knowledge for where claire and her unborn son needed to be from another greater source?
im posting this because i really cant decide? what do you guys think?
while im on the subject of claire and aaron. ive been thinking lately that what if claires the important one, not aaron??
claires pregnancy (to give the baby to the adoptive parents) could have been the only
way/reason to get her onto 815. so we, the viewers have been concentrating all of our thoughts and theories on aaron. then of course it was the whole fertility problem and claire getting kidnapped for aaron. which again lead us to concentrate on aaron?
what if though its all really about claire? im throwing this question out there because ive always found it really interesting that claire is christians daughter.christian has always been an interesting one aswell, hes been in lost from the very begining, has met a lot of our losties before he died.he is dead but is alive and has shown himself to various people on the island. he is also jacks father, he was in australia to see claire which is where he died and is the reason why jack was on 815.
anyway, sorry lets get back to claire. shes been in lost from the very begining but hasnt been a major player really, its just aaron why she keeps coming up in storeylines. when im thinking about her i think its really strange how christian appeared to her and she went off with him in the middle of the night, leaving aaron, her baby son?
if aaron is so important, why did christian leave him and just take claire? ive read some good theories about aaron possibly being jacob? if this is right maybe christian left him because he new that our losties would take him with them, off the island and he would be gone? but what i dont understand is if aaron is so important would the island and/or its powers/forces really let him go? the last time we saw claire she was in the cabin with christian and she wasnt her self, it was like she was brainwashed or something? going back to pre island, claire never really knew her father and didnt seem to like him much? so again why go off with him? this has lead me to belive that there could be a very important purpose to why christian took her, the reason i dont no? i was thinking that she could possibly be used againt her brother jack or something somehow? and i did think before that she may be dead, but now im not so sure?
thanks for reading everyone, any thoughts on this? eko rocks

i’ve read alot f theories saying that if 815 doesnt crash, then everone will live. but doesn’t eloise tell desmond that nature will course-correct itself. so jack is avoiding the crash, but the people who died on the island would still die when they were supposed to.

Crazy stuff that goes through my head on nights I can’t sleep.
The first time we see John at the cabin is when Ben leads him there to try and pull a con job on John. But much to Ben’s dismay something does happen. We see a brief glimpse of someone sitting in the chair and John hears the voice saying “Help me.” That little glimpse is the main reason I believed Locke or Sawyer to be Jacob because when you look at the still shot it looks like one of those two the most to me. I had no idea at the time that Jacob never lived there.
The next time John visits the Cabin he enters by himself encountering Christian who tells him to move the island. Claire is also there seemingly without a care in the world. Other than John talking to someone who is supposedly dead nothing happens like the first time with the chair shaking and stuff flying around the room.
Locke also dreams a conversation with Horace as

Ille qui nos omnes servabit – he who will save us all. Due to this one sentence the question “What lies in the shadow of the statue?” can be put in another way – “Who lies in the shadow of the statue?” We all have our own opinion about of who this person might be but if we use some logic we might stumble over some interesting ideas? First off, either we take Illana’s statement word for word leading us to the conclusion – he has to lie in the shadow of the statue or the other way around we can sort some things out. If we’re certain Illana has chosen her words carefully someone really does lie in the shadow of the statue – this shadow might be the one we saw on the little piece of map which hang on the wall in the cabin in “The Incident: Part 2“. That very shadow pointed out to sea which lead to some different scenarios. In previous seasons we’ve been handed the knowledge that the Others build different kinds of stations throughout their existence on the island – both on-land-stations and underwater stations. Maybe they built a underwater station, like the Hydra, near the foot of the statue where the “he who will save us all” lies waiting to be resurrected. This “he” might be the real Jacob and not the fake one seen in Season 5 – obviously this is nothing else than a thought – read more about that in my posted question named “Two Jacob?” Do you really think it’s just a coinsidence that Tawaret was given the power of rebirth? This following is just an idea that came to me in this exact second – wouldn’t it be cool if Charlie was the “he“? Haha, I mean he does lie, dead for that matter, in the Hydra which also is an underwater-station. Long story short, it would most likely surprise the most of us. Now back to reality – there might be a few other posibilities of who lies in the shadow of the statue. One that so many of you have already thought of is that it might be Locke who will be resurrected in order to save the island. Now I am thruthfully too tired to continue writing, I’d better get some sleep now – tell me what you think, but don’t be too hard on me, remember – we all have a purpose.

I bet you all remember when we encountered Jacob at the cabin in Season 3. If you freeze the video at the exact moment as when you can examine

Hey dabs when you putting your next theory out are you working on anything I need something to sink me teeth into. All the theorys lately seem to be repetative like we are stuck in some sort of theoriesonlost time loop. You always put a lot of effort and research into yours and they always seem to get good comments which to be honest I enjoy just as much as the theorys themselves. No pressure though lol. P.S. This little question from me better not give you a big head lol.
