I’ll say it again just incase, Do not read this if you have not seen the Lost finale and/or the epilogue included on the Lost Season 6 DVD

Anyway, if you have seen the epilogue, does anyone know what Hurley meant by the “job” for Walt? In a way I think the whole epilogue kind of left viewers guessing than answering some questions, but my guess was for Walt to take over as the ‘Man in charge’, and Walt was the ‘New’ leader.

The Dharma Initiative was explained as to why the islander’s were still getting food drops, but other than that I can’t think of anything that was answered.

From the very first season we are introduced to “special” people. The other’s kidnap Walt because they believe that he is special. John Locke believes that he himself is special. Jacob’s “mother” tells him that he is special. So what exactly does it mean to be “special”.

I believe that being “special” means that you are a likely candidate to be Jacob’s successor. People that are on Jacob’s list are considered special for this reason. Perhaps, special people also have some sort of supernatural powers. We are told (in S2 or 3) that “Jack wasn’t even on Jacob’s list”. I believe that Jacob never wanted Jack to be his successor. He just wanted Jack to believe that he was special so that he would replace the cork in the Source (therefore saving the world) and then pass on protectorship to Hurley (who truly is special).

But I would love to hear your ideas!… What exactly made Walt so “special”? Was Locke actually special, or was he just conned into thinking he was special by the Man in Black? Who else was special? Were all the candidate’s special?

Point a : Walt. Whats up with him, his story isnt finished, is it? He seemed to be fairly integral in the first few seasons now hes mia.

-Thoughts? / Theories

Point b : A quote  by sawyer that stood out in my mind. “God has nothing to do with it” – something the writers wanted to convey to the audience?  Or am i reading to much into it?

Walt?

I was just wondering if I missed anything with Walt?

I don’t think many questions have been answered about him (eg, why is he special? why did he appear to Shannon? etc) and I can’t find him on the forecasted credits. I might be jumping the gun a bit.

Can anyone shed any better-informed light on this?

I’m new to this site and this is my first post so someone might have already said this but i would like to thank brokenankh42 for getting me on this thought process with his piece about a connection to star wars. He said he thought Walt or Aaron could be the one to balance the islands force. I would like to tweak that a little bit and say both could be a key to each side of the island mib’s side and Jacobs’s side. As we know black and white has played a central role in the story (backgammon, Jacob and Mib’s clothing) what if Walt is the key for mib’s side and Aaron is the key to Jacob’s side

First Aaron as we know he is special because he was able to be born on the island (could be because he wasn’t conceived there). Another thing that’s struck me was as I was watching the one hour long recap before the season 6 premiere they gave the back story on characters we knew were important (obvious ones like jack, Kate, Sawyer) but what felt odd to me was Aaron was given one. In the 5 seasons this show has been on before this recap many characters have played a much more important role in the plot then Aaron yet he was mentioned. Which means to me Aaron could be the key for Jacob. We know he is light (symbolized by light skin) and as we know Claire was infected meaning she was now under the control of the smoke monster and Claire came to Kate in a dream saying to not bring Aaron to the island. This could be the smoke monster knowing if Aaron is brought to the island he could lose this war so he manipulated Kate much like he manipulated Ben into killing Jacob for him.

Now to Walt. We know Walt has always been special and the others were very interested in him when they ran tests on him in season 2. Many people would argue this because up until now Walt has done nothing evil and has been a good character. Well now i will once again bring up the star wars reference and parallel Walt to Anakin. Anakin and Walt were both good growing up (Anakin becomes a Jedi) but in both we see flashes of anger. We saw Anakin massacre the Tuscan raiders when his mother died. Also when Walt was ignored in a flashback by his mother and step father he slammed a bird into the window. I have also seen it speculated that Walt summoned the polar bear to attack him in one episode to get the attention of his father. Now Lord sidious recognized the awesome power of Anakin and turned him to the dark side. What if Mib gets a hold  of Walt and makes a promise like “help me and you can see your father” again to turn Walt to the dark side (symbolized by his dark skin).

Thank you for reading and this could be utterly wrong i didn’t exactly do any research i just madly started typing away when the theory came to me

feedback is appreciated.

Alright, this might sound a little far-fetched, silly, way out there – but it’s kind of like a little light went on inside my head. This is for some hardcore Star Wars fans – and don’t worry, it does link up to LOST.

So, I have been rewatching the Star Wars Trilogies this past week, and something struck me that hadn’t before. I never truly understand the “Prophecy of the one who will bring balance to the force” because I never really understood what ‘bringing balance to the force’ really meant.
What I realised is that the Jedi order has slowly been losing their powers and abilities to use the force because of the increasing prescence of the Sith. The Sith eventually gain enough power to overthrow the Jedi order – which leads to the purge at the Jedi temple.
Now, it was believed that Anakin Skywalker was the chosen one to bring balance. And although young Skywalker actually is responsible for the death of many Jedi, in the end he is also responsible for helping the Jedi return. He kills Sidious and his son becomes the newest Jedi knight, able to teach others the ways of the force. He brings balance insofar as the Jedi will now be able to have their full abilities to use the force once again.

Now, bringing this all back to LOST. I’m not saying there is a force or anything, but, there is a struggle between to sides to have control of the Island – Jacob and MIB. Consider the fact that MIB’s power has been growing, and he has now found his loophole which allows him to finally kill Jacob. The balance of power has been altered.
So, there must be one who brings balance to this power struggle. I nominate 2 possible contenders: Walt, whose abilities scare the crap out of me, and Aaron who was only supposed to be raised by Claire and no one else. Perhaps one of these two boys is the chosen one, meant to come back to the Island and restore the balance of power. I’d like to side more with Aaron (although, I’m open to suggestions as to why Walt is the chosen one). Remember in season 5 when Claire appears to Kate (most possibly as the Smoke Monster or the MIB) and tells Kate to never bring Aaron back. This might be because the MIB knows that this child is the key to his destruction – so he makes sure that he cannot come to the Island.

That’s pretty much my theory. Hurley’s reference to Star Wars in season 5 also helps connect the meaning of one story (Star Wars) to this particular story – so it may not be a total coincidence that it gets thrown in there.

Anyways, thoughts? Comments?

The little dude has been the subject of many discussions since Lost began. As we all know, most if not all of the characters names have some meaning, so i checked out the meaning of Walts name….”commander of the army”!
Instantly this reminded me of the much talked about backgammon scene from series one, and Lockes speech about an ongoing war between two sides, one side light one side dark. From the beginning, Lockes character has been built up as an almost messiah like figure, and his backstory has shown him only to be a downtrodden niceguy. Walt on the other hand, always seemed brooding and sometimes creepy, as we learnt a little about his supernatural abilities, it seemed to me that the writers were forshadowing some kind of inert evil within him. One of the main themes of lost (much like most fiction) is the battle between good and evil, and knowing that the writers like to flip the script on us, and create an ambiguity as to who are the good guys and who are the bad guys, and the fact that Locke now seems to be on the dark side (and possibly leader of them), what if Walt is/was supposed to be the leader of the opposing team?

Walt was always considered ‘special’ by the others, so much so that they decided he was too much to handle, and allowed his father to leave the island with him. Maybe this was something to do with M.I.B and part of his plan? Walt being too powerful to be the opposition?

When Ms Hawking arranged for the off islanders to return, she stated that they ‘all’ needed to go back, and that it was of grave importance, i think her words were if they didn’t ‘god help us all’. The writers of lost pay close attention to every intricate detail (most of the time), and every aspect of the show is there for a reason (especially in these last crucial seasons), if i remember correctly,  Walt was the only one that Locke visited off island who didn’t return on flight 316, Abaddon even reiterated that Ms Hawking said Locke needed to get them all to return, after he’d spoken to Walt, and Locke replied ‘hes been through enough’. What if Walt was supposed to go back or wasn’t even supposed to leave in the first place?

On a side note, Ms Klugh asked Micheal if he’d ever seen Walt where he wasn’t supposed to be. Walt has appeared on the island whilst also being off island, the only other person i’ve seen appear in two places at once is Locke (Flocke and Lockes dead body). I don’t know what that means but just food for thought.

 

Out of all the mysteries on lost, i will be dissapointed if Walts story isn’t concluded in a big way, especially after the way Micheals story ended. This isn’t exactly a theory, just a collection of thoughts, i wanted to see what you guys and gals thought of the meaning of Walts name, and its relevance to the rest of his story in season 6, if he has one that is (i really hope so).

MERRY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL!!

Hi everyone!
Havent posted in a while and my first post back is a bit of an impulse to write. And usually I do all my research and try to find holes in my own theory before I post. But I think I’ll leave that up to you lol. I’m getting lazy these days. Anyways after my rewatch I keep thinking of all the loose ends and questions and Walt keeps coming back to me.
I just got this feeling in the back of my head that he was not meant to come to the island in the first place. And some higher power had made that possible. Whether the reason he was there was to be a pawn in the loophole game, or even another reason that we have still to see. It all starts with his abilities and Locke being super interested in him. He is definitely special!
Then when Bea Klugh asks has Walt “ever been somewhere he shouldn’t have?” Well I take it from Bea’s name that she is a clue or says something which is important in finding out what the hell is going on. So maybe she was onto something? Also the thing that gets me is Ben allows Michael and Walt to leave the island, but then needs the other losties to stay. And when Locke goes to see Eloise she tells them he needs to bring them ALL back! So why did Locke not try and bring Walt back? I don’t know I just think something is up here. Maybe Walt was not supposed to come to Island but was supposed to live happily ever after! I feel his presence maybe a key role in the balance of the Island and a key player in two sides of this situation that is going down in the Island. I do believe Walts presence on the island is important whether he was meant to be there or not.
I’m thinking that when Jacob touches the other Losties lol sounds kinda bad there, lol! – Well I think it is important in bringing them to the island? So maybe some other force brought Walt to the Island?
This is probably not true but I wanna hear what you all think!
Best regards
Steph

If MIB is the black smoke monster, i have noticed some intresting facts about him.

>Let’s say MIB takes the images of dead people. He tried many times to kill some of the losties using the images of people they know. Eg: Christian appears on the island and Jack chases him, during this he falls off the cliff and Locke saves him. When MIB takes the image of Dave, he tries to make Hurley suicide. And maybe when Sawyer passed out, and Kate thinks that Wayne’s ghost is inside him, maybe MIB is using Sawyers body, and tries to strangle Kate.

>I think that MIB maybe tries to kill important people to use them, just like Locke’s body.

>There are some holes in my theory though. MIB has already used images of people that haven’t died, like Walt. But Walt is still a mystery and maybe there’s someting else about him. Anyway, that’s my theory, i know it might be silly but it’s just a thought!

In Season 2 “Everybody Hates Hugo” Hurley is drinking from a milk carton, is the picture of the missing child Walt?

This isn’t about the kids that the others took (although if anyone sees how that ties in, go for it) but rather about the three children who have been a major part of the plot for some time now– Walt, Aaron, and Ji Yeon.

Walt (though no longer exactly a child) has been an important character from the very beginning. His powers were a big mystery of season one. We haven’t seen any real closure on this character. Also, his relationship with Locke was very interesting.

Aaron, the original. From one of the very first episodes, Aaron was a mystery. He was the reason Claire was on the island at all. And according to the psychic (who was obviously not a complete ripoff because he knew how to get Claire to the island) he COULD NOT be raised by another without drastic consequences. So where are those consequences? And WHAT is so special about Aaron?

Ji Yeon– Perhaps the greatest island miracle. The island might have cured Rose’s cancer and restored Locke’s ability to walk, but it gave Jin and Sun a child. This seems to be their overarching purpose for being on the island (and they were “Touched by Jacob”, which neither Aaron, Claire, or Walt was…important? Who knows.) Anyway Sun left her to go find Jin. Can her story be done, the adorable little island miracle? Hopefully she will be the savior of the long stale Jin/Sun story line.

So what do you guys think? Are these guys important? If so, why? Will they play role in Season
6? Why have they all been “abandoned” in some way, conciously left on the mainland (Walt by Locke, Aaron by Kate, and Ji-Yeon by Sun), and have all had a parent taken from them by the island. Perhaps most importantly, what makes these kids “special”.

I think that in the final season’s a lot of characters are gonna comeback or we’ll see flashbacks of them.

Walt: He seemed like the most important character of the show at first with his “gift” he’s definitly connected to the island.

Libby: If I remember it right she was pretending not to know Hurley, when we know for fact that she was in the same institution as him. She bought a boat for penelope widmore. And then she ends up in that island!!!!She did not end up in that island for no reason!!!!!!!!!!!

Charlie: I think that the guitar case Hurley was bringing with him on the plane is Charlie’s and that Charlie’s past gonna turn out to be very significant.

Desmond: Desmond’s definitly got a unique gift and I think is really important for the island maybe he’s from the past of the island and doesn’t remember it.

Claire: Claire’s probably gonna play an important part in the next season. To many questions about her and Aaron are unanswered.

Tell me what YOU think.

I was thinking back at how much Walt seemed so mysterious, and I was sure that he would be an integral part of the story. And at first I thought I was wrong, but maybe I’m not after all. Think about the entire show, other than Jacob (who aparently is responsible for bringing people to the island somehow), and the man in black(who seems to be able to trick people, and possibly control or be smoke monster), who else seemed to have super natural power, as far as I can tell, only Walt. I feel like this can’t me an accident. Walt is special somehow.

My theory is, whatever Jacob(and possibly man in black?) is, Walt is also. He seems to have some ability, and this would explain it, maybe he’s the next Jacob, so to speak.

My guess is that he’s going to be making an appearance in the last season. I mean think about it. It would explain why he was allowed to stay off the lsland(after all its not safe there at the moment with all this going on.)

The significance of this could be big-or not. But it fits with lost , because it would be totaly out of left feild. They barely touch on whats going on with walt, no one is thinking about him then, SUPRISE! Here comes walt.

Better not to waste time extolling the superb quality of tonight’s episode. Suffice to safe, excellent. Here are some completely new revelations, and some old ideas that found new life tonight.

1.So the obvious: is Jughead (the bomb) the “chernoybyl” like thing guarded by all the lead and concrete beneath the Swan? They covered it with concrete. There was some kind of leak. Somehow it can interact with the “time wheel substance,” potentially destroying everything. They devised a way to “release the energy,” devised a “fail safe key,” yada yada. Food for thought at least.

2. A new perspective on life viewed through the eyes of Richard (and to some extent Ellie, Widmore, and the rest of the others. But especially Richard.) Time travel narratives typically follow the path of the traveler. But I love to look through the eyes of people living in the times they traveled to. Imagine this. You’re Richard Alpert. An old man with a limp wanders into your encampment, proclaims himself to be a charge sent by Jacob, hands you an old compass, tells you he has seen the future, asserts himself your leader, gives strange hints about his birth in two years, pleads with you to tell him how to get off the island and then…completely disappears. In Richard’s timeline, Locke would have been yelling “how do I get off the Island” and then gone the MOMENT after the flash (and, assuming Richard too sees the flash thats double: a flash and a disappearing Locke). Ellie would confirm the same happened with Faraday, Sawyer and Juliet, while Widmore et al would say the same for Miles and Charlotte. The matter surely would have left Richard in somewhat of a funk. I do surmise he lost some sleep over the matter. Then he decided it merited a visit to Tustin California. And there, in the hospital ward, Richard would find younge John Locke, just as future Locke told him. Its no wonder that “Locke” would take on a mysticism to Richard and the others; no wonder they would later tell him “we have been waiting for you a long time.” If the flashes continue, I presume Locke will make more entries into Richard’s life at various points. Each time he will stay a little, perhaps telling Richard what he knows, perhaps obtaining information about the Island’s secrets from Richard. And each time he will disappear, and things he says may/will come true. I think this may even further express why when Richard went to visit age 7 Locke he got SOOOOO PISSED. This is before he truly understood the principles guiding Locke’s journey. He tried to reach out to him to early, slowly learning he may never “officially” meet Locke until after the plane had crashed on the island.

3. Eloise. I have been on the fence since last week about whether Hawking is Faraday’s mother. I now believe it to be true. In addition, I think Ellie (the gun wielding blond) is Miss Hawking. Reason: Ellie is short for Eloise. Daniel says to her “you look really familiar to me.” This would be because she is his mother. And the final evidence (something that randomly fell into place tonight: a memory that “came to me” just like Desmond) Farday named his test mouth Eloise. After mommy dearest.

4. Why Walt Finally Makes Sense to Me!! (The actor at least). First of all, did anyone else’s broadcast network have the “hot pockets” (or something) commercial with Walt? That boy needs a new agent. But on to the business at hand. It has always perplexed me how the writers would deal with Walt’s age. This has probably become apparent to others already, so I apologize for reiterating what is already in your mind. But when we saw abnormally pubescent Walt visit Hurley, it was THREE YEARS after he left the island. So he would be 13-14 at that time. And though still a mighty pubescent 14 year old, a 14 year old he remains, making his age plausible. Thank goodness!

So, tell me what you think. And lets continue the conversation.
