Black flashlight thing in pilot episode
Sorry if this has been posted before — did a search and couldn’t find any reference to it…
I re-watched the pilot episode last night for the nth time, and again found myself fascinated by the scene where Jack wakes up in the jungle. Next to his head on the ground (to his left, the viewer’s right) appears to be a black flashlight or some cylindrical object. And Jack is fumbling around with his left hand, like maybe he remembers that he was holding something and now he’s dropped it?
It doesn’t seem like the producers wouldn’t have put this in if it didn’t have significance. But the only significance I can think of would involve a time loop of some kind that will explain this object — maybe we will find out this season.
