101 Unexplained Mysteries

Wow. I’m so glad I spent 6 years watching that show to be left with a cliched, wholly irrelevant violin-serenaded church orgy whilst the actual important questions went unanswered.

So perhaps if we can get a list of 101 questions that still need answering (which frankly, is more than have ever been answered in a single season), we could force the producers to make a 7th season/film/revealing interview? I’ll start the ball rolling:

1.) Why all the pregnancy issues? People dying, Others kidnapping pregant women, Aaron and Ethan successfully being born?

2.) The Island’s healing properties.

3.) Why was Aaron special, and why was it important that Claire raise him, then for Kate not to take him back to the Island..etc.

4.) How was Smokey created?

5.) Why did he want to leave? (Perhaps a trace of MIB’s desire to go home?)

6.) The Source and the cork….wtf?! The light turned from gold to red and some steam came out. Scary. What did Desmond/Jack/MIB think was going to happen?

7.) Jacob’s semi-invisible cabin resident.

8.) Lame dagger that did nothing.

9.) Smokey’s loophole?

10.) Richard gets a grey hair and MIB can be killed because…? The light was temporarily turned off?

Carry on…

  1. Diesel, I’m at such a state of discontent with the producers/writers that if they want to attempt to viably answer any questions that I have to think up for them that they’ll have to pay me quite a pretty penny to get it. Damon, Carlton and co. played us for fools. True, LOST had much value and I learned quite a bit from it, however, wwwwaaayyyy too much was left open for interpretation and our imaginations. Too many dots do not connect or compute.

  2. The ended had no connection with the first 5 seasons. Just shows how much they were padding it out! Another question – why did the others make michael deliver kate, hurley, jack and sawyer? Coincidence that they were the last 4 from oceanic 815 left. I doubt it, but we will never know!!!

  3. I choked on my water when reading “church orgy” LOL

    My main question: Why did you make the last season so friggin terrible?

    Weak-ass writing.

  4. oh yeah
    What was the point of Walt
    What was the point of Annie
    Why did the bird say Hurley?
    Why did they write the finale on the night before it was filmed?

  5. yeah i remember reading somewhere that we would definately find out about the hurley bird.

    what about Libby?
    How come Eloise could see the future?


  6. Perhaps Walt saw how bad the finale would be and just made himself scarce so he couldnt be embarassed by the p**s poor dozen monkeys on a dozen typewriters written ending!

  7. I agree with Charliealltheway – Season 6 seemed to go off on a completely separate storyline than the first 5 seasons; it might have worked if they had actually explained one or two things properly, but clearly that was too much trouble.

    I’m still baffled as to how they managed to make it suck so utterly and entirely – the first five seasons were gold! Was an entirely new team of writers hired for season 6 that hadn’t watched any of the previous seasons?

    In retrospect, if I had a choice, I would have preferred the Season 5 finale to be the last ever episode, as season 6 only asked more questions than it answered, and the ending was more than dissatisfying.

  8. Question 23..or somewhere there abouts…I wonder how much hatemail Carlton and Damon will accumulate over the next few weeks/months. If only I could feel sorry for them…

    4. Alvar Hanso and the DeGroots?

    11. How did the cabin move? Why did Jacob live there? For how long? The ash?

    37. Miles, Lapidus etc. are not in the church?
    38. Hurley and Ben lead the Island… Really? Ben? For how long? Do they have to find a new candidate, 2000 years from now when a spaceship crashes?
    39. How did all of the other people die and end up in Sidewaysville?
    40. Why did Jacob touch Sayid and Hurley after they made it off the Island?
    41. Does his touch actually do anything? (Richard got his “gift” by drinking stuff)

  10. diesel 123:
    “we could force the producers to make a 7th season/film/revealing interview?”

    I have written that very thing several times in this forum. There is a 6th season dvd in production AS WE SPEAK for release in august (?). They kept placing ads for it on Jimmy Kimble. Disney,Buena Vista Home Entertainment -ABC studios, who own Lost are going to want to sell many many copies of this product.

    Write them an e-mail and commit to boycotting this product unless the box set includes a feature-length documentary revealing or answering all those nagging little questions internet fans have about the science fiction or continuity elements of Lost.

    Let them know clearly that you were not satisfied with the approach taken in season 6 and they stand to lose a lot of money in sales from the negative backlash from the internet.

    These people are businessmen. They are greedy and only care about the bottom dollar. They also have a heck of a lot of influence with the producers of the series.

    “You’ll never work in this town again” may be a cliché, but it is also a very potent threat coming from the head of ABC studios to a television producer.

    That said:

    Dr Mr Wizard:
    Whoah! That’s a heck of a list. I like it.

    A lot of those questions can be answered fairly easily right off the bat just by thinking it through. 37- Miles and his dad have a lot to work through before they are ready to go on, whereas the group in the church were ready. Same goes with Daniel and his mother, father and Charlotte, ditto for Michael and Walt and many other characters (we see that Ana Lucia is not ready. She clearly has issues about her mother and losing her baby. She died embittered and corrupted.

    Other questions have been answered by the producers in interviews – Like 42- Mr. Eko. You may not like it, but the actor bowing out of the series changed part of the plan they had for the series. If you want to know where Eko is… Has he become a whisperer on the island or been promoted to the state of flash sideways where he and his brother are reunited and doing missionary work? We do not see him on the flight as it lands in LAX. That is an interesting question to ask.
