Walt is "special" According to Lostpedia: People have noticed something "special" about Walt throughout his life, and he seems to have psychic powers of some sort. In his flashback episode, called "Special": Brian also admitted that he was afraid of Walt, saying: "There's something about him. Sometimes, when he's around, things happen. He's ...

The only other real explanation given for the numbers relates back to one of the bonus features with DHARMA showing that the numbers are actually part of an equation that predicts mankind's extinction. The other major explanation of the numbers are, as you say, part of Jacob's numbering of the final candidates: 4 - Locke 8 - Reyes 15 - ...

It was actually later revealed by Ilana that the person in the cabin was not Jacob. Exiting the cabin, Ilana informed Bram that Jacob was not there, that he had not been at the cabin in a long time and that someone else was using it. She then ordered the others to set fire to the cabin. The group departed, leaving the structure to burn. She further ...

This page contains all the information you could want, although it does contain some major spoilers (which even at a glance will be obvious). Essentially, the opening non-spoilerific line from the page sums up the reason for the philosopher names: [It] encourages viewers not only to appreciate the show as a character-based drama, but to acknowledge ...

I think Lostpedia is probably your best bet (as long as you stick to the episode descriptions without clicking on any of the links). For example, can read the summary of episode 10 here: http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Raised_by_Another

According to the article about the flight on lostpedia She said that windows provide a route back, but they didn't stay open long, and the window through which they were supposed to enter closed in 36 hours. She handed Jack a binder that contained all air routes that flew over the coordinates of the Island, pointing out that the intended window was ...

I believe that the science explanation is just one way of looking at the island. You can form theories of how stuff works on the island based on the electromagnetic properties and see if it fits. The scientists in the series do just that and offer facts for the viewers that adhere to such a storyline and want to analyze it scientifically. You could also ...

Claire was not pregnant with Charlie's baby, though he treated the child as if it were his own. I don't recall if they ever said who the father was. I believe you're looking for Charlie's Greatesat Hits, which was a list of his Top 5 memories. That list was supposed to be delivered to Claire in the event he didn't make it back. #5 - The First Time I ...

This was stated in the season 3 finale, "Through the Looking Glass": ALEX: You locked Karl in a cage. You put him in a room and tried to brainwash him. BEN: I didn't want him to get you pregnant. I suppose I overreacted. We better get going. Transcript from Lostpedia It's worth noting that a big plot line in season 3 is that pregnant women die on ...

The Man in Black did not know that he would become mortal; he expected that he would be free from the island but retain his form and powers. This is made plain by analyzing the scene with Jack and MiB (as Locke) just after they come out of the cave, following Desmond's extinguishing of the heart. Jack tackles Locke and punches him. Locke tastes blood, and ...

Keeping in mind what we now know (that the monster is The Man In Black), we can only speculate at what John actually saw. Each person who saw the smoke monster presumably saw more than just a large cloud of smoke - they saw some kind of vision in the monster (if memory serves, this is what happened with Mr. Eko for example). What John saw probably affected ...

It has been quite a while since I have watched Lost so what I say may have holes. I believe the island is a sort of Limbo. So one can argue that Jacob could have been a god or deity and the Man in Black could have been his opposite, or at least they may have represented this. Dont think in terms of the traditional religion but think of in terms of religion ...

I'm under the impression that MIB and the Smoke Monster are one and the same. In the episode Across the Sea (S6 Ep15) we learn that the "Mother" made it so they can never hurt each other Why would the Smoke Monster adhere to this (and look for a loophole) if it wasn't Jacob's brother? In that same episode we see that MIB is desperate to leave the ...

The comments have been misleading. The show's creators have been very clear about the fact that they were not dead the whole time, only during the flash-sideways in season 6. The explanation given on the official podcast by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse for what Jack says is simply that he isn't an anthropologist, or archaeologist, so he misjudged the age ...

This will not be what you want to hear, but there does not seem to be a definite answer, only theories. From Lostpedia (emphasis mine): Soon after Desmond crashed on the island, Penny began searching for him. At some point, she managed to learn about the island, but the extent of her knowledge, and where it came from, is unknown. ("The Constant") Then ...

Well it never been explained in the show, how the Others got their wealth. One can only assume with the mystic power of the island granting it to Jacob as the protector of the Island for 2000 years, allowing Jacob to get out from the Island, recruiting various people and accumulating wealth through various means necessary, which is also not explain in the ...

It is indeed never answered, but I think given the fact that Yemi (Mr. Eko's brother)'s body was in the Nigerian plane, and then disappeared, shows that MiB probably moved Christians body somewhere else in order to freak out Jack. One good question is why didn't he do that with Locke? Maybe he didn't have the opportunity, maybe he wanted to be discovered at ...

As far as I am aware this was never answered in the show. There are a bunch of theories about Christian's body on the LOST wikipedia web page. Notably here is one of the most common theories: During the crash, Christian's body was ejected from the coffin. The ultimate evidence is the sport shoes (possibly JackĀ“s) we can see hanging in a tree, in the first ...

For me, it's clear that it was indeed MiB. We see the mysterious man in there when Ben and Locke make their first visit, along with a short shot of "the eye". The next time we see the cabin, we see Christian Shepard in there along with "the eye", this is in S4E1 when Hurley runs into the moving cabin. We know from S6E13 that MiB was taking the form of ...

Another part of it was also "re-creating" the conditions of Oceanic 815. But it had everything to do with the Lamp Post being a place that find the limited window of opportunity to get back to the island.
