My really big questions...

Post by MollyCocktail on Wed May 21, 2008 8:09 pm

I've heard a hundred times over that the key to completly understanding LOST is in The Pilot.
I've searched and searched but can't see the forest through the trees I guess and while Season 4 has brought me satisfaction, I still think I'm missing something that is right before my eyes.

So I've compiled a list of the most compelling (in my opinion) questions that I would absolutly love to have a dialogue opened about.

1) What happened to Alvar Hanso?
2) What happened to the DeGroots?
3) What is The Island? Is it a hub for space/time? Or was space/time manipulated to protect it?
4) Who is Richard Alpert really?
5) What is the Smoke Monster?
6) What does it mean to be chosen by The Island?
7) Where do the food drops come from?
Cool What is the purpose of Jacob's cabin moving?
9) Why would Aaron be better off living with Kate?
10) Why is Jack such a little stinker?

I think my head just exploded.

Too...many...hard...unanswered...questions...in...one...thread! Hahaha Neutral

I can't wait to read people's answers though. I love thinking about all these questions and the possibilities.

Molly the following is taken from Lostpedia persistent rumours section

One rumor claims that there was still a major hint or a mystery hidden
in the Pilot episode which none of the fans have discovered thus far.

  • Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof explicitly referred to this as a "false rumor" in the April 16, 2007 podcast,
    and gave a rundown on all the big mysteries from the Pilot and when and
    how those had been answered. The only real remaining mystery would be
    Charlie's last line from the end of part 2, asking "Guys, where are
    we?".

As for the rest of your questions. Yikes!!!

1) What happened to Alvar Hanso?

Last I heard he was still head of Hanso, just keeping his head down.

2) What happened to the DeGroots?

Maybe they are Adam and Eve, but more likely they're aiding Widmore find the Island.

3) What is The Island? Is it a hub for space/time? Or was space/time manipulated to protect it?

The Island is a geographical fluke of nature where wonderful things are possible that are not possible anywhere else.

4) Who is Richard Alpert really?

A crewman from the Black Rock.

5) What is the Smoke Monster?

A security system designed to remove any undesirable persons from the Island.

6) What does it mean to be chosen by The Island?

That you are of the correct spiritual and mental fibre to bring greater substance to the interconnected tapestry of the Island.

7) Where do the food drops come from?

The Orchid.

Cool What is the purpose of Jacob's cabin moving?

A microcosm of how the Island moves; same phenomena on a smaller scale. The purpose is perhaps a side-effect in as much as there is no purpose for it, it's just something it does.

9) Why would Aaron be better off living with Kate?

He probably isn't.

10) Why is Jack such a little stinker?

He isn't. He just likes a little drink and drugs to get by.

Since AC has already done a much better job of answering your questions than I probably could have, I will take a less-than-serious approach to satisfying your curiosity:

1) What happened to Alvar Hanso? Has become personal spiritual advisor to Tom Cruise and a grand poohbah of Scientology.

2) What happened to the DeGroots? Living in Boca Raton FLorida selling time-shares to retirees

3) What is The Island? Is it a hub for space/time? Or was space/time manipulated to protect it? Neither. It is a Disney ride gone WAAAAAy bad.

4) Who is Richard Alpert really? Dick Clark, really!

5) What is the Smoke Monster? Hurley farts which have achieved conciousness.

6) What does it mean to be chosen by The Island? You're next in the barrel. (pm me for that rude joke if you don't know it)

7) Where do the food drops come from? Kroger super markets

Cool What is the purpose of Jacob's cabin moving? Trying to keep ahead of fluctuating housing values during bad economic times.

9) Why would Aaron be better off living with Kate? He likes being pursued by law enforcement agencies

10) Why is Jack such a little stinker? Because he didn't get the pony and the hydrocodone prescription he wanted for his 9th birthday,

I have had the same idea about Richard Alpert being a crewman for The Black Rock, of course that begs more questions about Magnus Hanso. I've always believed that Magnus is Jacob.
I hope that turns out to be true as I'd very much like to see a flashback involving Hanso and Alpert's first arrival to The Island.

And I want to smck myself for not realizing that the food comes from The Orchid.
How daft am I?!

Thanks for your help AC!

Those aren't facts, Molly! Just my best guesses!

For all I know Dharma Food Drops could come from Jacob's own personal light aircraft!

Well as guesses go, I'd say these are very well thought out.
