General Observations about the Lost Characters

Over the last couple days I have become hooked on the show Lost. I always heard people talking about it with such enthusiasm that it was near impossible for me not to check it out. So I went to my local video store and proceeded to watch disk 1-6 of season 1. Once that was done I obtained all of season 2, up through the most current episode and watched them all, so I am now caught up with everyone and left hanging for the next new episodes. Watching them back to back to back and many more backs, I was able to see a lot of things about the people on the island and thought Id list them out. Maybe theres some stuff you didnt catch.

1. None of the people on the plane should have been on the plane.

Examples:
– Kate – she was going to leave the guys house in the middle of the nite, he caught her and talked her into staying. He then turned her in the next morning to the Marshall guy.
– Charlie – His brother tried to keep him there to help with his drug addiction. He wouldnt listen and said he had a plane to catch.
– Jack – The lady at the desk said she wasnt allowed to let the coffin on the plane, but he talked her into it and he got on with it.
– Sun – She was going to leave Jin, but changed her mind at the last minute and got on.
– Claire – She was going to give the baby to some people, but changed her mind when the pen wouldnt work, talked to the pyschic guy, and he gave her the plane ticket to go give the baby to another family(even though he knew it was going to crash and was making sure she took care of the baby like he said she had to).
– Sayid – Government had plane tickets for him to leave the same day, but he said to change it so he could claim the body of his friend that killed himself

There are plenty more of these but you get the point that they all had a reason not to get on the plane but they still did.

2. All the people on the island have something wrong with them that was fixed by being on the island.

Examples:
– Rose – Whatever was killing her was gone
– Locke – He can walk again
– Charlie – Had a drug addiction, now hes not using anymore
– Hurley – Crazy and fat. Now hes changing
– Jin & Sun – Jin couldnt have babies. Now Sun is pregnant..though im not sure that is really his or if its her english teachers. But she said she hasnt been with anyone else.

These are all I can think of right now for this one.

3. They all lost something or someone.

Examples:
– Jack – his wife left him.
– Anna Lucia or whatever the girl cops name is – Lost her baby in the shooting.
– Locke – his dad and girlfriend left him.
– Claire – her boyfriend left.
– Charlie – his band broke up.
– Kate – lost her boyfriend in the car wreck.
– Michael – his sons mother died.
– Hurley – lost his friend because of the money.
– Shannon – her dad died and her step mom deserted her.
– Sawyer – his parents both died.
– Sayide – Lost the woman he loved.

Im sure there are more of these as well, but you get the point.

If youve noticed anything else that Ive missed, feel free to leave them in the comments.

  1. #3? I dont think this has anything to do with it. Do you know anyone in real life that has not lost something/someone?! Im sure you yourself have.

  2. Yes its true for everyone in real life, but they made a point to show it in detail for each character in each of their flashbacks

  3. I wouldnt say they all have been fixed.

    What about Sayid, Claire and the rest? How have they been fixed?

    And like others have said, everyone has lost something.

    Come check out our podcast, well be talking about the new episode tonight.

    The new podcast will go up tomorrow!

  4. I agree the havent all been fixed yet. But the stories are continuing to come in, and you learn more about their background and history with each show. It may just be something Im looking to much into, or it might be that their stories havent been revealed completly yet.

    Well just have to wait and see.

  5. I beielve that you are right in they all lost something sometime in there life. As for Locke, his father came back into his life a and he gave up a kidney to his father and then his father did not want nothen to do with him, and Locke wanted to know why and that took a toll on his girlfriend. I believe that they all have to truly forgive themselves befor the can be saved or go on to a differen place.
