35 Subplots left unresolved

18 real plots left unanswered

Now in a recent interview a writer revealed to his buddy that:

I was watching football with one of them, [and] I was telling them how much I loved the show. I’m like “how are you going to pay all this stuff off?” And he looked at me and goes “we’re not.” And I go, “What do you mean you’re not?” He said, “We literally just think of the weirdest, most fucked up thing and write it, and we’re never going to pay it off.” And I look at him and I’m like “that’s such bullshit! You are completely fucking with the audience.” I want to bring a class-action lawsuit on behalf of everyone who watched “Lost” all those years.

This really sucks. All that time people spent analyzing everything and they writers were just bullshitting us all along. Unbelievable!!

A few other question and answers from the writers are below:

Is Juliet friend or foe of the castaways?
“Her agenda is more in line with the castaways than we originally suspected, but that does not mean she is not sinister, says Lindelof. FYI, the Feb 7 episode is all about Juliet”

The Hatch imploded according to Locke. Case Closed?
Nope, says lindelof. “Definetly more to this story. You will get a better picture of waht happened when Desmond turned the fail-safe key.”

How will Sawyer and Kate espcape the Others island?
Of course, the showrunners wouldnt tell us – but executive producer Carelton Cuse says “You heard correctly: The others do have a submarine.”

Who is Jacob, and why is Jack not on his list?
The answer lies further down in the ongoing story, says Cuse. A clue? Lindelof reminds fans that character names in Lost are not assigned without reason, YES! that is a clue.

Eko Final Words “You’re Next” and Kate’s Boobs

Thoughts on tonights episode

– Very crazy.
– I think the Others are hiding from that island which has something crazy about it (ie the black smoke)
– I’m gonna miss Eko, he was pretty cool, but you can tell his story and backstory was drying up.
– Locke is going to find the other hatches, slowly.
– The previews for next week clearly show Sawyer and Kate making out. (There is also a nice cleavage shot at the end which I’m sure someone will post in a few minutes)
Ben is the one with the tumor and revealed his plan to make Jack operate on him. Also mentions Jack foils his plan and Juliet tells Jack via a video that he should kill Ben during the surgery. I don’t think Jack’s conscience will let him do it.
– Ben believes in God. Says Jack’s plane crash was a God send. That pretty much shoots down all the Lost Theories that the Others are in charge and made everyone come here on purpose, unless he was lying.
– That cheeseburger looked good.

Lost Questions Finally Answered

A few of the biggest questions surrounding Lost have been answered. All summer long, The Lost Experience game has been going on which promised fans that if they stuck with it and made it all the way through the game some important questions would be answered about the show such as what the mysterious numbers mean, and what Dharma really is.

These answers have been revealed in the form of a video which was released in short clips. Those clips have been put together and can be seen in its entirety below.

A summary of the video reveals that the numbers are in fact the Valenzetti Equation, which we reported on our Valenzetti Equation Explanation Theory page. The equation is a formula which represents a type of countdown until a deadly event happens but you can read all of the details here.

Dharma is found to be an acronym for:

Department of
Hueristics
And
Research on
Material

Applications

Dharma (the others) was originally sent to the island to “change the core value” of the Valenzetti Equation, or 30% of the worlds population would be wiped out, but they failed to do so. The hatches were built for them to conduct their research and all of their food and materials needed would be dropped off by helicopter.

How they were going to change the core value of the equation wasn’t revealed nor was it revealed why they are still there and why the Losties are on the island. Season 3 starts October 4th in the US and is sure to answer these questions and more.

Meaning of the Numbers in Lost Revealed!

The Lost Experience, the ongoing online “alternative reality” game that promies to help fans solve some of the series mysteries, says that those who complete the third phase of the challenge will learn the meaning of the numerical sequence 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42.

I haven’t finised the 3rd phase yet but if you do, please let us know what you find out!

Get ‘Lost Diaries’ via Cellphone

Get ready for Hurley the filmmaker in The Lost Diaries, a new series of mobile-phone episodes, or “mobisodes.”

In a preview shown to more than 4,000 Lost fans Saturday at Comic-Con, Hurley (Jorge Garcia) finds a video camera, which he uses to record events on the island. Plans are for 13 two-minute mobisodes on Verizon this fall, but the early going has been slow. “It has been hard to get it off the ground, because we don’t want them to be … lame,” executive producer Damon Lindelof told a filled ballroom.

The video clips, including previews of extras in the upcoming Lost Season 2 DVD, were accompanied by Season 3 tidbits from Garcia, Lindelof and three other Lost representatives: Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) and executive producers Carlton Cuse and Bryan Burk.

Here’s a little of what to look for in the upcoming season (premiering Oct. 4), which will be split into two parts to eliminate breaks in continuity caused by reruns:

” The first six episodes, before a 13-week break, “will look a little like a miniseries,” Cuse said. Lindelof added a tease: “Something happens midway through the year that will fry everybody’s brain.”

” J.J. Abrams, who created Lost with Lindelof, will be more hands-on this season, co-writing the premiere  titled “A Tale of Two Cities”  and “hopefully” directing the first episode after the break, Cuse said.

” Kate (Evangeline Lilly) will get romantically involved. “Within the first six episodes, she’ll be officially making her selection,” Lindelof said.

” Desmond (Emmy nominee Henry Ian Cusick), the man in the hatch, will be back.

” The show will reveal more about the identity and history of The Others.

” There will be more adventure elements, which should please Locke and the actor who plays him, Terry O’Quinn, after a season largely spent typing on the hatch computer. “Terry said, ‘I want a knife in my hand again,'” said Lindelof, who replied: “You’ll get your knife back.”

” The writers will get back to the off-island world, introduced in May by Desmond’s girlfriend. “We’re laying the seeds for a whole new element,” Cuse said.

” A staged questioner said she was “Rachel Blake,” a character in The Lost Experience, the show’s online companion. She alerted fans to website hansoexposed.com.

Lost is Solved

So the story behind “Lost” is now solved:

In 1975 the UN artificially constructed the island for use as a military base. It was later used as a test site for research involving mental health and accelerated learning.
The UN’s aim was to use advanced computer technology to solve the world’s energy crisis.

The plane crash never happened but the survivors’ have been brainwashed into believing that it did. The survivors of flight 815 are actually living in a virtual reality simulation and the ‘monster’ is in fact the result of a time travel experiment which went wrong.

There are two groups of Others. One group are the results of a human cloning experiment and the other are survivors of a ship wreck which occured several years ago.

The ‘incident’ mentioned in the orientation film refers to a series of killings which occured when several test subjects were driven mad after being administered an experimental mind expanding drug and pressing the button every 108 minutes is necessary as part of an ongoing time travel experiment.

The numbers are an encoded form of the formula which makes interdimensional travel possible.

Actually, that isn’t it. It was generated randomly. If you want your own “Lost” solution, visit the Lost Theory Generator for more possibilities. What is scary is how good these random theories are. How many of you believed the above theory before finding out it was random?
