LOST’s formula began as ‘juxtaposing events in the past to the put the present in proper context.’ As the show went on, either by flashback or flashforward, events take on a new light under new information. We think any given event has one meaning when we’ll find out later it had many.

There is less than one day until Lost airs, the excitement is almost too much to handle! We will learn the answers to questions which have left us puzzling for nine months, the biggest among them is “Where in the hell is that island?” Ben successfully “moved” the island, but what does that even mean? Did … Read more
Hello everybody! I’m new here and thought I’d introduce myself. I’m Nate and have been a reader here for a long time and am happy to be a part of the community! Just to be clear, I haven’t seen the first two episodes of Season 5 like DocArzt has. My speculation on the opening of the fifth season is purely that-speculation…
Although Season 4 of Lost ended months ago, the lingering questions remain. I am particularly interested in the significance of The Tempest and the island’s volcano. Bear with me as I weave a few theories that intertwine both by applying geology and geography to the overall Lost canon and mythology.
This has been bugging me for a while, and as ridiculous as it may seem — I had to just get it out there. There may be an overlooked clue in the frozen donkey wheel sequence that relates to season five of LOST. Keep in mind this is all theory, there are no spoilers in … Read more
The official obituary of Jeremy Bentham (John Locke’s off-island pseudonym) mentions that he had a son. [Yes, I am aware that the producers have said that the obit was merely a prop, so these theories are innocent conjecture.] No one attended Locke’s funeral; however, he had returned from the island and was probably operating in … Read more
UGO Asked me to come up with some ruminations on LOST’s remaining big mysteries. Are there any solvable now? Any good theories? I gave it my best shot in the limited space, now let’s hear YOUR theories to these, or other, mysteries that may be out there. Read The Article HERE at UGO
This has nothing to do with any of the current acronyms (ARG/DWY/OGR), but I thought it might be fun to take a closer look at Richard Alpert and what his character represents to Lost. Let’s begin with a brief introduction to a few terms and an integral person… PANCHEN LAMA: The second highest ranking Lama … Read more
Given that the word ‘Panopticon’ entered the vernacular of many LOST fans after it was discussed at Comic-Con last week (when Damon and Carlton verified it as one of the reasons that Locke was given the pseudonym Jeremy Bentham), I thought it was time to delve into the real Bentham’s design and analyze how it … Read more
Hey guys, Tapdawg here! So I’ve been stuck on one comment from Damon and Carlton at Comic Con. They said that for this season both flashbacks and flash-forwards would be used for story telling purposes but they also alluded to a third time of story-telling device which we haven’t seen really. They gave us an … Read more
As Locke was watching the Orchid video, we hear Halliwax warn “Now for your own safety and the safety of those around you, metallic objects must never… (warps and distorts) be placed within the vault.” I was wondering. Did Ben place all the metal objects into the vault to 1) Cause a reaction that … Read more
There is no doubt that most of the fans of Lost want Locke to realize his destiny. But a major theme in Lost is the acceptance of that destiny, without letting ego rule a characters decisions. And Locke has a really big ego. His character, as written on the show, has been dealt some terrible … Read more
So why does Jack have to cart Locke’s carcass back to the island? My theory is because it does not belong in the universe that the characters are in. Proponents of a time/space injury sitting silently at the core of LOST’s overarching mystery will appreciate the notion that the presence of mass that shouldn’t exist, … Read more
So the “Frozen Donkey Wheel” has come and gone, and the reactions seem to range from delighted to bemused to downright venomous. Personally, I thought it was awesome. From where I’m sitting, the wheel was a big twist in the regards that the Orchid station, as it turned out, really wasn’t responsible for moving the … Read more
The phone call was another one of the Ghost Whispers that was reversed. Here is a clear version of the call.
Duality has been a major role on the show since the first episode aired. You may remember John Locke teaching young Walt about the game of backgammon, “Two players. Two sides. One is light and one side is dark.” This meaning, of course, the science vs. fate or Jack vs. Locke storyline.
Here is my prediction on what we can see happen during the finale. And note, I have not read any of the spoilers floating around the internet, not even the “spoilers lite” that appear here on Doc Arzt. I have based my list on ideas that have come to mind during the two week … Read more
In his current article on Entertainment Weekly online, Doc Jensen postulates “The Land of Oz is a magical place. It is a land of witches with wands and charmed slippers, of walking, talking tin men, scarecrows, and lions. But it is also a place where not everything is as enchanted as it seems. Indeed, it … Read more
The only spoiler in this article is this: Damon said that we can expect to see another “Purple Sky Event” in the finale, and he used the word “seismic” to describe the finale. That having been said, here’s my prediction for the finale: I think Moving the Island will involve using the Orchid to teleport … Read more
