After they died, the main characters created a shared realm within which to find each other. They initially forgot post-crash events and imagined new situations for themselves, but they gradually awoke to their previous lives. Mild deja vu, pain, unconsciousness and brushes with death sparked initial memories. Eventually, each character awoke fully after interacting with something specific, often a loved one.

Trivia

  • Of the people in the church, only Rose, Bernard, Penny, Libby, and Boone do not have their awakenings shown on-screen.
  • Only Locke is seen awakening without coming into contact with a person or object.
  • Ben and Desmond are the only characters seen to have brief flashes while not having their full awakenings shown on-screen.
  • Only Jack is seen coming into contact with two sources that induce flashes, namely Kate and Christian's coffin.
  • While many of the characters awaken through physical contact with a loved one, several characters are seen touching people they loved during their lives without awakening. For instance, Locke kissed Helen Norwood, Faraday and Charlotte shook each others hand, and Sayid came into contact with Nadia.
