  2. More appropriate for another article.
  3. Illogical or previously disproven.
  4. Proven by canon source, and moved to main article.
  5. Speculative and lacking any evidence to support arguments.
  6. Responding to another theory (use discussion page instead).
  • This does not include responses that can stand alone as its own theory.
  • Usage of an indented bullet does not imply the statement is a response.

See the Lostpedia theory policy for more details.


  • He is the (foster) brother Locke mentioned in "Deus Ex Machina".
  • Due to physical similarities, there may be a familial connection between Mike and the Other named Tom or Dharma-person Horace.


  • If he is Mike, it is possible he was part of the Dharma Initiative's utopian society study, or even the meteorological study, since he is clearly a successful farmer and one of the "family leaders" in Locke's flashback.
  • The fact that he tells Eddie he has "excellent taste in music" upon seeing his T-shirt could have been a sly comment to the fact that he was a member of Geronimo Jackson.
  • In "The Hunting Party", Tom said "He's a very special boy" about Walt. In "Further Instructions", Mike similarly says "He's a very special guy" about Locke.
