For fan theories about these unanswered questions, see: Alexandra Rousseau/Theories
  • Was she taken by the Others because she has the same abilities implied about Walt?
  • Was she injected, like Aaron was?
  • Why did she help Claire escape from the medical station? ("Maternity Leave")
    • If it's because she doesn't agree with what the Others are doing, then why does she feel this way?

For fan theories about these unanswered questions, see: Benjamin Linus/Theories
  • Why didn't he escape through the vents when he had the chance? ("Lockdown")
  • What, if any, was his relationship with the real Henry Gale?
  • Did he kill the Real Henry Gale?
  • Why did he tell Locke nothing would happen if he did not push the button, when clearly something *does* happen? Is that not a risky psychological game to be playing? Alternatively, did he want the System Failure to happen? ("Dave")
  • Was everything that happened to him in the Swan part of an incredibly subtle ploy? It seems strange that an apparently high-ranking Other would get caught in a net.
  • If Ben wanted to capture Jack (as his surgeon) and Kate and Sawyer (to make jack cooperate), why did Tom not do so during their first encounter? Did he not yet know that Jack was a spinal surgeon, or that Kate and Sawyer possessed other qualities useful to the Others? ("The Hunting Party")
    • As revealed in "Exposé", Ben knew Jack was a spinal surgeon a few days before this meeting. Did Tom not take Jack, Kate, and Sawyer because it would involve taking Locke as well? Ms. Klugh did tell Michael he was not to bring anyone other than those on the list.
  • Why does he look calm when Oceanic 815 crashes, and the discharge occurs? ("A Tale of Two Cities")
  • Did he plan to be caught by the Losties?
  • What is his connection to the DHARMA initiative?
  • Does he know of his parents, or is he just like the other kids that are being captured by The Others? (He has been on the island his whole life.)
  • What is his connection to Juliet?
  • Why does he claim to be Alex's father?
  • How has he been on the Island his whole life--did he end up there due to a crash, or was he born there?
  • What is his status in the Others' hierarchy? Is he really the leader?

  • Desmond was injecting himself with the pneumatic injector and CR_4-81516-23_42 vial when the Hatch was opened by John Locke by using dynamite, however where did this supply go? Desmond probably had enough vials for two people (him and his partner). Why did no one find these when they inhabited the Swan? It is doubtful that Desmond took the medicine with him since he fled the Swan so quickly, seeming to take nothing with him. ("Man of Science, Man of Faith")


Infrastructure

There are many things about the Island that seem to be assumed and have not been investigated:

  • Electricity: Where does the power in the various DHARMA Stations come from?
  • Water: In the Swan, the Staff and (at least) The Hydra there is running water. Where is the catch tank or well, pumps, purification, and so on?
  • Waste: Where do things that get flushed go?
  • Communications: What exactly is DharmaTel? Where do the Video surveillance cables go? How extensive is the PA speaker system on Hydra Island? What about the inter-computer links?
