Last shot

Pilot Part 1 Pilot Dead
In the very last shot, there is something strange wrapped around the tree branch directly next to Seth's waist. WHAT IS THAT?! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mrmagic522 (talkcontribs) 2009-05-02T21:33:34.

Unanswered Question

Many posted it before, and I think it's a legitimate question: Why did Jack wake up in the jungle instead of the beach? I never heard an answer to this yet and it seems to me quite mysterious, actually reminiscent to Ben in the shape of things to come.--Asian_Dawn 19:56, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

    • I believe that it would be because he never actually experienced the crash. I believe Jack was flashed/warped/teleported, whatever lingo pleases you, onto the Island rather than flopping onto. He confirms blacking-out and not being able to remember the crash, I think its because he hasn't actually crashed.Aerieformyhead 19:37, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
  • This is a theory: Jack made a plane (out of leaves) in this episode. He threw it away. This happens later to Ajira Flight 316 on the Hydra island.--Station7 19:48, September 24, 2009 (UTC)
  • For all we know, loads of people landed in the jungle and then, like Jack, ran to the beach. --CooperSimply 17:05, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
  • I believe Jack got flung off the plane and landed in the light, causing him to be transported there, just like he did in 'The End.' This might be intentional by Jacob.--Joeymo23 02:00, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Main Picture

Although this current picture is featuring Jack, I think that a picture that depicts the opening moments of the entire series would be more fitting. What do you guys think?  ODK  Talk  Sandbox  17:59, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Proposed main picture

  • I like the current one better.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  19:51, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
  • There's a mysteriousness to number two that's attractive. I like the new one.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 20:13, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
  • I like the current one. That said, I think it would be nice to have an opening moment picture. Is it possible to get a shot when we're looking down at Jack while he's on his back still? I would support a new photo; I just wish it were a better one.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dahlia (talkcontribs) . (Because I forgot to sign) Dhalia 21:02, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
    • Other than the one on the main page?--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 20:57, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
      • If there is already one on the main page why do we need another one like it? Dhalia 21:22, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment If anyone wants to use a new picture for the episode, please make sure that the screenshot doesn't have the ABC watermark on it like the current suggestion.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  21:19, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
  • How about one of Jack's eye opening or the bit of Jack lying in the jungle? --CooperSimply 17:07, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
  • A picture of Jack's open eye would be nice. --Jay Low 17:15, May 24, 2010 (UTC)
    • Agreed. Have the pilot part 1 be the picture with jack's eye open and let the final episode be jack's eye closed.--Kriegster 02:01, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Jack's Eye

(I'm new here and new to wiki's, so I hope I'm doing this right)

Has anyone else noticed the reflection in Jack's eye in the opening scene? Freeze frame it as soon as he opens his eye before his pupil dilates. In the reflection of the pupil part, there appear to be two men. The one on the left has a long face with a mohawk. The one on the right appears closer with a large, long mustache. It's all in black and white. Maybe just my imagination. With the close-up, I figured that there might be some hidden clue here. Even if I'm wrong with what I'm seeing, there DOES appear to be something there - just a bit difficult to make out what it is. --LostFool 01:03, 8 June 2009

  • (UTC)My guess is -- if there are people in the reflection -- that they're members of the crew. However, can you get us a screen cap?--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 13:56, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Sorry, I don't have that capability at the moment - hoped that someone else might investigate and post one. What I'm seeing does not appear to be a camera setup, etc. - looks like a scene from an old movie.--LostFool 14:31, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
  • I took one.

When the monster arrives at the cockpit, there is a bright white light coming through the windows, which is different from the dark clouds that we are used to seeing from "The Monster" that we have become familiar with over the years. I've seen theories that there are 2 "Monsters", one being the dark one that we have seen that represents Jacob's enemy and another monster that embodies Jacob himself. If this is true, Jacob's "Monster" would probably be white and this might be its first appearance. Some other possible appearances of Jacob's "Monster" are when John Locke sees something in "Walkabout" and when Kate and Juliet are hiding and the "Monster" initiates a series of white, picture-flash-like flashes when it sees Juliet.

Black objects are bloopers?

I cannot find any reference to the claim that "This was later refuted by the producers and explained as an artifact of poor CGI effects (which should have shown the object radiating out from the turbine after the explosion, instead of approaching the turbine beforehand)'". Although the producers have clearly indicated the objects are not the smoke monster, I have not seen anything indicating they are a production error, or for that matter, that they are not important. Either a reference to the producers refutation should be given, or the mention of these objects should be moved to the "Unanswered questions" section of this page. --Gunzour 02:26, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

I'm reasonably certain it was in a podcast, although I couldn't tell you which one. Even so, the fact is that we don't have anything to indicate that its significance, meaning an unanswered question would be a stretch. Especially since the producers have said that there are no unanswered questions remaining from the pilot.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  03:09, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

I'm fascinated to read this Jimbo! I'd like to know how MIB made the 'dinosaur footfall'-type sounds near end of episode. By repeatedly dropping/slamming the cockpit into the ground?

Something is wrong with Sawyer

Production notes say Sawyer has no speaking lines, cultural references say he called the island Monkey Island. Which is true? Hawkdeath 08:44, April 29, 2010 (UTC)

  • According to the transcript Sawyer says the Monkey Island line, so have removed the production note bit Hawkdeath 10:13, April 29, 2010 (UTC)

Article Image

since i'm a huge fan of symmetry, if we're going to make the image for "The End" be jack's eye closing (the final shot of the series), can we make the image for this episode the shot of Jack's eye opening? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bassrockindrew (talkcontribs) 2010-05-24T00:42:35.

  • Pictogram voting support I like it. I thought it was already the eye. LOST had symmetry with the eye, so it seems appropriate we have it. -- Clayburn talk contributions email 01:53, May 25, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support as per great reasoning made by clayburn. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  01:55, May 25, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support I agree. My votes go for the open eye for "Pilot, Part 1" and closed eye for "The End".--Jonahwriter 02:18, May 25, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting oppose 1x01 begins with Jack, but the finale is about the group. The eye picture is fine here, but not at the end.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 02:38, May 25, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support Yes, it only makes sense that the first and last images of LOST should correspond to the images on the pages for the first and last episodes. Shawn4168 15:26, May 26, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support I came to this page to suggest that very thing. Symmetry is good.--Frakkin Toaster 06:10, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting oppose The original picture was in place for years, and was perfectly fine. Why fix something that's not broken? --LeoChris 18:52, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support The eye, definitely. It is the most fitting to have the first episode represented by the first image of the series, especially since it's such a significant and symbolic one. I like the current shot, but it's nothing more than a random picture of Jack. Andris22 21:33, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment It's not a random picture of Jack; it a picture him just as he realizes he's on a seashore and before he sees the wreck.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 21:45, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support If the closed eye is going to be the image for "The End", I think it would be a good idea to make the image for "Pilot, Part 1" Jack's open eye. --Footmax 10:17, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting oppose I'm against the eye in either episode. For the finale, the eye is inappropriate because the picture should try to include the whole group. We have a great church pic that does just that. But at least that image would be of a closed eye. This episode's would be of an open eye. A couple dozens episodes begin on open eyes. Even more feature close-ups of open eyes. The image of an eye is iconic to Lost but NOT to the pilot. --- Balk Of Fametalk 11:42, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting oppose as per BalkOfFame --LeoChris 17:09, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support 8-4 is a consensus, no? TheJinjaNinja 00:29, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting oppose Keep as is. AluminumFoilist 01:26, May 31, 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support I like the symetry and eye are the "main symbol" in the show
  • Pictogram voting oppose As LeoChris said, nothing is wrong with the image of Jack on the beach. Since people want the image for "The End" to be his closed eye, they suddenly want to change this. This current image is fine and The End should most definitely be the church image, as a closed eye is unattractive and it's a various-centric episode, not just Jack. Keep the image for this episode as is. (Kdc2 03:09, May 31, 2010 (UTC))
  • Pictogram voting oppose Congratulations on now bookending the entire series with ugly main images. Hatchbanger 15:28, May 31, 2010 (UTC)

Change Article Image to Jack's Open Eye

Does anybody think that this article's image should be changed to the shot of Jack's open eye to mirror the article image for The End? (Closed eye shot). --Bluevane 12:49, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting oppose No. The current is fine. The End shouldn't be his closed eye either. (Kdc2 14:18, May 31, 2010 (UTC))
