The Others referred the the entire area around the door as a decoy village. Surely that puts to rest any theories that this was a real station. --{{User:BalkOfFame/sig}} 05:50, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

I agree. However I don't think the Others just made up a logo, took some metal doors and slapped the logo on there. I think it does belong to a station, but we just never saw it. The others took the doors off whatever station it was, and brought them there as the decoy. --[[User:LOST-The Cartographer|LOST-The Cartographer]] 18:25, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Kaini for tidying up the theories. :) -- Nusentinsaino 10:51, 9 May 2006 (EST)

no probs mate :)
i have no doubt that more stuff concerning this will surface in the coming weeks. it would be nice if everyone could keep this page spoiler free... yeah, i know it's sort of a big spoiler in itself, but it's out there now, and anyway it's pretty nonspecific compared to some stuff that people have stuck in the wiki --kaini 20:00, 9 May 2006 (PDT)

Yes, i know it's a huge spoiler... Should we use the inviso-text for the entire article? It could make it look ugly... --    Nusentinsaino     talk    contribs    email   02:14, 10 May 2006 (EST)

That would look horrible, agreed. The spoiler template helps; if you wanted to be more extreme, you could use that forum favourite, a page of blank text. Moot point really, because the episode's airdate is so close now. --kaini 19:54, 15 May 2006 (PDT)

Agreed.     Nusentinsaino     talk    contribs    email   22:56, 15 May 2006 (EST)

Edit

Has anyone noticed this logo looks different than anyother Dharma logos? Look at the picture. See the outer parts of the logo have a cut through them?--JPB. T. C. E.

FormattingEdit

I reformatted the pictures that someone reverted. I think it looks better like this (left and right) considering the amount of text we have. Otherwise, we have a line of pictures on the right with no text next to it. -- LOSTonthisdarnisland 06:10, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

Why does the formatting keep getting reverted or changed to a pig's breakfast of images all over the screen with split text sections and big blank spaces. Please leave a formatting that looks attractive! -- LOSTonthisdarnisland 09:06, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

I added my update of the text part again. I hope you didn't mean to delete that. Regarding the format, I think we should cut down on the images so we can keep them on one side. It's not looking too good right now. If you really want to have a lot of images maybe a solution then is to create seperate pages for the camp or the door of the station and post them there. Peace out. --Peephole 18:00, 21 May 2006 (PDT)

Added a gallery instead. Thought it looked fine before, but tired of reverting your changes to my formatting. LOSTonthisdarnisland 18:11, 21 May 2006 (PDT)
this is much better. there were too many images on the page, and some of them were only replicating information. --kaini 18:14, 21 May 2006 (PDT)

Ooh splendid idea. --Peephole 03:52, 22 May 2006 (PDT)

Structures Edit

I don't see two kinds of structures/dwellings - only the yurts. I commented in the talk page for Three Minutes that the frame for the yurts is of high quality and doesn't match the primitive look of the canvas covering. This is further evidence that the Others are only pretending to be living so primitively. --Mramsey 10:14, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

I also only see one kind of structure - the yurts. The frames of the yurts look sturdily made, but not exceptionally so. Having built one in the past, I can say for a fact that they're reasonably easy to make given a pile of lath strips, some leather strips, and a hand drill. They are amazingly strong structures - there's no center pole, but you can stand on top of one. --Doc 10:19, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

Photos such as this show some nice shiny hardware. The lathe sticks look nicely finished and the rafters are fresh lumber. Maybe they antiqued things before filming - I wasn't watching close enough during the show. --Mramsey 10:28, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

Are we analysing this too closely? Perhaps the structure's inside (including the hardware) was not meant to be seen in the show. LOSTonthisdarnisland 10:40, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

The metal frame, which is seen in the interior picture, was also visible in the scene when the camera was panning across the Others' village at night. --Chesteadman 10:34, 25 May 2006 (PDT)

Possibly. Anyone remember details from inside the yurt during the scene with Ms. Klugh, Michael and Walt? Certainly could have been shot in a set somewhere else. --Mramsey 11:02, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

The interior picture linked above has some interesting features. The roof appears to be lined with bubble-wrap, and there's a steel cable with a weight tied to the center roof ring (presumably to help keep the roof from blowing off). On looking closer, the lath strips that make up the walls (rivited for strength) appear to be just wet rather than finished with stain or oil.

On the whole, I don't think the interior was meant to be shown on screen (I think I'd have remembered the cable at the center). More likely the interior shots were done on a set. --Doc 11:19, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

Perhaps we should leave the speculation about new v. old for the theory section, rather than the article. -- LOSTonthisdarnisland 18:42, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

Live Together, Die Alone seems to prove the camp was a hoax on the part of the Others. When Sayid opens the door of one of the yurts, we see the same lathe wall frame as in the set photos. The cable isn't there and we don't see the bubble wrap on the ceiling - those were certainly set construction details to be hidden before shooting. --Mramsey 07:03, 26 May 2006 (PDT)

Comment left by "Mr eko" in the Theories sectionEdit

when walt said their not who they say they are ms clue said do u want me to put u in the room posibly the actural name of the door(sorry for my spelling)the room is a prison for the bad people the captured

I actually thought this as well. Though its probably not the station's real purpose or anything, the little room behind the door might be where they kept Walt while Michael was in the camp (hence the armed guard). However, I think the actual hatch doors themselves are probably from somewhere else on the island, brought to the mountain by the Others to create an elaborate hoax. --Nickb123 12:42, 6 June 2006 (PDT)

KnockingEdit

There was knocking right before Sayid opens the door--CaptainInsano

  • It was Out of Show Music. --Sauron18 13:42, May 31 2006
Then why did it say [Knocking] in the Closed Captions
Mistake by the Caption writer probably.--Peephole 16:45, 6 June 2006 (PDT)
That would be a huge mistake--CaptainInsano

The Room Edit

Could it be possible that the door leads to the room Ms. Klugh was takling about when she told Walt she would put him in "The room again". Sincerely--Jigsaw 09:49, 1 June 2006 (PDT)

Possibly, personally though I think the room is just the confined space between the door hatches. In my opinion it qualifies for mention in the theories section, but everytime I put it it gets reversed so forget it --Nickb123 06:37, 20 June 2006 (PDT)

Fake Edit

I think it's fake now, but we'll probably know after The Glass Ballerina--Scorpiusdiamond 11:50, 7 October 2006 (PDT)

Portal Edit

Considering the possibility that the Looking Glass station may be the home of some kind of wormhole between the Island and the outside world, isn't it also possible that there is sometimes also some kind of similar portal behind the door? That would explain why it was being guarded, and the portal could have been closed after the Others left, so that Sayid would not find it.

Rename Edit

We don't know the name yet, so why should the article be called for a fan made name. --Wilbraham Williams 09:47, 26 May 2007 (PDT)

  • Disagree- "The Door" is a good name--Phil (talk) 15:43, 28 May 2007 (PDT)
  • No: The Door is fine and is a name accepted amongst many Lost fans, and was actually coined here at Lostpedia --Nickb123 (Talk) 04:27, 29 May 2007 (PDT)
  • Disagree: We've got to refer to it somehow. What, you want the article to be titled "Doorway to a DHARMA Initiative Station That Doesn't Exist, Formerly Referred to as the Door"? I suppose we could call it "Steve". --Doc 10:53, 29 May 2007 (PDT)

Picture Edit

We should probably get a picture of The Door when opened. --JPB. T. C. E. 18:22, 2 June 2008 (PDT)

I know what station the door is: it's the temple.I've got 2 pictures with evidence. how you do on a page?
