• I don't know if you want a picture of the Hatch Door, but here is one--CaptainInsano


Thats good for showing a continuity error. You'll notice in Fire and Water that that hatch door looks more like a shed door (like the Arrow Station's). I'm guessing just a production error, unless there's numerous entrances? --Nickb123 (Talk) 13:41, 3 August 2006 (PDT)
It's all garbage. I don't think there should've been more entrances. They spent ages trying to get into the Hatch when there's a door just a short while away... --SilvaStorm
Yup. I wish I had screencap though cause I really wanna point out this big blooper of it being a shed then a metal door --Nickb123 (Talk) 09:29, 7 August 2006 (PDT)
I totally agree with SilvaStorm. It is quite farfechted. User:Dee4leeds
@Nickb123 - Yeah, that'd be cool to see. I can't remember it! :P
@Dee4leeds - Glad you agree. --SilvaStorm
@Nickb123 - Your right locke walks out of it If i am correct - Dee4leeds 15:50, 23 August 2006 (PDT)
  • Thanks for the pic, Cap, I'm adding it to continuity errors, because I just found the podcast quote where the writers admit that they are busted for this continuity problem, and admit it. --PandoraX 09:52, 24 January 2007 (PST)

Implosion Photo

Can someone post a photo of the hatch post-implosion (from Further Instructions?)

Anybody notice the 3 conduits in the crater of the imploded hatch? User:CJDTrismegistus


Suggested rename to something along the lines of Swan hatch, The Swan Hatch, Station 3 hatch, etc. --SilvaStorm

  • Keep , I think this name serves the purpose, and is more clear than the other names nominated. However, for sake of shortening the article name, for better linking and simplicity, if better names are suggested I may change my vote, but I don't have ideas on better names at the moment.-- 02:31, 23 December 2006 (PST)
  • Keep I think The Hatch (Swan exteerior) is a perfect name. --James W. 18:21, 3 January 2007 (PST)
  • Keep Fine the way it is, and consistent with The ? (Pearl Exterior). --PandoraX 02:14, 17 January 2007 (PST)
  • Rename: to Swan hatch. All the links on the site seem to be unnecessarily verbose: [[The Hatch (Swan exterior)|the Hatch]]. I think [[Swan hatch]] would be more descriptive, and much easier to link to. (I ended up on this talk page because I just ran into this problem when I was correcting a disambiguation link for [[Hatch]]). Dagg 07:14, 17 January 2007 (PST)
Rename: @PandoraX: This page was made before "The ? (Pearl exterior)", which is incorrect anyway, as the marking on the ground above the Pearl is just a circle, like Eko says. --SilvaStorm
  • In the case of the "?", there's enough ambiguity that it's still under debate what that really is. Eko describes that it looked like a circle from above, but he didn't know either. The writers call it a "?" in the podcasts. Many fans call it a "?", and I've never heard of anyone who called it "the circle" (expecting others to know what he meant). So in the cases of unclear references, I think the consensus should be what it is most well-known as (this was the case for Mr. Friendly's page before we knew his name was Tom). In the end, it doesn't matter that much with redirection pages (which would all have to be fixed if they are moved around all the time, and I'd argue in this case, for not a hugely important reason). Just my $0.02, at any rate, not a topic I feel that strongly about, but I am explaining the reason for not renaming stuff on a whim (creates more opportunities for broken or misdirects). When it comes down to it with this page, I think it could easily be merged into Swan, the only reason it isn't is because of length. --PandoraX 08:26, 24 January 2007 (PST)
Rename for above reasons --Blueeagleislander 23:04, 23 January 2007 (PST)
Keep! Come on its "The Hatch"!! Not Swan Hatch. Its never been reffered to as such and if people are going to be looking for information on this, they are going to be looking for "The Hatch", --lewisg 10:15, 24 January 2007 (PST)
The Hatch is not the current name of the article, and does not currently redirect to this article.--Dagg 10:28, 24 January 2007 (PST)
Keep The name's perfect!!! Now STOP complaining about it! It is just a name of an article of the Hatch. DON'T change the name! Who ever nominated this must be mad, I mean seriously what are you complaining about? This page SHOULD be: The Hatch (Swan Exterior). Because that is what it is, now get the hell over it and mark my words!!.--User:Liquid Snake
Keep No matter what Dharma called it, the main characters still refer to the place as The Hatch. -BearDog 13:20, 25 January 2007 (PST)
There is already a different article with the name The Hatch. What should the name of this article be? The current name of this article is unnecessarily verbose, and nobody ever links to it right. Everybody is linking to the disambiguation article. -- Dagg talk contribs4 8 13:28, 25 January 2007 (PST)
Actually, The Hatch was a redirect to the disambiguation page Hatch. I just changed it to redirect here, because if they typed in "the", then I feel they were looking specifically for "The Hatch" that John Locke spent weeks digging up. Nobody ever went looking for the Pearl by typing "The Hatch". We can put it back if people think I'm wrong. -BearDog 13:35, 25 January 2007 (PST)
Good idea.-- Dagg talk contribs4 8 14:13, 25 January 2007 (PST)

People missing from list

-Some people missing from the list: Sawyer: after being shot by Thom, Sawyer eventually made his way into the station. Libby: getting blankets and died in the station. Ana-Lucia: Lounging around, died in the station. Michael: MSNed Walt, committed murder. Rose: helped Hurley divide up his ranch dressing with the survivors. Ben: kept hostage in the station.

I also think I should point out that this list is kind-of silly. Why does it matter who visited the hatch? 73rd survivor 12:38, 25 May 2008 (PDT)

Note that this article is not the same as The Swan. After this hatch was opened, people started using the main door of the Swan. Only people who actually visited the dug up portion of the escape hatch should be counted as visitors. --Jackdavinci 18:35, 25 May 2008 (PDT)
Ah, I didn't realize that. Sorry and never mind. 73rd survivor 06:43, 26 May 2008 (PDT)

The Numbers

Does anyone have any theories as to why the Numbers were on the hatch. I was hoping someone would, but I got here and the theories page is deserted. Forgive me if this is not the forum on which to ask such questions, but I am a brand-new contributor and I am just getting the hang of things.--Stevenac 23:57, 1 June 2008 (PDT)

The numbers are on the hatch because inside the hatch there is a computer where you type in those numbers. --CTS 12:30, 2 June 2008 (PDT)

In wich episode saw Sawyer the Hatch?--Station7 06:45, September 16, 2009 (UTC)


Help me, please, my computer can't to downloading!--Station7 15:34, November 1, 2009 (UTC)

First and last visit

I make a section with first and last visit, just like all the other stations!--Station7 14:17, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

Could somebody helping me, I'm tired from my work.--Station7 14:49, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

New Hatch?

i seriously doubt that the imploded hatch that we saw in LA X was supposed to be different. Maybe it's a continuity error, but think about this: the imploded Hatch that we saw before served only the purpose of showing us that the Hatch imploded. In LA X, there was actual interaction with the environment. There was a fight scene in it, for god's sake! It served a new purpose in the script so instead of it just being a CGI effect superimposed onto the shot, they had to build a set. It's not even drastically different. It might be a bit bigger, and the middle of it looks sort of different (with the stuff sticking out of it), but I really dont think that it's worth mentioning in the actual article. Josh holloways wooden acting 20:34, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

It was the same Hatch.--Station7 20:43, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

It's an error.--Station7 22:25, March 4, 2010 (UTC)


Locke and Boone drop the flashlight in a small,rocky ravine. What happened to the ravine?--Paleored (talk) 23:23, July 5, 2015 (UTC)paleored

Yeah, the location was changed from the time they found it to when we see them digging it up. It's funny they were out most of the night looking for Ethan, presumably miles away from the camp, yet eventually they're able to reach the hatch location within maybe half an hour later on. Originally the hatch was planned to be found in a stream, according to the original draft of the script. The dropped flashlight was to illuminate the shiny metal, and they wouldn't have to dig in the mud to find it. The size of the door changes throughout Season 2 as well, if you notice.--Baker1000 (talk) 12:36, July 12, 2015 (UTC)
