* Most arrows point at something important. Perhaps [[The Arrow]] can be used to navigate, maybe it even points to [[325]]
 
* The [[station]] the [[Tailies]] found wasn't the whole Arrow station. On the [[Blast Door Map]], there is a small part that connects to the main [[station]] off to the left of it. This may be a supply [[station]] that the [[Tailies]] found. They also may have found one of the "CV's" on the map, seen clustered near [[The Swan]] and C4. This "CV V" (CV 5) may not be visible on the map, as the top is slightly cut off.
 
** This may be supported by the fact that the station which the Tailies visited had a DHARMA symbol where the inner circle was a dotted line, while in other places the symbol has been seen with a full circle.
 
** The station that they found may have been separated from the rest of the station like the source of the magnetism was covered up in the swan.
 
* The [[station]] was used by [[Radzinsky]] at one point, as the parts of the [[Swan Orientation Film]] that he edited out were found there.
 
* The [[Quarantine]] warning on the door supports theories that people lived in the Arrow and were not supposed to leave, much like the [[Swan]].
 
* From what the [[Tailies]] found, it is possible that most of [[The Arrow]] or [[The Arrow]] itself is simply a storage bunker. If that's the case, it may be possible that there are other "Arrows" on the island. The Arrow would be a collective name for all of them.
 
 
*There's more to The Arrow than we think. The Swan and Flame both had trapdoors so what's to say The Arrow didn't have one concealed that leads into a larger area.

*As the station's purpose was to develop stategies against the Hostiles, it makes sense that after the Purge, the Hostiles cleared the station of anything that could be used against them, should DHARMA ever return to the Island. This may explain why the station is almost empty in 2004.

*The Arrow got its name from the fact that the Hostiles used arrows to attack intruders. The Arrow's name and logo are symbolic for DHARMA's countermeasure against the Hostiles.

*The DHARMA logo on the wall of the Arrow was painted using a single piece wooden mold with the necessary cut-outs. This logo needed to have the color of the inner circle inverted and have the circle interrupted, as it was hard to paint the standard logo on the wall with this technique. It would have required unconnected character shapes, instead of simple character cut-outs to paint the name of the station in the logo, which would mean that the mold would consist of multiple pieces and be impractical. This means that the Arrow logo on [[Horace Goodspeed]]'s jumpsuit is the standard Arrow logo, while the logo on the walls is a stand-in.

* The Arrow station was the first station (or one of the first) to be build on the island. This is supported by the fact that it looks older than any other station. For example, it has a wooden door instead of a steel one and the walls are somewhat rudimentary.

* Considering that the Arrow and the Swan were the only two stations with the [[Quarantine]] sign written on the inside of the entrances, it's possible that there is an unknown connection between the stations. The Swan and the Arrow may have been part of a post-[[Purge]] DHARMA project. Several new recruits, including [[Kelvin Inman]], were sent to the Island to man both the Swan and the Arrow. The DHARMATel network was used for communication between the two stations. One day, the Arrow stopped communicating. This promped Radzinsky, who was also looking for a place to dump the edited footage, to venture to the station. When he discovered that the station was raided, most likely by the Hostiles, he dumped the film and went back to the Swan. Realizing that Kelvin and he were now the only DHARMA members left and that there was the possibility of an attack on the Swan, Radzinsky killed himself, knowing that the project had already failed.

* The Arrow was some type of Financial facility, and was purely DHARMA infrastructure, not ressarch. That explains Goodspeed's profession: mathamatician is another word for Accountant.

* The arrow station could in fact be the [[cabin]] that [[Jacob]] resides in built by [[Horace Goodspeed]], the [[Arrow]] station shown in [[Season 2]] could be a decoy station for the real arrow.
** While accountants must have good math skills, a person with a professional title of mathematician is in all likelihood not an accountant.

* Since Horace was building a cabin and worked at the Arrow, this could be the cabin he built and [[Locke]]'s dream could have been a tiny bit off (or the [[Island]] could have some how changed the map. Jacob and Horace's cabins could be completely diffrent. Also, If Horace built the cabin in the 70's, where would Jacob be in 1954, which Richard ovbiously knew when Locke said,"Jacob sent me." Although, Jacob could've been in the [[Temple]] or [[Richard]] is a time-traveler, but I doubt that, but that could be why [[Widmore]] still didn't trust [[John]]... no still doubt it... Jeez, I sound like [[Faraday]] with all these crazy theories in 1 paragraph!
* There is a direct connection between the [[Arrow]] and [[the Swan]] station; on the [[Media:Mural.jpg|Mural]], in the [[Swan]], there is a huge [[arrow]].
 
*The station may be to research the curious temporal anomalies we have seen on the Island (i.e. Desmond's ability to time travel after being on the island) - the "arrow" may be a reference to the [[Wikipedia:Arrow_of_time|arrow of time]].
 
* "Restocking and staging area for Dharma Initiative Hanso Group", as mentioned by the [[Blast Door Map]], could mean the Arrow is like a waiting room before people replace those in the other stations, like the Pearl, so they don't interact.
 
* The Arrow is also used for mathematical research as seen in {{ep|3x20}} on [[Horace]]'s workman suit, possibly researching [[The Valenzetti Equation]].
 
* The Arrow could have been used for calculating navigation data for [[the island]] as magnetic feilds were possibly changing due to experiments in [[the swan]], as others have mentioned here, an arrow is used on compasses, so could very well be used for navigation.
 
* The glass eye is Marvin Candle's/ Mark Wickmund/ Edgar Halliwax
 
* The being a storage/restocking and staging area station was not it's primary function. Much like the Orchid, it might have had a secret underground or side station, which was where the real function of the station was located (possibly the alleged cryptography station mentioned on the Blast Door Map.
 
* The glass eye is Mikhail's

*The "secret" piece of film of the Swan Orientation Video, which was hidden inside the [[bible]] is some sort of key to the [[island]].

Main Article Theories about
The Arrow
Main Discussion
 Theories may be removed if ... 
  1. Stated as questions or possibilities (avoid question marks, "Maybe", "I think", etc).
  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.

  • There's more to The Arrow than we think. The Swan and Flame both had trapdoors so what's to say The Arrow didn't have one concealed that leads into a larger area.
    • At the Comic Con 2007, in the Orchid Orientation Video it was said that no one can know what you do here, they only think this is a botanical research facility.
    • The Staff also had the hidden room that Juliette enters in "D.O.C."
  • Couldn't the eye belong to the person in the mural with there eye scratched out, I believe the arrow represents some sort of direction for salvation, through a person, probably Locke

The CabinEdit

  • The arrow station could in fact be the cabin that Jacob resides in built by Horace Goodspeed, the Arrow station shown in Season 2 could be a decoy station for the real arrow.
  • Since Horace was building a cabin and worked at the Arrow, this could be the cabin he built and Locke's dream could have been a tiny bit off (or the Island could have some how changed the map. Jacob and Horace's cabins could be completely diffrent. Also, If Horace built the cabin in the 70's, where would Jacob be in 1954, which Richard ovbiously knew when Locke said,"Jacob sent me." Although, Jacob could've been in the Temple or Richard is a time-traveler, but I doubt that, but that could be why Widmore still didn't trust John... no still doubt it... Jeez, I sound like Faraday with all these crazy theories in 1 paragraph!
