Locke's adding machine makes a loud, distinctive noise at the end of the first flashback - almost identical to the sounds that the Monster makes. Is there some connection between the Monster, and that which holds the characters back? --Erised 04:11, 30 May 2007 (PDT)

Is this piece of dialog a bit of foreshadowing? Jack: We don't have time to sort out everybody's god. Charlie:Really, last I heard we were positively made of time. Smithee 23:16, 13 July 2007 (PDT)

John Terry in the episode?

Is the man seen by Jack in the forest played by John Terry in this episode too?Andris22 03:51, 13 August 2007 (PDT)

Unanswered Questions

Would propose removing:

How is Locke able to walk? Because the Island healed him.

Why did the Monster not kill Locke? Because he has a purpose with the Island that he has not yet fulfilled. --LOSTinDC 13:49, 27 May 2008 (PDT)

Since alternate theories could be proposed, especially for #2, I think these are still valid UQs. (An example of an alternate theory for the second question would be that the Monster never kills anyone the first time it sees them, it only scans them first.)

I think we've seen enough evidence by now to support that the Island healed Locke. --Managerpants 18:25, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
Also I have to retract the second part of what I said, above. The Monster killed what's-her-face--Nadine--from the science expedition, no questions asked. What a jerk. Robert K S (talk) 20:22, 13 March 2009 (UTC)


As I write this comment (2/23/08) this page currently reveals Randy's connection to Hurley, which at this point had not yet been revealed in show. Should that be removed? I thought we were trying in the episode articles not to spoil the later episodes for newcomers to the show reading these in order. It's the reason all the season 2 articles say "the prisoner" and "the fake Henry Gale" instead of "Ben" -- because Ben's name had not been revealed in season 2. --Jeff 18:20, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
