  • The DeGroots are the bodies that were found in the cave, the so-called Adam and Eve.
    • This is unlikely as the timeline does not match up. The DeGroots started their project years after the supposed death of Adam and Eve as indicated by their decay.
  • Even though we know it was the DeGroots who started the DHARMA Initiative, it is possible that they were also the ones behind the Incident.
  • The DeGroots speak Dutch and are the one's who gave Joop his (Dutch) name.
  • The elderly woman who is seen in the first episode in season 3 at the book club might be Karen Degroot.
    • If the DeGroots were in their 30's or late 20's in the 1970s, it would put their age at around 60 years old today.
