Damon and Carlton recently announced that the Finale of this season will be titled "The Incident". I guess its fair to say that the episode will explain the Incident that Chang refers to in the Swan orientation film. Now I have to credit Dinsdale42's post about something Miles said for the trigger of this theory I have. Miles mentions that Widmore has been looking for the Island for 20 years. If Miles and the science team come to the Island in late 2004/early 2005 then 20 year earlier would be around 1985. Isn't that the time of the year that the Incident occurred according to the blast door map?
I think we'll see that Ben does trick Widmore into turning the wheel and in so doing they inadvertently cause the incident to happen at the Swan s…Read more >
So I was responding to someone's post about the nature of how the island is constantly moving, as mentioned by Ms. Hawking in 316. She said there are electromagnetic pockets all over the world and I think what she meant was that the island is constantly moving from one electromagnetic pocket to another. I also said it is possible that the Black Rock was sailing in one of those pockets when the island popped up in it and that is why it is located in the middle of the island.
This got me thinking. What if the Black Rock was full of people trying to find the island the same way as Ajira flight 316? My theory is that when we discover the back story of Richard it will be revealed that his story is similar to that of John Locke. The people on the…Read more >
So from reading a lot of the posts and various theories on this site it seems to me like there is a split among the fan community. Some people believe that, like Daniel says, you can't change the past and whatever happened happened. Others seem to believe that the past can be changed and the survivors of 815 are currently changing the past by what they do in Dharmaville in the 1970's. I have always believed that what we are seeing now in the show did actually happen in 1970's. We are just seeing it from the 815ers as they are experiencing it now. I think that Ethan's birth proves this to be true.
Oceanic 815 crashes in 2004 and it is then that we meet Ethan. Now if Sawyer and Juliet never saved Amy in 1974 then Ethan never would have been b…Read more >
I'm not sure if this is something that is known already and I am just stating the obvious but it seems clear that the Jughead bomb was buried where the Swan station was built.
I was watching an episode from season 2 the other day and Sayid was banging on a wall in the Sawn station. He explained to Jack that there a very thick wall of concrete that he could not break through. They crawled under the station and found more concrete. This matches Daniel's instructions to bury the bomb in concrete. Sayid went on to say that the last time he saw concrete poured like this was when he was in Chernobyl (the site of the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history). Maybe the DARHMA Initiative new that the Jughead bomb was buried there in the concre…Read more >
I think that next weeks episode entitled "Namaste", will show Ben Linius on the the island as a young boy and the 815ers will meet him. Maybe the episode ends with Sawyer (or any one of the 815ers) meeting a young Ben Linius after he has arrived on the island.
I am mainly basing this theory on the episode where Ben arrives on the island from season 3. In the that episode, the first thing that Ben sees when he gets off the sub is a big sign that says "Namaste". That may be a clue as to what this episode will include.
As a young boy Ben meets Jack, Kate, Hurley and Sawyer. That is the reason why they were on the list that was given to Michael at the end of Season 2. Also, I think that for some reason he never meets Jin and that explains why he…Read more >
