While I recognize that not all of our questions will be answered, as Damon and Carlton have stated, I have thought that it would be sad if some of the main questions that have arisen during the show were not answered or sufficiently answered. That being said, I know there are “big” mysteries and then just little “nagging “questions.
Along with my own questions over the last 5 years and obviously scouring Lostpedia’s content (including “unanswered questions” from various sections) I’ve composed my Top 50 list of questions I wish would get answered? These are in no particular order…
1 - The monster (and related visions it appears to provide)
2 - The whispers that occur when the Others show up
3 - What is the origin of the Others and their leadership?
4 - The whole pregnancy issue
5 - The cabin (moving locations, the ash circle, who said “help me” to John, the odd contents in the cabin)
6 - Who are Adam and Eve (what is the purpose of the black and white stones found on them)?
7 - How did the Black Rock end up in the middle of the island (if not from the island reappearing under it)?
8 - Why did Charles want the Black Rock’s ships log?
9 - Who was Henry Gale?
10 - Was there actually a “sickness” (i.e. need for quarantine and vaccine?)
11 - The Statue (it’s origin, existence and destruction)
12 - Aaron’s importance (as told by the psychic)
13 - The total nature of Walt’s powers
14 - Claire (where is she and why did she leave Aaron?)
15 - Libby’s past (Santa Rosa, her mysterious past including her husband who died?)
16 - Was Ben’s “vision” of his mother a manifestation of the monster?
17 - What happened to Ben’s friend Annie?
18 - How did Sawyer and Kate both see “her horse” (monster?)
19 - What exactly happened with Cindy and the kid survivors who went to the Others?
20 - Richard’s lack of aging (and his origin)?
21 - Why the constant theme of amputations (and the glass eye found in the Arrow Station)
22 - What is the relation between Seth and Frank and why did Seth replace him on the flight?
23 - What is the nature of the people that Sayid assassinated for Ben?
24 - Was Nadia’s death an accident or murder as originally suggested by Ben?
25 - What are the rules between Widmore and Ben?

28 - What is the true meaning of the Numbers and the Valenzetti Equation?
29 - Who was Jack’s ex (Sara) seeing after they split?
30 - Who is Jin’s father? (is it important at all?)
31 - How did Kate figure out that Cassidy and Sawyer know each other? (i.e. Why didn’t Cassidy and Kate discuss how much a coincidence it was – their miraculous connections to each other)?
