  It was initially intended by the creators to be a joke. In the context of the show, it is likely that the shark was part of zoology experiments conducted by DHARMA.

 82. Why/how does Walt appear in Shannon's tent?
 83. What does Walt mean when he says "They're coming and they're close"? Is he referring to the Others?
  He could be referring to the Tailies. Since it is also possible he is astral projecting from the future, he could be referring to anything, since he may not know "when" he is, or where he is, or to whom he is appearing.

  Presumably, Mikhail. But the evidence is only circumstantial.
 88. (From Lostpedia) In "A Tale of Two Cities", when the Others see the plane falling from the sky, Ben tells Goodwin that he can get to where the tail crashed in an hour if he runs. If it took him an hour to get there, then why did Ana Lucia point out to Goodwin that ten minutes after the crash he wasn't even wet?
  Perhaps she was exxagerating. Or it's just a writer error.
 89. (From Lostpedia) In "A Tale of Two Cities", Ben told Ethan and Goodwin he wanted lists of the survivors in two days. However, on the night of the crash, three Tailies were abducted by The Others. How was Goodwin able to make a first list and communicate so quickly with his group?
Episode #2.08 - Collision
Episode #2.09 - What Kate Did

 96. Is the person on the other end of the computer in this episode the same person room the last episode?
 _ What does the person on the other end of the computer (presumably Walt) mean by "They are coming back"?
  Presumably, if it is Walt, he has accessed a computer in secret, and doesn't want to be caught (by the Others that have him) using it.
 97. What are the explosions Charlie witnesses when he is in the tree?
  Probably just the Smoke Monster coming out of the ground.
 _ What are the images of Eko's past in the smoke? Is the smoke "scanning" Eko?
  Sure, why not?
 98. Is Locke's experience with the Monster similar to Eko's?
  This one is hard to answer. Locke said "I saw a bright light it was beautiful," When WE saw the Smoke Monster scanning Eko, it did not appear to US as a "bright light," although it is possible that is how Eko saw it.
Sub question: 1.07: Did the Smoke Monster scan Locke in their first encounter, as it did Eko? Maybe. That might explain how the Smoke Monster could appear as Locke - it has to scan you first. Perhaps when it scans you, it appears to you light a bright light.
Here is another interpretation, rom the Lostpedia Theory page on the Smoke Monster: the Smoke Monster manifests itself as how they see the island -- "a place of renewal, beauty, and miracle."
 _ Is there more to Eko's proclamation of being a priest (current day), besides that of posing as one in order to smuggle drugs out of Nigeria?
  Yes -in Season 3, we see his whole story, where he takes his brother's place as Priest (although never ordained) to help protect his village. He works as a priest in England and Australia.
 99. Why is Charlie hoarding Virgin Mary statues? Is he using again?
  I believe he is holding onto the drugs, just in case, but has not been using.
 100. (From Lostpedia) Why did the Monster not attack Mr. Eko?
  The Smoke Monster may have wanted to use Eko, as Eko was a man of faith, in much the same way he uses Locke later on.
 101. How did the plane leaving Nigeria land on the island?
  Perhaps the Island was in a different place (closer to Nigeria?) when Yemi flew over it.
Episode #2.11 - The Hunting Party
 102. Who is Sarah's lover?
  Probably no one we've seen before or since; no one related the plot. Or, I'm gonna say Jacob, just to make things interesting.
 _ What is the source of the seven gun shots heard in the jungle?
  It is gunfire exchanged between Michael and Tom. (Three Minutes)
 _ Who is the "somebody a whole lot smarter than anybody here" that the Bearded Other refers to?
  This is a quote from Alvar Hanso, on the Hanso Foundation website. Unless Tom is referring to Jacob.
Episode #2.12 - Fire + Water
 _ Why is Eko marking trees?
  To cut down and build a church.
 103. (From Lostpedia) What is the significance of the seagull appearing towards the end of the dream?
Episode #2.13 - The Long Con

 104. What is the deal with the heiroglyphics that appear on the timer when they fail to enter the code in in time?
  The creators said the translation is "underworld." But this doesn't explain why they are on the timer, or what they are intended to signify.
  Further information from Lostpedia: "Damon Lindelof stated that the Dharma Initiative included the hieroglyphs as an homage to the historical occupants of the island." But this still doesn't answer the question of why they are there - what their purpose is.
 _ Did they manage to enter the code in in time, or was the fact that nothing happened proof that nothing will happen if you fail to enter in the code?
  They did manage to enter the code in in time. We see later what happens when you don't.
 105. (From Lostpedia) Did "Henry Gale" fall into Rousseau's trap intentionally or by accident? If it was intentional, how did he know that Rousseau would turn him over to the Losties? And for what purpose or purposes did he want to become their prisoner?
 106. (From Lostpedia) Why did Joe Inman talk Sayid into torturing Tariq? Joe obviously spoke Arabic, so he could have done it himself.
Episode #2.15 - Maternity Leave
 _ Why is "Beardy" clean shaven and cleanly dressed? Is his tattered look a disguise, or has something happened in the time period between this flashback and current time?
  It is a disguise. We find the costumes and theatrical make-up in Live Together, Die Alone
 _ Who is this "Him" "Beardy" is speaking about?
 107. What is the liquid Ethan has Claire drink?
 _ What does Ethan mean that the Others are "good people"?
  There is a war going on, and the Others believe they are working for the greater good. It's complicated.
 _ Who is the teenage girl that awakens Claire? Is it Rousseau's daughter, Alex?
  Yes, it is.
 _ Why does the teenage girl help Claire escape?
  Presumably, she is just being rebellious. Or she knows/thinks they are going to do something to Claire and/or the baby, and Alex is being altruistic.
 _ Is Aaron really sick?
  Well, if he is, he gets better.
 _ Why is Eko cutting down trees? Is it related to the trees he was marking in Fire + Water?
  Yes. They are buiding a church. (Dave)
 _ Are the tattered cloths and theatrical make-up proof that the Others make themselves look tattered intentionally?
 _ (From Lostpedia) Why did the Others want to take Claire's baby?
  Even though babies conceived off-Island, like Claire's baby was, survive (and therfore there is nothing unusual about it), I'm sure they just want to sstudy it anyways.
Episode # 2.16 - The Whole Truth
 _ Who is the father of Sun's baby - Jin, or Jae Lee?
  Juliet confirms it is Jin, because Sun would have gotten pregnant on the Island.
 _ If Jin is the father, how is it possible, since he was diagnosed as infertile?
  The Island must have healed him.
 _ Will there be a balloon where Henry Gale says there will?
  Yes. (Lockdown)
Episode #2. 17 - Lockdown
 108. What causes the lockdown?
 109. What causes the black lights to turn on? Is it because the numbers weren't entered in time? Does the black light turn on every time the numbers are entered?
 _ Who made the blast door map?
  We see Kelvin working on it, but we do not know if he was the one that started it.
 130. What is behind the food drop?
  As seen in The New Man in Charge epilogue, there is DHARMA organization in Los Angeles sending food drops.
 110. Is the food drop related to the lockdown (because whoever is behind the food drop doesn't want the people to witness it?)?
 111. What causes the black lights to go off, and the lockdown to end?
 _ If Henry Gale is a dead black man, who is the person they have in the hatch?
  It is Ben Linus, leader of the Others.
 112. (From Lostpedia) Did "Henry" kill the original Henry Gale?
 _ If so, where is the original Henry Gale's body?
  It is buried in the jungle. (Dave)
 113. (From Lostpedia) How was the supply drop initiated without anyone hearing it?
 114. If the supply drop came from a plane, why did no one witness a plane?
 115. (From Lostpedia) Did "Henry" want Locke to see the Blast Door Map?
 _ (From Lostpedia) When "Henry" told Locke that he did not push the button, was he telling the truth?
  He was probably lying, because we have seen that if you do not push the button, a whole lotta crap happens.
 _ (From Lostpedia) Has "Henry" been inside The Swan before he was captured?
  Most likely, since he is the leader of the Others.
 116. (From Lostpedia) Does "Henry" want Locke to stop pushing the button?
 117. (From Lostpedia) Does "Henry" know what the button does? Or what is behind the wall?
 _ (From Lostpedia) Why are supplies still being dropped on the Island after the Purge? (Reference to Season 3)
  DHARMA is sort of a body without a head: it has many satellite operations semming stil working automatically around the world.
Episode #2.18 - Dave
 _ What is Hurley's medication, Clonazepam, for?
  It is a real medication, which is prescribed for anxiety disorder, panic disorder,and sometimes even to prevent siezures.
 118. Why was Libby in the institution?
 119. If Hurley was imagining Dave, was he imaging anything else we have ever seen him witness?
 120. Will Hurley ever find out/remember that Libby was in the institution?
 _ Who is this "him" "Henry" mentions? Is it the same "him" Desmond mentions in adrift? Are either of those the same "him" Beardy mentions in Adrift?
  It's probably Jacob.
 _ Is the entire show in Hurley's imagination, as Dave says it is?
  Probably not.
 _ What does "Henry" mean when he calls The Swan "a joke"?
  We cant' trust anything he says.
 121. Who buried the real Henry Gale?
 122. What does "Henry" mean when he says "Even God can't see the Island"? Does he mean the Island is somehow removed from space or time, or is cloaked in some way?
 _ (From Lostpedia) Was Dave a part of Hurley's imagination on the Island, or was he a manifestation of the Monster?
  We learn later that the Smoke Monster needs a dead body to impersonate. Many sources confirm that "Dave" was mearly a hallucination by Hurley.
Episode #2.19 - S.O.S.
 _ Did the Island really heal Rose?
  She seems to stil be doing okay, even by the end of Season 5!
 123. (From Lostpedia) Why did "Henry" try to place doubt on the button to Locke?
 _ (From Lostpedia) How did the Island heal Locke's paralysis and Rose's cancer?
  Because it can.
Episode #2.20 - Two for the Road
 _ Who is the blonde woman Christian Shepard is shouting at?
  It is Lindsey, Claire's aunt.
 _ Who is Christian Shepard's daughter? Does Jack know about her?
  It is Claire. And apparently not.
 _ What does it mean when "Henry" calls Locke "one of the good ones" (implying that Ana-Lucia is not)?
  Because he has faith in the Island?
 124. Why will "Him" kill "Henry" for failing at his mission to retrieve Locke?
 125. Was it really "Henry"'s mission to retrieve Locke? Therefore, was "Henry" getting caught in the net on purpose?
 _ Is Michael's description of the Other's camp (22 Others, living in tents, guarding another Hatch) accurate? If so, does it mean these Others are the same as the ones that dress up in tatters in Maternity Leave?
  We see the camp as Michael describes it in Three Minutes. The we find out it is a dummy camp (or at least the door is) in Live Together, Die Alone.
 _ Why did Michael shoot Ana-Lucia?
  As part of a bargain to see his son.
 _ Why did Michael shoot Libby? Was it for the same reason he shot Ana, or was it an accident?
  It was an accident.
 _ Why does Michael free "Henry," and then shoot himself?
  Freeing Henry is part of the deal to se his son, and shooting himself was to make it look like he was shot while Henry was escaping.

 159. How did the question mark get made in the soil?

  It is Dr. Pierre Chang in all of the videos, who uses various pseudonyms, for some reason.
 161. Was the Pearl video made before the Swan video?
  They both have a copyright date of 1980, so at least they were probably made in the same year. Or made previous to 1980, but were copyrighted in 1980. (Especially since Dr. Chang lost his hand in 1977 but appears to have a functioning hand in this video.)
 _ Is "Tunde" Eko's (and Yemi's) last name?
Episode #2.22 - Three Minutes
 162. Why do the Others take a blood sample from Michael?
  A paternity test?
 _ What does Mrs. Klugh mean by "Has Walt appeared in places he wasn't supposed to be?"
  It appears the the Others know about Walt's ability to appear in places, either by teleportation or projection, or something else entirely. BUT HOW DO THEY KNOW ABOUT HIM?
 163. When Mrs. Klugh tells Michael that he doesn't seem to know a lot about Walt, is she intentionally echoing the lawyers from the custody battle? Does she somehow know the details of the trial?
 164. What sort of tests are the Others making Walt take?
 _ What does Walt mean when he says that the Others are "not who they say they are - they're pretending?"
  Walt most likely is referring to the fact that their tattered clothing and beards are a disguise, as revealed later in this episode.
 _ What is "the room" Mrs. Klugh threatens to send Walt back to?
  Probably Room 23, where brainwashing (and other testing and/or modifications?) happen.
 165. How do the Others know Sawyer's real name?
 166. What is the vaccine Claire takes? Is it the same vaccine we have seen before?
 _ Why did Vincent bring the Virgin Mary statue to Charlie?

 167. What is the nature of the vaccines we see various people taking, or giving to other people? Are they the same substance each time?
Episode #2.23 - Live Together, Die Alone
 168. Why was Desmond in a military prison?
  All we know it was for "failing to follow order."
 169. When was Desmond in the military?
 170. How did Libby's husband die? (More specific than "got sick"?)
 _ Is the "him" that Kelvin refers to the same as the one Desmond refers to in Adrift?
  Probably -- they are both refering to the replacement button pusher.
 171. What does Kelvin mean that he left the army because men "followed his orders"?
 _ How did Kelvin join the DHARMA Initiative in the real world?
  He says he was recruited, after answering an ad in a magazine.
 172. Why was Kelvin deceiving Desmond about the quarantine outside of the hatch?
 _ Did the Oceanic 415 crash because Desmond was late putting the numbers in when we was fighting with Kelvin?
 _ If Desmond knows the quarantine is a lie, why does he ask Locke how many people have gotten sick (in Adrift)?
  It's possibly he still thinks there is a chance of getting sick, and he has escaped getting sick by using the injections.
 _ Why is Desmond not able to escape the Island on his sailboat?
  Jacob has set it up that you cannot leave the Island via boat, unless you know the specific compass bearing.
 _ Are "the Hostiles" and "the Others" the same?
  Yes. As of January 2008, we are prety sure there is only one group of non-Losties on the Island.
 _ What is the deal with the large bird in this episode? (See Exodus, Part I)
  They are large due to genetic experimentation by the Other.
 _ What is the deal with the giant, four-toed statue?
  It belonged to a statue (now destroyed except the foot) of Tawerwet, the Egyptian goddess of protection, birth and fertility, built by ancient Egyptians on the Island.
  It is the remains of a giant statue of Tarewet, an Egyptian goddess. It was somehow demolished before 1974.
 173. What is the deal with the capsule dump? Did something used to be there, or was The Pearl designed to be useless? Does this mean the actions of the Pearl (along with or independently from the Swan) are just a test? If so, why would the capsules be dumped in the middle of nowhere, where they could be found?
 _ What is the "Pala Ferry"?
  The Pala Ferry is a ferry system created on the Island by the DHARMA Initiative for the transport of its workers to and from various other location, such as the Hydra.
 174. Does the Swan explode because they failed to enter the numbers, or because they triggered the fail-safe?
  Both. They triggered the fail-safe just in time. If they had waited any longer, something far worst would have happened.
 _ What is the purple light? A result of not putting in the numbers or a result of the fail-safe?
  It is the discharge of a build-up of electromagnetic energy, triggered by the fail-safe.
 _ What is the fate of Mr. Eko?
  He is alive, and found later in a cave.
 _ What is the fate of Locke?
 _ What is the fate of Desmond?
  Alive, and naked next time we see him, in the jungle.(Further Instructions)
 175. What does Henry mean by the fact that they "got more than they bargained for when Walt joined them"?
 _ What is at bearing 325? How does it allow Michael and Walt to escape the Island - or does it?
  It does get them off of the Island. They eventually make it back to New York.
 _ What does Henry mean by "We're the good guys, Michael?"
  Henry (Ben) is in a war with Widmore. Ben believes the existence of the Island is good for the planet (somehow), and Widmore would only exploit it.
 176. Where is this location the Two Porteguese are in?
 177. If it is the discharge they are detecting (either the fail-safe or the lack of button-pressing), then how?
 178. If Penny is the one that hired them, what is SHE looking for? How does she know anything about an electrical discharge, the Island, etc.?
  It is clear Penny is using these means to look for Desmond, but it looks as if she doesn't know anything about an Island. So how does she know to connect an electromagnetic anomaly to Desmond, a former soldier on a boat race?
 179. Who is S.R. (on the Pearl logs)?
 _ (From Lostpedia) Are Michael and Walt rescued?
  Yes - We find out they get back to the real world in Meet Kevin Johnson
 _ (From Lostpedia) Did Penny really find the Island?
  Yes - she manages to get her boat close enough to the Island after this event.
 _ (From Lostpedia) Did the Hurley bird really say Hurley's name?
  It probably just sounds like it.
 180. (From Lostpedia) What did Desmond really do those few weeks he was gone? Was he on the sailboat the whole time?
 181. (From Lostpedia) In Pilot, Part 1, the pilot of the plane tells Jack and Kate that had lost radio contact and flew for 1000 miles (about 2 hours) before the crash. If the system failure at the Swan station caused the plane to crash, what happened that made the plane lose radio contact two hours before the crash?

 _ How did this model village come to be on the Island?
  DHARMA probably built it.
 _ How long have the Others been on the Island (they have modern accoutrements like CD's)?

 _ What is the purpose of The Hydra station?
  During the time DHARMA was involved, it was to do zoological experiments in water-based animals.

  It activates a pumping system to flush water from the station .
 _ Why is Karl in the cage?
  He was put there by Ben to keep him away from Alex (specifically, to prevent him from getting her pregnant).
 _ If, as Juliet hints, the current Others are not DHARMA, then who are they? And what happened to the people that built the Stations?
  DHARMA was purged (murdered) by Ben and the Hostiles, who are the "original" inhabitants of the Island (pre-DHARMA).
 _ How do the Others know so much about Jack - and where did they get that big file on him from?
  Jack was one of the Candidates. Jacob had marked them prior to them coming to the Island, and the Others had been monitoring them ever since.
 184. What, if anything, does Jack hear on the intercom?
  Here is a transcript: http://lostwhispering.blogspot.com/2006/10/jack-using-intercom.html

 _ Why do they want Kate to break up rocks? What are they clearing the area for?
  A runway. From Lostpedia: "According to the Official Lost Podcast of March 19, 2009, Jacob ordered the runway to be built. It seems highly probable that Jacob was expecting the arrival of Flight 316."
 _ Has Ben really lived on the Island his whole life? What about the other Others?

 _ Can we trust what Juliet said on the cue cards?
  As of Season 4, I would say yes.
 _ What causes Eko's shelter to catch fire?
  From Lostpedia: "It was never revealed how this fire started, although a vision of Yemi appeared before Eko in the tent holding a lit Zippo lighter." Therefore - the Smoke Monster did it.
 199. Are the visions of the people Eko has killed hallucinations, manifestations of the Monster, or something else?
 _ Who is the man with the eyepatch?
  In Enter 77, we learn he is Mikhail and he at first pretends to be the last surviving member of the DHARMA Initiative, but then admits to being with the Hostiles.
 200. Does the glass eye found in The Other 48 Days belong to this man with the eyepatch?
  From Lostpedia: "It was later revealed that Mikhail's right eye was completely scarred over, which presumably precluded him from having use for a glass eye." Therefore:

 202. To whom does the glass eye belong, and why was it abandoned?
 _ Is the vision of Yemi that says "You speak to me as if I were your brother" a manifestation of the Smoke Monster? Is it the same as all other visions of Yemi we have seen?

  From Lostpedia: "Jacob was the ageless protector of the Island for more than 2,000 years."

  It is a front - a fake company being run by the Others to recruit new Others.
 _ Is Edmund being hit by the bus an accident, or are the Others somehow behind it?

  I think she is just a psychic lady.

 222. (From Lostpedia) How does Ms. Hawking know what Desmond does in his future?
 _ (From Lostpedia) If Ms. Hawking is right and the universe "self corrects" and nothing Desmond does can change it, why does she insist that Desmond must not marry Penny?
  Because if he doesn't marry Penny, than later he will have to prove his worthiness to her by entering the sailing race, and then end up on the Island, and becomes the next button-pusher. If he does marry Penny at this point in time, he will never get on the Island.
