There are only ten more days until season six!!! So I though to prepare for the final season, I’d do a brief post to mention important episodes and any questions that I still have about them. So here is the first season:
Episode: (101/102) The Pilot
Why it’s important: Obvious reasons, the monster and everyone else is introduced.
Unanswered questions: We still are not sure what the monster is. We know that the plane crashed because Desmond did not press the button, but did Jacob or the man in black bring the losties to the island? If so, why?
Episode: (104) Walkabout
Why it’s important: We learn that Locke was handicapped before the crash and he has his first encounter with the monster.
Unanswered questions: How does the island heal?
Episode: (105) White Rabbit
Why it’s important: Jack sees his father on the island and we learn about his relationship with him before the crash.
Unanswered questions: How is Jack’s father on the island if he is dead? Is it Christian Shepard or is someone else possessing his body like the man in black/Locke?
Episode: (110) Raised by Another
Why it’s important: Its Claire’s first flashback episode, and we learn that Ethan Rom = Other Man.
Unanswered questions: Why did the psychic say that Claire had to raise the baby and then change his mind and tell her that it would be alright if a couple in LA raised him? Did he know that the plane would crash? Will we ever see the couple from LA?
Episode: (114) Special
Why it’s important: First Michael/Walt flashbacks and Claire returns.
Unanswered questions: How is Walt “special”, what are his powers and their source?
Episode: (118) Numbers
Why it’s important: First Hurley-centric episode, he meets Rousseau and it’s Claire’s birthday.
Unanswered Questions: What do the numbers mean? How are they cursed?
Why its important: Again, obvious reasons. Its the finale, Rousseau warns that he others are coming so the losties decide to blow up the hatch for shelter. Some of the losties go off on the raft and Walt gets stolen.
Unanswered questions: How did the black rock get to the middle of the island?
