LOST Theories So you think you know some secrets of the island? Maybe you can explain everything. If it's original and you can back it up, we'd love to hear it.

+ Did we miss a clue in Season 3?

I am sorry in advanced if I posted this in the wrong section. And I am sorry if this is repeated else where. In "Enter 77" Mikhail is with John, Kate, and Sayid and he say's something to the effect of "But you John Locke... The John Locke I knew-" and then he is cut off. So do we have definite proof that John goes back in time. To me it explains the expression on the Other's face when John joins them.(can't remember the episode but I remember the scene sorry) I always felt they looked at him like "oh he's back" instead of "he's finally here". What do you think?

Re: Did we miss a clue in Season 3?

Welcome to Theories lostmyeye. What a great name! Take time to look over our other forums -- we talk about a lot here. Remember to check out the forum rules and guidelines as well. Now on to your theory ...

Why does Mikhail's statement indicate that Locke travelled back in time? Couldn't it be true that Locke and Mikhail were around each other at some point in the past?

Re: Did we miss a clue in Season 3?

Welcome to the forum. And I also love your name!

It's an interesting point you bring up. He was cut off right as he was about so say the "The John Locke I knew was para....".

Clearly he was about to say he knew that John had been paralyzed. And I agree with the previous 2 posters. They may have crossed paths in the past, as so many of the characters have. Or, he was just referring to information he had on Locke in his dossier.

Although......now that I'm thinking here....he had dossiers on Sayid and Kate as well and he makes a point of saying to Sayid "I don't know you at all, how could I?" which is a curious statement.

Who knows, maybe you are on to something.....

Re: Did we miss a clue in Season 3?

Locke became paralyzed four years prior to the crash of 815, so if Mikhail knew him when he was paralyzed, it had to be sometime between 2000-2004. Mikhail was on the island at that time and had his video communications equipment. My guess would be that it was Alpert who would go off-island, still monitoring Locke after all these years. Mikhail saying he knew Locke may have just been from videos. We know Mikhail had a good understanding of the island's healing quality, so that would explain why he wasn't terribly surprised to see Locke walking again.

Another possibility could be that it was Abaddon monitoring Locke off-island during those four years and feeding the info back to Mikhail. Which brings me back to the old question of who Abaddon is actually affiliated with. I wouldn't be surprised if we learn that Abaddon and Alpert originated from the same place and shared some common goal in shaping Locke's destiny.

I agree and had posted this elsewhere. I speculated they may have been former Dharma people......who parted ways badly (obviously since Alpert eventually orchestrates the purge). Although I'm not convinced of that, it was just a thought.

Re: Did we miss a clue in Season 3?

The "Others" are surprised and at awe at him because he used to be paralyzed now he's hiking through the jungle hunting boars and solving mysteries on the island. It's definitive proof that the Island does have magical powers for some of the Others who are getting tired of the place. They view him as the "miracle man". If everyone in the world knew about the Island's magical miracle properties like Locke and Rose, they would be flocking to the island once its location is found. That's what Ben warned to Locke when they were living in the Barracks. The "Others" also thought Locke was going to be their real leader not Ben but apparently he failed the test as a child given to him by the "Other" Richard Alpert at his home. I don't know about time travel in the show. I think it was discredited as a theory before. But if time travel is now a real possible theory then I think the "Others" might be able to time shift if the island is shifting or maybe open a time portal window which might explain Richard Alpert's "immortality".

Proof?

SAYID: So, when did you come to the island?
MIKHAIL: 11 years now. I like computers, communications equipment, being along like a lighthouse keeper. So they put me in this station. They called it The Flame.

Putting Mikhalil there between 1993-2004?
