The Patriot Resource - Lost

Lost Season Two Episodes
Man of Science, Man of Faith (#201)
Analysis, Notes & Unanswered Questions:

  • Living quarters with running water and electricity exist within the hatch. The quarters include a full kitchen and a combination locked gun closet.
  • The Hatch appears to be outfitted for two: bunk bed, ping-pong, backgammon and two desks with chairs in the dome.
  • The inside of the hatch cover was labeled: Quarantine.
  • The following has been "confirmed" by the showrunners: When played backwards, Walt said "Press the button. Don't press the button. Bad." Shannon was dreaming when she saw Walt (apparently because she was so tired).
  • Desmond and Jack met the night that Jack apparently unsuccessfully operated on Sarah.
  • The driver that Sarah hit was Mr. Rutherford, who was likely Shannon 's father. He died on the table in the ER because Jack chose to stabilize Sarah.
