Lost

Pilot (2) - S1-E2

Question: What does Locke's quote mean? 1) "One is light one is dark", 2) "Wanna know a secret?"

Shadow5

Chosen answer: (1) At the time, in that moment, it has no other meaning but to explain the rules of the game. BUT in reference to the overall series, it was an ongoing theme. (2) He was going to tell Walt that he thinks this island has magical powers. Perhaps he was going to tell Walt that he was in the Wheelchair before the crash.

Pilot (2) - S1-E2

Question: We know that Cindy the flight attendant ends up with the "tailies." It took about a minute or two for the plane to break apart from the first time turbulence hit. The bathroom was near the front of the plane. We know this because when Charlie went with Jack and Kate to look for the cockpit, the bathroom was not very far away. How was she able to reach the back of the plane so quickly after pounding on the lavatory door when Charlie was snorting his heroine when the really bad turbulence hit?

Chosen answer: She could have lost her balance and thrown to the floor when the plane was broken apart she was probably sucked into the tail.

Boobra

Special - S1-E14

Question: At one point, Walt is reading out loud from a Green Lantern comic book in Spanish. The only two words I caught were "polar bear". What does the whole Spanish quote translate to in English?

Chosen answer: Green Lantern Kyle Rayner and Wally West (the Flash) are in the arctic to recover an alien ship that was hidden there by the original Green Lantern and Flash. A polar bear rears up behind him and he scares it away with a ring created giant flaming monstrous Santa Claus. Just before he does it, he thinks "Won't Wally look smug when he finds out I wound up as polar bear food."

Grumpy Scot

Do No Harm - S1-E20

Question: After Boone dies, and Clarie is showing off little turnip head, what is the name of the song that is playing, and who is the composer?

Chosen answer: The name of the song is titled "Life and Death", and the composer is Michael Giacchino. It is number 20 on the LOST soundtrack.

Angela Wilbourn

Deux Ex Machina - S1-E19

Question: When we find out about Locke's past, is Locke angry because his Dad just left him or what? I didn't really understand why he was so upset.

Chosen answer: Locke's father him came to him under the guise of wanting to reconnect as father and son, but in actuality was only using Locke to get one of his kidneys for donation. Once he got that he brutally rejected Locke, admitting the con outright and flat out admitting there was no room for Locke in his life nor any desire to make room. He told Locke he never wanted to see him again and when Locke pursued a relationship his father continued to reject Locke outright and finally went as far as to move in the middle of the night.

Season 1 generally

Question: I was just wondering what those things are that Charlie wears on his fingers. He wears them in the first few episodes, and writes stuff on them, and stops wearing them at about episode 6. They look kind of like plasters. I was just wondering if anyone knew what they were?

Chosen answer: I think they are exactly that - plasters...a bit like someone who would wear a wristband saying hope/fate or something like that.

Sam Johnson

Season 1 generally

Question: When Claire is pregnant with her baby, her belly looks very realistic. Does anyone know how they make it look so real?

Chosen answer: Using a mold, a realistic pregnancy belly is made of latex (rubber), including the distinct belly button, to suit the proportions of Emilie de Ravin who plays Claire. It is then painted with a special paint/adhesive compound that adheres to the surface and for shots of the actual belly, additional veining and stretch marks are airbrushed on.
