the comic book Walt was reading in episode 2. It says eagle-eyed viewers could have noticed a picture of a polar bear on the page he was reading. When asked if it was coincidental to them seeing a real polar bear on the island, Lindelhof says "every prop is absolutely intentional"...it goes on to say the comic was a Spanish translation of "Green Lanter/Flash:Faster Friends Part 1" where the heroes attack an alien that turns out to be peaceful...says Abrams "We definitely chose that story for a reason"
Originally posted by keenan Probably not, but there is quite a few tons on aluminum and all sorts of other things that can be used for many uses, heck, there is enough electrical cable in those planes to wire the island for cable TV.
If they could find it, the coffee pots would work very well for boiling water.
Originally posted by Kamakzie My friend just had an interesting idea. Could the island be located in the Bermuda triangle?
I'm not sure a plane originating in Sydney could even get to the Bermuda triangle without refueling. They were over the south Pacific. Even if it could, that would be like the entire flight to LA plus, what, about another 6 hours of flight time?

You're assuming a linear space-time continuum.
"The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be the shepherd."
If everywhere on earth was subject to non-linear spacetime, we wouldn't need a "Bermuda Triangle," since weird stuff would be occuring all over, all the time, and we'd be used to it and call it "normal"...
Don't you wish there were a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence? There's one marked "Brightness," but it don't work. ÂGallagher

His fingers were not taped on the plane. He did that on the beach the first night.
In the flashback, you see a closeup of his hand, nervously twisting the ring. It is large and silver, with the letters DS on it, presumeably for the name of the band he is in, Driveshaft.
The other notable thing is that his fingernails are black in a thin crescent along the cuticle, if I have my terms right. This may be residual from his drug use, but strangely, it's only on the fingers of his right hand, not the left.
During one of the first scenes in the Pilot, where Jack is being sewed up by Kate and tells her the story of how he allows terror in, but for only 5 seconds, we see that he has a couple funky tattoos of his own...including the number 5.

Wow, I completely missed those, is Kate in that scene also?
So can anyone decipher the Kanji characters on his arm?
Originally posted by DeathOpie There's a message board on the ABC page and a guy claims that he freeze framed a few scenes where you could see the watches people were wearing and they all are stopped at 3:15, which lead to a whole bunch of bible quotes. Can anyone confirm this?
Unless they dropped the ball on tonight's episode, I would say this is NOT the case.
In the scene with Charlie and Claire, even though his watch is out-of-focus, you can see that the time changes dramatically from one cut to the next, even though only a few seconds have passed. Guess they must have reshot parts of that scene.

No, they wouldn't. For safety reasons, the pots would have been the plastic insulated kind which can only be used with a drip coffee maker (which would require electricity). The outside of the pot would melt if placed too close to any significant heat.
