As expected for anyone following the show, Lost ended with many many unanswered questions. Some feel that these unanswered questions leavee the story unfinished while others feel like if they had answered those questions than it just wouldnt be Lost.
Either way, alot was left up to interpretation and speculation, The ending of Lost is a fanfic writers wet dream. So many unanswered questions to explore.
I just wanted to compile a list of all the important questions that were left unanswered ( And by important I mean things that directly affected the plot, not things like does Sawyer really love Kate or some crap like that.) I'm not complaining that these questions weren't answered (well most of them anyway) I just am trying to remember them all.
At the end of Season 1 he seemed like he would be a key character in the series but was in the end pretty trivial. Why was he "special" and if he was so "special" why didnt he appear past season 2 save for a few cameos. This question was sort of answered on Jimmy Kimmell though.
We know that she was once the leader of The Others and at some point left the island. What we don't know is why she is impervious to time travel ( knowing that Desmond was having Flashbacks). It seems like a small thing but it would be good to know how the character who some how knows everything... ya know... knows everything.
3. The Others
This one kind of annoys me. They never explained what the hell The Others were there for. That was like the biggest mystery in seasons 2 and 3 yet it never got answered.
My Own speculation: They're job is to make sure the people whom Jacob brings to the island to prove Smokie wrong, stay on the island. With changes to technology and stuff it probably got harder to keep people on the island once he brought them there with things like boats and stuff. Either that or that they are just there to protect the island because Jacob is unable to do it as one man, especially when the U.S Military arrived.
4. The Numbers
Now if anyone one says "Well we already got a good enough explanation for the numbers" I will hunt you down and shoot you in the face. No. Shut up. It was not an any where near decent answer. These numbers were messing with our minds since season 1 and we still never got anything but "They correspond to the candidates". Thats not an answer that's just another reference to the numbers. Did you all forget the distress signal that brought Rousseu to the island? or the fact that they are the Password to stop the apocalyse in the hatch?
5. The Rules
This one probably shouldnt have been answered because it would cheapen the mystery of the show but I still kindof would liketo know who the hell makes these rules and how come they can do that? Why can Jacob do all the things he does? Why can crazy mother lady make it so that Jacob and Smokie can't kill each other, why can't smokie kill candidates? the list goes on and on.
I wish this one was answered because the main point of LOST was defeating Smokie and protecting the Island. But it never did explain why letting smokie off the island was a bad thing. It would be great to know the reason the heroes are doing what they are doing or if there is a reason at all. From what we've seen, Smokie's been right about everything and there is nothing to protect. Jack pretty much died for nothing without this answer.
Other people mention the food drop but I don't see what's confusing about that. We saw from Elenor's Lab that the Dharma intiative existed outside of the island and we know that Desmond was still in the hatch pressing the button. Common sense would tell us that Dharma drops the food down every once in a while for who ever is in the hatch.
Well thats all the questions I can think of. If anyone else has any more add them to the list. If anyone possibly has any answeres please share.
