It hasn’t quite been a decade since Lost left the airwaves, but the show left quite an impression. Years before Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead dominated genre TV, Lost was a true small-screen phenomenon. J.J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof, and Jeffrey Lieber created one of TV’s most instantly intriguing mysteries by marooning a cast of interesting and diverse characters on an island filled with otherworldly secrets. Lindelof, Carlton Cuse, and a vast team of writers shepherded the series for six highly rated seasons. The only problem is: They didn’t quite get around to answering all of the questions that they raised.
In the latest episode of SYFY WIRE’s 7 Essential series, we’re looking at the seven Lost questions that still haunt us eight years later. Granted, the show covered most of the important mysteries, and we learned all about the “Sideways” world of the final season. Even the Smoke Monster and Jacob were revealed to us by the end of the series. But we can’t say that we weren’t bothered by the way the show introduced new elements to the story and then completely ignored them.
Libby was in the asylum with Hurley... and somehow it never came up again. What the hell?! Also, why did the creative team make us wonder who was on the other Outrigger, only to completely abandon that question in the final season? Those aren’t even the biggest unanswered questions the show left behind. But to see the rest, you should check out the entire video. Then share your Lost theories in the comments section below!
Otherwise, we have to go back!
