Hidden clue to Lost's timeline?

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 21st 2006 8:48AM

What does this mean? During last week's episode, Hunting Party, one of Jack's flashbacks shows him looking at an X-ray of his patient's back. The date on that X-ray: November 16, 2005. Huh??? The detail-oriented folks over at Lost-Media caught the date, which can only been seen if you have HDTV.

Was this an oversight on the part of the directors? It's entirely possible that the x-ray was made in November for a January airing. But, nothing ever seems accidental on Lost. We don't actually know when Lost happens and this X-ray suggests that it's in the future. How far into the future? Well, far enough for Jack to get himself quite a collection of tattoos.

Thoughts?

Lost: The Hunting Party

by C.K. Sample, III, posted Jan 18th 2006 11:59PM
"The Hunting Party," tonight's episode of Lost was again filled with new twists, turns, and revelations. The character du jour of the show was Jack, and while we were shown more interactions between him and his father in the show's flashbacks, the main story line of the backstory revolved around his relationship with his wife. As you'll recall, in a previous episode we discovered that Jack's wife was the same woman who crashed her car into Shannon's father, killing him. Jack married her after miraculously curing a back injury that should have left her paralyzed for life.

We begin "The Hunting Party" in a flashback of a father and daughter talking to Jack and Jack's father for assistance in removing a tumor in the father's spine. The surgery is too risky and Jack's father tells them he's not willing to operate. We then discover that Jack has some fame as a miracle doctor after healing his wife, and that they weren't interested in Jack's father's help, but rather came to seek Jack's help. Jack, partially to feed his pride and partially to defy his father, agrees to the surgery.

More with spoilers after the break...
