Lost: Via Domus features a different version of the blast door map that contains more information than the map shown in "Lockdown". The video game version of the map includes extra notations, as well as new locations. Presumably these new locations were not included on the original map to avoid spoilers, as they were featured in episodes that premiered after the video game release date.

Although this version of the map was in a non-canonical video game, it is considered canon due to comments by the producers in Access: Granted. There have however been mixed messages from the producers on the subject.1


New notations

  • "Quid est veritus?" which translates as "What (or why) did he fear?" (from vereor, "to fear"). The answer to this question is the famous Latin anagram "Est vir qui adest", meaning "It is the man who is here".
  • "Hostile controlled" is written next to the Barracks.
  • "K. behaves strangely. Can't trust. Have to watch out" with "Strangely" underlined, is written over the words "Alleged location of #4, The Flame".
  • "C1?" is re-outlined with the words "Possible Orchid?" pointing at it.
  • "Tempus edax rerum" is written across the top of the possible Orchid. Meaning "Time is the devourer of things".
  • "Convinced island is Hydra. Tunnel blocked - work to access" is written next to the Hydra.
  • "Cables running offshore - possible Looking Glass" is written next to the Looking Glass.
  • "Aegri Somnia" - which translates as "a sick man’s dreams" or "troubled dreams".

New locations


Geographical inconsistencies

The Via Domus version of the blast door map contains geographic inconsistencies:

  • The location of the Pala Ferry is on the west side of the Island rather than the east side.
  • The Looking Glass was toward the west on the Island (not the east)
  • The Hydra is shown as being off the northwest coast of the Island. This would seem an unlikely location given that there are no Islands appearing on other maps in that region and it would place the Hydra very close to the beach camp.

Unanswered questions

  • Who created the new notations on the blast door map?

1 In Access: Granted, the producers refer to the visibility of more information on the map under different lighting conditions. Although they have stated that Via Domus is non-canon, they also stated that there is a canonical addition to the blast door map, which was seen in "Forty-Two".
