Cable

Hurley with the cable ("Numbers")
Desmond and Charlie use the cable to find an underwater station ("Greatest Hits")

A cable runs out from the jungle to an underwater DHARMA Initiative station known as the Looking Glass.

The cable comes out of the ground in the jungle within a few hundred feet of a ravine with a rope bridge across it. It then runs through the jungle along the ground to the beach on the south side of the Island. From the beach, it travels through the ocean to the Looking Glass station.

Discovery

The cable was first discovered coming out of the sea by Sayid from an unseen source. It was slightly damaged, revealing wires within it. Danielle Rousseau had set traps alongside the cable - one captured Sayid, another almost killed Hurley, and another would have killed Charlie without Desmond's intervention.

Encounters

Purpose

According to Mikhail Bakunin, there are several cables that run from the Flame to all the other DHARMA stations, to the Barracks, and to a beacon in the ocean which aids in the sonar navigation of the submarine arriving at the island from the outside. He describes the main purpose of the cable as being "for communication". ("Enter 77")

Using some documents that he retrieved from the Flame, Sayid later figures out that the cable serves as connection between the island and the underwater DHARMA station, the Looking Glass. ("Greatest Hits")

The documents display the cable in a different configuration than is seen in 2004. The side view of the cable shows an anchor structure near the shore where the cable goes inland. The top view of the cable talks about the cable being anchored to land.

Sonar beacon

According to Mikhail, the cable leads to the Sonar Beacon. This beacon allows the submarine to locate the island from the outside. ("Enter 77")

The cable was later shown to run to the Looking Glass, the schematics of which indicate a sonar and observation room. ("Greatest Hits") The show's creators have confirmed that the Looking Glass is the underwater station suspected by fans. (Official Lost Podcast/May 21, 2007)

It is said that the sonar beacon has been down since the electromagnetic pulse. The combination of the failure of the sonar system and the communications uplink at the Flame triggers the Flame's computer to provide a menu option asking if there has been an intrusion by the hostiles at the station. ("Enter 77")

Comic Con 2006

The existence of an underwater DHARMA station was hinted at during the 2006 Comic Con in San Diego, in response to a fan question about the cable, approximately a year before the station appeared in an actual episode. This Lost panel discussion was also rebroadcast as The Official Lost Podcast on July 31, 2006.

Fan 7: I was just curious if next season, we were going to finally see the underwater hatch?

Nathan Summers was born to Scott Summers and Madelyne Pryor. He was soon after plagued by a techno-organic virus that was set to kill him until his parents sent him into the future for treatment. He returned some fifteen years older than his parents, a hardened warrior.

With powerful telekinesis that is often on the fritz, Cable seeks to better the future of mankind, for he has seen the result of not doing so first-hand.
