A key theme on Lost is that of conflict. While conflict can also define internal struggles, in this article it concerns the instances of fights, attacks and battles on the Island. In this way, it highlights the tensions and recurring rivalries that exist between characters.


Major confrontations


DHARMA vs. The Hostiles

Richard waits for the toxic gas to disperse. ("The Man Behind the Curtain")

The first major conflict we know of on the Island was between the Island's original inhabitants, the Hostiles (a.k.a. The Others), and the DHARMA Initiative. These two groups have fought many skirmishes and battles. In the end, the Hostiles, also known as the Others, conquered DHARMA with one swift stroke, known as the Purge. The Purge ended the conflict between the Others and the DHARMA Initiative. ("The Man Behind the Curtain")

  • The reason that these scientists and experimentalists were on the Island is a question that remains vague, but some hints have been given about why they were on the Island. The Numbers are the key part to the Valenzetti Equation, which is one of the main focuses of the Hanso Foundation. Hanso claims that humanity can be saved by changing these numbers through different environmental manipulations. He also reveals that the Island was used as a research station to attempt such a manipulation to change the Numbers. (Sri Lanka Video)
  • It was later on revealed that Station 5, the Pearl, was a psychological station. The two members inside of the station had to record everything that other DHARMA members did in the other stations by viewing them through nine surveillance monitors. (Pearl Orientation Film)
  • Although some information has been revealed about the purpose of these scientific research stations, they are still shrouded in mystery, which makes it more mysterious about the Initiative's true purpose for being on the Island.
  • The natives of the Island, known as the Hostiles, thought that DHARMA was impeding on their land. DHARMA, however, continued to build stations and bring new scientists and researchers to the Island. By now it became clear that one side had to side had to be 'purged'. The Hostiles used nerve gas to kill all of the DHARMA members who were at the Barracks. Ben led the Hostiles in this purge against DHARMA. It is still unknown whether any DHARMA members survived the Purge and are still living on the Island. ("The Man Behind the Curtain")

The Survivors vs. The Others

The dynamite explodes. ("Through the Looking Glass")

The next conflict on the Island was the battle between the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 and the Others. The Others first became known to the Tailies when, on the second day, they attacked the camp and kidnapped two of them. ("The Other 48 Days")

  • Later it became known that the Others had infiltrated the beach camp. Ethan Rom had pretended to be a survivor, even though he had been sent by Ben to infiltrate the camp ("A Tale of Two Cities") During Ethan's time at the beach camp, he established a trust with Jack by conversing with him about his worries for Claire and her pregnancy, since he claimed that his wife died during childbirth. ("Jack, Meet Ethan. Ethan? Jack") Charlie nevertheless killed Ethan, before they could extract any information from him. ("Homecoming")
  • Jack, Kate, and Sawyer are brought to a DHARMA station, known as the Hydra. Sawyer and Kate work tediously on a runway at the quarry, while Jack remains underwater, being manipulated by Ben and Juliet to convince him to do the spinal surgery for Ben. ("A Tale of Two Cities") Jack agrees to do the surgery, after seeing Kate together with Sawyer. Jack tells Ben that he'll only agree to perform the surgery if he gets him off this island. Ben replies, "done". ("I Do") Jack's agreement to do the surgery for the Others' leader is a ploy to get Kate and Sawyer to escape from Hydra Island. Jack makes an incision in Ben's kidney, which gives Kate and Sawyer one hour to escape. ("Not in Portland") Jack is taken back to the main island on a trawler along with Ben and the Others. They arrive at the Barracks, which is the home of the Others. ("Stranger in a Strange Land")
  • Later on, when Jack had been taken to the Barracks, Jack reminds Ben about their 'deal' that he would get a ticket off the Island. Ben tells Jack that there may be a day when he will want to return to the Island, but Jack doesn't think so. ("King of the Castle")
  • The Others continued to terrorize, kidnap, and kill the survivors. It wasn't until Day 90 when the survivors of Flight 815 made a final stand against the Others. Juliet was a mole sent by Ben, ("One of Us") but she told Jack what Ben wanted her to do. ("Operation: Sleeper") Jack and Juliet made a plan along with Rousseau. They got dynamite from the Black Rock, and told the rest of the survivors their plan. ("Greatest Hits")
  • On Day 90, the survivors prepared for their final stand against the Others. Ben sent a team of the ten best Others, lead by Ryan Pryce. Sayid, Bernard, and Jin were the three survivors who stayed behind to defend the camp. The survivors managed to kill seven Others with the dynamite, but Jason, Ryan, and Tom survived and took the survivors hostage. Hurley came to the rescue with his DHARMA van and killed Ryan. Sayid broke Jason’s neck, and Sawyer shot an unarmed Tom. Ten Others died as a result. ("Through the Looking Glass")

The Survivors vs. The Mercenaries

The freighties attack the Barracks. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

The names of the parachutists who were aboard the Kahana were revealed through clues and code names that were released via the internet in January 2008. The man who sent the group of people on the freighter, Matthew Abaddon, was also reavealed through clues on ABC's alternate reality game. (Find 815)

  • Miles revealed that he has his own agenda on the Island, and asks Ben specifically for 3.2 million dollars. Charlotte and Daniel remained at the beach camp with the survivors. ("Eggtown")
  • Charlotte and Daniel ran off into the jungle, and are pursued by Jack, Juliet, and Kate. Kate found them in a clearing, and is knocked unconscious by Charlotte. Jack and Juliet found her, and continued to pursue Dan and Charlotte. One of the Others, Harper, encountered them in the jungle, and told Juliet her orders from Ben. Juliet went to the Tempest to kill Charlotte and Daniel, but it turns out that they were trying to stop the toxic gas from contaminating the Island's atmosphere. ("The Other Woman")
  • On day 97, a group of freighter mercenaries, lead by Martin Keamy invaded the Barracks to apprehend Ben Linus. Before reaching the Barracks, the mercenaries fatally shot Karl and Danielle Rousseau and took hostage Alex as the three were hiking to the security of the Temple. The mercenaries commenced an assault on the Barracks, shooting and killing Doug, a blonde woman, and Jerome. They then destroyed Claire's house with a rocket-propelled grenade. (Claire survived the explosion and was rescued from the rubble by Sawyer.) The mercenaries then ceased fire as Sawyer brought Claire to Ben Linus's house, revealing Ben's hiding place. The mercenaries released Miles from his imprisonment in the boat house, giving him a walkie and sending him to Ben's house. Keamy used the walkie to negotiate with Ben, ordering him to come out and give himself up to the custody of the mercenaries. After Ben's refusal, a mercenary brought Ben's daughter Alex to Keamy, and he held her at gunpoint, threatening to kill her if Ben did not give himself up. When Ben again refused to comply, Keamy shot Alex in the head. Ben promptly summoned the Monster, and it indiscriminately attacked the mercenaries. ("The Shape of Things to Come")
  • Mayhew, one of the mercenaries, later died of his wounds shortly after the helicopter flight back to the Kahana. ("Something Nice Back Home")
  • The mercenaries return to the freighter, and Keamy goes to meet Kevin Johnson. He tries shooting Michael with his gun, but it won't fire. Keamy demands to be taken back to the Island by Frank, but Captain Gault holds him at gunpoint. Keamy then shoots and kills Gault, and Frank agrees to return the mercenaries to the Island. ("Cabin Fever")

The Others vs. The Mercenaries

Alpert and the Others after the battle ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")

The Others, led by Jacob and Benjamin Linus were prepared to do whatever it takes to protect the Island from the people that came to destroy it. Since Jacob and Ben were not with the Others at the time the freighter people arrived, Richard Alpert took on the lead position of the Others. ("There's No Place Like Home, Part 1")

  • Kate ran to Keamy and the other mercenaries, claiming to have been running away from the Others. The freighter mercenaries start searching for them, but one of the Others kills Kocol, and Lacour soon is killed as well, but not before firing shots in the air to warn the other mercenaries. Gunfire is exchanged from both sides. A grenade is thrown by the Others and lands at Keamy's feet, he kicks it away, and it explodes, killing Omar. Ben and Kate run away, but are chased fervently by Keamy. Sayid comes and tackles Keamy, and a vigorous fight ensues. Eventually, Keamy overcomes Sayid, coming close to killing him, but Richard comes from behind, shooting him twice in the back. The shots did not kill him since he was wearing a bullet-proof vest. Keamy made his way to the Orchid, in pursuit of Ben. He encountered Locke, but was killed by Ben to avenge the death of his daughter. ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")

Survivors/Science team vs. The Hostiles

  • After the Oceanic Six left on the helicopter, the survivors (along with Juliet and three members of the Science team) are confronted by an a faction of the Hostiles who send a volley of flaming arrows down on them. The first to be killed by this volley was Neil "Frogurt", who was hit multiple times in the chest and back. The survivors made a mad dash for the creek, and there appeared to be at least three more deaths. ("The Lie") The Hostiles apparently did this because they believed the survivors were U.S Military personnel. ("Jughead")
  • As Sawyer and Juliet made their way to the creek, three armed men (Charles Widmore, Cunningham and Mattingly captured them and questioned them, threatening to cut off Juliet's hands. Locke finds them and rescues them, killing Mattingly. ("The Lie") Widmore later escapes after snapping Cunningham's neck to protect the location of the Other's camp. ("Jughead")
  • The Science team and two other survivors are later ambushed by the Hostiles at the creek. After an accidental detonation of two land mines, only the Science team was alive and taken into captivity. Thus a victory for the Hostiles. ("Jughead")
