  3. Illogical or previously disproven.
  4. Proven by canon source, and moved to main article.
  5. Speculative and lacking any evidence to support arguments.
  6. Responding to another theory (use discussion page instead).
  • This does not include responses that can stand alone as its own theory.
  • Usage of an indented bullet does not imply the statement is a response.

See the Lostpedia theory policy for more details.

  • He killed Nathan because he (Goodwin) was arguing with The Others over Ana Lucia's being worthy (of being on the list) and he knew that had she cut off his fingers, she would never be considered and as a consequence he would lose her.
  • His reaction when the Tailies come across the Arrow station seems to signify that he did not know of its existence because a radio was just lying there and he did not want them to have it. If the Others knew of the Arrow station, they would have taken the radio already to make sure nobody else could get it. This might suggest that the Others do not know as much about the Island and the DHARMA complex as suggested.
    • If you listen to him, he did know about the Arrow. He speculated (correctly) that it must have been used for supply. He clearly did not want them to have a working radio and probably didn't know about the material in the box at the Arrow.
      • He might have been guessing. On the other hand, he might have known about the Arrow, but never been there.
  • He "speculates" in his conversation to Ana Lucia that the people taken the first night were threats.
  • Goodwin WAS in the Peace Corps, but was eventually drafted to join an island-based team, a la Juliet's employment at Mittelos Bioscience.
  • Ben sent him to infiltrate the Tailies knowing full well he was sending him to his death because he couldn't take the risk of Juliet getting pregnant and then dying before she had found out what was happening to all the mothers.
  • He is Karl's father. Karl says that he and Alex used to lay in his backyard and name the stars. Therefore, Karl is most likely the son of one of the Others. Goodwin is a likely candidate, since he is about the right age to have a teenage son, and with him being dead, there is no longer anyone looking out for Karl.
    • We found out in "The Other Woman" that Goodwin was married to Harper, so if Karl was his son, then Harper would likely be Karl's mom. So, he would have someone to take care of him.
  • His last name is "Stanhope". This is likely because his wife's last name is Stanhope, but she could have kept her maiden name after the marriage.
