Does Sawyer know Nikki?

  • In a future flashback, it will be revealed that Sawyer knew Nikki prior to their arrival on The Island.
    • He essentially taught her what little she knows about conning rich people, because either he conned her, or he used her to help him con someone else.
    • They had either spoken privately early on, or he made it clear to her in his behavior, that they were to have nothing to do with one another on The Island, and he repeatedly said "Who the Hell Are You?" and variants, in his (rather successful) attempt to convince everyone he didn't know her.
      • May also be an in-joke about how they just magically started getting air-time and lines in the show. The Crew have inserted in-jokes before (See: Pissed off Giraffe)
    • A variant on this is that he did NOT know her as Nikki. This would explain why just after Hurley tells Sawyer he thinks Nikki's dead, Sawyer's cryptic response is to look right at her and say, "Who the Hell is Nikki?" When he did know her, she went by another name.
    • Nikki and/or Paulo may have conned Sawyer, or vice versa, before the plane crash, without physically meeting each other, which would tie in with the theme of characters being connected to each other obliviously.
    • Sawyer did not know Nikki prior to their arrival on the island. He makes the comment 'Who the hell is Nikki' because he has lived on the same island with her for months yet does not even know her name. It is an inside joke as all the audience will also be thinking 'Who the hell is Nikki!'.
  • Nikki may have bumped into Sawyer at the airport, similar to how Jack ran into Ana Lucia.


  • As Zukerman joked to Nikki about bringing her character back in a later season, does this mean Nikki may be brought back later on?
  • There is a cryptic Locke moment when he tells Paulo, "Nothing stays buried long." Is this a subtle hint at them returning?
  • Someone will remember about the diamonds when rescue appears certain. Nikki's dead body will be found, but not as it was placed. After awakening, Nikki attempted to dig her way out of the hole, but she was unsuccessful.
    • Doubtful that a castaway would dig up fellow dead survivor's grave because it would be pretty disrespectful. But could happen.
      • Jack and Kate dug up the Marshall's grave to find the key to the gun case.
  • Nikki is still alive and on the Island.
  • Miles can interact with the dead, and find the hidden diamonds, and perhaps get his 3.2 million dollars another way...
    • as possible evidence of this shows recurring theme of redemption, maybe he does indeed get this information in that way but decides not to act on it.
  • Those shifting in time with the island will stumble across the burial of Nikki and Paulo. They will see Nikki suddenly open her eyes and realize that she was in fact still alive when they buried her.
