Electromagnetic Powers

  • Walt has supernatural electromagnetic properties, which he has used to influence birds' flight paths and somehow project himself through time: http://yedda.com/questions/electromagnetic_radiation_effects_9512422718541/
    • Faraday says Desmond becomes "unstuck" in time due to prolonged exposure to an electromagnetic source. If Walt possesses some natural form of this exposure, it could explain why he is "special" as well.
  • How would he influence flight patterns using electromagnetism and how does he get them to his location so fast? (when he called that one bird to hit the window it happened in a matter of seconds).
    • he was involved with ZFT (fringe)

Future

Walt as future leader

Theory 1: Locke, Ben, and Walt (and even Aaron) share the features of the "special" person who is chosen to lead the Island by the Others.

Evidence:

  • Walt, Locke, and Ben share many characteristics; these commonalities may imply the (necessary?) characteristics of the leaders The Others chose to lead them, and could have implications for Walt.
    • They all had bad fathers.
    • They all had troubled home lives.
    • They were all at one point raised without mothers.
    • They all had mothers who died prematurely.
      • Locke had a foster mother, but was not raised by his biological mother.
      • Walt was only with his mother until she died when he was 10.
    • All were born off-island.
      • All were contacted/observed as young children by Richard and the Others
      • All love the Island and are capable of special insights into its working.
        • Like Locke (the picture he drew of the Monster as a boy) and Ben ("I always have a plan"; "I used to have dreams, too"), the Island communicates with Walt, giving him visions of the future in his dreams that influence his behavior (i.e. burning the escape raft) to make certain events occur. Like them, he also did not want to leave the Island.
  • The Others only have a rough approximation and a few clues who the "special" people are, and thus rely on clues (i.e. the similarities shared by Locke and Ben, the test Alpert gives Locke as a boy, and the tests the Others ran on Walt (blood tests, etc.)) to find them.
    • Richard says that The Others chose their leaders very carefully from a very very young age.(Jughead While Walt can be considered not very very young, it is plausible that the tests that they had him take were for this purpose.
  • Walt is to Locke as Ben is to Richard.
    • They mean that, when Ben was a child, and Richard found him, Richard saw the potential of Ben as being formidable to the Others, through whatever means Richard was able to gauge Ben's resolve. Ben's sincerity in wanting to join the Others at a young age, escaping from his current habitation, resembles Walt's want to not only stay on the island, but become someone of use on the island, given the promise Locke seems to see in him. Ben, in Richard's eyes, was seen as someone who could easily survive on the island and help protect it, which given Ben's history, he seems to have done pretty well. Locke sees Walt as someone who can also help protect the island. I think that's what he meant.
  • Ben said that the Others would never give back Walt, presumably because he is so special. When they finally have to, it is not inconceivable that they also have a plan for ultimately getting them back, especially after Michael is dead - though his grandma seems like a tough customer in There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3.
    • Or it could be that Ben wanted to get rid of Walt precisely because he will be the future leader of the Others. Ben was roughly Walt's age when he first met Richard and began plotting against the Dharma Initiative...we also know Ben betrayed the previous leader of the Others Charles Widmore. Ben could very well have seen Walt as a threat to his primacy. As seen when Locke destroyed the submarine Ben has a habit of tricking people into doing what he wants and thinking it is their own idea. Walt was powerful and the Others were having a harder and harder time controlling Walt. Ben can't move against Walt openly but he doesn't want him around. He had the option of not keeping the Others word when he was freed by Michael but he chose to because he feared Walt. Walt's threat to Ben's control over the Others is why Ben never made an effort to bring Walt back to the island. Ben doesn't want him back. I also think it's telling that Widmore refers to Ben as "boy". I suspect Widmore was banished by Ben way back when Ben was a child. Ben is in a similar situation as the titan Kronos/Saturn...Kronos usurped the authority of his father Uranus and then had to deal with the prophecy of one of his own children doing the same to him. This is what invariably happens to the Others leaders. The next one waiting in the wings tends to have the leader eliminated.
  • Walt's special abilities make him a likely candidate for the Others' leader.
    • Ms. Klugh asks Michael if Walt had ever appeared somewhere he wasn't supposed to be. This is a direct reference to his special ability (whether controlled or uncontrollable) to appear to various Losties on the Island.
  • Now that Locke is dead There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3, Walt might be the candidate to replace him, and thus one of the Losties who "has to go back" according to Ben. In the end, the Others may have thought Locke was their chosen one, but it turns out it was one of the other Losties who had bad fathers, troubled home lives, raised without mothers. Possible candidates who meet at least some of these criteria are: Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley, or of course Ben again.
  • It's important to note Walt's special powers make him only a candidate for leadership, not the necessary or eventual leader. Walt was let go in by the Others because he was was more trouble than they bargained for. His power may have been to unwieldy, too strong, or not in keeping with Jacob's mission or goals.

Counter-evidence:

  • Walt does not really share characteristics with Locke and Ben.
    • Michael wasn't a bad father; his mother kept him out of Walt's life. Brian was by all accounts a good father.
      • He wasn't a good father until Walt's mother died and he had no choice but to raise the boy.
    • Walt was raised by his mother.
    • They were all born off-island, but so are most of the characters on the show.
    • Richard has not had any contact with Walt on record.
      • Richard had no contact with Ben, either, until Ben was on the Island. Walt was being tested for something by the Others and its certainly reasonable to assume Richard was involved.
    • The similarities between Ben and Locke are more striking than the collective trio.
  • The fact that the Others gave Walt back despite of what Ben said might be an evidence that he is not what they were looking for.
  • Knowing that the Losties are supposed to stay on the Island or that the Island is special does not mean someone is meant to be the Others' leader.
    • Rose knows too (in a way). She also knows how special the Island is, and Eko knows too.
  • Having special powers does not mean that Walt is meant to be the Others' leader.
    • Locke and Ben do not seem to have any powers other than talking to Jacob and insight.
    • Desmond has his own power to see the future, and does not seem to be a candidate for leader.
    • Ben hated living on the island as a youngster, Walt likes living there
    • Cuse was quoted in an Entertainment Weekly article that "...there's a circularity to the way the story of Michael and Walt is going to unfold in the overall mythology, and that is a long-planned approach."

Walt is Henry Gale

  • When Walt grows up he wants to save his father so he changes his name and goes back in time to the island in a balloon. However, the balloon crashes and then Ben finds it and used the name when he is captured by the survivors

Walt is a future leader

Just a theory, as we know from season 5 jacob has now died, what if Walt was supposed to be the next Jacob, this is the only obvious reason. It doesnt seem likely that he will be the next Ben, because Ben is a normal person trying too become a leader, Walt has 'powers' and so does jacob. Most of the Henry Gale stuff seems unlikely because Walt hasnt got back in time, maybe, Jacobs Nemesis who took the form of John Locke in the last season, took memories or feelings from John Locke, he may have wanted to kill Jacob, but maybe he knew that by killing Jacob, he would then allow somebody else to be in charge, Jacobs nemesis probably thought this was himself, but underestimated Walt

Rescue Boat Call Scene

  • Walt did not tell Locke anything new, after his scene ended, that would lead Locke to believe that he must stop Naomi from making the call. Walt only told him that Naomi is about to get them rescued off the Island, and Locke already knew that he must stop them. Locke already knows that they're "not supposed to" be rescued.
    • From the moment they crashed on the Island, Locke has known that the Island is their destiny and there is no other life for them (much like the psychic told Claire regarding Aaron). This is why he has been destroying every means of getting off the Island (i.e. condoning Walt's burning the raft, blowing up the submarine, and knocking out Sayid before he was able to locate the source of Rousseau's distress signal). Locke already knows that they're "not supposed to" be rescued. All Walt had to tell him was that Naomi was about to make the call, and Locke already knew he had to stop her.
  • This scene is the off-islanders, including Walt, returning but the island still jumping through time. Walt, disillusioned to everything that happened since he left, went off to try to change the past, ignoring all possible protests because the O6 lied about his father still being alive. Instead of changing the past (because it can't be changed) he caused the following chain of events, mainly the death of Naomi.

Monster

Theory 1: Walt is the smoke monster

  • Walt may be using his powers to send a mental self-projection to appear as the monster. (This can Be as Ben call the monster to help him when he in the house with Locke. the people from the ship send to get Ben of the Island. the monster come and kill the soldiers from the ship)
  • Maybe Walt is the monster - post death and freed from the bandages of time. Kills Eko, whom seemed to be an antagonist of Locke until a day or two before his death, and tries to bring Locke to a place where he could learn about the island (a pit possibly leading to temple).
  • Why would Walt go after the Pilot then? And kill all those other people in rather gruesome ways. The smoke monster was revealed to be the Medusa Spider that bit Nikkie so why would Walt do that?

Theory 2: The smoke monster is Walt

Evidence

  • Its possible that Shannon's sightings of Walt, were actually manifestations of the Smoke Monster. Seeing that the Smoke Monster was able to take the form of Yemi, Alex, and Locke, its possible that it turned into Walt to lure Shannon to her death.
  • Walt is just another projection that the Monster (maybe Jacob) used to move things along.
    • Jacob knows that only by saving Locke and manipulating him to perhaps convince Jack not to save the Losties--and, in effect, killing them and raising the possibility that the Island will be discovered and thereby tainted--can the Island be kept whole.
      • This is substantiated by Ben's insistence that everything he did he did for the "island." Which is Jacob, the manifestation of the power of the Island.
  • When Walt appeared to John, he was just a manifestation of the Island. Therefore it is the Island that is asking Locke to help. As we know Locke has "some sort of communion with the Island."
    • This explains why Jacob said, "Help me." Jacob is the Island. And since he knew that Jack and Naomi were trying to get rescued, he needed John's help to save the Island--to save him.
    • This would also explain why Ben shot Locke because Jacob asked Locke not Ben and this is why Jacob either brings Walt or a manifestation of Walt to help him.
  • The writers gave us subtle proof that Walt was a manifestation of the Island or of Locke's imagination. Walt always called Locke, "Mr. Locke" but when Walt appeared to Locke in "Through the Looking Glass" he called him "John."
    • In that case it would probably be the former, since Locke would probably imagine Walt calling him by what he always did, "Mr. Locke".
      • In the "Life & Death of Jeremy Bentham" a grown up Walt calls Locke, John not Mr. Locke, so feasibly it could've been grown-up Walt communicating with John on the Island...

Counter-evidence

  • If Jacob was going to show Walt to Locke, surely he wouldn't have shown an aged Walt - he'd show Walt as he looked when leaving the Island. This would ensure Locke actually recognized him. The Walt that Locke sees is actually Walt, and he has aged at an accelerated pace, in much the same way as Ben seems to (e.g. compared to Richard Alpert).
    • The actor who plays Walt is going to age, however they wanted him to still appear relatively young (hence the over-sized clothing and the frequent face close ups.) I don't think his rapid aging after being off the Island for only about a month (show time) is relevant.
      • If it wasn't, Locke wouldn't have mentioned that it was "Walt... only taller."
      • In reality Malcolm David Kelley, who plays Walt, is 17 years old. In the show, Walt is supposed to be 10 years old. This explains the rapid aging, it has nothing to do with events inside the plot.
    • Actually the producers confirmed in a recent podcast that Walt's appearance on the Island has been part apparition, part monster.
  • Walt is not Smoke Monster. Bea Klugh asked Michael if Walt was ever somewhere he shouldn't have been, and Michael was caught off-guard by the question, showing us that Walt has (at least) the ability to manifest himself away from his current physical location.
  • Wasn't Michael caught off guard because so many of the survivors saw Walt around the island after he was kidnapped? Wasn't at least one of his appearances attributed to the monster by the producers?
  • Based on the events occurring early in Season 5, it seems much more probable that Walt, at some point in the future, after he's grown older, returns to the Island and ends up becoming unstuck in time. When his world-line coincides with Locke's at the end of Season 3, he gives him the message to stop Naomi (his motivation hasn't been revealed yet).

Theory 3: Walt controls the smoke monster

  • Walt controls the monster to appear to Locke. This is why his is "Walt only taller" (we can assume older) and yet, as the producers say, a manifestation of the monster.
  • Why would Walt go after all of the other people? And who controlled the monster before he crashed?

Captivity

  • There may be some connection between Walt's strange powers and Aaron. Aaron is shown crying immediately after Charlie dies. While this may just be a coincidence, or just a factor of a miserable trek through the jungle, there could be something special that happens to children brought to or (in a rare case) born on the Island.
    • There will almost definitely be something special about Aaron. It is still uknown what will happen since Claire didn't raise the baby, or even if it will matter. Why was the psychic so desperate for her not to leave the baby? He later revealed to another (EKO) that he was a fraud. However, Why did he give Claire's money back if he was making it all up?
    • Neither Alex nor Karl have shown any special abilities like Aaron did. Alex was definitely born on the Island. It is unknown whether Karl was born on the Island or brought there after his birth.
      • Alex was born on the island because Rousseau was still pregnant when she recorded her distress signal and she stated she gave birth to her 2 days later.
      • We don't know for sure that Alex has no abilities & we know nothing of Karl's origins, but we do know that Miles was either born on the island or brought there as a new-born and he has the ability to comune with dead people...coincidence, I think not...
  • Walt may have been taken to the Barracks and saw the Others without their disguises, because he told Michael that the Others are 'not what they seem' and 'they pretend'.
  • He and Michael were directed to the second island, where they are still captive.
  • Escaped from Hydra Island by swimming, explaining why he always appeared wet.

Ability

  • Walt may have a strange ability that allows him to project himself back through time from 2007 to 2004 to give Locke a mission. (Perhaps at the request of Jack, who wants to undo the chain of events that led to him leaving the Island)
    • Maybe he arrives back on the Island with the Oceanic Six and engages in jumping through time, perhaps ending up in time to tell Locke what he needs to do. Maybe Locke as Bentham told him when and where.
  • Walt had 'special powers' (we know this because when he was in Australia with his mother, he 'summoned' a bird he was looking at in a book), so it would make sense for Jacob to have him near, as it appears The Others are looking for 'special' people, like Locke.
  • He and Aaron represent "light" and "dark" pawns in a struggle between two sides, as metaphorically suggested by Locke during the backgammon game.
    • I sincerely doubt, in this day and age, that a metaphor such as 'Light & Dark' would be manifested by a black kid and a white kid.
  • Much of the apparent psychic ability Walt has displayed while on the Island may stem from his reading of the Green Lantern comic book. Inspired by this, Walt may be the so-called "the magic box". Walt summoned the polar bear after seeing it in his comic book. Walt has the power to make his wishes appear. This might be why the Others wanted him.
  • Walt didn't summon the polar bear. Polar bears actually existed on the island. We know that the Dharma Initiative were performing experiments with polar bears, as was evidenced by a comment made when Sawyer figures out how to get a fish biscuit. It can probably be assumed that the polar bears were being trained to turn the FDW to move the island, so that no human inhabitants had to be transported off-island.
    • Jacob could be said to have the same power, as he is the one who "brought" the Black Rock to the Island much to the disappointment of Esau.
    • It is Vincent, not Walt, that has psychic powers: when something "strange" happens to or around Walt, Vincent is with him (the bird in the flashback, throwing the knife, etc.); when Walt appears to Shannon, she's taking care of Vincent (Vincent also finds the DHARMA van and knows Nikki and Paulo are still alive).
      • Except in the Missing Pieces, there is a pile of dead birds outside the window to Room 23 when Walt is in it. Room 23 is on Hydra Island. Vincent is still on the main island at this time.
  • In addition to animal empathy, Walt may possess the ability to manipulate probabilities.
    • When playing backgammon, he always gets the exact rolls he needs to move ahead in the game.
    • During an argument with Walt about finding a missing Vincent, Michael says, "I'm going to get your dog back as soon as it stops raining." Walt looks out from under the shrapnel that was covering them, and almost instantly, the rain stops.
  • When Ms. Klugh is questioning Michael, she asks him, "Did Walt ever appear in a place where he was not supposed to be?" Michael does not understand what she is asking, so she clarifies, "You say he was halfway around the world, but... did you see him?" She could be suggesting that Walt can project his image across great distances (as in the paranormal phenomenon of astral projection). The Others may know that he appeared to Shannon and Sayid.
  • Walt may be capable of teleporting himself across space and time, like Richard Alpert, hence he was teleporting himself to Shannon in order to warn her of the danger she was about to face, or indeed to cause her death.
    • It is not yet known if Richard (or Jacob) can project themselves through time or if they simply do not age.
  • Walt used his powers to teleport into a room with a computer, allowing him to contact Michael. It is this incident that alerted the Others to his potential danger to them.
    • Walt didn't use the computer to contact Michael, it was the Others using it to lead him into their trap while watching from the Pearl.
      • It may have been Walt who contacted Michael at first. The Others caught him doing that and decided it to use it to their advantage and get Michael there.
  • In "Special", Walt's ability to see with his mind's eye is a sign of the artistic vision he received from his father.
  • Walt will return in season 4, but will have aged (as in real life) approximately three years. This will be explained by time moving slower on the Island.
  • Walt's powers may be, in essence, a "younger version" of the same abilities that Desmond has.
    • Another possibility is that Walt's abilities pertain to the concept of "space" (being in multiple places at once, manipulating physical elements such as backgammon dice and weather) and Desmond's pertain to "time" (crossing from present to past, seeing future events and thus having the capacity to alter the "direction" in which time flows).
    • He could also be the opposite of Desmond in the sense that Desmond sees the future and attempts to stop it, Walt could be in the future and tells Shannon "They're coming ad they're close" referring to Ana Lucia in an attempt to stop it from happening unforunately it didn't work or the "Universe changed" in accordance with what Desmond was told when he went back into the past. This also agrees with Walt telling Locke that "He has work to do", this meant that he had to stop Naomi and Jack, however Jack called his bluff and once again the universe "Corrected itself" much in the same way Desmond tried to save Charlie only that Walt is trying to do it from the future.(If any of you watch Heroes its a bit like Hiro trying to stop the bomb going off).
  • Walt is actually Jacob
    • Not likely- Jacob appears to be an old man.
      • If this is linked to the above theory, though...
  • Walt appeared to Locke to change the past. He comes from the future which we know from Jack's flash-forward, in which somebody dies, probably Michael, because the lostaway returned which is connected to his death. In order to change this event, Walt trys to hold all of them on the Island. Because of that he is older.
  • Walt's special powers were passed on to him from his mother Susan Lloyd who came from the Island, originally a slave on the Black Rock. She died of an unspecified "blood disorder." Alvar Hanso (who is also theorized to have come from the Island via the Black Rock) had something unusual about his blood, something that would cause "heart problems" (according to The Lost Experience). Hanso was reported to be "older than he looked" suggesting unnaturally long life, if not immortality, presumably a result of living on the Island. This longevity is manifested in a blood anomaly or "disorder" that can cause death when islanders leave the Island. Passed on to Walt off the Island, the anomaly is the cause of his special abilities.
  • Walt's special power is somehow related to birds.
  • Walt is "special" because his body and mind both travel time as opposed to Desmond who has only traveled with his mind.
  • Walt has some influence/control over electromagnetic fields. This is why the bird runs into the window because migrating birds use magnetic fields for navigation. Walt may be able to be in two places much like the bunnies in the Orchid orientation film.
    • Walt's control over electromagnetic fields allows him to transport both his mind and his image between time periods. He must use a constant to do this. Several constants still exist on the Island for Walt. The most obvious one is Vincent - which explains why he appeared to Shannon, who was caring for Vincent. However, his connection to Locke also allowed him to appear to Locke as well.
    • When he appeared to Shannon (before she died), he seemed to be frantic, trying to warn Shannon of her death. He was still going back in time when he was talking to Shannon which explains why he was talking backwards.
  • Walt's abilities will be instrumental in getting the O6 back to the Island in season 5.
  • Walt is Matthew Abaddon. First of all, Abaddon refers to Locke in the flashback as "Mr. Locke", just like Walt. He also convinces Locke to take the walkabout, seeming like he will know what will happen. Abaddon also says he took a walkabout once, and this could be a reference to the Island.
    • Perhaps older Walt is making sure the timestream remains intact as Abaddon? We've seen him do three things so far-he's scared Hurley into going back to the island, he's recruited the science team, and he's drawn Locke to the island by way of a walkabout. Perhaps, then, he is manipulating events to make sure that everything occurs as it should-sort of like Mrs. Hawking or Desmond- He's "special," just like them.
  • In "Tabula Rasa" when Michael exclaims that he will search for the dog when it stops raining, Walt makes the rain cease.

Misc

  • Michael did not actually use the computer physically to communicate with Walt. The computer tapped into Michael's mind somehow, or vice versa.
    • The producers stated on the promo for 'Secrets of Lost' (Blue-Ray special feature), that it indeed was Walt, who Michael was talking to. However, they didn't say if Walt did it physically, or telepathically.
      • In the missing section of the Swan orientation video, Dr. Chang mentions that using the computer to contact the outside could possibly lead to another "incident." The incident involved saboteurs from the future attempting to destroy the Swan station. The computer is somehow connected to the past or present, and thus the need for someone to manually enter the code every 108 minutes - it can't be automated. Walt in the future, back in the U.S., somehow figures out how to crack into the computer to get in contact with the Losties (and his Dad) on the island, and ends up communicating with Michael at the end of S2E09.
  • Walt will meet up and talk with the oceanic six. He will become a major character again in the "2006-2008" time line of the show. Malcolm David Kelley's current age will match up correctly to the future timeline.
  • He must go back with the rest of the Oceanic 6 because he was on the plane too.
  • Michael, Walt's father, much like Aaron's father was/is an artist or painter who wasn't around much or at all for the childhood of either Walt or Aaron. They are both "special" and require some kind of special attention. There may be some link, especially because Backgammon/Light Vs. Dark is such a common theme, and Walt and Aaron could represent a potential battle between the two forces.
  • Also, to note, Walt's mother took care of him for most of his life, with little interaction from his father. With little interaction from Aaron's father, Claire took care of Aaron for all of HIS life so far. Brian (Walt's father figure) and Charlie (Aaron's father figure) are both present in the respective childs' upbringings. Walt's mother dies, and Walt is taken away from Brian. Charlie is killed, and Aaron is taken away from Claire when Claire disappears.
  • Eloise Hawking will convince Desmond to seek out Walt, and in Season 6 both Walt and Desmond will arrive back on the island together. Hawking and Ben seemed very adamant that "they ALL" need to return to the island, so that would include Walt and Desmond.
  • depending on what they meant desmond may not need to return. He came by sailboat not by the plane, so if they were talking generally about the survivors, he should be fine. If they meant everyone who ever left the island, then will widmore need to return?

Pop Culture Reference

  • Walt's character, a child with special powers in the midst of a strange situation, could be a reference to the literary work of Stephen King, who often centers his stories around similar "special" children, such as in the Shining, Carrie, and Firestarter.

--Not sure if it's important, but Carrie is Juliet's favorite book. --There are also several references to Stephen King in the first series, and second, there are also several quotes from his books, there are quite a lot of things to do with him, so im guessing that season 6 is going to be very much inspired by him

Room 23 (Walt)

  • Walt has a unique condition that allows him to "tap into" The Island's power(s)
  • When we first see walt use his powers his kills a small bird, when he kills alot more whilst being in room 23 his power has grown vastly and is able to do alot more.
  • If Walt can harnest the islands power then how does he kill the bird at home before he even goes to the island?

Walt Summoned the Shark

As we saw in "Special", Walt seems to have the ability to at the very least bring animals around situations that he thinks about or reads (Reads a book about birds and one fly's into the window). In "The Greater Good" we hear Walt ask Michael, "What about sharks?", this may have been the time he "summoned" the shark...otherwise he could have been thinking about it on the raft. The only other time he could have worried about it is after he got taken (worried about the Mike/Sawyer/Jin getting attacked by sharks). Walt was also reading a comic with a picture of a polar bear in it, then Sawyer kills a polar bear out in the jungle.

  • I doubt Walt would of done this on purpose, he wouldn't want to hurt Michael. But maybe he did it subconsciously or meant to send it after his abductors

Walt appeared to John Locke from the future

As commonly known, John Locke described as as "taller" when he is seen at the mass grave. I believe that the reason he looks taller is because he (the character, not the actor) _was_ taller because he had aged. My theory is that Walt traveled in time from the future to communicate with Locke.

What does "special" mean (as used by the Others)?

  • Bea and Ben called him "very special." Walt has appeared several times on the island after he left, never wanted to leave in the first place, may also have premonitions about what is going to happen on the island.
  • In Fringe they called people "special" when they are tested with a drug that can manipulate their DNA and give them powers.
