What was his brother's name?
Why can't we know his brother's name?
How does he protect the island?

Where did this group of people who have to protect him, and who ask the secret question about "What lies beneath the statue," come from?
Is it the brother?
Why can't he kill Jacob or candidates?
Did he exist before the brother was pushed into the light?
Where did the others come from?
Who was Dogan, at the temple? How did him being a "leader" relate to leaders like Ben? Were they in the same group?

What is the light an allegory for?
Why wasn't Mr. Echo a candidate (you know he wasn't because the smoke monster killed him)?

I have had lots of other questions too, but I don't write them down right away and forget them forever.
What other plot holes/mysteries can you think of that need resolving this Sunday? Can you add more questions to my list?
