New York[edit]

I thought Michael was from Chicago. What episode demonstrates the New York origin? Dave 06:35, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

In episode 1.17, Michael talks to Walt about his home city, New York. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.165.69.215 (talkcontribs)

Last Appearance?[edit]

When was it stated that Michael's last appearance was in the season 2 finale?!--Radaar 14:41, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

No Crossovers?[edit]

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is it true that Micahel is the only character whose flashbacks have no connecting points or "crossovers" with any of the other characters'? If this is true, is it worth mentioning in the article?

I understand what you mean, but is Walt included in that count? I think so. --154.20.217.225 17:23, 15 July 2006 (UTC)
I guess you could include Charlie in that too. he has only seen hurley in the hotel on the way to the airport (which isn't a proper flashback in the sense that it doesn't really tell us about the characters past).
No, Locke makes an appearance in one of the flashbacks. When Michael is on the airport phone talking about Walt (and then later sees Walt was behind him), Locke (in his wheelchair) is wheeled by the camera. Wangry 17:16, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure if airport scenes count. Plus Charlie is connected to Desmond through Flashes and Sayid through Nadia.
At the same time, he hasn't had a lot of flashbacks; in Season one they tended to not feature nearly as many "crossovers" as Season 2, and he wasn't in Season 3 which was crossover heavy, Locke' dad/Sawyer, Claire/Jack, etc.71.138.242.150 18:20, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
the way I see it, the airport scenes or anything that has happened in flashback form that has taken place on the island doesn't count. They have to be connected at least before September 22, 2004. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.147.234.55 (talk) 20:16, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Michaellost.PNG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Michaellost.PNG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

He's dead[edit]

TV Guide did an interview with Harold and he confirmed that he did die in the season finale. He's also disappointed in it, so maybe someone could add that.--CyberGhostface (talk) 14:31, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
