Gas Masks
« on: February 08, 2008, 02:52:32 AM »
The gas masks in the trunk that was thrown from the helicopter makes me think that these people were sent by DHARMA or are somehow connected to them.  It also shows that they have knowledge of the purge and how it took place.

Any thoughts?

The lady anthropologist at least has an inkling about Dharma.  The polar bear skeleton had a collar with a Dharma logo on it.  Hydra.  And they're there to get Ben.  I think they are Dharma.

She also had alot of cash and seemed to be looking for the collar at the dig. I think you are right, I think we are seeing the new Dharma people.

The fields of Dharma research noted in the Swan film were meteorology, psychology, parapsychology, zoology, & electromagnetism, but a physicist & an archaeologist would certainly have interest in the Island's unique properties/ past.

What did one new Dharma peep say to the other whilst donning a gas mask?

"Ben a while since I've seen you around."

I believe they may indeed be new Dharma peeps.

Does the fact that they packed gas masks point to Dharma being behind the mission?  Who else would know about the previous use of gas on the island?  They are after Ben, the mastermind of the purge.  I think we all assumed that Abbadon was connected with Dharma, but is that enough evidence?

If true, my question would be why is Dharma still sending food to the island if they know all their people have been killed?

you rock!

i think these are new dharma, but i don't know if they really realize they ARE dharma, but more that they are being paid to do research on the FORMER dharma and what happened to them.  

i don't think the masks are for a NEW purge, but just for safety reasons in case they need them.

I would say they knew about the purge and came prepared in case they tried the same technigue again.

I thought at first they didn't know they were somehow involved with Dharma, but then when Charlotte "smiled" when seeing that Bear Collar, that blew that idea......She knewthat was Dharma related.

Very good point.
If they knew of the purge, they wouldn't, would they?
Unless having people still living in the island (and somehow still being part of the island experiment) is more important than the fact they are a murderous bunch lead by a pschyco?

OK, I agree they're probably neo Dharma. It does seem pretty clear that they know about the purge, and that it used gas, and that they know Ben played a big role in it.

Food drops from Dharma may have continued in hopes there were survivors of the purge. And from what we know of Kelvin, they were probably right.
