What is inside the hatch & how did it get there?
- The interior of “The Hatch” turns out to be a 70’s era research facility that is one part of a hive of similar facilities from a group called “Dharma”.
- This particular facility is “Station 3” and has the nickname “The Swan.”
- Whatever the hatch contains, it was precognatively feared by Walt.
- Quite large & buried.
- A broken ladder has been shown inside & a very long tube down into the ground.
- Contained a fair-sized food store that Hurley decided to share with everyone (rather than attempt to ration)
