SummaryEdit

Located inside the Hydra Facility, Room 23 was the location that "The Others" were keeping Karl hidden. Orientation film for The Hydra revealed that DHARMA Initiative used Room 23 to create amnesia in the the "Hostiles" after interrogating them. The building was guarded by Aldo, but Alex, Kate and Sawyer managed to outsmart him and gain access into the building, and to Room 23. Inside, they found Karl strapped into a chair being administered drugs via an IV in his arm, he was wearing LED-goggles, and there was loud-music blaring through loud-speakers, and a film which Karl was forced to watch featured very short clips and messages on-screen. Alex, Kate and Sawyer rescued Karl, and made their way out of the building.


Karl's ImprisonmentEdit

It is still unknown why Karl was being forced to watch the video, however, it is known that Karl was a prisoner of the Others.(Karl apparently was being brainwashed to keep him away from Alexandra. Ben says he was trying to keep her from getting pregnant since all women who conceive on the island die late in pregnancy.) In "A Tale of Two Cities", Karl is seen in a cage outside the Hydra Station alongside Sawyer, and after a failed breakout attempt, he is taken away and not seen until Room 23.
