The Oceanic nine?

We now know who the Oceanic six are, but Jack said that nine people survived the crash and three of them died along the way. These three, Boone, Libby, and Charlie are now dead. But why these three in particular? Boone, I'm guessing because he was a lifeguard and a decent swimmer. Libby and Charlie, because they were both close to Hurley and any mention of their names would have caused him to break down. I'm guessing at this. What about Walt? he was on the plane too, so I guess i'm to assume that he is living with his grandma using an Alias (haha, get it?) P.S. Thanks for getting Desmond off the island intact, he deserves a happy ending. And thanks to the writers of this season for acknowledging that Libby, Ana-Lucia, and Eko were actually characters on this show. They were all mentioned this season and i for one still miss my three favorite Tailies. PPS. is anyone going to explain why Cindy said Nathan wasn't on the plane. i think this is a very vital piece to a larger puzzle. 2  out of 2 found this valuable. Do you?

I don't think they've actually said who the other three are. Two of them can be assumed, as they are part of the rescue story. 1) The US Marshall who was escorting Kate. His death and the efforts to save him are mentioned at Kate's Trial in "Eggtown." 2) Jin, as Sun got pregnant on the island.

The producers have said in an episode of the official podcast that the identities of the three survivors who died are actually inconsequential and do not have a deeper significance. They were just names that suited the story.

Yes, they did reveal that Boone, Libby, and Charlie were the other three. Go back and see the the next to the last episode where the Oceanic six were interviewed. 2  out of 2 found this valuable. Do you?

They did mention who the other three people were in the enhanced version of that episode after the original one aired. This was cut out from the original version, but added to the enhanced one. As lulamae said, those characters have no significance to the Oceanic 6 story. It could have been any character, but they just choose Boone, Libby, and Charlie.

As for Cindy and Nathan, they were on the plane. Ana-Lucia did accuse Nathan of not being on the plane, and being an Other, but it was Goodwin that was the actual Other. Cindy was a flight attendant on the plane, and has since then joined the Others after they kidnapped her, along with many other survivors.
