Faraday came up with how to find the island/Miles has been on the island before
Maybe everybody already worked this out and I’m sorry if I’m being repetitive, but I just wanted to know if other people agreed with me.
The first thing that entered my mind when Eloise Hawking was talking about “a brilliant man who found out where the island was going” was that it was totally Daniel. I sort of disregarded it when I remembered it was his mother talking but when I mentioned it to my Dad he told me I was probably right.
It’s just that Faraday seems to be popping up everywhere and those blackboards looked mightily like those ones at Oxford. It seems that anything doing with time and the island has Daniel mixed in with it. How trippy was it when he was there with the Asian guy from the Dharma videos?
I personally think that Daniel Faraday is one of the most intriguing characters on the show (past-wise) other than Miles.
My Dad actually came up with this whole Miles-has-been-on-the-island-before theory. He noticed that the longer someone’s been on the island, the quicker the time jumps take a toll on them.
Charlotte, who spent her childhood on the island, suffered the effects first because she probably spent around 7 or 8 years on the island. I think it’s Juliet whose nose bleed comes next and who has probably spent at least a year on the island. Next, Miles’ nose bleeds (Note: I’m not really sure if Juliet’s or Miles’ nose bleeds first but it’s not really crucial to the point since it started around the same time). His nose bleeds before Sawyer’s who has been on the island for about 2 months. Since Daniel’s nose still hasn’t bled, we must assume that Miles has been on the island before because if he had spent the same amount of time on the island as Daniel, like he lets on, then his nose wouldn’t have bled yet or it would have at least bled after Sawyer’s.
Miles is also really intriguing because think back to that episode (Early Season 4, I think?) when he goes to Walt’s grandmother’s house. He is looking in what we assume to be Walt’s room for a ghost. Who was he looking for? And why did Widmore want a ghost scientist (don’t know the technical term, sorry) on his freighter?
Sorry if you’ve read it somewhere before but I just wanted to get my opinions out there.
P.S.: On an unrelated, completely random note, I think the girl who led Daniel to the hydrogen bomb is Penny’s mother.
