I need your minds! The importance of half-siblings
Ok, it has been buggin me since we found out Jack’s father is Claire’s father – Christian Shephard.
Now, I have been reading about Eloise Hawking. Charles Widmore is (and I am quite confident of this) Faradays father. The way Eloise slaps him when he says Daniel is his son too pretty much confirms it. She is angry that they sent him to the island knowing it was likely he would die.
This, makes Daniel Faraday Penny’s half brother! (until proved otherwise, currently suggested by the script)
Now my question is – why all these half brothers/sisters?? What significance do blood lines suggest? Can you have a constant due to shared blood line/genetics? Is this part of some heritage and war on the island?
Anyway opinions, questions and theories regarding these would be appreciated.
