brother campbell/mrs. hawking?
So we know that Brother Campbell was a very influential figure in Desmond’s life. In fact, it was Brother Campbell who gave Desmond the task of loading wine into Penny’s car, thereby introducing them. He also had a picture of himself and Mrs. Hawking on his desk. I think it’s pretty safe to assume that he and Mrs. Hawking were working together to steer Desmond’s life in the right direction. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to assume that Brother Cambpell was involved in Dan’s life somehow too, would it? That maybe he and MRs. Hawking are a team? Or something?
And it’s also yet another connection between Desmond and Daniel, who are I think, sort of like eachother’s counterpoints. Hence “The Constant” and “The Variable”. They both have very important jobs to do, and I think the jobs are connected. Daniel wrote in his notebook, “If anything goes wrong, Desmond Hume will be my constant”. It’s also very likely that Dan is, in fact, Des’s brother in law (half-brother in law anyway)!
I don’t really have a full fledged theory on this, but I think that it is very, very important. If anybody else has any more honed in thoughts on this, I would be very grateful. I feel that this information is very vital and yet I can’t quite put it together. Just more evidence of the brilliance of lost I guess.
