LOST Thoughts : Pierre’s Baby


I have been re-watching Season 4 these past couple days ( in Blu ray this time … just gorgeous *tear* ). I just finished the second disc, which had among its episodes, The Constant.

I had a small thought, remembering back to this year’s Comic-Con video with Pierre Chang ( or who could also be known as J.J. Abrams’ other “Alias” šŸ™‚ ) . In it, Pierre was holding a crying male baby. He insistently asks someone named Laura, to take the baby(“him”) out of the room while they were filming. The person behind the video-camera, to me, sounds very much like a rather frustrateddanielfaraday-t Daniel Faraday.

The year before, The Orchid film is shown at Comic-Con. Being filmed by who sounds like Richard Alpert, Edgar Halliwax (Pierre Chang) is holding a bunny that has the number 15 on it. As he is explaining on the video about the real purpose of the Orchid Station, another “Bunny Number 15” appears to have fallen from the ceiling. Panic sets in and Halliwax frantically tells his crew to get the new rabbit out of there. The rabbits can not occupy the same space or something monumentally disastrous would occur.

So, going back to the most recent video, I’m sure one reason that Pierre was calling for them to take the crying baby away is, like he said, that “they only had one shot at this!” ( I wonder why? ) But with all this “unstuck in time talk” from The Constant, speculation of the Island traveling to the past and/or future and the bunnies in the previous film…what if the baby Pierre was holding was …..Daniel Faraday?!
That Daniel Faraday, like the numbered bunnies, couldn’t occupy the same space with his baby self or something horrible, perhaps even an “incident”, would take place. And at the time, it wasn’t complete pandemonium like in the Orchid video (taped several years later) because they didn’t know how truly dreadful of an error that would be. But I suspect they found out not too long afterwards.

Happy LOST Thought of the Day : Only eight more days! šŸ™‚

    That would be interesting. But if Daniel was unstuck in time wouldn’t his conciousness be in that baby? Perhaps he just wen back in time, that would make more sense (well relatively more sense).
    I had never heard that Richard was the person filming the Halliwax video, that’s very interesting.

    Hi Izi,
    Here’s a wild thought. What if time traveling,”bad twin”/ bunny #15 Daniel was filming
    while Pierre was holding “unstuck in time”, baby self/ other bunny #15 Daniel ?

    Ow! I think my skull just cracked…lol.

    Yeah, It sounds like Richard Alpert behind the scenes on the Orchid video, telling Edgar
    that the stage makeup ” takes away the shine”. šŸ™‚

    Don’t ya love it when you come up with a new theory? They always make such perfect sense. It was nice to see LOST on TV tonight, even though I’ve been watching these episodes on DVD for weeks now. One more week!! Yay!

    Hi Jen,

    Yes, I like it when “the little lightbulb” goes on and get a new theory. Now, how much
    “wattage” is shining on that theory is another story …lol.

    It’s almost hard to believe that a new season is going to start. And not just with one but
    TWO new episodes, back to back. It’s almost too good. Yet somehow, I think we’ll all
    manage to cope with it. šŸ™‚

    i’m actually pretty convinced that the baby is Miles. Not only could that simply make Miles the child of Pierre, but remember when Miles saw the playground in New Otherton and said “What is this place, a day care?” I think that it was an ironic forshadowing statement. Miles was born there and played there as a small child.

    Hi CarrieJeanne,

    I think that it is very possible that Miles is the baby in the video ( Number #1 : The baby
    was cranky šŸ˜‰ ) . I wrote about it earlier here . https://mswendy.wordpress.com/2008/08/04/lost-thought-miles-aint-foolin-when-it-comes-to-time-space/ One of the many great things I enjoy about the show are the many options to the “clues” they give us. And it keeps us busy until we get the answers…lol.

    I just was trying to think “multi-dimensionally” and came up with the Faraday theory.
    ( Warning: Thinking multi-dimensionally ” can lead to : Nausea, dizzy spells, shortness
    of breath, swelling of the earlobes and general feeling of inadequacy )

    Excellent thoughts about the “day care comment”. Maybe a little ” sour grapes” coming
    from Miles ( what else? šŸ™‚ ) something along the lines of ” When I was here, all we had
    were those weird flash card games in Room 23 and some Dharma Initiative Playdoh)

    Thanks for commenting, CarrieJeanne. šŸ™‚
