LOST Thoughts : Daniel’s Post Nasal Skip ?


So far, who among our Losties has had nosebleeds on the Island that haven’t been blown up or shot with a flaming arrow? ( Rose and Bernard, still in question 🙂 )


If Daniel danielfaraday-t is correct in his theory about time being a factor in that the further in the past and/ or longevity on the Island, the sooner and more severely the symptoms would occur. But where does this place lost-locke-t1Locke and Daniel? Maybe Locke was somehow “blocked” from the affects by being down near the donkey wheel and has now, returned “home”. But that doesn’t explain Daniel.

As we know from this season’s first episode ” Because You Left”, Daniel was on the Island when the Dharma Initiative were constructing the Orchid and filming the Arrow Station video ( Starring Dr. Marvin Candle aka Pierre Chang) . That was in the early 80’s, roughly thirty years ago. And from all indications, Daniel was that crazy man Charlotte saw during her childhood , warning her to never return. My best guess, is that this might have occurred just prior to The Purge, twelve years, now almost thirteen years earlier ( according to Horace Goodspeed).
Daniel was also exposed to heavy doses of electromagnetism/radiation, in both his lab and now, being near “Jughead”, the leaking H bomb in 1954. And yet, he didn’t experience what desmond-tDesmond, Minkowski, etc did on the Freighter ( at least that we’re aware of) .

Is it because he is Ms. Hawking’s son? Is this another form of being “special”? Is Faraday, like some are speculating, similar to richard-t7Richard in being originally even further in the future than even present Island time? Therefore, Daniel is not affected, age-wise or symptom-wise because all this hasn’t “happened” yet for him? Is it because of the “work” he still might have to do?

Hey, who knows? This could all be straightened out after tonight’s episode.

Until then… Daniel should really consider keeping a Little (Time) Travelers Tissue Pack close by. 🙂

    Just when I thought Lost couldn’t be any more confusing, they add time travel to the mix. I guess it’s the only way to explain all the craziness.

    Hi Eric,

    Yes, sometimes I have to make sure I wear a headband while watching so my gray matter doesn’t spill out. And yet with LOST , I don’t think I’d have it any other way. 🙂
