As a new member here and having watched up to last night's episode "Namaste", I have questions for all you REALLY avid Lost fans as I may have missed things. If Widmore was leader of the Others for 30 years from the age of around 17 is it safe to assume that Penny was conceived on the island? If she was conceived on the island then who is her mother - perhaps Ellie? Assuming Ellie is Eloise Hawking then that would potentially make Penny and Daniel brother and sister. Perhaps an off island split between the parents also separated the kids and would explain why Widmore had Hawking's address for Desmond but hadn't used her to return himself - maybe they just hate eachother as exes. It would also add more to the fact that he funded Daniel's research. I'm sure this is going to get pulled apart or has been discussed before but I just have a feeling Penny's mother is going to be a massive reveal in the show and this seems the most logical explanation. What does everyone else think?
