Met Danielle in the past?
Ok this is really out there but here goes. They are implying that the sickness that afflicted Danielle's crew is the same time travel related dementia that Desmond, Minkowski and Brandon suffered from. So is it possible that Brandon's time shifts led him 16 years into the past on the island? Walt, Christian and various other people appear on the island when they shouldn't be able to. Assuming the monster isn't to blame for every single instance (or is somehow part of the same deal) then could a deranged time travelling Brandon have encountered Danielle's crew in the past? The translated transcript of Danielle's message in the pilot mentions someone's name that sounds like Brennan/Brandon. --Meteor
Reference to St. Brendan?
I was thinking that his name could be a reference to St. Brendan, a monk from the 6th century who journeyed into the Atlantic Ocean on a small boat in search of a 'blessed island' and encountered a 'monster.' Theres more information here:  . --23 10:14, 13 April 2008 (PDT)
- The same prop where this info comes from has Keamy's name listed as JD Keamy, which we know is wrong. It's worthy trivia, that's for sure, but I'm not sure if we should consider it canon. --LeoChris 20:28, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
