Alex is Ben's daughter?
« on: November 18, 2006, 07:13:20 PM »
I need some serious convincing about why we think this is true?  Any takers?  I've "searched" but didn't find much and would like to be convinced either way...true or not true.....

Foster daughter.  Not her biological father.  As was said in other posts, Alex wanted to talk to Ben.  That's not really an indication.  But just before Ben went under for surgery he asked if Alex asked about him.  It suggests to many of us that there is an emotional attachment there.

Alright....I can see that.  I partially think it is a stretch....but can go with it for the time being.  I really hope it will be explored in the second half of S3...

Yeah I agree that Alex was raised by Ben. She calls him Ben, so she knows he is not her dad. But there is a paternal connection theres

Interesting observation that I have not heard yet.

Kinda makes you wonder what story they have told her about her real parents, doesn't it.

Yeah....I never had thought about her knowing Danielle or not.  Maybe she doesn't know her at all....if she had known of her....she most likely would have tried to find her.

I doubt that she knows that she is on the island, or she would have gone AWOL to find her.

oh - sorry - i get confused often - anyway - I was born there and have Skyline shipped to my house because I grew up eating it.  It must have been Chelle that was saying something about Cincy....either way - I need some more chili!!!!!
