There were a ton of portraits of alex on the walls -- it seemed creepy to me that there were so many -- kind of shrine like.

Offline this is some crazy stuff

Alex is probably the only "family" Ben has.  And who wants pictures of Ben hanging on their wall?

No, there were the pictures and then a painting of a female in a dress.  Not Alex.

Maybe that's her fake mom.  It's like the woman he's been telling her all this time was her mom.  That's what I think.

I believe this is the portrait in question:


Anyone notice the copy of Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time ? (blue cover on the desk, across from the statue)  :o

All kinds of fun stuff in Ben's house, little Alex, time on the clock appears to be 3:25 on the dot.

Nice.  Aldo (the guard who was keeping Karl in the psycho room who fell for the old wookie prisoner trick) was reading it, too.

I wondered the same thing... Who's the chick in the portrait and is it even important?

I was just thinking back to when Ben made Kate wear a dress to make her feel "like a lady" and they had breakfast together.... Maybe he has a thing for girls with long brown hair in dresses lol It's not Kate is it?  Her dress was white but it had a floral print.  Alex told Kate in that episode that "that used to be my dress".

I agree with Ladybug.  I think it is Ben's mom.  The pictures of Alex aren't out of the ordinary, since she is Ben's daughter.
