Charles & Penelope Widmore - The Same Person
« on: March 16, 2008, 10:24:12 PM »
I have a feeling that they are one of the same person.

I know as a theory, it's a little out-there, but no moreso than any other.

I think it's like a Jekyll & Hyde scenario: Neither of them knows that the other one is really themselves, although they may have some crossover consciousness at times.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Jekyll_and_Sister_Hyde

Penny is searching for Desmond on an island; She's aware that whichever island Desmond could possibly be stranded on would also have electromagnetic anomalies...

 ???

How would she know all this? More to the point, if she's that certain, why not finance her own boat to rescue Desmond? She appears to be rich enough to do so.

The only way she could know of the island is through her father. Why would Charles Widmore (whom detests Desmond) tell Penny anything about Desmond's whereabouts?

But then again, does Charles Widmore detest Desmond? Was Charles having a "Penny moment" when he told Desmond "It's not me who hates you" and slipped him Penelope's phone number?

And what was she doing sat in an office, in front of a web-cam, using the precise frequency of transmission, at the precise moment the Looking Glass makes contact with the outside world? Does Penny even know why she was sat there? Maybe a few seconds earlier, Charles was sat there.

When she receives the call from Desmond on the freighter, is she wearing a wedding ring? Is it Charles' wedding ring which she's forgotten to remove whilst "being" Penny?

Have we ever witnessed any scene with Charles and Penny interacting?

If Minkowski wasn't lying, why were the freighter crew instructed to block any calls from Penelope? Why would her father even tell her about the freighter? Was Charles fearful that his "Penny" persona might attempt to make contact via video-phone whilst he was um... transitioning.

I know it's wacky - but it'd answer a lot of questions.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and totally disagree with everything you said.

At the end, if you're right, I owe you a soda.

I know - if I'm on the money, poor, poor Desmond.  :'(

You've got to admit that it would explain a lot of weirdness, wouldn't it?

Thanks for the welcome!

p.s. Whilst I'm on the subject of The Widmores, is this painting in Charles' office a depiction of Henry Gale's smiley-face balloon landing on a tree?

While I don't think Widmore is as evil as Ben paints him, I don't think Penny and Charles are the same person.

I think Wiidmore sent Des off course to try to find the island.I think he thought Des was expendable. I also think that Widmore wouldn't have Des harmed, because I bet Des ends up working for Widmore like Michael and Sayid do.
