It looks like Daniel falls in love pretty fast. It would take a good week. I think they did some pre departure work. Organizing and preparing for the trip.

Daniel is a little crazy. What other girls were in the boat? Naomi, who he knew he had no chance with. And there was that Zoe Bell character that got all but 45 seconds of screen time. You figure Danny boy being a bit out of his mind simply obsessed over the chick he had a snowball chance of banging.

But that whole scene with little Charlotte was just uncomfortable. It was weird. The bad kind of weird.

I agree.  And I kept thinking- "Why aren't any of the adults alarmed by this man talking to this little girl?!"

At least it's easy to see why the experience scared her so badly as a little child -- and probably why she blocked it out/suppressed the memory until it resurfaced on her deathbed.

Well, he seems less crazy since his visit to Ann Arbor...why didn't he just talk to Charlotte's mom instead? That seems more logical.

Just seeing her as a little child, he was probably desperate to save her.  He felt that because they are variables, they could actually change the future.  He didn't have time, and she was there so he just went to her.  That's my guess anyway.

Maybe he fell in love with her because he's always been in love with her? You know, that whole time loop thing lol.

Daniel never received love from his mother, just pressure.  He only agreed to go to the island for Widmore because his mother confirmed that just going would make her proud of him.  He seeks her approval so desperately.  I am sure he would easily fall for any woman who would show him the least bit of encouragement.

OK, so I took some psychology in college.

But I don't think this is like Ground Hog Day....although, you know last night I was thinking.

Remember waayyyyy back in Season 1 when Smokey was approaching the beach and Rose said (loosely) "It sounds familiar".  So last night I was like "I wonder if it sounded familiar because THEY EXPERIENCED THIS BEFORE!!!"

But I don't really believe that.  My opinion though..

Funny I kept thinking that if Charlotte's not supposed to eat chocolate before dinner, why's she out there on the swing set and not hiding behind a Dharma condo stuffing her face..?

Because Charlotte's Mom would have FREAKED OUT. Whereas Charlotte only recalled the "crazy man" on her deathbed.

In regards to people asking where her mom was, I'm thinking they don't want us knowing who her mom is, just yet...I think it's going to be a huge reveal when it does happen...

Good point tordge. I was wondering why we didn't see her mom last night. I was kind of expecting to.

It was the seventies, and we were not as paranoid about the possibility of child molesting as we are now.  It is possible for adults to enjoy children in a purely friendly way and not to have inappropriate feelings for them!
