As we all know, the Island in 'Lost' is the place where Daddy Issues wash up on shore. With last night's episode, "Confirmed Dead", four new cast members were introduced and each got their own flashback. So far, none of them seem to be encumbered with such baggage.

But there's something funky about Daniel Faraday's reaction to the news that the wreckage of Oceanic Flight 815 was found in the Sunda Trench near Indonesia. He didn't even know why he was crying as he watched the TV coverage.

Perhaps it all ties in with his father.....

Every so often I like to toss off a suggestion to the Powers That Be, no matter what the show, in regards to casting characters. So I'd like to suggest who could be cast to play Pere Faraday in Daniel's next flashback:
Tom Skerritt.

There is enough of a similarity there to suggest that they could be father and son, with enough DNA contributed from good old Mom so that the resemblance can be blurred.

The next big mystery is: who was playing Daniel's wife in his flashback? We couldn't see her - so is that because we've seen her before? Cassidy Philips is the first possibility that springs to mind, but I'm sure there are more viable candidates.

What do you think?
