Not Penny's Boat

How did you get this frequency? Penny asks as soon as contact is made. Good question, and while we're asking about frequencies, who exactly is she talking to on that particular frequency? Could it be the fellows in the arctic station we saw briefly at the end of season two?

Were Greta and Bonnie monitoring Penny's conversation with the arctic boys? How would the girls know what frequency Penny was on?

Especially since the transmission seems to have originated from Penny's end. I also noticed that as soon as Charlie pressed the button for the incoming transmission, Penny immediently became aware of Charlie being in contact. This sort of rules out Greta and Bonnie spying on Penny without her knowing about it.

Whew, did that make sense? I suspect something fishy here. The Looking Glass Ladies clearly were up to something more than just jamming Mikhail's signals.

Speaking of signals, everytime I saw Naomi's SAT phone, it appeared to be trying to broadcast a signal from just outside Portland.


Just a coincidence, or are we more than six hours off course here? We are definitely not near Fiji.

Okay, I'm not gonna go into the whole underwater hatch that can block satellite signals thing here cause it does make for good television, but throw us a bone here D&C, tell us what else the Looking Glass is. I am dying to know since my favorite hatch, The Swan is now just a smoking hole in the ground.

And why do all the good looking girls keep getting killed off of this show? Geez, I liked Bonnie, it's a shame she couldn't of stuck around for a season or so.

So now Penny knows Desmond is on an island because Charlie told her so. Well, at least that's how it appears.

My Theory: I have long suspected Penny as knowing more and being more than we have been led to believe. I think Penny is the Cobra, rewatch "Razzle Dazzle" to understand what I mean by Cobra here.

Her showing up at the monastary at just the right time and Brother Campbell firing Desmond right when Penny shows up. Here is an excerpt from their dialogue.

PENNY: And how do you know so much about monks?

DESMOND: Cause I'm an ex-monk.

PENNY: Really?

DESMOND: As of last night. I was fired.

[Penny laughs again]

DESMOND: Ah, it wasn't that funny.

PENNY: I'm sorry I never I, I didn't know monks could be fired.

DESMOND: Oh they can. You know I was told under no uncertain terms that the abbey wasn't where I was meant to end up. Just a, step along a path. You know, God allegedly has bigger plans for me.

PENNY: Something tells me you don't entirely believe that.

DESMOND: I suggest that's because I don't.

PENNY: Well maybe they're right. I mean, just think, if you hadn't have got fired, we wouldn't have met, and then, how could you possibly help me unload these crates in Carlisle.

DESMOND: Did I say I was coming to Carlisle with you?

PENNY: Not yet.

Not Yet, Huh? did she know something here? I think she is in cahoots with Brother Campbell and Ms, Hawking. I think she is behind the effort to find the island, and I don't just mean using the boys in the arctic listening station. I think it might be Penny's boat.

Ah well, it's just a theory.
