Desmond and Daniel

Thinking more about this week's ep, The Variable. It seems to me that the whole tie-in with Desmond in the hospital hints heavily at something very important. Hawking raised Daniel knowing what would happen to him. I'm betting she will have access to his journal on the island in the 70s, maybe she will even take possession of it. That means she will be able to read about all the things Daniel will find/found out. Like Desmond being his constant. Which means that, just like we have seen before on the show, she is bound to push Desmond into performing HIS role on the island just so that he can be Daniel's constant.

Is this why Widmore treated Desmond the way he did in regards to Penny and other things? I'm betting the answer is yes. Hawking and Widmore have been manipulating these two for a looooong time. Considering that Hawking will now probably meet up with at least Jack and Kate on the island, it's not too much of a stretch to imagine that she (and Widmore?) will be attempting to manipulate their lives too. I can't wait to see how all this plays out!
