I Will Be Your Father Issues

Miles just stares at Bram and shakes his head, so Bram asks, "Do you know what lies in the shadow of the statue?" Once again, I answer "Ben Linus's mouth," but only because I'm a hack like that, and can't resist. It doesn't matter, because Miles is clueless, because Mommy Dearest wouldn't tell him anything, even though it seems like all he'd have to do is wait 'til she's dead and then read her dead mind. "No. Can't say that I do." So Bram tells him that since he doesn't know, he's not ready to go to that island. "But if you come with us, all those things you've spent your life trying to find out? You'll know. You'll know who you are, Miles; why it is you have a gift; and most of all, you'll know about your father."

Miles says, "I don't know where you've been getting your intel, but I stopped caring about my father a long time ago." Bram rolls his eyes, but Miles won't be distracted. "What I do care about is money. So I'll tell you what. You want me to pass on going to the island? It's gonna cost you double what they offered -- $3.2 million." Bram says his team isn't paying. "All the money in the world isn't going to fill that empty hole inside of you, Miles." Right, which is why you should have been more careful with his supper, Bram. Plus? That too sounds dirty. Miles stares him down, so Bram moves back to the front seat (although I never noticed when he got in back -- weird). Miles wants a little more attention so he snips, "That's sad, isn't it?" Heh. Bram shouts his orders to his goons. "Toss him!" The van has barely stopped when they throw Miles out the side door. Bram then yells at Miles. "You're playing for the wrong team." Oh, so that's how he's going to get his hole filled? I didn't think you were going there, Bram. Miles looks like he's thinking the same thing, as he eyes Bram up and down. "Yeah? What team are you on?" Bram is comfortable with his masculinity. "The one that's gonna win." The goons slide the side door shut, the van speeds off, and we jump to...

Island; Nighttime; 1977: Hurley tells Miles about the hatch, and that there's going to be an accident. "Then they're gonna have to build a computer with a button you have to push so the world doesn't end." Miles looks at Hurley, but a "Phhhht," is about all he can muster in response. Hurley wants to know if Miles' dad is around in, "You know, when we came from? The future?" When Miles says no, Hurley keeps working Miles' daddy issues which all the best cowboys have, and I include Darlton in that. They may have Joss Whedon beat.
