I’ll write more about what I thought of tonight’s show, “Confirmed Dead”, later, but for now here are the four new characters’ names:
- Daniel Faraday – a reference to Michael Faraday, established the basis of the magnetic field concept in physics.
- Miles Straume – “Straum” is Norse for “current”; It could also be a play on “Maelstrom”, which is a powerful whirlpool.
- Frank Lapidus – The only thing that seems interesting about this (and it’s a stretch, I’ll grant you that), is that letters from each of his first and last name spell “Farad’, a unit of capacitance named after Michael Faraday.
- Charlotte Staples Lewis – Is a reference to the author CS Lewis.
