The Daniel timeline seems clear to me, but maybe I'm missing something. Daniel is born, either on the island or not. He grows up, does all his research stuff, blows his own mind, then goes to the island on the freighter. Then, while on the island (which he doesn't leave) he experiences time flashes which bring him back to 1974. He joins up with Dharma and begins doing scientific research for them. They take him to Ann Arbor on one of their numerous submarine excursions (well, submarine and plane - I'd like to see someone try to get to AA by submarine), where it is also 1974. He does some work there for a while and then spots his buddies in the pictures, so he returns to the island in 1977, also through the very ordinary means of a submarine. He then tries to find his mom and dies. Yes? Am I missing something?

Ahhh... okay, that makes sense, but Eloise convincing him to go back suddenly seemed to be about the 1977 trip, not the Freighter trip. And the juxtaposition of her regretting sending him back was confusing. She knew when she sent him on the freighter trip that it would lead to her shooting her own son in 1977? Cuz that's confusing.

That's how I saw it - that she spent his whole life priming him for this knowing (remembering, even) that she was going to kill him on the island in 1977. Fucked. Up.

That is extremely fucked up. Even more so than Cooper pushing Locke out that window. :-(
