Who IS Daniel Faraday?

This has been puzzling me. He's been to the island, apparently multiple times. His mother knows both Ben and Charles Widmore. He does all kinds of crazy time travel experiments with a rat he named after his mother. He deserted his disabled girlfriend to go back to the island, and once he's back, he tells everyone else that the future can't be changed but then he HIMSELF contradicts this and speaks to Desmond in effort to change outcomes (presumably to save Charlotte.)

Is there some sort of twisted link with Widmore? Is he going back to the island to figure out how to save his first girlfriend? What does the mother have to do with this?

He has already kind of been proven a liar (saving your friends is not our PRIMARY objective---oh well, we were never going to take you off this island anyway), the future can't be changed, etc. Now he's getting on the sub and leaving the island at his leisure? Isn't this what brought Widmore down too? The island will not be pleased. Neither will John Locke. Maybe he's going to blow up the sub again, before he did it the first time just to prove his point.


Are we to expect Kate to start showing some pregnancy symptoms anytime soon?
