So Lost last night seemed to indicate that no matter what universe Desmond was in, he was destined to find Penny. Is that knowledge what made him so “agreeable” at the end? He was happy to go along with Widmore and then equally happy to go with Sayid (who just killed a bunch of people in front of him). Does he know something now? Does the Island universe no longer matter? Did he figure out what Eloise was being vague about at the garden party?

And why in the world would Daniel Faraday need a rock bassist to play at a garden party?
