That makes sense with Emilie/Claire not really having a romance storyline this season because of the baby. If she is a free spirit it might suggest that she has no attachment to the baby's father. I don't care who/what happens on the island to Claire I am just happy that Emilie has been made into a cast regular!!
I hope that Claire does have a flashback sequence. It would be interesting to see who the father is and what the whole story is there. Love the idea of having David Anders as the father
