    Just from a for fun lost-like activity I put Warden Kelvin into an anagram server. Two interesting results that likely mean absolutely nothing are (my capitalization and punctuation added for effect):

    That's true ... she also made sure to mention the address of the house contained "47".

    When I was setting up the recording, my guide data showed the airing of the pilot was going to be repeated on Saturday @ 11PM.

    Occam's Razor: he's not a Federal badass, that's a front. He's an ordinary human working for another faction of time travelers, headed by Lucy.

    Cobb would also not have known how to recognize modern video cameras so as to conspicuously show off his room key.

    I have no doubt that he's a Federal employee. "Badass" is a matter of opinion. ;)

    They made clear that he was the young, rookie guard, who along with his more senior partner, first discovered Alcatraz mysteriously empty.

    Obviously, there's a group of Federal government types who have always known the "truth" about the disappearance. It stands to reason they would have a secret group, who were "in the know" to various degrees, investigating the mystery. It would make sense for one of the people who first discovered the mystery to be part of that investigatory group.

    So, he's 70ish. Lots of people are still quite vital and active at that age.

    I do, however, think he is well aware of Lucy's time traveling nature. And I don't think his extreme concern that she might die is only because of his affection for her or closeness to her (although, that's part of it). She's clearly vitally important (since she's obviously traveled through time, like the inmates), and losing her would surely be an incalculable setback.

    I'm not sure that it's time travel yet. One of my theories involves suspended animation of some kind, hence the drawing of so much blood and the memory lapses. That would be a possible explanation of the lack of aging.

    There didn't, however, appear to be a reason for Cobb's reappearance. He continued to kill people in the same manor as he did back before he was imprisoned. Unless, of course, it turns out later that one of his victims was, in fact, associated with the whole bigger picture and this was a way to cover it up.

    If that's Occam's Razor then it must be one of those quadruple-bladed razors with an aloe strip... Maybe he just looks young for his age.

    I was thinking suspended animation also.

    Re: Cobb... Obviously his "assignment" from the powers-that-be was to shoot Lucy, she being from his era and important to the good guys.

    Couple of things I was curious about. Why build build a 21st century nerve center under a crumbling, 80 year old prison, with iffy power, hundreds of tourists trampling overhead all day and you have to take a boat to work? (Unless you live on the island).

    And then build NuAlcatraz deep in the woods (of Vancouver, BC?) So Dr. Beckett can make a guest appearance?

    I am liking this show. This show seems to have more promise than Lost in the aspect that it hopefully won't just meander around with the plot for a few years. There are a finite number of guards and prisoners, and there is someone with some sort of agenda sending these prisoners back out.

    I am guessing that it is some sort of time travel thing. Where the prisoners have to go out and tie up unfinished business to bring parallel time lines together or something.

    Sam Neill is 64 so it's not that far off. We will have to question it if they have him swim from alcatraz for the mainland or something.

    Instead of time travel or suspended animation, what about clones? They all had lots of blood taken (DNA) and at least Jack had a death certificate and a funeral, suggesting there was an old version of him at some point.
