Eloise Hawking apologizes to Penny, Desmond is in recovery

We go back where we started at the beginning of "The Variable" which is the Marina Medical Center in Long Beach. Penny is stunned to find out that Eloise Hawking's son is Daniel Faraday. Eloise says to Penny "I came, Penelope, to apologize. Your husband has become a casualty in a conflict that's bigger than him, that's bigger than any of us." Penny asks if Desmond is going to be okay and Eloise says that she doesn't know. She then says "For the first time in a long time, I don't know what's going to happen next."

At that moment a couple of nurses come in and one says that Desmond is in recover and is asking for Penny. The nurse says that Desmond is going to be okay and that the other nurse will watch Charlie. Eloise leaves the room after Penny does.

Penny goes into Desmond's room and says "I though I'd lost you." Desmond says "I promised you, Penny. I promised you... I'd never leave you again." Then there is another dramatic Desmond and Penny kiss.

So why is it that Eloise Hawking's ability to see the future is not working right now? Does this have something to do with the impending war that Widmore referred to in "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham?"

Also, does anybody else think that it might have been a bad idea to leave young Charlie with a stranger, even if she is a nurse?
