I have no idea why exactly, but it seems that Eloise is well aware of the alternate timeline and what it is. She even tells us there are "rules" at play. I'm fascinated by Eloise Hawking now. She was always interesting, but NOW... I need to know what she knows and HOW she knows it.
I think you are right, I kept going back to the fact that Penny was Dez's constant when he was time travelling.
Who was Daniel Farraday's? Or was Dez just suppose to find him, and Daniel did not have a constant?
Dez is definitely putting it all together, and I think his next stop in the sideflash will be Jack.
