Ok. I know it does sound kind of crazy but think about it:
-Captain Widdershins claimed that Fernald and Fiona's mother died in a manatee accident. Fiona was suspicious.
Miranda claimed that Friday's father died in a manatee accident. Friday was naïve as she lived on the island.
-Friday's father, Thursday's last name was never given (it was never confirmed that Caliban was his surname).
Captain Widdershin's first name was never given.
-The children's names all begin with F- Fernald, Fiona and Friday.
-Widdershins was a volunteer. Miranda was presumably a volunteer as she was presumably the sister of Olivia Caliban (Madame LuLu). Widdershins knew Olivia (he taught her coded stains on a map) so he probably knew Miranda.
-Kit tells the Baudalaires that she met up with Widdershins and she mentions to the islanders that she recently met up with Thursday.
-Thursday left the island after Ishamel made it boring. To me, that sounds like something Widdershins would do ("He who hesitates is lost", remember),
I think this happened- Widdershins met Miranda after she just had Fernald and Fiona. When F and F were taken away for that V.F.D training or something, Miranda and Widdershins washed up on the island and helped the Baudalaire parents. When Ishamel came along, Widderhins left the island without Miranda, as they had argued about staying or leaving, Miranda wanting to stay as she, unknowingly to Widdershins, was pregnant with Friday and wanted to shelter her from the treacheries of the world. Being angry with each others choice, Miranda changed back to her maiden name and both parents resolved to telling F, F and F that their mother/father died in a manatee accident so they would never know about the schism that divided their parents ( in TE it is mentioned that a schism divided Miranda and Thursday).
Please tell me what you think of this theory!
