Pre-Crash: When Boone was a kid, his mother married Shannon's father. Shannon was a couple of years younger than Boone and he was always in love with her. He often got her out of bad situations. More than once he paid men to leave her, but realized Shannon was scamming him in order to get money.

When Shannon herself was scammed, she went to Boone and the two slept together. Shannon told him things would return to the way they were. They got on Flight 815 to return home.
