Mr. Steele's real name?
After having watched every episode, I just couldn't help but deduce what I thought Mr. Steele's real name was. And, I first want to give a SPOILER ALERT for those who've not seen all the episodes. I wouldn't want to spoil any episodes, for anyone.
I think we are given a couple of clues, as to what his given name might have been, had his mother survived his birth. We find out in about the very last hour of the show that Daniel Chalmers not only is Steele's mentor; he's his father, and that his mother didn't survive his birth. However, Daniel had attempted some foolish con game and was in prison when Steele was born.
Daniel catches up with his son, when the boy is about 14 and needing some guidance. So, he mentors him, but doesn't tell him he's his father. Well, I figure, since Daniel was very fond of calling the boy Harry, that Mr. Steele's given name probably would have been Harold Chalmers. I actually like Laura's name for him better.
But, what was sad about the characters is that Laura wanted him to tell her his real name so badly. But, she didn't realize that he wasn't trying to hide it from her. He simply didn't know it himself!
And, it was an obstacle in their relationship. However, it gave us five years of great television! As far as I know, we have no clue to a middle name.
