There was a few hours a while ago when we/I thought that Libby might be the legendary Annie, due to a mis-spoken word in a recent interview with Cynthia Watros.  Unfortunately that has been proved mostly wrong.  But I still love Libby so I’m looking for a way to bring her back.  I found a way.

In the season 2 episode “Dave” we see an dark haired Libby in Santa Rosa, I propose that that was not Libby.  At the same time I doubt that it’s Annie, what I’m saying is that perhaps it’s a completely new dark haired character.  Maybe Libby had a twin sister.  There were slight hints that Libby knew that Hurley was in Santa Rosa, maybe she did, maybe she visited her sister.  Maybe her crazy sister was what motivated her to become a psychiatrist.

There’s even a slight chance that dark haired Libby is still in Santa Rosa.  Maybe Hurley sees her when he goes back, but he thinks he’s seeing dead people, so he dismisses it.

If this was ever proved true, I don’t think it was the main plan of the writers, I think it would have to be some serious Retconning.  That’s not to say they shouldn’t do it, I’m all for retconning if it brings Libby or her doppelganger back.

I was totally wrong about Libby, I got way too caught up in the excitement.

It would have been great if I had been right though.

    I think “Dave” – Hurley’s imaginary friend from Santa Rosa – was Libby’s late husband – “David” who owned the boat she gave to Desmond at the end of season two

    which just connects Libby and Hurley together in a more profound way

    That’s a very good thought, I’ve never made that connection.

    I just rewatched the “Dave” episode. They called her “Libby” in the hospital when giving her her meds. I don’t think this theory works out too well. I mean, after David died, she could have had a breakdown and been put into the hospital, and from that point, David, “Dave,” would be a ghost that Hurley talked to. This is probably the story the writers want you to assume. I mean, if you want to make up a completely other story that has no relation to the island or the people on it, then sure. Dark-haried Libby could just be some random by-stander in the hospital that looked similar to Libby from the island. But to me, that seems a little far-fetched since Libby was on the plane going back to Los Angeles (where dark-haired Libby lives). I suppose if it were her twin sister, she could have told the hospital staff to call her Libby. Anything’s possible really.
