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.
