Foreign Theory: Anon’s New Annie Theory


Exactly six months ago Anon, a frequent commenter, posted a large-ish Annie theory on my blog.  In the last six months many things have changed, so she revised here theory and sent it to me again.

Hold on to your hats everyone, this theory is a doozy (it’s actually more like a screenplay):

Good vs. Evil – Ben Linus


Last week I wrote about Charles Widmore, discussing wheat we know about him so far and whether he’s good or evil.  This week I want to talk about his nemesis, Benjamin Linus.  I really suggest you check out Widmore’s page, it’s quite relevant to what I’m talking about today.

I’m going to go through Ben’s actions, as we’ve seen them, and judge him based on what we know.  There’s still a lot that we don’t know about the character but I think we have enough to make an informed decision.

In Preparation for Season 5: Lovers

Here is the fifth episode from sl-Lost‘s In preparation for Season 5 videos.  This time it’s about the couples that have formed during the course of the show.

404 – Eggtown



This episode is dull.  It’s very necessary, but it’s quite boring.  It does answer the question from the end of season 3, how did Kate get free of those pesky murder charges?  But beyond that Kate’s story was dragged out.

I did like three scenes in this episode though.

The first one was the part with Diane speaking to Kate.  I believe that Diane is a vitally important character and finding out that she’s stayed alive, miraculously, was quite interesting to me.

The second one was when Miles talked to Ben trying to get money out of hm in exchange for silence.

The third was the memory game that Charlotte was playing with Daniel.  I find that scene to be extremely important and I’m sure it will have a big bearing on Daniel’s season 5 storyline.

But I can’t ignore that this episode was sub-par.  4.0/10.0

Foreign Theories: Anon’s Annie theory

A very faithful NCJL reader and commenter, Anon, recently posted a glorious theory about Annie in the comments section of my revlysis for The Man Behind the Curtain.  This theory is intensely detailed and well planned out.  Here it is in full:

Annie – I came up with this way out there theory about Annie.

Widmore owned the island. Annie’s Widmore’s daughter too (making her Penny’s sister) and he bought her to the island when she was very young (notice she’s very experienced with the way things are). Widmore would come and go from the island whenever he wanted but he wouldn’t let Annie leave. Annie and Ben became close and eventually married. Annie somewhat knew how obsessed Ben was with eventually ruling the island and how consumed he was with the island’s power. She didn’t like it and tried to stop him visiting Jacob all the time.

She got pregnant but the island made her miscarry so she began to despise the island because it not only took away her baby, it was slowly taking away her man. Then one day Ben comes back to the Barracks with newborn Alex, and he and Annie raise her for a few years. The fertility problems continue now for the whole of the Initiative and Richard is planning to purge them so the natives can rule again. Ben is adamant about not purging, because of Alex and Annie. Richard insists Alex will be okay but never promises Annie’s safety. Annie overhears this and heads to Mikhail. She knows he can contact the outside world but can he leave? He comes clean and tells her about the submarine (she was too young to remember she came to the island in it) and she makes her plans to leave. Ben lets her because he knows that’s the only way she’ll survive.

Before she leaves she tells Alex to never agree with her father if she feels he’s doing the wrong thing or too consumed with the island – we see that attitude in her all through the show – what if the reason Ben let her act that way was because it reminded him of Annie?

She leaves and goes to live with Penny for a while, meeting Des and enjoying a normal life but still missing Ben. Eventually Des goes missing and Annie thinks he may have landed on the island so sets out to help Penny find him whilst telling Penny everything about the island. Charles does not know she’s off the island. Eventually, when Penny rescues Des and the O6, Annie is on that boat too, meets the O6 and helps them form the big lie. She tries to ask them about the island but none of them will budge, too disturbed by it all. She is shocked when one of them mentions John Locke however, because Richard and Ben had been working together to try to get him to the island for years.

After the week on the boat, she, Penny and Des sail around for a while, then Annie gets a call from Kate saying she’d feel better if Annie lived in L.A (they became good friends). Annie goes to live in L.A and Kate eventually stays with Annie after breaking up with Jack. As time goes on, it becomes clear the O6 want to go back to the island, something that scares Annie so she backs out and breaks all contact with them. One night Penny calls her and tells her someone tried to kill her, she’s okay but injured. Annie feels guilty for leaving Penny and heads to her and Des. They decide the only safe place for Penny and Des to be is…the island.

Somehow, Des, Penny and Annie arrive at the island before the 06 do (Pen and Annie have seriously mad navigational skillz) and make friends with the left behinders thanks to Des. Locke has left the island, Annie is a little disappointed to have missed meeting the “special” one. Annie heads back to the barracks for the first time in years and breaks into Ben’s house and sees his pictures of Alex as a teen. Very emotional. She heads back to the beach camp where everyone is and doesn’t tell anyone about her past. One day Richard comes to the camp and is less than pleased to see Annie again but doesn’t reveal who she is. Things are going swimmingly otherwise and Annie even tells Sawyer that Kate is still alive AND is keeping his promise.

One early morning, Annie is asleep on the beach when she hears some voices. She opens her eyes and can see the O6 coming up the shore with a coffin. The voices wake the rest of the camp and it’s reunion time. Annie heads back to her tent and gets something out of her backpack. She heads back out, a little upset at all the reunions with no one to greet her (Kate’s busy with Sawyer lol) and then she sees Ben. They hug, tears everywhere, and we see Annie is holding her Ben doll. It’s all very sweet then suddenly Annie hears a muffled cry. Then a thud. Another. And another. She opens her eyes and breaks away from Ben. Staring at…the coffin. The thuds and cries get more frantic. Sayid opens the coffin and Locke bursts out, gasping for air. He stands up, shakes himself off, looks back at all the stunned faces.

“Hello, again”.

320 – The Man Behind the Curtain



After rewatching this episode I noticed that it is the basis of many of my theories and many of other peoples theories too.  This episode is wonderfully vital and full of info.  I think everyone should rewatch it because it is insanely important.

We see Ben’s childhood with the Dharma Initiative.  We see the Dharma Initiative!!  We also see The Purge.

In the main timeline we see Ben starting to lose authority with The Others.  Locke takes full advantage of his new upper hand against Ben.  Locke get’;s to meet Jacob.  And we get to see him for half a second.

And at the very end Locke gets shot.

Oh and Juliet comes clean to the beach camp.

Insane episode 10.0/10.0

Is Libby actually Annie? (updated)

There is a video floating around the interweb of Cynthia Watros, the Woman who played Libby, talking about her career.  She is talking about her famous scene in the mental institute (or whatever it is) and she says that her character Annie, then she quickly corrects herself and says Libby.  The portion is at about the 2:20 mark.  I originally found this story on the blog Approaching Lost, so I tip my hat in their general direction.  Go here to see the video.  I could just embed the video here but you should all visit their site, and I really shouldn’t steal their scoop.

So this is very very surprising. I actually find this incredibly hard to believe, but it’s possible that it is a revelation.  I’m going to have to think about this while I write so I apologize in advance if what I say contradicts itself.

Now I want to put my two cents in on this idea.  The reason why I find this incredibly hard to believe is that Ben must have stepped over her body while he was leaving the swan station, and also if he was aware that she was one of the survivors then I’m sure he would have brought her to live with The Others.  So perhaps Libby is smarter than Ben, maybe she is a few steps ahead of him, and she knew she was coming back to the island.  I don’t really believe that but I had to throw it out there as a possibility.  Another possibility is that she doesn’t remember him, we know she was in a mental health facility, so perhaps she has no memory of her early life.  That would be tragically ironic, but most things are pretty tragic when it comes to Libby.

So if it is true, and Libby really is Annie then suddenly Libby is even more significant than before, and I wish even more that she was still alive.  Sigh…

UPDATE: Due to the fact that I posted this as I was falling asleep I didn’t have any good theories to throw out there.  But my good friend Miss Scarlett quickly saved me (see the comments).  What she was saying is that maybe Libby isn’t Annie, maybe who we thought was Libby in the Mental Health Hospital was really Annie, two different characters, same actor.  And when you think about it, it is completely possible.  That could have been what we were all supposed to think, but we were so locked on to Libby as a character that we all just assumed that was her in the hospital.  So lets say Libby did have a twin, let’s say Libby’s twin was Annie from Ben’s past.  That means she somehow went crazy and could still be in that same hospital.  Hurley went back to that hospital in Season 4, he soon after saw Charlie.  He figures he’s seeing dead people because he’s crazy.  He even says he has received regular visits from dead people.  So perhaps one of the dead people who have talked to him is who he thinks is Libby, but is actually Annie.  Too bad Sayid made him leave the hospital.

It’s really quite amazing what we can come up with from a simple mistake in an interview.  Maybe it really was just a mistake, or maybe Cynthia Watros is screwing with us, or maybe Darlton is (are?) screwing with us.  Who knows.  But it really is exciting to have hope of seeing Cynthia Watros again, even if she turns out to be Annie and not Libby.
