Have we had a sneaky flashforward already?
« on: February 04, 2008, 09:53:41 AM »
Hi, long time reader, first time poster, etc etc.

Remember that flashback from an earlier season when Libby was in the mental institution staring at Hurley?

What if that was actually a teaser flashforward?

After S4.1, we establish that Hurley is off the island, in the home again, and can see dead islanders.

I don't have access to the episode when Libby appears in the mental home, so can't check, but isn't it possible writers put in a sneaky flashforward early on?

It is possible, but I think that was a flashback. If I remember it correctly, that was the same time Hurley was taking his picutre with dave. So that happened before the island.

Also, the nurse gives her pills and calls her by name, so she wasn't invisible or just a vision.

Ah well, thanks for setting me straight. Curse my memory - I'll go back to clutching at straws ;)

I have often wondered if some of Locke's experiences were forwards....particularly when he was a home inspector....or were a mixture of realities.

And Cooper was still alive.  So it was before Sawyer killed Cooper on the island.

Libby is dead, so I'm guessing it's a flashback, not forward.

Charlie can appear to Hurley as dead, but there. I think so can certain people that died can appear to certain people off island.
While I think that it is more of the island's (or Jacob's) doing, I think we'll see Libby again and not in a flashback.
If we do see her in a flashback, who's would it be? Unless we get another Hurley flashback where he remembers back to his earlier stay at the mental hospital or Desmond flashes back to the day Libby gave him the boat, we are probably done with her connections. If someone else knew her, it couldn't be anyone on 815.

Sure they could do an on island flashback for Cindy, or the kids, but I don't think that will happen.

I hope that Libby haunts Michael and forces him to atone for her murder.
Charlie visted Hugo.
I bet Christian visits Jack. Christian has already been haunting Jack on the Island.
Sayid might get visited by Shannon.
Kate might get visited by Claire. If Claire is dead.

....of course, one of Hurley fellow inmates also saw Charlie so what if the nurse wasn't a nurse, but an inmate passing out M&M's?  ;D

I hope that Libby haunts Michael and forces him to atone for her murder.

we haven't had one yet, but how about a "Christmas special" - Michael is visited by the three ghosts of DHARMA - Libby as the Ghost of DHARMA Flashback, Tom as the Ghost of DHARMA Present and Ana as the Ghost of DHARMA Flashforward....or would that really be jumping the shark?  ;) :D

Shannon coming back for a haunt sounds like a good idea to me, that one really pissed me off...that was a good (albeit somewhat predictable) character arc, snide stuck up chick to gettin' it on with a former Republican Guard...

Libby gettin' justice on Mikey would be good too, as long as they give the actress a driver while she's there filming....
