Who are the Women in the Looking-Glass Hatch?
First of all, a quick note that I posted a couple of screen caps about Charlie's busking flashback and the mugger, but for some reason Blogger pushed it down below an earlier post, so you might have missed it. Scroll down and it's 2 beneath this one.
There has been a lot of speculation about who the women are in the looking-glass hatch. We see the blonde up close, and no, it's not the schoolteacher, as some boards are suggesting, or Sarah, Jack's ex-wife. The actress, Tracy Middendorf, may be recognizable to genre fans: I know her from Alias, where she played a character for two episodes where she was an undercover spy and her husband was an undercover spy and they were both trying to protect their kids. She was also in Angel, but waaaaay back in the pilot episode. She was the waitress he follows around and gets to know, and finds out she'd come to L.A. and was in with that creepy vampire guy who was going to kill her. (It's been a couple of years since I've seen the ep.) Here's a screen cap from Lost:
The brunette is someone we can only see from across the room, and she sorta looks like Cassidy, Sawyer's ex:
But I'm assuming that's one too many blasts from the past for that guy. If you pay close attention to the promo that appeared at the end of the episode, you can see her again, much clearer, and it's definitely not Cassidy (this is spoilerish for anyone who avoids the promos):
So here's my speculation: Could it be Annie, the little girl Ben was in love with?
