Annie's Death

I disagree with the statement that Annie died in the Purge. I don't think Ben could have been a part of that. There are two better possibilities. One, Annie's death may have been the impetus for Ben to turn off the fence and go looking for his mother. Two, and the more likely in my opinion, Annie might have died trying to bear Ben's child (between last Young Ben flashback in ("The Man Behind the Curtain") and older Ben flashback).Boloboffin 04:03, 10 May 2007 (PDT)

  • Why is everyone so certain that Annie is dead? --Amberjet11 12:38, 10 May 2007 (PDT)
  • I too disagree. While she may have died, she may have just gone to the mainland, or even joined with the Hostiles herself. (Ben says he was one of those who were smarter enough to join The Others, implying more). Born Acorn 13:24, 10 May 2007 (PDT)
  • I think Annie is still alive. Is it possible she is one of the people on the island? She looks a lot like Kate to me.--Lluciano 13:07, 11 May 2007 (PDT)
  • I think Annie is still alive as well. I too think she is Kate. Afterall, Kate is the first person we see eating an Apollo Candy in the hatch (and if I remember correctly she knew what is was), that is until we see Annie, which is an alias Kate uses, give an Apollo Bar to Ben.

    • Knowledge of a uncommon brand of candy-bar is hardly significant reason to consider a person's identity by. Some candy bars, brands of sodas, and breakfast cereals are only sold in certain regions of the United States, much less the world. There is no indication that Kate knows or does not know what an "Apollo" bar is other than the fact that it says "chocolate bar" on the wrapper or the tin that they were in, and Hurley's ignorance of the branding may only be due to his home state. The short short is, while this appears to be a clever indicator by the producers, I think it's a stretch to believe that Kate is Annie, especially after her extended interactions with Ben (why wouldn't he address the issue of her identity? Surely Jacob would have told him who she was.).Frankie Viturello 02:12, 8 June 2007 (PDT)
  • And there's the fact that Ben is middle aged, and Kate's 27
  • I think Annie didn't die, but she left the island and that's why she gave Ben the dolls before leaving, so they "would never be apart". Impheatus 14:59, 19 May 2007 (PDT)
    • Thats not a bad theory, but i always thought that she died in child birth and that was why Ben had trouble giving up Alex and why he worked so hard on fixing the birth problem
  • I'm actually positive that Annie died, if she was alive im sure Ben would have kept tabs on her and probably even brought her back to the island

Her name bears a striking resemblance to Dannielle's name.--Stan 13:27, 11 May 2007 (PDT)

Truthfully, i don't think that Annie is Danielle. I think that Annie has died giving birth to a baby. This would explain why Ben is so persistent about Juliet solving the infertility problem, and it would also explain the statement made by the island shrink to Juliet, where she says: "you look just like her". I think that this baby Annie gave birth to is Charlotte Lewis, because Charlotte has said she was born on the island.--Laurenh141 00:37, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Annie couldn't have had a daughter Charlotte Lewis according to your theory because Juliet said none of the mothers made it to their third trimester (D.O.C). If she died she wouldn't have had a baby.
Ben arrived on the island in 1973. "The Incident" happens in 1977. Daniel Faraday speaks to Charlotte shortly before the Incident happens, who is a little girl at the time. Annie and Charlotte could therefore be assumed to be about the same age. Annie could not possibly be Charlotte's mother. KateSix 23:51, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure that Annie was part of the evacuation in 1977, and just moved on with her life. Either that or she died to try and have Ben's child, and that's why he's so determined to solve the fertility problems.--Gibbeynator 02:27, May 10, 2010 (UTC)

Just before Ben goes off to kill his father during the purge, he pauses and puts Annie's doll in his bag. Ben is determined to solve the fertility problem which was caused by Dharma's incident. If Annie also became pregnant and died as a result, her death could be the motivation for Ben seeking revenge by purging those responsible for the incident and ultimately her death.--Paleored 01:30, December 25, 2010 (UTC)

Annie lives

In this Emerson interview [[1]] he answers the questions if we will see her again and if she will be grown up by then both with "Yes." - Roger 18:21, 14 June 2007 (PDT)

Considering all of the conflicting background stories she supplies, as well as the claims Ben Linus makes to Alex's parentage, is it possible that Annie is actually Danielle Rousseau? I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone mention this yet. --Squashua 11:43, 29 February 2008 (PST)

I saw a lot of talk about that on the Lost-tv forums. They get deep. As for Danielle being Annie, I don't know. It conflicts with her landing on the island in '88. The-room 11:47, 29 February 2008 (PST)
Danielle (or the writers) has been very inconsistent with her background story. It is possible she was not part of any expedition. Then-again, why would she change the numbers broadcast to a French warning? I guess time will tell. --Squashua 12:05, 29 February 2008 (PST)
Maybe we will seen her grown up, but only as some sort of ghost? Leo Johannes 04:02, 1 July 2008 (PDT)
The interview is not considered cannon, and besides, perhaps that it what Michael Emerson assumes. Pierre Chang has stated that he and all of his partners have died in a violent purge, I believe that the interview cannot be taken as cannon and only for entertainment and speculation purposes. I believe we should change her status to deceased.--Jinx 16:16, 29 July 2008 (PDT)


shouldn't his dolls be put under items in the thing at the bottom?--Tylerr395 15:31, 14 May 2007 (PDT)


Annie takes her name from Anastasia, the Russian Romonov princess. Many rumors were attributed to her in that she was the only one to escape her family's murder. Young Anastasia grew into a vivacious and energetic child, described as short and inclined to be chubby, with blue eyes and reddish-blonde hair. One meaning of her name is "the breaker of chains" or "the prison opener". Another meaning of the name is "of the resurrection."--Sudipal 11:36, 23 November 2008 (PST)
