Then a man comes over. It's Dr. Brooks from the Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute, but in the flash sideways, Dr. Brooks and Hurley don't know each other either. Hurley has never been committed to Santa Rosa. Dr. Brooks asks Elizabeth if she's bothering this man. Libby says no, Hurley is an old friend. Dr. Brooks apologizes for the intrusion and escorts Libby out. Before she goes, Libby tells Hurley she meant everything she said.

Locke is surprised but then confused. Why did Widmore bring Desmond back to the island?
