Penny for your thoughts?

Here's a quick one for the Losties. In the recent Desmond episode, the photo with Penny was a key point in the episode. On the left here is the picyure that Desmond showed when we first saw him in series 2; on the right is the photo from the recent episode.

Strange. It can't be an accident, surely?

Woah! Good eye! (admittedly, it took me at least a minute, if not more, to realize the difference between the pictures...and I say that I'm detail-oriented...I guess just different kinds of details)

Penny almost even looks like a different woman, but maybe it's just the look on her face.

I wonder if maybe it is a mistake...maybe they're falling down on their game?

My eyes were nowhere near good enough to spot that one. I can't remember where I read it, but I did download the pictures t look at. Apparently it's a different actress. It must be on purpose: with a change of actress that was not supposed to be noticed, they would have picked a very close match and made sure to dress her exactly the same. Parallel universe theory, anyone?

I LOVE parallel universe theories!!!!!!!! You don't know how excited I will be if that is true.

According to Lostpedia, it seems to be a continuity error, simple as that. However I am sure it won't stop people theorising about it.

I wasn't thinking that the actresses were important at all. The clothes are different. As I said, if you change the actress you would ensure that she was wearing a white top, not a black one, wouldn't you? The article even comments on this:

"The producers suggest that the origin of the photograph might be different in Desmond's two timelines. They further suggest this might explain the disparity in the apparent number of copies of the photograph that should exist".

Plus, black and white are running themes on Lost. I think it is meaningful.
