I think so. Her name is apparently Ms. Hawkings and she is also the old lady whom Desmond tries to buy Penny's ring from (season 3 I think). Had to look it up, though. She tells him he can't and that his destiny is to land on the island. A good source for me is Entertainment Weekly's Jeff Jensen articles. He does a good job of summarizies and theorizing if anyone is interested. Do you all think the baby in the beginning is Miles? Who do you think is behind the paternity test? Ben or Sun? Interesting. I'll have to look up his articles. I think Sun and Penny's dad are behind the paternity test.
