We all know Hurley talks to dead people, so it’s no surprise that next week’s Hurley-centric Lost will feature the return of several dead cast members.  Who’s coming back, and how will they fit into the puzzle?

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains the guest cast list from next week’s episode.

Harold Perrineau as Michael

The preview for next week already showed Michael screaming at Hurley on the Island, so we know we’ll at least see him as a guest.  But will Michael also make an appearance in the altverse?

Cynthia Watros as Libby

Libby is Hurley’s true love, the Claire to his Charlie, the Penny to his Desmond.  As with Michael, the big mystery is whether she’ll be a ghost on the Island or in the altverse?

Bruce Davison as Dr. Brooks

This could be the biggest clue to Libby’s reappearance.  Dr. Brooks was in charge of Santa Rosa back in the season 2 episode “Dave.”  That episode ended with Libby at the mental institution, which could suggest that we may get answers about why Libby was in Santa Rosa.

Francois Chau as Pierre Chang

Will Miles’ dad be a ghost talking to Hurley on the Island with a message for his son, or will he be running the museum in the altverse, working with Charlotte, as Miles mentioned in “Recon”?

Kenton Duty as Teenage Boy

You might remember Duty from “The Substitute” as the mysterious boy in the jungle who was chased by Flocke.  His return means we might get answers about who he really is.

Lillian Hurst as Carmen Reye and Archie Ahuna as Tito

Unsurprisingly, Hurley’s mom will appear in his altverse.  The surprise is the return of Tito, Hurley’s grandfather, who died shortly after Hurley won the lotto in the original timeline.

Samm Levine as Clerk and Jesse Smith as Waiter

Levine is probably best known as Neal on Freaks and Geeks.  Jesse Smith played one of the random background characters on the Island, a survivor of Oceanic 815.

Lost airs Tuesday at 9pm on ABC.
