That would have been a scary twist but according to this:
"One of the Others, a sheriff named Isabella, reads (the tattoos) another way: 'He walks amongst us, but he is not one of us.' 'That's not what they mean,' Jack says with a snarl. Isabella is played by Diana Scarwid, whose most memorable role to date was as the abused adoptee telling the tale of Mommy Dearest."
"And the woman in the jewelry store that gives (Desmond) the lowdown on the fabric of fate is Irish actress Fionnula Flanagan, the matriarch in Showtime’s Brotherhood."
