Perhaps one of the most exciting characters
ever to appear in Springfield, Annie
didn't seem to be a troublemaker when she first arrived in
She came into town in 1994 working as a Cedars Hospital nurse. Soon
after arriving, she and Josh developed a relationship. However,
unbeknownst to everyone else in town, she was a bigamist. Back in
Chicago, she and Rick Bauer had married and due to some unforeseen
circumstances were never fully divorced. We learned that her marriage
fell apart with him due to her alcoholism. Annie still ended up
marrying Josh, but hours after their marriage, his long lost ex-wife
Reva returned to town. Although Annie tried to do the right thing and gave
him the option of leaving her, he refused. Slowly, their marriage began
to deteriorate. Josh began to feel guilty about not being with Reva, and
eventually Annie became addicted to prescription pills. She got some
help, which is when Alan Spaulding entered the scene.
Alan helped her get some professional help in regard to her addiction.
Later, he helped her get pregnant with Josh's baby in an attempt to trap
him in their marriage. After suffering a miscarriage, she deliberately
made it look like it was Reva's fault. She staged a fight and made it
look like Reva pushed her down a flight of stairs. Bound and determined
to get Reva out of her life, she even took her to court. Lucky for Reva,
she wasn't found guilty.
Eventually, Annie and Alan began living together, and he found out many
things about her past. On their wedding day, another ex-husband of Annieís
interrupted the ceremony to announce that they had never gotten divorced.
Alan was angry, so she was arrested. She escaped from jail, kidnapped
Reva, and hijacked a plane. After tying Reva up, she left her in a
plane with no pilot, while she jumped out. Everyone assumed she was
After many months, a police office from Michigan moved to
Springfield named Teri DeMarco. She helped Frank work on the Nursery
Rhyme Stalker case. However, Teri is secretly Annie. Annie
met the real Teri while vacationing. After an accident, Teri was left in a coma,
and Annie got a plastic surgeon to recreate Teriís face on her own. The
only person who figured this out was Dinah, and she kept Annie's secret.
Meanwhile, Teri began slowly drugging Josh so that he would fall in love
with Revaís sister, Cassie. She also seduced Alan, who recognized her.
When Reva began investigating Teri because of all the
free time she was spending with Josh, she discovered Annie's secret. She was put in jail, escaped, and
then ran away to parts unknown.
Four years passed before Annie was heard from again. In 2003,
when Reva was being stalked, Annie was a suspect. It was then revealed
that she was living in a mental institution, and all of her expenses
were being paid for by Alan.
Revaís visit was a chilly one. Annie was living in a replica of
the Lewis House, thinking she was still married to Josh. That was the
last time viewers saw Annie.
