Watros was a romantic interest to Hurley and was very mysterious showing up in flashbacks. In the episode “Two for the Road”, Libby was shot dead by Michael Dawson. Libby briefly reappeared in the 2008 episode “Meet Kevin Johnson”. Watros returned in 2010 in the episode “Everybody Loves Hugo” in the final season of Lost, in which she played a large part in the story. In addition, Watros appeared in the season finale, albeit without speaking lines.

After her departure from Lost in 2006, she filmed a pilot for a show titled My Ex-Life for CBS. Watros was slated to play the ex-wife of a character played by Tom Cavanagh. However, the pilot was not chosen by CBS. She was also the lead in the 2007 CBS television pilot for The Rich Inner Life of Penelope Cloud. It was a comedy about a former literary genius who, after an awakening, decides to pursue optimism instead of cynicism.

She filmed a pilot for Valley Girls, a spin-off of the CW series Gossip Girl set in the 1980s in 2009. In the film, she played CeCe Rhodes, the socialite ex-wife of Rick Rhodes, and mother of the series’ protagonists. In the May 2009 episode of the USA series In Plain Sight, “A Stand-Up Triple”, Watros guest-starred as a mother of three children in the witness protection program. She joined the cast of the TV medical drama House for seven episodes as Samantha Carr, one of Dr. James Wilson’s ex-wives beginning in April 2010.

She then appeared in the 2012 indie film, Electrick Children. Watros guest-starred in episode 8.22 of Grey’s Anatomy in May 2012. She also guest-starred in episode 4.17 of Warehouse 13 in June 2013.

On December 6, 2013, she starred as Avery Jenning’s self-obsessed aunt in Dog with a Blog.

She joined the cast of the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless in 2013 but left the show in early 2014 with her character being recast.
