In the initial pilot for the series, Anna moves back to Hollywood with her family after living in Australia for two years. Upon returning she realizes that nothing has really changed and attempts to reunite with her friend Joey who she has feelings for. During the time in Australia however, Joey had short relationship with a girl named Lulu. Later in the series Lulu returns revealing that she had a son.
