Season 8[]

When Mike Delfino's life flashes before his eyes, Ana is seen in archive footage. ("You Take for Granted")


  • Ana Solis is the only main character whose final appearance (in fact, final two appearances) consists of archive footage alone.
  • Ana is one of only six main characters (along with Angie, Ben, Chuck, Dave and Renee) who only appeared in the post-time jump era of the series.
  • Originally, Ana was meant to play a much bigger part in season 6, which could have explained Walsh's "starring" billing: Ana was meant to drive Gabrielle and Carlos apart, and Gaby would ultimately be pushed back to become again romantically involved with John Rowland. However, this plan was scrapped, and after the character moved to New York City in episode 6.17, series creator Marc Cherry promised Walsh she'd be back for the final episodes of the season with a big story. However, this didn't come to pass and Walsh never returned to the series again.
