Olivia has her future set. Or does she? I see the character as a central "chess piece" in the "game" of flashforward. Although she is committed to Mark, she has the risk (seen in her flashforward) of being "captured" by Lloyd Simcoe, who seems to have his own agenda separate from Simon. She has her own will and professional stamina, but will it hold up against the extreme pressure from both work and home? Olivia looks to be strategically placed in the center of the series mythology and her choices will carry great weight throughout the season. Trauma doesn't even begin to describe her path. Sonya is a great casting choice and it will be interesting to watch how her character develops and what choices she will make.
She is trying tooooo hard to make sure her flash forward doesn't come true, that she doesn't take any of the flash forward visions into consideration. Luckily, Bryce was there to help...

As we started to see last week, Olivia's flashforward slightly depends on Mark's choices. She told him before that if he starts drinking again then their marriage will be over. Now we have seen her trying to get him to move away from L.A to change their futures completely but it looks like he has no interest in this.
There aren't the only factors though, Olivia gets to decide whether or not she has anything to do with Lloyd ever again and risk that she might fall in love with him. She is already attached to Dylan. :S I don't want her to be with Lloyd though :(
