Charlie's guitar

In series one he was writing a new album, for when he gets back to civilisation. What happened to his guitar since then?

--Rayne 08:44, 30 April 2006 (PDT)

It was in last weeks episode. (Isolation815 08:44, 19 April 2007 (PDT))

Charlie's "Imminent" Demise

In "Flashes Before Your Eyes", which aired on 14 February 2007, we have learned from Desmond that Charlie is gonna die, probably very soon. Is this for real? Apparently Desmond has repeatedly managed to save Charlie's life, but is convinced that sooner or later he won't be able to pull it off. It's very disturbing to think that Charlie's death is going to happen any time now... Any theories about this? ~~Saukkomies 01:08 18 February 2007 (EST)

I believe that Charlie was always meant to die, and here is my back-up, at least all that I can think of off the top of my head:

1. In the Pilot episode, he is standing very close to the turbine that later kills Gary Troup/Turbine Man and explodes- he is lucky not to have been sucked in himself.

1a. Not too long after we see him by the turbine, he is nearly struck (he would presumably be hurt if not killed) by a falling piece of plane- the one that is on fire. It narrowly misses him, and he looks around in shock before walking away.

2. He gets hanged, of course, by Ethan Rom, and is only narrowly saved by Jack's obsessive inability to 'let things go'.

3. He almost gets crushed in the tunnel while trying to dig Jack out.

4. He almost gets blown to smithereens when the hatch explodes.

5. Back to the pilot (now that I think of it), he is with Kate and Jack when they are being chased by the monster.

6. He is ALSO in the presence of the monster when it comes face-to-face with Mr. Eko, even though it leaves (it may not, however, have seen Charlie).

7. Of course, as Desmond attempts to prevent, he was also meant to get struck by lightning and drowned trying to save Claire (these are the obvious ones though and may not count).

SO. Can anyone else think of any other similar instances in which his life was truly at stake? I'm sure there are more I just can't think of right now. ~~ohwhatalife_16 03:33 19 February 2007 (EST)


i'm sorry, i think only the desmond ones count, for this reason:

everybody is stuck in time, and everybody can only do what they are destined to do. They cannot change this because they do not know what they are destined to do. However, desmond has seen it, therefore he can change the future (although not fate itself). Now, although Charlie has always been destined to die, the near misses previous to the lightening cannot count, because another character was destined to save him. In the lightnening strike, nobody was destined to save him, but because desmond did, the future changed, although charlie is still destined to die. Yeah? So, becuase other people were destined to save him, at that point in time he was never actually destined to die.

  • it's definitely interesting that Charlie has had so many near death experiences, especially the hanging. But plenty of other losties have been in danger, and we don't know whether fate wants him dead and keep trying to for some unknown ultimate purpose, or whether his original death was just an accident, and fate is just trying to kill him to keep things the way they were. I don't think we have enough info to guess yet.

I agree, we need more info before we can make a decision. Any speculation as to when his demise will occur? I would guess end of season.--CerRbErUs. 14:41, 25 March 2007 (PDT)

I don't believe that Charlie will die because of a small thing I believe is an Easter egg about his fate. If you listen to the song Charlie Plays in Desmond's flashback/lucid dream its WONDERWALL by OASIS. The lyrics go:

And all the roads we have to walk along are winding And all the lights that lead us there are blinding There are many things that I would Like to say to you I don't know how

Because maybe You're gonna be the one who saves me ? And after all You're my wonderwall

Since they were in Desmond's flashback it can be assumed that though Charlie's path is "winding" down Desmond will be able to save him from eminent death. - User:DavisSmailington

Charlie

Ok now this bit is something of a leap i know but... Charlie made sure that Ethan reveals nothing to the survivors by pumping 6 rounds into him. He knows that Sayid is a trained torturer and skilled in information extraction. We know that Ethan comes to him in the forest and talks to him but did we see the whole picture.

If it wasn't for the fact the Charlie was left for dead, Claire's lack of recollection, you could almost think he was involved in the kidnap and my even have helped created the 2 trails that split the search party making Ethans job easier.

What if he was going along with an offer he was made only to be double crossed and hung.

I just find something odd about Charlie. He is a very prominant character and features on DVD covers with Jack and Kate where i would have thought that Locke or Sawyer were more senior roles. From the creator interviews i think Sawyer was something of a surprise to them that he was such a popular character.

--user:MRNasher

I think we can probably take the Charlie/Ethan relationship at face value. --user:Joezoo


How come Claire is so quick to poo-poo Charlie's sleepwalking and "visions?" She had very similar experiences, and she herself was considered by her fellow survivors to be a little paranoid for a time. I'd expect her to be more understanding. --user:skidoo

The Moth

Maybe the moth emerging from its chrysalis has a wider meaning than was obvious.

When Charlie is revived he was reborn. His character is much darker, bitter and violent than before. He has been through a trauma but has he come back as a different man.--user:MRNasher

I'm finding it hard to like Charlie now. I was in tears when he was hanging dead. He was such a cool character, considereate, caring with a good humour about him. One of my favourite scenes with Charlie was when he was tyring not to read the diary.

But his hoarding of heroin statures and his envy of Locke makes him hard to like.

The idea of Charlie been darker since his revival is good, but I personally feel this steps from his hatred and jealousy of Locke and his rejection from Claire.

--Rayne 08:44, 30 April 2006 (PDT)

Career Choices

Let's not forget Charlie's chance at being on The Office when Lucy's father purchased a Paper Company in Slough.

FATE - LATE

I am confused a bit. Wasnt paying attention to this in the show enough. Now here i read it was first LATE then FATE and a few days later i read it was first FATE then LATE, then I read that one of it was only in a dream sequence. - is someone really sure about this and can support or deny what is written in this article now? --aurora glacialis 08:19, 17 March 2006 (PST)

The last edit is probably mine, it had just LATE on it and I added the FATE. I just watched the pilot episode again few days ago (to get the candybar cap), and in it he writes FATE, of this I am sure. I have a faint recollection that after few days on the island, he changes it to LATE (as there's no rescue party). Not sure about the dream/hallucination bit either. --skks 09:14, 17 March 2006 (PST)


Morse Code

During the flashbacks on the plane, we see Charlie agitantly tapping the arm of his seat with his ring, apparently from withdrawl symptons. Is it possible he is tapping morse code? and if so what is it saying?. --Morrison 23.54 28 March 2006 (GMT)

Just a thought: When the plane crashed Charlie went to the toilet in the front section where he tried to flush his stash. Then the turbulence started and Charlie ran out of the toilet and sat down in a the next best seat. Shouldnt Charlie then have been found in the front section of the plane in the jungle with the pilot? But he was on the beach. Sned me your responses please. (User:lasource81


Yes, that's a point, he didn't return to his seat, I can't recall how far back he went, but it did look like he sat right in the front of first class. That's a bit mysterious, but then again, so is Jack's appearance in the woods. Perhaps there is a gap between the plane breaking up completely and the survivors waking up - it's possible that a selected group were saved and brought down to the island safely (apart from those with injuries, but perhaps survivors like the Marshall were given just enough time to reveal secrets).

As for Charlie's tapping, I thought it looked like a genuine agitation to me. Who could he be tapping to anyway?

--Rayne 08:44, 30 April 2006 (PDT)

Charlie in the toilet

Just before the crash, we know that charlie in the toilet and as a result he is in the front section during the crash. but in pilot 1 we see him on the beach just after the crash. how could it be?

Very confusing. Especially considering Boone and Shannon were right in front of the toilets. --Princess Dharma (banned) 07:38, 17 February 2007 (PST)

  • Not exactly. You can see charlie walking past them on his way to the toilets, then he keeps walking, goes through the curtains separating first section to the 2nd one (where Boone and Shannon were seated). After charlie gets out of the toilets and gets almost smashed by the food cart, you can see him making his way to the 2nd row of seats and attaches his seat belt. What's really odd there is , from what you can see in the front part of the wreckage, there is at least 3 rows of seats in there... So either some footage is missing (with charlie going further back in the plane after getting out of the toilets), or its a some kind of mistake by the producers but from what you can see on the 2nd part of the pilot episode he was indeed sitting in the front section of the plane when it crashed. --fabC

"Tweaking"

What exactly does it mean that he was "tweaking on seat 29C""? --Ramirez Selvarn 11:36, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

"Tweaking" is used to describe frantic and compulsive behaviour often associated with methamphetamine abuse. --Doctag 05:08, 27 May 2006 (PDT)

Speculation

  • Charlie actually died when hanged by Ethan and was resurrected by the Island.
  • Charlie wasn´t really hanged by Ethan, but hanged himself. He didn´t have his hands tied, as it's expected when someone is hanged. It doesn´t prove that Charlie hanged himself, but it does make a suicide possible. In this case, the Others could be telling the truth when they say that they are the good ones.--Marretta 17:55, 8 April 2007 (PDT)
  • The conversation at the end of One of Them was Sayid trying to recruit Charlie for something, maybe his own army.
  • May have read Hurley's message for the bottle taken on the Raft, as Sawyer does later.
  • Is lying, or witholding information from Claire about what happened at the hatch after the button wasnt pushed.
  • Acted very strange after he returned from the Hatch, maybe got infected by the sickness, or something else happened to him seeing he was in the location of the new incident.
  • is suffereing from amnesia and has no recolection of what happened after the button wasnt pushed, possibly was blown out and away from the hatch whilst escaping. (note that he does describe some of what happens to Claire, so it's not clear that this holds any water).
  • Since first taking the injection from the vaccine kit, Charlie seems to be acting stranger. These actions include his short temper at Eko, and his conversation with Locke about the return of Desmond; Charlie almost seems to purposely be stirring up trouble. These actions could possibly be related to the sickness.
  • May have been "bought out" by the others to give Claire the vaccine for the baby. We never saw him procure the vaccine kit from the supply drop. He was easily "bought" by Sawyer for his dirty work earlier.

He was hiding nothing about the hatch implosion, he asked Claire "You want to now about de flying fork or about the fire-ball following me?" and Claire took it as a joke.--DL 13:49, 9 August 2007 (PDT)

Removed from the article

This is not a theory:

  • Interesting to note that Charlie is rarely, if ever, seen playing bass. He often plays guitar on the island, and plays piano in his flashback in Fire + Water.
    • He is seen playing bass in a concert in a flashback.

WTF?

What kind of middle name is Hieronymus? I googled it and it came up with a Dutch painter, and a band from Oxford, which was formed in 2000 (which FBYE's flashbacks probably happen before). so do you think it's his real middle name or not? --Blueeagleislander 00:04, 15 February 2007 (PST)

  • The name Hieronymus was a part of Desmond's flashback/dream, and should not be used until it is confirmed officially that it is his real middle name.
  • Above, please sign your talk pages. Also, it does count as significant; all FB elements are "official", even if questionable as far as what "really" happened... we still list them because it is an observation/perception of Desmond's. I think the Dutch painter is the most important reference personally, since he painted a lot of religious symbology with demons and angels (also the name of one of the Lost songs). --PandoraX 14:08, 16 February 2007 (PST)
  • Maybe not used as his official name, but certainly mentioned. Also it's possible it's just part of his "stage name".--Jackdavinci

Hurley

On the page it says he is in Hurley's flashbacks (at the categories on the bottom), but he isn't. Should it be removed?--Phil 14:00, 16 February 2007 (PST)

Yeah, good eye. I changed it to Desmond's. I think the Hurley's FB cat was added because he is shown briefly in a scene where Hurley tries to get on the elevator at Sydney hotel, morning of the flight. But this isn't really counted as that significant in the character connections list, because many of them stayed at the same hotel and saw each other at the airport.--PandoraX 14:06, 16 February 2007 (PST)
Maybe we could have a new category for flashback characters that appear in either minor flashbacks like Otherville or on the same day as the plane flight (Hurley's hotel, the airport, the plane itself) --Jackdavinci

That would WAY over complicate things. Princess Dharma (banned) 07:36, 17 February 2007 (PST)

It says that Charlie is in Hurely's flashblack because when Hurley is looking at CD's he looks at the Driveshaft album and talks about how bad it is.

Middle Name

Hey, I was just wondering whether the middle name should really be percieved as canon, as we still don't know for sure whether the Desmond flashback/dream sequence is completely true yet. It could be possible that what we are seeing in Desmonds dream sequence is not totally true on what happened in his past. For example, the microwave in the sequence made the hatch beep, which probably isn't truly part of his past. I really don't think that we should have that middle name. Please discuss. --lewisg 11:28, 19 February 2007 (PST)

I believe the policy is to take flashback information at face value until it's directly contradicted either by another episode or by the producers. Even in cases where there is something unusual about the flashback such as Claire's drugged rememberance of her time in The Staff and Libby's appearance in Hurley's flashback. See PandoraX's comments in one of the other sections on this page. --Jackdavinci 11:37, 19 February 2007 (PST)

Vegetarian?

In the trivia section, it states he's a vegetarian, but hasn't he been seen eating boar and fish, and his dad was a butcher! Unless we have a serious daddy issue to be revealed, would a butcher really let their son be a vegetarian? --Blueeagleislander 21:57, 1 March 2007 (PST)

parents don't let their children become vegetarian. they just are vegetarian, despite what friends and family say. also, i don't think we ever saw him eat meat. not sure at all. - platypus april 27 2007

Maybe he became a vegetarian because his dad was a butcher.Spacebrat 00:05, 1 April 2007 (PDT)

He is not a vegetarian, he ate the boar Sawyer helped Desmond catch in Left Behind, i removed the sentence from the trivia section.-Mr.Leaf 17:23, 28 April 2007 (PDT)
In the book "Signs of Life" he says he is vegetarian, and if i'm not mistaken, the spin-off novels are considered as canon.--Baker1000 16:26, 20 May 2007 (PDT)

An argument often used by vegetarians is that they don't eat meat because they don't need it in their diet and their choice is an objection to the way animals are farmed. However if they where stranded on a desert island or something and needed to eat meat to survive, they would have less of a problem with that. I suggest that Charlie was a vegetarian, but given his situation he had to reconsider given the lack of tofu bushes.--TechNic|talk|conts 16:38, 20 May 2007 (PDT)

The page’s design

If you will look at the other characters’ pages, you will see there is one format that applies for all of them. Well, almost most of them. The user Quint decided to bring to Charlie and Boone’s page his own design – an initiative which is very welcome, especially here in Lostpedia. The thing is that it doesn’t match to the other pages. I tried to explain, but Quint decided to stay with his opinion. Since then, I rewrote the page and brought up a new design, but Quint reverted half of it back. Now, don’t get me wrong. I think that Quint’s contributions are very welcome and contribute to Lostpedia, but I also wanted to show my opinion. So, I would like you to decide which one of the following designs are better for Charlie’s page. We could also combine the two designs, and then everybody will be happy. :)

1) The page as it looks right now.
2) My design

  • Yeesh. You make it sound like I'm some vagrent or something. All I did was replaced all of the uninteresting pictures with more visually appealing ones. Its for the greater good. ~quint
I don't see the difference except there are too many images in the article.  Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  04:35, 6 March 2007 (PST)
Nope, you're defiantly not a vagrant. :) The thing is, that you replaced the pictures I uploaded with pictures that have nothing to do with the content. For example, Charlie's picture with Jack and Hurley. It's in front of the paragraph about "The Moth", and it isn't an important "event" in Charlie's history. I replaced it with an image that shows Charlie's decision to get rid of the drugs, but you still believe that the water crisis is more important. Also, regarding Desmond and Charlie's picture in the flashbacks section - you insist to use the long image, but it doesn't look good. All I did was replacing it with a picture with the same concept, which is shorter. Yet, you find the long one better. I try to compromise, but.. It doesn't seem like it's working. I know the content is what important and not the design, that's why I want to compromise instead of making it a big deal. Yours,  ODK Talk   Sandbox 09:33, 6 March 2007 (PST)

Too many pictures and they do nothing to further illustrate the article. Princess Dharma (banned)

  • See, I work in advertising, and the pictures I chose and placed are more interesting and better to look at than the other ones, and they make the page look fuller and more interesting. I mean, you want something that's fun to read, and that's what I'm making it. ~Quint

I must admit Quin's design is much better. Princess Dharma (banned)

Season 3 Flashback episode?

Does anyone know of a Charlie-centric Flashback episode for Season 3? Some characters like Jack and Locke have already been granted two of their own centric episodes, but old Charlie has yet to be in the spotlight? Any head's up? or might it be a season-ending cliffhanger in which Desmond's premonitions come true and we must wait till next season to resolve? --Frenkmelk 10:35, 1 April 2007 (PDT)

Is there a point of having a flashback navigation if it doesn't appear on all of the page which it links to? --Jackdavinci 13:50, 4 April 2007 (PDT)

Post-Island Plans

i could be wrong, but it seems that charlie is the only character with concrete plans for what he wants to do when he gets off the island. charlie insists that when he gets back to society, he wants to get driveshaft back together and record a new album. if charlie dies, this would imply that maybe the losties will never return to society? - platypus april 27 2007

updated since the season 3 finale, i am completely lost. i don't think anybody buys into the death sequence. did the writers seriously write a bad script full of holes or are they trying to toy with us? - platypus may 24 2007

Charlies fate to die!

Charlie stands from his seat up, and runs to the toilet. Next Moment - Plan Crashes. He is save. Would he live when he sat on his seat? If not then there begins his fate to die.--Ar-ras 03:57, 4 May 2007 (PDT)

Hieroglyphs predict Charlie's death?

Just a thought... One interpretation of the hieroglyphs Locke saw in the hatch is "She/Rises to the sky/in Flames//He/Dies." The first part, "She/Rises to the sky/in Flames/" is the female part of the sentence (it's on a red background) and the second part "He/Dies" is on black. This sounds similar to Desmond's prediction about Claire and Aaron getting into a helicopter and Charlie dying in The Looking Glass.

Personally I don't think he's going to die anyway, but I couldn't resist the similarities here... --Cleast 09:09, 17 May 2007 (PDT)

If the theory about him being blown up by a grenade is true, then this would prefectly match the situation. -- ||[ K i t s u n e ]||

Add A Few More Charlie Pictures

I feel I few pics should be added from Greatest Hits as it's very possible Charlie may die in the finale, it will look quite odd seeing two different pictures of Charlie dying right next to each other. A few pictures in between should be added.

Did Charlie Have to Die?

Might be the wrong place to mention this, but Charlie could have exited the room and THEN closed the door. He could have run out the room with lots of time for Desmond and him to get the scuba suits on before the statio flooded. He could have swam to the surface (he was closer to the surface then than the at the moon pool). Is he even dead? He swam of camera.

I think that Charlie shut himself in there to keep Desmond from going into that chamber to talk to Penny, risking Desmond's life in the process. Perhaps he also knew that his death was the only way to fulfill Desmond's prophecy of Claire and Aaron getting off the island? AmarilloLostFan 04:50, 24 May 2007 (PDT)
I am convinced that Charlie might not be dead in a traditional sense of the word (anybody remember that comment?). My reasoning comes from three points. First, death an resurrection are reoccurring themes (Nikki, Palo, Christian, Mikhail). Second, Charlie could have easily saved himself rather than needlessly sacrificing himself. Third, Charlie has to get the band back together! platypus may 24 2007 17:39PT
I COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU! Charlie isn't dead, there's no way, I'm tired of the producers taking away characters that I like, Ana-Lucia, etc. Swimmerdude157
First, didn't Ana and Libby kill themselves off by getting a DUI in Hawaii and being unsure about being able to continue filming? Secondly although I hate the character of Charlie Pace, the death (if thats what it was) was pointless. The physics were totally off, as can be found in discussions for the episode, (I know some are calling this artistic license, but this show is under such scrutiny from the internet fan base, I can't believe they were that daft intentionally) in addition, there is no reason why Charlie or Desmond for that matter would assume Charlie would have to die for the flash to come true anyway. Think about it, Desmond had two flashes where Charlie simply died, he stopped them both, and nothing bad came of it. Then he has a flash of what he thinks is Penny coming to the Island and he wants to let Charlie die, but doesn't and the person in his flash still shows up. In this flash presumably, he sees Charlie die, and then he sees a helicopter. Now if Charlie were an intelligent person (which I doubt) he would say to himself, these flashes always show me die, but me not dying hasn't hurt anything. Also, this helicopter from Naomi's boat isn't what it seams and could be very bad; maybe I don't want this helicopter to come. --Suddud (Talk) 21:20, 29 May 2007 (PDT)

Death not confirmed

His death is not really confirmed. I think we ought to wait until season four before we decide whether he *really* died. What if there's a pocket of air in the flooded room, he takes a deep breath and swims out of the porthole. Who knows? We didn't really see him dead did we? --Jambalaya 13:31, 25 May 2007 (PDT)

He didn't swim out. He just drowned--Phil (talk) 13:38, 25 May 2007 (PDT)

Well, we did not see him actually drown (I think). If there's a pocket of air he can escape later through the porthole. I won't be convinced that he died until 1) The creators confirm it at some point like in an official podcast, or 2) He isn't playing any part in season 4. --Jambalaya 13:46, 25 May 2007 (PDT)
After reading the TV Guide article about Charlie, I have to concede that he *really* died in the finale. I won't be making any more fuss about it :-) --Jambalaya 13:53, 25 May 2007 (PDT)
I have not yet re-watched the episode, and I did not even hear about the TV Guide article (you can believe I'm looking for it online after I finish typing this!), but I agree, we have not yet seen "Charlie's Dead Body" and subsequent funeral, all we've seen is his body go limp after the room flooded. Desmond would have plenty of time to swim out through the moon pool and around to the blown-out window, drag Charlie back around, and resuscitate him. And what about Mikhail? With the way that loyalties were being tested in the last few minutes in the Looking Glass, and Ben's admission to Mikhail that he had been lying, could Mikhail have blown out the porthole INTENDING to drag Charlie out and force them into being allies? ALSO, there's very nearly a paradox at work here. What if Charlie HAD died during one of Desomond's earlier predictions, like an arrow to the throat or a bolt of lightning? Then he would not have been able to drown flicking the blinking yellow switch, and none of what Desmond later envisioned would have come to pass. I'm sure I'm reaching, I just don't want to let go of Charlie. He's one of my favorite characters, and he and Claire are my 2nd favorite couple, after Rose and Bernard (and right before Sun and Jin). And I do also have to agree that at this point it does sound like the producers are confirming that the character is dead. C'mon, people, let's pull a Bjo Trimble on the producers and start a fan movement to save Charlie!Sithboy 22:02, 2 June 2007 (PDT)

The pictures don't fit

Why is the room Charlie's in when he's giving his final message not flooded? And when did that picture of him with his head sticking out of the water happen? --Magnet 23:20, 30 May 2007 (PDT)

They're promotional images and not necessarily exactly the same as the events in the episode. DrGiggles 10:23, 31 May 2007 (PDT)

Charlie wasn't near Eko

In the section about "Charlie's near deaths," I removed where it said he was near Eko when the smoke monster killed him. Charlie wasn't even on that trek. Wstonefi 21:58, 9 June 2007 (PDT)

Didn't it say when Eko saw the smoke monster. If this is the case Charlie was there he was up in hte tree when Eko first saw the smoke monster. He and Charlie were going to the drug plane back in season 2. --kat 05:46, 23 June 2007 (PDT)
Ah, you're right, Charlie was there in Season 2. My bad. Wstonefi 07:57, 28 June 2007 (PDT)

Charlie Swims?

I am watching "White Rabbit" and in it Charlie said "I don't swim" to Jack while there is a woman drowning in the ocean. Wouldn't Jack remember that when Charlie voluntaries to swim to the "Looking Glass?" There an Alice in Wonderland connection for ya. --BenMo 19:31, 22 June 2007 (PDT)

Not dead

I don't think Charlie is dead. There has been evidence discussed that proves the room couldn't have completely filled up. Plus, what a terrible way to kill him. He didn't really need to die. He could have just ran out of the room and closed the door behind him. I think the writers are trying to pull one over on all of us and really shock in the season 4 premiere. Ok, maybe this is just wishful thinking. What do you think?


I think Charlie isn`t dead for one reason. The special for Season 3 ends with Charlie arriving the station and saying the words "I`m alive" twice. Then the special ends. This must be a hint. Also we don`t know if Desmond keeps the door shut. Status = deceased is wrong. The status is definitly unknown.


I hope he is not dead, and that would be the best twist if they brought charlie back. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Connerxcountry57 (talkcontribs) .

Charlie is SO dead. (Much to my dismay :( ) --Lewis-Talk-Contribs 12:52, 6 September 2007 (PDT)

Guys, he's dead, get over it. He officially left the show, is working on other things. Literally he had a going away party, he talked about it in numerous interviews how he will miss the show. He was seriously pissed at the writers and was incredibly sad he had to leave. They would not put him through just to make a great surprise. Besides the writers have officially confirmed he is dead. It is just wishful thinking.-Mr.Leaf 13:42, 6 September 2007 (PDT)

I don't think the point that Charlie could have ran out of the room and locked the door is valid. Yes he could have. But that would have changed Desmond's flashes and Claire and Aaron wouldn't get saved. In Charlie's mind, he HAD to drown in order for Claire and Aaron to get saved. It isn't a a matter of whether or not he could have survived, it's a matter of sacrifice. Even if the water level wouldn't have filled the room, I think Charlie would have made sure he drowned, in order to fulfill Desmond's predictions and secure rescue. --Gluphokquen Gunih 02:59, 31 December 2007 (PST)

In Season 4 Premiere

It's possible that he's not really dead, or maybe somehow able to still make an impact to the real world after he susposedly drowned. Should it be mentioned in the article that during the flash forward in the S4 premiere that a medical patient pointed out to Hurley that Charlie was there? This implies that someone else saw Charlie's susposed ghost. Even though he dissapeared afterward, why would a patient also see Charlie and tell Hurley about him. I guess it's possible that the patient was also a figment of Hurley's crazy mind. But why not just have Hurley see Charlie standing there all on his own. --Cactus 12:22, 03 Febuary 2008 (PDT)

The Patient is also a reoccuring character named Lewis

Hieronymus

Charlie's middle name Hieronymus is actually Greek and not Latin. It does means "sacred name". Jerome is the Latin version of the Greek Hieronymus. --Psyxonova 17:34, 10 August 2007 (PDT)

Charles?

Is his full first name Charles, or is it just Charlie?--Phil (talk) 17:31, 25 August 2007 (PDT)

  • I don't ever remember him being called Charles. I've always heard Charlie, even by his mother and father. But I could be wrong.  Liveweak  11:36, 31 December 2007 (PST)

Either they both come or they both go

I've began to hear rumors that they might brink Charlie back... to life. This would be kindda cool because I liked him as a character, however this might seem unfair. As we have seem Mikhail came back from the dead 3 times, therefor I would think that if they were to bring one of the two back it would be more likely to bring Mikhail back rather than Charlie. However this would be unfair to Dominic Monaghan's character becuse he's been on the show longer than Andrew Divoff. Therefor my argument points out that bothof their characters should either die together or live together. Markus the Carkess 17:54, 29 October 2007 (PDT)

I agree. But I think that they should at least make Mikhail survive, because to let him survive thrice after supposedly fatal events, then come back to life, it would be unfair to let him die. However, Charlie is my favorite character ever, and I think that he still will have a role to play. What I'm hoping for is that it's all a big scam by the producers and everyone, and Charlie actually is alive. Probably won't happen, but one can hope, right? After all, LOST is famous for the plot twist. --Sam McPherson 12:24, 23 January 2008 (PST)

Age

Where does the info about Charlie's age come from? Meteor

I was wondering that myself. --Sam McPherson 12:21, 23 January 2008 (PST)

Sign of the Cross

Just re-watched the Season 3 Finale - when Charlie dies, he makes the Sign of the Cross, but touches his right shoulder before his left. I don't know enough about the gesture to say much more, but modern Catholics touch their left shoulder first, then the right. Maybe it's a small thing, but then again, in a show like Lost... --The_Swan 19:54, 27 January 2008 (PST)

He actually touched his left shoulder first, but with his left hand. You're right, he didn't do it the way most Roman Catholics do it, but since he used the 'wrong' hand and did it backwards (touching his near shoulder first then reaching across) he wound up touching the 'correct' shoulder first. In fact, it looked like the mirror image of an Orthodox Christian or Easter Rite Catholic crossing himself.--Bonefishj0e 18:47, 19 February 2008 (PST)

Season 4 Promo

Tonight on TNT I saw a promo for Season 4, at the end of which were numerous flashes, including the Hydra logo, a 6, and a cow. However, also included was a shot of a clean-shaven, short-haired Charlie. All of the things I have read so far have not included Charlie or Dom - though I have not read any specific Season 4 spoilers. Is there any information that Charlie is included in season 4? -- WanderingMathematician  talk  contribs  email  19:13, 28 January 2008 (PST)

I've always been a strong believer that Charlie survived in the Looking Glass, dispite all the criticism I have recieved for my beliefs. However, after seeing sereval different previews for Season 4, I have seen Charlie multiple times. Besides the obvious one where you see his face, there are a few that don't show his face. For example, the man holding the Hydra logo is Charlie. I figured this out because you see his watch, and I can tell that watch is Charlie's. Also, I cannot prove this, but I think the guy Hurley is talking to on the beach is Charlie. I have not seen any spoilers, nor do I want to. Looks like we will have to wait a few days to see if I have been right for all these months. -- #1LostFan  talk  contribs  Lost Wiki  19:24, 28 January 2008 (PST)
I agree. I just saw the commercial again and was going to say that in the shot with Charlie, he appears to be taking off a pair of sunglasses and is talking to Hurley. I'll have to watch again to see if he is indeed the one holding the Hydra stick. I've always held out hope that Charlie was alive, but there's just been so much darn evidence to the contrary. But then, I wouldn't put it past Damon and co. to pull a mindf*ck like that on us. On an unrelated note, WTF was up with the cow/bull in that commercial? Do you think it was the cow from the Flame? -- WanderingMathematician  talk  contribs  email  19:32, 28 January 2008 (PST)

Basically suicide...or murder

Charlie basically offed himself based on Desmond's so-called vision that he had to die "this time" to save Claire and the baby. There was no reason for him to die at that time, think about it: a) When did Naomi or anyone else mention the boat was Penny's anyway? b) Why did he close the hatch? Hello? The both could have just left the way they came for crying out loud, flooded or not. b) Look at that window behind him after the cabin is full of water. Charlie would have easily fit through it and could have swam to the surface rather than waste time writing a useless message he could have just relayed with his VOICE. Desmond was the cause of Charlie's death and considering we - the audience - never saw this vision of his, who knows what it really entailed or what his motivation REALLY was.

Charlie in the middle section

I just removed that ANNOYING "unanswered question" about Charlie being with the middle section survivors. Seriously. Check "Pilot, Part 2". Just before the rolloing cart hits Charlie, you can see the seats in First Class. They're very comfortable, with tan leather coating and armrests. When Charlie sits down, his seat has the same seat cover as the ones Boone and Shannon are sitting on, so he was probably sitting close to the breaking point between the middle and front section of the plane, but not in First Class.--Nevermore 09:16, 24 March 2008 (PDT)

He Died for a REASON

On season 4 Charlie confirmed that he was dead. Lets ALL remember that Daniel and Charlotte came to the island to battle with Ben.If Charlie wouldn't have died then the gas would have killed EVERYONE, even if Charlie got out of the room to protect Desmond, Charlie would have eventually died. I believe that Desmond had a different vision that what he told Charlie because Claire and Aaron would have already been on the helicopter, because Desmond's visions come rapidly. I think Desmond's vision was Charlie turning off the jamming equipment and then Desmond talking to Penny and then Charlie dieing. I believe that the only reason Desmond told Charlie that Claire and Aaron would get off the island is so Desmond could talk to Penny, which is very selfish.--Hoti3100 04:26, 1 April 2008 (PDT)

Ya the article says that he closed the door to save Desmond, but didn't he actually close the door because he realized that Desmond's vision was real and that he had to die in order to save Claire and Aaron? --23 22:39, 22 April 2008 (PDT)

'You know what you have to do'

'You know what you ahve to do' or the words to that affect that Charlie says in a Hurly Flashfoward, while visiting him in the mental hospital, probally relates to going back to the Island.
