Is Charlies Legacy in Jeopardy?
« on: May 17, 2007, 12:08:04 AM »
Will Charlie die?  He left his Drive Shaft ring from Liam in Aaron's crib.  He is supposed to die.  I for one believe Desmond will save him.  The reason I say this is a flash before Desmonds eye:  When Charlie was singing "OASIS" on the street "WonderWall"  it is an amazing song with lyrics that go.  "Today is gonna be the day you save me....by now you should have figured out that this is the way your gonna save me"  or close enough I drank too many beers and missed the first 10 minutes.  I'm so going to hell so bring your sun block.

I seen the ring in Aaron's crib...thing is, Claire might have to go back and get a blankie or something and find the ring then.

Quite honestly, Charlie is a dead man walking/swimming if you ask me.

I just think that Charlie put it there for Claire to find later. It's easier then saying "I am going to an underwater hatch where I flip a switch to save you and Aaron then I drown, Please take this ring and remember me."

I trust Desmond's flashes about as much as I trust spoilers. Desmond doesn't see what will happen, but what could happen. Maybe Desmond had it right, he is supposed to die for Charlie.

At least we see something about Charlie that wasn't all about Drive Shaft or his drug use.

Unless it falls into the whole Abraham thing. Desmond always see's Charlie die and saves him. But he should have had faith and let it happened, and now Charlie is spared.

Desmond also doesn't see events in total, but flashes of events in the future that are some time apart. When he had the vision of Naomi, he didn't see the entire timeline up until they found her, but only flashes of different points on the timeline. So, we assumed Charlie dove down and pushed the button and drowned as soon as he jumped off the boat. But, there could be some stuff that happens between him diving down and being captured, and then later swimming around and pushing the button and drowning. That is to say, Desmond's flashes could still be correct.

More like the Charlies family legacy...the passing down of the ring. Or did you not watch this episode too.

When his brother gave him the ring it sounded like the name Dexter Stratton was mentioned.

Yes.  The band was "named after" Dexter Stratten.  Or at least they used the same initials.  I googled Dexter Stratten and came up with nada.

Random thought - the ring was really played up.  The whole soddy mess brother passing it on to the clean (okay sort of clean as he chugs some booze...) brother - the family legacy, the initials of the band and then he takes the ring off and leaves it for Liam.  What if the ring is not really a good family legacy?  Like anyone who wears it is doomed to death? 

Okay totally lame but it is just a thought.  I am sure it is not the case as I think they were just making the connection that Charlie loves Claire and Aaron and would do anything to be the hero again so he is going to die for them as a good "family" man ought to.

The brother did clean up his act after he gave up the ring. Not sure how long later it was.
