Why would Charlotte not leave? Yes she was shot by Ben and taken hostage by Locke but she also was able to see miricles of the island.
Remeber that she sat in Locke's group and asked many questions reagarding out LOSTIES and everytime she heard some intresting fact she would reply "that's amazing!" So with knowledge of half of our LOSTIES why wouldn't she want to stay and discover some things on her own.
It is part of her job to discover old civilizations. My guess is that she along with Dan, Miles, and Frank will stay on the island and not return.

Good point. She does seem like a pretty driven person, so I'm wondering if they tricked Dharma to do their own research, or if what they are doing is part of their Dharma mission?

Also, they gotta return sometime. Whats the point of making a great scientific discovery if you don't get any recognition for it? :)

Great thought, I never thought that they were being manipulated like Ben does to our LOSTIES.
My thought thou on charlotte is yeah o.k. she makes a HUGE discovery on the island and wants to go home and tell everyone about what she found.

" NOT GONNA HAPPEN "

Charlotte would be killed instantly by whom ever sent her there. I'd see her staying on the island.
which brings me to my other thought that if anyone left they would be killed for having knowledge.

I like that theory. Thats classic bad guy behavior.

"Thanks for figuring that out for us, Red." BANG no more Charlotte.

None of the Fantastic Fours true motivations have been revealed, and I fear if they don't speed it up a bit, we won't know until the final show of 2008 which will be a mistake.

Nor do we know the motivation of Abaddon & his bosses for selecting the Fantastic Four.  Rather than choosing in-house specialists, they choose this disparate group of outsiders, who could become loose canons.  Yes, Naomi was supposed to keep them under lock & key.  But what were the three specialists instructed to do, and what additional things beyond their purview are they itching to do?  That'll be important.

What if....

Frank, Dan, Miles and charlotte are there to replace some of our 815 survivors?
The island needs them just as bad as our 815ers.

The island/Jacob doesn't like technology, as proven when Locke & Ben visited the cabin.  Ergo, it wouldn't want to bring a guy who flies a whirly-bird, a woman who uses atom decay to measure age, a bumbler who plays with big wireless routers and rockets, and a wise-ass who uses a dustbuster in a deceptive manner.  So, I can't see any motive by the island/Jacob  to bring them.

Charlotte was barely "kidnapped"...she basically agreed to go with Locke's group, and the moment she felt otherwise she started to leave, telling Locke she wasn't asking permission. That told me that she never felt like a captive. Once they got to the compound she may have felt like one, but we never witnessed her demeanor once they arrived there.

When Ben shot her, she stayed alive because she was wearing a bulletproof vest. That tells me that she was fully aware of the possibilities of harm and the dangers that she may experience. If so, she wouldn't go back to the freighter so quickly, especially once she was back with her crew.

I would like to see more of her character, of the Fantastic Four she is the one we don't know much about. She needs to do something on the island. Solve a mystery for us at least.

I agree with Juggie!

I'm wondering if she doesn't have a milder version of Dan's social ineptness.

Please don't let Charlotte go to the Adam and Eve skelations and dig up collars on them.

She needs to have a "ZOWIE!!!" moment like Brenda, Dee Dee and Taffy - the Teen angels.....

......does that age me?

I'd LOVE for Miles to make contact with them.

My theory is that she was brought by TPTB to reveal the archaeological secrets connected to the civilization that preceded the Others/Hostiles.  Perhaps show how they, like the present day Maya, are decendents of a great civilization that had collapsed.
