Charlotte will show up again. Her body is gone, like Christian's, Yemi's and Charlie's.
I don't think it's like them.  They flashed to a different time.. Charlotte's body did not.

I think everyone is reading too much into the body of Charlotte thing, they simply probably didn't want to pay Rebecca Mader to play dead for a scene, so they added a line of dialog to explain it in the universe.

Here is the official explanation about the age discrepancy. The producers now admit it is their fault.

Sooooo, I guess "dead thread doesn't mean dead thread".

LOL, you see what I did there?? I took the title of an upcoming episode of LOST (A show we all enjoy), and made it relevant to the topic at hand, While simultaneously tying it into a comment I made earlier in the thread. Man, that was some good old fashioned humor.

Charlotte's real age!

Breaking news on the whole Charlotte's age controversy. http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/03/lost-exclusive.html

I was not sure where to post this and I did not want people to miss it so I started a new topic. Now we just need them to clear up Ethan's age. Actually until I read this I was starting to think the two were related and connected with some time travel thing happening  ::)

'Lost' exclusive: War erupts over Charlotte's real age!

Mar 23, 2009, 09:34 PM | by Michael Ausiello

Categories: Lost

Rebeccamader_lAn ugly dispute between Rebecca Mader and her former Lost bosses over the correct age of her late character, Charlotte, appears to have been settled. Thanks, in part, to, well, me.

But first, let's flash back to the most recent Lost podcast, during which exec producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse -- in attempting to explain how Faraday could have seen a young Charlotte in 1974 when she wasn't born until 1979 -- alleged that Mader changed the age of her character from 28 to 37 in an earlier script "because she did not really want to brand herself as 37, which is what she would have had to been had we stuck to the initial script."

Mader fired back on her Facebook page, accusing Team Darlton of throwing her under the bus. "The timeline error was their mistake," she harrumphed, "and they are making it out to be my fault. Not cool."

Reached for comment this evening, D&C now concede that they got their facts wrong. "Rebecca is absolutely right and we apologize to both her and the entire fan community for screwing up the story," the pair said in a joint email. "By way of explanation, here's what happened:

There were a gazillion questions about the timeline discrepancy in that young Charlotte clearly exists in 1974, but wasn't supposed to be born until 1979, per a single line of dialogue courtesy of Ben back in episode #402. When we inquired as to how this happened, the intel came back that we used Rebecca Mader's birthday, July 2, 1979 because she was actually eight years YOUNGER than the character as originally conceived/scripted. We misremembered this as having come from Rebecca herself on the set, but in fact, it came several days earlier when our continuity expert Gregg Nations pointed it out and suggested using Rebecca's actual birthday for Charlotte. And so, the mistake was OURS. Rebecca's production draft DID have the date as being 1979.

Our first mistake was the timeline gaffe, but the much more significant one was wrapping Rebecca up in this when she had nothing to do with it. Not her fault on any level. It was our bad. One hundred percent. We will say as much in a very special "Eating Crow" edition of our Podcast tomorrow. Speaking of which, what a wonderful world we live in where we can make a comment in a Podcast that triggers a response on someone's Facebook page and that triggers a mea culpa on someone else's blog. Ah, technology."

I'm glad that's settled.
