  1. Stated as questions or possibilities (avoid question marks, "Maybe", "I think", etc).
  2. More appropriate for another article.
  3. Illogical or previously disproven.
  4. Proven by canon source, and moved to main article.
  5. Speculative and lacking any evidence to support arguments.
  6. Responding to another theory (use discussion page instead).
  • This does not include responses that can stand alone as its own theory.
  • Usage of an indented bullet does not imply the statement is a response.

See the Lostpedia theory policy for more details.

  • Lewis was able to see Charlie because he was also part of Hurley's imagination.
    • This is highly possible. He was playing Connect Four with Lewis and winning. Leonard would play Connect Four with himself while repeating the numbers. We can assume that Leonard was playing against someone of his imagination. Only we could not see that because the flashback was not from Leonard's POV. That is why Lewis saw Charlie, because Lewis is part of Hurley's psyche.
  • Lewis is crazy himself. He did have a hallucination of a man staring at Hurley, but it was completely unrelated and part of his own mental problems. However, Lewis's suggestion planted the seeds for Hurley's own tangent hallucination of Charlie.
  • Jacob manifested as Charlie, and therefore had a real physical presence, which is why he could slap Hurley, and why Lewis could see him.
    • This makes sense to the extent that manifestations of the island seem to exist prior to anyone seeing them, and are not just in the minds of those who see them, as proved by the Missing Pieces episode So It Begins, in which Christian sends Vincent on a mission. Charlie and Christian could be the same entity, or elements of the same entity, as they both seem to have similar purposes, leading others to their paths (Christian saying of Jack "he has work to do", and Charlie telling Hurley "they need you").
    • It also makes sense since both Sayid and Shannon could see the hallucinatory Walt in "Abandoned."
    • Charlie's manifestation is much like that of the horse Kate and Sawyer see. It is visible to both characters and is physical as we see Kate petting the horse.
    • And Walt as a hallucinatory figure also said "Get up John, you have work to do" or something along those lines.
  • Lewis himself was part of the island either previously working for Hanso or was part of the rescue team
    • But he still would never have met Charlie.
  • Someone else is watching Hurley (like Matthew Abaddon?), maybe from a car, and that is who Lewis meant; Hurley didn't notice the car, and imagined Charlie.
    • The man Lewis sees is the man Sayid kills before breaking Hurley out of Santa Rosa.
  • The Lewis that spoke to Hurley is not the real Lewis, but is another physical manifestation by the monster to direct Hurley's attention to the physical manifestation of Charlie. As we saw in Left Behind, the monster can split itself up.
  • Maybe the particular mental status of Lewis mind allows him to see Charlie, unlike "sane" people.
