  • When Charlie tells Hurley "They need you," he is talking about the survivors on the Island.
    • He is talking about Aaron and Claire. Hurley left them when he switched from Ben and Locke's group to Jack's. Charlie wants his friend Hurley to help the 2 people he cares about most on the island.
  • He wants Hurley to bring Aaron back to the island.
  • He was merely a projection of Jacob, the same force that corralled the 815'ers together in the first place.
  • Hurley has been seeing visions of Charlie and says to Jack, "I think he wants us to go back." He is Jacob. Charlie is just a manifestation of Jacob, and Jacob appears as Charlie to provide a friendly/familiar face to Hurley, and to deliver him the message that "they need you". The message of "they need you" has been interpreted by Hurley as a message to go back to the island, as seen with his conversation with Jack while playing basketball. Jacob wants the Oceanic 6 back on the island so that they can fulfill their destiny as they were supposed to.
    • Jacob as Charlie could also explain why in "Through the Looking Glass", Jack still thinks Christian is alive. Jacob has also appeared to Jack as Christian, in order to manipulate him back on the island.
  • It really was Charlie, because when the bomb detonated in 1977 realities to split, causing one branch that actually had 815 land at LAX. My belief is that those that died on the island somehow retained the memories or the island. If both realities/memories somehow exist in the same timeline, Charlie would not flash back to the island since he's dead there, but his conciousness would be free to move about this new reality like he landed. He would then go warn Hugo that he needs to return.

Jacob's cabin

  • It is the the Monster or Jacob's nemesis that took form of Christian, Jacob, and possibly the cabin to deceive Hurley. We have seen multiple times that the Monster has taken other forms to manipulate people.
  • Christian is a relative of Jacob's, thats why he is in the cabin. Christian is Aaron's grandfather, and in the Bible Aaron is Jacobs great-great grandson.
