According to EW: ‘Lost’ exclusive: War erupts over Charlotte’s real age!
Holy cow! So Charlotte’s age has been a big mystery, since she was born in 1979, but clearly, Faraday saw her in 1974. You know how big of a deal this is!?
It’s not! Holy shit, people, has it come to this? This is a big deal? This is the first continuity mistake of note on Lost (yes, there are some other very minor ones that I generally attribute to poetic license, like traveling distances over the island in short periods). That said, it’s just not a big deal. It doesn’t ruin the plot, it doesn’t change any of the mystery, it’s just a simple mistake that really isn’t that big of a deal. So Charlotte is a little older than we thought. Or she got her own birth year wrong. Whatever.
Can we get to talking about the important things, like where is Faraday in 1977? Where are Bernard and Rose? Why didn’t Sun go back to 1977? Why can’t Widmore come back to the island? And… ahem… four toed statue?!
