Season 4

Season: 1–3, Episodes: 65, Faction: Survivors


Charlie Hieronymus Pace was a survivor from the middle section of Oceanic Flight 815. Before the crash, he was the bassist and principal songwriter for the rock band Drive Shaft. He was addicted to heroin, but he kicked the habit on the island. He also suffered from self-doubt before the crash, but he formed new relationships on the island, including a friendship with Hurley and a romantic relationship with Claire Littleton.

Learning he was fated to die, Charlie Pace sacrificed himself to guide the survivors toward safety. After his death, Charlie has continued to guide his friend Hurley.

In the flash-sideways, he was reunited with his lover, Claire Littleton after she gave birth to Aaron, and along with their friends, they moved on.

Appearances to Hurley

4×01 – The Beginning of the End


Charlie also appeared to Hurley during his years off the island. Hurley first saw him in a convenience store and panicked, and his flight turned into a full on car chase with the LAPD. In the interrogation room, Hurley hallucinated Charlie drowning, disturbing him so greatly that he agreed to be taken back to the Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute. Charlie began visiting him regularly there, possibly even visible to one of the other patients. At an early visit, he told Hurley “they” needed him, apparently referring to the people still on the Island. Hurley closed his eyes and counted to five, and Charlie disappeared. (“The Beginning of the End”)

4×10 – Something Nice Back Home


On a later visit, Charlie said Jack would soon visit and gave Hurley two messages to give him. One: “You’re not supposed to raise him”. Two: Jack would soon receive a visitor of his own. (“Something Nice Back Home”)
