Flashback--Charlie Pace

Goofs: Charlie takes a step and breaks the virgin statue. Half a second later it's broken in a totally different way.

  • The chain necklace that Mr. Eko takes from his brother in the episode ''The 23rd Psalm'' is a metal type. In this and the next episodes the chain necklace is totally different.
  • The version of Brixton underground station is very lazily reproduced: the 'U' and 'D' of the 'UNDERGROUND' roundel have been the same size as the rest of the word since before Brixton station was built; the white circle is not part of the roundel; the station appears to be accessed through a plate-glass window; there is no reason for a black cab to be parked at the side of the road; also, the cars are all parked along the right-hand side of the road, which they would never be in the UK.
  • At the beginning of the show when Charlie comes out of the sea on the beach in the first shot, there are just Charlie's footprints around Aaron's cradle, but in the next shots there are lots of footprints.
