|Charlie Andrews Timelines|
There has been confusion about the timelines in which Charlie Andrews exists. This article was created to categorize the separate timelines.
Original timeline (Seven Minutes to Midnight)
Charlie Andrews serves Hiro Nakamura and Ando Masahashi and recites a Japanese symbol on Hiro's jacket. When asked if she speaks the language, Charlie tells the men that she started to thumb through a Japanese phrase book last week. She tells them in Japanese that Tokyo is going to be one of her stops on her trip around the world. Ando finds it amazing that she learned all of this in one week and Charlie explains that her brain is able to remember lots and lots, whether she wants to or not. Charlie takes their orders and goes to get their food. Later, Charlie sits with Hiro, who begins to teach her more Japanese. Charlie repeats a few phrases and is soon able to talk in perfect Japanese. She tells Hiro that she thinks he is sweet and that she likes the way his cheeks wobble when he concentrates. A bell rings and Charlie tells Hiro in Japanese that she will be right back. Later, she once again checks on him before making her way into the back room. While opening a can, Charlie hears noises but is unable to see anyone. Unbeknownst to her, Sylar is hiding behind her. As Charlie opens the can, a slicing sound is heard and blood pours down from Charlie's emotionless face. Charlie then falls to the floor, dead.
Timeline 2 (Six Months Ago)
Hiro travels back in time six months ago to April 24th and meets Charlie on her birthday. Charlie serves him and Hiro tries to tell her he is from the future. Charlie is confused and is then called over to take a photo with her birthday cake. Always kind, Charlie invites Hiro to be in the photo with her. Hiro continues to plead with Charlie not to go to work tomorrow but then realizes that it is raining. Charlie comments it has been "April Showers", surprising Hiro, who realizes he has gone back too far. Charlie calms him down by offering him some cake.
Some time later, Hiro gives Charlie a Japanese phrasebook as a birthday present. He comments on how she learned Japanese quickly and she responds that "lately [I've] just been able to remember everything". He tries to explain to her that both she and he have powers. She doesn't believe him and dismisses his giving of flowers and serving her order as a magic trick. Hiro ends the conversation by saying "tomorrow the swallow will slay the dragons".
The next day Hiro shows the Japanese newspaper which she reads flawlessly that shows the Tokyo Swallows defeated the Junichi Dragons in baseball yesterday. She still doesn't believe him until he makes one thousand origami cranes appear instantaneously. He shows her two plane tickets to Japan that he has bought for them in order to escape Sylar and she agrees to go on the trip with him.
Some time later Hiro tells Charlie about a 24-hour samurai film festival in Austin and wants to take her to prepare for their trip to Japan. She then reveals to him that she has a blood clot in her brain, she is inches away from a brain aneurysm, and that she is dying. She tells Hiro that he saved her by making her feel alive and filling her life with more joy than she could imagine. She confesses to him, "Ai shiteru," which is Japanese for "I love you." When Hiro goes to kiss her, he disappears. Charlie lives for six months and meets Hiro again. To maintain the space-time continuum, she feigns ignorance. She yet again faces her death at the hands of Sylar.
Timeline 3 (Once Upon a Time in Texas)
This timeline is actually an extension of Timeline 2; it extends after Charlie takes Hiro’s order in Seven Minutes to Midnight. Hiro from 2009 time travels to 2006 to save Charlie. Hiro introduces himself to the 2006 Hiro as a Future Hiro and tells his past self that Charlie is dead and his mission now is to "save the waitress" and that the cheerleader will be fine. Hiro convinces his past self who teleports six months into the past, thus maintaining the previous timeline. Hiro is back in the photo of Charlie's birthday party and after being reminded by Samuel, Hiro tells Past Ando what Past Hiro has done and convinces him to stay and wait for Past Hiro at the diner. Charlie is in the storage room preparing some things. She thinks she hears something and looks around. Behind her, Sylar raises his hand and prepares to telekinetically remove her brain. However, Hiro prevents this and saves Charlie. Charlie meets with Hiro in the storage room and the two embrace. He offers to take her anywhere in the world at that second and Charlie notices that he is serious. She decides on Otsu, Japan and begins to uncontrollably recite information on Otsu. Hiro snaps her out of it and Charlie realizes that the aneurysm has ruptured.
Later, Hiro returns to the diner with Sylar. They take Charlie into the storage room and offer to fix her brain. Charlie accepts that she is meant to die but Hiro states they are meant for each other. As poetry is recited to her, Charlie feels Sylar fix her brain. Her eye begins to briefly bleed and she realizes that her blood clot is gone. Charlie soon approaches Hiro and is angry with him. She says that Hiro cheated and wonders how he could let Sylar go on and kill so many people. Hiro claims that it is their "happily ever after" and that he loves her. Charlie believes he is selfish and leaves.
Charlie later apologizes to Hiro for acting so mean and thanks him for saving her life. She shows him an origami paper crane and tells him that she was trying to make one thousand so they could get their happy ending. She admits her love for Hiro and the two kiss. After the kiss, Charlie tells Hiro they should go and as they walk, Charlie is taken away by Arnold and Samuel and left in 1944.
Current Timeline (Brave New World)
This timeline occurs simultaneously with the third timeline, with two versions of Charlie Andrews living simultaneously. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin on January 26, 1944, she got a job in a munitions factory. She married a wonderful man and has had four children and seven grandchildren. She lived the next 65 years, while the younger Charlie Andrews is born and lives the first few decades of her life in the third timeline.
After Thanksgiving 2009, the older Charlie meets Hiro Nakamura in a hospital. He apologizes, explaining that Samuel sent her through time because Hiro loved her. Charlie tells Hiro that she would have waited for him, but she was middle-aged by the time he was born. She tells him that she is happy that she got to see him before she died. The brain aneurysm never troubled her, but everything else is about to give out. Hiro says that he can fix everything, and Ando takes his friend aside. Hiro says he'll go back to 1944 and save Charlie, and Ando asks who he's doing it for; Charlie, or himself. Hiro insists he's doing it for Charlie, and Ando walks out of the room.
After talks with Ando, Hiro explains his plan to Charlie. She says that it sounds like a good life, but she's already had a wonderful life. Charlie's granddaughter Sally comes in and Charlie introduces her to Hiro. Charlie sends her to bring her mother and father, and then tells Hiro about her family. She doesn't want to cause all of that to go away. Ando comes in and tells Hiro that he heard from Noah, who needs them now. Hiro looks in at Charlie as her family gathers around her, and realizes that he has saved her and his hero's journey is at an end. Ando tells him that Samuel is in Central Park, and destiny calls. Hiro bows to a touched Charlie and blows her a kiss, touches Ando, and teleports away while Charlie watches through the window.
