Thanks for the answer!
About the screen going black, I didn’t remember how it was on the original, it makes sense now.
About Desmond, I disagree and I think that his flashes from the future are in his head, but the whole travel to 1996 actually happened (about Charlie - he is wearing a different outfit, I think it’s just another day).
But then - you’re the one that took on the job of doing this monumental work, so I’m not complaining that much lol.
P.S. I see that it has been exactly one year from the original post, happy anniversary!
