This is my first post.
I took note during season 4 that Charlotte was clearly stated to have been born late in 1979, yet early in season 5, we see Daniel Faraday looking at a small red headed girl running by. Per other questions here, it seems to be universally accepted that Faraday, Burke and Sawyer make their last jump to 1974. How can Charlotte be at least 2-4 years of age in 1974 and simultaneously not be born until 1979? Did the writers make a mistake regarding Charlotte’s age, are we making assumptions about the year that the three “landed” with Dharma, or am I making the assumption that the young Charlotte is indeed Charlotte at all?
