    Ah, the task of reviewing the almost-death of Charlie!
    The episode opens with someone (Karl) running through the woods and taking off in a boat. Sidebar: Much love for Blake Bashoff (Moritz in Spring Awakening). Anyway, the episode's flashbacks are rather disjointed at first but then their purpose comes clear: Charlie knows he is going to sacrifice himself for his friends and is writing a list of his Greatest Hits. This concept was pretty cool, actually. It must be tough for Charlie to have a best friend with a physical likeness to Jesus and a role in life like the Grim Reaper. I hate to say it, but I love it when Jack gets all corny in his speeches about pulling together and blowing them all to hell. It makes me so sad to know that Charlie would die in the finale, though...This was an overall outstanding episode that wasn't too corny for a reflection on a character's life. Also, it featured one of my favorite songs: "Wonderwall" by Oasis. You just can't go wrong with this episode. Poor Claire. Poor Aaron. Poor Charlie.
