Saving Charlie

Charlie shows Hiro a photo of the Burnt Toast Diner's grand opening in 1976. The photo shows Barbie standing next to Bob. Charlie says that Barbie was dating Merle Eckels, but he got jealous of the way Barbie would talk with the customers. When he accused her of doing worse, Barbie tried to break up with Merle, he killed her, slicing her throat. Hiro wonders if Barbie's murder is somehow connected to Charlie's murderer, or if he will need to time travel back and save Barbie, too. (Chapter 16)

Barbie serves a customer the Bicentennial special at the Burnt Toast Diner. She pours Hiro a cup of coffee. He asks her if Charlie is there, but she is confused and doesn't know who "he" is. She says that the only waitresses are Lynette and herself. When Hiro asks what the date is, she is perplexed, but says that it's February 19, 1976. She asks Hiro if he needs anything else, then leaves. (Chapter 41)

Hiro time travels to Barbie's funeral, held at St. Nicasius Catholic Church. (Chapter 42)

Hiro looks for a painting he saw at Barbie Travis's funeral. (Chapter 43)

Hiro time travels to Merle Eckels's execution. A guard says, "You are sentenced to death by electrocution for the murder of Barbie Travis. Do you have any last words?" Merle says, "You tell that girl's family—" and then Hiro time travels away. (Chapter 45)

Hiro wonders why his out-of-control time traveling took him to see Barbie Travis. (Chapter 47)
