The big question that many Two and a Half Men fans are asking themselves is whether or not the original Charlie Sheen will appear as Charlie Harper in the series finale. Sheen himself has made no secret of the fact that he would love to return to the series after his rather infamous and shocking exit in 2011.
Furthermore, the one-hour show will focus on whether or not Charlie Harper is actually dead.
Charlie Harper was supposedly killed in Paris after being struck by a train. It is implied that his long-time stalker and recent fiance Rose killed him — Charlie proposed to her in France, and then, a few days later, Rose found him in the shower with another woman. He was killed the next day after falling off a Paris Metro platform and being hit by a train. Of the whole incident, Rose says, “Never cross a crazy woman.”
However, no one ever sees Charlie’s dead body, leading to the speculation — is Charlie Harper still alive?
CBS President Nina Tassler refused to comment on whether or not Charlie Sheen will be resurrected for the final show. But she did show full confidence in the show’s executive producer and co-creator Chuck Lorre.
“Chuck [Lorre] is an extraordinary showrunner. I can promise you there will be a lot of surprises and out of respect from Chuck, and this is a direct quote, he has promised to deliver what he’s calling ‘a mystery sandwich.'”
As for Ashton Kutcher, who replaced Charlie Sheen four years ago after Sheen’s very public exit from the series, he is sad to see the series end. Ahead of the Two and a Half Men series finale, Ashton Kutcher posted a message on his Facebook page in tribute to his co-star Jon Cryer, calling Cryer a “true partner in every sense of the word.”
Since replacing Charlie Sheen on the hit series, Kutcher and Cryer have developed a strong friendship during the show, which ends Thursday night, bringing 12 seasons of bachelor mishaps and single-dad hijinks to an end.
Kutcher’s full message to Cryer was incredibly sweet.
“Thank you Mr. Cryer for making this job never feel like work. I will miss working with you every day. You are a true partner in every sense of the word. In four years I never heard you complain and never heard you speak ill of another person even if they took advantage of your kindness and generosity. Your are a gentleman. You are a talent. You are someone I look up to. See you tomorrow night. #twoandahalfmen.”
