Could be... except they weren't supposed to leave. Charlie entering the code is what allowed that. What I find interesting is (if I remember right, and I think I do) Ben told Patchy to help him clean up the mess he made by killing Charlie. I've thought for a while that Ben is changing things, but I don't know how.
I know Charlie knowing the code is what makes some say it is his destiny, but what if it means he's the last person who should have been there?
