*** In the season 10 finale he convinces a man to set himself on fire, and the guy actually does. It's strongly implied the man died.

[[WMG: Mac isn't really gay. He's just confused and the writers are just messing with us]]
I think people on message boards started to pick up ambiguously gay cues with Mac and the writers decided to hint more strongly at it just for fun

* This makes perfect sense considering the Flanderization really set in in Season 3, when the main 4 turned 30. [[FridgeBrilliance Their bodies can no longer process so much alcohol.]]

[[WMG: The judge from the recent episode is Carl Winslow]]
At some point in his life he had his name changed then relocated. Anything to get away from Steve Urkle. Which also makes Its Always Sunny a shared universe with Family Matters.

... is simply due to their constant drinking. It's actually pretty obvious - anyone drinking this much for this long is guaranteed to suffer some rather unpleasant effects. Some of effects this can have (according to Wikipedia) include impaired development, irritability, antisocial behaviour, depression, anxiety, panic, psychosis, hallucinations, delusions .. remind you of anyone? The way the Gang acts now, in the 11th season, is just the logical consequence after years and years of drinking. This show does have a StatusQuo (the Gang can never suceed), but there's also a lot of character development, and since the gang never had to face reality because of Frank's "endless goddamn supply of money", his crazy, depraved antics ''plus'' their excessive consumption of alcohol ''plus'' the occasional drug habit, the showrunners are simply depicting the effects this behaviour had on these characters as straight-forward as possible. Which might also be the reason why the show recieves more and more criticism as the {{Flanderisation}} continues - because watching a person fall apart due to the long-term effects of alcohol consumption simply ''isn't fun''. It might just be SeasonalRot, but it could also be an attempt to show that even though the Gangs weird antics and schemes are pretty fun to watch, their behaviour is seriously harmful to them and others. And even though the fans of the show can really appreciate really, really DarkComedy, there's a real chance there to make this show ''incredibly'' deep as well.

* Has it ever been implied that he's killed people? It's certainly been implied he's mentally capable of it but I can't recall anything to suggest he has actively killed anyone.

[[WMG: Charlie will be the only member of the gang left standing during the finale.]]
Wouldn't put it past the show in Dennis eventually snapping and killing the group, with Charlie barely surviving the ordeal. With the gang dead and Dennis incarcerated Charlie would not only move out of Philly but actually maintain a stable life without the group. Its this kind of tragic yet bittersweet ending is the only possible ending this series could have.

[[WMG: Rickety Cricket is the portrait to the gang's Dorian Gray.]]
In the famous story, Dorian Gray has a portrait that he thinks is perfect. He wants it to age instead of him so he can live an amoral, hedonistic lifestyle. The gang lives a similar kind of life. There is next to no physical effect on the gang, but a whole lot of physical damage can be seen on Rickety Cricket.
