Ben and Grace find comfort
BEN: She did it for her brother. Olive is an amazing young woman. You’ve done an incredible job, and I can’t imagine how hard that was. And I don’t- [PAUSE] It doesn’t matter where you found the strength or with whom.
BEN: I know. But I never had to. I still love you so damn much, it hurts. And I know your love for me is out of practice, more like a memory but we have a second chance. Please remember.

Ben’s Plea for Grace to Remember
When Ben implores Grace to “please remember,” the power of his pleading makes us hope for a healing of their divide, even though we know full well the other man won’t give up without a fight, especially since his identity is being kept enticingly secret.

Danny is Not Going to Disappear
Just because Ben now knows that Grace had been seeing another man doesn’t mean that we should expect this story to evaporate. Even though she took her husband to bed, she hasn’t actually broken things off with the mystery man. The relationship was serious enough that Olive felt comfortable sharing a secret from her mother with him, so this was no fling. Honestly, it’s surprising that this guy wasn’t living with the Stone ladies.

Ben as True Leader
In the first episode, Saanvi saved Cal, Michaela saved the Pyler girls, and Grace kept her family together while the plane was missing, but all will need a true leader to show them the way, in the form of a blonde, blue-eyed, 6 foot tall, white man. Once Ben gets past his 40 days of wandering in the desert, denying his true nature, he’ll accept that this is who he’s meant to be and become the wise, compassionate all-father of the Flight 828 community. Grace, who is, you know, full of grace, or in other words, Holy Spirit, has already anointed and sanctified him.
