  1. Cal said to his father, Ben, ” I wasn’t afraid of a flight. I don’t want to be in New York. This is where I have cancer. No more school, no more anything. I don’t want to die.”

    By the end of S1, Cal appears to have overcome his fear of dying. Cal said to his sister, Olive, regarding the ‘death-day’ expiration date, “It’s okay, Ollie. I know. I just didn’t know how to tell you.” (116.20)

    Btw, what’s happening with Cal’s cancer. Is it in remission or has he been completely cured?
