Michaela arrives at the Stone house
MICHAELA (TO POLICE OFFICER): Hey, can you keep an eye on her?
POLICE OFFICER: Yes, ma’am.
GRACE: Who doesn’t call the cops when their child goes missing?
BEN: I know. It sounds Bu-But the people who I think are behind this are higher up on the food chain way higher. We-We’re playing into their hands by having the cops here.
GRACE: What does that even mean?
BEN: Of course she is.
MICHAELA: Yeah, my thoughts exactly.
Grace is told about everythingGRACE: Who’s Autumn? Is she involved in this?
GRACE: What does she want with our son?
BEN: In a sense. But he seems to be experiencing them more strongly than anyone else.
GRACE: Why wouldn’t you tell me this? I-I’m sorry. I
BEN: When we shared the details, it got people killed.
MICHAELA: It happened to the friends of this other passenger.
BEN: But it didn’t, so, now we think hope that it was a tragic fluke.
GRACE: [SIGHS] Okay, the era of you protecting me, that’s over.
Ben nods his head.
GRACE: Knows what, exactly?
Significance of Grace’s words to Ben
Grace comes up with probably what is probably the most memorable dialogue in the series, “The era of you protecting me is over…” In this single statement, the character seemed to represent the internal war Hollywood is now involved in, the war for equality. While other female characters such as Michaela Stone (played by Melissa Roxburgh), Saanvi Bahl (played by Parveen), and even Olive (played by Luna Blaise), for that matter, were given their own ground to stand upon, Grace was mostly treated as an object of pity.

Grace is shown Cal’s drawings
BEN: That he draws things.
BEN: And sometimes, the things that he draws, they’ve happened already, but he couldn’t have known. Other times, they haven’t happened yet, and when they do
GRACE: What What do you mean he draws them?
As Ben leaves the bedroom, Grace and Michaela follow him to Cal’s room where Ben finds Cal’s notebook of drawings. He then begins flipping through the pages showing Grace the pictures that Cal has been drawing.
BEN: Look. This is Thomas. He was a stowaway on 828. Cal knew knew his name, [PAGE FLIP] even where he was hiding. [PAGE FLIP] And this is a place where we found a group of missing passengers. [PAGE FLIP] And this [PAUSE]
GRACE: Is that?
BEN: Us. Right now.
GRACE: Now what?
Treasure-map feel to this week’s adventure
The treasure-map feel to this week’s adventure was exciting every step of the way, starting with the crisis at the house with the police thinking Ben might be responsible for his missing son as a result of marital strife. The fact that Ben couldn’t involve the police not only added to the clandestine nature of the caper; it also forced him to brief Grace on the specifics of Cal’s callings. The drawing of Grace, Ben, and Michaela holding the sketchbook was particularly eerie and effective in communicating the necessary message about Cal’s precognitive powers.

GRACE: God, he looks terrified.
BEN: Yeah, but just because he drew it doesn’t necessarily mean that
GRACE: You said yourself all these other drawings came true. Why shouldn’t we assume the same of this one?
MICHAELA: Wait, wait, wait. There’s more pages, guys. [PAGE FLIP]
There is a drawing of a man standing at a door.
BEN: Maybe. I don’t know.
MICHAELA: Okay. There’s got to be something else in there. [PAGE FLIP]
There is a drawing of trees, hills, and a road running through them.
MICHAELA: There’s a page missing.
BEN: Maybe he took it with him.
Grace recognizes one of the drawings
BEN: Wait. [PAGE FLIP] All these trees, [PAGE FLIP] lake, [PAGE FLIP] rocks. I think he left us a map.
MICHAELA: It looks like upstate, but where? [PAGE FLIP]
GRACE: Wait. Go back.
There is a drawing of the front of a church.
GRACE: I recognize this. Last summer, I was in Tannersville in the Catskills, the Town Square. This flagpole, the statue under the steeple of the church – it looked just like this.
BEN: You’re positive?
GRACE: No, it’s a crayon drawing. I’m not positive, but it could be.
BEN: Then we should get up there. I mean, if you’re right, the other drawings could be landmarks that’ll show up.
GRACE: What about the 19 cops in our house?
MICHAELA: Let me make a call.
