Saanvi discovers that Zeke has the same blood marker as the 828ers. This convinces Ben that he is not lying. Moreover, Sasanvi discovers that when Zeke was in the cave, their was an electrical storm in the center of the blizzard. After ben says that perhaps the earthquake was the terrestial equivalent of the turbulence, Saanvi comes up with her “Aftershock Theory”: The plane was the earthquake, what happened to Zeke was the aftershock. — READ MORE

Eschemic blood marker
He taps her on the back.
SAANVI: [GASPS] Oh. Sorry. Hi. Thank you for coming.
BEN: Uh, if you couldn’t say it over the phone, I assume you have news.
BEN: So he wasn’t lying.
BEN: Okay. Okay, w-we need to look for any common properties between the plane and the cave uh, size, dimensions, uh, I don’t know, mineral composition, ley lines, anything. I’ve already started cross-referencing maps of the area with weather data from 2017. There was an electrical storm in the center of this blizzard, Ben. It’s extremely rare, but it can happen.
SAANVI: I can’t prove it, but it tracks.
A new data point
SAANVI: This is so huge. We have an entirely new data point. So, we can focus our research on finding any similarities between the two events, maybe more.
BEN: Meaning what?
SAANVI: Aftershock theory: The plane was the earthquake. This is the aftershock.
Jared’s text message
Ben’s cellphone chimes. He looks at his text messages.
SAANVI: Got who?
BEN: Uh, some people spray-painted an “X” on our front door and then threw a brick through our window.
BEN: Yeah, for now. But these people seem to really hate us. They don’t even think we’re human. Please be careful. I worry about you. Kind of wishing that 8B was still around.
Saanvi’s happy place
BEN: Just please be careful.
