Ep 8 – Point of No Return

DAYS 15 – 26

One might presume that the timeline continues as before such that Episode 8 picks up the same evening or night as the previous episode. However, after the flashback to Flight 828’s landing on November 4, 2018, episode 8 continues with a scene in which both Ben and Michaela are wearing different clothes than where they left off in episode 7 which suggests that these scenes do not occur on the same day.

Morning/Afternoon (Unknown Days)

  2. Ben continues to work at JP Williamson, doing normal routine assignments (presumably having Thanksgiving Day off to spend with his family).

DAY 27

Since this is Cal’s first day of school, this suggest a time jump has occurred (see above). Since most of episode 8 occurs within an 18 hour timeframe (cf. 108.3), and since Vance later states that the plane had come back three weeks ago (108.22), and the fact that episode 9 takes place on a Saturday, that brings Cal’s first day to Friday, November 30, 2018.

  2. After his work shift, but still in the office, while on the phone with Vance, Ben does a network wide search on the Singularity project experiment and Flight 828 to get the attention of someone at SP. From this Ben and Vance, while listening to the bug, learn that the project site is in Brooklyn.  This now gives Vance three data points (the farm upstate, the office on the Upper East Side, and Brooklyn) to pull cellphone data, and see how many phones pinged all three (108.17).
