[Episode 4 “case” involved the stowaway on Flight 828, which turned out to be a bit of a disappointment based on the hype of the promos, who was nothing more than a refugee from Jamaica who was in love with a flight attendants cousin. And so she smuggled him on board and helped him escape after landing.
The drawback for the man, Thomas, was that he didn’t get the NSA explanation that they’d all disappeared for five-and-a-half years, so he was absolutely freaking out and wondering why his boyfriend, Leo, wasn’t there for him. He wound up committed as a John Doe.
But that brings the question of why the flight attendant, Bethany, didn’t get a calling? Why go through both Saanvi and Michaela, but not Bethany directly? Especially as she was the one who was able to identify the statue from Bethesda Fountain.
It turns out, the calling may have needed Saanvi involved because she had access to where Thomas was being held, and it needed Michaela involved because she knew the safe place to take Thomas, which was the boiler room of the building Kelly owned. It’s now tied up in probate as Kelly is dead and he husband incarcerated. Coincidence? Not on “Manifest.”
