The ultimate reveal of Kelly’s killer was a bit of a letdown as we were led to believe it might be part of some larger conspiracy or supernatural occurrence. Instead, it was the maid, driven crazy with jealousy that Kelly had returned. It was a rather anticlimactic end to the investigation, uncovered only by coincidence when Michaela caused her to crash in order to save Beverly’s life.
But the only reason Michaela even got involved in the case was because she also felt a connection to the phrase Kelly kept saying on television, “Own My Truth.” Michaela wrote it as “Own Your Truth” on the refrigerator, which begs the question, why are she and Ben sharing other people’s missions?
First, they shared the same one with “Set Them Free,” ultimately freeing the missing girls. Then, Ben heard the same music that helped him set free an innocent kid falsely accused of cleaning out the jewelry store he worked at last week. This week, it was Michaela’s turn to share that phrase with Kelly so she could be drawn into the investigation, meet Isaiah, go to Beverly’s and through trying to find her later, solve the murder case.
Are Ben and Michaela special in some way? Everyone else seems to be solely pursuing their own missions based on their visions or voices or music or whatever. So what is the difference, other than these two being our gateway into the show? Do they hold a more significant role in whatever happened to the passengers? Are they designated helpers to help the others fulfill whatever their visions are.
