Who will die next?
In Reentry, Kelly Taylor's brains were violently blown out. Point of No Return showed Harvey Stein committing suicide by jumping off a building. Dead Reckoning brought us the deaths of Laurence Belson and Robert Vance. As for Belson, good riddance. I'm still not convinced that Vance is dead. At least, I don't want him to be.
With the Major's arrival in New York City, the series of events taking place in Crosswinds will likely lead to even more deaths. There's double-dealing, double-crossing, and possibly double-dipping going on. Which makes it double-likely someone will soon find him or herself in a body bag.
But who will it be?
She was a passenger on Flight 828. Her research was used to illegally experiment on her fellow kidnapped passengers. She receives a paycheck from the same people who conducted the torturous experiments.
It's obvious Clarke knows more than she has been willing to divulge. She's always at the right place and at the right time. She helped Team Ben find the second location of the hostages. She was present when the hostages were rescued. She was also responsible for immediately providing a safe haven for the freed hostages to hide out.
Either Clarke is being duped by the bad guys or she's being duplicitous. Either way, if she suffers Kelly Taylor's fate, it will not be a surprise.
By doing so, it appears Powell has drawn the ire of someone who ranks high above his pay grade. He was last seen being involuntarily shoved into a Cadillac Escalade. Will he ever be seen or heard from again? Or not?
How Autumn ever boarded an airplane defies logic. Although, she had outstanding arrest warrants, she bought a ticket, received a boarding pass, and was successfully seated on Flight 828. Only to be arrested upon returning by Vance and later held hostage by Laurence Belson and his evil mad scientists.
Make no mistake. Autumn is disposable. Belson blackmailed her to spy on Ben Stone and others. She agreed. Then she had a change of heart and decided to renege on her deal by throwing her cellphone into the ocean. Little did she realize the deal she made was unbreakable.
Autumn was given a new cellphone and instructed the Major wanted to talk with her. She now faces a do or die situation. Of course, her situation is more perilous than that. It's more likely do and then die.
Let's be honest. Danny's only role can't solely be one where he is simply a controversial third-party love interest ... the unwanted fly in the ointment villain. His role has explode into something much bigger.
He deserves a piece of the action. It doesn't matter if he's hit by bomb fragmentation, a bullet or bullets, or even stabbed in the back with a knife by a former jilted lover, he should be given a chance to die. Others have died and could possibly die. Why should he be given immunity from death?
If he's not violently murdered or accidentally hit by a car and killed, perhaps he should follow Harvey Stein's example and jump off a building.
The best way to boost ratings is to kill off a main character. On the other hand, the best way to permanently tank ratings is to kill off a main character. When it comes to killing off main characters, there has to be balance. So, which character has the most likely chance to die?
Of course, it's Ben. He's always involved in the dangerous situations. Same with Michaela and Jared. Is it possible the Grim Reaper will take one of the twins, Olive or Cal? Could Saanvi find her way into the afterlife? What about Grace? A lot of Champagne bottle corks would be popped if Grace dies next. But not me, I would cry.
What about you? Who do you think will die next? And here's a bonus question, who do you think should or deserves to die next?
The person who should die is someone from one of the love triangles. Which means either Lourdes or Danny ... or both should be thrown off the boat in cement boots and swim with the fishes. As I see it, the love triangles are dead anyway.
Of course, the individual who deserves to die is responsible for kidnapping and torturing the 11 passengers. Marko, Paul, Autumn, et. al., will never be the same. So, who is responsible? The Major? Fiona Clarke?
The Major deserves to die solely for being the biggest and baddest of the bad guys. No offense meant to Grace. But the Major deserves to die a painful and excruciating death. And if Fiona Clarke is being duplicitous, she deserves to be hanged in the public square.
This question has been answered. Or has it? It was suggested that Bill Daley and Fiona Clarke died in a plane resulting from being shot down by F-16 fighter jets. Perhaps, the suggestion was a misdirection.
But I'm puzzled. Who would shoot down a nonthreatening civilian aircraft? No legitimate authority that I know. Then who would murder a helpless meteorologist like Dr. Roger Mencin. Circumstantial evidence points to the Major with Autumn Cox as a co-conspirator.
If I had to choose between Zeke, Jared, and Michaela; I would choose Zeke to die. Jared is not directly involved with the Callings or the alleged "expiration death date." If Cal's 'tombstones' drawing is accurate, Zeke's time will be up in December. And if Zeke was to die before his expected expiration date; then June 2, 2024 would continue to be an end-of-life mystery for Ben, Cal, Michaela, Saanvi and the other 828 passengers.
Jared has to redeem himself before he dies. So does Michaela. Both need to live in order for redemption to take place. It has been strongly insinuated that someone got shot. What's the point of someone getting shot in a season finale if they don't die. Jared has already been seriously injured (at the Red Hook facility). Michaela is one of the two main characters. She's not dying. That leaves Zeke next in line to die.
(For the record. Cal's not always correct when it comes to his drawings. He still hasn't revealed the name of the mystery person in his family [portrait] drawing. Either that or the drawing is as meaningless as Danny's last name.)
Michaela is definitely not dying, that's completely out of the running. The person I want to die is Jared, because he is the very worst person in the whole show, but I do have reason to think it will happen. Zeke is being built up too much as a main character next season to be killed at the start and of course Michaela is impossible, leaving Jared (if anyone dies).
Zeke is being built up too much as a main character next season to be killed at the start
True. Very true. It would seem that when it comes to the writers' preference in promoting a main character; from all indications it appears that Zeke has replaced Jared as a featured attraction, albeit, probably temporarily.
(if anyone dies).
This is what I fear most. No one dies. No one is permanently or physically disabled. No real consequences ... like someone dying or being confined to a wheelchair. If no one is killed in this scene, it's something that could've been held and used in the season 2 opener (as a flashback) ... or omitted from the script altogether. JMO.
