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.
Late Evening (Unknown day)
- Michaela confronts Ben saying he has to get his life back to normal, and one way of doing that is to send Cal back to school (108.2).
Work Shift (Unknown Days)
- Michaela continues to work out of the 129th precinct, doing normal routine assignments.
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.
Morning — 11/30
- Michaela shows up in the kitchen while Cal is getting ready for school frustrated. She apologizes for not saying good morning to Ben. She is trying to get Jared out of her head, but the captain insists they ride together (108.5).

- As Michaela tries to get closer to the man, she insists on telling him she knows exactly how he feels, but that only pushes the man further away. “People are dying,” he says before jumping to his death (108.12)
- Michaela calls Ben and tells him that she failed a calling (108.13).
- Jared and Michaela go to Harvey’s apartment looking for clues, where Michaela sees “I am the angel of death” written in large red letters on Harvey’s bedroom wall. Jared finds a green t-shirt from O’Ryan’s Tavern and the obituaries of two people (108.15)
- When the bartender at O’Ryan’s Tavern tells Jared and Michaela that Harvey had mentioned to the couple about having callings shortly before their deaths, Michaela worries that something might happen to Jared, too (108.19).
- When Michaela comes home from work, Grace is getting ready for her date with Ben. Grace tells Michaela that while she was shopping earlier in the day she met Lourdes who was buying a fertility kit. After Grace tells Michaela that “it sounds like Jared’s moving on,” Michaela says, “and so should I” (108.19).
- Michaela goes to the gym, and returns home to take a bath (cf. 108.19).

- At the police station Michaela is looking at the plans of Red Hook warehouse (cf. 109.4), when Jared asks what she is doing. She does not tell him about it because she cares too much for him, and does not want to worry about how he might die because he is helping with the callings (109.6).

- When Jared wakes up, Michaela says she will get Lourdes, but Jared says, “Stay with me” (109.21).
Ep 10 – Crosswinds
It is uncertain how long this timeline will be able to map out the dates, or that it is even important to do so once the 28-day milestone (a significant number) has been reached in episode 9. But as long as we are given clues in the script, we will keep doing it. According to Michaela, it has been 10 days since the last calling (110.3), that means the events of episode 10 occur on Monday, December 10, 2018. It is disparaging that there are no Christmas decorations visible, and that there are green leaves still on the trees, no snow, etc.
10 Days Since the Explosion
After Grace kicked Ben out of the house, he and Michaela presumably searched for an apartment where we find them living in episode 10 (cf. 110.3). We can also presume that she continues to visit Jared, at least until his discharge.
Morning — 12/10

- Michaela receives a text from Saanvi, that she and the other passengers who witnessed the explain explode, are to meet that afternoon at Fiona’s beach house for an important meeting (cf. 110.2)
- Michaela arrives at the beach house where Saanvi shows her the comatose patients sitting in chairs. She immediately identifies with one of them, Paul Santino, who Saanvi says was abandoned by his wife (110.7).
- When she tugs on Paul Santino’s shirt she receives a calling, “Find Her!” while Paul Santino begins waking up (110.7).
- She and Saanvi question Paul who does not remember his own name or the fact that he is married to a woman named Helen. Michaela says she will double check (110.7).
- Michaela meets with the other passengers at the beach house (110.8).
- When Michaela arrives at work, she gets permission from Captain Riojas to investigate Helen, treating her absence as a missing-person case. When she sees Jared, having returned back to work for the first time since the explosion, hey hug. (110.10).
- Michaela tells Jared about Helen’s disappearance. He agrees to help her (110.13), and they go to her house where they find unread newspapers, unopened mail, and a container of warm milk on the kitchen counter dated November 6 (110.15).
- Michaela returns to the beach house to try and jog Paul’s memory, where she meets up with Ben again who tells her that the Major is a woman. She then experiences the same the calling she had earlier, “Find Her!” Ben and Michaela are unsure if the calling means that they should be looking for Helen or the Major, and decide to continue looking for both (110.16).
- After Jared texts Michaela that he knows where Helen is, they find her at a motel where she tells them that Paul was abusive toward her, and felt her prayers were answered when the plane went missing. But then when the plane came back, she felt as though a wrecking ball was smashing into everything she had built during the 5 1/2 years Paul was presumed dead (110.17).
- On the way back to the precinct, Michaela doesn’t say a word to Jared. She thinks that she, like Paul’s returning, might be some kind of wrecking ball smashing into Jared’s life (110.19).
- Michaela tells Jared that she is going to tell Captain Riojas she does not want to work with him anymore (110.19).
- Michaela returns to the beach house and loses control of her emotions with Paul Santino calling him a monster who beats his wife. Saanvi intervenes telling Michaela to stop it. Paul who does not remember anything is dumbfounded (110.22).
- Michaela then goes back to her apartment where later Jared stops by for a visit telling her that she is not a wrecking ball, but a soulmate. After Michaela hears Jared tell her that he loves her, she kisses him, and they end up having sex for the first time since her return (110.24).
- Michaela returns to the beach house, where she experiences the calling “Find Her!” for the third time. This time she realizes that the voice in her head is not hers and that the calling is someone else’s calling (110.28)
- Later in the evening, Saanvi finds out that the experiments on the passengers were intended to find out which passengers were the most sensitive to the callings, Michaela, Ben, and Saanvi are now even more concerned about Cal’s safety (110.30)
