Passengers

Synopsis: After a plane crash, a young therapist, Claire, is assigned by her mentor to counsel the flight's five survivors. When they share their recollections of the incident -- which some say include an explosion that the airline claims never happened -- Claire is intrigued by Eric, the most secretive of the passengers. Just as Claire's professional relationship with Eric -- despite her better judgment -- blossoms into a romance, the survivors begin to disappear mysteriously, one by one. Claire suspects that Eric may hold all the answers and becomes determined to uncover the truth, no matter the consequences.

[Explosion]

Hello.. hello?

Oh, hi.

Oh, I'm wide awake.

What's up?

Sources are telling us that

this decision was made...

in the last few minutes at the precaution

and there is no indication...

that this airplane crash was

anything other than an accident.

In any case, it is too soon to determine

whether the system malfunction...

was involved or whether human error was--

- Hello, my dear.

- Hi.

It's freezing.

Thank you for coming so quickly.

Of course.

Thank you.

They came down on a beach, near Pinewood.

Just a handful were left, out of 109.

You should handle the whole group.

Really?

No, you're gonna have to trust

my judgment on this one.

It's time to shake you out of this

comfort zone you're in.

I'm not in a comfort zone.

Two master's degrees, already?

Ph.D. that never ends?

That sounds pretty cozy to me.

Okay, that's the start, mostly,

it's nothing new.

One will require little more work,

though. He's euphoric.

He's feeling little

hmm... too good.

Uh...

Oh! I'm sorry--

Oh, excuse me, could you-- ?

(sigh)

Mr. Clark?

Come in!

Mr. Clark.

I'm Eric.

- Dr. Summers.

- Hi.

May I?

- Yeah.

- Thank you.

How are you feeling?

I feel great.

Mr. Clark, I'm a therapist.

I'm recommending that the passengers

meet with me in group sessions.

You are?

Well, no thanks.

Oh, okay. I understand.

If you'd feel more comfortable,

outside of the group environment...

we could meet one on one.

You make house calls?

Well, it's.. not.. protocol.. but.. hmm..

sometimes, under special circumstances.

What does one have to do to become

a "special circumstance" around here?

Survive a plane crash?

Uhmm..

You have a very lovely way about you.

Hmm?

I mean you're very formal,

but--

it's charming.

Is this your correct

contact information?

Okay.

So, umm..

Friday at five?

Tea time.

Good.

Is there anyone here for you?

- No.

- I can call someone if you.. want me to.

It's okay.

Feel better.

(Chuckling) You, too.

(Chuckling)

Claire.

Yes?

Do you have a sister?

Yes.

You should call her.

What?

Better now than later.

You could step out front of a bus

or something, and then what?

(Sighs)

(Knocking)

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Can I help you?

- Your laundry.

Oh, right, oh--

It was sitting in the dryer

for a while.

Oh, I'm sorry, I had an emergency

at work, and I had to run out.

Um, I've noticed that sometimes

you're too busy to pick up...

your newspapers, so I can take them

and hold them for you.

Oh, no, no, it's fine.

It's no bother.

Oh.. thank you.. but, you know what..

thank you, that's something...

I promised myself

not to let happen again.

- Okay, good night.

- Good night.

Claire?

That's right.

- Good night, Claire.

- Good night.

Anything you need,

you let me know.

Okay, thank you, bye.

(Sigh)

(Sigh)

[Phone dialing]

[Phone ringing]

Hi, you've reached Hannah, Luke,

Paul, and Emma. Leave us a message.

Hi.

It's me.

Just calling to say hi.

Yeah, bye.

[Explosion]

[Gasping]

[Dog barking]

I was at peace.

I always knew that I wouldn't live to

an old age so I just thought this is it.

I looked around.. and just felt such

a pity for everyone.. all that fear.

Dean...

when did you first realize

that something was wrong?

Uh.. we were still up pretty high, and...

plane was just cruising along,

and there was this sound...

the lights went up and there was a flash--

That's not what happened.

There were no explosions
