Hopefully this means we'll get some flashbacks on Grace and Olive.

I am really interested in seeing Cal and Ben's adventure and finding out about Cal's abilities.

After that sneak peek, I am writing off Grace. She does not care Ben is missing. She only cared about Cal. She cannot even care about Ben for her daughter who is over there crying for her Dad. Wow! I am off the Gracen working it out viewpoint unless she somehow makes up for it.

Maybe her anger was setting in that she mentioned. Seems a bit soon for that, though, and for Olive she should have cared, as you said.

This episode felt odd. The flashback and present day stories felt like two separate episodes. I think the flashbacks should have been presented before episode 5. Maybe, then I would have had a better understanding of why Jared, Olive and Grace have been acting as if the flight returning is a big inconvenience.

I feel that way too. Right now it seem like Grace want to have her cake and eat it too. Danny not going away. He's not even giving her time to figure out what it is that she want. Danny is using Olive as a excuse to stay close to Grace, and Grace must want him to because she's not exactly actually trying to get him to move on. I think Ben should move out so he can move on. However ,I also recognize that for Grace it has been five years, but for the people in the plane it was only yesterday.


I simply do not like Michaela's friend Lourdes , and I think it was a shifty thing that out of all the girls around Jared wound up marrying her best friend. If Lourdes was truly her best friend . I think Lourdes had a crush on Jared prior to Michaela's plane missing. It very obvious since she was the 3rd wheel. Most girls do not want to be the 3rd wheel . You can all be 3 best friends but it doesn't mean you can't date. So shouldn't she have been in a relationship of some sort?

My issues are not so much Grace and Danny as it relates to Ben. I mean I love Ben and would choose him in a heartbeat over Danny. But I can see that Danny was easier. But they are mourning this little family of 3 and acting like Ben and Cal are an inconvenience. At a minimum, they should have been overjoyed about Cal’s return. I get it had only been 10 days and they are maybe still in shock. I need to see some love for the returning Stones soon. Or at a minimum for Cal.

This episode has me more convinced, that Grace wants Danny and not Ben. I think she needs to be honest with herself, and make a decision. I see nothing wrong with Olive wanting a relationship with Danny too. There's no simple answers though.

i agree with you on this . she should not have dated her best friends fiance. let alone married him. that is so messed up.

it was nice to see the origin stories for everyone after the plane disappeared. how they all met and learned to move on. danny became a big part of olive life. i get how she wants him to stay in her life. but olive and grace both need to remember that to ben he has only been gone a day this is all very new and confusing to him.

Something struck me on a rewatch.

How easily Danny just dismissed Grace with his I found you after my wife died so I will be fine. Implying he will just find someone else. He seemed to just want a family and was more invested with Olive. If he loved her, it would be more I want you to be happy. You know the speech we got from Ben about not making them cut out Danny, after he has continually praised Grace for herself and told her she’s his everything.

We also got confirmation that things were tough between Grace and Ben due to Cal’s illness (understandable) and Danny was just a lot of fun.

I am not sure now where they are headed with this storyline. If Grace is going to realize her anger at Ben kept her from seeing how much she loves him. Or if she is going to go with the easier fun, less intense person who does not love her as much. I do think she does love both of them.

I actually found the flashbacks the least interesting part of the episode. Watching Ben chase Cal through the underground areas of New York until the came upon Thomas hiding was the best part. I got the feeling for the first time, that it is connected. Who knows what would have happened if Cal hadn't led Ben back to the stowaway. Grace has to stop cheating though. Which either means committing to her marriage or leaving Ben. I don't care which at this point.
