Final Destination 5

Question: Bludworth states that he's, "Seen this before" referring to Death's Design. If the bridge incident takes place before Flight 180, and is the first, then how would he have seen it before? And why is the bridge incident not mentioned in the first film if it took place only two weeks earlier?

Chosen answer: To answer your first question, Bludworth does in fact mention he has "seen this before", but this means he could have seen these events before the film series ever took place. It is possible that this is where he had learned a lot about death's design. This could even hint at another sequel/prequel. To answer your second question, none of the survivors had been alive to tell the tale of what happened to the survivors of the bridge collapse. In the first few movies, it is noted that the protagonist freaks out, thus, startling MANY people. In the 5th film, Sam is only seen freaking out inside the bus. Even if the FBI have the information, they could have finished the investigation completely, due to Sam, Molly, and Nathan surviving (Until the end of the movie, that is).

Question: At the beginning when Sam is having his premonition and he saves Molly, why does she die in the plane crash at the end? And why did Sam die similar to the guy in the first "Final destination" movie? It couldn't have been him cause Sam and Molly witness him being removed from the plane before they took off.

Chosen answer: To answer your second question, Sam's death is not like any other death's from the first final destination movie. If you are talking about Alex, he was hit by a falling brick off-screen. To answer your first question, near the end, Peter though that Candice had deserved to live more then Molly, and attempts to kill her. Sam kills Peter before he has a chance to stab molly. The gun dropped by peter lands on the stove, and shoots off in the air. This is a sign that Sam saved Molly from dying, thus, putting her on Death's list, and making it all right to kill her on Flight 180.

This is in response to the answer. Your answer is dismissive to the nuance of premonition as depicted by the movie. This is extremely crucial: Premonition, as visioned by every protagonist, is the event that would have happened if the protagonist didn't intervene. Every events in premonition is supposed to be absolutely true. As such, in the premonition, Sam saves Molly. This means if the events weren't intervened by Sam, he would still have saved Molly, while the rest (Sam, Candice, Peter) would have died anyway. So Molly should be safe all along. It wouldn't even be wrong to say that 'death' hadn't even planned to kill Molly at the bridge. So your point about Molly being next in the list because Sam killed peter and death skipping Sam now to go on Molly isn't even valid. So if Molly was clean in death's perspectives all along, why did she die at the end? (because she didn't cheat the design, she wasn't even supposed to be in the list of death's order; as I mentioned earlier, it was never the intention of death to kill Molly as evidenced by the saving of Molly in Sam's premonition).

How did we see Sam and Molly on flight 180 if it's final destination 5.

But Molly didn't die in his vision so she wasn't on the list to begin with so how can he skip someone's death that's not on the list and he kill his friend so why did he still die on the plane with Molly?.

Question: Why weren't there hints to the characters deaths like in the other movies? Is it because this was a prequel to the first one? Just wondering.

Chosen answer: There are hints in the movie. It's just you didn't see it. For example: Olivia's fridge had magnets that spelled "HEYE" the "H" then falls off to say "EYE". There more hints but this is just an example.

The example that the previous person is actually talking about Evan Lewis' death from Final Destination 2. For Candice's death her rubber band snaps, indicating the fact that her spine snaps. For Isaac's death when he is going through the desk and finds the coupon he pricks his finger on a thumbtack indicating the acupuncture aspect of his death. And with Olivia's death her picture frame from her time at the Devil's Flight Roller coaster it shatters over her right eye, the same one that pops out when she falls.

Question: Is this a prequel? The end confused me. How can part 5 characters be on flight 180 from part 1?

Question: Why does Peter try to kill Molly and Sam at the end when he already took the life of agent Block and is safe from Death?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: He was jealous that Molly was still alive and Candice was dead.

Answer: I think that by this point Peter is too far gone to be thinking rationally or to be reasoned with. And as he says himself Molly witnessed the murdered of a federal agent, so she's got to die. And maybe Peter was just making damn sure that he was safe from Death. I mean, he's already murdered one innocent human being, so what's two more?

Question: Throughout the whole film series, how is it that Bludsworth knows how to cheat Death and if the main characters are supposed to die, then why does he tell them how to do it?

Answer: Bludsworth's backstory has never been addressed in the series. He seems to have an intimate understanding of the supernatural nature of death but how he knows this is never explained. Why he gives the characters advice is also never explained, however he seems to be legitimately interested in whether or not the characters will succeed in cheating death because it seems to be impossible.

Question: Sam killed Peter at the end, so he got his life and he became safe. So how did he die on the plane?

Answer: In order to be "safe" you have to kill someone who didn't cheat death. Peter was one of the people who were supposed to die in the bridge collapse so killing him granted Sam nothing.

BaconIsMyBFF

This is in response to the answer. You mention that, to be safe, one has to kill someone who didn't cheat death. Peter was supposed to die in bridge collapse. Sam killed peter. So no gains for Sam. But you missed one point: Prior to being killed, Peter kills Agent block (someone who didn't cheat death) transferring agent's life on Peter. So Peter's life now in the judgment of 'death' should be effectively of someone who didn't cheat death. By extension, if Sam now kills Peter (who can now be deduced to be a clean soul from death's perspectives), Sam should get life of Peter, a person whose slate should be clean in the eyes of death. Why did Sam still die then?

But by killing the cop, Peter had already paid off his debt to death. Then by killing Peter, Sam should have become safe.
