Final Destination 2

Question: Why does Alex die before Clear? Wasn't she supposed to be next after Carter? I mean, Alex was supposed to die first but Carter intervened making death repeat the cycle according to the path of the explosion which included Carter dying first, then Clear second and finally Alex. Why didn't this happen?

Chosen answer: His death happened between movies. We don't know how many times they intervened with each other before he finally was killed.

Answer: In the movie clear tells the others she and Alex saved each other countless times, however if you pause the movie and enlarge the scenes where it's flashing all the news paper articles it tells you that Alex was killed by a falling brick. I do believe Alex pushed clear out of the way of the brick.

Answer: Death works backwards now in this movie.

Question: In the dentist office scene, Tim almost chokes to death when the toy puffer fish falls into his mouth, but the nurse saves him by pulling it out. Nora should be next, but Tim gets crushed by the glass pane anyway. This is a major mistake on death's list.

Chosen answer: No it simply means that Tim was not supposed to die by the puffer fish. He was meant to be saved so that he could die later. The movie shows multiple instances where someone almost dies, but at the last second is saved. It's a common way to build suspense.

Question: It never shows the clues to Kat, Rory, or Eugine and Clear's deaths, can someone please tell me what they are?

Chosen answer: Eugene's death had no clues I know of, but Clear and Rory's did, Rory's clue was with Nora's. The trophy's shadow is segmented, giving it a divided look, Rory ends up divided to pieces by the barbed fence. As for Clear, Bludworth hints at it with his comment "such fire you have now".

Question: If all the characters in the two movies die in similar ways, how are the first two deaths related? (The strangling and the eye impaling.)

3

Answer: The deaths aren't related. What is meant by the fact that the characters in the 2 films dying in similar ways, means that all of them have an accident that should have killed them, but they survived. However death catches up with and eventually they all die, just like in the first film. That is the connection between the two films.

Question: Terry Chaney from the first final destination got "splattered" by a bus, her initials are T.C., and she was second on death's list, Tim Carpenter from the second final destination gets "splattered" by plate glass, his initials are T.C. and he was also second on death's list. Did the screenwriters do that on purpose or did that just a coincidence?

3

Answer: It was a coincidence, Since it would have to be the same for all of the other individuals on deaths list. But, if you watch both movies, the first person who dies in Final Destinations dies in a similair manner as the first person on deaths list in Final Destinations 2. It is like this for every other person, too.

2

Question: One trivia entry says "Look at the title Final Destination 2. Wouldn't that be kind of an oxymoron." What exactly does this mean?

3

Answer: If it's the "final" destination, then it is, by definition, the last one, so you couldn't have a second one after that.

Question: How did Thomas and Kimberly die?

Chosen answer: In the alternate ending of Final Destination 3, a newspaper blows by, revealing Kimberly and Burke ran into each other at a hardware store and a Camaro (belonging to Evan) ran through the store, knocking them into a nearby woodchipper. Kimberly's coat was tangled and was snatched into the machine. Burke attempted to save her, and both were dismembered.

How come Thomas didn't die first in the sequence of death? He was the first to be killed in the car wreck?

Death was working in reverse order. The last person to die in the premonition was the first person to die in the real world.

Question: Would it be safe to say that Death used the police officer to aid in Nora's death in the elevator? If he would not have called her and startled her, causing her to drop her phone, her hair would not have gotten caught on the old man's hook, and she would not have panicked. She would have casually walked out of the elevator.

2

Answer: It COULD be assumed yes. But there could have been another accident that would have caused Nora's hair to get caught in the hooks. Other then assuming that, Burke was part of death's plan to kill Nora.

Question: During the film Eugene grabs a gun and tries to Kill himself, this did not work as explained in the film it was not his time to die, So how could Kimberley kill herself as it was not her turn to die, due to the fact the officer saved her at the beginning putting her at the back of the queue to die, so the officer would need to die first for Kimberley to kill herself. Is this an oversight in the film or did I miss something?

1

Answer: Given that Death not only lets Kimberly die but actively helps her (by stopping the cop from getting to her in time), my best guess is that when Kimberly pulled him to the ground a few seconds earlier to avoid the gurney flying from the explosion, it was counted as her saving him and thus made him skip to the back of the queue.

Question: Why exactly is death working backwards in this movie? I don't really understand it.

1

Answer: Death is trying to erase the mistake "he" made. It's like knitting or something, if you make a mistake you have to start at the end and unwind the threads untill the mistake has gone. That is why death is working backwards, to tie up the loose ends.

Question: Eugene says that he was "saved" from transferring to another school because a student had come to school with a knife to kill his teacher, which would've been him if he hadn't transferred at all. This is obviously a reference to Alex when Billy had thought that he killed Mrs. Lewton with a knife, but not only was Alex innocent, her death happened at her own home. Since all of the other stories consist of everyone being somewhere at the exact same time when the original group died, this really doesn't make much sense at all. Am I missing something or did I hear Eugene wrong?

Answer: Eugene was substituting for Valerie Lewton at Mt. Abraham High School when he learned that one of his students at his original school brought a knife to class and killed his substitute teacher.

2

Question: If Kimberly and the officer created new life by bringing Kimberly back to life, why did the newspaper say they still end up dying at the ending of Final Destination 3?

Answer: As far as I am aware, that is only on the special feature version on DVD and not necessarily canon. I'm also sure they don't need to be on the list to die. They could end up dying for some reason that doesn't involve Death's actions. Like Ian said in this film "People just die."

Question: Does anyone know why there is no song in this movie, the one that plays before someone dies?

Answer: There is, Highway to hell by ACDC.

Question: Just wondering, what is the Stephen King book that the teenage boy is reading?

Question: When Tom explains himself about cheating death within connection with Billy Hitchcock, how does this all work out?

Answer: Tom was called out to view the scene of Billy's death. This meant that he avoided the shoot-out that killed his partner, and that should have killed him too.

Question: How did Alex, from the first Final Destination die? Please explain in some detail.

Answer: Few details are given - Clear says that he became a recluse while she looked after him, she being safe until he died or escaped Death again. Alex left the house (for some unknown reason) for the first time in months, a brick fell on him and he was killed.

Question: Why did the nurse drown Kimberly in her dream? What connection do the baby, nurse and Kimberly have?

Answer: Dr Kallarjian (I think that's the correct spelling) looks as though she is attempting to murder Kimberly in her premonition. Kimberly herself says a nurse was trying to choke her. As we later see, the medical professional is just trying to resuscitate Kimberly, she just has a bizarre look on her face, like she wants to murder Kimberly. As to your second question, only new life (Isabella's baby) can defeat death.

Question: In the movies FD1 and FD3 there is a "theme song" which plays before someone dies (Rocky Mountain High FD1, Turn Around Look at Me FD3), is there any reason why there is no song for this movie?

Answer: Eather it was written without the theatrics or it could have easily been the editor's/director's choice in order to keep the suspence going without giving anything away.

Question: Was the whole pileup because death tried to kill the survivors of the pileup? I mean he tried to fix their earlier survival due to the survivors of flight 180. I don't get the whole relation of the survivors of the pileup to the survivors of flight 180.

Answer: There is a scene later on where several of the characters realise they were 'supposed to die' in the first film but were spared because Death tied up the loose ends from the people who got off 180. They are loosely linked to the survivors of the first film, yes. Death is catching up in this film by causing the pile up, but because of the girls premonition, they basically cheated death twice.

Question: When Kimberly's friends died first in her vision she and her friends died last, but why were they killed before everyone in reality?

Answer: I'm not sure of a very logical explanation for this, but it should be noted that the premonitions in the films are not 100% accurate as the accidents are not caused by Death itself and may not be based on reality. They are just premonitions that the characters have of an impending accident that happens due to some unfortunate circumstances such as malfunction or improper precautions. In short, It is merely Death's job to clean up those who manage to cheat death in these misfortunes. He plays no part in causing the accident itself.

Continuity mistake: When Evan comes into the flat and walks towards the window, pay attention to the sink, there is a red cup or something in it. However when his arm gets stuck in it, there is nothing red in the sink, and there was no time for him to take anything out of the sink.

Clear Rivers: Look, we drove a long way to get here, so if you happen to know how to stop Death, it would be really great if you told us.
William Bludworth: You can't cheat Death. There are no escapes.
Clear Rivers: Bullshit! You told me Death has a distinct design. But Alex and I cheated Death, not once but dozens of times. The design is flawed, it can be beaten.
William Bludworth: Such fire in you now. People are always most alive just before they die. Don't you think?
