Cassie succumbs to psychological torment where she is seen talking to a very much dead Alex who seems to live in her mind
Spoilers for 'The Flight Attendant'
Episodes 4 and 5 of HBO Max's murder mystery premiered on Thursday, December 3, 2020, and right now we have no idea if Max (Deniz Akdeniz) is dead or alive. The upcoming Episodes, 6 'After Dark' and 7 'Hitchcock Double' will premiere on December 10, 2020, as per the original schedule, at 3 am EST.
There are many questions to be answered beside Max's fate - Who is Miranda Croft (Michelle Gomez), will Cassie Bowden (Kaley Cuoco) find out her identity? Was Alex Sokolov (Michiel Huisman) killed because he was a bad guy, or did he actually do nothing wrong? Is Cassie still on her drunk trip or are her ideas on a secret organization true? Also, what is up with Megan Briscoe (Rosie Perez)?
Meanwhile, per Episode 6's promo, we see a very fragile Cassie succumb to psychological torment where she is seen talking to a very much dead Alex who seems to live in her mind. "I am not always going to think about you!" she yells at him as she tries to leave the room only to end up at a closed wall. "I do not want to be in this room, I am leaving," she says. Alex tells her, "We just got to talk this through like rational adults, you're in denial!" We're also shown scenes of Cassie trying to resuscitate Alex, followed by Annie Mouradian (Zosia Mamet) saying, "I'm done" - could Annie give up on her best friend after Cassie got her boyfriend hurt? The background that Annie seems to be in, is a hospital - so we're hoping Max survives.
We also see images of Cassie getting her mugshot and looking bug-eyed in jail with Alex in her mind telling her that her life is in real danger. "You can't run away from me, I'm in your head, it's just me and the mess!" The entire promo sees Cassie losing her mind with glimpses of her childhood, Alex's ghost, her urges to drink, and her hunt to find the truth about Alex's death all clouding her judgment.
Our speculations based on the promo would be that since Cassie's mental health continues to go down the drain and her buried memories of her childhood start to surface, she might not only end up making bigger mistakes than she already has but may also end up in trouble. We're definitely expecting her to have an argument with Annie, we can't imagine Annie would be okay with Cassie putting Max in danger. On another secondary character note, Megan's lies might finally catch up to her.
