The brawl spills out of the jetway. The captain yells that none of them can get back on the plane. Sassy begs him to reconsider; she has forty students on the plane and both chaperones out in the waiting area. The captain relents, but only one of the teachers can get back on. Sassy talks the French teacher into going ahead of her, since he, uh, knows French. Hitchcock begs to be let on: "But I didn't fight with anyone!" No dice.
Kerr, wearing a tight white t-shirt, watches the plane back away from the gate and broods. Candies nestles against him. Fuck off, Candies. Sassy asks Alex what happened. Alex says he saw everything, it felt real, blah. Kerr yells at him. Rothbale and Sassy wax skeptical. Kerr mocks Alex. Alex lunges at Kerr. They tussle. The cops come over. Hitchcock watches the plane and mumbles, "There they go, here we stay." Thanks, Hitchcock, but I think we get it. A wide-angle shot of Alex and Kerr on the floor, the cops holding them down, and then a giant fireball blossoms on the left-hand side of the screen. The windows shatter. Sirens immediately start up (yeah, right). Kerr glares at Alex. Alex is sweaty and has blubbery, unattractive lips. Sassy starts to cry. Candies pants because her capris don't fit correctly and she can't breathe. Brown Ali shows her top teeth to indicate "horrified."
A clock, ticking. The survivors, waiting. The others, glaring all weirded-out at Alex. Alex didn't "cause this." Sassy asks, "Are there any survivors?" How should Alex know? "He's not a witch," Brown Ali sulks at Sassy. An NTSB guy comes in and makes with the vague. Then the FBI guys -- one of whom is one of Gerard's henchpeople from the film version of The Fugitive -- step forward to announce that they need to question the survivors.
