Johnny, Kelly, and the captain return to the cockpit. Man, they'll just let anyone up there now. The co-pilot asks if everything has been straightened out, and the captain says he made a deal to return. Johnny's going to tell them exactly what he saw, because he believes that they will "respond to some emergency condition in seven minutes by taking the plane into a rapid descent." Johnny tells the pilot that he pushed the throttles all the way forward, the right engine exploded, and the cabin depressurized. The co-pilot says that it's impossible, because they never go to max power, and even if they did, the engine wouldn't explode. The captain says that if they stalled, they would go to max power. The co-pilot says that it could be an oil problem in the engine. Johnny asks to touch the throttles, and the captain tells him to touch but not move. Johnny touches the throttles, and then moves his hand over the instrument panel, but nothing happens. He sees an air vent, and reaches for it. He goes into a quick vision of the wing. Johnny asks where that air comes from, and the captain says that it comes through the engines.
Johnny carefully puts both hands on the air vent. He goes into a vision of himself, standing on the wing. He kneels down and touches the wing. At first, I thought it was really dirty, because it's all streaked, but it turns out that it's supposed to be ice. Johnny snaps out of his vision and tells the captain that there is a lot of ice on the wing. The captain checks his displays and says that the wings are clear and the anti-icing is on. Johnny says it's not working on the right side, and the instruments are wrong. The captain say that instruments don't lie, and that what Johnny's describing is improbable because in fifteen years, he's never had trouble with the systems. Johnny asks how ice on the wing would affect the flight. The captain says it depends on how bad it is, but that they would have difficulty maintaining lift and the plane could stall. Johnny asks how he'd fix it. The captain and co-pilot share a look and the captain admits that he'd go to max power on both engines. The captain and co-pilot look at each other again.
Back in the cabin, the plane is still bouncing around a bit. Purdy checks his watch. Another dude -- who looks like a stereotypical college professor, so I'm going to call him Prof -- is asleep. Larraine gets on the intercom and makes the landing announcement. The turbulence continues, and a glass falls off a tray table. Nicole walks forward to clean it up as the turbulence gets worse.
