The Flight Attendant Season 2 Episode 5 sees the downfall of Cassie and comes to reveal a big secret about her sobriety. Since the very first time Cassie saw a doppelganger of hers wreaking havoc in Berlin, she has been trying to solve this mess on her own. Rather than relying on the CIA. But recently, on the show, after the death of two CIA analysts and two people invading her house, Cassie came to realize that she was dealing with something far more dangerous.
Cassie walked up to the CIA Office to meet Benjamin, but he himself was broken down after losing his two people. Cassie felt the state he was in, which resulted in them sleeping together. But the moment Cassie woke up the next day, she came to find out that the CIA might not be the right place to come to after all. So here is what went down.
The Flight Attendant S02E05 Recap
The Flight Attendant Season 2 Episode 5 opens up with Cassie waking up next to Benjamin after sleeping with him last night. She spots a file containing the psych evaluation of Cassie, which shocks her as she believes it’s not hers. There is some evidence. There are her photos which also include a photo of a red glove she lost which was found by the CIA at Echo Park. Cassie quickly decides to call Shane, and she lets him know what’s going on.
Cassie shows the files to Max and Annie and believes that the CIA might be behind this whole mess. Right at the moment, she was about to leave for the training day, Marco showed up at the door. Marco questions where Cassie has been all along. Soon Cassie slips and reveals that she slept with someone else.
Things continue to go down for Cassie as she finds out that Megan ran away from Brenda. On top of that, at the training, Cassie finds herself teaming with Shane but also black-market Carol. Cassie tries to brief everything to Shane, who promises to look into it. But she saw herself panicking, which resulted in her throwing frustrations at Carol.
Cassie tries to find multiple ways to calm herself down but eventually turns to buy a drink. She comes back home to find Marco’s note that he will come and pick his things up the next day. The note messes her up further, which leads her to call Shane, and she almost ends up revealing their secret jobs to her boyfriend. Cassie also opts to call Dot. Earlier in the episode, Dot asked her to call if she ever needed help. But Dot doesn’t answer the phone.
Towards the end of the episode, Brenda comforts Cassie at a beach. Cassie confesses that she didn’t complete a year of sobriety. She, in fact, slipped on March 21 and March 23 in New York. She decided to lie her way out to complete a year after moving to L.A. Amidst all of this, Max and Anne located Esteban and Gabrielle’s house to retrieve the Viewmaster 3D and their stuff, while Megan retrieved her locker with the help of Cherry.
The Flight Attendant Season 2 Episode 5 Review
As The Flight Attendant Season 2 began its one episode per week schedule, the fifth episode that starts it all doesn’t live up to the tension that was built in previous episodes. Since the very beginning of the season, the show has thrown mysteries after mysteries at Cassie. Although they haven’t got any big developments so far, they were still fun to follow.
But Episode 5 over here kills all the fun of tension that The Flight Attendant Season 2 built. The fifth episode is an easily skippable one as it sees the downfall of Cassie. Plus how she manages to destroy her own life. The only big reveal for this episode would be the fact that she lied about being sober for a year.
Apart from Cassie destroying herself, the episode could have been more fun if Max and Anne’s arc or Megan’s arc had gotten more screen time. Max and Anne have turned out to be fun add-ons helping Cassie with the CIA stuff. Their adventure at Esteban and Gabrielle’s could have been more fun rather than being a quick retrieval mission.
