The Murder Mystery in ‘The Flight Attendant’ is Going to be a lot of Fun

Cassie keeps going back to that hotel with the dead man talking to her, guilting her for not doing the right thing. But what is the right thing? Would I have called the cops if I was in that same situation? I want to say yes, but it’s something I hope I will never have to find out.

The Flight Attendant‘s premiere episode did not disappoint. It sucks you into the murder mystery. Kaley Cuoco is amazing. She really makes you feel what Cassie is going through. She’s terrified she’ll get caught. Confused about what happened and sad that a man she spent a lovely evening with is dead. Cassie is seriously going out of her mind, and I think I’d be doing the same thing if I was in her situation.

We meet Cassie in a montage of flights and nights of parting in various cities. She lives the good life. Even when she’s back in NYC, she still has an incredible night out. Unfortunately, she doesn’t remember it, and even though she slept on the subway, there’s a man in her bed when she gets home. Maybe she’s having too good of a time.

On what seems like a routine trip to Bangkok, a first-class passenger is seriously flirting with her. She flirts back. He asks her out for dinner, and while she shouldn’t accept, she does anyway.

We get to see flashes of her fabulous night out before she wakes up with Alex’s (Michiel Huisman) dead body next to her, his throat slashed, and a lot of blood.

The biggest problem is Cassie blacked out again. She thinks she might be able to get away with it, but she’s going to have to put the pieces back together to save herself.

Maybe a lesson to all of us is not to drink too much. But how she manages to go right back to work after all those blackout nights, I will never know.

The Flight Attendant is definitely intense, but a different kind of intense than watching the doctors of Grey’s Anatomy tackle Covid. It’s a very entertaining intensity. I can’t wait to find out what happened. How did someone get in the hotel room and slit his throat when she was in there too? Did she see what happened, or did she sleep through the entire thing?

I think it will be quite fun to have the dead guy be her guide to putting the pieces back together.

I read there are some funny bits in this show, and maybe some people found Cassie going a bit insane funny, but for me, it was oh sh*t how is she going to put this behind her and not be charged for murder? I would be going out of my mind too.

Thank you to HBO Max for dropping the premiere early. More episodes drop on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 26.

If you haven’t watched it yet, I highly recommend it.
