He gets some help from Arthur in this matter. Martin is also concerned about the news that Jake feels pain until the issue with each of these numbers is resolved. Regardless, Jake is able to provide Martin with another number, this one scribbled on a piece of paper with the picture of a dragon. At an accident scene where a woman is hit by a vehicle, Martin runs across a seemingly homeless and off kilter man calling himself the Invisible Prince.

Nature doesn't care. If a species wants to survive, it has to prove it deserves to.

Flight attendant subplot far more interesting than rest of show
24 March 2012 | by TownlanderSee all my reviews

What is the story about the flight attendant? She was easily the liveliest, most appealing and most interesting character in the show, not to mention that she's a girl-next-door stunner. Who was that actress? None of the cast photos on IMDb look like her, and the Fox website's sampling of photos and clips from the show ignore her and that whole subplot. My theory: the producers saw the final cut and realized they had a big problem: a minor character was far more compelling than their stars, so they had to bury information about her!

The story itself was interesting, but only in a this-is-so-dumb-that-I'm-wasting-my-time- on-this sort of way. The boy, though cute, was as intriguing as drying paint. The supposed pattern of numbers made no sense whatsoever. (Does it even matter to today's crop of writers, who graduated from an American K-16 education devoid of serious content?) The stereotypes were galling: the awkward Foreign Man, the Russian Mafioso, the social worker with boundless empathy, and -- worst of all -- the "magic Negro", a painful trope as marinated in racism as the Noble Savage of years ago.

BUT -- just who was that flight attendant!
