In the first two episodes, titled ‘Final Call’ and ‘3 Degrees,’ the story unfolds with unexpected twists and turns. Let’s recap the key events and unravel the thrilling ending. Hijack Episodes 1 and 2 ends are all explained.
Episode 1: ‘Final Call’
As the flight departs, Sam Nelson boards the plane while communicating with his ex-wife, Marsha. A young girl discovers a bullet in the restroom and hands it to an older man, who shares it with Stuart, the hijackers’ leader.
Realizing their plan is compromised, they decide not to wait for three hours and reveal their intentions to the passengers and crew. Sam notices a group of individuals with identical bags, raising his suspicions. Ultimately, the hijackers take control of the cockpit, forcing Captain Robin Allen to open the door to protect his lover, Colette.
Episode 2: ‘3 Degrees’
Sam aims to gain Stuart’s trust as a negotiator and suggests removing Captain Robin from the cockpit. Marsha investigates the situation with her colleague Zahra Gahfoor, a counter-terrorism officer. Zahra finds no evidence of a real threat on Flight KA29.
Meanwhile, Sam hatches a plan to use Captain Robin to inform the authorities of the hijacking. By tricking Stuart into removing Robin from the cockpit, Sam communicates with him covertly. When the flight enters Iraqi airspace, Robin deviates the plane by 3° as a signal of danger.
The Ending: A Message in the Skies
The ground becomes aware of the hijacking when English airline official Alice Sinclair questions the 3° deviation in Flight KA29‘s course. As the deviation occurs in a straight line, weather-related causes are ruled out, leading Alice to suspect a hidden message.
Sam’s plan to inform the ground succeeds as his wise use of Captain Robin tricks Stuart into unknowingly sending a distress signal through the flight’s altered course.
