List of Final Destination characters

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Final Destination is an American horror franchise consisting of five feature films. There have also been ten novels, and two comic books composed of six issues in total. Each medium features a protagonist who experiences a premonition of himself/herself and several others dying in a catastrophic accident, only to escape the event with a handful of other characters moments before it turns into a reality. The survivors die later on through a series of elaborate and often gory scenarios that frequently resemble Rube Goldberg machines in their complexity.

Despite depicting homicide, the series is noteworthy amongst others in the horror genre in that the "villain" of the films is not the stereotypical slasher or beast, but the entity Death itself (occasionally seen as a fleeting shadow or a gust of wind) which manipulates the environment in deadly ways with the intent of reclaiming the lives of the survivors.

As of Final Destination 5, there are 506 known deaths in the films, 183 known in the novels, and 754 known in the comic books. Counted deaths only include those who perished in the protagonist's initial premonition and those who died along the survivors. Characters are listed in alphabetical order, and are arranged by chronological appearance. Unnecessary characters are excluded, for example, those who do not affect the story heavily.

When he panics he is thrown off the plane, along with six others, who witness the plane explode moments later. Over the next several months the survivors begin to die one by one in a series of bizarre accidents, and after learning that Death is still after them, Alex attempts to find a way to cheat Death's plan. Six months later, Alex, Clear Rivers and Carter Horton travel to Paris, believing that they have finally "cheated" death, but their efforts prove futile when Carter is suddenly killed by a large neon sign.

He heats up some noodles in the microwave, unaware that a refrigerator magnet has fallen in, while he pan-fries mozzarella sticks. While listening to his voicemail and trying on his new jewelry, his microwave begins to spark, startling him and causing him to drop his ring down the sink. When he reaches into the drain, his watch causes his wrist to get stuck. The stove begins to flare, and he attempts to put out the fire with his shirt, causing the pan to fall, and setting his entire apartment on fire. He finally frees his hand and tries to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher, but it stalls. Desperate, Evan smashes the windows, escaping seconds before his apartment explodes.

Rory was a heavy drug user. Prior to the film, he traveled to Paris, where he witnessed Carter Horton's death. Horrified by what he had seen, he decided to go home instead of attending a theater that later collapse on the guests.[4][10] In the film, Kimberly Corman has a premonition of a massive pile-up on Route 23, in which a garbage truck rams into Rory's car. After Kimberly prevents him from entering the highway, he and the other survivors are brought to the police station for questioning, and he dismisses Kimberly's theory that death may still be after them. Nonetheless, he attends a group meeting at Thomas Burke's apartment. When the group leaves to find Isabella Hudson in Kat Jennings' SUV, the vehicle swerves onto a nearby farm, and the car is penetrated by PVC pipes. While there, Rory pulls Brian Gibbons out of the path of a speeding news van, unintentionally adding him to Death's List, and asks Kimberly to hide his addictions from his mother if he dies. After Kat is killed, she drops a cigarette into a fuel leakage from the news van, and the van explodes, sending a barbed wire fence flying through the air, which trisected Rory.[4]

Rory's death is seen in x-ray format in the opening credits of The Final Destination, and he is seen again in a montage at the end of Final Destination 5. [11][12][13][14][15]

Kimberly prevents him and several others from entering the highway, and the survivors are brought to the police station for questioning. Thomas is the only one to consider Kimberly's theory that Death may still after them. After Evan Lewis's death, he and Kimberly attempt to save the remaining survivors, with the help of Flight 180 survivor Clear Rivers. She brings them to William Bludworth, who asserts that only "new life" can defeat Death. This leads them to believe that if Isabella Hudson had her baby it would ruin Death's plan, and they would all be safe. Thomas falsely accuses Isabella of grand theft, and she is incarcerated. After the death of several other survivors, Isabella goes into labor, and Thomas, Kimberly, and Clear rush to the hospital, where they witness Isabella give birth. They believe they have finally cheated death until Kimberly realizes that Isabella was never on Death's list. Kimberly sacrifices herself for Thomas's sake, and after he saves her, she is resuscitated by Dr. Ellen Kalarjian, thus granting her "new life". Since Kimberly has been granted new life, Thomas is no longer on Death's list.

In Final Destination 3, a newspaper article reveals that Thomas and Kimberly were killed after being knocked into a wood chipper at a hardware store, however, this is only mentioned in an alternate ending. Thomas is seen again in a montage at the end of Final Destination 5.

Kimberly stalls her car on the entrance ramp, preventing them from entering the highway, and he and the other survivors are later brought to the police station for questioning.
