TodClue FD1

A clue indicating Tod Waggner's imminent death.

How do we know that just by sitting here-by, by sipping this coffee, or breathing the air, or even crossing the intersection that we haven't even started, in motion, the events that will some day lead to our deaths: forty years from now, ten years from now, tomorrow. We don't. Unless we open ourselves up to the signs that it's willing to show us.

Alex Browning.

Shortly before Death preys on a victim, certain "clues" or "signs" as to how, where and when they will die can appear. These clues could range from small, hardly noticable items to instances of unusual natural phenomena. Though most are oblivious, a few (particularly visionaries) are have noticed these occurrences and have attempted to alter Death's design. Below is a list of clues for every character's death in the order in which they were made throughout the entire film series.

THE DEATHS IN ORDER WITH THEIR CLUES

Final Destination movie

  • When Tod plugs in his radio, the song that plays is "Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver, who died in a plane crash.
  • Tod sees a shadow (Death) in his bathroom.
  • Right before his death, Alex picks up a shred of a magazine that reads Tod. (Pictured above)
  • Coincidentally, the word 'Tod' means 'Death' in German.

Billy Hitchcock

5y454y

Billy Hitchcock

  • After taking a driver's test and barely passing, the instructor says, "Young man, you're gonna die at a very young age." But this means he will die while driving a car.
  • Billy almost had his head crushed after he fell of his bicycle (due to Carter's reckless driving) and another car nearly ran him over.
  • When Carter is driving to "take control" the reflection of the train Alex sees out his window has the number 747, which is the type of plane that 180 was.
  • Billy died out of order; he was supposed to die after Carter, but Alex intervened. Death wasted no time sparing Billy.
  • During the opening credits, there is a guillotine.
  • While he is looking up at the plane taking off, the reflection of the plane is shown across his face. It is flying in a line right where the piece of the car decapitates him later on.

Alex Browning

  • After Terry's death, blood sprays on Alex's face. One of the blood stains looks like a 7. Alex is seventh on Death's List.
    • At the end of the movie, a man is singing "Rocky Mountain High" in French.
    • At the end of the movie, wine spills over Alex's drawing of the Flight 180 seats. The stain looks like blood and it's over Alex's seat.
    • Alex almost died seven times. He was almost run over by a train, nearly electrocuted saving Clear, nearly killed in an explosion, nearly impaled in the face by blunt branches, almost drowns when a tree falls on him, almost run over by a bus, and was almost crushed by a sign. This is the same number in the order he was supposed to die.
    • During Final Destination 2, Clear mentions she and Alex cheated death dozens of times after the events of the first film, so it means that Death kept switching between the two until it finally got Alex, as he quoted "You can't evade Death forever."
    • Alex died 3 months after Carter's Death. A brick impaled him in the eye.
    • Alex died on the same day as his birthday September 25th.
    • At the bottom of Alex's house, the walls had many bricks.

  • Nora told Kim that, after her husband and son died, she was okay with accepting death.
  • Nora told Kim she had a funeral to plan.
  • The elevator that got Rory's shoe stuck in between the doors was the same elevator that got Nora's head stuck.

  • Clear and Kat did not realize they are making it worse as Eugene and the man are also pulling her head up when they were pulling her body down.

Kat Jennings

    003FD2 Keegan Connor Tracy 010

    Kat Jennings

  • The location of Kat's car wreck is at the 180 Mile Marker.
  • Before the incident, another pipe was shown and gas was running through it. The gas looked a lot like blood.
  • The crash appears way too accurate for Kat to do on her own, so Death might also be controlling the car.

Rory Peters

  • A strong gust of wind blows Kat's cigarette into the pipe, indicating Death's presence.
    003FD2 Jonathan Cherry 005

    Rory Peters

  • Before Nora Carpenter's death, Rory saw a shadow of a man carrying hooks, but the shadow was between the coat hangers' shadows, making it look like it was cut in pieces.
  • When the group looks for Isabella Hudson, the landscape around the road has plenty of fences visible.
  • Rory mentions that he would stop doing drugs if he was to be killed, and the reason why he was cut to pieces was because he stopped to use drugs.

Clear Rivers

  • Clear's seat in Flight 180 is 23, referencing the Route 23 Pileup.
  • Kimberly told Clear, "In my opinion, you're already dead."
  • Every time Clear was nearly killed (and finally killed), it always had something to do with explosions:
    • The mortician tells Clear that she has such a fire in her.
    • Clear previously hit a teen for smoking at a gas station.
    • When Alex is using a cigarette lighter, there's a spark. The spark looks like lightning.
    • Clear saw someone drop a tank of propane.
    • In the opening credits of Final Destination 2, there's a mask with black ink on its face. It's like it was burned, implicating Clear Rivers' death in which it shows how her skin was burnt.
    • After Flight 180 blows up, behind Clear was an orange and red picture which might have echoed the explosion.
      148816 101500259921554 1030676 n

      Clear Rivers

    • Clear was originally supposed to die from an explosion while on board Flight 180, and from an explosion in her car, if it weren't for the intervention of Alex.
    • She is also nearly killed while in Burke's apartment when a canoeing boat falls and nearly impales her.
  • During Kimberly's premonition at the hostpital, she sees a brief glimpse of Dr. Kalarjian pushing a crash cart through a glowing orange hallway.  Unfortuantely, she does not pick up on this quickly enough to warn Clear.
  • Just before Clear starts walking toward Eugene's hospital room, a sign on the wall behind her reads "FIRE EXTINGUISHER".  Her head is blocking the word "extinguisher", so the word "FIRE" appears directly above her head.
  • She's one of the many people who appear in the opening credits of The Final Destination
  • In the alternate ending of Final Destination, Alex saves Clear from the wire that was meant to explode the car she was in, and instead from being electrocuted and passed out, he was caught on fire, and died. Since he was killed despite the design he was supposed to die in, they defeated death, leaving Carter and her to live the rest of their lives. A while later, she was revealed pregnant, and successfully delivered her child. The newborn boy had a small collar, written "Alex Browning" meaning Alex is the supposed father of the child. She then brings her baby to the memorial in which she meets Carter, and both of them payed their recognitions to Alex. '
  • In some version of the film, the coloration of her death scene is warm. (Red, orange and yellow).
  • Clear's full name appears in The Final Destination in a sign that reads "Clear Rivers Water's".

Eugene Dix

  • Eugene tried to kill himself via handgun, but all six bullets were duds. Clear confirmed that it wasn't his time to die.
  • During Kimberly's premonition at the hospital, she sees a brief glimpse of Dr.

    Eugene Dix

     Kalarjian pushing a crash cart through a glowing orange hallway.

    526078-brian gibbons1 large

    Brian Gibbons

  • Brian almost died when he was nearly run over by a news van, but Rory saved him. Even though he had nothing to do with Route 23 or Flight 180, he was immediately added to Death's list after his death was skipped.
  • In some versions of the film, the coloration of this scene is warm.(red, orange and yellow)

Thomas Burke

  • Thomas may have been meant to die with Clear and Eugene in the explosion at the hospital.
    • When Thomas and Clear ask Kimberly to recall her premonition of the white van, Kimbery sees a brief glimpse of Dr. Kalarjian pushing a crash cart with an ECG machine through a glowing orange hallway (the same hallway where they are standing), which wasn't part of her earlier premonitions.  She does not pick up on this at first, but Thomas asks her, "You saw an ECG Machine and what else?  What else did you see?"  Kimberly begins to realize that something is wrong and stops Thomas from going closer to Eugene's room.  Unfortunately, she does does not fully deduce what will happen in time to warn Clear.  It turns out that Kimberly stopped Thomas just short of the fireball's reach.
    • Kimbery pulls Thomas to the ground as a flaming metal shelf flies toward them.  If she had not intervened, Thomas would have been hit by the shelf.
  • At the top of the page of the newspaper, there is a heading that says "COST OF COMMUTING | B2-3" which could possibly be referencing the Route 23 pile-up.
    • The car started the chain reaction used to be owned by Evan Lewis.
    • The woodchipper that sucked Thomas and Kimberly in is owned by Brian Gibbons' father.
    • Thomas and Kimberly's death certificates were signed by Doctor Ellen Kalarjian.

    Final Destination 3

  • After Ashley wins at the water gun booth, her prize is an inflatable palm tree, which represents the potted palm, which knocked over the loose shelf, that locks the tanning beds, trapping Ashley & Ashlyn. *Ashley and Ashlyn listen to "Love Rollercoaster" before the beds burn.
  • It is ironic due to the fact that the word "ash" is in their names.
  • When Wendy is in her room, her lamp's light bursts.
    Rtrtyty

    Ashlyn Halperin

  • In a less painful and time consuming death, Ashley and Ashlyn are electrocuted in a deleted scene. Ashlyn decides that the bed is too hot and gets out, only to get whacked in the head by the wood and knocked out. As Ashley burns, Ashlyn lays on the floor next to the bed, unconscious. After gaining consciousness, Ashlyn stands up and removes the wood and opens the bed. She reaches for Ashley's hand, but when she grabs her hand, the bed breaks, sending Ashley into the wiring below and, instead of a fire igniting, Ashley is electrocuted by the current. Because she is still holding Ashley, Ashlyn gets shocked as well and dies.
  • Before getting into the tanning bed , Ashlyn turns up the heating in the room, stating that "A few degrees won't hurt." which in fact was the cause of each of their deaths.
  • During Ashley and Ashlyn's funeral, the song "Hundred Grand" by Pete Atherton plays, which is the same song that played at the unveiling of the Flight 180 memorial in Final Destination.
  • In the opening sequence, there are two women, known as "The Electric Sisters", who were electrocuted in their electric chairs, their skins, were overexposed.

  • When Wendy is in her room, her lamp's light bursts.
  • Before they could even go to the tanning room, the camera shows a canister containing an alcoholic (flammable) liquid, showing that what Kevin said was right. It refers to Valerie Lewton's vodka. This shows Ashley's smoothie can cause a lot of trouble.
  • In a less painful and time consuming death, Ashley and Ashlyn are electrocuted in a deleted scene. Ashley lies in her bed screaming as the temperature rises, but Ashlyn manages to get out, only to get whacked in the head by the wood. Ashley struggles to get free, but can't until Ashlyn wakes back up. When Ashlyn grabs Ashley's hand, the bed breaks and instead of a fire igniting, Ashley is electrocuted by the current.
  • During Ashley and Ashlyn's funeral, the song Hundred Grand by Pete Atherton plays, which is the same song that played at the unveiling of the Flight 180 memorial in Final Destination.

    Dfsdsf

    Frankie Cheeks

  • In the opening credits, a Ferris Wheel is shown having a lighting effect in the shape of a fan.
  • Frankie shares the same name as a character in Final Destination 2, Frankie. Ironically, that Frankie's death is also caused by a truck.
  • At the drive-thru beside Frankie's car, a yellow flower says CURLY FRIES. It looks like the fan that killed Frankie and the color is the same as his car.
  • In the novel, Frankie was actually decapitated by the fan blade.
  • In the original script of Final Destination 3 Frankie was never going to die.
  • In the opening scene there's a picture of a circus freak bitting down on a saw.
  • The Hice Pale Ale beer truck in Final Destination 2 was shown in the drive-thru.

Lewis Romero

  • When Lewis is playing the hammer game, he hits it with enough force to knock the head off the game.
  • In Wendy's picture of Lewis it looks like a weight is coming down on his head.
  • A cardboard sultan is also shown in the picture. Lewis's football team was named The Sultans.
  • The aforementioned sultan was wielding a pair of swords identical to the ones on display in the gym.
  • A toy bear is shown in Lewis's picture. A large, stuffed bear is on display in the gym.
    Untitledfghf

  • The song "Killing Time" is playing on a radio someone turns on in the gym.
  • At the opening scene there's a picture of a sword swallower.
  • Lewis was seen in the opening of The Final Destination this was Wendy's premonition and it showed that he broke his spine.

Erin Ulmer

  • Wendy sees several fans, reminiscing Frankie's death.
  • A soft gust of wind blows in the store.
  • The lights in the store flicker for a brief moment.
  • Wendy takes a picture of Ian and Erin. In the photo, it looks like Ian is about to shoot Erin in the head with a gun.
    Erin Ulmer

    Erin Ulmer

  • The way Erin held up her arm at her face when the nails permeate her head is the same pose as the photo.
  • In a deleted scene, Erin doesn't die due to sand. A pigeon (one that Ian didn't kill in the real version) flies up in her face and as she swats at it she slips on sawdust on the floor. However she is still shot with nails in the same fashion.
  • In the opening, there is a woman with nails through her face.
  • Erin refers the customers as pinhead.
  • In the picture her nail is next to the gun. When you put the words together you get nailgun.

Perry Malinowski

  • The flag that impales her reads LIBERTY OR DEATH.
    Frgf

    Perry Malinowski

  • In the picture Wendy took of Julie and Perry on the night of the accident, an American flag can be seen behind Perry in the background.
  • Perry is the only character to die that doesn't speak at all in the film, the only sounds she makes are a scream when she falls from the rollercoaster, and a moan when she slides down the flagpole.

Ian McKinley

  • In one of the photos, there's a banner shaped like the plywood, above Ian, that says KILL, however this death was intervened.
  • The giant sign that crushed McKinley reads McKinley and is pointing down at him similar to the banners from Wendy's photo. Also, just before Ian is crushed, he looks upwards at it in the same fashion as he looks up at the plywood that was originally going to kill him.
  • In the alternate ending where Wendy smashes the camera, Ian is completely crushed by the cherry picker. This was actually the original ending of the film.
    Sasad

    Ian McKinley

  • In a scene where Wendy is going to her car outside of school, Ian tells his girlfriend, Erin, that he hates how his last name is the town's name. It is shown that he has a yearbook, and above the school name, Ian just puts his first name.
  • When Ian is following Wendy to the tricentennial, Wendy's car radio automatically plays "Turn Around, Look At Me", prompting Wendy to look behind her and sees Ian following her, indicating that Ian tries to kill Wendy afterwards.
  • In the picture, it looks like Ian is shooting Erin, and he is killed when Fireworks are shot at him.

Julie Christensen and Kevin Fischer
Julie-christensen-large

Julie Christensen

  • In the photos, it shows one when Wendy flashed the camera at Kevin's face, looking like a firework burned his face. However, Wendy intervened with this death.
  • When he is against the train window, his facial expression is similar to the one in his photo.
  • In an alternate ending, Wendy observes the train schedule and notices the last stop says END in bold, red letters.
  • A subway musician starts singing "Turn Around, Look At Me," which is a recurring song in the movie.
  • In Wendy's photo, Jason's face is blurred. On the train, the people speed past Wendy and all of their faces are blurry.
  • While looking in the mirror, Wendy notices the train's number. Backwards, it reads 180.
  • Wendy sees a sign advertising the restaurant where Frankie Cheeks died.
  • Wendy sees a sign advertising the store where Erin Ulmer died.
    Dff

    Kevin Fischer

  • Wendy sees a sign advertising the store where Ashley and Ashlyn died.
  • Wendy sees a sign stating, There is no escaping DEATH and taxes.
  • The train conductor menacingly stated, "The next stop is the end of the line."
  • In an alternate ending, the derailment happens and Kevin is filleted to death and all the survivors die, and then the credits roll.
  • One of the men boarding the train is bald and sports a white and red tattoo, with the tattoo on the left side of his head - which makes him eerily look like Frankie Cheeks when he died.
  • There is strong controversy about Wendy, Kevin, and Julie's deaths. There's a slight possibility that the train stopped after several attempts by Kevin, but this is highly doubtful. Not only that, but since it just so happens Kevin's on the same train Wendy and Julie are on, it would be a great opportunity for Death to finish up the list (although it seems like Death mostly arranged for that to happen , seeing Julie's car "just broke down"). Also, no one has managed to successfully cheat Death in any of the Final Destination films, so the fact that Kevin didn't die would be baffling.
  • A strange fact about Kevin, Wendy, and Julie's deaths are that usually if at the end of the movie it is unknown whether the survivors lived or not, in the next movie, their fates are revealed. In the end of Final Destination, it is unknown whether Alex, Clear, and Carter survive but their fates are revealed in the next movie. The same goes for the fate of Kimberly and Officer Burke in Final Destination 2. Their fates are revealed in Final Destination 3 in a newspaper article in Choose Their Fate. Yet, Wendy, Kevin, and Julie's deaths aren't mentioned in The Final Destination so there is still the slight possibility that they have not died.
  • It should be noted that Wendy, Kevin and Julie live in the novel.
  • In The Fireworks Area, when the stick hits the wire to the flammable tanks, and the fire goes up in Kevin's face. It is similar when Clear River's face was burned by a fire explosion in Final Destination 2.

Wendy Christensen

  • Ian was never meant to kill Wendy. Wendy just mistook her clue in the photograph (A shirt with 'McKinley') as a sign that Ian will be the cause of her death. The 'McKinley' clue was actually referring to the Cherry picker that was supposed to kill Wendy, but killed Ian instead. Ian died because he was (unknowingly) intervening with Wendy's death just by standing in their way.
  • While Wendy is on Train 081, she has a brief vision of a photo of her and Jason, who was one of the casualties of Devil's Flight, foreshadowing that she would be soon reunited with him in afterlife. (This is interesting as Wendy said she did not believe in life after death)
  • In an alternate ending, Wendy observes the train schedule and notices the last stop says END in bold, red letters.
  • The voice of the mortician from the first two movies plays the conductor on the train.
  • A subway musician starts singing "Turn Around, Look At Me," which is a recurring song in the movie.
  • In Wendy's photo, Jason's face is blurred. On the train, the people speed past Wendy and all of their faces are blurry.
  • While looking in the mirror, Wendy notices the train's number. Backwards, it reads 180.
  • Wendy sees a sign advertising the restaurant where Frankie Cheeks died.
  • Wendy sees a sign advertising the store where Erin Ulmer died.
  • Wendy sees a sign advertising the store where Ashley and Ashlyn died.

  • The train conductor menacingly stated, "The next stop is the end of the line."
  • In an alternate ending, Wendy is run over and splattered by a train, and then the credits roll.
  • One of the men boarding the train is bald and sports a white and red tattoo, with the tattoo on the left side of his head - which makes him eerily look like Frankie Cheeks when he died.
  • There is strong controversy about Wendy, Kevin, and Julie's deaths. There's a slight possibility that the train stopped after several attempts by Kevin, but this seems doubtful. No one has managed to successfully cheat Death in any of the other Final Destination films, so the fact that Wendy didn't die would be baffling. But another possibility is that since Wendy had a premonition of the collision, she could have had used her knowledge of what was going to happen to her advantage in order to save Julie and Kevin and herself from their gruesome fate. But of course, this is still unknown.
  • A strange fact about Kevin, Wendy, and Julie's deaths are that usually if at the end of the movie it is unknown whether the survivors lived or not, in the next movie, their fates are revealed. In the end of Final Destination, it is unknown whether Alex, Clear, and Carter survive but their fates are revealed in the next movie. The same goes for the fate of Kimberly and Officer Burke in Final Destination 2.Their fates are revealed in Final Destination 3 in a newspaper article in Choose Their Fate but it is non-canon. Yet, Wendy, Kevin, and Julie's deaths aren't mentioned in The Final Destination so there is still the slight possibility that they have not died. Although in The Final Destination, since the introduction shows all the deaths in the Final Destination series, it could've proved that Wendy died getting ran over by a train.
  • It should be noted that Wendy, Kevin and Julie all live in the novel.
  • Its possible that Wendy, Kevin and Julie will be mentioned in Final Destination 5.
  • Jason Wise, her boyfriend, said this: "Meet you at the end," before getting on the coaster and dying, presumably for shadowing her death AT THE END of the movie.
  • There were rumors going on that she would appear in Final Destination 5 so there is a possibility she didn't die.
