Pan Am: Unscheduled Departure

Updated on April 21, 2013

Pan Am: Unscheduled Departure


Pan Am: Unscheduled Departure

On tonight’s episode the crew is in more than they have bargained for as they are on a flight south of the border when a medical emergency arises and a passenger has a heart attack on the pane. Ultimately he dies in flight during a storm and the crew has to make an emergency stop on Haiti during politically turbulent times. And no one is quite expecting what they see.

As French is the native language of Haiti along with Creole everyone is dependent upon to Collete to help them out which finally gives Collete a more promising role on the crew. It is clear that Dean is beginning to move on from Bridget as he is now falling for Collete which in television usually means Bridget will show up.

Maggie will be forever free spirited Maggie.

Kate is now healing her broken heart from Nicco returning to Yugoslavia.

Laura is over her fling with the sailor John.

And Ted is still carrying a torch for Laura.

And somewhere in between the girls all become smitten with a millionaire.

So a crash landing in Haiti with a dead passenger sounds just like what the Pan Am is up for this week.

Pan Am; Unscheduled Departure


So the crew ends up in Haiti because they were taken off course by a hurricane to Haiti. The country is under siege by a ruthless dictator. A passenger has a heart attack and Colette has to go to a local hospital to get the passenger medicine.

Unfortunately, the run way is to short and they are grounded in Haiti. Dean is going to drop some of the pay load so they can lift off from the short runway.

Colette promises a Haitian a trip to the USA. Dean refuses Colette but then finally gives in.

I love this show and think it is awesome. I love all the characters with all of their flaws and their gifts. This is always an intriguing show but I felt like this particular episode drifted off the characters a bit and was more focused on a political agenda. It is a political year and I would appreciate the media keeping politics out of my entertainment. I endured two Republican debates this week so I was looking forward to Pan Am being non-political.

But last 15 minutes as it revealed everythingt he characters where supressing in the show and it was well played.

      Hi Danette Watt,

      It has been a while and I am so glad ot hear from you. I think this show is trying to be too many things to too many people. If they would stick with the through line I think the show would do very well and pick up ratings. It has the potential to do so if the writer's change/ limit the story lines to non-political themes.

      Yes, I miss the old days of flying as well.

      They said that about Unforgettable as well and it made it.

      Hopefully Pan Am will as well. I hated to watch it go down twice.

      Thanks for commenting,

      All My Best.

      I occasionally watch this show and enjoy it when I do but I've heard it's not doing well in the ratings and may be cancelled. Too bad. And too bad flying isn't the pleasurable experience it used to be!
