On this week's episode of FlashForward, Demetri, Janis, Vogel and Simon travel to Somalia to see the towers from the rumored 1991 blackout. Also, Olivia and Mark try to work on their relationship and figure out what was in Charlie's flashforward.
In the beginning of the episode, Mark reveals to Stanford his new intel on "D. Gibbons" now known as Dyson Frost, thanks to Lloyd Simcoe. However, Mark also discovers that Frost supposedly died in a boating accident in 1990, but as we've seen so many times on this series before, there's much more to that than meets the eye.
Elsewhere, we see Demetri, Janis, Simon and Vogel land in war-torn Somalia via helicopter with actual volunteers from the Red Panda humanitarian organization Mark had looked into two episodes before. As soon as the helicopter lands, their guide is shot and killed by a man named Abdi and the team is taken under hostage.
We learn Abdi is not just any regular villager, but someone who lived in the village when the first blackout hit in the village in 1991. Abdi remembers "others," or foreigners who came to the village and promised to bring electricity. Then, when this blackout hit, Abdi was the only one awake and remembers seeing everyone in his village after having fallen to the floor and unconscious.
