Before Flight 828[]

Cal and his twin sister were born on April 19, 2002 to Ben Stone and Grace Stone. Sometime in 2008, Cal was diagnosed with leukemia and did not respond to any treatment available at the time. They go to Jamaica for a final vacation in 2013. At the end of the vacation, due to overbooking, the family has to choose who will go on Flight 828, and Cal volunteers to spend time with his dad while his sister goes with her mom. ("Pilot")

During Flight 828[]

During Flight 828 Cal is sleeping with his dad and aunt when he wakes up and looks outside to see a light. ("Unclaimed Baggage") His seat on the plane was 5B.

After Flight 828[]

Cal returns after being missing for five years. Initially, no one believed that it was possible that Cal and the others hadn't aged. However, the stark difference between him and his sister's ages was significant, as Olive grew older while Cal remained a child. During those five years, a new successful treatment for leukemia had been developed based on the research from another passenger, Saanvi Bahl, and it brings him into remission. ("Pilot")

Several weeks later Cal develops a psychic link to a missing passenger named Marko Valeriev. This is exhibited by symptoms similar to an illness, speaking Bulgarian and seizures. As Ben works to fix him he discovers that an off the books agency is conducting human testing on Marko and ten other passengers via electric shock, and other measures. ("Off Radar")

Some time after this, Cal experiences a Calling about a man named Zeke, and travels to upstate Tannersville to find him. During this time, The Major learns that Cal experiences Callings in a special way and begins sending groups to look for him. Cal stays inside a cabin where he waits for Zeke and eventually reunites with his family.

Cal had left them his sketchbook with his drawings of the calling he had, allowing Ben and Grace to track him down and find him much to their relief. Cal bonds with Zeke over time seeing as a big brother and regularly talks with him about the callings and what they mean. Eventually Cal has a calling about their fate.

Cal starts to ransack his entire room out grief and anger. Eventually he calms down and Zeke talks to him, he show him the recent calling showing his, Ben’s, and Michaela’s tombstone believing they will die. Later Cal talks to his family after they deduce their death date, with Cal confirming this through his drawing.

The night before the Death Date, Cal sacrifices himself to act as a beacon to draw in all of the passengers. Cal's sapphire combined with Noah's Ark brings back Flight 828 for the passengers. ("Formation", "Final Boarding")

A New Timeline[]

After beating the Death Date, Flight 828 is sent back in time to April 7, 2013, which was when the plane was supposed to land the first time, thereby creating a new timeline where they get a second chance. Cal is resurrected and restored to his childhood with no memories of the last five and a half years in the original timeline, unlike the rest of the passengers that survived the Death Date. Although this causes Cal's leukemia to return once again, Ben introduces Grace to Saanvi, knowing that she can cure it again, just like she did the first time. Ben realizes that they've been given a gift, Cal in particular since his loss of memory means that Cal has his childhood back. ("Final Boarding")

Trivia[]

  • Cal is shown to have poor judgement, having sheltered the mentally unstable Angelina Meyer just because they were connected by 828, which resulted in Angelina murdering his mother and kidnapping his baby sister.
    • He spends season 4 hating himself for it, with Cal noting his father can't stand to look at him or spend time with him over the last two years.
  • He has terrible communication skills. Cal constantly ignores telling people of his Callings of the future and heads off on his own, endangering himself repeatedly. Much to the frustration of his father, who has to cover up all the messes Cal causes.
  • Cal seems to know the real truth of 828, as he saw the light that was outside the plane when everyone else was unconscious.
    • He ended up being connected to The Last Trial, causing its failure because he couldn't stop singing a nursery rhyme, which drove Jace insane.
  • Cal doesn't seem to know what old sail boats look like, constantly mentioning "spider webs" when the family was enduring the storm Calling.
  • Cal's connection to the callings are much more stronger. He sees things a lot more clearly then any other passenger. Proof of this is his drawings, he always draws the callings he has usually of places or people he's never known or met.
  • He likes playing Minecraft and Fortnite.
  • In season 4, Cal has shown to have gained new abilities along with the dragon scar:
    • Cal can access the Divine Consciousness in the form of Flight 828.
    • Cal was able to pull anyone he chose into a calling and speak to them for as long as he wanted.
    • Cal was able to see other callings by touching the photo or focusing on the passenger of the calling he wanted to see.
    • Cal was able to bring back small objects from a calling/divine consciousness, which could be seen and touched by others.
    • Cal was able to project himself or others to any of the 828 passengers.
    • Cal was able to access the callings of all the other passengers by sitting in their seat on Flight 828, within the Divine Consciousness.
