* The Langoliers, questionable SFX aside, are just terrifying. They're ClockRoaches that devour the previous time continuum in order to extend eternity, but there's if that's the case, they would've attacked everything including the rest of the main cast instead of [[spoiler:hounding down Toomey. According to him, they're this universe's equivalent to [[PunchClockVillain working class]] Boogie Man who chase after all the "lazy bums who lay down the job"; and it was hammered into this man's head by his father who did not take his son getting an A- well creating a paranoid obsession with success, causing him to one day miss an appointment because his father wanted him to succeed in a job he hates forced onto him by his overbearing dad. When he finally admits his failures, the Langoliers finally arrive at his "father's" beckoning in order to eat him alive as he screams "DADDY! MAKE THEM GO AWAY!!" Langoliers are sadistic creeps, aren't they?]]

** That's bad enough to begin with, and it gets worse when you consider that [[spoiler:Dinah, having been in and out of Toomy's head throughout
the Langoliers finally arrive at his "father's" beckoning story, appears to him in the guise of an angel in order to eat lead him alive as out of the terminal and away from the airplane, so that he'll bait the langoliers away from it for long enough to give everyone else a chance at escape.

Did the ClockRoaches take the shape of Toomy's terrors in order to torment and kill him? Or were they ''given'' it, by a dying little girl who quite coldly chose to murder Craig Toomy in hope of saving the other passengers' lives?]]
