Sometime before the start of ''Dead Man's Hand'' Aldis was at a place where someone (who was a stranger to him) had a premonition of an accident and Aldis was one of the people who were saved. The visionary (and possibly some others) managed to track down Aldis and explained to him about Death's Design, and then saved him from whatever was going to kill him then (thus placing him at the end of the list), but Aldis brushes it off as a coincidence. The remaining survivors (including the visionary) all die, and Aldis continues with own life, when (at the start of ''Dead Man's Hand'') Death comes for him again and tries to kill him with the elevator, but fails (but he is not skipped, as he is the only survivor left on the list) - he notices [[SuspiciouslyAproposMusic the song on his iPod]] and remembers what the visionary told him about looking out for signs, and finally starts to believe, at list a little, and then dies in a car accident, which is again orchestrated by Death, finally closing that list.

[[WMG: "Death" is actually the God of Good]]
Death is a natural part of life. It allows new life to be formed and gives what life we have meaning. Imagine a world without death: all the pain and agony of age would continue. If someone was decapitated, his body would continue functioning in a state of perpetual agony. If someone was disemboweled, he would continue feeling that same agony. What could even be eaten? If plants and animals can't be killed, how would they be eaten?

The visions aren't sent by Death, but by a cosmic force, "Anti-Death," who is constantly trying to undermine Death's plan. The brutality of the deaths of the survivors is either Death is mistakenly believes the survivors are working with Anti-Death and is attempting to punish them, or he genuinely doesn't understand how much pain and terror he is causing.

He, in essence, is just checking off lists all day every day forever. So Hypnos has his son Morpheus send visions of their coming death to various people. Then they show Thanatos what they've done and Hades gives Thanatos full rein to take back these lost souls. Kind of like your boss given you a free pass to an amusement park. Soon all the deities of the Underworld are sitting in a cavern watching the master at work while eating pomegranate flavored popcorn and cheering Thanatos on. I always watch the movies from this perspective. It greatly adds to my entertainment.

In the CrapsackWorld of ''FinalDestination'', discovering you're 'special' [[BlessedWithSuck is a]] ''[[BlessedWithSuck very]]'' [[BlessedWithSuck bad thing]]. Their society exposes them to so much [[BloodierAndGorier death, destruction, and tragedy]] that any potential {{Reality Warper}}s/espers have developed a ''potent'' [[PrimalFear fear of death]]. When their powers awaken, they envision a worst-case scenario of how something as simple as riding a plane or a roller coaster could [[GoneHorriblyWrong Go Horribly Wrong]]-- and [[YourMindMakesItReal cause it to happen]].

The vision from ''4'' has Grove dying ''before'' Hunt or Janet, not after. By rights, Grove should've died before Hunt's death or Janet's rescue. But if something the other characters did ''inadvertently'' prolonged Grove's life, then the scenario still matches up. So perhaps Grove nearly suffered a death by medical malpractice - the wrong drug administered, a heat monitor shorting out, etc - but was saved by a hospital staff member who wouldn't have been on hand to do so, had the main characters not unwittingly intervened. For example, perhaps one of the doctors ''would'' have been treating one of Andy the Mechanic's co-workers for an on-the-job injury, except that Andy's death forced the shop to close early for the day and consequently the injury never took place. (Had the others not shown up at the shop, Andy would have lived until the end of shift, long enough for his colleague to be injured.) End result: the doctor had a few minutes to spare to check up on Jonathan, and discovered the error in time to save him. Then the surviving main characters' own alertness kept them alive, ducking a few close calls they didn't even register, until Grove's turn came up again.
