Well one troper likes to believe this is what happened.

Well one troper likes to believe this is what happened.happened.
[[WMG: Hypnos (Greek God of Sleep) and Hades(Greek God of the Underworld) noticed that Thanatos(Greek God of Death and Hypnos' twin) seemed to be getting a bit bored with it all.]]
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.

He knows a lot about Death because he was programmed with that information inside him. He was designed to share this information and help those fighting against Death. He has no feelings, that's why he can talk about it without feeling fear or pity. However, he can't further help the characters because he isn't programmed to do it. However, and most importantly, he can learn things: that's why [[spoiler: he stopped talking about the "kill to save yourself" rule after FD5 (the first film in chronological order), where he did it and it resulted in one of the survivors trying to kill another one of them. This outcome is pretty predictable if you are a human and you know human nature, but maybe if he's some kind of robot he didn't see it coming until it happened, thus allowing him to stop talking about that rule in the future.]] This possibility could also have something to do with his voice being heard in Devil's Flight and the subway.

Bludworth, the Coroner, knows the secret to actually living through one of these tragedies. He's seen these things before. He sticks around for the first few shown accidents before eventually disappearing entirely. When bringing up the fact he has experienced this he gets a look in his face of almost pure fear, or at least as much as Tony Todd can do. It just seems to be that he's the only person to have survived as long as he has. Obsessed with Death, he works in a job allowing him to be that close to it, so he can keep an eye on it and help others. Now, having the ability and funds to cover up certain situations to lead to this kind of lifestyle would be hard to do on a county labor salary, so he gets second and third jobs as a barker for a carnival and as a conductor for the metro. All in all, he's always there when these things happen, because he can see them coming before anyone else; he's dealt with Death for so long he's beginning to know more about the entity than it knows itself. Now the tables have turned. Sadly, he can't seem to even get his point across to anyone no matter how many times he explains it to them, and finally gives up after the deaths of Amber, Wendy, and Kevin. Moving on with his life, he lets death take him, hence why he has no involvement with the McKinley Speedway tragedy. With no one to help the survivors, the secret to immortality is lost forever, and Death wins ultimately having killed everyone ever involved, possibly once and for all ending the chain.

If the Butterfly Effect of cheating death is really as powerful as we see in Final Destination 2 and people cheating death really is as common as we see in Final Destination 5, then it's only a matter of time before it starts overtaking the world. What if the person who would have invented a cure for cancer or some remarkable vaccine cheats death, putting millions of people on the list? Eventually Death will probably just decide to call it a day and kill everyone with a meteor.

*** Since [[spoiler: FD5 is a prequel of FD1, and Sam dies in the same accident that Alex Browning foresees]], this theory doesn't hold up.

Think about it: every time he gives someone a vision of their own death and they evade it, the Grim Reaper can set up an even more fantastic death, constantly one-upping himself. He's simply repeating this pattern over and over to hone his abilities; the final kill he sets up in this manner will be so awesome, even [[GurrenLagann Kamina]] will have to look at it and say, "Damn, that is AWESOME!".
