Flight is the fourth episode of the second season of the TV show R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series.


A young boy goes on his first plane ride alone and gets caught in the middle of a fight for survival when The Grim Reaper (posing as an old woman) forces a dead man (whom the boy can see) to cross over into the afterlife.


Josh is flying for his first time on a plane, to visit his divorced Dad and his new girlfriend. When he goes right to his seat, Josh meets a rich guy (who has been flying alone his whole life)- and the man doesn't seem to be very social. Soon the plane takes off and very strange things start to happen... Like the light's power starts going out and back on, the plane's engines have a high risk of failing- and if that wasn't enough the Grim Reaper is one of the passengers.

When Josh finds out that the rich guy is a ghost and the Death has come to help him move on, the boy tries to help the ghost calm down. The only problem is that this lonely ghost just doesn't want to go towards the Afterlife! The ghost then gets upset and it causes the power on the plane to go out at a high altitude. Josh then helps the ghost realize that maybe it is time for his spirit to move on... The man then tells the Grim Reaper that he is now ready to go to the Afterlife.

The man says his good-byes to Josh and then goes. The plane's power goes back on and the plane lands with out any more problems. Josh then says to the Reaper that the reason that he could save the ghost... Maybe this was because the strange situation was so the boy could help the man and the man could help him out instead. Josh says "Later," (as in "See you later,"), the Reaper then replies with "Without a doubt..."
