The mortician said that Death has a design, right? Now, what if you, me, Tod, Carter, Terry, Billy, Ms. Lewton messed up that design for whatever reason; I saw Death's plan and we cheated him. But what if it was our time? What if we were not meant to get off that plane? What if it still is our time? If it is, then it's not finished, and we will die, now, not later - unless, unless we find the patterns and cheat it again.
~ Alex explaining Death's design.

Alexander Theodore "Alex" Browning is the teenage survivor and visionary of Flight 180 and the main protagonist in the film Final Destination.

Alex was the sixth survivor of Flight 180 to die and is portrayed by Devon Sawa who also portrayed the human form of Casper McFadden.

His story

Alex, with his classmates and teachers, took Flight 180 to head to Paris. While onboard, Alex had an ominous vision of the plane exploding in mid-air. After warning everyone about it, he and some of his friends are removed from the plane.

While waiting at the airport, Alex witnesses the plane explode as he predicted. FBI Agents Schreck and Agent Weine interview the survivors afterwards and believe that Alex was a suicide terrorist.

While attending the memorial for the victims, Alex notices both agents carefully observing him, and develops a relationship with fellow survivor Clear Rivers Tod becomes the first survivor of the plane explosion to die, and the Waggner household's anger towards Alex's family grows further.

With the help of Clear, Alex encounters William Bludworth, a mortician who knows more about Death than anyone else.

Later that night, Alex realizes that Death is claiming back their lives which should've been lost on the plane, and is attacking them according to the order of their deaths on the plane.

Alex and Clear plan to save the remaining survivors, but fails on their attempts. His rival, Carter Horton's girlfriend Terry gets hit by a bus.

Then his teacher, Ms. Lewton, gets killed by a knife impalement with leads to a house fire. Then Carter, insane over Terry's death, attempts to commit suicide by stalling his car on a train track. Alex saves him just as the train comes.

Then Billy Hitchcock is decapitated by the wreckage. Knowing he is next to die, Alex suddenly realizes that he had exchanged seats in his original premonition, thus Clear will die before him.

Finding Clear at her car trapped by livewires, Alex sacrifices himself by touching the wires to let her escape. It is revealed later on that Alex survived the electrocution.

Now at Paris, the films ends with Carter saving Alex from a falling neon sign, but eventually resulted to his own death.

His final Death

After Carter died, Alex hadn't left his home for three months. One day, Alex and Clear were next to a building in a back way alley.

Near the back window, a falling brick suddenly fell and smashed Alex's head and he collapsed to the ground as blood started running from his head to his chin.

Alex's body was next to a horrified Clear as a local merchant heard the scream and called the police to come to the scene.
