|~ Grandpa Flick absorbing their initiation to the True Knot.|
Jonas Flick, also known as Grampa Flick is a minor antagonist in Stephen King's novel & 2019 film, Doctor Sleep, a direct sequel to The Shining.
In the 2019 film, he was portrayed by Carel Struycken, who also portrayed Raymond Andrew Joubert in Gerald's Game.
That night, Rose brings Andi out by the beach for a ceremony. The eldest True Knot member, Grampa Flick, leads the ceremony. Rose pulls out a canister containing the shine of Violet, presented as some kind of powerful steam. Rose feeds Violet's shine to Andi while the other True Knot members get their share of it. Andi writhes and screams until she has absorbed the shine.
Rose meditates and manages to get into Abra's head while she's asleep. She finds what looks like filing cabinets and tries digging through them, but Abra anticipated Rose would come back, so she traps her hand in the drawer, causing Rose to tear her skin as she pulls her hand out. She snaps back to her regular body and sees her injury followed her. She reports to the others that Abra set a trap for her, and so it is now clear that she has to be killed. Crow then informs Rose that Grampa Flick is "cycling." Too weakened to keep going, he convulses until he decays, and the cult absorbs his steam.
Jonas hasn't eaten for a while and he is cycling. Too weakened to keep going due to his age, he convulses and decays, letting out his "shining" out of him and the others absorb it.
James gave this death the "Golden Chainsaw Award" because it perfectly portrayed "cycling" like in the book.
