I'm guessing they ordered the five scripts because Sony brought in a new showrunner, if the new showrunner came up with something absolutely brilliant that couldn't be left unproduced, more episodes would have been produced. Sony will have been desperate to keep it on the air so it probably wouldn't have even cost ABC. The ratings aren't completely dire so ordering more scripts would allow them to decide whether or not it was worth giving the show another go to turn things around. When they only chose to produce one, I think that was pretty much a no. Networks aren't really known to sit on the fence about these things. Did you suffer some sort of air hostess related trauma?
