Is the flex property only targetting a specific line, as opposed to all lines?

In the video, the tertiary column didn't get the 50% flex basis when it was on another line, this is why I am asking this.

The "flex-basis" is a minimum size. So when the item wrapped onto a line by itself, it was able to expand to fill the line.
