Season 2 of Manifest has raised deep philosophical questions in regards to the position that Flight 828 passengers and the Calling, a shared supernatural prevalence, play within the grand scheme of issues. Have they been picked to serve the larger good by these cryptic messages from a seemingly all-powerful power? Or are they harbingers of the apocalypse, as Adrian (Jared Grimes) has hypothesized? The truth that Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) ignoring a Calling then led to Cal’s (Jack Messina) abduction by three meth criminals, who we now know are the ominous shadows teased firstly of the season, appears to provide some credence to Adrian’s concept.
With only one episode left, showrunner Jeff Rake alluded to a heart-stopping ultimate hour as Cal’s kidnapping brings these questions and extra into the highlight.
“There may be the real-world life and demise jeopardy that Cal is in as Ben and Michaela and others race to rescue him. On a extra mythological scale, the query is whether or not Cal’s abduction by these shadow figures was one way or the other triggered by Michaela’s defiance of the Calling, and has that in flip triggered a trajectory in direction of some sort of apocalypse, as Adrian articulated a number of episodes again,” Rake teased to TV Information.
The episode may even deal with the season-long thriller surrounding the proposed demise date, which suggests passengers and others imbued with the Calling are poised to die within the period of time they disappeared. With Zeke (Matt Long) approaching the ultimate hours of his life, that query stays extra urgent than ever. It might all come right down to Saanvi (Parveen Kaur) and Vance (Daryl Edwards), who will make one final attraction to the Main (Elizabeth Marvel) to assist save Zeke from his demise date.
Manifest‘s Season 2 finale airs Monday, April 6 at 10/9c on NBC.
