'Manifest': Are Ben and Grace back on track after their Monday night date?
Ben and Grace have seen many ups and downs, and it's time that they shut everything out to be with each other for a while.
For the longest time fans of 'Manifest' have been wondering if Ben and Grace will be able to make it as a couple. While some fans have already declared that Grace will eventually go back to Danny, it seems like - after the eighth episode which aired on Monday - the Stone couple is ready to start their life anew.
Starring Josh Dallas as Ben and Athena Karkanis as Grace, the Stone couple has been the most hyped affair in the series. Ben and Grace faced a brief hiccup initially, when after returning from the plane Ben discovered that Grace was already in a relationship with another man, Danny.
However, the two managed to keep their differences aside since Grace had already broken her relationship with Danny when she was informed about the plane's return. In the eighth episode, for the first time in a while, the couple was seen spending some quality time together, trying to make up for the missing five years in their relationship. Fans cannot seem to get enough of that moment, in spite of rooting for Ben to go along with Saanvi, instead of Grace.
In a Twitter post shared by actor Josh Dallas, one fan commented, "That very adorable and beautiful date night because I love this scene #Manifest." Grace and Ben have faced a lot of hardship due to the gap in their relationship after the plane went missing for five years. With their relationship almost falling apart, the two have fought against all odds to keep it going, but every now and then, there would be a loophole which none would notice.
However, with the eighth episode, Ben finally decided to spend some time with Grace, and it turned to be quite a success for their relationship. Grace, who has been in a dilemma about choosing between Ben and Danny, finally found a closure with Danny to begin a new life with Ben.
Another fan mentioned, "It would be REALLY great to see their relationship turn a corner and be a power couple, fighting the craziness together! #Manifest." Both Ben and Grace have had their own breaking points at some point. Over the last three episodes, they have made every attempt to come closer but have failed due to some reason. However, neither have ever thought about quitting the marriage. Grace gave up on Danny to continue her married life with Ben, and Ben has been running errands to make sure that his family is safe. What unites the two is their mutual love for their children, but it also sets them apart because they want different things for the children.
However, the Stones continue to be one of the favorite families on TV and a lot of credit would go to Grace and Ben who have truly taken up their responsibilities. Chiefly shaded as a good, white character Ben has been the ideal husband, the perfect father, and a good companion. However, Grace who is more complicated in nature has probably not been a fan favorite, but she is one character who stands out in her way of perceiving difficult situations.
This unfitting dynamic between them and the characters' to see beyond what is most suitable, and accept each other with every flaw has truly made them the power couple that we have always wanted to see.
