'Manifest' Season 1: After Episode 10, fans now want Michaela to stop lusting after a married man
Michaela should have probably considered the fact that things are over between her and Jared, and it's time for her to move on, believe some fans
'Manifest' returned to NBC on January 7, and as fans had expected Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) and Jared (J.R. Ramirez) had a moment of weakness where the two of them shared some romantic time together. However, it was revealed that both felt guilty about the act, especially Jared since he is already married to Michaela's best friend Lourdes (Victoria Cartagena). Starring alongside Josh Dallas as Ben Stone, and Athena Karkanis as Grace, Roxburgh and Ramirez's characters are right now under the radar of fans who are surprisingly refusing to see the two together.
When the show went on its long fall break, fans were eager to know that if things will change between Michaela and Jared after the moment they shared during the bomb blast.
However, now that the two have set aside their inhibitions to pursue their passion, fans seem to have a problem with that. A Reddit user mentioned, "I want Michaela to stop lusting after a married man and just leave that whole relationship alone. I get it, your best friend and your fiance got together. Blame both of them and cross them out." Fans on Twitter are of the same opinion as most are considering the situation as nothing less than home-wrecking.
Watch the clip below:
One fan on Twitter said, "Homewrecking is never a good storyline imo but alas...", while another supported the statement by commenting, "No, no, noooooooooo. He is married. This will not end well. I know they love each other, but he made a choice. Even if it was based on wrong conclusions, they should have waited." The sudden shift in fan's preference of seeing Jared with Michaela probably arises from the anticipation of Lourdes' pregnancy. Although we still don't know if she is truly expecting or was simply planning on starting a family, the last shot which focused on Jared guiltily looking at Lourdes in a way shows that things are about to get complicated.
However, what fans are most concerned about are the "Callings". Michaela has been faithfully following the voices in her head, as though they were messages from God. This could be the result of her mother's consistent faith in religion, and she herself adopting the same faith from her mother. In case the voices are truly determined to guide Michaela in the path of redemption, then the fact that she got involved with Jared might cause the voices to turn against her. We already know that there is someone looking for Michaela, but who is it? Could it be a new person in her life? Or is it something dangerous? We will find out when Episode 11 'Contrails' returns to NBC on January 14, at 10 pm.
