'Manifest' Episode 10: Promo trailer suggests reunion of old lovers and arrival of a new enemy
While some old lovers will give their relationship another chance, new enemies will come to turn their world upside down.
'Manifest' has taken a mid-season hiatus after its Fall finale, with the Jeff Rake-directed NBC show so far managing to preserve its top spot as the best TV show this Fall.
Starring Josh Dallas (as Ben Stone), Melissa Roxburgh (as Michaela Stone), Athena Karkanis (as Grace), JR Ramirez (as Jared), and Parveen Kaur (as Saanvi), 'Manifest' follows the aftermath of the sudden re-appearance of Montego Air Flight 828 which went missing for almost five and a half years.
While the passengers were presumed dead, their sudden return was a shock for everyone since none of them had aged a day; and now they were experiencing certain "callings" which seems to be leading them towards one destination.
The ninth episode saw Ben, Vance (played by Daryl Edwards), Saanvi and Michaela set out on a mission to rescue the 11 missing passengers on whom the UDS was carrying certain experiments in order to track the "callings" through mirror neurons.
The mission was a success, but not without Vance losing his life and Jared ending up in the hospital with severe injuries. The show left us on a loose end when it comes to relationship dynamics as we saw Grace and Ben deciding to quit their marriage, although they both seemed reluctant about it.
As the long wait for the show's return (set for January 7) is about to make us even more restless, here are the three things that you need to look out for in the tenth episode, after the Fall break:
1. What was lost, is now found
Good news is that it looks like Michaela and Jared are going to be together after all. The promo trailer of the tenth episode gives us glimpses where Jared is seen confessing his love for Michaela, and they also share a kiss. However, that leaves us with the question: what about Lourdes? We know that she is pregnant, and is planning to start a family with Jared. However, when Jared came to consciousness in the last scene of the ninth episode, he did not want to be with Lourdes but held on to Michaela's hand. Probably, the two will finally be able to realize that they should be together since that is what they both want.
2. "Not dead anymore"
It was quite heartbreaking to see Ben and Grace end it on such an off note since the two were sincerely trying to put their lives back together. It had been extremely difficult for Grace to deal with her husband and son's death, and now that they are back the very thought of losing them once again torments her. Unable to stand the tension, she did ask Ben to leave the family but Ben isn't someone who is giving up on his family. He will return, and the promo trailer reveals him claiming to Grace. "I am not dead anymore". Probably Ben will take his stand and put his foot down on the fact that he is here to stay, and maybe Grace will finally be able to understand his recklessness about the disappearance of the plane.
3. Old friends, new enemies
Now that Lawrence is dead, we are curious to know who Autumn texted when she was alone in the basement? There are chances that it could be Matt Long's character, Zeke, who was initially being assumed to come as Michaela's new love interest. Chances are that he is the actual head of UDS, for whom Lawrence was only working. Also, since we are considering that Vance might be alive - as we never saw a trace of his dead body - he will probably come back to take down the new UDS head. However, we are still doubtful about Fiona Clarke's intentions as she immediately took away the rescued passengers after the blast.
'Manifest' returns to NBC on January 7. Watch the promo trailer below:
