'Manifest': Grace, Danny, and Ben are on a collision course in episode 10
The promo trailer for episode 10 of Manifest, set to release on January 7, revealed that Olive had already asked Danny to come in and help her mother overcome her sorrow
NBC's Jeff Rake-created show 'Manifest' left us on an uneasy note where Ben Stone was asked by his wife Grace to leave the house and it seemed unlikely that the two would get back together anytime soon.
Starring Josh Dallas as Ben Stone, Athena Karkanis as Grace, Melissa Roxburgh as Michaela, and JR Ramirez as Jared, 'Manifest' has been following the aftermath of the sudden re-appearance of Montego Air Flight 828 which went missing for almost five and a half years. The flight eventually reappeared but none of their lives have remained the same.
Grace and Ben have probably been the biggest victims in the incident — their relationship developed a prominent crack when they tried to start afresh — which neither could avoid.
In the fall finale episode which aired on November 26, Ben went to great lengths to help his son Cal (played by Jack Messina) overcome the pain that was indirectly being inflicted upon him. Being clairsensitive, Cal was feeling the same intensity of pain as Marco, one of the 11 abducted passengers who was taken away for experimentation by the UDS in order to track the "Callings" that the passengers were experiencing.
In his chase, Ben discovered that all the passengers were related and if one of them was electrocuted, the rest would feel the same sensation. Although Ben successfully managed to rescue the passengers and bring Cal home safe, his entire act was left unappreciated.
Grace immediately asked him to leave the house under the pretext that his presence was nothing more than a threat to her children. As a witness to this feud between her parents, Olive (played by Luna Blaise) might have to take up a decision that will bring, probably, some clarity in their life.
The promo trailer for episode 10, which is set to release on January 7, revealed that Olive had already asked Danny (played by Daniel Sunjata) to come in and help her mother overcome her sorrow. Danny was the man Grace had fallen back on when Ben went missing. When her husband and son finally arrived, she had to let go of Danny in order to start anew.
However, with Danny coming back to the house, Ben is not prepared to leave his family in the hands of an unknown man. The promo trailers show him barging into the house and claiming his place as the man of the house.
In between all the feuds, it is Olive who really falls into a difficult situation. Ben is the man who is married to her mother, and Danny is the man who helped her in her teenage years. With two father-figures, each trying to claim their places in the house, Olive — who practically lived with two fathers — will probably have some hard time coping with the amount of adult drama going on.
'Manifest' returns to NBC on January 7. This time, actor Matt Long is all set to join the cast. Watch the promo trailer below.
