                            'Manifest' Season 1 recap: The finale might have just wrecked Grace's reputation forever on the show

Athena Karkanis' character 'Grace' was almost on the verge of retaining her place as a considerably good character on NBC's show, 'Manifest', but the finale seems to have completely abolished her chances. Fans have been keeping her under the radar ever since it was revealed that she was having an affair with Danny ( Daniel Sunjata) while her husband, Ben (Josh Dallas) was missing for almost five and a half years. Ben was one of the passengers on Montego Air Flight 828, which mysteriously went missing for almost five and a half years. However, when these passengers finally landed they began hearing strange voices in their heads which they referred to as "Callings". 

While Ben, his son, Cal (Jack Messina), and his sister, Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) were busy looking for the secret behind these "Callings", for a long time, Grace had absolutely no clue about what was happening. However, when things began to go out of hand and the Stone family fell apart, Ben finally took an effort to explain to Grace about the "Callings", and Cal's ability to predict the future. The couple immediately became a team, and it almost seemed that Grace has been able to close her brief chapter with Danny, and has returned to her husband, Ben. However, one revelation in the finale changed everything. 



 

 

Immediately after it was exposed that Ben, Michaela, and Cal were living in a granted time period of five and a half years, Grace almost dropped the bomb by stating that she was six weeks pregnant, which means the baby is Danny's. This revelation almost saw Grace's reputation take a dive to an all-time low. Fans immediately returned to hating Grace, although in between when she was finally teaming up with Ben we had considered her to be a part of the gang. One fan on Reddit exclaimed, " I realized I hated Grace because regardless of what happened she turns everything into Ben's fault. Cal goes missing on her watch, she has gone and blamed Ben. Grace is not a likable character. She does get better."

Fans are suspecting that the baby was possibly conceived when the family was out on their trip to Jamaica. (IMDb)

Another fan supported the claim by saying, "Grace and needy Danny. I find Danny annoying and wish he would go away. Then there is this one point that I wish Grace, Danny, and Olive would go on vacation and never return."  However, some fans are looking at the situation in a different way. While it could be Danny's, there are also some good chances that the baby is actually Ben's. One fan on Twitter has stated, "I think the baby is Ben's...imagine a child born from one of the returned passengers. He/she could inherit that new blood marker and the callings. Grace could start having them by channeling them from the baby." 



 

 

Another fan supported the theory by stating, "The baby was conceived in Jamaica, but when Ben disappeared so did his offspring. Then when he returned...". Hopefully, the baby turns out to be Ben's since Grace is already on the verge of becoming the show's most hated character, yet again.
