'Manifest' Season 2 Episode 10 Preview: Grace and the baby are in danger but will the callings save them?
Ben is faced with the tough decision to choose between saving his wife and child and he works with an unlikely ally to save them both
One of the unexpected things about the second season of 'Manifest' was when Grace Stone (Athena Karkanis) started having callings by virtue of being pregnant with Ben Stone's (Josh Dallas) baby.
In the last episode, she even had a shared calling with Ben, her son Cal Stone (Jack Messina) and TJ Morrison (Garrett Wareing). This was when the foursome found themselves on a boat in the middle of a storm, leading to more questions about Flight 828's disappearance and Yusuv Al-Zuras.
The promo for this week's episode will center around Grace's pregnancy, which Karkanis had told MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) will not be "uneventful". In the promo, we see Grace clutching her stomach and saying, "There's something wrong with the baby," while the next shot shows her in a hospital.
We also see that Ben is faced with a tough decision. He has to choose between saving his wife or his baby. In a scary turn of event, the last shot of the promo shows Ben crying. We certainly hope both Grace and the baby are okay. Will the callings save them?
The synopsis offers us more clues. It states: "When Grace's pregnancy complicates the pursuit of a calling, Ben finds himself working alongside an uneasy new ally." We wonder who this ally could be. That it could be one of the X'ers is highly unlikely, but we also wonder whether Adrian — the founder of the Church of Believers — could come back.
In last week's episode where Jared Vasquez (J R Ramirez) arrested Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) to "save her life" after seeing that her union representative and potentially the Internal Affairs officers were X'ers. In this week's episode, Michaela tries to make amends with Jared, who we now know is working undercover with the X'ers. Will Jared and Michaela's friendship finally get repaired?
Meanwhile, the X'ers set their sights on Michaela's current boyfriend Zeke. Zeke may be living his last days as his death date looms ahead — his disappearance was for less than a year, meaning he could die by the end of the season. Will the X'ers lead him to death?
'Manifest' airs on Monday nights at 10/9c on NBC.
