After a long wait, 'Manifest' fans finally got to see a glimpse of their favorite TV show and things seem to have been shuffled a bit. The episode picked up right where it left off and revealed that it was Michaela Stone who had been shot. What's more, the premiere ended with a shocking cliffhanger when Ben Stone was kidnapped by Robert Vance, the director of the NSA!

Would you have guessed he was still alive? The revelation might bring new changes to the plot and viewers can't wait to see what transpires in the next episode. Titled 'Grounded', it may reveal the real deal about "death dates" and hint on the truth behind Grace's pregnancy.

The summary of the episode reads, "Ben forms an alliance with a student from Flight 828, whose callings either uncovered a violent crime or helped him commit one; as Saanvi strives to further her research into the death date, Grace makes a startling discovery about her pregnancy."

The biggest suspense hovers around Ben's fate and what Vance might possibly want out of him. Going by the synopsis, it seems there will be a new entry in season two, perhaps a young student, who has callings from a horrific crime. 

Another plot twist seems to be around Grace's pregnancy. In episode one, the Stone family celebrated the good news together but in another scene, Grace had an awkward encounter with her boyfriend Danny. Grace's daughter Olive was puzzled to find out that she hadn't told Danny about her pregnancy and that also hints at the possibility of him being the father of the baby. 

With all the complications, there is much to look forward to in the plot of 'Manifest' as more episodes from season two are released. The next episode of the supernatural drama airs Monday, January 13 on NBC at 10 pm ET.
