'Manifest' Season 2 Episode 6: Where is Cal? Fans terribly miss his involvement in the 'death date' mystery
He seems to have no role in the complex discoveries about the death date and the missing 828 passengers despite having a major connection to Zeke Landon and Michaela Stone's callings
If you're a die-hard fan of 'Manifest', you might be missing Cal Stone (Jack Messina) from the recent episodes. The little boy, who had a crucial part to play in the 828 plane callings, seems to be mysteriously absent from the NBC show.
Worried fans can't stop wondering: "Where is Cal?" He seems to have no role in the complex discoveries about the death date and the missing 828 passengers despite having a major connection to Zeke Landon (Matt Long) and Michaela Stone's (Melissa Roxburgh) callings. Is there a good reason for it or did the showrunners simply forget him in all the mess?
Social media is buzzing with concerned tweets about Cal's sudden disappearance. "Where’s Cal though? He’s been missing the last episodes," one fan wrote and another said, "Season 1 of #Manifest was clearly Cal's, but Season 2 is clearly Olive's, and despite it being rather odd that Cal has been sidelined."
After the bizarre twist at the end of episode 6, one fan wrote, "Ok but why was Adrian included in this particular calling? Why wasn't Cal or TJ? How did that rock get there? I have so many questions?" Another posted, "What did Cal see out the window? Will we ever find out?" One fan asked, "Anyone notice Cal wasn’t in this episode? He played such a big role. What happened to that?"
Meanwhile, one viewer had a new theory about Ben's son. "What if none of this was real and it was all just a dream that Cal was having right before getting on the plane?" the tweet read. Another Twitter user wrote, "So first the callings were just randomly connecting Michaela, Zeke and Cal ...and now Ben and Saanvi. I'm assuming there's a reason for this and it's not just to make my shipper heart happy."
Titled 'Emergency Exit', even the next episode's summary has no mention of Cal. Is this just a sabbatical or is there a bigger reason behind it? Only time will tell as more episodes from 'Manifest' air every week.
