'Manifest' Season 2 Episode 7 Preview: Will Ben lose Olive to Church of the Believers in 'Emergency Exit'?
Olive's closeness to Adrian and clashing interests with her father is growing
As Ben Stone (Josh Dallas) dashes towards solving the 828 mystery on 'Manifest', distances seem to be cropping up between him and his daughter, Olive Stone (Luna Blaise). Feeling disconnected from her family, she decides to be a part of the Church of the Believers, though she knew her family would be against it.
In Episode 5, Ben fights Adrian (Jared Grimes) and strictly warns him to "stay away from his daughter". However, at the end of Episode 6, there is a major twist as Adrian appears in one of Michaela Stone (Melissa Roxburgh), Saanvi Bahl (Parveen Kaur) and Ben's joint callings. It is eerie how he is not inside, but outside the plane.
The complex ending seems to have sparked rumors of how Adrian is controlling the callings. In the previous episodes, it has been seen how Olive and Adrian are growing closer to each other every passing day. The clashing interests with her father may only end up in Ben losing his daughter to the Church of the Believers.
The summary of Episode 7, titled 'Emergency Exit', reads: "Tensions flare as passengers of Flight 828 finally come to understand the meaning of their increasingly terrifying callings. Afraid of losing his daughter to the Church of the Believers, Ben confronts Adrian. Zeke challenges Michaela's trust and Saanvi seeks help from an old flame."
Fans are pretty worried about Ben and Olive's bond. "And now Olive is gonna go off on Ben. Ugh," one fan posted and another said, "Really hope Ben and Grace get through to Olive before it's too late." Many viewers are dishing out theories about the peacock logo: "#Manifest theory time. Not only did Ben have the peacock calling, but it also ties into the 'Save Her' calling where he saves Olive from the explosion. The Star tarot card symbol on the compass resembles the drawing in the Journal which resembles Ben carrying Olive out of the fire."
The episode is scheduled to release next Monday, February 17, 2020, and only time will tell if the father-daughter duo's bond survives these testing times.
