'Manifest' Season 2 Episode 9 Preview: 'Airplane Bottles' hints at Cal's horrific calling and Olive's research
As a storm rages outside the Stone home and anxieties boil over inside, Olive frantically searches for meaning in a centuries-old text
'Manifest' has managed to leave viewers intrigued with its plot twists. Last week, the showrunners left the story hanging with Ben Stone (Josh Dallas) and Olive Stone's (Luna Blaise) research and TJ Morrison's (Garrett Wareing) comeback.
However, the big question remains, what secrets does the centuries-old text hold? Moreover, there's also Saanvi Bahl's (Parveen Kaur) memory loss which could soon affect Zeke Landon (Matt Long) as well. But, in the next episode, fans might finally find Cal Stone (Jack Messina) back in action after he has been missing for a while.
The official summary of the episode reads, "As a storm rages outside the Stone home and anxieties boil over inside, Olive frantically searches for meaning in a centuries-old text. Meanwhile, Michaela faces unexpected scrutiny at work, and Zeke comes to Saanvi's aid when her lab research takes a dangerous turn."
In a 16-second promo, Cal wakes up from a horrific dream and Ben asks him, "What did you see?" When he seems reluctant, Ben presses him for details saying, "Cal, we need to know." Cal finally opens up and tells his father about how he saw Montego Air Flight 828 and confesses he "was there when it disappeared."
Fans are confused and the clip has managed to stir more suspense. "I'm confused. He says he was there when it disappeared. But weren't all the passengers? Maybe he is referring to that one scene in season one when all the passengers were asleep except for him. He saw the bright light out of the window and said, 'it's all connected,'" one comment read. Happy to see Cal's involvement in the callings, another fan said, "Finally, more Cal. Thought they had lost his arc. What happened to his drawing abilities from season 1?!"
The new episode of ‘Manifest’ is slated to release on Monday, March 10, 2020, at 10/9c on NBC.
