'Manifest' has managed to sustain the mystery for a long time in Season 2 which seems to only grow after the season finale. 

Titled 'Icing Conditions', Episode 13 will be the last one for this season and fans can't wait for the Stone family to find all the answers they have been looking for. But, with all the loose ends and unanswered questions, it seems like the show will end with a big cliffhanger. 

Nevertheless, there were quite a lot of lovely scenes this season. What was your favorite moment from 'Manifest' Season 2? Before the season finale airs, here are the top five moments to look back at from the NBC show.

Jared: Bad cop to good cop

Titled 'Course Deviation', Episode 10 finally reveals Jared's (JR Ramirez) true intentions and shows what a good cop and a human being he is. Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) and Jared team up to arrest the X'ers. His character's change of heart came as a huge relief for fans and they couldn't help but In all of this, it is JR Ramirez's performance that really makes an impact and fills hearts with awe. The various shades of his character on display add quite a lot of depth to the scenes. 

What's more, his true love for Michaela is a game-changer and many fans are drawn towards his character more than Zeke (Matt Long).

Ben's calling on a boat

Titled 'Airplane Bottles', Episode 9 featured Ben Stone (Josh Dallas), his wife Grace (Athena Karkanis), son Cal (Jack Messina), and TJ Morrison (Garrett Wareing) having a shared calling which was later deduced by Olive Stone (Luna Blaise) to be similar to Yusuv Al-Zuras and his men's time on a boat. To recall, Olive and TJ learned that Al-Zuras's boat disappeared just like Flight 828 with him and his men experiencing the "voice of God," or as our heroes know it as 'a calling'. 

With comparisons to 'Lost' and Josh Dallas in the lead role, 'Manifest' already has a lot of similarities with ABC's 'Once Upon A Time' (OUAT), where Dallas played the Prince Charming. With the boat scene, however, fans could not help but reminisce about the fairytale-inspired fantasy adventure drama.

Grace or the baby: Who will be safe?

The writers almost gave us a scare with this one. When Grace was taken to the hospital, the doctors told her that she wasn't expecting the delivery for at least two months. As the threat to mom and baby's life loomed, Ben and Grace looked into each other's eyes like they were about to lose each other. 

"Take care of our kids, no matter what," Grace told Ben to promise her. While Ben initially told the doctor to save the baby, he saw his kids Olive Stone (Luna Blaise) and Cal Stone (Jack Messina) hugging their mother and changed his mind. Thankfully, both the mom and the baby were saved and the little one was named Eden.

TJ's death and his romance with Olive

While Olive was drifting towards the Church of Believers, TJ did a better job than Ben in understanding what she was going through. Their romance was no less than adorable. Just when viewers thought Olive and TJ were going to be happy together, the show ripped off the carpet from right under us. TJ sacrificed himself so that Ben could take Olive out of the burning building. The show teased TJ's death for a long time, before getting him back and that was one of the biggest highlights this season.

Michaela-Zeke's romantic wedding

Zeke and Michaela's wedding ceremony was no less than a fairytale as songs like 'Beyond' by Leon Bridges and 'Truly, Madly, Deeper' by Savage Garden played in the background. The expressions on everyone's faces were enough to say a million words. Titled 'Call Sign', the episode was filled with emotional moments reminiscing and reliving memories from the past. 

The highlight, however, was JR Remirez's marvelous performance. Jared shook hands with Zeke and told him: "It's all good." The scene totally made fans fall in love with Ramirez's character. The look on Jared's face said everything he feels. It is poetically unjust. Meanwhile, as Michaela and Zeke said their vows, everyone had a glint of a tear in their eyes.
