SPOILER ALERT: Beware! Spoilers for ‘Manifest’ Season 3 Episode 1 ‘Tailfin’

The box of mystery opens as ‘Manifest’ returns to screens with new plot twists. The final episode of Season 2 ended with a major cliffhanger and left too many questions on our minds. Perhaps, one of the biggest missing pieces in the puzzle was about Ben's calling. Flight 828 was on fire and then he saw a ship with a new set of faces. 

The new episode — ‘Tailfin’ — takes a new route as Ben Stone (Josh Dallas) lands in Havana, Cuba and sees the tailfin with his own eyes. Michaela Stone (Melissa Roxburgh), meanwhile, is on her honeymoon with Zeke Landon (Matt Long). In a few minutes, we see Ben, Michaela and Cal Stone (Jack Messina) get on a call to discuss a dangerous calling. ​The three also try to find out who is the missing woman and we see flashes of someone hiding away.

Who is the woman trapped in the dark cell?

In the next few minutes of the episode, Michaela tries to identify who she is and ​discusses with Cal how she has light skin and auburn hair... They think she was a passenger. When Cal looks through the huge chart on the wall about the missing people on the plane, he finds out who she really is. 

With the help of Olive Stone (Luna Blaise), he identifies her as Angelina Meyer. Played by Holly Taylor, she enters the new season as a vulnerable, missing woman who lies in the darkroom. Michaela soon finds out that she is in Costa Rica, right where she is on a honeymoon with Zeke.

Who is Angelina Meyer?

Michaela talks to her parents who describe her as “distant” and “closed off”. They tell the two: “One day she packed her bags and left...” In one of the flashes, we see Angelina reaching out for a knife to kill herself... Will she die or can someone save her? 

It is possible that Angelina blames herself for the callings and could have started losing her mind. Right now, we know little about her but as more episodes drop, we might get to see more of her character. The actress who plays her is Holly — a Canadian-American actress and dancer. Taylor has been seen in FX's ‘The Americans’ and other shows like ‘Heartstrings’, ‘Bull’ and ‘The Good Doctor’. It seems like Michaele will save her in the end and make her realize that she might be different but is not crazy.
