‘Manifest’ Season 3 Episode 2 ‘Deadhead’: Why does Ben's hand glow and how are the three dark shadows alive?
The episode ended with a major cliffhanger as the three shadows who troubled Cal Stone (Jack Messina) in his callings continue to plague his mind
Shocks and surprises are a part of the ‘Manifest’ universe and the season three premiere was no different. The episode ended with a major cliffhanger as the three shadows who troubled Cal Stone (Jack Messina) in his callings continue to plague his mind. The three men were identified as — Kory Jephers (DazMann Still), a metro bus driver who helped deliver stolen cold medicine to a meth lab run by two brothers, Jace (James McMenamin) and Pete Baylor (Devin Harjes). Where are they now?
It seems like the Stone family has quite a lot to look forward to and three shadows will not let them be in peace for too long. After the first episode ‘Tailfin’, here's all the scoop from the next episode, titled ‘DeadHead’.
The summary of the new episode reads: “A threat to the Stone family tests Michaela's commitment to play by the rules and forces Grace to make a difficult decision; Ben enlists the aid of an old rival to save an old friend; Olive helps a new friend solve a calling.” Moreover, in a promo, we see a terrified Michaela Stone (Melissa Roxburgh) saying that the three guys who were after Cal are alive. Ben Stone (Josh Dallas) worriedly says, “Who knows what they are capable of...”
In another scene, Ben looks at his hand that starts glowing and the promo ends with a shot of the Flight 828 right in front of Ben. Is that one of his callings of reality? Well, we will have to wait and watch. Until then, let's take a look at all the theories posted by fans online.
Catch the promo here:
A tweet from Manifest Writers' Room read: “Ben dropping gems on us and ahhh his hand!” Formulating what might happen on the show, one fan said, “What’s happening with Ben’s hand? Also, what does this guy mean with I want you to touch the tailfin again. Is he gonna arrest ben?”
One fan posted, “WAIT so that looked like the lake where Zeke died and then those were the three shadows that were following cal all of last season?? and why is ben’s hand glowing?? WHAT IS HAPPENING???” and another wrote, “So Ben's hand glows now?” One fan wrote, “Ben’s hand is glowing from him touching the tail fin of Flight 828.”

For now, we can safely say that the glow is because of touching the tailfin... but there's more magic to the mystery, don't you think so? The episode has been directed by Romeo Tirone and written by Jeff Rake & Bobak Esfarjani.
