'Manifest': Someone is about to die in Episode 9, but who will it be?
It could be anyone, Vance, Jared, Cal, Michaela, or Cox, but whoever it is their death will have some serious consequences.
NBC's Jeff Rake-directed show 'Manifest' is about to draw to a close for the fall, and before returning in January 2019, the show is set to give a smashing fall finale episode. It can be assumed from the promo trailer, that in this episode the good guys and bad guys are finally coming face-to-face, and in the showdown, somebody is about to lose his/her life. Starring Josh Dallas, Melissa Roxburgh, Parveen Kaur, Athena Karkanis, and J.R.Ramirez, 'Manifest' follows the aftermath of the sudden re-appearance of Montego Air Flight 828 which went missing for almost five and half years.
Fans are already making their guesses about whose demise will turn the Stones' world upside down. A Reddit user commented, "I'm pretty sure Jared is the one to get killed in the next episode!! @21 sec in the trailer for 1.09 I found this... Looks like Mick calling for help while crouched over Jared's body!I'm pretty sure Jared is the one to get killed in the next episode!! @21 sec in the trailer for 1.09 I found this... Looks like Mick calling for help while crouched over Jared's body!"
Some fans are also of the opinion that it could be Vance. While there are chances that the person who meets his/her demise in the upcoming episode could be just about anyone on the show, here are top five people who we think will probably meet their end here:
It will be heartbreaking to watch Jared die, especially when he is about to start his new life with Lourdes, who is expecting his child. However, it seems that in the blast it is he who loses his life as he was extremely close to the fire which blew up the entire building. On the other hand, with Matt Long's character Zeke being introduced to the show, when it resumes after fall, Jared will probably have to leave the scene in order to make space for Michaela to move on with Zeke. Considering the number of risks that Jared has been taking up in order to protect Michaela, it can only be assumed that his risks will take him too far this time.
2. Autumn Cox
When the missing passenger, Autumn Cox (played by Shirley Rumierk), makes her way out of UDS' project to experiment on the 11 passengers, it can only be assumed that the UDS will come after her. She carries some significant information with her which could jeopardize their entire experiment to find patterns in the "callings". It only seems fit that the UDS will soon try to hunt down Cox and put an end to her before she reveals any information about their workings. In the promo pictures revealed by NBC a shot shows, Saanvi, Fiona and Cox trying to save themselves from what seems to be a probable explosion in a basement.
Michaela has been the most frequent listener of the "callings". From saving lives to protecting her loved ones, the callings have led her to do things which are fixing her past and helping her cope with the loss of her best friend, Evie. Other than Jared, during the encounter, Michaela stands closest to the fire. However, if another "calling" occurs she probably wouldn't mind getting into the fire to save someone. Also, earlier when Michaela had interacted with one of the prisoners following Kelly's death, he had asked her to own up to her truth. Probably, this time in order to own up to her truth, Michaela will ultimately have to sacrifice her life.
Other than Jared, fans are also guessing that it will probably be Vance who will meet his death this time. One Reddit user mentioned, "I feel like Vance is probably gonna be the first main character to get killed off." Anything can happen on a battlefield, and with all the blasts there are chances that Vance will be a victim. However, probably Detective Powell will have something to do with Vance's death since Vance has been secretly working with Ben to find out the 11 missing passengers. Maybe Vance is now the enemy of NSA, and it will do anything to push him aside.
Cal is in extreme danger right now. Already suffering from leukemia, Cal is also feeling the pain of the other passengers when they are being electrocuted for the experiment. In the last episode, we saw Cal once again succumbing to his clairsensitive powers as the experiments on the passengers have once again begun. He almost died the last time the passengers were being experimented upon, and if it happens once again, there are chances that this time he won't be able to fight back. Cal can also see the future, and in the last episode, he hinted that he did not have a very good feeling about what was going to happen to him.
We think it could be Cal more so because in the synopsis it is stated that Ben and Grace's world will come crashing down with this unfortunate death. Whoever it is, it will cause a major turning point in the plot and we cannot wait to find out what will happen after this when the show returns after fall.
