'Manifest' stars Josh Dallas and Daryl Edwards celebrate November 4, 2018, the day Montego Air Flight 828 returned
We all know the speech that Vance delivered when the passengers got off the plane, and what are the odds...it was that very day!
November 4, 2018 is a momentous day in NBC's 'Manifest' as it is on this day Montego Air Flight 828 reappears after reported missing for nearly five years.
Actors Josh Dallas (who plays Ben Stone) and Daryl Edwards (plays NSA Director Vance) highlighted this fact in the tweets they posted on Sunday, November 4.
The Jeff Rake directed show, which airs every Sunday at 10 pm on NBC, follows the sudden disappearance of Montego Air Flight 828 soon after it left Jamaica in 2013. However, the plane returned in 2018, on November 4, without the passengers having aged a day.
Taking to Twitter, Edwards posted a clip of him delivering a part of one of the most noted piece of dialogues in the show, where Vance tells the passengers that they have been presumed dead for almost five years.
Edwards' character, Vance, is certainly not the good cop in the show. He is disliked by the passengers for his authoritative nature, and his intention to extract the "truth" out of the passengers. However, he seems to have a pretty tough competitor in Ben Stone, who is clearly not ready to submit to the NSA's investigation. While Vance has been interrogating each and every passenger to find out what happened on that flight, Ben has been interrogating the passengers about their vocation. Neither of the two is ready to accept the hand of some Supreme Being in the matter, but unlike Ben, Vance is determined that this is nothing but a terrorist organization's work.
Unfortunately, for Vance, no terror organization has admitted their hand in the disappearance of the plane, but he continues to be suspicious of the passengers, specifically about Saanvi (played by Parveen Kaur) and Bethany (played by Mugga) who had helped hide Thomas, the only passenger whose fingerprints were not identified at the time of investigation. However, he seems to fall behind in his investigation as there some secrets that Ben and Saanvi are hiding from him. While things are about to get pretty intense between Ben and Vance in the upcoming episode on Monday, Josh Dallas, too, took to Twitter to mark their return from the flight.
Fans who have been waiting for almost two weeks for the sixth episode -- due to NBC airing its Halloween special 'A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway' in the same slot as 'Manifest' -- immediately showed their excitement for the show's return.
One fan commented, "And TOMORROW is an all new episode of #Manifest ! I’m READY!! Finally!!! ", while another fan recalled the day as the first time when Ben Stone is introduced to the audience. "So was the day we met Ben Stone...what lied ahead was only the beginning. I’m glad you’ve brought this character to life & into #Manifesters hearts/lives. Thank you JD for being such a talented actor and allowing us to go on your acting journey with you. #Manifest."
Manifest airs on NBC on Mondays at 10 pm.
