'Manifest': Will this new year bring new hope for Michaela?
She has lost her mother, her best friend, and her fiance, and maybe it is time that she gets up on her feet and begin a new life.
Michaela Stone has been one of those who had to face the worst consequences due to the disappearance of Montego Air Flight 828 in NBC show 'Manifest'. The plane went missing for almost five and a half years, but when it finally arrived the passengers, who had not aged a day, began to experience certain "Callings" that were driving them to do things such as save lives, take risks, and rescue people.
Played by Melissa Roxburgh, starring alongside Josh Dallas as Ben Stone, Athena Karkanis as Grace, and JR Ramirez as Jared, Michaela might encounter certain changes in her life that will either be good or will be bad enough to make her regret things.
A fan on Reddit has asked, "How does Jared go about extracting himself from his marriage with Lourdes so he can be with Michaela? And if Michaela breaks up their marriage, what if the supernatural powers that be punish her by killing her?"
Michaela has always followed the "Callings" obediently and they have helped her solve certain problems that might have caused her mental breakdown. While her brother, Ben, interprets these "Callings" as mere imagination, Michaela believes that it might be the cause of some kind of divine intervention. Growing up in a religious household, Michaela followed her mother's footsteps in believing in the existence of a supernatural being, and that faith has helped her interpret the "Callings" as a message of redemption.

In case, she moves from her path and commits a sin, then the "Callings" might just become her biggest nightmare. It would be a sin for Michaela who is a religious believer to break the marriage between two people for her selfish purposes, and on the other hand, Lourdes is pregnant. Hence, it would probably be an unsuitable situation for all three. A fan on Reddit has said, "I feel like the love triangle will continue to be an arch in their stories. I wonder if Lourdes is pregnant because they haven’t followed up in that yet. It’s kind of hard to follow time lines on this show. If she is pregnant, it will make the situation more sticky. There is no Jared can leave Lourdes without destroying hers and Lourdes’ (whatever thread was s left) friendship."

However, we can assume that Matt Long's character might bring in another twist to this love triangle, and also it might help the show to wrap up with the romance and delve completely in the central mystery of the show.
As a fan mentioned, " I hope they bring in more characters. More characters create more character arch’s. She sad...I get it but I hope she comes out of this broody mood soon."
We, too, hope that this new year brings in some new things for Michaela to concentrate upon. 'Manifest' returns to NBC on January 7.
