Flight 828 finally takes off. After four seasons of solving countless mysteries and trying to figure out how to avoid the date of their deaths, the passengers at the center of Netflix’s “Manifest” have finally found their fate. (Needless to say, massive spoilers ahead.)
“Manifest” focuses on a group of people who fly home to the Bahamas in 2013 – only to touch down in 2018, though they feel like no time has passed. The travelers soon find themselves receiving mysterious visions they call callings, often leading them to save lives or solve crimes. As the show progresses, however, it becomes clear that the calling is actually warning the travelers about an upcoming death date, which they eventually discover does not apply only to them; Instead, the entire world is facing an apocalypse. Piloted by siblings Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) and Ben Stone (Josh Dallas), the Travelers set out to save the world.
“Manifest” was always building towards the end of a climax, and in season four, episode 20, which premiered on June 2, we finally know what that means. If you have questions, you’re not alone – so here’s an overview of what happened.
What happens on the date of death in the “manifest”?
Season four finds most of the travelers stranded in a government-owned detention center, as the rest of the world becomes suspicious of the chaos and danger that seems to constantly surround them. Some have managed to escape imprisonment, however, including Angelina (Holly Taylor), a sociopathic traveler who kills Ben’s wife and kidnaps their young daughter in season three.
Unfortunately for the Stones, in season four, Angelina’s abilities to turn evil are enhanced by a powerful piece of an ancient sapphire she steals. In season three, Saanvi (Parveen Kaur) discovers that the tail fin of Flight 828 is covered with a sapphire, and she and the Stones soon discover that the jewel can give them unlimited calling. Thanks to another traveler, Ben’s son, Cal (Ty Doran) finds a piece of sapphire embedded in his arm, and in the final episode of season four, Cal receives a calling that makes him believe she is Angelina. is about to work with C.J. so they can join Sapphire’s powers can save the world. But Cal eventually remembers that there is another piece of Sapphire with whom he can join forces; Back in season three, Saanvi tosses a sapphire-covered piece of Noah’s Ark (yes, the biblical one) into a volcanic fissure.
The day before the death date, the entire Stone family goes to the Fishers’ place, where they say their emotional goodbyes and somehow fall asleep. In the middle of the night, the rift begins to glow, and Cal steps into the light and disappears into it, creating a giant bright blue pillar that all travelers see and decide to travel towards.
Soon, all the travelers gather at the site of the rift – except for Angelina and the other travelers whom she has convinced to join her side. (She believes that only a few can be saved from the apocalypse.) Meanwhile, the Stones and their allies insist that the fates of all the passengers are tied together.
After nearly all the passengers have arrived, the rift begins spewing lava, and the passengers see none other than Flight 828 emerge from the ground. Ben and Michaela get everyone on the plane, but then Angelina and her crew arrive, and she begins threatening to shoot all the passengers – unless a little lava shoots out of the ground, bringing her down. makes it fall In a moment of desperation, Ben considers killing her, but when Angelina reveals that she regrets killing Grace, he ultimately decides to forgive her and takes her on the plane.
Meanwhile, as all of this is happening, Ben’s daughter, Olive (Luna Blaze), is at home following a clue that inevitably makes her realize that her father must have forgiven Angelina for letting them all live. Have to do
Do “manifest” passengers survive the date of death?
In short: yes – for the most part. After all the passengers on Flight 828 are on board, the original co-pilot begins to steer the plane to avoid the erupting volcanoes below them. As they begin to ascend, some travelers spontaneously burn up and turn to ashes, seemingly because they have not passed the judgment of the Divine Consciousness – the name of the stones represents whatever force was behind their whole ordeal. Has been used to describe it. Angelina and several members of her flock do not escape the Last Judgment, but morally ambiguous couple Egan (Ali Lopez-Soheli) and Adrian (Jared Grimes) make it when the pathologically selfish Egan offers his life in exchange. Adrian’s.
At the last moment, the ashes of all the passengers who did not pass the Last Judgment join together and turn into a shadowy angel of death. Luckily, Michaela and Ben manage to stop this by remembering some of the good things the other passengers have done since the flight landed.
After the angel disappears, the plane flies into a blue light—the same light that entered during the original round of turbulence that started it. The travelers soon find themselves in a brilliantly lit, calm, serene place. When the flight attendant finally opens the door, they discover they are back in 2013 in Queens, NY, where the plane was originally supposed to land. Only those travelers who don’t pass the final judgment don’t make it home.
What Happens to Ben’s Family in the “Manifest” Finale?
After four seasons of running around with the literal fate of their world on their shoulders, the Stone family all get a very happy ending. Cal manages to escape the date of death, but he has flashed back as a young child and seems to remember nothing, while the adults on the plane seem to have their memories intact. Ben also promises his now-surviving wife, Grace (Athena Karkanis), that Saanvi will be able to cure Cal’s cancer, as she was able to do after the first flight. Grace is still alive, and Ben is sure that he and his wife will be able to conceive their third child again, even if the first one is born after the plane has landed.
Do Saanvi and Ben end up together in “Manifest”?
Meanwhile, Saanvi reunites with Alex (Sydney Morton), who she never stopped loving in the time-warp timeline, and the pair are all set to walk off into the sunset. Saanvi and Ben had a one-night stand earlier in the season, but both eventually agreed that it was a one-time thing due to their enduring love for their partners.
Who does Michaela end up with in “Manifest”?
Meanwhile, Michaela finally makes a decision she’s been avoiding since episode one and decides to turn down her faithful boyfriend Jared’s (JR RAMIREZ) marriage proposal. Jared has a casual relationship with Michaela’s friend Dream (Ellen Tamaki) during season three, but when Dream becomes unexpectedly pregnant and Jared is thrilled, Michael learns that Jared is actually with Dream. Will be very happy.
Finally, Michaela remembers that her husband, Zeke (Matt Long), who sacrificed himself to save Cal in the time-jump timeline, is waiting outside. Although they never met in the 2013 timeline, Michaela recalls that he told her that he was in a taxi outside JFK airport when 828 was originally supposed to land. She finds him, and while he doesn’t remember, it seems pretty clear that they won’t have much trouble starting where they left off.
Ultimately, it seems that all the endless, tiresome calls made by the Travelers made some difference in the eyes of the Divine Consciousness, as it helped decide in favor of the Travelers. It’s somewhat unclear what the whole Sapphire ordeal was all about, but regardless, all the passengers wind up together again when it matters most, and despite facing almost certain death, the 828 crew The crew survive against all odds.
Fittingly, “Manifest” passed through the same brush of oblivion. The series was canceled by NBC after season three, but fans started a successful #SaveManifest campaign that led to Netflix picking up the show and renewing it for a final season. Like the stars of “Manifest,” now that it’s all over, devoted fans of the TV show can return to their lives with a little proof that miracles can be possible.
