Monday, January 6 — that is when Manifest season 2 is coming back after a very long hiatus, and based on all indications, we’re in for something good. The second season looks to be one stuffed full of all sorts of twists and turns, but there does still seem to be some central questions.
What happened on Flight 828? That is a grounding force for much of the series, and it actually doesn’t matter all that much where we travel with it otherwise. The events of that flight are going to continue to hover over everyone … and could they really be revisited? That’s been something teased in some of the promos for a while now, especially this new one that features both Ben and Michaela back aboard a plane. They seem to view it in the air, but also view some of the wreckage. Maybe this is the two of them starting to have some very hyper-realistic shared dreams, or maybe there is something else intriguing going on here.
What do the expiration dates mean? This seems to be a consequence of how long the passengers were away, and it’s definitely something that Ben and Michaela both want answers on. Is this fate, or could something a little bit different be going on here? This is a part of the mythology that is a little bit more recent and because of that, there are a number of greater pathways that need to be explored.
