Manifest Recap: What Happened to Flight 828?

In the season one finale, James Griffin (Marc Menchaca) drowned on dry land exactly 82 hours and 8 minutes after he was resurrected. This led to the Stones realising that the death date (their second and final death) of a resurrected person takes place the exact amount of time between their original death and their resurrection. For the passengers of Flight 828 it’s June 2, 2024.

In season two, when Zeke almost dies of frostbite, it’s discovered the closer they get to their death date, they begin experiencing symptoms of their original deaths. However, it’s also discovered you can avoid your death date if you follow the Callings as Zeke did with his, by saving Cal when he fell into a frozen lake. If you fail to follow, the universe will come to collect what it’s owed as it did with Jace (James McMenamin), Pete (Devin Harjes), and Kory (DazMann Still), who discovered that they were all tied together when Jace failed his last trial, and it lead to all three men’s death. Their deaths cause the Stones to realize that all 828 passengers will be tried together, and therefore, they must figure out a way to get all passengers to follow the Callings to avoid their own death date.

Angelina: A New Deadly Arrival

After Zeke is saved from his death date, Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) and Zeke go on their honeymoon. Michaela gets a Calling leading her to a fellow passenger, Angelina (Holly Taylor), whose parents have locked her in a room because they deemed her Callings to be communication with the devil. Because of this Michaela and Zeke decide to bring Angelina home with them.

Throughout season three, Angelina tries to find a new path away from the abuse she received from her parents in the name of religion. However, because she has grown up under her parents, she shares similar ideologies to them, leading to her getting very attached to Ben and Grace’s daughter, Eden, calling her “guardian angel”. After she misinterprets the words of former 828 cult leader Adrian (Jared Grimes). She accidentally starts a fire in the house and waits for Eden to save her from it, leading to Grace kicking Angelina out of the house. When Cal allows her to stay in his room, Angelina ends up fatally stabbing Grace and fleeing with Eden. 

Ben and Saanvi embark on a mission to get rid of the tailfin and Michaela hands in her badge as anti-828 sentiment rises and to protect Saanvi, who accidentally killed the Major. A 17-year-old Cal returns to be with his dying mother saying, “It’s OK…. I know what we need to do now.” And that’s presumably where Manifest season 4 will pick up on Netflix.

Manifest season 4 part 1 premieres on Nov. 4.
