Manifest has just wrapped up it’s mid season finale and it still feels like there is a lot to uncover from the show. Whether it’s the mysterious villains, what happened to the passengers and more, every episode adds more mystery to the enigma.
Throughout this article, I will be breaking down everything you need to know about the mid-seasons finale as well as what I think the events will lead to.
There will be heavy spoilers so if you haven’t watched the latest episode then I suggest that you leave now. For everyone, I’m Deffinition and welcome to the channel where I ruin it, so you don’t have to.
Manifest: Ending Explained
Throughout Season 1, we learned of the shadowy organisation that kidnapped the passengers of Flight 828.
In the mid season finale of Manifest, Ben, Michaela, and Vance discovered the location of the missing passengers due to one of Cal’s visions. The group discover the passengers tied up and being experimented on and manage to free them before they are neutralised by the scientists. Whilst the facility was destroyed during an explosion, the group still managed to capture some of The Scientists and hopefully they and the freed passengers can offer some explanation.
The cost of the search was high however and Vance was apparently killed during it. Personally, I think this is a ruse by the character and show to fool us into thinking he is is deceased. Vance will now likely be in thcrosshairsrs due to his involvement in the investigation so it makes sense for him to use this as an opportunity to go into hiding.
Another possibility is that Vance has been captured by Unified Dynamic Systems and that they are now holding him hostage.
What we do learn from Season 1 is that a company tied to Unified Dynamic Systems is behind the events of the show. We learn that the person leading the company is named The Major and he could prove to be the Season’s big bad with his mission: The Singularity Project.
The Major superseeds Belson but that doesn’t mean that the latter doesn’t have a couple of tricks up his sleeve. We learn that Belson has a spy working for him named Autumn, who was allowed to escape so that she could gain Ben’s trust. This will likely prove to be the show’s wildcard in the second part of the season and I can’t wait to see how this pans out.
The Singularity Project
What The Singularity Project entails is still yet to be fully answered but it’s clear that the passengers have been gifted with certain abilities. Cal seems to be able to predict the future whilst Ben has the ability to be guided by a spiritual force. Whether these abilities will grow is unclear but I assume that they will. I can’t wait to see what other powers Manifest…excuse the pun, in the second part of the season.
