This week’s episode of Manifest sees Ben (Josh Dallas) attempting to disentangle himself completely from the plane, its passengers and the callings.
Oct. 22nd’s “Connecting Flights” will see Ben take Cal (Jack Messina) on a special father/son outing, where, in attempt to escape from the idea that recent events are all connected, each activity is decided by the toss of a coin.
At first, Ben’s strategy seems to work. However, as the day progresses, and Cal decides to truly run with the idea, Ben cannot help but notice that even seemingly random events are all leading towards the same outcome.
Meanwhile, in a series of flashbacks to the past, we will see how Jared (J.R. Ramirez) and Grace’s (Athena Karkanis) heartbreak in the aftermath of the loss of Ben and Michaela led to the origins of their current relationships with bereaved widower Danny (Daniel Sunjata), and distraught best friend Lourdes (Victoria Cartagena).
And in the present day, as Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) receives startling personal advice from a loved one about Jared, flight attendant Bethany Collins (Mugga) finds that her struggles to save stowaway Thomas may have all been in vain.
In advance of tonight’s episode, we’ve got two exclusive new sneak peek clips to share. In the first, a flashback to Flight 828’s disappearance highlights the confusion and fear of Ben and Michaela’s family, while Jared and Grace attempt to find answers.
Meanwhile, in clip 2, Ben and Michaela argue over the meaning behind the callings and just how dangerous pursuing the voices might be for all concerned.
The “Connecting Flights” episode of Manifest airs Monday, October 22 (10:00PM – 11:00PM) on NBC.
