The ‘Manifest’ Season 2 finale will address the Death Date mystery

Manifest creator, Rake, spoke to TV Guide about the Season 2 finale. The episode promises to focus, in part, on the mysterious Death Date scenario via Zeke’s storyline. What will come of Michaela’s new husband?

Is Zeke doomed to perish, or will he miraculously beat his Death Date? Will a Calling give the passengers a clue to save Zeke in the nick of time? Can Saanvi recover her research and save her friend using her medical expertise?

Since Zeke presumably has only hours to live, viewers will likely get some answers during the finale. But while Zeke slowly freezes to death, the group has additional pressing life and death matters to address.

Previously on Manifest, Cal was abducted by a trio of drug offenders that were arrested by Mick and Jared but later escaped custody. The three thugs were shown to be connected to the shadow figures in Cal’s vision.

As they scramble to save Cal, could malevolent forces be looming to harm the Stone family? The truth is yet to be revealed, but in preparation for the finale, Rake told TV Guide this:

There is the real-world life and death jeopardy that Cal is in as Ben and Michaela and others race to rescue him. On a more mythological scale, the question is whether Cal’s abduction by these shadow figures was somehow triggered by Michaela’s defiance of the Calling, and has that in turn triggered a trajectory towards some kind of apocalypse, as Adrian articulated several episodes back.
